I'm new to the Simpsonvillle area and read the 24 reviews for Avalon Hair Studio. Since 21 out of 24 reviews were fabulous, I made a appointment. Debbie is wonderful, great high and low lights and a super cut. I've been to places on 5th Avenue in NYC and they could learn something from Debbie. This is the place to go for awesome hair that you can live every single day in and feel good about yourself.

I am new to the area and everyone knows it is hard to find the important people that you will need in your life. A good hair dresser is one of them!
I saw a woman at the post office and got up my nerve to ask her who did her hair. She replied the girls at Avalon.
She actually has been to two of the ladies and loves them both! They are Debbie and Michelle.
I have been to Debbie and I will go again! She performed a miracle on my hair color! In Florida it got very dry!
I wish I knew her name to thank her for telling me about Avalon!
I met several of the other ladies and they are very helpful also. Now..to find a doctor.

I have been going to Deb now for 4 years. Never have I had a bad service! My hair is half way down my back,is permed, colored, and is healthy as can be! I dont know what your problem is! Are you a jealous competitor or a ex-employee trying to do harm? Its sad that the internet can be used in these ways! I will never let anyone else but Deb do my hair ever again! She has clients that have been coming to her for 20 plus years now! As far as the attack on others in the salon, I have been around long enough to know them as well. I also know that you are inventing bad stories to tell. I further more know that you are very un-educated and need some grammer lessons! My advice to others is to make an appointment and enjoy a relaxing experience of having your hair done the way you want it by people who have a multitude of experience!

I went in with a clear idea of what I wanted and with two pictures. Debbie looked at them, listened to me, and said she understood. And then she cut my hair completely differently, into a style which is the absolute worst thing...I HATE it. It looks nothing like what I wanted. It looks nothing like those pictures I showed her. I am going to have to get my hair re-done (by someone else! I don't trust her at all) and it will have to be much shorter than what I originally wanted to fix what she did. All I can figure is that her positive reviews online, which led me to make an appointment with her, were posted by friends and family of hers and not clients.

I went to Debbie to have her corrext a color that I was stupid enough to try at home. I made a total mess out of my hair. I called her crying and she got me in there within the hour! She sat me down took my hat off, and told me that she could fix it without a doubt! I was in shock, as my hair was a mess....I thought I would have to cut it all off! After about 45 minutes my hair was rinsed and it was blown dry. My hair was PERFECT!! It looked so healthy and shiny. I couldn't believe it. Debbie can work magic! Plus, she didn't charge me but $65.00! That is much less than what I have paid in the past! I will be a life long client of hers and will take my entire family to her as well. GREAT JOB!

After reading these reviews, I took the plunge and made an appointment. I went in and told Debbie to do whatever she felt was necessary to make my hair look nice and age appropriate for me. I did however specify that I did not have a lot of styling abilities so to please make it easy for me to maintain. I have always worn my hair long and straight.
I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO PLEASED IN ALL OF MY LIFE!!! I never knew that it could be so easy to look good every day without a lot of fuss and a lot of time spent on my hair! As a mother of three small children, I just do not have the time to spend on my hair, but with the color and the perfect cut it literally falls into place by itself!!! Thanks City Search!!
The salon is quite relaxing and nice too!!

Don't judge a book by it's cover! This salon is in a brick house that I would say is about 50 years old. There is not a lot that they can do to make it look better on the outside, but I was so surprised when I saw the inside! It is decoratred in a beach theme ( hence the sea grass outside with the light house ) . They have relaxing music playing with ocean waves mixed in with it, and everyone is in a seperate room!
When I left I felt like I had been on vacation!
BTW..... my color and cut looked great too!!! It was matched up perfectly to what I had been getting in Pa. with no problem!
After just moving from out of state, it was refreshing to meet such friendly people!

I went in this week for a bikini wax.I had never had the nerve to do it before. A friend of mine recommended I give Debbie a try, so I did.
It was a lot easier than I thought possible! I will never deal with all the messy things I have tried in the past for this ""problem hair.""
As far as your daughter goes, you didn't say how old she is. Maybe she is not old enough to be waxed if she can't sit still long enough to have the wax applied. Much less her skin so sensitive to wax.

