Frank Gruber opened the doors to his first salon, The Klip Joint in 1978. After many years of working behind the chair and becoming a successful owner he decided it was time to try a new venture. This is where his dream came alive and Avanté was born. Avanté Salon was created in 1991 for the purpose of offering more salon services to clients at a higher professional level. In 1998 he expanded the salon and changed the name to Avanté Salon and Spa. He added spa services to keep up with this rapidly growing industry. By 2004, he expanded yet again to accommodate his clients and employees. While he enjoyed watching his salon, staff and client base grow he quickly decided it was time to start anew. In 2007, he partnered with one of his stylists, Frank Clamer, and together they opened Avanté on Main Street. This new salon was yet another expansion to create a soothing atmosphere for clients to enjoy the treatment. In 2013, he realized it was time to unite his salons. This is when Avanté on High Street and The Men’s Loft at Avanté came to be. It must be said that Frank has definitely stood by the definition of Avanté; to move forward culturally and stylistically. “The Avanté goal is to be the most sought out salon for innovative skill and client appreciation. We have our clients to thank for our continued growth and success and their patronage is the utmost importance to us. Avanté has established salon wide goals and values to support the service and quality the clients have come to expect.” -Frank Gruber

Casey did a great job with my hair. Love it!

Brooke provides an excellent service and ensures a pleasant experience.


Another personal, heart felt experience!

Excellent, as always

I love going to my hair appts, not only because the styles and colors match my preferences (i.e. Results are spot on), but also because I can strike up great convos with the staff. Friendly, warm and engaging environment. Shout out to Steph! :)

Grade A and gold star as usual.

I love having Jenny wax my eyebrows. She also trims my nose hair and does a quick neck massage at the end. She's the best!

Holly is terrific.

My thanks to my stylist, Kathleen, for my recent visit! We tried a different cut and it looks great! She just KNOWS!

i am very picky when it comes to my brow maintenance and Hailey does an amazing job. she is very professional, friendly, and talented. most importantly, her work is consistent. im always pleased with how my brows look after she has waxed and trimmed them.

Rebecca did a wonderful job on my color and cut :)

Great job!

Kat M is a wonderful massage therapist. I look forward to my session with her. So relaxed when I left!

Exceptional stylist!

Jody always gives me a beautiful cut. I love getting compliments on my hair. Good job Jody!

Always a pleasant experience, everyone is extremely nice & thoughtful to your needs. Doug & Jenny are, of course, my favorites

Love my new doo! Jen , you always get it right.

Lauren does such a great job with my hair. I come back month after month.

Michelle Tigue is just the best! She always knows what the best cut and color is for her clients just love it I walked out looking amazing

Lauren is always up for trying something different with my hair. I can always trust her to had her own flair to what I want and it is always flattering. Thanks for a great lying! P

Shawn is professional and attentive to what I want in a hair style, and is warm and friendly. I've found my new stylist in Shawn at Avante.

Have been getting my hair cut and colored at Avante for close to a year now ...I am so grateful to have found someone who LISTENS and also is able to cut my hair the way I ask her to ! She is incredibly patient w me and always kind and encouraging ! I have gotten more complements on my hair since I've started coming to Avante - a great cut is the perfect advertisement! You're the best , LESLIE !!!

Lindsey was out sick, I couldn't come in on Monday so Mackenzie was available and she did a great job.

Doug has been a wonderful stylist. He's knowledgeable, up-to-date, and fun. I can always expect great suggestions from him for what to do next with my hairdo. I'm so glad I found him years ago. I also enjoy the banter; we get each other on a roll. It's always a pleasure coming in for my next appointment. Suzanne Smith

Eyebrow waxing

It is so nice to have someone who takes a real interest in a look that works for the individual client. Thanks so much for taking the time to really give my hair the deluxe treatment.

Thank you Kara for your outstanding services. My hair cut and style are perfect. I will see you in 21 days. Sincerely, C Wood

As always I am very happy with my color and haircut from Jen Wolf!

It is always a pleasure!

Greatest stylist!!

To date my experience with Avante has been fantastic. Deirdre is not only an amazing hair stylist but also funny & sincere.

Excellent, as always

As usual everything was great!

I have been going to Kathleen for over 5 years! Love her, never a disappointment!! I will always recommend her to everyone I know.

Shawn did a fabulous job. Johanna did a marvelous mani-pedi. Sue is always great. Thanks so much.

Been going to Sue for years. Waxing is nearly painless. ? U Sue!p

Love how Rebecca did my hair!! The blonde she did is the perfect shade to match my natural blonde streak!

I've been seeing Shawn consistently for the past 18 months or so, and she never seems to disappoint me. I'm always impressed with the fact that I can show her a picture of a style or color that I like and she ends up being able to recreate it. I recently came in to color my hair with highlights (balayage) -- for the first time in years -- and she nailed the color perfectly. I can't recommend her enough! She's sweet, attentive, and always makes sure I'm happy with the finished product.

I had a great experience with Shawn! She was great and really helpful!

I was referred to Breanna from another stylist who had relocated. Im so glad to work with her. She does an amazing job, has a great style and can make recommendation that will suit you individually.

Beautiful! Thanks Brooke!

Thanks to Doug, my hair has great color and cut for starting 2017!

It's always a pleasure to visit Avante & see Jenny & Doug. Everyone is always so welcoming & attentive. I have been & will continue to be a client for many years.

Excellent technician......she listens to what her customer is wanting to do and helps guide to the best decision on haircut, color, etc. We've been together almost 17 years now and I always walk away feeling great!!! I would recommend Dierdre in a heartbeat.....both for professionalism and friendship.

Doug always does an outstanding job.

Jody knows me better than I do! I always leave smiling!

Everything was great, I got a beautiful haircut as usual! Diane, my hair washer was also wonderful!

Shelly is the best! Love Avante!

Jody always knows what my hair style needs in each 3week period She keeps everything balanced (volume, shine,etc) without my having to ask . Julia took time to add my gift certificates to the West Chester account from Exton where they were purchased. My family purchase at Exton because it is much easier. I prefer to not have to carry around those large certificates btw. appointments. Extra service noticed and appreciated by both Jody and Julia

I really like my cut and color. Great job! Thanks Alaina!

Lindsey, as always, made me look and feel great! Thanks Lindsey! Love the rest of the staff too

It's always relaxing having Jody wash my hair and give my head a message. She gave me a great hair cut.

I have been an Avante client for 18 years. Yesterday, my stylist was ill and she made arrangements for my full service: color, cut and Cezanne with 2 different stylists. I am really grateful, as I plan my appointments to coincide with life events! My thanks to Kathleen, Deidre and Holly for a wonderful experience! Avante can be proud of their stylists and their customer service! They stand behind their brand.

Kara is talented. professional and fun!

Going to Avante is a treat. Leslie is the best. Honest, thoughtful, kind, and very skilled.

I love getting my hair cut and colored. Steph and Kathleen are so talented and beyond that- they are authentic and care about you as a person. I always have great conversations and experiences there and they do outstanding work!!

Brooke did a great job getting me ready for the holidays.

Stephanie is a wonderful stylist. I showed her a picture on Pinterest and she cut my hair to match it. She is the only stylist who had been able to put red in my blond hair. I will definitely return.

Excellent, as always. Nothing more to be desired.

I have been going to Avante for a few years now, simply because Stephanie Myers-Langford works there and is an amazing stylist. I trust her to do whatever she wants with my hair and she NEVER disappoints and continues to do a spectacular job each and every time I come to get my hair done. Thanks again Steph for another job well done! :)

I love Avante! I've been coming here to get my hair colored for a year now and I've always received excellent service. Shawn is the best hairstylist and she made me feel at ease and like her only client. Would give this salon a 10 star rating if I could.

It was great!!!

Thank you for the thoughtful gift card. As always staff and front desk are both polite and professional Lucille Garland

Loved it! Awesome job!

what else can I say, perfect

Great cut and color. Looking good for the holiday festivities. Thanks Jody!

always exceptional service

Rebecca did a great job with my color!!!

Very professional, upbeat and positive. Massage was wonderful. I scheduled another massage before I left.

Am always happy to have Holly take care of my needs. She listens and is very skilled.

Excellent, as always!

I have been a client for many many years now at Avante. Its a 35 minute plus drive for me but i wouldnt go anywhere else. Doug is like a family member to me and I look forward to my monthly appointment. Going grey in your early 30s stinks but I always feel so good after my color and cut.

I really love the atmosphere at Avant'e and Jennifer wolf always does a wonderful job with my hair!!

Since I moved 1 1/2 years ago I've been going to Avante salon on Downingtown Pike. I see Jen B. and each time I have had a great experience. I am so glad I was given the recommendation to go there.

Michelle's experience and professional skill make my appointment a trip I look forward to. She makes my hair look amazing.

Always a pleasure to visit Avante and get my pedicure. Everyone is very nice there.


Breanna is always a joy to be around. My hair looks amazing!!

Luisa was as wonderful as ever!! My face is oh so soft

Brooke took extra care with my bunion. Felt so much better and the nail color was so cheery.

I have been a customer of Avante for over 15 years!! Everyone there is always friendly and welcoming. Doug, however, is the best!! He knows just what do even before I do.. Thank you Avante! Thank you Doug!!

I love my stylist - Katy Kirlin!!

Great service and friendly environment.

Great service and friendly environment.

Shawn did a great job. Thanks

Outstanding, very pleased.

Wonderful experience. Will recommend to friends.

I have been going to Kathleen for years and she is always consistent!! Love her!!

He keeps my "old hair" looking young again......:)

I have been serviced by Deirdre for years and she is THE ABSOLUTE BEST! Excellent cuts, fabulous personality and extremely dedicated. Avante treats people with courtesy and professionalism. Highly recommended.

Lindsey makes my appointment so personal and fun. Always the best color and cut. Peggy Fisher

I never leave disappointed! Shawn listens to everything I want for my cut and color and always exceeds my expectations! The staff is always very welcoming and friendly, and greet you as soon as you walk in the door. Love the salon, service and atmosphere. Shawn is the best!

As usual, Lindsey provided an amazing haircut experience ;) Damn, I'm lookin' good! ha!

