This was my first experience at Aveda Fredric's. My daughter recommended that I try the Institute. I must say that the visit was such a pleasure. From the staff at the counter, to the educators, everyone extended a graceful smile and took an interest in my needs. Bre, my stylist professional, was such a joy to work with. She was kind, listened to me, understood what my goals were with my hair color and style. She was detailed, professional and gentle. I have to say that this being my first visit to a salon in a very long time, not to mention, working with students of the art, was the most enjoyable. It is so nice to see the students engaged with their clients. Even more so is knowing that their experience at the Institute will bring terrific professionals to the hair and cosmetology industry. Thank you Bre. I have had numerous compliments since my visit.
