The two exquisite potted plants outside, which were decorated for winter, drew me into the salon. Itialian opera music wafted through the air. Gino was very welcoming to me as a walk in. The atmosphere was very relaxing. Maria was a little abrasive at first, but she warmed up as time went on. She cut my hair like a true artist. FLAWLESSLY. I trust her eye for detail. I was impressed that the salon has their on line of products, I purchased the moisturizing shampoo, and it smells wonderful! I will return to Bavaro for sure.
