An Aveda Life: Meet Alumni Colette Hood

At Aveda Idaho, we are passionate about our students. We’re committed to giving them the best possible education to prepare them for the passion-filled career that awaits them after graduation.
That commitment to our students doesn’t stop when they leave our facilities, however. It continues long after. More than just advanced classes and job placement services, we cheer our students on as they do great things with their lives.
This month we are featuring one of our amazing alumni, Colette Hood. Join us in celebrating her amazing accomplishments as we take a peek into a future that could await you.

Alumni colleteHer Time At Aveda Idaho

After attending our Boise campus, Colette fell in love with the products, staff, and students that she still considers a huge part of her life. It was those instructors that contributed so deeply to her education, giving her a heavy passion for the art of hair, specifically color formation.
The building of color, the technique of a perfect blend, and the experimentation with some of the fun new trends helped to build that passion, and one that has only grown.
Graduating 2013 with a head full of gorgeous hair, Colette left our Boise campus ready for the beautiful world that awaited her.

Time to Work!

Colette found a job within just a few months of graduating from our program, finding her first home at an Aveda salon. It was within these familiar surroundings that Colette was able to master her skills and conquer her greatest challenge to date: “Building her client book.”
Building a client book is often one of the most challenging tasks a new stylist faces, but with tenacious grit it can be conquered. Colette took this challenge by the horns using techniques she learned here at Aveda Idaho.

Hair to New Heights

There is more to a career in beauty than the hair on your head, and Colette has taken every opportunity in stride. After becoming a wax specialist and reaching top tier-status, she turned her passion towards teaching, becoming a healing education for an international brand. It is this position she holds currently, loving every minute.

There are only more amazing things in store for Colette, and we wish her luck through every step. As with all of our students, we continue to cheer her on and are here for every obstacle and success that may await her in her beautiful journey!

If you are interested in creating your own beautiful journey give us a call and discover how we can help you take your first step, and will be there until your last.
