Imagine yourself in a misty jungle, the trees shrouded in warm clouds. It smells like flowers, you’re more relaxed than you’ve ever been before. You look hot, having gotten a fresh blowout and haircut. This, my friends, is what it is like to get styled at the Aveda Institute. You may have heard from your friends that Aveda is a great place to get a cheap chop on a student’s budget, but have you heard about the spa-like services that the salon offers as part of its classic Aveda hospitality? The business is a training salon for the Douglas J school, but you would never know it ― the class and professionalism of the student hairstylists is fantastic, so you know you’re in good hands. Plus, there are always professional stylists milling around, just in case you want a second opinion about those post-breakup bangs. The salon’s relaxing and customer-oriented environment is the perfect spot to get a quick trim or lose a foot of your locks, whatever tickles your fancy enough to come in. If there was ever a place to change up your ‘do, whether on the heels of a big life change or not, it’s the Aveda Institute.
