I was referred to Michelle Edwards by my boss. I had gone to another salon and was not happy with the color result. I went to Michelle in a panic and she ?color corrected? my hair and worked with me, on conditioning and care, until I was able to get high lights. I am very happy with the service I received. She gained a customer and a referral service. I tell everyone about Michelle and Salon Avalon.

I have wanted to find a new stylist for a while now. After a careful review of this site, I got the courage to leave my salon/hairdress and make an appointment with Liz at Avalon. I was holding my breath because you never know how these things are going to turn out, but she did a great job with my hair and I was really pleased. I made a color appointment with her for the following week, and was really looking forward to it; but before the time arrived, the salon called and said that she no longer worked there. I was so disappointed. It's so hard to find a great stylist, and this one slipped right through my fingers. If anyone knows where LIz has gone, please post!! As far as Avalon goes, they were friendly and clean and I have no complaint sabout them. They did take the initiative to book me with another stylist and called to let me know, but I just really want to find Liz. Please help if you can!

After reading some of these reviews I thought I would try them out. My experience was so/so and I paid way too much for a haircut. Now I wonder how many of these reviews were written by their staff?

I went in to get my brows waxed and Denise took the time to make sure they were perfect and just what I wanted. She did not rush me or make me feel like she was on a time frame. We also talked about skin care and she made suggestions of things I could do and should do to make my skin look its best. I did not feel like I needed to go home and throw all my other stuff away, she just added a few products to complete what I do daily. They sell the Pevonia products and I have never used such exceptional products and now I cant wait til I run out of my other products so I can use the whole line of Pevonia.

As soon as I walked into the salon I was greeted with an hello and a smile, within 30 seconds I was offered water or coffee. This was my first time coming to this salon and after my visit, I will never go to anyone else again!!! I had an appointment with Elizabeth. I told her what I wanted based upon the shape of my face, brought a picture for her to look at, and she did exactly the hairstyle in the picture I wanted. I knew I wanted come color, but didn't really know what direction to go with it. Liz made some very helpful suggestions and told me what would probably work best for me. She did all over color but then also did some highlights on the top of my head using that same overall color. I am so impressed!!! When I saw my hair all done, I couldn't believe it! The color was fabulous and the highlights were even better! I told Liz that I was simple girl, wanted some color, something people would notice was different, but not too out there. Liz did exactly what I wanted! This is hands down the best haircut and color I have ever had in my entire life. The color is my favorite, it's so natural and subtle, yet enough to get a head turn. I live in the Austin area BUT...I will definitely make the trip to SA so I can see Liz for all my hair needs. The overall price was around 225.00. That is a lot more than I have ever paid in the past, however, I have never had such a wonderful haircut and fabulous color so I'll continue to pay this in the future at Avalon because I know Liz is going to do such a fantastic job! I highly recommend this place to anyone!

Elizabeth (Liz) has been doing my hair for a very long time and I'm never disappointed. The cut is always just what I want but the color is OUTSTANDING. She takes the time to find out what you want and explains exactly what process she will be using. She's a kind and thought professional that's interested in bringing out the very best in her guest. Being lazy I made the mistake of seeing another stylist that bleached my hair to very, very blond highlights and my hair is naturally very dark. Need less to say Liz was straight forward and told me not to bleach my hair again and took care of the uneven color with her expertize. It's now this wonderful warm mocha color with a few low lights around my face. My husband loves it and so do I. When you find that PROFESSIONAL that can take care of you take the drive and stick with the person you can truly trust. She puts her best foot forward to make you feel comfortable. I left the salon with my head held high feeling beautiful and very confident with what she had done for me. Everyone from the stylist to the owner Billly make you feel welcome and comfortable. The salon itself has a very peaceful atmosphere and it's not hard to find. So in my experience Elizabeth is kind, professional, a good listener and extremely knowledgable in what she does. She has my recommendation totally and completely.She's AWESOME!!!

I would like to say that Michelle Edwards does amazing things with hair. I have "difficult" hair with high maintenance needs. She is a highly trained color expert and has skillful/modern cutting techniques. Staying on top of the current trends makes her able to update any style or give you a new look. She begins with a consultation and will discuss your wants and needs, while making sure your look is current and fashionable. The entire experience is pampering for your soul and hair. I highly recommend Michelle.

