Program Specifics

We designed our program to be fully comprehensive. Students will have the opportunity to practice and perfect their skills while learning professional business building, retail knowledge, and more. Our curriculum is laid out in 3 levels of instruction, starting with foundational knowledge and moving up to advanced techniques. Curriculum covers:

  • Professional Development
  • Haircutting
  • Hairstyling
  • Haircoloring
  • Chemical Services
  • Permanent Waves
  • Salon Treatments
  • Basic Skincare
  • Nail Care
  • Manicuring
  • Pedicuring
  • Salon Business
  • State Laws and Regulations
  • And More!

Our students learn in many ways. All of our cosmetology textbooks are now ebooks that students can access on the iPads provided to them and we teach foundational information in theory as well as practical application in our student salon*. In addition, we offer students the chance to experience career fairs and professional demonstrations, as well as community outreach and service.

Community Ties

Jean Madeline Aveda Institute has made it a priority to give back to our local communities. We are involved in various service activities like working with our local children's hospital and the Ronald McDonald House.

A Glowing Reputation

Jean Madeline was started in 1933 by Jean Kurlan and Madeline Brown who wanted to bring style and fashion to Philadelphia. 33' brought us the Jean Madeline Salons and the Adolf Biecker Spas and Salons. After realizing the need for quality education, the first Jean Madeline Education Center of Cosmetology came about in 1987. Since then, we have taken pride in our abilities to change, grow, and improve our educational system with the growing needs of the beauty industry.
