beauty schools in Boise & Twin Falls, Idaho


Professional Salon Training From A Professional Salon Owner

Aveda Institute Boise and Aveda Institute Twin Falls were founded on the idea that education continues after graduation and licensure. As salon owners themselves, our owners were inspired to educate the future of beauty professionals after struggling to find any to hire in their own salon. They wanted to fill the gap. That’s why they’ve helped personally develop our curriculum, brought in the Aveda brand, and worked hands-on with educators and students in our schools. Our owner,  Nathan Shaw, truly sets us apart from other beauty schools. Here you can learn from a real professional who had dreams – just like yours – that he made a reality. What else can our schools offer you?

Financial Aid

Difficulty funding your education doesn’t have to block your road to a bright future. Aveda Institute Boise and Aveda Institute Twin Falls both offer financial aid to those who qualify in our cosmetology and esthetics programs. Now it’s about you and what you can achieve.

Curriculum That Does More

You are innovative, you are inspired, and you want to make a difference. You love beauty and you want to make it your career. To do that, you’ll need to learn more than the basics of beauty. You need an education that provides additional skill sets. Our owners teach a class that walks you through how to open your own salon and run a business. You can learn business skills, marketing, and more! If you see yourself owning a salon in the future, your education should prepare you today!

Additional Training

We bring in advanced training opportunities for our graduates and other licensed professionals. We cover everything from advance cutting classes to additional certifications like Bella Lash eyelash extensions and Make-up Designory (MUD) makeup artistry. Your license is something you have for years to come. Continue to invest in yourself and your craft by learning skills that are in demand!

The Aveda Brand

Aveda was created with a mission. The founder was a driving force in holistic beauty and wanted to change the way the industry was impacting our environment.

the aveda mission

At Aveda Institute Boise and Aveda Institute Twin Falls, we want to echo that sentiment. Our students are caring, kind, innovative, and unique. What our entire family of students, staff, and owners want to do is push the boundaries of creativity and sustainability. It’s important to us to make a difference in the lives around us by pushing the envelope what beauty has been and should be. Beauty is changing lives and giving back to the world around us. You can color outside the lines, do something unexpected, and help the world be better at our institutes.

Aveda Idaho B Corp Certification

Aveda Corporation* (“Aveda”) is now B Corp Certified! B Corp is a globally renowned certification awarded to companies who focus on people and the planet before profits, using business as a force for good.

This incredible achievement further demonstrates Aveda’s decades-long commitment to social and environmental responsibility and is a powerful example of our Aveda Mission in action. Facilitated by B Lab, Aveda underwent a rigorous and extensive review of its total environmental and social impact and was assessed across five pillars: governance, workers, community, environment, and customers, and achieved an overall impact score of 89.6, far exceeding the 50.9 average score of companies undergoing the assessment. Aveda will be held to high standards of accountability, undergoing a recertification process every three years to update its impact assessment and recertify as a B Corp.

In addition to its B Corp Certification, Aveda became a public benefit corporation, which acknowledges that the business operates for both profit and to produce a public benefit and by law can consider the impact of its decisions on stakeholders.
