I have been coming here for many years, and have received amazing treatment from everyone who has done my hair! Everyone has been super friendly, and has done an amazing job. Shari is also the most kind and generous instructor. I love coming here!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I recently visited Aveda IBW to get my hair done by a student, and I had an absolutely fantastic experience! From the moment I walked in, the atmosphere was welcoming and professional. The student stylist who worked on my hair was knowledgeable, attentive, and clearly passionate about their craft. Despite being a student, their skills were impressive and the result exceeded my expectations. My hair looked amazing, and I received numerous compliments afterward. The best part? The service cost a fraction of what I would normally pay at a professional salon. I highly recommend Aveda IBW for anyone looking to get quality hair care at an affordable price. It's a great way to support up-and-coming stylists while enjoying top-notch service. I will definitely be returning!

I can’t say enough good things about Aveda IBW. I went to school here as well and everyone is always so kind. I went back recently and Brooke was great. She did a color retouch on me and she was so great at paying attention to detail. And so sweet! Kyle is also fantastic and so helpful. I’ll be back!
