    The Time Travel of Beautiful Skin

    The Aveda Salon Experience

    As a new student at the Aveda Institute Tallahassee, the salon experience is very new to me. I’m used to the typical experience in other salons.

    Experience Aveda’s 12 Points of Difference

    We’ve all had that experience at a salon where we feel like just a number in their computer or another name on the books. We’ve all had that experience where your stylist treats you as an object for their income and not a canvas for their creativity. At Aveda, you will not have that. You […]
