I had the pleasure of my first visit at Avessa Salon in Barrington. Upon entering, I was immediately greeted by all three working stylists. I observed a modern front desk with well known product tastefully displaced, bright sunshine entering from the windows, manicure/pedicure stations and a sleek hair styling area for clients. The vibe was warm, friendly, relaxed and not stuffy. As a first time client, I was given a consultation on what my hair desires were and a professional opinion on how to reach my goal. There was no gossiping but pleasant interaction between the staff and obvious regulars, but all were sure to include myself in the light conversations. Everyone struck me as incredibly professional. I was quite happy with my experience, and even more, I AM thrilled with my hair! Thank you to Ellen and the rest of the staff for giving me a much needed bounce in my step and taking the time to make me feel beautiful. I can't wait for my next visit.
Response to gralule – On the website at every price is " & up" and the phrase "prices are subject to change". This allows adjustment if need be. One Daughter had several colors in her hair from bleaching at home as she disclosed to the stylist. This made it a corrective color and therefore changed the price as she was informed. On completion of her service she expressed she loved it and thanked her stylist. Avessa is designed entirely of oak, granite, is impeccably clean and the florescent lighting; each bulb is a soft hue bulb designed best lighting. Every phone call is answered unless we are closed. A Flat screen TV and a Bose sound system is for clients to listen to or watch what they wish. A menu is posted at the entrance for all clients to view. As beauty professionals, none of us would have offensive body odor and our central air is set at a comfortable 68 degrees. No tip would EVER be demanded, and the 3 individuals were given free manicure gift certificates to thank them for patronage; they did come back and use them. It is a shame that some individuals do not have a tactful way to express themselves and the correct spelling is
HORRIBLE!!!!!!! – Any positive reviews of this salon must have been written by the staff. We are new to the area and I decided to give this salon a try with my two teenage daughters. I checked their website before going and teenagers and adults had different prices. We arrived and were met with florescent lighting, an empty salon and rude staff.
No prices were listed anywhere which made me slightly nervous. We got two hair cuts and one root dye. We also got our eyebrows done. The staff never answered the phone when it rang which was often. One had horrible body odor and the three staff women never stopped gossiping amongst themselves. They never even offered us a glass of water. No music, Just their favorite court TV we were forced to watch.
I was charged $215 and they demanded a tip. I thought I possibly made a mistake on pricing when I checked their website and I didn't want to make a seen in front of my girls. I should have. I hadn't made a mistake. They over charged me about $75.
I called the salon several times, left messages, nothing. I finally reached one women who promised the owner would call me. She never did. They are literally thieves. Please be careful if you decide to go .Buyer beware. Lesson learned.
Top Notch Full Service Salon. – I have had the pleasure of being a client of Avessa Salon for over 8 years. The products and services they offer are always cutting edge and they have THE BEST Brazilian Hair Straightening treatment on the market. If you are sick of your frizzy hair...you will find this a miracle treatment that will last for several months and is priced the best in East Bay. Ellen and her staff do an outstanding job and offer everything and more that you would expect in a salon. As an expert colorist, Ellen will make your hair look and feel fantastic. If you care about how you look, you should give Avessa a call. You won't be disappointed.
Would definitely recommend – I love my Gel Polish manicures from Avessa Salon. Mine consistently lasts for two weeks, no chipping, no peeling. Its great. The salon is beautiful, the customer service is exceptional. The owner, Ellen, treats every customer like family. I don't know how she does it, but I'm glad she does. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Oh, and if you need waxing Ellen does an outstanding job. Anyone that can take the pain of of that experience deserves high praise. Highly recommend!
Exceptional Service at Avessa Salon in Barrington – I just came from Avessa Salon in Barrington where I had my usual Gel polish/French manicure. The consistancy of professionalism and accomodation that they provide is unparralelled, not to mention the consistantly beautiful work. Ellen, the owner, is a true artist, as are the rest of the staff. Wouldn't go anywhere else. Give them a call...you'll love them too!
Great time saving experience – This salon was recommended to me as an alternative to my regular long afternoon barber shop visits. I stopped in for a hair cut and was greeted by the owner (Ellen). She assured me that my service could be fit in between her previously scheduled appointments without any disruption or appointment necessary. I was washed, cut and styled in less than twelve minutes and on my way. Thank you Ellen, for the exceptional service and I will be calling for my next appt. soon.
Excellent Salon – I have been a loyal client of Avessa Salon and Day Spa for 3 1/2 years. There are so many aspects that are positive, but it is the consistency of professionalism and talent that stands out. I have taken advantage of numerous services; cut and color of my hair, manicures, pedicures and facials. Every service is delivered expertly.
Do not hesitate. Book an appointment now!
Great Place – I love going to Avessa and have been doing so for over 5 years. I came to find the salon after a stylist at Christaan's nearly ruined my hair. I called the salon and the owner, Ellen, was gracious enough to fit me in immediately to help with my hair emergency. It is a beautiful salon, great location and friendly staff that are enjoyable to be around. The salon has a lot to offer and I can't imagine going anywhere else!
Great staff, great service and good prices – I've been a customer for about 5 years and wouldn't go anywhere else. The service is professional and friendly. The staff is very knowledgeable and outgoing and the owner Ellen will "fit" you in even on her busiest day. What more could you ask for?
