Alisha Kemp Named 2021 Student Hairstylist of the Year

Each year, our Aveda Institutes select one deserving student to participate in a photoshoot with award-winning photographer Keith Bryce that is entered into the North American Hairstyling Awards for Student Hairstylist of the Year. In 2020 one of our Aveda Institute Columbus students, Dottie Greene, was named Student Hairstylist of the Year.

We were incredbly proud when Aveda Institute Los Angeles student Alisha Kemp was named a finalist for the 2021 honors, and are thrilled to announce that she has been awarded the 2021 Student Hairstylist of the Year award!

Congratulations Alisha! We can't wait to see all of the amazing things you will achieve in your career!
