Bella S did a full highlight for me and it exceeded my expectations! I went from brunette to light blonde and she did a great job and did not damage my hair. If you are coming in for a transition to blonde, would definitely ask for Bella!
Wonderful experience, so many options & the absolute best products.

I would totally recommend Aveda! The students really care about the clients, and the environment is SO relaxed and full of energy. I also want to give a shout out to their instructor Whitney V, she goes above and beyond to make sure everyone is happy. I loved how kind she was to the clients, and her students as well. I really liked how she worked with them and taught them with such positivity. I received the cut I desired and really appreciated the professionalism and same day appts. Emma Kate did a great job on my hair!

Isabella C really listened to my concerns and together with the educator for the hair color, which was gray. Isabella took the time during the bleaching out the top new-grown hair (it was natural black) and toning process to make sure the gray color was achieved. Afterwards, she stayed late to achieve the perfect blow dry and curled my hair. I told her that I had an important event. She was friendly, patient, and enjoys. All of that, she made the first experience for me that much more enjoyable and great decision on using service at beauty school. Believe that their students will be succeed and great cosmology out there 🙂