I'm in a hurry so I'll try to write fast and hope that it makes sense. I have been searching for someone to do my hair for so long. Let's say that I have been looking for 6 years! Last year I tried Hair Studio @ Sonterra and after paying $ 180.00 I walked away crying from the nightmare and having to pay more money at the store to at least use box dye to get my hair to a decent color. So still needing help I tried this site AGAIN and read the reviews about Sarah. "What the heck" I say to myself, "Let's give her a try." I called on Thursday and got in the next day And I am so glad that I did. She is not only nice and attentive but she worked fast and precise. Most ppl stick you under a dryer and just wait til the timer goes off. Not her she was checking every 5 minutes to make sure that I would have the perfect color. Not only that but the cut was great too. Even my biggest critics (my Boys) liked it all. Then of all things I use the restroom not knowing that I dropped $20 and the nice man that works there came to me to return it. The honesty was very nice. I also liked the fact that she didn't try to sell me ever item on the shelf. I had no pressure from her at all. I tell you I love her! Everyone was nice and always offering wine, coffee, water. It was so nice. I am sold and going to Sarah from now on. I live in the Boerne area but she is worth the drive even with the gas prices. I am picky and not an easy person to please but Sarah got everything right and will forever be the #1 person that I go to from now on. JuJu

I've been going to Monica for 4 years now and I love her! I don't trust anyone else to touch my hair! She always cuts it right and the way I want it! She is quick but it's always perfect! I get in before my appointment and for a hair cut, wash and style, I am out in about 15 minutes! I recommend her to everyone who talks about getting their hair cut or styled. I had her do hair at my wedding and it was absolutely beautiful!!! After getting my hair cut from her, I am always happy and feel good about the cut! Random strangers have given me compliments because of her cut! She is friendly and great to talk to! She listens to what you want and does it. I go to her for everything I may need done to my hair! The salon is also very comfortable and pleasant to be in. I'd recommend everyone to go try it out!

I went into Avalon Hair Design on a whim since I live right down the street and boy I?m glad I did! I have been looking for a place to do my hair the way I want it for years. I made an appointment. with Natalie and not only was she very friendly but the whole experience was very relaxing. Not only did she cut my hair the way I wanted it but she took the time to show me how to style it and explained what products she was putting on my hair to help me get the same look at home. . This is the first time I have ever been able to style my hair on my own everyday and have it turn out the way I want it and without spending hours on it. Thanks Natalie! I?ve told all my friends about Avalon, now I'm sharing it with you.

After visiting literally hundreds of salons over the last 10 years in many different states, including many in the San Antonio area, and spending literally thousands of dollars for bad haircuts and bad color, I decided to do some intense research on the Internet, instead of just picking out the next "big ad" in the local Yellow Pages. My travels on the Internet landed me at Avalon Hair Design & Spa. After a very pleasant chat with the owner, Billy McCloskey, I made an appointment for a cut and color. Monica cut my hair and did a wonderful job. She listened to what I said and cut my hair according to my desires. I will definitely return and have Monica continue to cut and shape my hair in the future. She has a wonderful personality, is very meticulous about her work, and is an outstanding stylist! She also performed my color. I challenged her to produce the result of which I had been desiring for years, indicating to her that nobody else had been able to achieve the color highlights that I wished for. I was extremely skeptical at first, but she assured me she could produce the result I wished to attain. To my total amazement, she did just that!! By using a combination of highlights and lowlights, she accomplished a brilliant transformation and a stunning result. I now have the cool tones in my hair that no other hairstylist has ever been able to achieve. She performed no magic; Monica simply knows how to color hair. She truly is a brilliant woman when it comes to the world of hair. She is absolutely amazing!! I am so grateful to Monica. In addition, she was very hospitable and made me feel right at home and very comfortable during my salon visit. After visiting Avalon Hair Design Salon, I will trust my hair to nobody else! On this day, history with my hair has indeed been made. Thank you so much, Monica, you made my day!

My gray was out of control and I have had some bad experiences at other salons. I always wanted to maintain my natural hair color and I would end up getting a completely different hair color then what I wanted. My co-worker recommended I visit her stylist, Natalie at Avalon. When I arrived, Natalie and the staff welcomed me, she then took her time to discuss the cut and color. Not only did Natalie do an excellent job she recommended products that I could use to maintain my "New Look". My husband's and co-workers all commented that I looked like I was in my 20's again. They loved the new look. Thanks Natalie and Avalon for transforming my image

Great Salon, I am new to San Antonio and was referred to Avalon by a co-worker. My stylist (Natalie) did a wonderful job on my highlights and I will strongly recommend Avalon to all my friends. Also the atmosphere is very pleasant, they make you feel like family.

