  • Student Aveda PDX Beauty School Hair

We had the pleasure of catching up with Salon Life student Alyssa and getting to know her a little bit more. Alyssa is not only a talented stylist but is also incredibly humbled and easy going. Alyssa likes to start the day by sipping on a cup of coffee in her jammies breathing in the beauty of life. A perfect day for Alyssa would include roaming around town with friends having a great laugh, ending with a musical jam sesh! Here is a little peek into what I got to learn about this fun loving gal.

Many of us have floated in and out of student services, seeking advice, solace and even a few minutes of escape. Kristin who works behind that little glass window is no stranger to the many emotions that can come and go and she is here to help with the little stressors that can sometimes feel overwhelming! That made her the PERFECT person to ask about one of Aveda's classic products, Hand Relief, because much like hand relief, Kristin is no stranger to reliving tension caused by everyday tasks and worries!

Here at the Aveda Institute Portland we wear all black. You might imagine a somber environment but it is quite the opposite. Our students manage to use their everyday black as a unique canvas for their self expression. In order to capture the creativity we have been stopping students who show up dressed to kill to find out how they make Aveda dress code their own!

First up is salon life student Rachel, who caught our eye with her soft and casual outfit! But if we are being honest the outfit is ALL about that headband!

Here at the Aveda Institute Portland we have a tradition of celebrating Earth Month in style. Whether it's on a runway or behind the chair we have made a point of unifying two very different worlds; one of nature and earth and the other of hair and skin.
