Women's Hairdressing Wellingborough

Your hair says a lot about you. Make sure it’s saying the right things.

At any given time, you’ve made a decision about how you want to look – businesslike and professional, interesting and original, neat and respectable, soft and casual . . . the list goes on.

You’ve also made decisions about the degree to which these visual characteristics are part of a consistent image or part of a portfolio of different styles which you adjust according to the occasion.

You hair plays a huge role in the image you portray. You want to get it right.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cutting & Styling

Do you have a style which works or do you need a change?

Whether you want to maintain and make the most of your current style, or find a fresh new look, our experienced stylists are here to help.

They’ll talk with you about what you would like and, probably more importantly, what will work best for you once you leave the Avant Garde Salon.

Do you want a flexible style which you can change for different occasions? Or do you want something which requires the minimum of effort on a day to day basis? Of course you might want both.

Our stylists will work with you to create the look you want.

 

Highlighting

Adding subtle tones or bold flashes, highlights are a perfect introduction to colour.

 

Colouring

Whether you want a gentle change or plan to reflect a wild and outgoing personality, we can create just the colour you’re looking for.

 

Perming

If you’d like more curl, more volume or more movement in your hair, a permanent wave could be the answer.

Create the hair you wish you’d been born with, with little fuss or mess. Perms aren’t what they used to be and we use only high quality products which will care for your hair as well as providing the results you want.

Add soft or spiral curls for a look which reflects your personality.

Our skilled and experienced stylists will be with you from design to delivery of the look you want.

 

Paul Mitchell – your very own take-home stylist

We can’t be with you every day, but we can help you ban bad-hair days with Paul Mitchell’s fabulous range of products. Our stylists will advise you about the products which can help you to get the most from your style in between your visits to Avant Garde.

It’s not all about the women at Avant Garde.

We don’t underestimate how much your hairstyle is part of who you are, how you see yourself, and the image you want to project to others.

Whether you want something straightforward and simple, clean and cropped, or funky and fun, (or you plan to switch between styles according to 

occasion) our experienced stylists can deliver the look you’re after.

Both in the workplace and our social lives, our hair speaks volumes.

Our stylists are expert in men’s hair and will work with you to create something which reflects your personality, your career and your attitude to grooming.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cutting & Styling

Most men have short hair, so the quality of your cut is critical – there’s nowhere to hide.

Even if you want a natural look and you don’t want to fuss over your hair at home, you need a cut which is tailored to produce exactly those results.

Not only will a professional cut make you look good on the day of your appointment, it will also keep its shape for longer, so whatever you’re doing you’ll stay looking sharp and well groomed.

 

Mitch aftercare, from Paul Mitchell

Paul Mitchell products WORK. It’s all we use in the salon, and it’s what we recommend you use at home – so the style you leave the salon with is the style and condition you can enjoy until your next visit to Avant Garde.

From shampoos and conditioners, waxes, pomades and gels, Paul Mitchell products help to create and maintain the look you want.
