What You'll Get
The earliest salons were informal gatherings where B-list philosophers gibbered away so they couldn't hear themselves dying of plague. Get an earful of the modern salon’s soothing hair-dryer purrs and scissor chop-chops instead with today's deal: for $17, you get $35 worth of hair-care, skin-care, hair-removal, and hand- and foot-care services from a supervised beauty student at Aveda Institute Columbus. This Groupon can be used at your choice of the institute's two Columbus locations: the hair, face, and body beauty hub on Neil Avenue or the hair and nail salon on North High Street.
The Aveda Institutes in Columbus are full-service beauty schools devoted to fostering individuality through personal client consultations, distinctive looks to flatter every style, and encouragement of student-stylists' artistic visions. Peruse the tempting list of services to find a treatment for your favorite body part. Equalize your epidermis with a customized Elemental Nature facial ($45). Hair- and scalp-renewal treatments pamper your follicles' faces ($40), saturating each strand with an expert blend of moisturizers to nourish the noggin and butter every head noodle. Wild tresses can be domesticated with a haircut and simple style (starting at $19) or partial relaxer (starting at $35), and unwanted whiskers can be whacked with a waxing treatment ($13–$40). Flippers and clappers will emphatically perform their respective tricks for your new look if you reward them with a spa pedicure ($25) and manicure ($15). With a host of pampertunities, Aveda Institute will have your features fighting for your affection.

About Aveda Institute Columbus
The ample hands-on experience that Aveda Institute's students receive in cosmetology, hair styling, and skincare is only one part of their extensive training. Even as these burgeoning professionals master more advanced techniques, their instructors work to impart a sense of social and environmental responsibility. These are the tenets of founder and environmentalist Horst M. Rechelbacher, whose vision of living in sync with nature led to Aveda's botanically based products for hair and skin.
At the institute, students cull knowledge from industry experts through extensive practical training under the supervision of mentors. Stylists learn how to cut hair and soothe stress with complimentary mini facials, makeup touchups, and horn sharpening. Future aestheticians restore balance to faces and bodies with relaxing skincare treatments.
To connect with both the local and global community, students also apply their efforts toward charity events such as Earth Month. This campaign helps raise funds for the Sierra Club, who in turn uses the donations to help protect sources of clean water worldwide. The Institute is also hosting an upcoming fashion benefit show on April 23, with procedes going to the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Columbus.
