Busy Modern Salon
Beauty and massage careers aren’t mastered in the classroom. To get the confidence and professional-level skills it takes to succeed, you need real-world experience working with clients. Our facilities have been specifically designed as a teaching salon/spa.
Avenue Five Institute is extremely thankful to the thousands of loyal Student Salon & Spa guests that continue to support, what are likely to become, some of Austin’s most influential future beauty professionals and healing massage therapists.

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.
