Great Color, Great Cut... – I've been highlighting my light brown hair for around 10 years, and the prices in NYC are not cheap for monthly maintenance, so I decided to go back to being brunette. In fact, I wanted to go a step or 2 darker than my natural hair color and I wanted the color to last...(If Cameron could do it and work it, so could I !) I had gone to a different salon for lowlights a few times, but the color didn't last long enough and it was just as costly as highlights. I went to Aveda after trying their "Personal Blend" conditioner and had Jimmy, a master stylist, do my double process. He first added a reddish tint to put color back into my bleached-out ends, and then did a warm chocolate on top. At first, I must admit, it was very dark...but I had a few very natural-looking highlights put in around the crown and after a month of washing it looks FABULOUS! It looked good when it was done, totally even color. Now it looks 100% natural (I am fair-skinned, so the super dark hair wouldn't work) and really healthy....I had a hair cut with Brent the same day, and he did a fantastic job. I 'm very pleased and I will definitely go back for haircuts,,,,my color, thankfully, is now LOW MAINTENCE! Love it!!
The whole process cost about $300 for cut and color, but it took half a day, i got hot tea and a head/neck/hand massage and now i only have to go back only every few months for a trim. It's worth the money.
This place is as friendly to the earth as it is to your hair. – The Scene
An amber glow definitely radiates from the West Broadway Aveda store and hair salon. Enlightened visitors can sip the custom blended "comforting tea" while reading "purefume" descriptions or sampling aromatics. Ecologically sound Aveda beauty products are developed exclusively from plant life. No animal-loving urban dweller should be without something from Aveda, as every toiletry can benefit from its customized personal blends.
Haircuts prices are dependent on whether you have an appointment with one of their new talents or an experienced master stylist. Whoever does your 'do, Aveda uses two types of plant-based hair dyes. The permanent hair color is 97 percent naturally derived and the semi-permanent is a whopping 99 percent. The "Shades of Enlightenment" will decorate your drab NYC locks with six shades of California blond.
worst experience of my life! – I went to this salon to get my hair colour done..i asked the stylist for a couple of shades darker, a nice rich brown i recall asking for. whilst the colour was on my hair i reaffirmed with her that i did not want it too dark!! i also commented on how dark the colour looked when the dye was on and she gave me the excuse that it always appears darker than it is.....i knew something was wrong when they took me to the basin to rinse it off...basically i had jet black, blackest of black hair, and considering i have a pale complextion you can understand my horror....she tried to then tell me this was dark brown and what i had asked for!! they then had to strip my hair to try get some of the colour out, which has complately dried out my hair, and i left the salon with 2 tone hair, lighter on the bottom, dark on top...they actually charged me money for this...of which i paid, then realised how stupid i had been, walked back in and demanded a refund....they were actually quite rude indeed at this point!!!! point is i have to live with this for at least a month till it fades naturally- save yourself the time and money and DO NOT go here - my 3 year old neice could have done a better job with a home colouring kit!!!!! AWFUL
Great Oils! – I had a massage there a while back and will say that to this day it is still one of the better massages. It is not a froo froo as the other salons but gets the job done!
Quality Cuts, Color, and Service – Have been going there for about 2 years - started going when another salon botched a coloring - haven't even thought about going to another place since. It may cost more - but it is well worth it- I have never recieved so many complements on my hair. It is more than a hair salon - going there is a mini spa expereince!
color my world – I went back for my 2nd time to Aveda so that "Sheri" could apply the same color tint she did 6 months ago ... I may have paid about $100 for it, but I get EXACTLY what I ask for, a hand massage, as much tea and conversation as I'm in the mood for, and an overall relaxing and completely satisfying experience. Aveda is the first salon I've been to where I feel sure I want to return.
