I have been going to Aveda for years and have had some wonderful experiences in the past. On these occasions I was lucky enough to get a student who was talented and passionate about their profession. I have also had several less than great experiences with students who were not so talented, but at least they put in an effort and were friendly. My last haircut at Aveda was with a student named Sarah. Not only was she incredibly rude, she did not listen or ask questions. I should have walked out instead of letting her cut my hair, but since I was just in for a trim, I did not think she could mess it up too much. Not only did cut off over 3 inches of hair after I told her I was trying to grow it back, she was very rough, and unpleasant. I did not enjoy any moment of the experience and could not wait to get out of there. When I mentioned that she had cut off a lot of hair she became even more hostile. I am not trying to turn anyone away from Aveda, per se, I have had good experiences there. However, should you go in and be greeted by a rude young woman named Sarah, I would strongly urge you to walk out and request another appointment, hopefully on a day she is not there. The experience was so negative I am not sure I will ever want to go back to the Aveda in Las Vegas.
