This is not my first visit to Avantgarde in the Destin Commons but, it is my first appointment with Dusty. I have already booked 2 more appointments before I return to Canada in a few months time so, obviously, I am a happy customer. The Salon is small and welcoming. Dusty met me at the Reception area and then proceeded to his station. He took the time to discuss all aspects of my hair before washing, conditioning and cutting it. He pointed out the products used but did not pressure me to buy, which I appreciated. I went in looking like the senior citizen snowbird that I am but I came out looking years younger with my great hair cut. Thanks Dusty.

Amazing!! Communicative, friendly, responsive, and he gave me my perfect haircut. He had to have cut off about 7-8 inches, and I haven't had short hair in years, so seeing the change wasn't exactly unusual, but he dyed my hair into a perfect red gradient, and i am very happy with it. i would definitely choose Dusty again in the future!!

Dusty Brooks is a fabulous stylist and colorist and I would recommend his services to anyone who wants a hairdresser that will listen and also advise on what is best for you.

Dusty consistently does an outstanding job with my hair and I have been going to him for 3 years.

Highly recommend him.

Sara P is amazing. As an over 40, natural ashy blonde, but now with some (ok, a lot) of grey, I struggle with being too light not to look washed out,, but also light enough that the root growth isn't so noticeable. I also need the services to be economical since I have to cover my grey every 4-5 weeks. Sara really listens and understands the concerns of her clients. She knows what looks good on certain skin colors, and has given me a great lived-in blond with a lot of depth. She is touching up the roots every 5 weeks, then after about 12-16 weeks, we'll freshen up the blonde. I have thin, fine hair, so this svhedule will help keep my hair healthy and it is something I can keep up time wise and financially. She has always given me a price before we start, even with options, which I really appreciate and their are no surprises at chevk-out. Her talent is immpecable and her sweet personality keep me as a regular client. Th salon itself is one of my favorites and everyone there is very personable and make you feel right at home. I hav refferred numorous friends there and will continue to do so.

Samantha is the best! She always does a super job and it is so hard to find someone who can cut curly hair!

We are glad you had a great experience, Louisa! Thank you!

Professional and Nice group of people! I've gone through a few hair stylist in the past year trying to find somebody that can do a simple dry cut and I have finally found somebody (Tyler) that does a great job!

Destin Animal Clinic

5 stars 101 reviews

While vacationing in Destin, my sweetest old man got a thorn-size hole in his eye (probably got too close to a bush while peeing). I googled vet clinics in Destin and the Destin Animal Clinic had great reviews. I called and the receptionist told me to come in 30 minutes (loved the quick appointment time!). Meghan (vet assistant) and Dr. Jim were so kind and gentle with my sweet boy. Dr. Jim stained his eye and we could clearly see the puncture. He prescribed antibiotics & pain drops and within a day, my boy was feeling better. The clinic was very clean, nicely decorated and well organized and the staff was super nice. Dr. Jim took time with me and TC, and didn't rush out to the next patient. He and Meghan treated me and TC with patience and kindness - not like I was just an 'out-of-town customer. We greatly appreciated their time and highly recommend Destin Animal Clinic!
