At Douglas J Aveda Institute, the instructors and owners are very meticulous and proud of what happens in the building. We learn the best health procedures along with helping the environment by recycling and using natural products. The course work is challenging but it is to build you to be the best cosmetologist you can be, not just with skills but with the way you provide your services. The customer is treated like royalty at DJAI. This Institute was the greatest place I could have gone to learn skills in cosmetology.
