I'm surprised to see the two negative reviews on here because I've been a loyal fan of Chad's for the past 11 years. I met him at L'eau de Vi and then followed him to Clay to Wink to his newest home, his very own Salon Intution. I've lived all over the world and have had my hair cut and colored by the stylists in some of the most style-conscious cities in the world (including Kim Kardashian's stylist in NYC) and I can genuinely say that I have never found anyone as talented as Chad. I currently live 8 hours away from Asheville (where I grew up), but I still make the trek back every few months to go to Chad. If he were in any major metropolitan city, you can be sure that you'd have to book months in advance and you'd also be paying hundreds and hundreds for his talent. I've sent many of my hometown friends his way over the years and now they too board planes to see him before they let anyone else touch their heads. He's an artistic master with a truly kind soul and if he's ever running late it's because he cares genuinely about making every client feel great about his work. He will take the time to do precise, quality work whether you're a new client or a veteran like myself. For that I will always return to him and I will gladly wait a few extra minutes because I know he will give me the same care and attention. I get compliments on my hair all the time. I can't recommend him highly enough.

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!!!!!
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.
I saw his ad in the Mountain Express and was a bit skeptical of the legitimacy of his claims since he only charges $16 and most people with that experience would charge in upwards of $50. I stopped by the place on my way home last week and was even more skeptical as I walked in to the 12x12 hole in the wall. He greeted me with a friendly smile and I told him I was skeptical and curious about his services. He asked me if I had time for a consultation and I told him my problems with my hair and he quickly diagnosed my problem (mineral buildup), told me he would wash my hair at no-cost and apply a deep-conditioner to help break down the build-up and repair my hair. I was pleasantly surprised, and shocked at the way my hair felt afterward. I came back a few days later for a hair-cut and he was very sensitive to my needs and concerns. I had a great hair-cut, great customer service and would recommend him to anyone, especially if you have "problem" hair.
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.
Every girl knows the scariest prospect in moving to a new city is the search for a good hairstylist! Since I am a blonde masquerading as a redhead, I needed a knowledgable, experienced colorist....and as I just recently chopped off a couple FEET of hair in a "nasty divorce" makeover, I needed a stylist with vision for an edgy/trendy cut. I'm THRILLED to say I found both in Carlton at Eclipse Salon!! The salon staff was fantastic - I was able to book an appointment the next day, and Carlton, who is new to the area from Denver, was absolutely fabulous!! I walked out with a phenomenal new cut and vibrant color, while feeling as if I'd found a charming, talented new BF in the laid back, friendly atmosphere of Eclipse.......LOVE IT!!
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!
Flew into Asheville on a Thursday. Had a coperate function that Friday night. I absolutely love to be pretty but you know I just cant style myself so well! Luckily I was able to get a wonderful recommendation on Avari hair. It must have been my day I got an afternoon appointment with a sweet girl named Brittany. I would just like for people to know that I was the queen of the ball that night. I don't believe ive ever had so many complements. A quick highlight and trim with a awesome uplift makes a women walk with confidence. Thank you so much girls at Avari. I'll defontently be back when I'm in town!!
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!!!
