The foundation of Esthiology is in the care and maintenance of your skin. From its humble beginnings centuries ago, this practice has grown into the holistic foundation of health that thousands take advantage of each day. With a positive focus of wellbeing and self care, esthetics has become that cornerstone of the Aveda philosophies and lifestyles.


The esthetics program at Aveda Institute Madison does more than just educate our students in how to care for skin. As an Aveda school we have developed a curriculum that prepares our students for an uplifting career.
With a refined focus on technology, and an iPad provided to each student, we want our students to be prepared for the esthetics industry, and the demands of today.
We know, however, that your education goes beyond graduation, which is why we always welcome our students back for continuing education opportunities and additional certifications.
At Aveda Institute Madison we work to support you from the beginning of your education and throughout your career.


At The Aveda Institute Madison, we focus on a curriculum that builds a solid foundation of success for our students. Many of the skills and techniques that our program focuses on include:

  • Waxing
  • Facials
  • Anatomy
  • Skin Physiology
  • Safety and Sanitation
  • Body Treatments
  • Makeup and Color Analysis
  • Business Management
  • The Living Aveda philosophies and techniques
  • Certification in Classic Lash Extensions by Lash Addict

Because lash extension services are rising in popularity, we prepare our students to graduate with a strong foundation in lash extensions. We have partnered with Lash Addict in order to ensure that our esthetic students receive basic training in classic lash extension. Our faculty oversees the students’ work while serving guests in the clinic lab during the gamma level of training.

With program curriculum tailored to today’s demanding esthetics industry, you can stay calm knowing that you will feel confident in yourself and your future success. Our salon clinic is outfitted beautifully, giving you access to professional quality supplies and an environment that is similar to some of the most refined and sought after spas.
Fueled by the Aveda branding that many spa owners and clients are looking for, you will receive an education focused on holistic practices, that focuses on more than just skin, but on the mind, body, and spirit.
Our instructors are dedicated to this methodology, attending an Ayurveda summit each year as they seek to expand their knowledge and spread these philosophies and practices onto the next generation of Aveda professionals.


If you are dedicated and focused, our esthiology program could be the perfect fit to assist you in reaching your dreams. With passionate instructors dedicated to you and to the Aveda philosophy, your success is within reach.
