I go to an Aveda salon here in Melbourne. Really fab. My hair colour is the best its ever been and the products I buy from them are brilliant for my hair (Damage Control spray is fantastic in harsh Aussie sun for example). They sell the make up too and I like the eyeshadows but I hated the mascara - if I got the teeniest tiny speck of it in my eye it would really string and make my eyes water unbelievably (so I am back to the Lancome mascara)
No. not worth it, overpriced imvho. I've been to the one in Covent Garden a couple of times and have been disappointed both times I had collected my points as I spend a lot on Aveda products so thought I might as well use them for a cut in the salon, Kept me waiting for 20- 30 mins both times - changed stylist at last minute etc.
The only place I would recommend which is fab is the Aveda Academy also in the Covent Graden Salon - small fee for all services. Highly qualified 'students' who are just getting use to Aveda products iyswim.
