4 College Junior

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.

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.

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.

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.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility at Gary Manuel Aveda Institute - Seattle: It is difficult to find people who will volunteer to model who actually show-up. But this is good experience in the real world dealing with clients

5 College Senior

Academic Experience at Gary Manuel Aveda Institute - Seattle: We are required to completed a large amount of homework & the instructors create an atmosphere as though we are already in the real world of cosmetology--this is teaching me to arrange my time & coordinate what is required of me. We are given the opportunity to meet top ranking professional sin the field & show our work to the public.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience at Gary Manuel Aveda Institute - Seattle: In the past, I have attended another cosmetology school & they did not offer the vast amount of knowledge or floor time that Aveda expects. I also interviewed other schools prior to choosing Aveda & they did not feel they could offer me the advancement I was requiring.

Aveda has a professional atmosphere. They have been instrumental in building my enthusiasm & creating advanced skills within me that I was not aware I had. I strongly recommend this school for those who desire the full experience of cosmetology.

Overall Experience at Gary Manuel Aveda Institute - Seattle: Once you get the hang of the procedure and the structure of the school you will love it! How the environment is will make you feel so good. Once you think of one negative thought everything will turn into bad thoughts! Wake up in the morning and tell yourself you will change one person's day, at least one! Make sure to think of how you feel at the end of the day! Trust me, I am a negative person overall and I hate a lot of things..well did. This school changed me technically and physically and emotionally!

Overall Experience at Aveda Institute - Tallahassee: Aveda truly is an amazing school. I go to the Jacksonville location instead of the Tallahassee location but it wasn't listed. Aveda is a wonderful school. Everyone is nice and caring, it feels like one big family and the educators are some of the best I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Our school is very unique because of our products that actually work, and the way we give back to the earth. Our mission is based on love, health, and beauty.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility at Aveda Institute - Albuquerque: I had to drive in from los lunas every week it wasnt to bad, but missed out on family time on the weekends.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience at Aveda Institute - Albuquerque: I love Aveda and what it stands for I wish I knew the financial strain it was going to put me through before I started I came here because I thought it was the best in education and as well as almost promising a Carrere after school I wish I would've known to review all my signed papers and agreements I feel like Aveda definitely has a higher standard which is what I wanted I think I would go with Aveda again just because they do offer more opportunities than other schools but its also a disadvantage because they only teach you Aveda and no other products.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience at Aveda Institute - Albuquerque: you either love or hate your instructor some get a power trip and decide to try and treat students like children, the good news you don't stay with the same teacher the whole time also teachers gossip all about students some teachers are good and some you could live without

4 College Senior

Overall Experience at Aveda Institute - Albuquerque: the degree from Aveda is great but they need to change some things about it such as financial aid and job searches, the recruiters I never found any I had to go and search for the school myself
