I needed a trim for a layered cut that had grown out and since it was a originally a Disconnected technique of cutting that was used...I was sure the student I was confused when he first saw it. He was a nervous guy...I think more so socially awkward than with the scissors. He cut slowly and carefully and seemed unsure.
He offered me a conditioning treatment, gave me a short shoulder massage and touched up my lips with gloss. This was all mandatory in what he had to accomplish in the hours of classes that was required for the course.
My hair came out shiny, neatly trimmed along the shape of all those layers. I was quite impressed that he was able to follow the original shape and cleaned up the out grown look so nicely.
I also suggest getting a color here since Aveda colors are more vibrant that what I have experienced from other companies. They also focus on natural solutions and although not entirely organic...they come close enough.
Although, the academy is located down in the butt of Chelsea near the Holland tunnel, I think it is worth the trip.
The trainees are enthusiastic about their new career, they will take their time with you and they are indeed well trained.
I totally recommend a visit here!
