This was my first trip to Aveda Fredric's Institute. I was pleasantly surprised with how nice and very professional the whole experience was. My student was just adorable and very, very talented. Even though she was close to graduating, an instructor was checking things every step of the way. This gave me extra confidence in my judgement that this young lady really did know what she was doing. Thank you for a wonderful experience. I will definitely be back!

I have been going here for years and usually have good services, but this visit was AWFUL and I left in tears. Aside from starting 15 minutes late because they were unable to locate my student, the accent I had done was ALL wrong. It was more of a full or partial on top. I requested a few subtle highlights put in and left looking streaked and summer blonde. Also, the application was poor. I have visible "chunks" and the side pieces are not blended at all. Spoke with instructor who said they could put toner on it or add some lowlights and then basically tried to "talk me out of it." I had been there for 3.5 hours for 6-7 foils on top and 2-3 on the sides. This is typically how long it takes when I get a full or partial color done. By this time, I was too upset and did not have the time to stay another hour or so. Didn't feel like they really wanted to fix it.

I have always had an absolutely, positive experience at the Institute. The health of my hair has greatly improved as a result of being introduced to the Aveda line. The customer service is outstanding. The environment is a holistically, relaxing experience.

Loved my recent visit to Aveda. My student hair stylist Kelly was exceptionally good - most likely because she has been cutting hair for past 15 years for her family and friends. After washing my hair the next day, my hair style was exactly the way I like it. There were no surprises. This is not usually the case. Often I find some issues the next day after washing my hair. I knew that I had a great hair cut this time when I was able to keep my simple routine (wash, style and air dry) while still looking very stylish.

This salon far exceeded my expectations and I have been recommending it to friends, co workers and family. I also have another appointment myself in two weeks. I do recommend allowing extra time to indulge in the complimentary services offered! Great job Aveda and students!

This was my first time to the Aveda Institute but not my first time to a salon school. I used to live in Columbia SC and would get my hair done at The Paul Mitchel School and Salon. I understood that they are students and it takes a little longer. I am a teacher and I am all about people learning so I don't mind it taking longer. I would recommend the Aveda Institute to my friends and family. In fact I already have!

I loooveeeeee my hair!!!!! Please go see Allyssa Sturgill! She is amazing and very detail oriented! If you have always been skeptical of beauty schools don't even worry. This was the best hair experience a girl could have the prices are beyond reasonable! I will never go anyplace else! Thanks again!!!

I have been a stylist for 20+ years. This past weekend I treated my daughter to a day at the Aveda school. We were greeted immediately with smiles. My daughter was going with two different colors of low lights and I received highlights and low lights.(which is a task for anyone). I could tell from the beginning that my student was nervous and this was probably her first highlight. I assured her there is always another bottle to correct something gone wrong. ha!! My student did an amazing job and even though we were there for 6 hours...it didn't feel that long. We had a great experience, but you must go in knowing this is a school and the students are learning...it takes time. Patience is the key!!!! Thanks so much for a great job!!! Bravo!
