The summer dance card: four weddings, two reunions, and at least one pending encounter with the ex. Sounds like it’s time for a tress-to-impress makeover.
When the stakes are high, turn to the experts — like those at Avanti, a 25-years-strong Back Bay spot with a rock-solid roster of colorists and cutters. Those who bristle at attitude will chill out upon entering the glam but unpretentious space.
Regulars — and they are legion — praise the salon for its dexterity with diverse hair textures (curly, Asian), as well as the staff’s humble approach and vibrant sense of humor (avanti is, after all, a Hindi word for “modesty”). Brides-to-be can consult with wedding experts to decide on day-of looks; there’s even a styling service for hapless grooms. Pop in for cuts, straightening, extensions, or blonde highlights — one of Avanti’s specialties.
And look your best all season.
