I love, love, love this salon, from the stylists & receptionists to the décor and "vibe"!! I had a balayage, which is a fairly new and very trendy technique, and my stylist, Brittany, did an amazing job! She is very detail oriented and thorough, as well as being very warm and personable! This is an esthetically beautiful salon with an incredibly talented staff that everyone in Wilmington should experience!
What a lovely review! Thank you so much Kristine! Brittany has proven to be a fantastic addition to our Wilmington team and we are thrilled that you enjoyed your visit! We really appreciate your comments and look forward to seeing you again soon! Enjoy your results and thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts about your experience at Van Davis Aveda!
Wonderful salon. Paris is excellent with color and cut.
I went in for a spa pedicure and an essential manicure. My pedicure was wonderful! However, I am super upset with how my manicure turned out.
The nail tech noticed that I already had a shellac polish on my hands that needed to come off. I asked her if that was a problem, and she said "no". It wasn't until it came time for me to pay when I found out that taking off the shellac made my $27 manicure jump up to $40. I was upset that the tech didn't mention this when I asked if it would be a problem to remove, but I paid it anyways. What got me really angry though, is that once I got home and into better light, where I could really see the job she did, my nails look terrible! There are still bumps from left over shellac underneath my new polish. She also didn't get the polish on my nails evenly: the color doesn't extend to the edges. The ends of my some nails also need to be re-filed! I could have made peace with paying extra for the shellac removal, if only it were done completely! Now I need to go somewhere else to have a whole new manicure done.
Kaitlyn, as usual, did a great job with my haircut and color. She also gave me a hand and head massage which is always wonderfully relaxing. Always happy with the clean and pleasant atmosphere at Van Davis.
