I have gotten my hair cut twice at Avant Garde and have had a great experience both times. They do a great job of achieving the look/style I want while also doing what's best for my hair type. The prices are the best I've come across for such a high quality experience/cut. The availability is also something I love, they aren't completely booked months in advance which makes planning my haircut around my life much easier. 10/10 recommend!

I'm kinda tempted to NOT leave a stellar review, because I don't want it to be tough for me to book future appointments... But I'll go ahead and say that this is without question one of the best salons in Gainesville. The owner clearly has high standards, and it shows in all aspects of the business.All team members are incredibly friendly, helpful, and professional, at every step. Scheduling is spot-on, and effortless. The salon is clean, welcoming, and comfortable - and the complimentary beverages are much appreciated.Beth is simply a rock-star - the best stylist that I've met in (literally) decades. She knows her stuff, and loves her work. Takes time to understand her clients, and offer excellent suggestions (if you want them). I feel so lucky to have finally found this salon!

Fantastic experience. Have been using this salon for years. Very inclusive and respectful. Wonderful with color and style. They pamper you with complimentary wine, stress relieving aromas and hot towel wraps… love this place.

Ive been coming to this salon for over a year now. My first couple experiences were not the best I will say but its because I did not have the right person working with me. After finding Beth I have been so happy after leaving. Beth understands my hair type and has helped my bring it back to life. After everything my hair has been through I finally feel that I have that hot girl hair after leaving. If you are consistent in the products they use at the salon while at home and follow the tips given you will be more than pleased with your hair. Ask for Beth if you have fine, thin, damaged hair and she will not disappoint! 💚💚

The space looks good staff is fine. I spent over 200 usd for a cezanne smoothing treatment for my medium length hair. It is not good enough or rather the product is not effective. You do not get any visible difference in your hair. It is no where close to a keratin treatment. It is a waste of time and money. My hairs were not damaging but I just needed to get them a bit smooth. After first wash they get back to their old form.

They were amazing! Mario is an amazing hairdresser, who knows how to do short asymmetrical cuts with razors and thinning shears! He made me look amazing and always does. He is also exceptionally kind and the staff at Avant Guarde is wonderful! Donnavan is always Cheerful and helpful in all the aspects of the salon. Overall I’ve never been to such a wonderful and professional salon with the best people! I’d recommend them to everyone! You will never go anywhere else!

I had my hair cut about a year ago and I should have said then that the cut was perfect! I had a consultation yesterday for my wedding up-do and I am feeling confident about it! I really appreciated the stylist suggesting I come in with clean dry hair a couple weeks before my wedding to get a trim, and in exchange for washing and blow drying she would instead do a test run of my up-do. ALSO, I got some Aveda Restore shampoo and treatment I can ALREADY so a huge improvement to my straight hair.

Avant Garde is incredible. I’m super picky when it comes to hair salons & this place meets my every need. Michelle is my stylist & one of my favorite people ever. She routinely transforms my disastrous unmanageable hair into the soft & vibrant look that I’ve always been aiming for. She’s brilliant at what she does, very sweet & exceptionally funny. I recommend this salon to everyone because I’ve personally had such great results. It’s a very friendly atmosphere & you can feel assured that your hair is in the best hands possible. 10/10! 💜

Brittany gave me EXACTLY the cut I wanted - and checked in with me every step of the way. If you want a precision short haircut, she is the BEST! Also, the salon is peaceful and calm, definitely an inclusive environment. I finally found my GNV salon!!

Getting my hair cut by Leigh Ann at Avant Garde is an experience that always surpasses expectations; I always get home happy with The visit and my hair cut.
