I had a wonderful experience seeing Kat! I have been dying my hair with black box dye for years and I was super scared to go any lighter expecting orange or fried hair, Kat did an amazing job with my hair! It was so long and frizzy before, she did a remarkable job with my hair! Will definitely be having her do my hair from now on! And it wasn’t too expensive either! I definitely got more than my moneys worth!!!

Lydia did an amazing job! She listened to what I wanted during the consultation, gave me the best shampoo I’ve ever had, cut my hair with precision and attention to detail, and then made me look amazing with a top tier blowout. And the whole time we chatted about life and had a natural rapport. It was the whole salon experience at a bargain price. I really loved that there were instructors on the floor to double check each step. It made me feel super confident about the whole experience.

What They Say About Us

"My favorite part about the AVEDA Institute is the level of growth I have experienced. This process began from day one with the specialized, individual attention I received from my educators. This attention has continued and I feel very comfortable being able to express myself in ways I didn't think possible. Now I'm very outgoing and have the confidence to perform all techniques I've learned. So far this career is a really great journey and I enjoy being challenged at the AVEDA Institute, which has truly encouraged me to be the best "me" I can be."

Editor's Description

A student reviewer on Indeed says, "I loved everything about this school. I learned so much in such a short amount of time.
