Lissette Abreu the Specialist in Hair Color & hair cuts – I was in need of someone to cut and color my hair as my regular hairdresser moved back to her home town and by luck, while walking through the village, I came across Avalon Salon and they recommended Lissette Abreu - they said she is the best in what she does. Hair coloring is surely her specialty. Well, they weren't lying! My hair looks FABULOUS, and I left Avalon extremely happy and from that day on (! year later) I'm still going to her. I recommend her to anyone.
Disappointed – I recently moved to the city and was in search of a reputable salon to get my Brazilian wax. A long time subscriber to Allure magazine, I discovered Avalon through one of their raving reviews. I went online, saw more great reviews and decided to check it out.
The wax took no time at all and was virtually painless. The techician told me to apply neosporin to a few "sensitive" areas around my labia and sent me on my way, minus $65.00. The REAL pain began a few hours later. By the time I got home, I could barely move. My boyfriend examined the sensitive areas and realized that my skin was actually ripped off.. OUCH!!! I had bumps for about six days and major irritation. I had to use a lot of Gold Bond powder just to walk around. The majority of my hair had grown back within two weeks. I've never experienced such fast regrowth before. Needless to say, I'm in desperate search of another salon and will not be returning to Avalon.
great massage – Just returned from my first massage at Avalon on Christopher St. The best massage I've ever had. The masseur's name was Jesse. The owner, Russell, runs a clean and attractive business. Highly recommended.
Amazing Blowout by Anthony! – I owe big thanks to Anthony at Avalon for giving me what might just have been the best blowout of my life on Saturday afternoon. While I’ve been visiting Avalon for 8+ years for regular cuts and have always been happy, I booked a semi last-minute appointment for a blowout prior to a Saturday night event. My regular stylist doesn’t work Saturdays, so I let the salon suggest whoever they thought might do well with my long, thick hair. Anthony surpassed all expectations, and the final product was sleek but had body and the perfect curl at the base all at the same time. Most amazing? It’s Monday afternoon, I’ve slept on this blowout 2 nights now, and my hair still looks PERFECT. This is my first online review, but I was so happy with my hair and received SO many compliments, that I couldn’t resist sharing my positive experience. Thank you, Anthony!
Wonderful Village Salon – I have been coming to Avalon Salon, specifically Ricky, for hair cut and color for years. It's a lovely, clean and professional establishment. Everyone from the receptionists to the hair washers are friendly and personable, there is no pretension or elitist behavior.
The prices for all services and products are reasonable and well worth the experience.
I have only had hair cuts/color at the salon, but I have seen Ricky specifically for years. Not only is he friendly and easy to talk to, but he always gives me a great cut and I feel like a million bucks every time. He's very familiar with how I like to cut/style my hair. He never pushes me to try something crazy, but if he has an opinion about what should be done, he gives it, and I always take it and never regret it.
Even if I go months without getting a cut, Ricky always greets me with a smile and knows what I need to get cleaned up. I'll be a loyal customer of this establishment for years to come.
Jacob is who you want to see !!!!! – Got my highlighs and cut from jacob before my engagement party , im extremely picky with my hair but he tok his time ging step by step and the end result was amazing . Aside from him , the prices aren't that high for the work and decor of the place . I would reccomend this place to anyone who is picky about their hair
thak you jake !!
Great Wax by Liz – I had a TERRIBLE experience at a spa on the east side when I first moved to NYC last year. I was petrified of trying to find a new one and spent 6 months going back to my regular in Washington, DC for my monthly waxes.
I saw the reviews for Avalon and finally thought I'd give it a shot (especially because I was sick of not having a place in New York). I was looking for something clean, nice, affordable, and that wouldn't hurt too badly!
Liz is awesome. I've been going to her for almost a year now and she's quick, nice, whatever she does - it barely hurts. I've tried someone else at Avalon (I won't mention the name), but I didn't like her at all. Liz only works on weekdays, but it's worth missing work to go see her!
DO NOT GO THERE – I did not have a good experience with this “Spa”. I wanted to get a massage and when I got there they gave me a male masseur, when I asked to have a female masseur they couldn’t accommodate me. The manager was very RUDE. I lost my massage because I wasn’t comfortable with a male masseur and they wouldn’t give me a different appointment. When calling the spa they should ask if you for a preference. They did offer me another service in the salon, but I rather loose my money then go back and be rude to by the manager.
Brian is where it's at! – I had my color screwed up by another salon and Brian saved the day!! He transformed my hair into a thing of beauty. no longer will I scare little children. the salon itself looks smaller than it really is, it's a full spa. have not tried any other services yet but will be soon! Ask for Brian, he really knows what he's doing!
Specialist in Hair Color – I've going to Avalon for 4 years now. I have been always looking for a place that uses quality products, specially the ones I have tried and learned to love, and this is it.
I've been going to BRIAN for color, and lately for cuts, and he is just great! he understands what your hair needs just by looking at it and touching it. OF course you explain what you want and it is interpreted right, which to me is everything. I have wavy hair, lot's of it! and I'm a wash and go kind of girl, and Brian knows how to keep it that way. . People ask me "who does your hair"?! This is awesome for someone that doesn't style it at all !
