horrible and disgusting – I recently had my hair cut and colored at avante and boy,do I regret that decision.I was under the impression that this was a high end salon and I went there because the price was a little cheaper than the top hair salon in the area (where I couldn't get an appointment right away). This place ruined my hair.I had long naturally brown hair and always lighten it to a dark blonde with highlights.I left with a shoulder length blunt cut with visibly striped,uneven,tacky highlights and fuzzy (burnt off) ends. I literaaly will have to wear my hair up in a hat this weekend and hope it doesn't fall off when I wash it. I'm considering a lawsuit.don't believe the other reviews.none of these girls know what they're doing including the owner
TERRIBLE!!! STAY AWAY!! – New to the area from NYC, I chose this salon based on the reviews on this site. However, my hair was BUTCHERED!!! I was in such shock, but managed to communicate that I was dissatisfied, and the owner gave me an ATTITUDE instead of apologizing. AND they had the nerve to charge me. I wish I had done some more research. Whatever you do, DO NOT GO TO THIS SALON! Unless you want a crappy unflattering cheap looking hair cut and a dose of nastiness.
Best salon in Kingston NY – The first thing I noticed was how welcome everyone made me feel from the minute I walked in. But I can't say enough about Christine, my stylist. She took the time to listen to what I wanted and for the first time in my life, I walked out of a salon absolutely loving my hair.
Thank you, Christine. See you in six weeks!
talented stylist – i have never found someone who can cut my hair. i like it short but its really curly and no one can ever make it look "cool"....except for christine at avante. each time she cuts it she puts a new lil twist on it to make it more fun and funky but still feminine. she does a great job and i wont go anywhere else! shes got a amazing talent...check her out!
beautiful haircut – Avante, downtown Kingston.

Went for a trim with Kelly, had a fabulous time but more importantly got the BEST haircut!! She said she gave me Victoria Secret SEXY hair! It was awesome! Kelly is a very talented stylist, she knows the latest trends and is on point. Kelly also gave me my first set of highlights. She showed me pics of all the hottest in Hollywood and what trends they were sporting. Honestly my hair looked better than Beyonce when she finished. Looks SO natural, I constanlty get complimetns on the look. I'm really not crazy about taking time to tell strangers what I think about anything, but its such a relief as a "thirty-something" year old woman to know that I can finally stop searching for MY VERY OWN HAIR STYLIST!!! Hadn't been to Avante in a while, loved Alicia the owner when I first met her. The salon has clearly grown and has a great modern vibe. I will forever be loyal to Kelly at Avante!
The only place I'll ever go! – After struggling to find a person to layer and color my hair exactly the way I want it, I was overwhelmed with joy at the finished product of my haircut with Kelly at Avante. Looking back I can't believe I ever went anywhere else. Kelly had all the new hair coloring and cutting trends. I would recommend this salon to anybody.
Great Place – Christine Gagnon does a great job on my hair always. This is the only place I have ever gone where they actually massage your scalp while washing your hair. Chrisitne spends quality time on my hair and it always looks great.
great business – avante is a beautiful salon and i am so greatful for finally finding a place that does great work. christine did a wonderful job on my color and cut...and i will definately be back to see her.
Have Kelly cut your hair! – Kelly has a wonderful caring quality.. she is beautiful in every way.
Her haircuts are thoughtful to your request yet are creative and professional. Designed to enhance and accentuate what you have.
Her consultation is EZ to interpret and apply.
Make your next beauty appointment with Kelly!
Very Happy – Kayla does terrific cuts using the razor method. My hair falls very nicely with the cut. She spends time evaluating before she starts.
