Cannot believe the number of good reviews here – Wow, read all the great reviews online and figured I'd get a haircut there while in town. Got way too much attitude and no skill. Zero ability to understand the client needs.
After reading all reviews on other web resources carefully, can only conclude that all these were written by Michael and his friends. Listen to my advice: if you are young and want attention and a good pair of hand to take care of your hair, do not go there. Try elsewhere.
Michelle Rocks! – I first started to go to Michelle a few ago after seeing a friend in my graduate class walk with AWESOME hair. She had bright red hair with the bright blonde highlights. Every hair dresser I had gone to said a look like that was hard to pull off and would not attempt it on me. So I called Michelle and I have been with her ever since. In fact, most of my family now gets their hair done by her too. She is friendly and always turns out great product.
Michelle is not the only talent at Micheal Avery Studio though. Every client that I see that walks out of their looks like a million dollars. I have never come across an unhappy face. Everyone is very welcoming and it is a nice to visit with all of them on a Saturday while getting your hair done.
Get your hair done here – I started getting my haircut by Michelle a few years ago and have followed her over to the Michael Avery Salon. Michelle is an excellent stylist. She is one of the nicest, warmest people I know. She helps me decided on the right hair cut and color, listening to my ideas and offering suggestions. She spends the time showing me how to style my hair on my own and gives me excellent suggestions for products (that really work!). The salon is very attractive and welcoming. I really enjoy the fancy coffee maker! This is a great place to go. Michelle is wonderful. The rest of the gentlemen working at the salon are all very friendly, too. I would recommend this salon to anyone.
Wonderful Experience at Michael Avery Salon! – As soon as I walked in I felt so comfortable and relaxed. The design of the studio is unique and very nice. I had Phillip and he was wonderful. Not too talkative and very friendly. The day before I got my hair done I brushed on the dreads in my hair and it was absolutely disgusting looking. Phillip completely fixed my hair. Great salon!
Great atmosphere! – When I had my hair cut with Michelle I loved it so much I went ahead and made my next appoint ment for some highlights. She really helped me decide on shades that complimented my natural color and skin tone. This is the look I've always wanted! Just wanted to share how happy I am with my hair and new hairdresser!
Great cut and color! – I had an appointment with Philip for a cut and color. He did the color first then a dry cut and it was fantastic. I told him what I had in mind, which was my natural color but a little warmer, and he got it exactly right. He made absolutely sure I was comfortable and that I liked everything he was doing. He also explained everything he did, and he gave me tons of tips for how to style my own hair - even some things I'd never heard. I felt like I should be taking notes!
My experience at Michael Avery Salon was fantastic, and I will definitely be returning! Thanks, Philip!
Best salon experience by far! – I was recently a first time customer at the Michael Avery Co. Salon. Because I am a some-what trained cosmetologist, I usually do my hair myself. I was looking for a salon that could help me find a new look while finding a style that could hide the appearance of my over-processed locks. I've gone to Shear Ego... the style was rough, the cost was nearly sickening, and the stylist....well, a beginner. I googled Rochester NY salons and saw the reviews for Michael Avery Co...I picked up my cell and made an appointment with David. He was awesome! He picked out a daring purple-like colour swatch and away he went with my lowlights. The outcome was wonderful! He fixed my "close to a mullet" hair cut I had received from Shear Ego and sent me on my way with the softest, most manageable hair I've had yet! Thanks so much!
David at Michael Avery salon is a wonderful hairdresser. He was welcoming and accommodating. He listened to everything I wanted and did his best job. I will be back.
I have such a hard time finding a hairdresser that I click with, and I have finally found one.
I'm in Love! – Okay, I usually only write reviews for something particularly exceptional. This is IT.
I have gotten my haircut for two to three times more money at salons in cities across the nation and I have never been more happy with the ENTIRE experience than at Michael Avery and Co - every detail is impeccable. I read the great reviews and tried it out and I have to say I feel so lucky to have found this place!
The location is in a great neighborhood, parking is easy, and the building is beautiful and easy to find. As for the inside the salon, comfort is the main theme. The music is enjoyable, the decor is sophisticated, and it always smells great. Unlike other salons, I really enjoy that the ambiance is friendly, personal, and not pretentious. Also the complimentary coffee is a great touch (sometimes, if I can, I arrive early just to sip coffee, curl up on the couch to read a magazine, and just relax).
Sorry for using so many list of adjectives, but seriously, I can't help it because this place is so great!
I've had my hair styled here many times now and I always leave feeling fantastic. As for my stylist, Michael, he is definitely passionate about hair and willing to listen. I recommend him to anyone who asks! What I like best is the whole comfort theme is extended through Michael's personality - he always makes sure that I like what he does. Whether for just a trim or radical style change, Michael talks with me about what I want, gives suggestions if I'm unsure, and tells me the best way to maintain the style at home. And if I don't like it? he tells me to "bring it back," and he'll fix it!
Beautiful Salon & Talented Artist – I just returned from living abroad for a year in Switzerland. While I was there, I fell in love with many things, but first and foremost, I fell in love with my stylist in Zurich. She was amazing--the best haircut I had ever had (and the most expensive).
After I moved back, I was very worried that I would not be able to find the same talent in the U.S. I toyed with the idea of getting some recommendations in New York City and traveling there for my haircuts. Then I finally decided to try Michael Avery. The reviews I had heard were wonderful.
He did a fabulous job--on par with my Zurich stylist. My hair looks great, really great. His salon is stunning. A wonderful place to escape from the real world. I am so happy to have found this gem and can't wait to return.
