take your career to the next level as a beauty educator!
Aveda Idaho’s educator program is a 500-1000 hour course.
Teaching cosmetology is the crossroads where passion for beauty and passion for teaching meet. Cosmetology instructors have the opportunity to train the next generation of beauty professionals, which means you can make a lasting difference!
The cosmetology instructor program at Aveda Institute Idaho in Twin Falls and Boise is 500 hours or 1000 hours in length depending on your experience. Cosmetologists with less than three years of experience working behind the chair are required to complete the 1000 hour program, while cosmetologists with over three years of experience can complete the program in 500 hours. The cosmetology instructor program is offered on a full-time schedule, which is designed to help you get out there and start teaching as soon as possible.
What is it Like in the Instructor Program?
Attending a cosmetology instructor program will often feel similar to being a cosmetology student. Instructors get to learn more advanced cosmetology practices and principles through coursework and lectures, similar to how cosmetology students learn. Instructors also have the unique opportunity to oversee the work of cosmetology students as they perform services in the student salon.
What Does it Take to Become a Cosmetology Instructor?
Finding students for our cosmetology instructor program is different than finding students for cosmetology or esthetics programs. We ultimately want to find students that we could eventually hire to work at the school, so we look for people who are the perfect fit both for the educator program and also for the school itself. Employment is also the end goal of the instructor program, so even if we can’t hire on our instructor students after graduation, we strive to help them find an instructor position.
Does The Cosmetology Instructor Program Offer Financial Aid?
The cosmetology instructor program at Aveda Institute Idaho also differs slightly from the general cosmetology or esthetics programs. Financial aid opportunities are available for qualifying students who are enrolled in the 1000 hour program. Because of the short duration, students enrolled in the 500 hour program would not be eligible for financial aid.
The good news for students in both programs is that many students at Aveda Institute Idaho have qualified for Pell Grants. Many of our students have qualified for grants that exceed the cost of the program, which means they can pay for the program and have some money left over without taking any loans!

How Does Becoming an Instructor Help my Career?
The cosmetology instructor program at Aveda Institute Idaho is where you can elevate your career as a cosmetologist. New doors and opportunities open up for graduates that may not have been available before. One of the most exciting options for instructors is that they can earn certification with Aveda hair cut and color systems, both of which would not have been available without completing the instructor program. Growing within the Aveda network continues to open opportunities for you to add to your skill set and can help you reach your goals!
