Aveda Institute Orlando Beauty School Student Spotlight for July
These beauty school students attend the Aveda Institute in Orlando, Florida. They have excelled in their classes to be recognized as July’s Students of the Month.
A Side Cosmetology Student – Brooke Heldreth
What I do as a student to stand out is just be present and be punctual. I come ready every day, and try to help anyone who may not be ready. I chose Aveda because I wanted the best education possible and I believe that I get that from Aveda. I went to Hagerty High School in Oviedo, FL.
I am a member of the Artistic Team and have participated in multiple school events and fashion shows. Outside of school I am involved in horseback riding. I’m really just an animal lover, considering my family and I have 11 animals! My work portfolio is looks_bybrooke on Instagram!
B Side Cosmetology Student – Alexis McKim
I never intentionally try and stand out, but I always look for ways to help my fellow classmates and the staff. If someone is running late on a service I’ll sweep for them and wash their color bowls, if they need products I’ll grab them. I just try and do things for others I’d want done for me.
I am hair obsessed so I don’t really have any hobbies besides stalking my favorite hairstylists Instagram pages. I graduated from Winter Park High School. I’m not on the artistic team but I have helped on multiple artistic team events. I chose Aveda because our mission really resonated with me. I care so deeply about the world we live in and I strive daily to make it a better place.

Esthiology – Cheri Cummings
I strive every day to make sure I am contributing. I have had classmates who don’t have money for lunch and I have paid for them to eat. I make a conscious effort to always ask anyone if they need help. I love to say good morning and compliment people at random. It feels great for me when I see other people happy and succeeding.
I chose Aveda because wellness is a priority for Aveda as much as it is for my life. For me, the goal is oneness with mind body and soul. I believe that in my life, in my marriage, and in my education.
I attended Edgewater High School here in Orlando. When I enrolled at Aveda I made the Artistic Team. I have participated in many incredible events with the team like Florida Hospital Prom, Runway to Hope, Seussical, and Mulan Jr. with Central Florida Community Arts. Throughout my life I have volunteered with YMCA and the Boys and Girls club. I have specifically mentored youth girls.
