I give it 1 star for the atmosphere, the service I am not happy about. Can't rate all students but the one I had was not upto a junior student at all. Aveda's seriously needs to teach their students more efficient than just hair. I do wish a teacher came by more often to see how the job was getting done. If they came to check, my hair would not look like this! now is black instead of light brown! the student just gave me a small sample of colors, she at first didn't even do that, she gave me a book of pictures and said, choose what color you want, really? I've been to institutes salons before and I've never had that done before! I didn't even see a timer when I was getting my hair colored! I'm not a stylist but I expect the stylist to give me options like if I'm a 7 and I wanted to go darker, to use a 6 if is not darker enough come back and use a 5! Not just putting a 4 on my hair! Now I can't fix it! I wished the teacher did that as well if the student is just not advanced enough to say it, but come on I had a junior!! I will never get my hair colored there again, so unhappy with the results! And the blow dry! Omygosh! She put so much chemicals on my hair! It was so greasy I had to wash it when I came home! Teach students how to be more efficient that trying to sell Aveda's products!! I will never recommend this institute again.
