I first discovered Avanti from Francesca's Craigslist ad. I was attracted to her ad not only for the major discount she was offering but she posted the most pictures (of her work and not herself) which set hers apart from the others. My first experience with Avanti was amazing!!! I vowed myself to NEVER use another cheap box of color from the store or use another hair stylist. 5 years later, and I'm still using Francesca. In five years I have not had one bad experience with her service or her personality. I was no doubt peeved by a recent review I read here on Google and I wanted to set the record straight. First off, writing a negative review years after the fact gives me the impression there is a much bigger issue with the author of the review, rather than the hair stylist (Francesca) in this case. I had to laugh at the phrase, "I don't cut uneven hair," that was supposively stated by Francesca. I was inspired enough by Francesca to attend cosmetology schooling and there is no way a hair stylist would ever make a comment like that. I love Francesca and the great work she puts on clients. As a hair stylist, her clients are her walking advertisement; therefore; YES, Francesca will take her time and perfect the service. I have always felt I got my moneys worth and some at Avanti. I have sent three friends to her whom would also agree.

I needed a haircut. I got online to see what was in Oregon City and found Avanti Hair Salon had excellent reviews. I called and they were able to fit me in. Jessica did a great job and was very friendly and considerate to my needs. I am very happy with the cut I received and encourage any guys in Oregon City to call Avanti and get your hair did like I did.

I had been looking for a very long time to find just the right hair salon to style and color my hair. I was very happy and pleased when I found Avanti Hair Salon just down the hill from where I live. Since finding Avanti I have been coming to Francesca for over three years now and have never been disappointed. She is kind and professional and is always keeping up to date on the latest techniques and trends with hair. Francesca always goes above and beyond to get you in and taken care of. She is my hair guru. I love this salon!

I would definitely recommend NOT going here. Stylist was distracted the entire time and took off over 2inches when I specifically asked to keep the length. After the 5 min cut she did not even blow dry or style my hair. Worst cut experience i've ever had. Yes hair grows, but it was an awful experience and I will now grow my hair out for 2 MORE years.

I went to Avanti several times in a row some time ago. Each time I was happy with the result of Francesca's work. However, absolutely each time Francesca was very late to my appointment (30 minutes one time), seemed incredibly distracted and took forever to do my hair. Main thing why she took forever was because she would take on walk-ins as well. So for example, why applying color to my hair, she'd stop half-way to talk to a walk-in client and start doing her hair. Mention that Francesca never asked me if I was OK with her spending time of my pre-scheduled appointment on someone else, or if I had a whole day to sit around and wait for her. As a result, I ended up spending over 4 hours at that place once!! Honestly, 4 hours! That's too extreme and disrespectful considering that each time I made my appointment in advance, was always on time and drover from another city to that salon. I referred a couple of people there too after my first visit (silly me, I was hoping that first time something just didn't go very well in Francesca's schedule and wouldn't happen again). Both of my friends had very similar experiences and don't go there any more. Very disappointed.

I have been thinking about writing this for over a year and finally decided since I'm still upset, it's time. I went in specifically asking for the back of my hair to be texturized and not to take off any length at all. I was in my 3rd trimester and it's June and I need to save my ponytail!! I had reached a point of being over my short, funky, asymmetrical bob and wanted it to grow out but the back was bulky. After telling Francesca what I wanted, she replied with "I don't cut uneven hair" Yes, at that point I should have left but with having to arrange a babysitter and leave with dripping wet hair, I hoped for the best. After further discussion, I thought we had agreed on leaving my asymmetrical bob alone, however, she cut at least 4 inches off to make the most horrible haircut I've had since 4th grade. My hair went from my shoulders to above my chin and I had asked to NOT take off ANY length. I said what about the ponytail I needed you to save, she said, "oh, I forgot about that" Then she put my hair up on top of my head and said "I could do this just like the girl from The Flintstones". Yes, I'm in my 30s, a working professional, pregnant with my 2nd child and she just said I can do my hair like Pebbles. I haven't cried over a haircut since I was 10 but I think I still get tears thinking about the year of recovery it took from this. Also, while I was there she asked me 3 times, "How did you hear about us?" (tacky) and repeated other questions over and over. CLEARLY NOT LISTENING TO ME because she was trying to help the other stylist fix the other customer's messed up color job, answer the phone, try to start other walkins, and keep her next appointment from walking out. I highly DO NOT recommend a stylist that cuts hair the way she wants and not the way you want.

I found Francesca through my sister-in-law, who has similar hair to mine. My hair had been two-toned for a long time, as I was trying to grow it out with more of my natural color. Francesca was able to do a complete color correction, and make my hair look awesome! She does AMAZING things with hair! She's fun, and not one of those stylists that try to talk you into something that's not good for you. She actually listens to what you want. I'm so glad I got the referral! Thank you Francesca!

Avanti elevates Oregon City! Francesca & Sal are both awesome. I've been going to Francesca for 3+ years & she's consistently good. I see her once a month and have never been disappointed. Our whole family goes to her and we are all happy with our results. The prices are very reasonable. The salon has an classy, yet comfortable feeling to it. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Avanti to anyone. They are artists.