This was my first visit to Avalon and when I walked in I just knew that I found my new "home-salon". I have been getting my hair done for many years by various salons and have not always been completely happy. However, at Avalon I left 100% happy with the outcome. The minute I walked in the salon everyone was so friendly and accommodating. Monica did an awesome job on my color and hair cut. I have tough gray to cover and she was able to cover it well with no problem at all. She really cared about what I wanted, not what she thought would be cute on me. I have another appointment scheduled for this week. I have told my friends about Avalon, they are not ready to make the change yet, but when they do they will be happy they did. It's a great place!!

Getting highlights can sometimes be a scary choice for a girl, but Natalie is at the top of her game when it comes to color and highlights! She makes sure you get the "natural" look which takes some skill, and she definitely has what it takes to make you look like a rockstar! Their prices are very reasonable and the outcome and professional advice you receive is priceless! I have recommended this place to several people and would trust nobody else when it comes to getting a professional look!

I was so disappointed in my hair cut from Sarah, especially after reading all the wonderful reviews on Citysearch!! I felt as though she did not listen to what I wanted AT ALL, and I was very specific. She was about to cut a huge hunk of bangs back into my hair, after I sepcifically told her I was growing them out. In addition, I requested a very popular hair cut, and she did not deliver. I felt I paid a lot of money for a hair cut I would have expected from a novice at Supercuts... not a pricey hair salon. Now i have to decide if it is worth going back to have her try and "fix" it.

Monica does an amazing cut and color! I made the mistake of going to an aveda salon and had my hair color completely botched. She corrected my color and made my hair the most beautiful shade. The cut was amazing as well she listen's intentively. And in turn gave me the best expeirence. Producing exactly what I had described. The staff is great as well no snooty receptionist here! Also love their Redken products!

I have been to this salon four times now and I just love it! Their professional, friendly staff are all top notch! They make you feel right at home and they listen to what you want and are more than willing to offer their honest professional input. I never miss an opportunity to recommend them because I am so impressed with their services. So pardon the pun, they are truly 'a cut above' all of the rest. Natalie is such an accomplished stylist and I am AMAZED at what she can do with my 'baby fine' hair! I look and feel ten years younger every time that I step out of this salons door, and believe me, that feeling is priceless! Oh, and their product line is no less than stellar ! So if you want someone that truly understands every aspect of your hair, this is THE SALON!

I moved to San Antonio and was really concerned that I wouldn't find a good hair stylist. Not only did a find a good stylist, but I found an awesome one. Natalie is the best. She is professional, competent, and very friendly. She treats me like I am her only customer. I most strongly recommend her and the entire staff to my friends and family. I am truly grateful that someone recommended Natalie to me.

Liz has been doing my hair for years...and I am yet to be disappointed! I usually have an idea of what I want when I go into see her, but she always seems to amaze me. I can give her an idea of what I kind of want and she can turn it into something wonderful! When it come to color, she's probably on one of the best. Her artistic touch really adds to her talent as a hair dresser and I always love to see what she can do with my 'problem' hair! I always look forward to visiting with her as well! She's super sweet and really great at what she does. You won't be disappointed!

I have been getting my haircut by Sarah for the last 3 years. In my experience she is the best hairdresser that I have ever had. I have never walked away with a bad haircut from her. In fact, I have LOVED every single cut she has ever given me. She is patient, friendly and extremely talented. The service is amazing and the products that they use are the best. I feel like a million bucks when I walk out of Avalon after getting my hair done. I would recommend this to anyone without hesitation.

I have always had a hard time figuring out how to get the right hairstyle. From my first visit to Avalon Salon, I new that I had found the Salon that I would be returning to again and again. It's been a year and a half now, and I have never looked better. Their Staff is incredibly talented and have an extensive knowledge of all the current "tricks of the trade". Communication is excellent, and their ability to guide the uncertain client is quite appreciated. Both color and cuts are outstanding. I have Monica as my stylist and she is the best! The atmosphere and attitude is extremely warm and friendly. Try Avalon Hair Design, you won't regret it. My boyfriend is always so exited to see me when I come home! -a

I just recently moved back to SA from living in Florida for 4 years and I have struggled trying to find the perfect salon and stylist and I need not look any further! Monica is the absolute best at Avalon and the staff made sure I was comfortable and situated the moment I walked in the door. They properly greeted me with their warm and welcoming smiles! Monica has such a bubbly and witty personality and she makes the little time you spend with her memorable! I am half Black/Korean and I my curls are of a distincitve nature and she knew exactly what to do with my hair and she cut it in a style that was so simple and easy yet chic and sassy!! The Salon is very upscale however you don't deal with over priced services or fake and snotty personalities!I LOVE YOU MONICA AND THANKS FOR MAKING THIS MAMA TO BE FEEL LIKE A DIVA!

