From Our Editors
Located on San Jose Boulevard on Jacksonville’s Southside, Aveda Institute is a well-oiled hub of cosmetology where in-training hair stylists and cosmetologists complete weeks of hands-on schooling to become certified Aveda technicians. From the impressively large lobby complete with makeup and skincare samples to the separate hair and nail salon areas, Aveda Institute is a one-stop shop for beauty needs. The school also offers reduced fare services where students (overseen by supervisors) perform everything from haircuts and highlights to shampoos, color services, blow outs and several styles of pedicures. Staff members are friendly and accommodating, in preparation for working in Aveda salons upon graduation, and satisfaction with your beauty needs is their highest priority. The institute is clean and offers the same trend-setting services available at other high end salons for a fraction of the price.
