I must thank Avatar Salon. If it wasn't for their stylist Tiffany Wade giving me 3rd degree burns on my scalp due to her failure to rinse my relaxer out in time because she was too busy talking a mile a minute to the other stylists, I never would have decided to stop relaxing my hair. I now have 19 month old locs and they are thick, healthy and growing very rapidly. Tiffany is somewhat personable but she's too scatter-brained to be trusted with chemicals. What adds insult to injury is that she has long beautiful hair but fails to care for her clients' hair the way she cares for her own.

I love this place. I would reccommend this salon to everyone I know. The people are friendly and extremely attentive to customer needs. The stylists are highly skilled, artistic, and passionate about what they do. The owner is cool, down to earth, an overall nice guy.....the manager is even talented and sweet and tends to customers needs as well. I go in for a cut every two weeks and although the prices are high I dont mind paying for the exceptional service. I love the crew cut they give me....I havent been able to find anyone that can cut it like this............take a chance and see what u think......but imma keep coming back :)

By far one of the worst salons I have been to in the DC/MD/VA area. My hair looked horrible not to mention I was $140 in the whole afer the service and had to pay another salon to do it over 2 days later. Extremely disappointed. Do not believe the hype!!!! A waste of hard earned money.??

You know, for the most part, I like Avatar. They are extremely expensive but I was satisfied with the outcome. The shop talk can be unprofessional and the wait time long. I would say, If you can look past this and you're only concerned with the hair care - you should go. Warning .. don't schedule an appointment if you're not prepared to spend the rates they charge. I consistently pay between $75 - $150 on every visit depending on what I'm having done. Bruce is great! He listens, he consults, and he performs - nothing negative there. My 2 cents!

I have been going to Avatar for well over 4 years. The prices are competitive and he uses quality products on your hair. Can you find cheaper prices? Yes but if you have processed hair and have color -- and you want to keep hair on your head, you better make sure the people who tend to your hair are qualified. The people at Avatar are more than qualified.

My stylist is Vaughn and I think he does a great job. Being new to the area I was nervous about having someone new do my perm but I have no concerns. He is rather slow and the prices are high but so is everything else in this area.

First I wish to say that I read all of the reviews. I have been attending Avatar for one full year now, and I will continue to go back. I read the reviews about the gossip. I have never, ever heard the staff gossip about people who work there or go there. They talk about celebrities. What is the problem with that? The clients get involved. For the most part, they are not loud with it. I would not call the salon ghetto. They strive to be very professional.They offer clients wine, which is not a bad thing. Yes, the prices can be a little high, but they are very current with the styles, and take good care of your hair. I think their may be one stylist who could use some proper customer service etiquette (and actually the other stylists know who he is to, lol), but overall they are all very sweet, and not fake at all. Let me tell you. Try and find reputable black salon in upper northwest/silver spring, with down-to-earth stylist. They are few and far between. They have never made me feel uncomfortable. If you have a problem, you tell Bruce, and he will surely handle it.There you have it. Two cents from a reliable source.

I went to Avatar summer of 2008 and the staff are ghetto, they gossip all the time, they drink wine while styling your hair, the prices are outrageous for a perm and style. They should relocate to the hood for the services they provide.

If you want upscale hair dos this is not the place, just a big debt to your pockets.

First, I made an appointment and the owner, Bruce Johnson, had to call me and cancel it because they didn't have the products that were needed to do my curly perm (The FERM Perm by Avlon, Inc) in stock. Then I went in the next week and had my hair done by Tiffany Wade. While she is really personable and talking to her was great, my hair looked awful when it was finished. I even had a couple of the steps redone the very next week, and it still looked awful!!! I used to do the curly perm myself at home using Wave Nuveau, which looked 10 times better than what Tiffany did to me at Avatar using the FERM perm (a more quality product), and of course I paid through the nose to have it done there. VERY dissapointed, especially because I am a single mom, and I wanted to spend the money to make myself look and feel good, but I could have just kept my money and done the process myself. A FAR cry from how well my curly perm looked using the FERM perm when I had it done at Macy's Ecotage Salon and Spa in Cincinnati, Ohio. Aljeana, I am making my appointment now for May, hopefully you can help me!!!!

This salon is one of the most unorganized salons that I have been to in a while. The service was severly UNACCEPTABLE!! I received a press and curl and my hair ended up just as nappy and curly as when I walked in. I spoke with the owner of the salon, Bruce who lied to my face and wanted me to pay the whooping $65.00 for my incomplete service!! I would not recommend this place to my worst enemy!!!

I recently went to this salon for a trim only (not a hair cut) and paid $75. I had been to this salon once before and was told a hair trim was $30.......I guess not! Not to mention, the hair stylists made me feel really uncomfortable with unnecessary gossip.

PROS:
CONS: price

Bruce Johnson the owner of Avatar is the best hairstylist in the business. Bruce is a master haircolorist and is very knowledgable regarding the latest trends. The staff at Avatar is always professional and you are always seen at the appointment time you are given.