As always i had a relaxing and pleasing experience. the cut / style turned out better than i could have hoped, as always. Holly is the Best !

I love Avante and have had Alaina doing my hair for what feels like forever now! I completely trust her and I always love the way my hair looks and feels. I am so very thankful for Alaina and Avante!

Love Kara and love how she does my hair!

I had a great appointment with Deirdre. I love my cut/color. I also got my eye brows waxed by Jenny and was happy with the results.

Jody is always patient with me and my hair needs.

Thank you, Stephanie. Love my new haircut, and I look so much younger.

Thanks Lauren, I feel like I look ten years younger!

Doug is the best. He always does an excellent job

Always a relaxing experience. I know my hair will look great when she is done. I get compliments on cut & color from strangers & friends I give Jody all the credit because she works wonders with hair that is poker straight & a client with no hairstyling ability. Will never leave this woman

beautiful job thanks Johanna!

Love Aubree and her ability to work with my hair color and texture.

I always love coming to Avante. My stylist Jenn Wolf is always so upbeat and takes such good care of me. She really takes time to listen to my questions about my hair and make any changes I ask for.

My quality experience with Jody and Avante never disappoints!

My experience at Avante is always first class - from the receptionists, other staff and especially Doug!! He is the best

Denise is wonderful. She delivers great care when giving a massage!


The service I received from Holly, as usual, is very good.

Excellent as always!

Kara is simply amazing at her craft. She does a beautiful job with highlights & color. I'm always thrilled upon leaving the salon.

Thank you Kara for giving me a very professional hair cut. See you soon. Sincerely, C Wood

My expierence with Stephanie was very professional.It was a great job on my hair and she was very personable!

Wonderful, as always!

Deirdre is wonderful as usual! Customer service spectacular

Deirdre is always such a pleasure! She gives a great cut and I truly enjoy the time I spend with her during it.

I am so thrilled with my stylist at Avante, Lindsey Abernathy. The cut she gives me is superb, and I love the way she highlights my hair as well. It always looks so natural (my # 1 goal!!) that people never say, "I love your highlights!" Instead, they say things like, "You look different..." but they can't put their finger on WHY! The salon is always so clean and well-kept. It's a great place to visit. Thanks, Avante!

Excellent job

Jen did a fabulous job as always!

Always a wonderful experience and great customer service.

Brooke did a great job

As always I was excited for my 10.25th appt with Kara Larkin. When most like to go darker for fall I go lighter. I showed Kara a few pics, we chatted and she got started. I always appreciate how she listens to my ideas and what I am looking for. She nails it every time. Thanks Kara. Xo Jennie

As usual I got a great cut and color with Katy!

I was waxed by Sue. Sue does a great job. She really listens and does exactly what I want.

I have been going to Avante for several years. Angie is a talented stylist and will take the time to talk to you about what look you want and will make helpful suggestions if you ask for her opinion. The salon is clean and tastefully decorated; the employees are polite and friendly - always a pleasant experience.

I love ALYSSA! She always does such a great job, and I always feel so great when I leave Avante! Thank you so much Alyssa! -Alyssa T

Jen W. my stylist is always so welcoming and happy to see you, and she does a wonderful job. And she does listen to you. Thanks Jennifer your the best. Deb

Excellent as always

Shawn did a great job . Thanks

Loved the color and cut!!!

Katy was wonderful. I am getting used to my new color! I liked your salon space--efficient and well organized. I give you 5 stars.

I look forward to each Avante experience!

Love Avante! Deidre is glorious! Skilled, pleasant, an excellent listener and wonderful hair stylist. Customer service all around is great. Environment is terrific.

beautiful job!

I got my very first eyelash perm at Avante. First of all the lady was super nice and explained everything to me. She kept checking that I was comfortable. I received a perm since my eyelashes DO NOT curl what so ever. Ive tried absolutely everything on the market and not even bends them a bit. Needless to say my lash are curled and beautiful after my painless and wonderful experience. I recommend this procedure to anyone who has the same issue as I do!

He's a genius with color!

Always a pleasure to come to Avante! The location is great for me (east Bradford), and I love my stylist, Katy!!

Holly is the best stylist! Love her!

Lauren Wonderful.

As always Jody is great. She listens to my hair needs.

Alyssa Gallen does amazing work. I have never left a hair cut happy with the result and have both times I've go it done by her. I also felt completely comfortable having her cut 7 inches off of my hair which says something given that I've NEVER had short hair (and I love it!). Thank you Alyssa and Avante!

Alaina was wonderful and I felt incredible when I left the salon. Front desk was more than helpful as always

Love Aubree!!

Love the way she colors my hair and manages to keep my highlights looking great even though she put them in 3 haircuts ago.

Good service

Stephanie Myers-Langford did an amazing job with my hair cut color! I let her do what she thought would look best and it turned out better than I could've ever suggested that I wanted. She is always friendly and makes me feel welcome.

Excellent on all counts! Shelly is an incredible stylist, colorist!

Breanna does such a great job on my hair!!!!

Brooke gave a great pedicure this afternoon.

I was VERY grateful that Hayley was available after my original plans feel through for make-up application for my maternity photos. I appreciated that she took her time, asked questions about how I wanted to look for my photos and ensured that everything was perfect before I left. Looking forward to seeing how the photos turn out!

I love Avante in WC. I live near Reading, Pa. It's nearly an hour both ways, but totally worth it. Stephanie, my stylist, is talented, professional and efficient yet bubbly, friendly and fun. I look forward to visiting her at Avante! Great staff and clean... 5 stars!

Denise is the very best for a massage. Love her

I love my appointments with Deirdre. First of all, she fit me in earlier after I made a request for an earlier appointment. My daughter had to come with me for a bit of the appointment and Deirdre got her a chair, shared some candy, etc. But the most important part is that my hair looks fabulous, as always! Thanks Deirdre. We love Avante.

Great cut and color!

From the first time I met Kara from the smile my hair gives me when I leave the whole experience is 10/10! She is not only so fun and accommodating, she can give you exactly what you want. I have never loved my hair like the way I do now. She took my black hair to have a gorgeous dimension with her balayage techniques. She has found herself a loyal client for life and I will refer many! -Noel M.

Never had a bad color or cut from Kathleen!! She is extremely consistent no matter what we are doing with my hair! Highly recommended!!

wonderful cut by Jody.

Excellent in every way,

She is fabulous! Jody is incredibly professional, and gives me the best haircuts that I have ever had!

Excellent. I am a long time customer and last night was a great experience. I was able to add a polish change to my scheduled appointment showing great customer service from Brooke and Johanna. Jody and Rebecca made sure the three hours spent in the salon were pleasant and more than bearable. Rianna did a great job washing my hair and I appreciated the entire process.

As usual Kathleen was excellent!

Jennifer Wolf is the best!

I have had numerous and frequent comments about the hair cut that Jen recommended and first did about 6 months ago. She has also been great about working with me as my ideas about color change over time. And she is kind about my lack of ability to do anything with my hair and has worked to keep me with something easy to keep up and give me hints and products to keep it looking nice. I love working with her.

Always love going to Avante - Lindsey is great and the whole staff makes you feel welcome

Kara never disappoints...she's an asset to Avante!

She always makes me feel like I'm her only client and we laughed the entire time I'm there...: I always love my hair ....so I happy with her

Another amazing and relaxing appointment with Jenny. Will be coming again very soon.

My appt. was for my roots, partial highlight, cut & style. Deirdre is a seasoned vet. and did an amazing job! I'm so happy that I found someone that can cut & color! :)

we almost all have it and hair needs to be maintained. i have been having Holly cut my hair for decades. she has always known what will make me happy and look good too. from the time i walk in the door and a receptionist announces i have arrived until i am making my next appointment i have a very peaceful and relaxing experience. all very nicely done ! Thanks.


Best keratin with Kathleeen

Jenny did a great job on my eyebrows... as always!

Breanna does a lovely job with my hair. Great place with pleasant people.

Brooke was quick and gentle in applying my new autumn color polish.

short notice and Jen fit me in and as always - a perfect job!

Thank you for your dependable, excellent results!

First color with this stylist

My time at Avante is always relaxing and fulfilling. Aubree is awesome, caring and extremely skilled. I always leave your salon feeling like a superstar! thank you for providing that opportunity!

Kim Powell nails it every single time. I love coming to Avante because I always feel like I'm being pampered even just for a haircut!!

Lauren did an amazing job, as usual!!

Kathleen does amazing hair cuts and color - I always leave Avante after a visit with Kathleen feeling wonderful and ready to meet the world! :)

Laura was lovely to talk with and I loved how she foiled my hair. It turned out just beautifully. My hair is my weak area and I panick when someone new is doing the coloring but Laura made me feel at ease and was extremely prifessional and competent! I will definitely go back to her again

Love new Monday night hours and love Breanna. She is so helpful and listens to what you would like

Always an enjoyable experience .

I was in yesterday for my routine mani and pedi with Johanna which is always professionally done. However, yesterday, I needed assistance with the amount of monies that I had utilized from my "gift certificate" and later in the day had to call back as my computer calendar had wiped out my future Avante appointments with Doug, Johanna and Sue. Kevin was more than gracious to take the time to help me with all. I so appreciated his professional demeanor and superb customer service. Thank you again Kevin! Nancy Shoudy

Excellent, as always

Amazing relaxing and fun! Must do it again soon! Everyone should do this facial with Sue

Everything was top-notch as usual, and fun. Nancy Klabunde

Shawn did a great job. Thanks

Lauren took some extra time and added some red and blue to my purple hair to make it multifaceted and looks just like a purple that could be grown naturally. Its beautiful and isn't one shade like a crayon. I am very very happy with the outcome. Also, she gave me a beautiful asymmetrical bob with fantastic asymmetrical bangs. She is always very nice and she is so very good at shaping my face. I can't imagine going to anyone else again.

Deirdre always knows what I need and listens to what I would like to do. She has always been open to trying things but guides too in making choices that help me look my best.....she is awesome!!!! Lauren

I give Kara Larkin a **********(10)STAR review. Thank you Kara for the professional services you offer to me and my daughter Jean Wood. We truly appreciate knowledge and skills. Thank you, Sincerely Clare Wood

I am always excited to come to Avante to get my hair done by Kara Larkin. I know I will leave satisfied and happy every time.