I have not had my hair done in awhile because I am always dissapointed with the results. I have thin hair and its hard to work with. I decided to try Avalon after reading the reviews. My appt was with Kourtney. She made me feel very comfortable as I was very nervous. The whole process was great from start to finish. She explained everything in the beginning and step by step as you went. She did full color & highlights, and I finally got the color blonde I have been wanting for 10 yrs. The cut was great also. It made my thin hair appear thicker and it has great movement!!!! Im really glad I took the chance on this salon and would recommend the stylist Kourtney to all. I finally found a home salon, no more bouncing around.

After moving to San Antonio, I waited awhile to find a stylist and did a lot of asking around . I wasn't satisfied with comments people gave me whether it had to do with price, personality of stylist, location, etc. After researching on the web, I found City Search and read the reviews of salons. I decided to give this salon a try because of the great reviews and I'm very glad I did! Monica has been wonderful since I walked in the door. She is very friendly and bends over backwards to keep her clients happy. I've even had to call her at the last minute when I botched up my hair by trying to throw a few highlights in myself before going out of town. She let me come in that night and fixed it even though I overheard her on her cell and she was supposed to be meeting some friends. She also took the time one night to do several tryout updos on me for my daughter's wedding so I could see what looked good on me and took pictures of them to take with me, even though the wedding was out of town and I'd have my hair done by someone else. That was so helpful to me. I'm middle-aged, and she gives me a style and cut/highlights that are right for me, so any age can be comfortable calling Monica. She can do funky or professional. She'll listen to you and do everything she can to make you a happy satisfied client.

I went off of the recommendation of my mother to get my hair cut at Avalon. I made an appointment with Natalie and she did a fantastic job. I was very resistant because I was going to be cutting ALL of my hair off. I explained to her what I wanted and she did JUST that. I loved it! She had a welcoming personality and we ended up having a great conversation to go with my great hair cut. The pricing is reasonable and I highly recommend Avalon to my friends.

When I moved to San Antonio,Texas I tried many different places to get a great hair cut and color. As a result of a bad experience in trying my hair was in bad condition. Finally I was very lucky and found Natalie at Avalon Hair Design and Spa. She gave me a really Sassy hair cut and color and got my hair in great shape, and she has been doing a shampoo and style every week and cut and color when needed to keep it looking adorable for two years now. I moved to Austin,Texas in January of this year, but I am still driving to San Antonio to Natalie for my sassy hair cut and color and style weekly.She is absolutely the best and if you want a great cut and color,please do not hesitate to call and make an appointment .You will not regret it. I get more compliments on my hair and so will you. All the people at Avalon are very personable and if you want the Royal treatment thats the place to go. Natalie, thanks for all the wonderful things you have done to make me feel so special and pampered. Love my hair cut. I cannot imagine anyone else doing my Sassy Cut. See you Friday. Joan

On the advice of my sister who gets her hair done here, i decided to give Avalon a try. I had been going to the same stylist for 3 years and was getting inceasingly unhappy with my hair. I went to Sarah at Avalon, who has been at this salon for over 5 years now, and I got the best cut and color I've had in YEARS. She really listened to what I was hating about my hair - years of highlights had made it one big chunk of blonde and it seemed to keep getting lighter and lighter - Sarah transformed my brassy blonde nightmare into more natural looking highlights with more of my darker natural color woven in. I LOVE IT! The salon is in a great location, and like i said prior; hip but not TOO hip. Very nice people and great products and service. Thanks Sarah!

I've been going to Avalon from the day they opened their doors, and I've never been disappointed. They've done an amazing job of creating an atmosphere that feels comfortable, and not pretentious. Avalon delivers high end quality services at an affordable price. I'm extremely sensitive to what I do with my hair because it's curly. Natalie has always taken the time to recommend products and services that make sense for me.

