I recently went for a balayage. I was quoted $173 for a cut and color. Although my hair is long and thick, I thought the price was steep for a student clinic, but I was already there, so I decided to go with it. After 7 hours in the chair, I came out with what looked like hair color with roots that were growing in rather than balayage. My request for two inches off the bottom and subtle layers was 0.5-1 inches, at most, with no layers. I was told that I could return within a couple of weeks to fix the color, but I'd have to pay for the additional product used for coloring. Afterwards, I told a hairstylist friend about the price, and she agreed it was way too much for a school to be charging (with the added parking meter charge + tip, it ended up totaling over $200). Everyone was nice, including the staff, but next time I'll invest $200 into a cut and color from a professional salon. From a scheduling standpoint, they were way more organized than The Aveda Institute.

This is the only place I go to for haircuts. I have never had a bad experience here; every learning artist is friendly and engaging, and their in-house mentors are quick and informative. The salon itself is kept clean and tidy.

SO GOOD! Got my nails done by April, who was so nice and did a gorgeous job! Will definitely come back for fills and sets. It did take 3 hours, but she was thorough and it was well work the wait. The other technicians were funny and fun to be around as well. 10/10!!
