I have come to trust and rely on the skill and ability of the students and instructors at Aveda. Whether it is a cut, perm, or color, the professionalism and skill utilized to render these services are top notch. There is constant communication between the student and instructor, so I never feel as if the student is uninformed or lacking confidence to execute a professional job. The instructors are very well versed and seem to truly love their job. I can bring a picture or simply explain what I am wanting and questions/recommendations are always applied to ensure what I say I want is really what I will end up receiving. I have been going to Aveda for 5 years and have no reason to believe I will change my mind.
