From the very beginning of checking in, through the last scent of the Aveda fragrance it was an over the top experience. Annelicia delivers a wonderful facial with her kind spirit and vast knowledge. She describes the technique and products so their easy to understand and has a relaxing touch. The educator was in touch a couple times and it impressed me to hear the affirmations. This is my second facial and I recommend coming here to anyone readying this! A+

First time getting my eyebrows waxed here at Aveda! I was so incredibly impressed with Jessica. She went above and beyond to hear out my concerns with how I wanted my eyebrows shaped, styled, etc. I’m very picky and conscious about how my eyebrows look, and again… Jessica did everything flawlessly. The atmosphere was BEYOND my expectations, I was about ready to take a nap with how comfortable I felt. Jessica took her time and did such a fantastic job, that’s all I will be talking about for the rest of the day. Fantastic job.
