I had a pedicure at Brown Aveda Institute in Rocky River and most likely will not have another one there. The student who did my pedicure, Alyssa, was very nice, but seemed nervous to the point where I had to encourage her to do things just to keep the pedicure moving. At times, I felt like I was teaching her.
I also wasn't thrilled that the pedicure took almost 90 minutes. I understand that it's a school, but new clients should be warned when making their appointments that services are going to take a while. My butt actually started to hurt from sitting in the chair so long!
Lastly, I don't think I got a very good pedicure for $27 when, for $5 more, I could go to a professional and be in and out in 45 minutes. I would suggest that Brown Aveda cut their prices in half because clients are donating a lot of time to helping their students.
I don't recommend Brown Aveda for pedicures unless you have a lot of time and don't mind a below average pedicure.