Doug is my stylist and as always he does a wonderful job. He is up to date, professional, and always has a good suggestion or two. He can answer all of my hair questions and then some. In addition, he's a hoot to chat with. I love him and enjoy the experience each time I visit.

Dani was very nice and I like my haircut.

As always Jody was on time and gave me the perfect cut and color.

Such great service and always what is expected

I have been to many hair stylist. But never found one that I felt comfortable. I love how Kara does her work. She is humble and honest . What I love about her is that she will tell you what looks good with your complexion. L.N

Brooke gave me a great pedicure this afternoon.

Great job

I love it here! I've been going to Alyssa to get my hair done for about a year now and she's nothing short of excellent! As a previous hair dresser myself, I'm a perfectionist when it comes to color and she nails it every time! The salon is clean and the staff is very friendly. I highly recommend Avante!

Got an amazing cut by Leslie ! She is incredible !! Thanks Leslie !!

As always, Avante does a great job. Thanks! !!

Shelly is the best stylist ever.

Both Hayley and Brooke did a wonderful job. Thanks so much.

Kathleen did a fantastic job on my hair today. She is awesome. Julie

Hayley waxed my brows yesterday and once again did a stellar job. She is always punctual, courteous, and professional. Thanks for consistently doing a great job!

Jen Wolf always does her best to make sure I am satisfied with my hair style. She goes out of her way to provide extra special service and to suggest what she knows I will like. She always asks my preferences and tries to accomplish my desires. She is very personable and interested in each client as an individual. I always feel so good when she is finished with me!

another fabulous cut by Michelle, she is great!

I was referred to Jody by my stylist, Stephanie who is out on maternity leave. Jody was very personable and took the time to understand what I wanted my hair to look like. She did a wonderful job.

I would highly recommend this salon to others! I am very picky when it comes to salons yet my stylist Kim has gone above and beyond. She is very good and listens to what you are looking for and makes it happen.

Excellent, super excellent.

another wonderful relaxing eyebrow tint and shape. Its so nice to be pampered and Jenny is an expert!

Very nice perm by Deidra

is there anything more than perfect, it is dealing with Jenn, she is so visual and creative, she needs to teach as well as do hair.

Avante consistently delivers expert hair care from their stylists!

I have very thick hair and have had terrible hair cut experiences. I walk out of your salon loving my hair every time Jen B cuts my hair. :)

Breanna did her usual great job, but went out of her way to accommodate my schedule. I'm very grateful!

Jen worked her magic again!

My stylist, Lindsey, is awesome. I just had cataract surgery and needed a new profile picture for Facebook. As usual, she gave me a really neat style and took pictures for me to use. Everyone on FB just loves the "new" me.

Jen worked her magic and made me look like Julianne Hough! She's a magician and the absolute best!!

I have been seeing Holly for years. She is amazing and always makes me feel beautiful when I leave!

Every time i go get my hair done by Alyssa, I walk out of Avante feeling like a million bucks! She is amazing and I will never go to anyone else besides her.

Brooke is my go-to nail tech because of her friendliness,skill and professionalism.

Fantastic all around.

Breanna is fantastic!!! I love my hair and I love her!!!

Alyssa and everyone at Avante is great! Very friendly and professional.

Great experience every time!

Wonderful facial - relaxing and refreshing - took many years off ... already scheduled another appointment! Yeah Sue!!!

My hair had gotten dry and unruly -- my husband was calling me 'straw head'! My long waves were weighing me down and my head looked like a bushy triangle. I knew I needed to go shorter, but not too short. Jody worked her magic and my new cut compliments my face and my unpredictable waves. My husband now calls me 'sassy'! I love it! Thanks, Jody!

Great experience - very professional, my hair looks fantastic! Had color & blow out and I am ready for date night!

Lindsey is the best!

Despite his considerable talent, he still goes to seminars to learn the latest techniques and approaches. That's very reassuring.

Can't imagine having my hair done by anyone else. Lindsey is amazing!

During last 8 months, Jody took me from brunette to grey mix Painlessly. Received lots of compliments while she kept styling,shine and total look going. She also kept the pep talk going as I Gradually adjusted to this situation. She truly is professional in all aspects of her work

she is the happiest, sweetest, most professional stylist

Jody is awesome ! I really look forward to seeing her & getting a great cut every 5 weeks!

Love Alaina! Always professional, fun and knows how to style my hair!

Lauren is a God send, absolutely the best hair colorist and stylist around. Love her

Everything, as usual, was great from start to finish.

I just moved back to the area and feel extremely lucky to have come across Avante Salon. Today was my second visit and I could not be more pleased. I received the best color and cut I've had ...maybe ever. Also need to ad when I arrived at Avante I was tired and stressed and when I left I was smiling and happy. Wonderful relaxing friendly atmosphere. It is a pleasure to share such my positive experience.

I love the atmosphere of the salon. Jennifer is such a wonderful hairstylist and I look forward to coming into Avante to get my hair done!!

Katie took over for Roseanne, while she is in the hospital. Did a wonderful job. Thanks all. lo Ruth

always excellent with Jen W

Good color and cut. Thanks!

She is so considerate and a talented person. Always feel relaxed and refreshed - and it was from getting my eyebrows tinted and waxed ... wonderful!

I have been coming here for my hair for 8 years. I love Katie! She is great and I love what she can do with my hair.

I have come to Avante for years for hair coloring and cuts by Deirdre in West Chester. She is an excellent stylist. I am a very satisfied client, and Deirdre is my go-to hair stylist.

I am always happy when I leave Avante! My haircuts are beautiful and exactly what I want.

I love Aubree! So professional and kind. Does a great Job with both cut and color'

As always, I am happy with what Kathleen did with my hair! She is the Best!!

Happy with my color processing and haircut as usual- also impressed with the work of the assistant who washed my hair after the process. Theresa once again cut my hair in style that suits me.

Loving it!

Johanna is the ultimate professional. She values her clients and is most flexible with their needs. She is the BEST!!!

Katy is one of the best stylists around. My hair is wavy, heavy, and frizzy. Katy has a very good understanding of how difficult hair works. I always walk out of the salon with a beautiful and natural style which I am able to maintain!

Jenny is fabulous.

I love Jody. She is always on time and very attentive to my needs and request.

Shawn did a great job with my color and cut but I really miss Roseanne. Hope that she has a speedy recovery.

Jenn Wolfe must have studied physics before working with hair, everything always works perfectly

Excellent as usual

LOVE my hair cut - Shelly did exactly what I wanted!

I've known Jody for a long time. I followed her from my previous salon. Always pleasant, I look forward to my visits with her. She's a friend. AND I love my haircut (short) and get many compliments. She's a gem.

Another amazing cut! Although I stopped coloring my hair, when she did color it, it was a wonderful match to what I requested...

Enjoyed my relaxing experience.

I got facial from Hayley today. She is phenomenal!!! Best facial ever!! She took the time to go over products and help me select the ones that would work best for me. Also, the receptionists were so patient, friendly and knowledgable as they answered my questions. I love Avante and will never go anywhere else!!

Jenny is fantastic!

Simply the best!

Always happy when I spend time at Avante. Doug & Jenny are great!

Brooke was great. Suggested trying gel next time. Sounds like it's worth a try.

Michelle Tigue is an amazing hairdresser!

Lauren chopped 8 inches off my hair to donate, and I love it!

I have been w Stephanie for at least ten years. I will follow her to the moon and back.

As far as your staff always kind and responsible. I love coming there. Thank you, Patti Katin

Lauren highlighted and trimmed my hair right before my wedding, then did my hair for my rehearsal dinner and wedding day. Both were beautiful! Thanks, Laur!!!

Haircut with Holly.... Always fantastic!

Haircut with Holly.... Always fantastic!

Thank you, Avante, for another great experience.

Love my hair stylish Shawn! She is great and does an amazing job!

Johanna was excellent

Avante takes good care of its customers. I had a crazy day at work, running errands, and dodging traffic and was well taken care of as soon as I walked through the door. My hair looks fantastic, and I felt pampered and relaxed the entire time I was there.

Shelly has been styling my hair for about a year, and I have always been happy with each haircut! She always has suggestions about how to make my hairstyle better, which I appreciate. Shelly is super friendly and an awesome stylist!

Shelly is amazing and always does a great job. I love seeing her when I come in.

Feeling good after Lindsey made me look good!! As usual, an outstanding haircut. I'll be going, going, back, back to Lindsey, Lindsey...

Rebecca did a perfect gray touch up!!!!!!!

The very best both professionally and personally.

Great stylist. Can make my hair manageable and simple!

Jody consistently gets it right with my short, wavy, thick, coarse hair. She has also been right on with helping me to allow my color to grow out and see just how much grey, white etc. I have to work with. Confident she will continue to guide me to keep it interesting as and even after the process is completed

Yesterday I had a pedicure with Kat. She did an awesome job! She was very prompt and very personable. We were able to chat the whole time and my toes look great!

IIgo to Stephanie at West Chester Avante location and she is amazing. Not only she does an excellent job on my hair, she also advises me if I have any question about my hair .

Aside from his terrific talent, he is always researching new techniques and learning ways of improving. It's very comforting to know that he's on top of developments in his field.

She is wonderful. Ann Sullivan

Kat M. Was my massage therapist today. She really focused on my "problem areas" that we spoke about at the beginning of the appointment. She was amazing and I left feeling extremely relaxed which was just what I needed. I will be requesting her again in the future. Thanks!

Theresa is the best!

Leslie is always spot on when styling and coloring my hair. I love it and ALWAYS get so many compliments!

I have been going to Kathleen for years now!! She is the best!!

I have gone to my hometown stylist for the past 15 years. When I moved to West Chester I continued to travel home when I could. When I had to find someone around here I was recommended to Jen B at Avante Salon and Spa. She did an absolutely AMAZING job with my cut as well as my blonde balayage color. I absolutely love it and have already received a ton of compliments-literally just got it done yesterday. The staff is so friendly and they squeezed me in when they had a cancellation. I will absolutely be back!

I drive an hour just for her--she gives the best haircuts plus is super nice....you should give her a big raise.

As always, Doug does a beautiful job! He is the best and even my husband is impressed.

