“I had a good experience at A & V for the color, conditioner, blowout package. It's been about 4 weeks and the grey coverage is still (desperately) holding on. They offer a variety services for all different types of hair. I have thick hair and some salons don't know how to do the blowout, which also requires a straight iron. She did a great job and the blowout lasted a while. I live in NYC, but no longer have to search for a Miami salon. I definitely recommend A&V. (But note, they can get busy on the weekends. Make an appointment early, or try to stop by during the week.)”
“The girls were awesome. They told me what color would work best with my hair and help me decide. (: I'll definitely come be coming back soon.”
