A heritage building in the Exchange District has been beautified in a major way with the new Aveda Institute Winnipeg. Beauty students and green beauty disciples can now meet under one roof at this 9,000 square-foot hair school, complete with a retail store selling plant-derived, animal friendly, biodegradable beauty products. Hair services, including washes, cuts, dyes and do’s are available by student beauticians, graduates and teachers. Since 1978 the environment has been a top priority for Aveda, who has pioneered in the world of green cosmetics by using mostly certified organic raw herbal ingredients and renewable plant-based ingredients. And it doesn’t stop there. With recycling programs, 100 per cent post-consumer packaging and fair compensation for suppliers, Aveda is an ecological role model. Overhaul your beauty regime with a plant-based pamper at Aveda and be a natural beauty. 80 Rorie St, 1-877-902-8332.
