The Atelier Protégé is an essential facet of Atelier.
The word, Protégé, means, “one under the care and protection of another.” We take that to heart, by caring about the education of our new generation, and strengthening the culture that keeps us strong and deeply passionate about our craft. In other words, we like to grow our own. Atelier is improving the beauty industry, one hair artist at a time, through the Atelier® Protégé program.
This comprehensive, 24-month program develops incredible technical skills, strong customer service vision, and excellent product recommendation abilities. Atelier Protégés are fully licensed cosmetologists who assist the Atelier artists during the week and receive a mix of hands-on and theory time taught by Atelier coaches, the salon owner, and Aveda certification classes. Appointments are taken during class time and include a thorough consultation, an expert service, a finished style and complimentary makeup touchup, all at no cost to the guest. At the end of the program, a new Atelier star is born!
Classes are held on Mondays from 9 am to 2 pm.

Atelier Salons believe that a career requires a solid foundation to build on. We take
this seriously, so we thoughtfully created an employment experience that is structured,
organized, guided, and supported. We explore career paths with every employee to be
sure we are always playing to our team’s strengths. For our hair artists, this means
giving them the training and education they need to be the best. Atelier’s Prote’ge’
Program, over the past 13 years, has provided post-cosmetology college training that
has resulted in solid careers in the beauty industry, and a coveted chair at Atelier
Salons. As we grow our team, our salon grows stronger in talent and
reputation. Our team is a shining example of the success of our Prote’ge’ program,
with some artists celebrating more than 10 years with us. If you’d like to explore a