I have been going to Rosa for over a year. I recommend her to everyone I know. I love to change my style and she is always willing to try whatever I want. She makes sure she is never over booked so I get personal attention every time. When I first went to Rosa I had long hair and wanted to go short. I took in a picture of what I wanted and she did it perfectly. Now that I have been going to her for a while she offers suggestions of what she thinks will look good and she is always right on the money. She is great at highlights as well. Before after about a year I would find a new stylist because my hair would start to bore me and the color would start looking washed out. Not with Rosa, she keeps my highlights looking fresh by know just the right low light color to put in and when. Trust me, once you go to Rosa you will never let anyone else touch your hair! The Avalon staff is also wonderful. The whole experience makes you feel pampered!

Michelle has cut my hair for the last twenty years. Honestly, where ever she is is where I go. Over the years I have traveled sometimes as far as a 5 hour flight. Now that she's at Avalon I think she is truly home. Great friendly staff, professional and well educated in their craft. I've never seen anyone leave without a smile on their face. Here's a tip for the year. GO SEE MICHELLE AT AVALON!!!

My gray was out of control and I have had some bad experiences at other salons. I always wanted to maintain my natural hair color and I would end up getting a completely different hair color then what I wanted. My co-worker recommended I visit her stylist, Natalie at Avalon. When I arrived, Natalie and the staff welcomed me, she then took her time to discuss the cut and color. Not only did Natalie do an excellent job she recommended products that I could use to maintain my "New Look". My husband's and co-workers all commented that I looked like I was in my 20's again. They loved the new look. Thanks Natalie and Avalon for transforming my image.

Everytime I go into Avalon I will only see Natalie. She has transformed my hair from boring to amazing! There were times I did not know what to do with my hair and she would make a suggestion and cut/style away. I have LOVED every style that Natalie envisioned for me! Natalie is very easy to talk to and always smiling. GO SEE NATALIE TODAY!!!

I found Avalon on citysearch (of course!) and called up to make an appt. and spoke with Bill. Super nice and friendly, he was able to book me an appt. with Liz for the following day (awesome!!) and I could not have had a better experience. I have short, curly hair and have had little luck finding a good hairstylist, but since moving here a few weeks ago, I have been asking everyone I know for a recommendation for someone who is good at cutting short hair, butended up resorting to citysearch to find one based on reviews. Ok, so I get lost trying to find the place bc I didn't follow the instructions on mapquest and wanted to try and take a shortcut, so I called the salon and let them know I was lost and would be a few minutes late, but that i thought I was on the right path, so I would just see them shortly. Turns out, Stacy calls me right back and was so thoughtful to ask if I needed directions, and was incredibly helpful and patient while guiding me i the right direction to the salon. I really appreciated that, because I can't recall a time that any salon has been that thoughtful. Seriously. To the important part - the haircut. Liz did a terrific job and I can not tell you how happy I am with it. She is friendly, informative and an amazing hairstylist. I concur with the other reviews about this salon - it is definitely worth checking out. Liz was very thorough when going back over my hair after the initial cut, and made a point of rechecking the cut and made a few more snips before I left the salon. That really made me happy, bc as I said before, I have curly hair, and there is nothing more bothersome, than leaving the salon, only to have to call and make another appt in order to get the few sections that aren't right, fixed. Bottom line - she is thorough and knows what she is doing. Go see her!

This is the best salon I have ever been to. Being military I have lived in 7 different states over the last 12 years, and it is always scary to find a new salon. I tried one salon (Folawns) and had a horrible experience, they were very cold and did such a poor job on my nails, that I was a fraid to get anything else done. While at my sons Orthodontist appointment I noticed a women who had beautiful hair and nails and asked her where she went. She told me Avalon Hair Design and Spa. From the minute I walked in I felt very much at home. Natalie , who is very stylish and just a sweet heart does my hair and I have loved it everyday and go back every 6 weeks for a trim. Nails you need to see Jenny. She is the warmest most sincere person you could hope to meet. Everyone in the salon is wonderful and I wish I had more room to write about how great this salon is, and I will miss it greatly when I have to move again. Thanks Natalie and Jenny for taking such great care of me :)....

I just recently moved back to SA from living in Florida for 4 years and I have struggled trying to find the perfect salon and stylist and I need not look any further! Michelle is the absolute best at Avalon and the staff made sure I was comfortable and situated the moment I walked in the door. They properly greeted me with their warm and welcoming smiles! Michelle has such a bubbly and witty personality and she makes the little time you spend with her memorable! I am half Black/Korean and I my curls are of a distincitve nature and she knew exactly what to do with my hair and she cut it in a style that was so simple and easy yet chic and sassy!! The Salon is very upscale however you don't deal with over priced services or fake and snotty personalities!I LOVE YOU MICHELLE AND THANKS FOR MAKING THIS MAMA TO BE FEEL LIKE A DIVA!

