I first visited Avante in August 2014 and I'm not sure why I delayed for so long. Kara Larkin, a personal friend ahs been a stylist there for years and numerous close girlfriends of mine have consistently gone to Kara. Living in Roxborough/Manayunk there are plenty of salons to choose from and I have tried them all. It wasn't until I started working in West Chester that I reached out to Kara and Avante to give it a shot. I LOVE how Avante has numerous ways to reach out to them, the online booking and also calling features are great especially for someone like me who works in an office all day. Beside that, let's me real, Kara is literally a gem and an extremely talented individual and if I must say, Avante is lucky to have her! When I walked in Kara hugged me and was genuinely excited to work with me and sat down to talk about the look I wanted to achieve. She went above and beyond my expectations and I didn't need to spend my life savings. Even though she is a friend, Kara was more than professional and I also noted the other stylists were professional in their demeanor as well. The salon was gorgeous and the girls at the front desk were warm and inviting. I'm calling today to book my second appointment for my touch up. Thank you Kara you are unbelievable and keep rocking out and thank you Avante for keeping her and the salon!

Moved into the West Chester area less than year ago and needed to find hair salon. When researching salons, Avante came up with excellent reviews so decided to try it out and I'm glad I did. My hairstylist was great, very personable and easy to talk to. I would definitely recommend this salon to anyone!

A friend of mine had gone to Avante for years and always spoke so highly of her stylist (Alaina). Alaina has a months-long waiting list (always a good sign) so I made my appointment with one of Avante's newer stylists, Shelly. Shelly was amazing! She was so personable, easy to talk to, relatable, and most importantly, GOOD AT HER JOB. I wasn't 100% sure how I wanted to get my hair cut, so I put the ball in her court, and she did an amazing job. I've been circulating salons and stylists in the tri-county area for years trying to find somewhere that makes me want to return, and I made my 2nd appointment with Shelly on the spot. Their prices are also very competitive, which was nice (I've paid upwards of $100 for a haircut in the city) and they also gave me coupons and samples when I was leaving. These small but resonating gestures showed me how much Avante cherishes their client relationships. Not only is Avante good to their clients, but they are good to the community too. I recently got an email from them that they are holding donations for a charity walk in Chester County, which also speaks so highly of Avante as a company. I highly recommend Avante!

I love the Avante in West Chester! I followed my stylist Angie there and am very happy with their services. Everyone there is very friendly/welcoming. I never have any issues making an appointment and if I ever have any questions about services or recommendations who ever answers the phone is always very patient and helpful. The place itself is beautiful, very clean. As I've said, I've been getting my hair cut there for awhile but I have also had my hair done there for my cousin's wedding and a couple's massage. Both services were very nice and the staff that worked on me were really great! I would highly recommend the establishment and would also highly recommend Angie, although I'm sure whoever you got there would be great!

Avante did an excellent job. I just started going to the West Chester location. My sister-in-law and Mother-in-law both go there and had nothing but good things to say. I recently had my first visit and it was great I had to reschedule due to the weather and they were great to work with to handle that. Then I finally had my appointment and I love the work. They have so many services to offer. I had a cut and color by Shelly and she was awesome. The people there are really friendly and I am more than satisfied with my hair. I will definitely will be going back when the time comes. I would recommend this to anyone looking for somewhere to go for hair for a reasonable price and high quality.

I was recently at this location for a cut and facial. I had never been before, and I walked out very happy with each service. The cut was exactly what I was hoping for - she used a technique I hadn't seen done on my hair before. Everything turned out great. I hadn't had a facial in years, so that was both needed and very relaxing. She did an amazing job. I would come back for each service again.

My boyfriend and I bought the 'sweethearts escape' package for Valentines Day. We really enjoyed our massages from Kat and Kate who were really great! They specifically asked us which areas they should focus on and it was extremely relaxing. We also received express facials which were hardly 'express'. I figured the facials would be 15 minutes at most but they were at least 30-40 minutes. It was a great surprise! The last part of our package was to 'enjoy champagne and light refreshments over a soothing foot bath as you both relax'. We had a 5 minute foot bath but unfortunately there was no champagne or refreshments. It seemed as though this portion of the package was rushed along. The champagne and refreshments didn't ruin the trip for us but at the price of $365 (plus 20% tip), we were hoping to get everything we purchased. Understandably we came on a really busy day - Valentines Day - so they needed to move us in and out as quickly as possible. I feel we didn't get the attention we would have received on any other day of the week. I would hope that if we return, we would feel differently about this.

We had recently moved to the West Chester area and were still getting "settled-in" when my husband surprised me with a gift certificate to Avante. He had found Avante online and had read the many recommendations. My first experience was a hot stone massage and it was wonderful. The clean atmosphere, skill, and professionalism of the staff was exceptional. The second, and most recent trip to Avante was for a haircut. While the stylist was relatively young, she had a great personality and was able to produce results similar to the salon I had before we moved. One aspect that stood out the most about the salon visit was that the stylist did not try to push any products.