Another wonderful visit. Roseanne is awesome and Diane does the best shampoo and scalp massage. Thank you.

I happily let anyone know who asks where I get my hair done ! I am confident that they will be as pleased as I am with the skill and personal service at Avante... Thank you Doug and all the staff I have gotten to know over the years

Sue does an excellent job analyzing a client's needs , treatment and wonderful massage. She also advises on best type of product to help mantain the glow we leave with

Thanks for making me beautiful Haley!

Brooke is a very skilled nail tech. My go to gal.

Jen is amazing! She helped me squeeze in around some medical appointments I could not change. She's so generous and kind. Just love her!!

I am very happy with my cut and color today.

Excellent, as always

After moving to Chester County from Philadelphia a year ago one of my biggest concerns was finding a hair stylist close to my new home. I am at the salon every four weeks for color and it is hard to find a stylist you feel comfortable with who is also highly skilled. Stephanie at Avante is amazing. She totally nailed my color finding the right formula to prevent fading, a problem I had been having for a while. She is also extremely sweet and upbeat. After the first visit I couldn't believe how long my color stayed vibrant until literally my 4 week mark where some grey started peeking through at the roots. I highly recommend Avante and Stephanie!

Everytime I have been to Avante for haircuts in West Chester on downingtown pike it has been awesome. Great experience everytime and great staff. Alyssa is amazing and I always feel pampered and love my haircuts and style. Thanks Avante :)

Full Foil Hi-Light

My experience today with Shelly was more than expected. She is very caring and concerned that I approve of the styling and "look" of my haircut and makes any adjustments I may request. We also have a lot of conversation during the session

Kathleen did a great job!

Jody is professional, knowledgable and provides great customer service.

Shelly is truly one of a kind. We relocated about one year ago and she is simply not replaceable. We were in the area and I was fortunate enough to get an appointment with her. Her professionalism and skill set to fully understand what I wanted (and needed) are greatly appreciated. She has a natural ability to listen and is a very caring and genuine person. I am a client for life no matter where I live. Thank you Shelly.

Lauren is awesome.Great job always.Extremely nice salon facilities and serviced. Love it!

Kara did a great job on my daughter's hair for prom. It went perfectly with her dress.

Denise doing a massage is the very best you can get. I love her!

I always count on Brooke for a beautiful manicure and am never disappointed. She is very professional and skilled. She is friendly and a pleasure to work with. Very accommodating with scheduling. A true driver of customer service.

i had a relaxing and most enjoyable experience. and Best of all ... a Great haircut!

Enjoyed my appointment

The color is really nice and natural looking. Seems to last longer! Thanks Alaina!

Another great haircut with Deirdre!

As usual service was great! Kathleen colored and styled my hair and made me look great!

Steph gives the best cut!

I have been coming to Avante since I was 17. I am 38 and Doug has been by sole stylist and friend now. I have very curly hair and he is the only one who knows how to cut, style and color it. He is my hair sole mate. I truly enjoy coming to Avante. Ivonne

I had a wonderful experience and most importantly I love my new hair cut. Kathleen is very nice.

Once again, thank you for your outstanding service!

Always enjoy the relaxing and fun atmosphere as well as the great hair style!

Recieved an eyebrow waxing from Sue. She was great and im very happy


Ummmmm.... yeah, she's pretty awesome!

I always have a great experience at Avante!

My hair stylist Breanna always makes my appointments enjoyable. Love my cut and color. Always get compliments from family and coworkers. All staff are attentive. Love avante salon and spa.

Brooke is my favorite nail tech. She is skilled, friendly, knows her products, and I relief on her advice.

Kat is a very personable nail technician. She is friendly and very talented. I love my nails. My experiences at Avante have been excellent!

Just started my two step process of going from red hair to dark brown base with blonde ombr like highlights with Alyssa! This is not an easy task since I have been coloring my hair bright red every 3-4 weeks for 8 months! After the first step my hair is already beautiful! The dark brown base is exactly what I wanted and the start of the highlights is beautiful too! Will take more in the next session to completely get the red out but I have complete faith in Alyssa! She was very easy to talk to and knows exactly what I am looking for! She already has done such a beautiful job that if I wasnt so set on going lighter I might have actually kept the color that came out in the first step! It really is beautiful and so close to my natural which I thought I would never see again after all the red I put in! I am looking forward to going back to finish the highlights and get the cut and will review again after! Btw I absolutely love this salon! I have never had a bad experience here and I can be pretty picky. Can't wait to come back

Wonderful cut, as always. First time getting lash tint here. They look great and I did not walk out with dye all over my face like I have from other salons.

Excellent job. Love it

Brooke was wonderful during my time with her. It passed so quickly.

wonderful as usual, it never changes

As always, Theresa did a wonderful job.

Got my Holly haircut! Wonderful, as always!

She rocks! I love her personality and she has fantastic abilities for cutting and coloring my hair so perfectly! Love the Avante atmosphere! Always feels so warm and welcoming!

Deirdre is the best!!!

Great visit to get my hair dyed and cut with Kathleen who is super sweet and professional. Look forward to scheduling again.

As always Jody gave me a great cut and color.

I have been getting eyelash perms with Sue for several years and I absolutely love the service! Sue is fantastic and the ambiance is wonderful.

As usual Johanna made my hands and feet look beautiful.

I am very please with Avante Salon and Spa. My stylist Kara Larkin is the BEST!! It's a great environment and everyone is very friendly. I love that I am greeted and offered a glass of wine, tea, coffee, water, even cheese and crackers. Kara is great, she is does a fantastic job with her cuts and color. I went from a dark brown, almost black, to soft, beautiful, carmel blonde highlights. Without me saying a word, she assured I didn't have to worry about brassy color, and I wasn't. I get so many compliments on my hair color and hair style. Kara cares about making her clients happy, while providing quality hair care.

I followed my stylist, Jody, to Avante and have been very pleased with everyone there. It's much more welcoming than the last salon I was at. It's clean and friendly, and I've never had an issue scheduling appointments. I've even rescheduled and they've been very accommodating. I recommend Avante to all my friends!!

Excellent, as always

5 out of 5

Alyssa is the best!

I've been a client of Alaina's for over 10 years. I'm never leaving her

I didn't know what to do with my hair and allowed the stylist, Doug, to choose a new look for me. I was extremely pleased with the coloring & cut! When you look good you feel good.

Always happy with the hair color and cut that I get here.

Doug has been cutting and coloring my hair for the last couple of years. He is AMAZING!!! He has the Midas touch when it comes to hair and a great personality. Book an appointment with him and I promise you that you won't regret it

Five stars for Aubree! My daughter and I are customers of hers, and we just LOVE her and her color and cuts are wonderful!!

I recently saw Shawn at Avante for a color and cut. I went in with some pictures as a reference of what I was looking for, but I was still pretty vague and uncertain when I tried to explain what I wanted to do with my hair. Shawn was super helpful in recommending a color that ended up being exactly what I was hoping for! I was just as happy with the haircut and style she gave me. I would highly recommend her if anyone's in need of a new stylist.

Best colorist that I've even been to..

fast service with a great cut




As always, my appt with Holly was great. She always listens to what I'm thinking and translates it into something she executes perfectly.

Another wonderful experience with Lindsey at Avante today. She does everything with concern and caring- I am thrilled to have her taking care of me!

Had my first pedi w/Johanna yesterday, and she was awesome! She did a great job and recommended a fantastic color!

All around service is 100%

As always, everything went swimmingly, and I'm pleased with he perm results. Nancy Klabunde

Wonderful and relaxing!!!

Good job. Assistant did a great job finishing my shampoo as my stylist was finishing her clients hair. Talkative but not too much!

I recently moved to the area and decided on Avante based on many positive reviews and the fact that they're open on Sundays. Love the atmosphere and my stylist - Rebecca is awesome and has successfully transformed (and maintained) my dry brassy blonde highlights into the exact red brown color and style I've been wanting. The fact that she's a new stylist and already talented says a lot about the company. Plus - there's an ATM which is extremely convenient. Overall very satisfied!

Theresa just brightened up my knee replacement rehab by brightening up my head of hair with a warm weather look inspite of MotherNature's seeming reluctance to look at the calendar.

I love everyone who takes care of me Jody does a wonderful job with my hair My nails always look wonderful thanks to Johanna Jenny gives the best facials Love it Thanks

Love Lindsey

Bar none, best stylist I have ever had

Love Kathleen! I am always happy with my hair!! I have been going to her for about 4-5 yrs now. Never a disappointment! The salon is great too! So many friendly staff members!!

Kathleen was excellent as usual. I wanted to try a new style and she is working with me on it. She's the Best!

First time. She listened to what I wanted in color and I showed her photos of my style. I was pleased.

excellent, as always

I have a regular appointment with Shelly every 5 weeks for a haircut, since I am now wearing my hair pretty short. I am always greeted by the front desk when I walk in and rarely have to wait for my appointment - Avante runs very close to the scheduled appointment times. Shelly is awesome! She assesses your hair before shampooing and asks my opinion as to what should be done. Often there are a few minor changes which she always gets right. Her ability to listen and execute changes is always spot on. Great haircut and blowout - I always leave Avante feeling like a million dollars! Thank you!

Shawn took me short notice and did a wonderful job on my lowlights! My hair looks great. Thank you Shawn!!!

love Avante, they always do a superior job and make me feel beautiful. Jenn Wolf is the best stylist!!


I can't say enough about how professional and how good Sue is with her treatment. She does not rush through the appointment, and she thoroughly explains what she is going to do before the facial begins. I always highly recommend her to all my friends!! ??????????

Perfect !

Shelly is the best stylist! Always pleasant and running on time but more than that she is great at her job! All the stylist around her so nice as well. Today one of them recognized me as shellys client and while the front desk girls were busy she got Shelly for me and brought me back to her station! Love this salon and the people in it!

Lauren is very pleasant and did a great job for me on Sat.! I look forward to seeing Brianna soon too! Thank you for asking my opinion. Have a good week. Sincerely, Joanne Ruggeri

I have come three times now and so happy. I work hard and it is nice to come I. And be pampered...