I took my daughter to Debbie at Avalon Hair Studios for an eyebrow and lip wax. I have never seen such a disaster of a wax job in my life. First, Debbie (who is very personable and funny) had my daughter sitting in a chair instead of laying on a table. The wax was dripping in my daughter's hair, which Debbie had to cut out with a scissor. By the time we left, my daughter still looked like she needed an eyebrow wax, and not only that, but Debbie had actually lifted the skin right off my daughter's face, which now has a red scab on it. Had I known that Debbie had hurt my daughter, I would have left without paying, but my daughter didn't say anything about it until we were in the car.

I went to Avalon after reading the long review thinking it may have been a little over rated. I was wrong! Everything was exactly as was stated! I asked what hairstyle that Debbie thought I would look the best in and she did it. I told her to do with my hair what she felt would suit me the best, and it did! I have never had my hair look so good or be so easy to style! It naturaly falls into place and cut my styling time down from about an hour to less than fifteen minutes! I actually have less hair now but it looks and behaves like I have more hair!
I asked her how she does it and she said it was experience. I am not ever going to pay another high dollar ""show operation"" again to mess up my hair! I will stick to experience and someone that cares about their prefession and who truely wants to help people with their hair!
All of the staff there are friendly and helpful, although I did ask for Debbie as all the reviews seem to contain her name.

I moved to SC two years ago from the West Coast and I had to try four different salons beforeI found Avalon Hair Studio. At first it threw me when I pulled up and the salon was in a house on Main St. in Simpsonville, but when I walked in I received a very warm and friendly welcome from three very nice hairstylists. My stylist Debbie took me back to her station which was in one of the bedrooms set up in a beach theme which was cool. I walked in feeling drab with a hairstyle that didn't blend well making it hard to style every morning and spending extra time that I didn't have. Well Debbie changed that, she gave me an excellent cut with style, volume, bounce and a lot of movement! The next day I dryed my hair upside down and did not even use a brush to style, and when I was finished drying it, I had a style like you wouldn't believe. Now that is an excellent cut. I am so happy with my hair!!! I will also mention she is a perfectionist and double checked her work even though she has been cutting hair for thirty-two years! Needless to say I highly recommend Debbie at Avalon. I am sure the other stylists are also fabulous. There was only one down side which may not even be a down side. She did not ask me how I like to wear my bangs but the way she cut them was exactly how I like them cut, side bangs, so I lucked out. It's very possible that she observed how I was already wearing them when I walked in so didn't feel the need to ask me before trimming them. Also, when I made the appt. I didn't ask how much she charged because when it comes to my hair it doesn't matter so when it came time to pay and she said the price was $30 my jaw just dropped!! I have been paying somewhere between $45 and $75! To only charge $30 was a nice shock, that just topped the great experience I had with Debbie at Avalon Salon.

I booked an appointment with Debbie on a recommendation from City Search reviews and I am so glad I did!
It is not very easy moving across the country and not knowing anyone. I recently married and found myself away from all family and friends.
Aside from doing the best color and cut I have ever had on my head, she gave me her home and cell phone number in case I got lost and needed anything. I now have an ""adopted"" mother to call on!
For great hair and a great relationship, give her a try!!!!

I have never been happy going to a female stylist before today! I got the best haircut I have ever had in my life!
The staff is friendly and the shop is neat and clean. Each stylist is in a separate room, not lined up at a counter top! Very personable!!!

I felt very comfortable the minute I met Debbie. She put all my worries at ease while asking me questions about my lifestyle and what I wanted my hair to do. Instead of asking me to pick out a picture of a cut I wanted, she suggested to me what she felt would be good for me and it turned out great!!
We had so much fun that I did not want to leave when my appointment was over! I now have a new stylist and friend!
Thank you City Search for making my moving transition so much easier by finding the best ever!!

This has been the best experience I have ever had at a salon anywhere! Never have I been treated so well. The experience speaks for itself! I was not asked how I wanted my hair cut, but a suggestion was made as to how it should be cut and she was so very right! The cut fits my life style and my face as well as my hair type! I just shake my head to style my hair !!!
I will definitely go back again and again!!! Debbie is the best bet ever!!!!

I have just moved from N.C. and was very nervous about finding a new stylist with good color skills. I found Avalon on this site and then visited the Avalon site. I decided to give them a try.
Debbie, the owner, was wonderful! My color has never looked as good as it does now! The style is very easy to fix and saves me a lot of time!
The salon is very relaxing and peaceful! Great on pricing too!
