Moved to the area last year and have been putting off finding a new salon, as I loved my previous stylist. Came across Avant Garde via my Instagram and was impressed with their photos. I decided it was time to give them a try – I hadn’t had my hair cut in 8 months! Had a cut and blow dry with Nicole. Not only was she a pleasure to talk to, but she knows her stuff. She had to completely redo my layers and turned my basic cut into a smart and sophisticated look. The real test was after I washed my hair and let it air dry. I have naturally thick and curly hair that usually needs to be flat ironed. The layers looked awesome even in their “natural” state. The salon itself is clean and well maintained. If you’re looking for a new salon, give Nicole at Avant Garde a try. You won’t be disappointed!
