I have been going to the Aveda teaching institute for years and it has been hit or miss. Sometimes it's wonderful. Other times, not so great. This past time was awful. Not only did I have to ask for the chair massage and then the facial, but she refused to do makeup touch up until after the hair cut. She stated that this was "just her preference." As for the cut, I simply wanted 1/2 an inch off of a one length hair cut. Not hard. She proceeded to give me layers and very short ones at that. When I tried to stop her and ask her what she was doing, she simply stated that if she messed up, the instructor can fix it. When the instructor came over, she kept apologizing profusely. But it didn't help my hair! I now look like a mushroom top! I know hair grows out but the complete lack of professionalism by the student will probably prevent me from ever going back again.

I just came back from Aveda. My appointment was at 10 a.m. this morning. I arrived on time, and yet, I didn't get done with my appointment until 5:30 pm!!! My hairstylist was decent and my color came out nice, but I would never go back again. This took my entire day, and I wasn't warned that it would take so long. Yes it was a great deal, but my time is worth more.

A friend and I went to the Fredric's Institute for manicure on my birthday. The student manicurist seemed uninterested in me or my nails, chatting with other students and even making my finger BLEED. Her painting was sloppy and no better than any time I've painted my own nails. Her instructor had to take over and finish my manicure. Both the cost and the service were cheap and unsatisfactory.

Today was my first visit to the salon. The service was excellent.
The staff and students very friendly and listened to my request.
I received the best color and cut I have had in years. And believe me,
I have paid plenty in other salons for the same service. I would
recommend Aveda to anyone who values quality at a bargain price.

Yes this place is extremely affordable- 10 for a hair cut that includes a facial massage but every time I go- it takes me at least 2 hours from the facial to the hair cut- with the haircut taking over 2 hours. I have very short hair and it seems always to take forever as the teachers usually end up cutting my hair. Yes it is a good deal but if your time is worth more, you can find a better deal for a cheap haircut. And you have to book way ahead of time and if you need to cancel, forget about getting another appointment.

PROS: Affordable- like the facial massage
CONS: Too time consuming, not flexible

I just love pedicures that you get at Aveda in general. Their products are simply wonderful and they smell so awesome. The cool thing in particular about this place is that you get service from students, which is great because not only this translates into a very reasonable price, but they are also more laid back and chatty. The only disadvantage is that they are not open to public during school hours.

PROS: Service
CONS: Limited schedule

This place is grrrrreat. The trainees are quite competant hairstylists, and with the trainer hovering, no cut is made or color applied without heavy consideration. The prices are phenomenal, especially considering the quality of product used (all aveda products). There are plenty of perks, too, like a mini massage or mini facial given with each haircut.

PROS: Unbelievable prices, fabulous product, full service salon
CONS: Takes a loooong time to get an appoinment, schedule way ahead!

I have been to this place many times now and although it depends on who you get, the pedicures are out of this world for an awesome price. The services are rendered by graduating students, so pay pretty much half. And the products and methodology are same as any reputable salon. The only drawback is having to schedule the appointment far in advance - they go really really fast.

PROS: Good price
CONS: Hard to get appointment

I have been to the Aveda Fredrics Institute many times. The people there are very kind, service was great. Prices can't be beat, they serve you hot tea and give you mini facials with any hair service. And they do an excellent job. The atmosphere is very comfortable...albeit a little noisy and busy. Worth it though, for what you get.

PROS: royal treatment at bargain prices
CONS: very, very busy. makes it hard to get an appointment
