I am thinking about going to the Aveda Institute for Cosmetology.

I realize most people won't know anything about this, but I was hoping that atleast someone can give me some insight!

Does anyone if this is a good school, or atleast is the job market in Charlotte good for hair dressers?

I worked for a Salon in Calif. that sold Aveda,,,some of us were not happy with it. Do your research and walk into local Salons and ask how they feel about hiring from Aveda. Do they still indorce aroma therapy? What specialty in cosmetoligy do you really want to persue?

Default Aveda Institute Charlotte

I'll give you my honest opinion, pros and cons:

Pros:
-Most of the instructors are gifted and do care.
-Aveda is a great name and can you land you a job in a top salon.
-Most of Aveda's products are great to work with.
-You get your own work station.
-The building and technology is modern and sleek.
-You wear all black as opposed to scrubs which most cosmetology schools require.
-The techniques learned are advanced, modern and up-to-date.
-Once you start practicing on the public you may accept tips.

Cons:
-A couple of the instructors do have favorites and can be quite cold and impersonal.
-You can not miss more than 10 days for the year, however, in the event of an emergency or personal issue you can take a leave.
-Tardiness is not tolerated, even by one minute, no exceptions.
-Housekeeping duties are assigned (washing and folding towels, sweeping, taking the garbage out to the dumpster, cleaning the bathroom (not the toilets), cleaning mirrors, wiping down countertops.

If you follow lead well, are more impressionable and less independent you will do fine. If you work it will be difficult for you and you will be tired.

I have been for services and it's a nice place. I know a couple of people who have went and graduated and have had no problem getting work in high end salons.

its worth it. There will always be caddyness, especially in this industry and yes intructors pick favorites but there not suppose to be your friend, there to teach you and when you get a difficult person to work with, it makes you better than ever. I went to the Aveda out in new york city, and it taught me so much. And theres actually a whole other color line I wont get to use until I land a job with an aveda salon. Definitely go!!

I've heard that there is no reason to go to Aveda (since it is probably pricey) when you learn the same exact things at the Cosmetology program at Rowan Cabarrus Community College.. it's your choice though.

I am also thinking of attending Aveda Institute for the skin care. I was curious about how well their school was.
