Advice re: Aveda Institute

I am going there for the second time for color tomorrow and this time I plan to be more insistent about the styling and things they do that are anti cg that resulted in a lot of frizz ie using a brush on the wet hair, shampoo, touching the curls when wet. I am ging to tell them right away that I don't want those things and that I need to style the hair scrunching in gel and using clips. Any suggestions re: phrasing it are welcome.

I had a couple friends that have straight hair that went there and weren't happy with their cut, which made me sure they wouldn't know what to do with curly hair. This is the aveda salon for students still learning, correct?

Yes, I wouldn't go there for a cut either, just for color. They seem to be fine with color although I haven't done highlights yet there, just one process to cover the gray. But I have highlights from Devachan that are lasting a long time. The cost for the color is great, kind of half of other salons. I plan to tell them my conditions for the curly hair routine. Last time they were okay with just using conditioner for poo although I weakened. I will not this time and I can't have that brush either.

I'd probably call beforehand and explain "CG" and the limitations that it intails. It might be more comfortable that way because it gives your stylist time to prepare the needed equipment and also lets her know that your expectations are different than a regular client. Let her know what Aveda products are okay for your hair and what you would prefer she didn't use- brush etc. As for the styling - maybe just ask to do it yourself unless she is familiar with the method of your choice or you will probably just have to redo it at home anyway. The touching the curls when wet thing might be difficult because if they are colouring your hair they are going to be touching it all the time. I just think it would be better to give her a heads up instead of walking in and listing off your "do's and dont's" without warning.
sorry selfcurledgirl, i see that your original post said color, not cut- my brain was working slow this morning!
I'm sure if you explain the them it's fine. Maybe take your own products with you...? Good luck and let us know how it goes!
