We are the Cinta Aveda Institute, a state-of-the-art cosmetology and esthiology academy located in San Francisco’s thriving financial district. As a member of the internationally-renowned Aveda Institute network, we provide a premium experience for our students while remaining committed to environmental sustainability.
Our culture is unique from most beauty schools. The Aveda brand is synonymous with environmental responsibility and as an Aveda partner, we work to improve the global community through projects like Clean Water Fund, Earth Day, and local environmental initiatives. At Cinta Aveda, each student receives extraordinary one-on-one attention from our talented faculty, learning not only technical skills but also the professional business-building strategies necessary for a successful career in the industry. The Institute itself is beautiful and modern, equipped with highest-quality facilities for learning and practicing the craft.
Cinta Avedas partnership with the Aveda network has attracted the best and brightest students from Northern California and beyond. We offer a variety of programs, from licensure in Cosmetology, Esthiology, and Barbering to CIDESCO qualification. The CIDESCO program is akin to a graduate school program for skin service professionals, and we are proud to say we are the only Institute in California that offers this prestigious international certification.
Our foundation with Cinta Salon, one of San Francisco’s premiere full-service salons and an Intercoiffure member, is our foundation to what we train our students to expect from the industry. – less
