Mudra is great and nice to talk with! I loved her overall service that she did on my mom. It was a good experience and she offered a lot of advice for what color highlights she should get. Totally recommend her for haircuts she’s super fast!

This time at Avalon Institute, I came in for a vibrant coloring with the wonderful hairdresser Erica! We started with my natural hair color that was previously lightened at another salon. Our first step was to lighten the base to create an even color in order to create such a beautiful and vibrant ocean blue/green. After the lightener, I had a wonderful shampoo/wash, whereafter we got to set the final color! Once the color was applied, she trimmed my hair upon my request to help maintain a healthy head of hair, and got to do some cool short buzzing on the sides of my head. All in all, Erica is a fantastic hairdresser and I am left feeling incredibly impressed! If you want any color done, be sure to come visit Erica at the Avalon Institute- she is very friendly and does a fantastic job with everything in between!
