Hello everyone! I am Hannah Barnette and I am about to take you through my year-long journey at Aveda Institute in Charlotte, NC. I am very excited to get started! I believe that this is what I really want to do and what interests me. It is exciting to know that I could be doing what I love and getting paid for it for the rest of my life.

So, I moved to Charlotte, NC, from Chicago, IL, in the beginning of November of 2015 for school. The Aveda Institute in Charlotte was the most put together and welcoming school out of all of the Aveda Institutes - and it had the highest graduation rate. Getting started at this school couldn’t come soon enough!

Going through Camp Aveda was a great experience. I learned about Aveda's history, all about their products, and I met the students I was about to spend the next year of my life with. Getting a GIANT box of my cosmetology supplies was amazing! It took SO long to open and get organized because of how much there was! I went through it easily three times the day I got it. I am SO excited to really dive into the cosmetology world!

The first day we learned how to section hair! The first day! I was not expecting to get my hands on a mannequin the first day of class. I felt professional already! I am very interested in seeing what there is to come...

See you in two weeks,

Hannah <3

MAKEOVER: Basic Blonde To Purple/Lilac Melt

Maggie Mulhern | February 9, 2017

Marianne Lohr (@mannie_mak), a freelance artist based in Bethlehem,PA., says "My new client came in to see me because she was never happy with her blonde and how gold/yellow it was. She wanted to be an all over platinum blonde at first, but then had mentioned how she's always wanted to have purple hair. Her dream came true that day." Details here.
