At this zen like emporium training ground you are able to receive top-notch facial services and hair care using all Aveda products for a song. For skin care, the one hour facial begins in a separate closed off cubicle starting with a sensory journey. Steam, exfoliation, facial massage, an arm and hand massage and one or two masks follow. I have gone to Aveda for this facial for years and it is very uniform no matter who the esthetician. The students here are well trained and the treatment is a very relaxing one. An instructor joins us for a consultation and to make sure the student uses the right exfoliant and mask for your particular skin type. After a little over an hour, I feel refreshed and renewed and smelling like natural botanicals. The one hour facial costs $46 and the school offers other longer treatments. You must book a few weeks in advance as they fill up rapidly especially for Saturday morning appointments.
