Career Services at Aveda Institute - Tallahassee: The Aveda Institute Douglas J., offers an Instructor study after graduation as an Esthetician. I look forward to completeing that class as well. My goal in continuing my education with Douglas J., is to open a business of my own. As far as job prospects, I also thought I might could partner with a dermatologist as a Clinical Esthetician. I could go on to teach. I feel like a kid in a candy store. I know as my studies continue to progress I will have a more defined outlook on what the future holds.

Campus Resources at Aveda Institute - Tallahassee: The Adveda Institute Douglas J., is a great school. Located right in the heart of downtown. The historical building gives so much character to the vision of the school. The original architechture is stunning, the student break room is comfortable, there are many eateries and coffee shops near by. The school setting is hands on, therefore, the rooms are like a "salon or spa". They offer haircuts to nails to waxing for the community to be involved by not only getting a service, the experience a Douglas J. treatment. This in turn, creates the hands on that Excellence and Experience teach.

Student Body at Aveda Institute - Tallahassee: I have only met and seen the interaction of the student body a couple of times. But, from my perspective; people work together, they encourage each other. A lot of the study is hands on, so the instruction is as well. As far as diversity, the school is just that, Diverse. People of all ages from recent highschool grad to someone like me, I graduated highschool in 1993. Not only is the atmosphere challenging, but it's fun.

Tuition & Financial Aid at Aveda Institute - Tallahassee: The Aveda Institute Douglas J., has very reasonable tuition and finacial aid process. After I was excepted and enrolled for classes to begin March 2014, I had 2 skype sessions with the Financial Aid office in Michigan. We went over every detail, line for line, I was explained my options for student aid, we put into place a payment program, and I am ready to get started.

My experience with the Financial Aid office was pleasant. Most of all, I found it to be reliable. What I mean by that, is that I spoke to the same person every time, and she specifically has my paperwork, and I will continue to deal with her throughout my education at the Aveda Institute. I find that the tuition fee will be worth every penny. I have 4 1/2 years of college prior to this enrollment; and I have to say, having this kind of one on one accountability, when it comes to student loans, I like it; and I like that I never felt shuffled around. I know my Financial Aid Administor, and I know without a doubt, that I can call her with any questions, and she will work together to help me find the answers. I am looking ahead, and excited to be where I am today.

Overall Experience at Gary Manuel Aveda Institute - Seattle: I love Aveda now way more than I even did when I first started. I guess I must have drank the tea :)

Academic Experience at Gary Manuel Aveda Institute - Seattle: The school goes out of it's way to host a career fair, and they also maintain a website for alumni who might be looking for employment. It seems as if many of the high end salon/spas in the greater Seattle area hire students directly after graduating. It is also a big plus that the Gary Manuel Aveda Salon/Studio owners hire graduating students right out of school in extended training programs, where more education is offered, but new stylists are paid an hourly wage.

Academic Experience at Gary Manuel Aveda Institute - Seattle: I toured many other area cosmetology schools, but found that GM Aveda was pretty top notch and the vibe is great. We are always packed with people since we're in a super edgy part of town with a lot of foot traffic. It is a great area to go to school and to meet new people. Many students catch the bus/ferry/other transit to school so it's great that the school is in a pedestrian friendly area, lots of crosswalks. Horrible parking, so you may not want to drive.

Academic Flexibility at Gary Manuel Aveda Institute - Seattle: It is fairly easy to know what is expected, but there has been a tiny bit of disorganization as far as grades not being input in a timely fashion. In fairness, this was due to a new system the school instituted during the summer. By all accounts, this is a nonissue at this point. The school cannot really be flexible, as it is a hours program that the state regulates... it would be nice to have more chances to make up lost hours though.

Campus Resources at Gary Manuel Aveda Institute - Seattle: The school has a fantastic aesthetic with a very modern vibe. There is always music playing on the salon floor, nothing is ever broken or in disrepair, and the classrooms all have counters and mirrors conducive to setting up our mannequins during our classroom lessons. We have great tools, a great curriculum that includes both Aveda and Milady textbooks, color charts, dvds, among a few other learning gadgets. The only thing I would change is the no refrigerator for students to store food. This forces many students to eat out, on the upside this does stimulate the economy in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. The learning leaders we have out on the floor are excellent and experienced stylists whom most of us really look up to. The instructors are personable and outgoing, the Mon-Wed Earth Phase teacher is simply phenomenal at her job, the Water phase instructor is hilarious and often stays late to see to her student's progress. Most of us are really excited to be a part of Aveda's Mission, there is a general sense of community among the students and there are no outsiders -it's a friendly group.

Campus Resources at Gary Manuel Aveda Institute - Seattle: We have fast internet, great for the people who come in for services and in case we need to look things up.

Career Services at Gary Manuel Aveda Institute - Seattle: The school has done a great job networking in the city of Seattle and surrounding areas, so there is a high demand for graduates. Local Aveda salons and studio hire from within the school, which is great for morale.

Tuition & Financial Aid at Gary Manuel Aveda Institute - Seattle: It is fairly high priced and most of us have taken out loans or had our parents take out loans for us to attend. I wish there were more opportunities for cosmetology students to earn scholarships.

Student Body at Gary Manuel Aveda Institute - Seattle: The students here are mostly really nice, but like anywhere else there are a few snotty ones, especially in the phases closest to graduating. It is as if some of them really believe they are "seniors" and the rest of us are freshman in high school, despite the fact that we are all adults. Most students come here to learn and are happy to to be here.

Academic Flexibility at Aveda Institute - Provo: As long as you work hard and are a great student it is so easy! If you are skipping school or doing poorly in academics then there are consequences. People think that hair school is a cake walk but you still have to put effort into it.
