Brad Van Dyke

Salon Owner/Purefessional

Brad Van Dyke holds a license in massage and esthetics. I believe wellness is a fusion of many beautiful healing modalities and Aveda is a key component in personal and global wellness. 

 

Embodying Aveda belief number 7, Brad encourages everyone to continue learning. The journey of constant education came full circle when he joined the Aveda Institute Denver/ Inspire Greatness team in 2005. During this time at the Institute has given me the opportunity to become an Aveda Spa Purefessional in 2007 and Purchase Three Cutters in 2011. 

 

Beyond Aveda curriculum, Brad is also a Franklin Covey Trainer. I educate on classes that range from 7Habits of Highly Effective People, to Speed of Trust. Presentation Advantage and Principles of Education are my favorite courses; this lesson is educating others how to effectively present material to an audience.

 

Justin Williams

Justin started his beauty industry career at the Aveda Experience Center in Cherry Creek 12 years ago.  While still working at Aveda he decided to obtain his esthetics license to take his Aveda training a step further.  In 2002 he received his license and began at Three Cutters on Pearl.  In his ninth year at Three Cutters he walks through the door as happy and inspired as his first day.

Scott Clark
Stylist/Educator/Purefessional

Scott started his career in 2003 after graduating from the Toni and Guy Academy in Colorado Springs, CO. After graduation he worked for Toni and Guy as a Technical hair color specialist and as a L’oreal color educator.

Striving for more education he left his first salon to work at an Aveda salon where he developed a passion for Aveda, their education and mission.  Moving to Denver three years ago opened doors to develop his passion for this industry even more.  Currently he works not only at Three Cutters as a Hair Stylist but also shares his knowledge with Future Professionals at the Aveda Institute of Denver.  Scott then became an Aveda hair color Purefessional so he could share his knowledge with the entire Aveda network.

Being able to educate his guests as well as deliver great customer service is his passion and goal.  Combining honest and informed decisions for his guests helps deliver an experience that will leave them wanting to come back.

Nicole Higgins
Stylist
 



Nicole Higgins, a California native came to Denver fresh out of the Fashion Industry to find something more. She knew she loved the industry, but still felt like she hadn’t found her niche. She enrolled at the Aveda Institute Denver falling in love with all the various dynamics the Cosmetology side had to offer in the industry. Starting early in her career doing editorials along with being nominated as a student for the North American Hairstyling Awards, Nicole was hooked. She is continually advancing her education in various cutting and coloring techniques. She is active in North American Hairstyling Award photo shoots, along with other various editorials in Rocky Mountain Bridal, and other local publications. Her heart is in the industry through and through. She likes to share that passion daily throughout the week by educating and giving back at the local Aveda Institute in Denver

Front Desk



I have had the privilege of working for Aveda for over 4 years.  I've always been inspired by our mission statement around being environmental leaders and giving back to the community.   "Beauty is as beauty does" has always had a deeper meaning to me and is one of my very favorite Aveda quotes that I try to adhear too.  Connecting with guests and providing a friendly atmosphere comes easy to me and I always enjoy meeting new people who are just as excited about Aveda as I am!  When I'm not at the salon or the retail store I enjoy staying active, painting and cooking.
