I followed Daryl from another salon to Avanti. He is a brilliant colorist. His keen eye and superior skill have me leaving with perfect shiny hair every time!

Nancy is great!

Rob is amazing. The best stylist, colorist, extensions, ever.

His finishing touch, the blow dry, is his incredible signature.

Rob knows how to bring out the best in anyone's hair.

I LOVE MY NEW HAIR!! Gina did an amazing job with fixing old highlights and trimming my ends. I couldn't be happier. She was super friendly and I'd gladly get another hair treatment with her.

Firstly, Brian is an actual angel. I feel the need to state this for many reasons, including his professionalism, creativity, kindness, and good sense of humor. I am not from Boston, but could not be happier with the way things turned out, arriving at his counter instead of my usual in Miami was a wonderful occurrence. A bit of background on how I got to Brian, I flew in from Miami to escape hurricane Irma the night before (arriving 10 hours before my appointment into the great city of Boston!), and my anxiety had been through the roof worrying about family and friends-- I am still in the middle of my move overseas, ending up in Boston with a few days to kill, and a few things to do, as I waited out the storm before my flight out to London.

Brian made me feel at home, he gave beyond acceptional service, and really relieved the immense weight from my shoulders, not only during my time at Avanti, but my experience with Brian made my entire day better. My haircut and experience with him made me feel lighter, happier, and overall, unstoppable! I love my new hair, but aside from how great it looks, it's important to note that Brian's skill level and creativity exceeds his career choice, and extends to his customer service and relationship building with clients. After my appointment with Brian, I felt invigorated, courageous, powerful, and had a bit of my self esteem back.

If I were staying in Boston, Brian would definitely be my go-to! Not only because he does beyond acceptional work, but because of how absolutely fantastic he is a human being.

My sincest thank you to Brian for all he's done for me, I know it may seem silly, but my experience with him at Avanti went beyond a haircut, and has left me ready for the next big chapter in my life. Thank you for being part of such an important transition!

Brian is the best. He is kind and patient and does an amazing job.

The salon itself is beautiful and the view is lovely as you are sitting at the color table.

Dr. Fox is the best. I've been a patient of hers for many years. Each time I visit her, she explains about the eye exam. I put my full faith and trust with her and would highly recommend her if you need an eye doctor or need to switch from your current doctor. Go see her!
