Stylist: Jenn-marie Finkelstein

I loooovveee my hair cut. I had been hesitant to get my 4b hair cut but decided to try Jean-marie after reading the reviews. She is absolutely amazing and told me so much about how to properly take care of my hair. She will not disappoint!

Jenn-Marie is simply the best.  I am someone who has always straightened my hair and recently decided to embrace my curls.  Jenn-Marie gave me a beautiful cut and taught me how to maintain it

After reading some recommendations on here, I made an appointment with Jenn-Marie, and WOW. I have heat damaged hair somewhere between 3b and 3c, and she definitely knew how to cut it. I came in and showed her some pictures of what I was looking for, and she looked at them and at my hair, and gave me exactly what I wanted! She was very communicative, and made sure that I was happy and sure what was going on the entire time. She suggested that I think about highlights, and wasn't at all pushy. I decided to go for it, and Vanessa gave me some beautiful honey colored highlights that left my hair as soft as before! Wonderful staff, wonderful salon. Definitely a little pricey ($80 for cut, $50 for highlights) but worth every cent. When it's time for a touch-up, I'll be back.

I highly recommend Jenn-Marie. I was fortunate to stumble upon Avant and Jenn-Marie when I first moved to Austin, and I have been loyal to her ever since (~10 years). She knows how to bring the best potential out of curly hair and is comfortable and enthusiastic working with curls. Love her!

Jenn-Marie always listens to my preferences as to what kind of look I want my hair to have. She listens to what issues I've had with my curls, if any, and works to make sure the cut minimizes frizz while either maximizing or minimizing volume as I choose. She also keeps up to date with the latest Aveda products and techniques to best suit curly hair. Love her!

Cindy is amazing with curly hair and has taught me so much! I used to drive to Dallas to get my hair cut until I found her. She no longer works at Avant, and is now at Gallery of Salons (independent stylists) at Northcross mall. You really should give her a call, you WON'T be sorry!!! Her new number is: 350-4880.
