Academic Experience at Aveda Institute - Columbus: Being in cosmetology is a great way to be unique and express yourself through others and make people feel good about themselves and keep their hair skin and nails healthy.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience at Aveda Institute - Columbus: Aveda is a great school everyone from the teachers to the office workers do everything in their power to make sure you succeed. They have their hands in helping a lot of organizations and children around the world. Aveda is all about positivity and saving the world from distraction and animals. I couldn't have chosen a better school to attend and learn all there is to learn at Aveda. My favorite experiences I have had at Aveda would have to be hair cuts and color. Color is one of my favorites because it was so challenging and I love a challenge. Learning all the colors and formulas was a great experience I have never done before. It was very challenging but the teachers drilled it in our heads and didn't move on until we understood it. Cutting was fairly challenging just learning the posture parts of it and how it has an effect on the cut. Like I said I could not have chosen a better learning experience anywhere else.

Academic Experience at Aveda Institute - Covington: In the Aveda pamphlet, this school was founded to create some of the most successful entrepreneurs in hair skin and nail esthetics. Aveda emphasizes personal well-being, as well as environmental responsibility.

5 College Junior

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility at Aveda Institute - Portland: The only negative is that they charge you to change your schedule which I think is ridiculous.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience at Aveda Institute - Portland: There isn't consistency in the quality of classes and instructors. For example, our instructor for the chemical phase was awful. There was next to no hands on, she did not care about us as students in the slightest, and she viewed class time as her time to talk about her personal life. It was ridiculous. When our class tells another instructor or student who our teacher was for that phase, the response is a knowing and sympathetic "Oooooooh".

On the flip side, the instructor we had for styling took time with each student individually to make sure they were on the same page as everyone else. It was obvious she loved what she was doing, and loved teaching. She was professional and friendly and caring.

There were also a couple phases that I feel like wasted an immense amount of time. The business phase in particular could have been done entirely at home in less than half the time. There wasn't any really teaching happening. It was just DVDs. That time could have been better spent getting more hands on experience.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience at Aveda Institute - Portland: I really, really wish we got more makeup instruction. It is listed in the curriculum, but it's kind of a joke the amount of 'instructions' offered in this specific area. I also wish we could choose to specialize in a certain area of study. For example, if your passion is styling, you could get further instruction specific to styling.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience at Aveda Institute - Portland: I wish the care and professionalism of the instructors was consistent. They can be extremely helpful, and you can definitely learn a lot, but you have to really push to get that knowledge and I feel like you shouldn't have to work so hard to be taught. Maybe it's because this school is drowning in estrogen or maybe they are over worked, but the instructors can be catty and mean one second and the next they are trying to be your best friend. I just don't think it's too much to ask for the instructors to act like professional adults on a consistent basis.

That being said, I have had a lot of fun in cosmetology school. I have learned so much about the industry as well as about myself. I do love the set up of building upon what you learn as each phase goes on, and we do get a lot of hands on experience. I wish there was more structure though.
