I needed to make a change in my life and decided to follow a desire I had for a very long time. Choosing a place to do this was easy once I entered Aveda Institute of RI. I felt comfortable from the moment I walked in. The closeness and support of the owners, instructors and students is incomparable and the education and kits provided are superior! I know I made the right choice!
