A wonderful historical venue that is worth the trip. Horst Rechelbacher, founder of Aveda and the Institute and now owned by Estee Lauder, is known for creating up-scale organic and lush smelling hair and skin care products. You can book an appointment at the Institute with a cosmetology student for everything from hair services to skin care to massages and... More

So my friend decided to try this place and explained to me it would probably be a good idea if I did also. I am still looking for a decent haircut/stylist since I've relocated to this area from Los Angeles. So my friend said it would be a great place and we would have a "master student" cut each of...

I have been going to a student for haircuts and am very pleased with the results so far. Reasonable haircuts can be had at a reasonable price, and they're done by students learning their craft.

A friend of mine came to visit and we decided to find a place where we could both have facials at the same time. Although this is a teaching institute, the service was very very good. Unlike regular salons, there are large rooms that have curtains that separate each space so the students talk very low as otherwise you could... More

I've never been to this kind of place before, I was impressed. It's a big place with many options. From hair cuts to pedicures. All done by students. We were there for an early mother's day celebration. My three sisters and I and our mother all had pedicures. All the girls were wonderful. Pretty professional for young ladies. You do... More

You get your moneys worth at Aveda. The scalp massage with the hair cuts makes you feel special. And the massages are heavenly.

I take my mother in law to the Aveda Institute as an annual ritual when we're in town for a visit; she likes it better than any gift and it sets us straight for our holiday weekend. There are occasional package deals, we've only done the spa. Very relaxing, and at half the price for a retail spa, with all... More

I have been to the Aveda Institute a number of times for haircuts, and always have had great results (especially for $16!!). This time, we did a girls' weekend, and three of us got the "Rejuvenation Package"; one got the "Serenity Spa Package". Excellent service, excellent packages - we were very, very happy with those results. We also each had... More
