Thanks for the facial, Christin! I am really enjoying the new products! I have never been disappointed in my Aveda Institute appointments. Thanks for your good work! char

This review is for the last time I visited the institute. I've been getting perms at AVEDA for the past 9 years or so (about once a year), and they have been great. The staff is professional and students are nice. It is usually an enjoyable experience and my hair always turns out fine. Sadly, my last experience was less than ideal. First off, the educator did not tell the student to neutralize my hair beforehand (since it's already been permed multiple times, I knew this should happen). I reminded the student, who confirmed with the educator that they indeed had to neutralize my hair before perming it again. Second, about 50-70% of my hair burnt off at the roots. There are patches of my head where all the hair is about 5mm long, like someone took a razor blade to it (I'll attach a picture below). My hair is strong and healthy and I've never had this problem in the past 9 years. Not sure what happened this time, but regardless, a lot of my hair is gone. I feel there should that the educators should have been more involved throughout the process. The student that the did the perm was very nice and I did enjoy the time I spent there during the perm, but at the end of the day there was so much damage. I will have to wait years (my hair is about 12-14 inches long) for my hair to be back to normal.

I had never been to Aveda before, but I decided to give it a try because I wanted to get about 10 inches of hair cut off and the only other cheap salon near the U is GreatClips. I had the most wonderful experience there! Maddie (E?) cut my hair, and she did an amazing job! Plus, I LOVE my new hair - she matched my example photos perfectly. I was really nervous about the major change, but she was very encouraging and friendly, which helped a lot. It did take a while (about two hours for a wash and cut) but as a student, I only had to pay $13! For that rate, it was well worth it! I am so glad I went here, and will definitely be back!
