Overall
Great Stylists and Service

I've been going to Avant for about 13 years now and have been through several stylists and used different services from them. Overall, I really like the place. I got my last haircut from a stylist that I hadn't used before, Daisy, and she was great. She was really fast and gave me a great haircut that didn't look like I had just gotten it cut. I love that.

The salon always smells nice since they use Aveda's aromatherapy products, and my favorite part is getting my hair washed. The aromatherapy scalp massage is always so relaxing. I also like the other nice touches like a beverage bar with a single serve coffee machine, cold water dispenser, juice pitchers, etc. Also, Avant sometimes has a 15% off sale for their gift cards and Aveda products which are a steal of a deal since they're almost never on sale.

So here's the ugly for why they don't get 5 stars. I had been using a stylist for years and then all of a sudden, she was gone. I found out that she was accused of colluding with some other stylists to start a new salon, so she was let go because of it. Well, I know for a fact that that wasn't the case, and they never apologized to her or even offered to take her back. She had been working there and had worked her way up ever since she graduated from high school. I'm still a little disturbed by this and don't know how I feel about it.
