Aveda is so much better than PM. If you want to learn go to Aveda!

I would definitely go with the Aveda Institute. I have great evidence to support my choice, that being my girlfriend showing me Paul Mitchell products and me finding them very boring and annoying. I must say I was not entertained at all. If Aveda Institute even makes products, I am 100% confident that I would like them substantially more.

My girlfriend supports me completely in my claims.

I would also like to add how I find it a great marketing idea that they provide bags of nuts when you buy their products.

Lacey Levandowski in Charlotte, North Carolina said: I attend the Aveda institute in charlotte and absolutely love it. The building is very clean, they give you all the right tools to succeed!

I am really leaning towards going to Aveda in Charlotte, NC. The only problem I am having is finding housing. I am from Greenville, SC, so I would be moving to Charlotte to attend Aveda. Are there any suggestions to where I should live (downtown Charlotte or a residential area)? The cheaper the better for me!

BTW, AVEDA IS NO DIFFERENT! THE ONLY THING IS YOU ARE LIMITING YOURSELF TO LEARING ONLY AVEDA WAYS AND PRODUCTS.
aveda has a mile per salon . meaning each salon has to be a certain mile radius away from each other away. they are really far apart.
if you want a job, the only experience you have will be aveda. and 20,000. to pay back. and no one will care becase you will only have the basics down. and you will only assist any way.
do not move. stay where you are, save your money for advanced training!

Well actually Aveda only cost $16,350 for the full course. Where as Phagans cost around $22 thousand or more, so does PM and Beau Monde. Phagans seems to be doing profiling on people which I have heard plenty of complaints! I wouldn't go there. I def recommend Aveda!

I attend a Paul Mitchell school in Tysons corner, before I started I visited every school within a 30 mile radius, and Paul Mitchell had the best staff, teaching/learning techniques, positive attitude, and kit(everything you need-books, tools, doll heads, makeup kit, etc.) The staff is from a wide variety of positions within the field, and they actually care about your education. They believe they NEED to cater to every leaning type, because everyone processes, stores, and releases information differently. The program allows you to have class and take clients, so that you are prepared mentally and physically for salon/spa life. You are taught important life skills, and encouraged to use them as much as possible in school, to develop good habits. At Paul Mitchell, you don't just "learn things," you grow into a well rounded, educated, and professional individual.

I am currently torn between paul mitchell and aveda, so I have been doing a TON of research, and actually, PM is only 17,500 for the full cosmotology course. So..not much difference in price, just a difference in which school fits you as a person.

I live in Vestavia and attend Aveda in Birmingham, Alabama and the tuition is about 20,000. So it varies on your location I guess. But I would definitely recommend Paul Mitchell. I regret coming here, it is a colt.! It's all about AVEDA, nothing else. If you don't plan on working at an Aveda salon or spa, they don't help you. Paul mitchell has guest every week. Aveda doesnt. My cousin goes to PM and she loves it.

I graduated from the Aveda Institute and do not regret it a bit!! No matter what school you go to you just need to make the most of it!!! If you have passion for the industry nothing can stop you! I might have been trained only in AVEDA but color is color and cutting is cutting its all the same when you know theory! I was overly prepared when I started in the salon! I would pick Aveda personally because of all the opportunities they give you to think outside the box!!

DO NOT go to a Paul Mitchell school. All of their instructors are fresh out of the class. I had a friend that started at the school in Raleigh, NC and she said you don't learn anything you need to and it's not nearly as professional as it looks. I went in for a consultation because I've been looking at beauty schools as well and the instructors at the school do not know what they are talking about. Go with Aveda, that's where I'm going :)

that is absolutely wrong I go to aveda, and i have a milady text book, work book, exam book and i have two binders of aveda you learn both; you learn the aveda way and the state board way. AVEDA IS AN ADVANCED SCHOOL PEOPLE!!!! you have to be able to retain both information. Going to aveda changes your life, lifestyle, and mindset it will be the best experience youve ever had at an institute. Hands down.

I also attended Aveda Birmingham, and the person above is incorrect. The tuition is not that high. In my opinion, you make school what you want to make it. If you are a lazy butt, then you will get nothing out of it. Aveda is a great school, as I am sure Paul Mitchell is as well. It is a personal choice. We have personal guest Tuesday - Saturday. We also have Career Fairs and the staff does assist us with job placement and resumes regardless of where we seek work after graduation.

I attended the Aveda school in Charlotte and know that the products are definitely better than Paul Mitchell. They contain little to no carcinogens. To me, the healthier the product, the better the quality. And the products work so well! Also, you learn so much in their school program, when the time comes to take your state boards, you're ready to go. I passed mine with high scores and barely studied. I would recommend this school to anyone. It actually cost me about $19,000 to go there, but financial aid helps you to get scholarships and grants. You also get to work in the schools salon and make tips from your clients. Also, you have to think about your life after school. Do you want to go to some cheap school (not PM, they are pretty good) and work at great clips afterward, or do you want to go to a great school that can connect you to more high end salons?

