The Institute of Beauty and Wellness (IBW) purchased the Aveda Institute Madison on Monday, February 16, 2015. The facility, formally known as Aveda Institute VICI, will continue the current Aveda full-time Cosmetology program and introduce a three-day accelerated Cosmetology program and begin the first Esthiology program in the area with full and part-time classes this spring. In addition, a full selection of Aveda hair and skin services will be available to the public.
“We’re thrilled to be able to expand our brand to the Madison area,” IBW Owner and CEO Susan Haise says. “The Madison market gives us an opportunity to reach more students interested in careers in the beauty industry.”
