Learn from people who love what they do

The amazing team of men and women who work at Avenue Five Institute aren’t here because they have to be. They’re here because they want to be. Our instructors know what works and what doesn’t from years of professional experience in salons and spas. And they’re dedicated to giving you the skills, confidence and support you need to launch your future.

Sassoon-trained Cosmetology Educators

Sassoon has been training many of the world’s top stylists for decades. Each year, instructors from Avenue Five Institute spend weeks training at the prestigious Sassoon Academy in Santa Monica, CA.

Clinical Esthetics Instruction

Although our esthetics program is designed to prepare professionals for all types of skincare environments, the majority of our esthetics educators have professional careers rooted in medical esthetics. Our staff tend to favor clinical, results-oriented procedures, over traditional “feel good” treatments.

Experienced Massage Professionals

The Advanced 750-hour Massage Therapy Program requires that instructional staff be experienced in a very broad spectrum of modalities, from Contemporary Massage and Bodywork to Spa Therapies and Sports Massage. Although this program is very popular among estheticians and skincare professionals, the instructors and curriculum lean more towards wellness and health benefits of massage over spa therapies.

Master Educators

Avenue Five Institute instructors receive ongoing education from Milady’s Career Institute as they pursue their Master Educator credentials. Master Educators’ purpose is to raise the bar for cosmetology education and enhance the image of the beauty industry.
