Ed and Nancy Brown

The Founders of both campuses (Nancy Brown, Ed Brown, and Holly Brown) and Staff at Brown Aveda Institute have taken many steps to provide you with an environment which will give you the most rewarding learning experience of your adult career. All of our Board Members and Staff have been involved in the hairdressing profession for many years and want to share all of our lessons learned with you in the hope that you will receive all the rewards that a challenging yet fulfilling career offers.

We ask only for your commitment to excellence as we partner students and teachers to share knowledge. We encourage you to experience the techniques rather than just observe them.

Most importantly to begin your career knowing that there is much left to understand and that your learning begins when you pass the State exam!
