Douglas J Aveda Institute Offers Discounted Beauty Services

Douglas J Aveda Institute is an upscale beauty school located at 516 S. Gay Street. Students perform services such as cut, color, manicures, pedicures, and facials, all supervised by licensed stylists and estheticians.

With summer in full swing, I was recently in desperate need of a pedicure. A friend had mentioned her good experience with Douglas J, so I decided to give them a try…and I’m glad I did.

I scheduled an Elemental Nature Pedicure for one morning last week. When I arrived, I got to choose my bottle of polish that I learned I actually got to keep. Stephen greeted me and we went to a serene area of the salon where they do the pedicures as well as manicures. My feet were thoroughly pampered over the next hour–they were massaged, soaked, and toes painted.

A supervisor examined Stephen’s work and offered a bit of feedback about his painting technique. While this wasn’t the most skilled pedicure I’ve ever received, it was far better than I could have done myself–and best yet, it was more affordable than many of the higher end salons in town.

Currently, Groupon is offering a deal for $25 for a $50 beauty treatment at Douglas J Aveda Institute. Note that when you go to use your Groupon, you must use the entire amount at one time. I didn’t realize this when I scheduled my pedicure, so I still have my Groupon to use. Guess I’ll just have to get a pedicure AND a manicure next time!

This IS NOT a sponsored post. I just had a good experience at Douglas J Aveda Institute and wanted to share it with FFK readers. The Groupon link is an affiliate link.
