beauty school in Boise, Idaho

“I loved the school from the first experience I had stepping into the building. Everyone was so friendly and I knew it was going to be a good fit.” —Student Testimonial

Want to see our Boise campus for yourself? We would love to have you visit for a one-on-one tour!

Our first location opened its doors in Boise, Idaho in 2007 as a non-Aveda affiliated school. The goal was to help educate future cosmetologists and create salon-ready graduates.

In 2012, we made our transition to an Aveda school, and we have to say it was one of the best decisions we’ve made. We brought the level of salon professionalism and product luxury up a notch in our community. Our owners are extremely proud of the culture, curriculum, and standard of learning that we have set over the years.

Students here are exposed to a culture that we’ve cultivated over years of experience. It’s important to us that they understand the goals of a beauty education at our institute: to be prepared to pursue a career with passion and knowledge. From in-depth product knowledge to learning elements of business ownership, we are excited to help shape the future of the beauty industry.

The Aveda Institute Boise Experience

Natural. Radiant. Clean. Unique.

Our Boise location is full of great natural light, and it creates a salon and learning experience that sets us apart. Our 10,000 square foot campus is outfitted with 40 styling stations, clean wood floors, and timeless white walls that open up space so students have plenty of room to learn.

In this environment, our students are encouraged to learn and master both classic and trendy styles in hair cutting, coloring, men’s grooming, makeup artistry, and nail design. If you’re looking to change up your beauty routine, contact us. One of our students would be happy to help you step up your beauty game.

What Programs Are Offered at Aveda Institute Boise?

Our flagship location offers four beautiful programs. Cosmetology (full-time and part-time), esthetics (full-time), barbering (full-time), and nail technology (three days a week). No matter which program you choose to enroll in, you will be met with a curriculum that can teach you the practical and theoretical skills required for the profession you wish to pursue.

In addition to hard skills, we teach business, marketing, networking, and other business-related topics. Our owners have developed this side of our curriculum to help better prepare students for life outside our school’s doors.

We offer financial aid to those who qualify at our Boise campus.
