Firstly, I wld like to share how much I love Aveda brand I’ve been using your products and getting my hair done at salons since I was 17!!
I believe in this line and everything it stands for.
I travel throughout the state often so I stop by the schools for different services at different times.
Most recently I’ve been to Jax & Orlando.
I must say that management ibas gotten laxed.
I’ve experienced negative hair results that came directly from the lead not the student in (Orlando) also, facials in both Jax and Orlando.
What I must say is that the experience was sub par compared to the recent facial experience I had @ Aveda Tampa.
The lead there is doing an amazing job! I believe she should be teaching all facials departments to operate the same way as their school. The difference is noticeable.
Most recently during this current visit in Jax I had to experience a spa service while the door was open. It was not so great as the barber students I was told were hanging out in the “quiet” spa area. However, they weren’t quiet or respectful to listen to their lead after she asked them multiple times tl keep it down.
My concern is that management may be too laxed if students refuse to respect the quiet time of a service area.
This is very important to a spa experience. We don’t want the art of relaxation during learning to be lost. It’s one of the main goals and motivations to learning. It was sad to experience how this is being lost. I was also told during my service I wasn’t the only guest to express the same disdain.
I understand due to Covid certain open door policies have to be in place or what not. However, we’re still practicing being guest in obtaining an active spa service and quiet is an important part of this process that our students need to remember to maintain in value.
