If you are in need of a professional hair stylist who uses only botanical products, this is the place for you. I returned to the Asheville area after being in another state for 8 years. During my stay, I had the good fortune of being in the care of a stylist who uses the Farouk styling system, Chi products and my hair has never been in such good shape. Coming back here, I wanted the same experience but was misled by a local stylist. I did my research and found this salon. I am so happy to say that not only is this salon professional and quality, but I found the prices are actually cheaper than the salon I went to where I was misled. Woody is the owner and also my stylist. Her dedication to her clients and salon is obvious and she is very willing to accommodate her clients, to the best of her ability. The salon itself is clean and welcoming and I felt good from the moment I entered. If you are at all interested in products that do not contain Ammonia, are good for the hair and head, and colors that are true and long lasting, opt for this salon. If you want to be treated well and spend your money wisely, opt for this salon. You will not be sorry.
WOW!!!!! All I have to say is WOW!!! This salon is the best in WNC. I recently started going to Tyler and he has done my hair 3 times now; and each time, I tell him something new to do and he does it PERFECTLY!!!!! However, this time he suggested that we try something new and modern, "ombre" ...HE DID AN AMAZING JOB!!! The placement was perfect and he was so particular about his work. I left there feeling like royalty, I felt so pretty and had several compliments on my hair all day!!! Thank you Tyler, you are the best!!!I also see Kim for my nails. She is fabulous! She ACTUALLY cares about my nails and wants me to have the best. I love her and I am so glad I found her! Rachel does my eyebrows and I have never felt so pampered while just getting my eyebrows done. I went on my lunch break to get them waxed and left without one welt or red spot on my face! AMAZING!!!I LOVE THIS SALON AND I WILL NEVER GO ANYWHERE ELSE!!!! Everyone there treats me like family and I feel at home everytime I go!!! I actually enjoy going to get my hair, nails and eyebrows done!!! Thank you AVARI family!!! Brandi and Kim you have done a fabulous job!!!!!
Bella Dona is located in a small shopping center, right off Hendersonville Road, making it easy to get to. I had a 4pm facial on a Saturday, the only time open that day. I arrived a few minutes late but the girl who greeted me (and did my massage) was not upset. I had a European facial through Groupon; I filled out a form with my contact info and a few questions on my skin regimen. She was good about telling me what kind of facial she would do based on my answers. The massage room was peaceful and had soothing music playing. In addition to the facial (which was fantastic), she gave a hand and shoulder massage that were great. She used Dermalogica, well stocked in the retail section. At a glance, there's a pretty good selection of beauty items you can buy in the store. No pushy sales pitch, which was nice. Perfect ending to a Saturday afternoon.
Walking in to Lola you are immediately transported to a by gone era of glamor and unpretentious hi-end customer service. You feel welcomed and special and that is just from being greeted with a sparkling beverage! I leave my cares behind and know I am in good hands with the staff of Lola! Rebecca is who I see and my sister sees Liz. We like to make our appointments together and make a girls day of it, ready to get spoiled! You never feel more girlie or well taken care of than when you are at Lola. My friend called to get in with Liz or Rebecca, when they were booked they got a great cut & color from another stylist and were just as happy! I am not the type to write reviews but... I just had to write a glowing review!
ask for becky. she is one of the top stylists, colorists in asheville. she uses the latest products like the INOA (sp?) hair color that is ammonia-free and actually feels good in your hair instead of the smelly, irritated kind. you can book with her direct, too: 551-5712. the shop is not hippest place in the world but becky is :). besdies, who wants to pay an extra $100 to listen to "indie" music in one of those places. becky gives the same or better hair service for a reasonable price...oh, she did my cousin's wedding party too so she does the special occasion stuff...
"You must go to Laura's Canvas to get your hair done!" Run, don't walk. Laura's been my hair stylist for 5+ years and I keep coming back for more. It's such a lovely salon with good energy and talented people. I love it when my calendar says I have a hair appointment with Laura! I always receive the best compliments about my hair where ever I go. And I quickly tell them to head to Canvas. Oh, BTW the current (Jan 2013) location is under Nevada Bob's Golf Store on Hendersonville Rd. Many thanks Laura!!!
Alison is fantastic at her craft. She is a healer, full of love and compassion with all the skills and experience to change the way you feel. Within minutes of stepping into her office, I felt at home in the calm, comfortable environment she created for me. It took her no time to assess my pains and apply her expertise. I went home feeling relaxed, peaceful, and slept the best I have in months. I can't praise Alison highly enough. If you're looking for Acupuncture in Asheville, for God's sakes, go to Alison Downey!!
Relocated and always hesitant to begin with new stylist for highlights as my hair takes color oddly, I have natural curly hair and meds effects my hair too. Amanda just did an amazing job on my hairlights ... I'm elated with her expertise and the atmosphere and service was impeccable!! I highly recommend Full Circle Salon as well as Amanda. Very happy and will absolutely be a steady repeat client.
I have been seeing Racheal Queen for facials at Avari Salon for almost 2 yrs now.She is AWESOME!!! Ladies... you only have one skin...take care of it!! I love the salon! I am personally in this salon once a month & the owners Brandi Smith & Kim Fisher run an impressive salon in West Asheville. These ladies and gentleman do an excellent job and I would highly recommend the salon.
I was very skeptical about this place after reading the reviews but I still went ahead and tried them out since I didn't have a choice. Twinkle was great! The place was very homely and inviting. Twinkle and her sister absolutely know what they are doing and certainly have more than 15 years of experience in threading. This is definitely going to be my trusted place for eyebrow threading!
