Beauty & The Bargain

Beauty schools, or more  properly, cosmetology schools not only  provide the  next generation of stylists, but provide folks on a limited budget or simply looking for a great bargain, affordable beauty services.  MarkdownMom recently visited Aveda Institute in Minneapolis, Minnesota for a little pampering.

The Aveda Institute offers not only hair styling and hair cuts, but facials and message, and waterless manicures.  Plus they use their fabulous line of products to achieve your beauty refresher or makeover.  Prices are usually 50% below the market.  It can get crowded on weekends, so MarkdownMom recommends if at all possible make an appointment during the weekday. And when you do,be sure to tell Mike & Courtney “hi” from MarkdownMom!
