Beautifciation at the Aveda Institute doesn't come fast. But to indulge in Aveda pampering—tea, scalp massage, earthy and luxurious products—at rock-bottom prices, you can set your schedule aside for an hour. Twelve bucks gets you a cut and style, while color costs between $25 and $55 dollars; compare that to salon prices of $40 and up for a cut and $50 and up for color. The student hairdressers will be happy to see you and they'll treat your hair as if it were their own: carefully combing, cutting, and styling each strand, and then getting excited with you over the results. (Teachers also supervise to make sure everything goes well.) With the money you'll save, you can show off your new cut as you finish your shopping along East Hennepin Avenue nearby.