I am new to San Antonio and have been looking for a hair stylist for a while and have been a few places in the last 9 months and have not been impressed at all at any of my experiances until now! My experiance with LIZ (and I do mean LIZ with all caps.) because my high and low lights were FABULOUS, and the cut was the best I have had since i lived in New York and paid triple what i paid here. I HIGHLY recommened LIZ she is very sweet and knows how to work her magic, she made me feel and look like the DIVA i have always wanted to be. My boyfriend was shocked at how a great cut and color can change a woman and how she views herself when she knows she looks good. THANK U so much LIZ for making me LOOK and FEEL FABULOUS. I will see u in 6 weeks.

I have been going to this salon for several years now. I have had many visits to the salon and every time i am there i feel right at home. The stylist i see there is Sarah and she does a fantastic job. She colors my hair every four weeks and i love it!! I would highly recommend Sarah.

I was a new client for a correction of color/ high light technique and brush up of a hair cut on August 14th 2009. It was a mess before I arrived at Avalon but after Tonja got a hold of my hair I walked out looking like a million bucks and not the blonde Ronald McDonald I felt like before she helped me(mind you I'm a natural blonde). First and far most, if your at the losing end of trying to achieve a certain color or style you want and your not getting it any where else after hundreds of dollars spent. Avalon is D-E-F-I-N-I-T-E-L-Y the place to go. I wished I came across them sooner. They have the most friendliest staff and owner. IF your looking for a dedicated professional hair color/stylist I would most definitely recommend you call and make an appointment and request Tonja as your stylist.. She will definitely achieve the look or color your looking for. I was at a losing end of getting what I wanted and thanks to Tonja I now have the color high lights/low lights I desire. I will be a dedicated client to her for now on. She loves what she does and gets into depth with what she's doing. It's like there is nobody in the room besides her and the clients hair till the look is achieved... Thanks Tonja for all your time...dedication....and patients... it's greatly appreciated. As for you all reading these reviews and still deciding... What are you waiting for... Pick up the phone and call now!! I promise you won't be disappointed that you do!! Dedicated customer, KRISTEN B.

I had an appt for Denise for my monthly facial and treatment, I received a call at the last minute that Denise is no longer there and that no one at the salon can do the service she provided. They would not give me any information or where she had gone. So I guess they no longer provide service for facials that they advertise in their brochure or website. I will no longer go to this salon because I felt they should of given me more notice or have someone else that could provide the service they advertise. If anyone knows where Denise went please post it because I have never had such great service, or someone that had the knowledge she had in over 6 years.

My hair was in horrible condition. My daughter recommended I make an appt. wtih Natalie, and I will never leave her! I moved to FL for a year last year, and I came back to SA 3 times to have Natalie do my color and cut. She is the best I've ever found anywhere. I travel all the time with my work, and I have been to salons in Austin, LA and FL. No one is as good as Natalie. She listens to what you want, and she is a true professional. You can count on her to stay on top of new products and trends. If you want something that would be risky for your hair, she will tell you. She will never steer you wrong. I could write about her for hours! Better you find out for yourself; make an appt. today!!

I had been in need of a change. My old hair dresser kept doing the same thing over and over. I finally(after 4 years) decided to try another salon so Avalon it was. I got Tonja. I had read her many reviews and she and I were on the same page right away! I walked out with the look I had been wanting for so long! Great color and cut. The salon is nice and very accomadating. I rebooked and are telling all my friends about Tonja!

I searched the internet for a salon and found Avalon. I am so happy with my hair! Tonja took the time to talk with me and make me feel comfortable. I got exactly what I wanted! She is great and the salon feels like home. Everyone is so friendly!

I had my hair done by Natalie and she did an excellent job. I was impressed by her skills. My highlights came out very nice and natural looking. I like very thin highlights that look natural and Natalie gave me just that. The salon is clean and low-key and the shampoo chairs are super comfy. I would recommend this salon.

I have been going to Avalon for over 5 years now and never have been disappointed, Natalie has done Keratin smoothing and Highlights on my hair and it looks Silky Smooth with Beautiful Highlights. I get so many compliments at work. I send all my friends there too. Won't go anywhere else. Thanks for the great service!
