I've been going to the Brown Aveda Institute for a couple of years now. The service is unmatched for the price. However what you don't spend in money expect to spend in time. My typical experience there takes over two hours to get a basic hair cut. My last experience ther however took much longer. My appointment was at 10am for my usual basic hair cut. They didn't bring me back until 10:30 even though the front desk had told me they had atleast 10 cancellations that morning due to weather.
I finally get back there and I discover that I am the first client my student has ever seen. She is understandably nervous to cut my hair. But with a lot of help from the instructors and her fellow classmates she ends up doing a great job! The only downside is that I didn't leave until 2:30. That's right it took four and a half hours to do a basic hair cut. I was starving by the end! I don't blame my student. She just wanted to do it right. I blame the instructors who should have stepped in and realized that I had been there way way too long.
I recommend going here if you aren't in a hurry, the price for the services provided is unbeatable!