I toured both PM Huntsville and Aveda Bham schools. Impressed with Aveda. PM disapointed me because the floors needed to be swept in reception area and other areas you'd expect to "stay" clean. The tour guide disappointed me as well because she seemed unknowledgeable - just going through a script and didn't seem to care. BUT I like the location of PM and want to know how the Huntsville instructors are - do you think they teach you well and prepare you for your career?

Aveda is ridiculously strict. I would know. I got terminated from there TWICE for some nonsense that they accused me of which wasn't even true or proven. And what's even more funny is the school terminates you AT the 3rd week of your second quarter, (that's the week where the school now gets to keep 100% of your tuition, regardless if you completed the rest of the quarter or not). STAY AWAY from Aveda. They are a serious scam and have no humanity in a single ounce in their blood.

I went to pm in slidell, louisiana. It's dirty, they don't teach you anything but hair, at all. You don't learn facials, waxing, body treatments, anything like that. I also know the teachers over at metarie and they are NOT good. The cutting specialist actually cut my hair and messed it up so bad i had to get it cut short :/ it was the worst cut i have gotten in my life. And the makeup specialist doesn't know what he is talking about either. Aveda seems like the way to go

price varies for pm from state to state. in ny it was 35 thou here in north orlando it is about 15 thou, chose the one that fits you. pm has a great atmosphere and you will get what you make of it. whichever school you choose, remember that you should push yourself to do your very best & you will see that the school doesn't make you it just guides you

With Aveda you do get to work on people. Some say Aveda is a cult, and it can be, but in a good way. I do feel after being trained Aveda (not at an institute) and now starting to use PM color/product, I feel like your experience after school is all about where you choose to work/who you work for.Any school is going to teach the basics, everything after that is up to you. The owner of my Aveda salon was a horrible business person and although she was loyal to Aveda, she wasn't loyal to her staff and wasn't the kind of salon owner I hoped for. Her manager just took an Aveda business class and pretty much said that the owner isn't doing anything they said she should be as far as providing education and being involved in her business. She is just in it to not work and make money at this point. It took me a long time to figure it out and up and leave.
I've only been with PM for a week, but I love the new owner, she offered me a free cutting class before I even worked for her. I hadn't had a free class since in school. She is arranging more free in-salon training and is promoting me and the salon to help me build clientelle. She has done more for me in the week I've been with her than my previous salon owner did in over 5 years. That is sad. As for the "brand", you'll find you love some things in some lines, and some in others. No matter who you go with you aren't going to love everything they offer as far as color lines and products. That being said, Aveda does offer a lot of support if you want to really get involved and pursue things on your own and have good business ethics as a company (working off wind power and sourcing ingredients in a way that sustains indiginous communities) and should really be an example to the rest of the beauty industry. They are a little more "mature" in their ways, less edgy and modern and a little behind in product trends. PM is definitely "hipper" and more modern.

Im going to tour the PM in charlotte oct.28th at 1pm. and plan to start class in june =)and your like the 7th person who has sad that they loved it ! i agree with what some of you guys are saying. i think whether or not you like PM or Aveda depends on who you are as a person. TOUR TOUR TOUR and do not always believe the hype. Just because one person hates it doesnt mean you will too =)There are bad reviews on both of the schools yes.. but not ALL schools are the same.

I agree with all of this. Your first objective should be to pass your state board, THEN get continuing education at Paul Mitchell or Aveda. In fact, you can pick up a lot of continuing education at hair shows.

Try your local community colleges for Cosmetology education. Most will have a program unless you live in a very rural area. Milady 2011 is the most recent one.... it has a blue background and a redheaded girl with yellow eyeshadow on the cover. Make sure you get the basic textbook not one of the supplements. The main book will cost somewhere around $70.00.

AVEDA did the exact same thing (and worse) to a friend of mine. She was terminated from their program after a point in time when the "institute" could keep 100% of her tuition. . . and she still has to pay back the student loans that she received. Also, they promised to help her with tuition costs. Once she was enrolled/accepted, they reneged on that promise and later expected her to fulfill ALL of the burden for tuition, books, fees, supplies, etc. They do this to A LOT of people from what I understand.

I went to a community college before transferring to a paul mitchell school... I tried aveda and they were only going to transfer 250 of my hours, whereas paul mitchell would transfer 500 hours. Aveda didn't seem to want me to attend there because they wouldn't help me try to transfer or anything, like they were "too good" or something. When I toured Aveda it seemed really stuck up and uncomfortable there. I toured The Esani Institute i Paul Mitchell partner school and I felt right at home. Everyone there seemed really friendly and they taught me so much there. I ended up transferring to another Paul Mitchell school and they did everything they would to get all of my hours from Esani and the community college I attended... so I would have to say that if your going to choose between the schools, go for Paul Mitchell because they are more laid back and they are actually interested in YOUR future :)