Rory is only 2 years old, but with a great mop of hair. Lauren did a fabulous job of taming the curls. He left looking much more like the feisty but sweet little boy he is. Thanks, Lauren, for taking such good care of him! Now people will be sure when he wears he shirt and tie on Easter.

Once again, Doug has provided entertaining conversation along with a terrific cut and great color!

As always, Johanna values her clients and takes care of them while providing exceptional service. Nancy

She is such a perfectionist!!

Another great appointment with Jenn. She is always so happy and fun to talk with while she's doing my hair.

Michelle Tae is awesome!!

Jody is my stylist. She really listens to my hair concerns. I am very pleased.

Jody d'Angelo does a wonderful job on my hair. She is professional, creative, and always pleasant. And she is always on time for her clients. One thing I would suggest, in your color room, I think there should be a sign that says no cell phones. I sat next to a lady who carried on a twenty minute conversation about a very personal subject. I am there to relax. Just a suggestion.

Brooke is awesome.

Great color help with my brassy hair and good cut thx

I am in the process of moving to the areas, i heard that Katy was a great hairdresser. I can say that without a doubt the word is true, Katy is professional, friendly, "with it" with regard to the latest style and a great colorist. I am so happy to have found Katy, her color assistants and Avsnte

Haylee did a very nice job and corrected something for me. Love them now

Avante is just great. I'm never kept waiting, offered water and wine, and the staff are friendly. Ange did a great job on my hair.

I think If I showed up for my appt., Alaina could do a great job. LOL. I actually get there later rather than sooner and she is very gracious in her understanding.

Service was outstanding. Greeted very niicley, no wait, I am very pleased with my hair style. Thank you Kara. See you in 21 days. Clare Wood

As always Doug did an excellent job on my color and cut. My husband loves the look!!

Great service

I am extremely pleased with the service I receive at Avante. Shawn is very friendly and professional. I love getting my hair colored at Avante, plus the scalp massage is just heavenly! I would recommend Avante to everyone. You will be treated like a person and not like a number.

Excellent service and great cut and style. Kim is always amazing with her talent. I am always so happy with her service! She is a true professional!

I have been going to Alyssa for cut and color for a while now, and she's amazing. I get so many compliments on my cut, and the color! She takes the time to figure out what I want and offers up the greatest advice. I recommend everyone to try Avante, it's a wonderful salon experience.

As always- Jen is fab! She knows my hair like the back of her hand and I would be hard pressed to find a better stylist anywhere!

Roseanne is awesome


I was greeted when I walked in the door by the receptionist. I gave her my name and the stylist for my appt. and she told me she would inform the stylist that I had arrived.I also asked her to check on my gift cert to confirm the value.I waited less than 5 minutes for the stylist to appear and escort me to the shampoo area. We engaged in pleasant conversation immediately and she set me up in the shampoo area and asked what type of haircut would I like today. We went to her station upon finishing the shampoo and pleasant conversation continued. A few times during my service I was asked if i liked the cut so far--shorter?or acceptable? I asked for shorter and she provided a shorter haircut. I must say I was bothered a few times by the blow dryer from the stylist working with her client in the chair next to mine when my hair was blown inadvertently. I was very pleased with my haircut and my experience today. My stylist is named Shelly.

I appreciate the good work Johanna does.

Excellent service with Shawn.

Kara Larkin is a master of color..

Good morning, I love that my stylist is available on Sundays. Great day for women who work and find it difficult to get in during the week. Like my stylist. She's knowledgeable, pays attention to my concerns(grey around temples that seem to fade very quickly) and she I love her services One of the things I look forward to is the hair washing. My stylist's assistant shampooed and conditioned my hair this time and it was not quite as long as my stylist normally does. My stylist had another client in her chair when my shampoo was done, and the assistant didn't have any tasks to do so it would have been nice to have had my hair shampooed/massaged a bit longer. Thank you!

Always great service. Very attentive staff. Clean environment .always pleased with my color, highlights and cut.

She is wonderful and I am completely satisfied. Ann Sullivan

Johanna consistently does a superb job and has taken care of my nail needs when Daria was out on disability and has now adopted me as her client since Daria left. Her work is superb and her interpersonal skills make me truly feel like a valued client. She goes above and beyond to get me in even when her schedule is totally booked. In my book, Johanna is a great representative of the Avante team. Nancy Shoudy

I am happy to have Breanna "know" my hair and what works for me. Thanks. Kate Campbell

Excellent!!!! She is the best!!!!

So much awesome talent. Thank you for making me a creation of fun and beauty.

Excellent as always.

Great stylist and makes you feel like part of the family.

Great stylist and makes you

Excellent, as always

Special thanks to Shelly! Top skills and appreciate all, especially the personal attention to detail !! Also the efficiency of all. Can't wait for my next appt. Liz

I have gone to her for years and I always leave looking great.

Teresa and Brook were great. This is my 3rd visit ,. I think I'll be making this my new salon. Thanks, Kendra Senn and Jen Flynn for the recommendation.

Hayley is not only awesome at her job, she very personable as well!

Awesome......I come back once a month. Skin feels fabulous at 61 years of age!!

Katy is not only so pleasant but a super stylist who listens to what your concerns are and then gives you a great cut!

Alaina is is amazing!always refer her

Alaina is is amazing!always refer her

Always a pleasurable experience!

Lauren is fantastic! I am always pleased with her service!

Jody has done wonders to my hair. My hair has become so much healthier and stronger since coming to the salon. The salon atmosphere is amazing, from the flowers to the hot coffee to the cookies no complaints! Everyone is always happy and helpful. Jenny always makes you feel relaxed and is so kind.

Haley does an excellent job with facials and waxing. She makes my skin look smooth and luminous.

I always enjoy working with Lauren. She is great with color and cuts!

Been getting my hair cut and colored for years with Lindsey, she's the best. Salon is clean, staff friendly.

Always the best, never a complaint will you hear from me, even after all these years!!!

So nice, professional and she does a great job on my hair!!!!

Jennifer Bacon is an awesome hair stylist. She is very talented. I'm completely satisfied with her service and how my hair turned out.

She (Theresa) always does a great job! You know when your teenage boy requests to see the stylist you've struck gold.

Great color, great haircut. Love it.

Kathleen did a beautiful job as usual!

Wonderful and relaxing anti-stress massage. Will do it again.

Michelle is always ready to send me out of the salon looking FABULOUS!!

5 stars

I so look forward to my hair appointment! Seeing Katie is like visiting an old friend while getting my hair done, what more could you want. She always dose a great job with my hair. The staff at Avante is always quick to greet you with a smile. I would not consider ever going any where else and I recommend them to everyone. The overall experience is pleasant and very welcoming due to a wonderful staff. Great Job!

My long time stylist, Holly, was not available due to illness so I chose to have my haircut by Aubree today. She's a lovely person and gave me a great cut so I am ready for the holidays. Thank you Avante!

Best service anywhere. Leslie A. Is an awesome stylist who knows her craft

As always, thanks and have a wonderful Christmas

Hayley made the Purifying Facial feel brand new. I love this facial and really enjoy the way all the products smell; rose, pine, eucalyptus. But the mask, which is the one product that stays on the face longest smelled like wet dog! Not sure why this one product doesn't have a pleasant smell, but it was a surprise. Wish it smelled like roses!

Love Avante and my stylist Stephanie! I won't go anywhere else

Very pleased with my last minute appointment and a new stylist.

Very pleased with my last minute appointment and a new stylist.

I give Avante 5 stars. The front desk is always very busy but the girls are friendly and for the most part are able to handle it. Shelly does my hair and Hayley does my waxing. They are both excellent at what they do, they listen well to what I want and they always try to accommodate.

Jennie does my daughters brows and does a beautiful job! She is such a pleasure to see every few weeks.

Everyone at West Chester Avante is great!!! FYI - I am originally from Bucks County. My very good friend has done my hair forever - until I started going to Avante. Thank you!!

Alyssa did a wonderful job on my hair! I'll definitely be back.

as always- a wonderful evening with my stylist Theresa!

Jody did a great job on my hair as always. ~Mary

Kathleen is fab!! I have been going to her for like 3 or 4 years!! Love her!!

Couldn't get any better!

I have never been "that girl" that got excited to get their hair done. Probably because I was never satisfied when I was walking out the door. I also think that this pairs with the stylist never listening to me and doing what they wanted. None the less, I am very thankful I was introduced to Avante from a good friend. Everyone in the salon is so kind and approachable. Even at busy times, the salon is clean and everyone seems to have everything under control. Versus other salons where it is a mad house and it just feels like you apart of a revolving door. Rapping up this novel, Avante is a great salon and I will be sure to spread the word. Kara Larkin is not only a great stylist but she is so sweet which makes you enjoy your time there even more. I think I enjoy getting my hair done now :) Jennie

Great care taken by all I have contact with whenever I am in the salon THANKS TO ALL!

Excellent,as usual.

I love my pedicures from Johanna, she is the best!!! Karen Everhart

Stephanie is the best! Always top notch

My name is Sarah Gilbert and I had my hair done by Shelly yesterday, Tuesday dec 15. Not only did my color come out perfect, but she is very comfortable and listened to all the drama going on in my life haha. I will definitely be back to her. She gets an A+ in my book. Happy holidays!

I always book my appointments at the end of the day. I love being able to relax and enjoy such great conversation and laughs. The staff is always so polite and professional. I have always trusted Jenn Bacon to create my many styles and have loved each and every one of them! Jenn is the BEST! I have recommended Avante many times and will continue to do so! Thank you!

Shelly listens to her customers and understands what we discuss. Always happy with the cut and color.

Absolutely wonderful.

Every year we have a Holiday Spa Day and this year we choose AVANTE in West Chester. Kat M was our masseuse and what a wonderful experience we all had at Kat's hands, she is just wonderful. Kat W did our Mani & Pedi's and was also wonderful and so so friendly and pleasant. A perfect relaxing day. I would not hesitate to recommend Avante for that special treatment and we all deserve. One thing I would recommend is that bottled water be available for the lounge area - it is always good to drink lots of water after a massage.

