Let me say, I went to Avant Salon in South Park Meadows! But since that one isn't listed, I'll review them this way. I saw Jeanie for hair and makeup, she did AWESOME! For $150 I received an intricate updo, makeup application and false eyelash application. What a deal! It was going to be quite a bit more expensive with LucieMarie. I wasnt quite sure what I wanted with my hair but said I wanted it low and loose. She did something that lasted all day and night, no touching up needed, and it was more beautiful than I could have imagined. Seriously. And I was going to pin a flower in my hair, but didnt have the flower as she was doing my hair, Jeanie told my maid of honor where it would look best and exactly how to pin it without messing anything up. She is lovely, and is getting married herself in April of 2011!

Avant Salon SAVED Me!!!!!!
I had a wedding party (me, two mothers, two bridesmaids) booked at Anne Kelso when it suddenly shut down a week and a half before my wedding. (I am also from out of town and was flying into Austin to get married so finding another salon was not as simple as going somewhere else I knew about)

i called Avant Salon, they were able to squeeze all 5 of us in and everyone looked fantastic!

THANKS AVANT!!!!!!
