When Douglas Weaver opened his first salon in East Lansing in 1967, he had a vision for the kind of business he wanted to build, one that would not only provide superb service and style to clients, but one that would also aid budding stylists on their career paths. That vision is now a reality, with Douglas J Aveda Institutes and salons located throughout Michigan and the country. The institutes provide nascent hairdressers with the skills they'll need to go pro, while giving the public the chance to receive top-notch salon services at discount rates. Style and service, at both the schools and the pro salons, are still paramount.
