The Aveda Institute is great place to get a very inexpensive facial, massage, or hair service. Sometimes, the hair services take a little longer, but it is half the price of going to a salon making it very worth it!

I have been going to a student for haircuts and am very pleased with the results so far. Reasonable haircuts can be had at a reasonable price, and they're done by students learning their craft.

A friend of mine came to visit and we decided to find a place where we could both have facials at the same time. Although this is a teaching institute, the service was very very good. Unlike regular salons, there are large rooms that have...More
