Walk for Water PROVO

What a perfect day we had for our annual walk for water to support our local Earth month partner Western Resource Advocates! Starting the day off with our Walk for Water was the best – Bright and early and ready to race/walk for a great cause. We had a great turn out not just from the students but from their beloved pets as well! It was so much fun to have the animals apart of the day. This event alone raised $1,115(and counting)!

An Aveda Earth Month History Lesson

Did you know…

-Since 1999, Aveda has raised $32 million dollars for clean water and water conservation causes across the globe?

-Last year, the Aveda network came together to raise $5.5 million dollars for Aveda Earth Month?

-Last year, the Inspire Greatness Institutes, contributed over $100k to Aveda Earth Month?

-This year, Aveda’s goal is $6 million dollars?

Why is this so important?  Lack of access to water and the lack of conservation are global issues.  Around the world, 780 million people lack access to clean water and it is one of the leading causes of infant deaths. (Source At the IG Institutes, we get to not only take care of our local communities through our Earth Month partner, Western Resource Advocates, but we also support the global cause through the sales of the limited edition Light the Way Candles.  Check out the video below, inspired by the artwork of children in India, for more info!  And stay tuned for more info about our Earth Month campaign and progress!

Back in October the Aveda Institute in Provo held their PINK Hair and Makeup Show! It was such a fun night! The student’s work was great, and we even enjoyed some entertainment before the big fashion show with a vocal group, dance team, and a magician! Besides all the fun talent we got to see that night we had a big silent auction to help raise even more money to go towards Breast Cancer Research. We had so many generous people and companies donate to our silent auction. Here at AIP we raised over $6,000 for cruelty free breast cancer research from our PINK show! Aveda is always looking for ways to give back, and love that we were able to do that while showcasing the student’s talent as well.


Hunger Games Fashion Show!

Our AMP students had the opportunity to help out a local Aveda Salon, Life Salon and Spa, and get models ready for the Hunger Games premier and local movie theater Fashion Show Event! The students did amazing work, and made the models look like they had just come from the capital! Heggy led our talented group of students!

Millie’s Princess Foundation


We had such an awesome opportunity to have some of our esthetician students and staff go to salt lake and be involved with the Millie’s Princess Foundation. The Aveda Salon Landis hosted the event in honor of Amelia Flamm, who is the little girl the foundation was named after. She passed away 5 months ago from a 4 year battle with cancer. Millie was 7 when she passed.

Her family wanted to start a foundation that could help other families with children that have terminal illnesses. Financially it is a huge burden. This charity helps raise money to help families with their financial loads, so they are able to have more time with their loved ones.

During Millie’s short time on this Earth, she reminded others to see the beauty everywhere.

So in honor of her life, please partake in an act of kindness today!!

We all enjoyed our time meeting families and friends of Millie’s.
Lots of nails were painted, Lipstick applied… And the happiest little girls meeting their favorite princesses.
