Across the street from Michigan State University, we’re the original Douglas J Aveda Institute location, opened in 1986 by Doug Weaver. We’ve had several locations until moving to our current home in 2002 — the same year we won the Aveda Institute of the Year Award!
About the area
The East Lansing Institute borders the northern end of Michigan State University's sprawling, pristine campus. A classic college town, East Lansing provides students and visitors with dozens of restaurants, nightlife options and entertainment venues, all within walking distance of the university. Only a short bus ride from the Institute, Michigan's capital city of Lansing presents even more opportunities for students to watch live sporting events, visit cultural centers and tour the gorgeous State Capitol building downtown.