I would request that I receive email/ texts with the time and date of my appointment. This message should accommodate any CHANGES in the scheduling. I would also request that when changes are made to the appt. schedule that they be noted/ updated in the client's file. I was unable to have my complete visit due to the fact that my schedule was changed (to accommodate my request) but no update was made in the appt. schedule, nor did I receive an email or text to remind me of my appt. I had a printout that did not reflect the change. Yes, my stylist was able to accommodate me, however the mix up could have been avoided if I had received an updated email or text.

Haylee deserves 10 stars! She does great eyebrows and lashes. And I'm very picky!!!!

Service was grade A from start to finish.

Steph's the best!

Great experience. She was graciously filling for Holly (my regular clinician who is in the hospital) and she did a superb job. We also had a great gab fest. I would recommend her to anyone. Ann Sullivan

I'm always skeptical when it comes to getting my haircut, usually I'll say I only want an inch taken off and I end up losing 3. However, Avante did a great job with listening to what I wanted and following through. I showed my stylist a picture of how I wanted my hair done and it came out almost identical to that picture. Also wonderful shampoo / head massage treatment beforehand. Very friendly service, I definitely plan to come back again and again.

I had my haircut by Kim earlier this week and not only loved my haircut but her as well !!! I have already recommended her to my daughter .

Another excellent experience with Theresa!

Always a great experience...my color looks incredible...she goes above and beyond consistently and on top of all that, she's a wonderful person.

The facial with Sue was, as always, a very pleasant experience. Not only do these visits improve my skin, but they also improve my overall health.

Katy is absolutely the best stylist out there! She listens to what you want, and exceeds expectations every time!!

Excellent, as always.

I was a regular client of Daria's and now will be Johanna's as I respect the fact that she values me as a client as well as provides superb service. Due to a personal issue this week, I had to cancel my scheduled appointment with her. Despite her full schedule, she found another time that worked for both of us and I was so appreciative.......

Great color and cut! Alaina always does a beautiful job and I appreciate all her style tips!

LIndsey is the BEST!

Sue always does a wonderful wax treatment. I have been coming to her for years and will continue to use her services in the future.

Wonderful salon and the BEST stylist ever. Always feel like a million bucks when I leave!

Excellent service, it is a great salon and always recommend it.. Shelly is the best!!

I have beem to many stylists and I was never satisfied. Then I found Deirdre and I stopped looking! She does great things with my hair--it always looks cute even when we are growing it out. And now my teenage daughter goes to her too! She did an amazing job on her prom hair last spring--best hair at the prom by far! Deirdre is funny and nice and I always leave her chair happy. Can't recommend her highly enough.

I could never imagine going to anyone but Shelly. I trust her implicitly and am always blown away by her amazing work!

She's just amazing. My color is fab. The cut I got two times ago is holding strong. She revived my broken/damaged hair. I can't say nice enough things to show my appreciation.

Loved Aubrey . She is a super nice person and an excellent stylist. Will definitely come back for Aubrey

Avante at Bradford Square is a great location, and has a great atmosphere! My stylist - Katy - is wonderful!! I always recommend your services to friends. I have one small request: I would very much like to get the email & text reminders. I have requested to get on the reminder list, but so far no one has been able to make it happen. I think it's a glitch. If you can help, I would be most grateful!

I always love the way Shelley does my hair! She is very talented! Thank you!



Holly is a professional...great with color. If I was not 100% satisfied, I would have left many months ago. Always a pleasure to see her.

Shelley is a sweetheart. She is talented and always has great suggestions!

Kim is fantastic and I would not trust my hair with anyone else.

Katie is excellent

Johanna did a great job, as usual. Love my nails.

Jen always does a great job - she's the reason I'm still a customer! And my hair looks great! I love the color of low lights she uses and the way she creates what I call darts in my hair ;-) Thank you Jen for always doing such a great job!

As always, Daria provided great services on my final (unbeknownst to me) appointment. However, as a regular client of Daria's and a long-term client of Avante, I would have expected to have been alerted to her departure in advance ~ more than 2 days from her last day. Imagine my shock when she told me that "Friday was her last day" on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving during my appointment. I understand that it was Daria's decision to "tell everyone in person". However, as a long-term client, I don't feel that was the best decision. Having worked in sales/marketing, my clients were made aware of my departure the day that I gave notice to my employer. On a selfish note, I learned of her departure later than most of her clients and thank goodness that Johanna stepped up to the plate and made room for me on her schedule right before the Christmas holidays as she is my preferred nail technician in Daria's absence. Thank you, Nancy Shoudy

Roseanne is absolutely awesome and Diane does the best scalp massage

Awesome job, Lauren!

I stopped in bc I'm new to area and needed a quick eye brow wax. They were so nice and squeezed me in bc I needed to travel out of town. Haylee was the best! And I'm very picky. I will definitely be back!!!!

as always

First time I ever saw Leslie. She did an amazing job on my hair.

Stephanie Langford has done my hair for a while and is always fabulous

Your salon is wonderful. SHELLY is the best! She is an amazing colorist and I always love love my hair. Thank you!

Spent a wonderful morning at Avante. As always, Kathleen made me look beautiful and Johanna made my hands and feet look great. These ladies are always caring and make their clients feel special!

I love Haley! She does a great job with waxing my brows. I have full and heavy brows that need regular trimming. She listens to my requests and always makes my brows look so natural and beautiful. She is very professional and very friendly. I would highly recommend her to my friends and family. Susan

Wonderful look when I left, nails, toes, hair!

Great job from Briana. As I am Still having hair issues, she was able to really camouflage the thinning hair areas. She was helpful and so nice! Thanks!

Great cut and style. Also great price


Everyone is friendly & attentive, quick to smile & offer to help. It's always a relaxing few hours in my busy life, the bonus is a great haircut, color, style & brow wax. Thanks to Jenny & Doug & all the assistants who help out when the schedule is hectic. Terry Malany

Stephanie in Bradford Square put high lights and low lights in my blond hair that brought the color alive. Other stylist have been able to put red tones in my hair but the red low lights Stephanie aided really enhance the natural color of my hair. Thanks, Stephanie.

Had another wonderful appointment with Lindsey. She is great with working my difficult hair. She is a fun person and great stylist.

So sorry that Daria is leaving. Will miss her very much, but wish her well.

Nobody does waxing as great as Jenny in the entire trip-state area!

Jody does an awesome job. She is consistently good with color as well as style cut. Always pleasant, always upbeat, Jody makes you feel like a friend, as well as a client. Mary Ellen

My stylist is Jen Bacon. She is always very kind and accommodating. She is on time and does a great job. The staff gives their best and are always looking for the needs of the customer. I enjoy my visits to the salon..........joan garbers

Avante awesome as always! Love my stylist, Jen Wolf! She's the best!

I am always happy with my appointments with kara. She is a great stylist!

i will really miss Daria. She's been great!

Excellent, as always.

Deirdre does my hair and Sue does my waxing. I love both of them and always look forward to my appointments. I go out of Avante feeling like celebrating. They are both professional and personal at the same time. I would recommend the salon to anyone.

Dear Shelly, You are the best! Your skills are just fantastic! Thank you so much for all, and especially for taking me on as a new client. Sincerely, Liz Sheely

As a customer of 15 years..I look in the mirror as it gets close to my appointment saying, "oh, thank goodness, "Jen" will surely work her magic"..and she does! Lindsey and Stephanie and the entire staff work hard to please their customers..which is magic in itself since the results are all so visible' Appreciatively! Cc Jen Bacon

I came in for a haircut and an eyebrow wax with Lauren and Sue respectively, and I was in and out quickly while looking awesome. Thanks guys!

Awesome!!!!! Won't go to anyone else!!!!

Love coming to Avante and being greeted by the friendly girls at reception! Jen W does a fantastic job! Her color skills are unreal!

Lindsey was amazing. She truely cared and was listening to what i wanted in a haircut. She spent extra time with me to make sure it was just right and I so truely appreciate that! I will definitely be back! And my haircut is awesome!

I enjoyed my visit with Kara Larkin. She always does an outstanding style with my hair. ***** Thank you Kara. Sincerely, Clare Wood

Just had appointment with Michelle Tigue - she does a fantastic job with both cutting and coloring.

great hair cuts, worth every penny. Always receiving compliments after I get my haircut for a few days afterwards. I got an eyebrow way and that was great too depending on the person, although the best outcome with eyebrows is to bring a photo of what you like/want.

Kara did a fabulous job on cut and color. I absolutely love it!

Thank you for your skilled professional staff, for consistent, outstanding service, and for excellent results.

Had a cut and color with Jody, and it was great! I brought her a picture and she tweaked my cut a bit to fit what I want to do. She's great with dealing with my sensitive skin, and makes sure I don't have a reaction to the color. Can't wait to see her in December!

Jody is very professional and caring. She listens to me and my hair concerns. I recommend her highly.

Thanks Jody. Great job.

A respite from the day, coming in and enjoying my visit with Theresa that always ends in a terrific outcome for my hair.

Sue is the best! She does an amazing job!

As always, just the best experience, Luisa gives a service effortlessly. Looking forward to the next one. Last week my hair appointment with Holly was just as relaxing. I applaud your staff at Avante!!

I have been going to Michele for 14years for my hair. She takes her time to color, cut and style my hair. There is no one better than Michele! Thank you!

I have been going to Michelle for 14 tears, she is absolutely the best! I leave the salon with an amazing color, cut and style. Thank you Michelle for your hard work. Pat Harvey

Brooke is professional and friendly. My gel manicure is done really well and I look forward to getting my nails done.

I used Avante for my bridal parties hair and make-up for my wedding. It was wonderful! They had a breakfast display with mimosa's set, and the staff was so kind, sweet, efficient, and supportive. With 7 women getting hair and make-up done, the staff did great staying on schedule and getting us out of there on time -- without us rushing one bit!! I highly reccommend Kara for hair, and Hayley for make-up, as they made me feel beautiful on my special day. Thank you Avante!

I come on a regular basis to see Doug and get a haircut and sometimes a highlighting. I love Doug and would never see anyone else. He has a great personality and it makes my day to see and spend time with him when I come in.

Lindsey is absolutely amazing! Couldn't imagine letting anyone else touch my hair!

Excellent service with Brooke.

I had a color and a blow dry. The experience was great. Katy was my stylist and she is very personable and knowledgeable. Chesley did my blow dry. Again, very knowledgeable and personable.

