I had my service provided by Caitlyn. It was wonderful. We had a great consultation. I showed her photos of the hair style I wanted and she gave me the cutest cut. I went from very long - and boring -hair to a very chic pixie cut. Caitlyn listened to my desires and was able to work with my hair to achieve a very beautiful end result. It doesn't look like the other photos, but my hair takes on a new life when short, and I LOVE the look.
And because I had so much of a good thing, Caitlyn asked if I was willinging to donate my hair charity that provides FREE wigs to children in need. I was happy to, in memory of my darling daughter-in-law, who passed away from Hodgkin's Lymphoma two years ago. She would have been very pleased.
And I had another very pleasant surprise at the end of my appointment. The cost of service was so much LESS than I was expecting. I had patronized another upscale salon in Grand Rapids for two years and never walked out for less than $200.00.
Avante Garde is a clean, friendly salon with friendly, knowledgeable staff and professionals with mad skills.
