OMG!!! I got my hair done dark red on 2/10/24 by Carmen and it was THE BEST experience I’ve had at Aveda by far!!! She was such a lovely person and did a wonderful job on my hair. I LOVE IT. The whole time I was there she chatted with me, check in on me regularly, asked if I need anything, and explained the process to me rather well. One of the things I love about Aveda is always meeting new stylists but Carmen made me sad I couldn’t have her regularly! She made sure I left those doors as stylish as can be with more confidence than I’ve done ver had before. I actually loved her so much I told my sister to request her when she got her hair dyed the following week! My sister told me she did a great job for her too and she had just as much of a great experience.
