Local Spotlight 4

Welcome to Avalon Salon and Day Spa

“It’s a great day at Avalon Salon and Day Spa!” From our greeting when you call to reserve an appointment, to your first visit at the salon, our mission is to create a relaxing haven for you to unwind, to look and feel more beautiful. Located at Deer Park Town Center and open seven days each week, our motivated staff is the secret to our growth over the last 13 years. Each day begins with a fun “huddle” to get our team ready to provide excellent services throughout the day. Our service providers are inspired and passionate, highly skilled…and fun.

I can’t even begin to explain the pride I had in our company and the respect for our team when I received an email acknowledging that Avalon was being recognized again for 2015 in Salon Today, the industry trade magazine that awards the “Top 200” U.S. Salons in the annual competition. For 11 consecutive years, Avalon has been recognized for growth, advanced education, philanthropy and more. Avalon values community outreach, and when we look at customer service, we also look at community service.

Co-owner Shyla and our hair team are fired up about the new looks in hair for spring/summer 2015. From the latest in men’s cuts to special occasion hair for Prom, they will help you discover how to turn heads and create wow. Reserve your appointments today for upcoming events like Mother’s Day, prom and graduation.

Our makeup artists are so excited to share AVEDA’s RARE BLOOM spring 2015 makeup collection with you. Whether you want to refresh or have a complete makeover, they will assist you in finding your new look. With hands on training during your makeup application, you will learn techniques and discover a beautiful new you. We offer “finishing touches” as a complimentary mini makeup service to enhance any service. This allows you to have fun and change up your look after every Avalon visit.

We know you have many options on where to shop for nail services. What’s new in nails at Avalon? Our busy nail department is filled with the latest color palettes by OPI, Essie, Relish and Cuccio. The Cinderella Collection by Gelish is the hottest Spring 2015 nail color trend. Gelish offers a longer lasting manicure. Avalon’s Nail team does so much more than painting nails. They take pride in our high sanitation standards and take several classes throughout the year to stay current with trends and best services. They educate customers on the best products for hand and foot care, and offer relaxing massage and hydration during all services. Guests often comment that they love our welcoming approach and enjoy their services even more because they never feel rushed.

We invite you to relax and balance your mind, body and spirit in our spa. Each service begins with an AVEDA sensory journey ritual. Three essential oils are presented to discover which aroma best lifts your spirit on that day. Aromas create new lasting memories, or may trigger a moment in time by channeling the brains limbic system. The next step to each facial or massage is a relaxing aroma foot soak. One of our new favorite aromas is AVEDA’s Stress fix. Is your stress level high? A few deep breaths of this lavender infused oil will calm you down.

Giving back is one of our core values, and we build our team on that foundation. In the end, our customers are inspired to join in our efforts. Just by doing what we do naturally, we have become known in our community as the premiere salon and day spa that supports our community and serves with a caring heart.

We use exclusively AVEDA organic products, and offer them for guest home care. We are committed to the holistic approach to beauty and wellness, and believe a “green salon” is not just a trend to follow but a way of life. We believe in leading the path to environmentalism by aligning ourselves with the AVEDA mission, and searching for new ways to improve on our responsibility to lead others to join us.

It’s all about the experience. Whether it is a neck and back chair massage; stress-relieving scalp massage; sensory journey of AVEDA’s aromatic oils, or makeup touch-up. We never skip steps when it comes to meeting AVEDA’s signature added-value services.

At Avalon Salon and Day Spa, we strive to make each visit memorable. Every time.
