Taking a holistic approach is a natural part of Aveda. Now with LEARN AVEDA, hairstylists can hone their skills virtually anywhere. Produced in Canada, Aveda’s cut and style curriculum will not only enable educators to provide standardized training but by using the pause and practice videos, it will offer hairstylists the flexibility to learn. Based on classic shapes and techniques, the curriculum guides hairstylists through each step and features 15 different haircuts.
As Aveda Canada’s president Ray Cilvello says the curriculum’s approach incorporates a common language that is consistent for hairstylists, educators and salon owners. With the growth in online learning, one of the key points of difference for Learn Aveda is the consistent delivery of education on a global level, one that also allows students to take an active role in the learning process. In addition, this accessible learning (available 24-hours a day, seven days a week) also allows hairstylists the ability to review what they’ve learned and refine their skills independently.
For Ricardo Dinis, Aveda’s global artistic director, hair cutting, Learn Aveda means more coaching opportunities for educators. Rather than focusing on one demonstration, Denis says that instructors are able to focus more attention on individuals in class and offer better and more critical feedback.
In keeping with Aveda’s wellness approach, the curriculum also emphasizes the importance of body positioning, something that is frequently overlooked by hairstylists. As Aveda Canada’s senior creative director, Tristan Morrision says that an awareness of their posture and body movement not only contributes to a hairstylist physical health, but it also enhances their artistry.
