I got a base color at Avant Garde the other day (last Friday). The salon is beautiful. Everyone was friendly. I was offered a glass of wine or champagne and as soon as I changed into my smock, I was given a nice glass of pinot noir. Jenn took her time explaining to me the newest coloring techniques offered by the salon as well as the different color lines clients can choose from. So, I was 100% clear on all my options. I told her my goals and budget and she immediately pinpointed a specific base color and I totally agreed with her selection. I liked the fact that color services are done around a round table, and was pleasantly surprised that I found myself engaged in a friendly, four-way conversation with my stylist, another client, and her stylist and we chatted about the latest entertainment news. It was really fun and my color came out beautiful!