She is wonderful. She will do anything to please you. The gels she puts on stays on the whole two weeks.

Alyssa is the best stylist I have ever had. She always takes the time to talk through what I want, gives great advice on what will and won't work, and is a lovely person as well. From the moment I go into Avante WC, it's a pleasant experience start to finish. I would highly recommend!

Emily was very professional! She helped me relax during my stressful time of wedding planning and working full time nights. She made me feel very comfortable. Avante has always been a great place, everyone is always friendly, the facility is always clean, and I feel like I get what I'm paying for. I will continue to come to Avante, and can't wait to have a team of Avante professionals for my wedding day!

Jenny is the best, hands down!

As always Jen W. did a terrific job cutting my hair. Not only is her service outstanding, but also she treats me like a long-time buddy...how great is that!!!!

Kara is fantastic. Every time my color is great. The staff is friendly and I walk out happy. What more could you want?

I was looking for a beauty salon closer to my home. My friend recommend Avante. Although the manicure and pedicure was a little more costly than I expected, I was very happy with the service. I was very pleased with my haircut and my beautician, Stephanie. I will definitely visit again

After many years of sitting in the room with 6 chairs, I find that it is intolerable anymore to hear yourself think, let alone read. Today there was only one client, besides myself, and her stylist. They were talking so loudly I had to move my seat into the hair dryer section of the shop. Unfortunately, my observations over the last year is that the stylists themselves talk way toooo loud and are unobservant of other clients. Not sure if I will continue to tolerate such an unrelaxing time at the salon given the prices I pay. It used to be that you go and get your hair done for some pampering and down time. Now I find myself feeling/ leaving irritable. I have waited at least a year to decide whether or not to make a complaint. I have been going to Avante for almost 15 years.

Shelly is awesome. I'm more in love with my hair today than I was last night after she finished!!

You're the best!

I just love, love, love my shorter hairstyle and the color is perfect. Not to mention my eyebrows look great. I feel like a new woman. Thank you Shelly and Jenny

My first time there, had a great experience. Kat Winter was very professional and helpful with choosing colors and my mani/pedi is beautiful. Will be coming back

Jen Wolf does a fantastic job not only with hair and color. She is always smiling and welcoming every time I am in your salon. She gets and A plus for her customer service!!! Thanks Jen, Cindy P

Excellent service, as always. JH

Lindsey is absolutely brilliant. She always know exactly what to do. I always look forward to my afternoon at Avante!

Lauren is polite, friendly and very talented. She has fun ideas for any length!

Avante took care of me today when something unexpected happened with my stylist. Jen B did an amazing job and I am so thankful she could help out.

Sue made my eyebrows fabulous and Jen B made my hair fantastic. What more could a girl want!!

I have been going to Avante for several years now...and my stylist (Jen Bacon) is always SPECTACULAR at listening to my ideas and then executing them perfectly! :)

I have been going to Deirdre for several years now, and she is by far the best stylist I've had. She is terrific at figuring out how to create styles that will look good on my sometimes-difficult hair; and she is always cheerful, fun, and full of energy. I love her!

Sue is a true professional who excels at her job. Always pleasant, on time and not hurried.

I've been going to avante for about 1.5 years. First on High street then to Teresa (who miraculously fixed my hair before my wedding), then to Stephanie! Teresa and Stephanie are both fantastic! Stephanie colored and cut my hair this evening and I think it is my favorite cut to date! The color is also wonderful! Thanks a million!!!!

Roseanne is WONDERFUL!

What a great salon you have, I am new to the area and am just DELIGHTED with the service and professionalism of the staff. they are so personable, it is like I have been going to the salon for years and today was only my second visit. I love it and love the way my hair is ....thank yo Katy and thank you Rebecca for my color\ Geralyn

Loyal Larkin client...never disappointed!

Cannot even explain how much I love my hair after going to Avante, the cuts and coloring are amazing.

As usual Kathleen was great. Everyone was professional and friendly.

Always a great appointment !

Love Holly! She does such amazing work.

Thanks to Alaina my thinning hair was styled so nicely, that you can't see any problem!

great as always

Roseanne does an awesome job! She is the only one who got my color right after chemo! Red is hard to match. Now I have a granddaughter with the same color.

Teresa Posse is simply the best stylist and an awesome advertisement for Avante. When people compliment my hair style and they ask me where I go and who I see, I'm happy to tell them.

It was awesome

Kat gave me a wonderful massage. My shoulders and back feel so much better now. My manicure looks great thanks to Brooke.

Always happy with the services at Avante. Holly is the best stylist around!

Don't know what I'd do if Kathleen couldn't do my hair' she is the best!!

Scheduling was a nightmare. I've been a client for several years. Had an appointments on Oct 14 to see Kim, Daria and Sue. I have the written card from the front desk to prove I had these appointments. The day before the appointments I called Avente to confirm and I was told I had no appointments scheduled. That being said I had to schedule these appointment separately and on different days. Since I am unable to drive, it was a good thing I called to confirm, since I needed to depend on my daughter-in-law to drive me.

All around excellent service! Leslie works miracles!! She's is very good at what she does. Keeps me coming back.

I have always been pleased with the customer service and especially the expertise of Holly Horn.

I love going to Avante! My stylist Kara is amazing especially with doing blonde hair! She gives me the best blonde color and highlights I have ever had! She never steers me wrong when doing a new style and she is on top of the hair stylist game keeping up with the latest trends! Oh and she has an awesome and funny personality too. I look forward to my appointments with her... it's like a girls night out for me!

Thanks, Jody

Roseanne is the best stylist. She always listens and makes great suggestions.

Perfect, love her!

She's personable, talented and a great listener -- both personally and professionally. She is everything a client hopes for in a stylist and a genuinely nice person to spend time with. She's the total package!

As she does everytime Kara did a phenomenal job on my hair tonight. The extentions and color are absolutely perfect. I could not ask for more! Kara really has a gift to be able to transform her clients into having the look they have always wanted. Thank you Kara!!

another great cut and color by Deirdre!

Great experience as always!

I like Avante but don't feel I should be charged $50 for cutting an inch off the bottom of my hair. I also don't consider drying my hair as styling.

Kathleen always does a FABULOUS JOB!!!!!!!

I don't have to say it but I will. Holly was amazing - my color is on point. The cut from the last time is still getting compliments. Hair genius.

excellent in every way

The girls were wonderful! So sweet and made me feel very comfortable! I am excited to get my hair and make up done for my wedding there!

Alyssa did an awesome job with my up do and it stayed in and curled all day and night!

Everything went smoothly.

Daria is great!

Jenny's attention to detail is the best! I can't go to anyone else now that I've found her.

Everyone is very nice! We love Stephanie...our whole family goes to see her. Pleased we found the salon!

Excellent service. Deidre is spectacular. You also provided off-site exquisite services for a 14 person bridal party. Everyone looked gorgeous! Highly recommend. THANK YOU!

I had a great experience with my stylist Stephanie Langford! She did an amazing job as usual and provided great customer service!

poorly assembled survey, but Jen Wolfe is still and always be my favorite, a more visual woman I have never seen, she gets it, your wishes, your thoughts as good or bad as they might be, just every time I walk in the door, it is time for me.

Lindsey provided a wonderful experience for my Color & cut appt. Thank you.

I am always happy with the results of cut and color with Theresa.

I have been coming to your salon for a long time and my technicians mean the world to me. I had my gel manicure tonight with Daria who as always gives great service. I had to change my appt. and she has always been willing to accommodate my schedule and even stayed late tonight to get the service done so that I didn't have to miss it. She is an asset to your organization.

Wonderful experience!

Love them, perfect for fall! Lauren is the best!

Great hair cut and Breanna is great too.

Shelly is great. Friendly and professional. She always starts on time, I never have to wait. Hayley did waxing. She is great too, everyone there is very professional.

Everyone is great and goes over and above to provide comfort and attention. I love my hair cut and color. Alyssa is awesome!!

I love coming to Avante. The staff is always nice and friendly. The appointments always run on time and I receive great service !

very good

Always a pleasure to have Jody do my cut and color ... She listens to what I would like, offers her professional opinion and I walk out happy!

I have been coming to Avante for at least 15 yrs and your phone service has never improved. I called to change an appt. after going through all of the prompts selecting the bradford plaza salon, and then waiting for someone to answer the phone about 7 minutes, a young man answers the phone only to say, Hello Avante, please hold, and then I waited another 3-4 min. Ridiculous. This isnot new. always been like this. My hair stylist deirdre is the best, however, love her!

Always receive great top notch service, very friendly and accommodating staff!

Johanna is an absolute genius.

Rebecca did a great color!

Excellent......already booked another appt.

I went to Jodi as Kathleen is out on maternity leave. I liked her a lot. She was easy to talk to and helpful directing me to the right conditioner to use.

Aubree gave an amazing hair cut and color. I love this salon and i am extremely satisfied with the service.

Dear Avante - as always lovely service and great cut and color!!

It is always a great experience . Everyone one is kind and helpful. And of course i have the best hair dresser in the world. Shelly

Yesterday, July 14, 2015, I had an appointment for a single process with stylist, Jen B. Although I have been a client at Avante for many years, this only the second time I have ever had Jen B do my color because my usual stylist, Kara Larkin, is rarely available when I am available. I was running a few minutes late but Jen B greeted me with a beautiful smile and her kind and gentle ways. We sat in the chair, talked for a moment about what I wanted (note -- not what she wanted to do, but what I wanted.) and after asking me if I wanted anything to drink, etc. she excused herself to mix my color (which, by the way, was awesome last appointment and she did not disappoint this time, either). Jen's brush application is precise and careful and I found my color to last about two weeks longer than usual. After the hair coloring process (with low lights and high lights), hair washing, finest scalp massage and deep conditioning, we proceeded to Jen's chair and she lightly trimmed my hair to freshen the style. It was perfect. Jen is beautiful (no visible tatoos!), not too talkative, reserved in her manner, talented, kind and I am, once again, pleased with the outcome of my color and cut. Keep up the good work, Jen!

fell into a land of bliss and happiness

Doug is a fantastic stylist and he has a vision! I trust his vision and I'm not afraid to speak up about my vision! He's fantastic. The staff is courteous. I would prefer a customer service agent answer the phone directly- that's my only complaint!

