Helping Hands: Douglas J Aveda Institute in the Community

Jun 14 2017

At Douglas J Aveda Institute, we believe in working for the greater good for everyone around us. That’s why we are heavily involved with our surrounding communities. Our students and staff are big supporters of our community involvement, and they push us to get more and more involved every year. Here are a few of the things that you can find us doing.

  • Complimentary Haircuts and Blowouts
  • The 3-Day: Massage to Breast Cancer Survivors
  • Makeovers for Cancer Patients
  • Haircuts for Homeless Veterans
  • Manicures for Seniors
  • Charitable Fashion Shows


The beauty and wellness industries are all about helping others. Cosmetologists, estheticians and massage therapists alike are all driven by their passion for helping others feel better or more confident. We believe this starts at home.

If we can make a difference locally, we can make a difference, over time, much further than our surrounding areas. With campuses in Tennessee, Illinois and Michigan, we are confident that we can make a positive, long-lasting impact.

Being kind to each other and the Earth is an important aspect of the Aveda brand as a whole. Aveda products are created with beauty, wellness, and a positive influence on the environment in mind. Aveda is cruelty free and never tests, or asks others to test, on animals. The Aveda mission reflects our goals perfectly: “Our mission at Aveda is to care for the world we live in. From the products we make to the ways in which we give back to society. At Aveda, we strive to set an example for environmental leadership and responsibility, not just in the world of beauty, but around the world.”


If you’re ready to make a difference in your life and in your community, consider a career in beauty or wellness. We offer Cosmetology and Esthiology programs at all of our campuses, and Massage Therapy is available at select campuses.
