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!!!!!
As a local Massage Therapist myself, I'm in need of monthly maintenance massages from someone else. I'm so happy I found Heather! I have had a massage or two each month since moving to Asheville in August 2012. Some are good, some are so-so, Heather knows what she is doing. Not only does her space feel inviting being so close to a Chiropractor she has a warm, caring, friendly appeal way about her. Totally comfortable. No stress. She listens and applies my needs and wants into the session. Heather even uses hot towels, aromatherapy, and hot stones, no extra charge. I was never a fan of hot stones, but she knows how to use them correctly and therapeutically. She incorporates stretching, and I find odd that others do not. Stretching is very important part of massage. On top off all the above she does Ashiatsu! Everyone needs to get one done, especially if you enjoy deep pressure! She is a gem! A hard to find diamond in the rough (that rough being an overly saturated city full of massage therapists). Highly recommend!
Awesome Tat, look no further than Aacross the Skin★★★★☆I contact the staff at Aacross the Skin in advance to let them know what I was looking to have tattooed and who there could do it. Having had a bad experience at another tattoo parlor, I wasn't interested in someone who 'will probably be the best' to do what I requested. Cassandra assured me Brandon was the guy I needed. Sure enough when I came in on the day, I brought several pictures to give Brandon some ideas of what I was looking for. The went to work drawing up a unique piece of art. I can't say enough great things about the tattoo itself, how at ease the staff made me, how clean the office was. Hell he stopped the clock when he needed to take a break so I didn't get charged for time when I wasn't in his chair. I will only have Brandon tattoo me from now own. I am honored to proudly display his work to the world.
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.
Patrick Flynn has been one of my artists since he worked in Murfreesboro, TN and I've remained close friends with him since moving and have even traveled to him to let him do my work. He is without a doubt one of the best artists out there. He takes time and pays close attention to detail. He cuts up and will try his best to make you enjoy your time while he's tattooing and working on you and for you. He's finished everything he's ever done on me in one session and they've been big pieces and for the work he does, it is pricey but that's what happens when you go to someone who knows what they're doing. Ive never had any issues with the guy and neither have any of the four friends of mine that he has done artwork on. Plan on going back to see him whenever I get downtime from work. Fantastic artist.
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!
There are no words for me to express how grateful I am with travis helping me figure out the piece i needed (when i walked in there having no clue) and for him having the patience to get it on me. It is exactly what i needed and is so gorgeous that i'm just still smiling! Great atmosphere, great employees and super great prices combined with really amazing artwork, so if you would like to get a tattoo done by some honest to goodness really good people, choose these guys and you won't regret it
I was looking for a tattoo shop and as usual, looked online at the reviews and this was the highest rated one I found. So based on these, I decided to try this one and I'm glad I did. The shop is very clean. Brandon did an excellent job on my tattoo, it came out better than i thought it would. The price was very reasonable, he even knocked some off the price after he drew up my tattoo. This is my second tattoo, I've had them both done in Asheville and I wish I would have gone here instead of where I got my first one done. I will be going back to have Brandon fix my first tattoo and also to do my next one.
Been looking all day for an excellent place to get my tattoo done at and I so happened to walk into the BEST shop in Asheville! Brandon did an outstanding job on my realistic roses on my shoulder/arm. Everyone was really nice and you really get a good vibe from the place. Good consulting and great prices. I felt at ease the whole 3 1/2 hours sitting in the chair having great conversations with everyone. I will be going back to Brandon (or anyone their for that matter) for all my future tattoo. Great shop, Great people, one AWESOME time and experience. I highly recommend this place to everyone.
