I am very displeased with the experience I had at Avanti salon. When I first arrived, the atmosphere seemed fine and I must admit, the woman who shampooed my hair gave me one of the best head massages, well, ever.
I was dismayed, however, by the poor job done by my stylist Jenida. I booked an appointment with her based on city search reviews, and had high expectations. I was very disappointed, however, in the job she did. From the moment she started cutting my hair to the time she claimed to be finished, only 20 minutes had passed-- including the blow dry. NEVER in my days of paying for $60+ haircuts have I ever experienced such a short cut. After she finished drying my hair, I thought she was going to continue with a dry cut...nope. She asked me how I liked it instead! I was shocked to say the least, considering the amount of time she spent actually cutting my hair was probably under ten minutes.
On top of this, she managed to give me one of the worst and most sloppy looking blowouts I have ever seen. It looked like my hair had air dried, which, mind you, does not look good.
Stupidly I gave this woman a good tip and forgot to tip my shampooer. I will not be going back to this salon, although I did see one woman leave with a beautiful cut. Do not book with Jenida!
Pros: Friendly staff, BEST shampoos
