Spas >Avalon Hair Design & Spa
I HIGHLY recommend RACHEL at this wonderful Salon! I recently moved to SA from a big city and was nervous about finding a new stylist that was good with color. I read her impressive BIO online and decided to go to her. She is absolutely AMAZING! Rachel is extremely friendly and very professional. She spent hours making my hair color PERFECT and gave me an awesome cut and free hair glaze as well!!! I have never been so happy with a hair stylist. Needless to say, GO TO RACHEL for awesome hair!!!! :):)
I recommend Denise a million times
over. What she did to my hair was AMAZING! I get soo many compliments on my hair at least several times a day! I won't see anyone else!
The salon over all, was wonderfull!! All the staff there is soo nice! I recommend Avalon hair salon to anyone and everyone!
5 stars for sure!
Denise did a fantastic job on my hair!.
Denise did a fantastic job on my hair! I normally do not write reviews- but Denise is well worth a 5 star rating. I have really long, black, and healthy hair so I'm extremely protective and sensitive about who touches or cuts it. For one, I research and I take all reviews into consideration- which is how I chose Avalon. I've been searching for a couple of days and Avalon's ratings were one of the best in San Antonio. So I called and booking an appointment was convenient, easy, and flexible.
So what's important to me? The PRICE and a GOOD HAIRCUT. The reasons why I gave Denise the rating I did is for the following reasons:
1. My face is round and I like my hair long! Round faces are so hard to work with because a bad hair cut will make a round face look fat or chubby! But, while the person getting the haircut has the say, the person with the scissors unfortunately has the power to make you look fabulous or like you let a 7 year old cut your hair.
My hair is LONG! I told Denise- I like my hair long, but that I'm open to any haircut that will flatter the shape of my face. You see, just because a salon such as Avalon has good ratings does not mean that ALL their stylists are great. The salon has to show you what they got with WHO they got. So I gave Denise the benefit of a doubt and she gave me her opinion. She showed me how much she will cut and WHERE the tips of my hair would end. She stayed true to her intention. Needless to say, even before she began straightening my hair and after she blow dried and cut it- I was impressed. I'm rarely satisfied with my haircuts, but with Denise I was both satisfied and impressed. So she represented the Salon well and in my eyes their 5 star ratings are legitimate.
2. She is so energetic! She smiles, laughs, and she's funny! A happy go lucky kind of woman. I'm big on first impressions, Denise definitely gave me a positive and respectable one.
As for Avalon the salon itself, I walked in not knowing the prices. However, the PRICE was reasonable and quite the deal for a good haircut. I normally pay $65 dollars for what ends up to be a substandard haircut- but Avalon starts at $39. I paid $39 for a shampoo, haircut, and style/blow dry (that's excluding tip) for an ABOVE STANDARD haircut.
All in all, I recommend Denise!
I recently went to Avalon Salon and got a highlight and haircut by Deanna. My hair turned out so well, the color is amazing and the cut is great. My hair has shape and life again. She even called me a few days later to make sure I was still completely satisfied with me hair. I will definitley be going back. Thanks :)
DON'T USE DENISE!!!!!!!!!!. I HAVE ALWAYS HAD LONG HAIR BUT THIN AND FINE. I WAS VISITING IN SA AND HEARD ABOUT THIS SALON, SO I DECIDED TO TRY IT. I ASKED DENISE NOT TO CUT MY HAIR ABOVE MY SHOULDERS. SHE KEPT GIGGLING, TALKING, AND CUTTING. THE MORE SHE TALKED THE SHORTER MY HAIR BECAME. MY HAIR IS SHORTER THAN MY HUSBANDS. HE HAS KNOW NICKNAMED ME "BUTCH". I PAID HER AND LEFT. IT IS SO SHORT I CAN'T EVEN USE THE SMALLEST ROLL BRUSH. I WILL NEVER RETURN TO THE SALON AND WILL NOT RECOMMEND DENISE TO ANYONE.
Bea is the best. I went to Bea a few weeks ago to get a haircut and after going to many salon here in San Antonio I have found the one!!! She is awsome and a great person to talk to as well. She really understand hair texture and what cuts suit what kind of hair. I am goin back and am excited as ever!! Thanks Bea!
The rumors are true...Bea is the best!. Bea is an excellent stylist. She always does a great job with my cut and my highlights. She LISTENS to me and then actually does what I ask, unlike stylists I've encountered at other salons; yet at the same time, she keeps me in check and doesn't let me do anything I'd regret. She's also very easy to talk to and makes me feel very comfortable. She has never pressured me to purchase products or other services from the salon. Everyone is very friendly too. I highly recommend Bea and Avalon.
Beautiful San Antonio Avalon Spa. I had my roots touched up and color toned and got lots of gorgeous highlight then cut and blew it out in a sexy style. It has bounce and body and looks amazing. Being a redhed its hard to play with color however Denise did a fabulous job at the Avalon Hair Design & Spa off Stoneoak and it was very reasonabley priced. Denise matched my roots perfectly even as the color was not from Paul Mitchel, and I have already had 37 compliments on my hair and it has only been a week. She was attentive to my needs asking if water temperature was good and offering me a magazine and something to drink and Denise of Avalon checked the color often to ensure it reached the perfect color. Denise gave me personal attention and made me feel important as a customer not rushing to start on another customer simultaniously as some places do. I recommend going to see Denise at Avalon on Huebner she is gorgeous herself and made my hair look fabulous. I have been to stlylist at other salons who dont look great themselves so how could they make you look good. The salon is highly attractive and astesticlly pleasing and spacious and all the stylists are beautiful. I was very pleased with Avalon and Denise and would definetly recommend going there and guarentee you will be pleased with the color and the cut. I have referred freinds and strangers who absolutely love my cut and style and wanted to go and get their hair cut by Denise
She does wonderful work! Thanks Bea. Bea low lighted it and highlighted my hair then cut it. When she was finished I hadn't realized how much better and healthier this would make my hair look. I am so very pleased and it feels so good to have a great cut and color!!. She did such a great job! She is truly an Artist.
Kourtney is the best!.
I am incredibly picky when it comes to my hair; I just don't let anyone touch my hair, but with kourtney she does an amazing job each and every time I go to her no matter what I want her to do to it. Whether its a simple hair and bang trim, highlights, to coloring just the tip of my ends she takes excellent care of my hair! I moved to San Antonio 3 yrs ago and I haven't gone to anyone else other than kourtney! She's the best, no reason to go anywhere else!!
I highly reccomend kourtney to everyone especially if you have mixed hair!!
