AVEDA INSTITUTE L.A.: California’s first Aveda Institute officially celebrated the opening of its 11,000-square-foot, 75-station facility near the University of California in Los Angeles on May 5. The institute has the capacity for 240 students and around 85 are already enrolled. The tuition is nearly $20,000 for a yearlong program. “We are seeing a whole lot more interest in the beauty industry because the job can’t be exported overseas,” said Patrick Thompson, president of the Aveda Institute in Los Angeles as well as institutes in Columbus, Ohio, and Chapel Hill, N.C. Thompson is planning to put five institutes in Southern California, with possible future locations in San Diego, Orange County, San Bernardino County and northern Los Angeles.