Always a pleasure. Thanks Jody.

Fabulous as always........Deirdre is very talented!!!!!

I love Michelle Tae, she is great with all my coloring needs and cuts, and will always let me know what will work and what will not. Funny and a great employee!!

She was absolutely wonderful. The best.


Roseanne is the best...and Katie, too. Love them both.

I absolutely love my new hairs style. Shelly is a true artist, she not only cuts and styles great but knows what looks good on you. And I have perfect eye brows thank to Jenny. These ladies are the best. Thank you, Maureen

Your salon in the east Bradford shopping plaza is run extremely well. The staff is accommodating and professional , as are all of the technicians. I highly recommend Avante salons as a premier salon in Chester county.

always pleasant when you arrive and leave Kara is my hair stylist recommended to by my previous hair stylist when she was moving out of state.hoping to try your services for a mani and pedi Terry Lyster

I was extremely happy with how Breanna cut my hair as she had never done it before as I usually have Kathleen. She did a great job and did it just like the picture I showed her.

Enjoyed the new decor Excellent service Lindsay is the best

Super wonderful haircut from Jody and kind treatment all around! Thank you so very, very much, Jody!

I'm slowly working through the services list for massages, facials, and body treatments. For holidays and birthdays I always ask for an Avante gift card. So far I've loved the Hot Stone Massage, Golden Touch Massage, Hydrating Body Scrub, Seaweed Body Wrap, and Express Facial. Nails are always done well (prefer the gel polish) and haircuts are always give me the look I want. The staff listens to hair concerns and find solutions that I love!

Shelly did a great job yesterday! Loved the cut!!

For some reason I received an appointment reminder but I did not make an appointment! you may want to see if there is a glitch in your system ;-) thank you

This service is wonderful, and Sue does a great job!!

Cat was wonderful. Did a fantastic job.

Wonderful!!! I've already scheduled 2 more appt.!!!

I come in there once a week. Please STOP sending these emails! My frequent visits should speak for my rating!


Service was thorough and attentive as always which is why I have been a client for so many years.

Alaina did an awesome job as she always does.

Kara is absolutely wonderful! She has been doing my hair for 3 years now and i still get stopped on the streets by people asking me where and who does my hair! Love love love her! She is honestly the best!!!

As always Jen Wolf makes me day! She informs me of my hairs condition, keeps it looking fab and hands out the right amount of chair side therapy. Our relationship has been going on for 12+ years and I plan keeping it that way!

I had a lot of trouble trying to call the salon in the Bradford shopping center to reschedule my appt today so I phoned the high street location . A very nice girl called me back and and was to have left a message for Aubree Holman. The salon has closed and guess what no return phone call. I have to say that I love your salon but the receptionists have on numerous occasions been the shortcoming to your salon. Calls don't get answered, I have received calls that I am late for an appointment when I in fact wasn't . I have tried to get an appt to have my nails down only to learn that the nail stylist was not given a message until a week later. Perhaps the owner of the salon should look into this further. I never see an owner presence at the salon and previous survey responses have not provided any feedback. Thank you for the opportunity to provide comment.

Hi Kara Larkin is truly a wonderful hair stylists. I am always so very pleased with her out standing working experience. Thank you, Kara Clare Wood

She was the best and the massage was awesome. I am coming back. Front desk not necessarily on top of things, they said initially that an Emily does not work there. Imagine how I felt when I thought my appointment was a sham.

Excellent service with Brooke. Receptionists do an excellent job, as well.

Stephanie was great!! I went to Stephanie because Kathleen is on maternity leave and I was nervous to go to someone different but she was fabulous!!

Keep up the good work.

Holly is the best. It is one place I get to relax.

Kara makes my experience incredible everytime I come to the salon. It is apparent that she treats every client like her number one priority and it really makes a difference. I always look forward to my pampering session!


wonderful experience

Trust Jody completely. NEVER disappointed

Love my haircut.

I am a loyal client of Daria's. Since Daria has been out on medical leave, I have tried a couple of different nail technicians both within and outside of Avante (I have had 2 seriously bad manis since Daria's leave). I can confidently say that Johanna does a terrific job and that if I were not a client of Daria's, Johanna would be my choice. Her quality, interpersonal skills and expertise are terrific. Kudos to her for jumping in and taking great care of Daria's clients. Nancy Shoudy

My hairdresser, Holly tries very hard to accomodate. The power was out but the shop in Exton was opened. She called me to tell me to go to the Exton shop for my app. She would see me there. She called back a few min. later to say to come to the Braford shop. All this was done around 8:45 in the am. Besides, always giving me great service with my hair,she goes above and beyond in other ways. That's why I've been with her for 23yrs!

Great job!

Everyone is wonderful at this salon. My stylist is the best - great to talk to and incredibly good at what she does - I have been all over the main line and center city to maintain my hair. Prices are reasonable. The salon is clean, they offer wine, tea, coffee and light snacks - very considerate when you are sitting in a chair for over 2 1/2 hours. One thing that would make things better is to streamline payments. In this day and age few people carry cash. I am always racing to the apt and don't have time to stop and get some. I wish we could add the tips onto the credit card receipt, I would be inclined to tip more because every time I use their atm, I feel fleeced by the charge. It would be an added level of service in my opinion.

Jen B is the best stylist ever! Love my hair!

Always is professional and is an expert with color. She is an asset to your org.

love the way Michelle does my hair

Steph did my highlights and they look great. I love going to Steph she is so sweet and does a great job.

As always, I am thrilled with my hair. Theresa listens to what I think I want, adds her suggestions and then combines that. I love my new shorter cut with the fresh full head blond highlights. On top of that, the other staff is friendly and helpful and the salon is clean and always changing to be kept clean, comfortable and chic.

I've had first class service and very pleased with my hair cut each time. I love that everyone dresses in black but not the same. IM not sure of the best way to get there from the Exton Mall but I got great directions when I called. You have a very happy client who would recommend Avante to any one looking for a new stylist and salon. I am not sure what oother services you have since you are a spa.

Great service love Michele she is athe best! Hair looks great

Great pedicure - relaxing!

The front staff greets you with a smile. Appointment times are honored. Checkout is easy and pleasant. It's all good there.

Excellent service with Breanna.

Excellent, as always.

Katy has helped me transition my hair while growing it back. She does incredible cut and color and I always makes me feel great. All of the staff are so friendly. Highly recommend!!!

This was hands down the best massage I've ever had! She was friendly and very professional, I could tell Kat knew exactly what to do to work on my very sore muscles. I've already recommended her to family and friends and am looking forward to scheduling another massage with Kat soon.

love my stylist. Alaina is friendly, supportive, engaging...always the right balance. Thank you.

This was the first time since going to Avante for the past 15 or more years that I actually thought this would be my last. Roseanne, Daria and Brook have always been wonderful, I love visiting with each of them while they provide the service I need. I love them as family. My complaint is the front desk. Usually the girls at the front desk are very helpful. However, today I had an encounter with Alania (sp.), it was as though I was in her way. I had to change my July appointment from one week to the next and she spoke to me a in very stern and unfriendly manner. It to all I could not to let her know how very rude she was. I understand that with Daria out, scheduling is hard on everyone but she did not need to take her frustration out on me. Thanks to Lucia stepping and doing my mani and pedi on the day Roseanne is doing hair, I will continue getting my services at Avante. Ellen Boudreaux

Always a pleasure with Alaina...........

Great service, as always! Kim is amazing, very helpful and honest.

Kathleen is an excellent hairdresser and always does a great job.

Disappointed I had to go to to another salon to get a pedicure. Lydsay always gives me the best hair cut.

I swear I love her so much that I don't want to tell anyone about her so that I can still get an appt!!! Xozo Love your salon K

I swear I love her so much that I don't want to tell anyone about her so that I can still get an appt!!! Xozo Love your salon K

I love Avante. I was new to West Chester and looking for a new salon. I tried a Groupon and loved my first experience with Kathleen so much that I have been coming back ever since and it's been three years. I have also used several of the spa services and have loved every one.

Love Haley! I can be very picky when it comes to my eyebrows ( they can be a challenge to shape) and Haley keep them cleaned up and shaped perfectly! She is also a delight to visit with. Always has a smile on her face and is very gentle with her treatment. Sincerely, Susan K.

Denise was extremely nice and it was a very relaxing experience. I will definitely be back.

Super wonderful!!, I am so grateful for Jody's expertise! I love my new haircut! Thank you so much!!!

wonderful as always, shampooing by Rebecca also nice, thanks

As always it was a pleasure to visit Avante. Kara L. is always gracious and knowledgeable and does a great job with my Brazillian. My daughter is now going to her for cut and color and is thrilled! Always keeps us coming back.

As always the staff was courteous and prompt. Doug was his usual outgoing self and did a fantastic job making me look neat and manicured. Thank you.

I was on a waitlist to see my stlylist because I never book when I should, and Kara is so good that she's always booked for weeks in advance. I was so excited when I received a call this morning that she had a cancellation in the afternoon. The girl I spoke to on the phone was fun and bubbly and totally made my day. Kara was great and gave me a Brazilian blowout and a trim. I had so much fun with her today and she made me look like a model. I can't wait to come back in for a color!

Aubrey was great. My father died last night and she fit me in to do my hair. So grateful for her kindness. Jeanne

Always excellent services.

Best haircut ever!

Best haircut ever!

I come in like me and leave a new woman!

I come in like me and leave a new woman!

Good price, quick service, expert staff.

I always have a great hair day when I know I will be seeing Jenn- and that's before my hair cut and color! Jenn has benn my stylist for years and barring a huge financial implosion of the world, will be for a few more. She is the best!!!!!!


Always look forward to getting my hair styled by Doug. Thanks for a relaxing morning!

As always, Leslie worked her magic on my tresses. I always look forward to our appointments and leave feeling like a million bucks. Thanks, Leslie - you are pure talent! PS. Those new chairs in the color room are TERRIBLE. NO LUMBAR SUPPORT! As a person who suffers with lower back issues, sitting in this chair for more then 5 minutes is torture. They might looks "cool" but my back hurt the rest of the day!

Roseanne is a wonderful stylist!
