The Douglas J Aveda Institute is a beauty school in which students— under the watchful eye of knowledgeable instructors—pamper and soothe exteriors and extremities during salon services. Revitalize tired mugs with a 60-minute elemental nature facial ($37), a customizable toning treatment complete with exfoliation, massage, and spirit-animal reading, or have features accented with defining brushstrokes and complementary shades during a makeup application or lesson ($22–$25). A Malibu hair treatment, shampoo, and blow-dry ($25+) detoxifies tresses and removes buildup from strands, and a haircut and style ($28) renovate dated manes. Elemental nature manicures ($24) and pedicures ($35) scrub and moisturize extremities before decorating talons with fresh paint jobs. Keep rogue follicles at bay with a brow or lip wax ($11), or keep faces as smooth and manicured as a topiary sculpture of the Fonz with a full facial wax ($33).

Douglas J Aveda Institute - Knoxville

When the Douglas J Aveda Institute opened in Knoxville in 2011, it joined a family of institutes and salons that Douglas Weaver started in the 1960s. Here, Aveda students pursue certification in cosmetology and esthiology while practicing their craft on real clients under the supervision of licensed educators. And because students perform the services, the rates are lower than at traditional salons. The Knoxville treatment menu includes hair design—cuts, color, retexturizing—as well as Aveda’s Elemental Nature facials, pedicures, and manicures.

The Institute is inside the historic S&W Grand building, a handsome art-deco landmark that, like a compassionate fairy-tale prince, is equally handsome on the inside. The spa rooms have a rustic balance of exposed brick and wood paneling, and the salon’s geometric light fixtures gleam upon checkerboard tile floors and industrial shelving lined with Aveda’s signature products.
