I've been going to Brown Aveda Institute for a very long time now and for the most part I leave satisfied . I get perms and a haircut when I go and have only once been disappointed with both . The only complaint I have is the time spent , I have to plan on losing a whole day as I get in there at 9:00 -9:30am and get out around 4:00 pm sometimes later . There is to much time sitting and waiting for teachers and instructors to do checks . Maybe more staff would help move things along faster .
When I request an advanced student I rarely get one , which makes me nervous since I am getting a perm . I got a perm once and had two students wrapping my hair at the same time , this was a huge mistake because the end result was an uneven wrap which I really noticed 72 hours later when I was able to wash and style my hair . One whole side was loser than the other side.
Over all , I understand it is a learning place and I take my chances . Just wish when I ask for an advanced student to give me a perm , I get an advanced student ,preferably one that has at least past the perm test part of their training , that would be awesome !
I always recommend Brown Aveda in Rocky River to friends and family but I do tell them "don't make plans for the day because depending on what your having done it could take hours"
