A Chat with Luke at Avant Garde Salon
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Small and inviting salon with a friendly, experienced staff. Located conveniently near downtown Columbia without all the hustle and bustle.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Making people beautiful is my passion. I love working with people and getting to know them while transforming their hair into a work of art.
What do you love most about your job?
I really enjoy the creative freedom that working in a salon allows. Every day and every client is different. Being able to transform someone’s look or just enhancing the natural beauty already there is very rewarding.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
I had a client that came in for a cut and style who had not had her hair done in a while. We had a long conversation and after finishing her hair, I turned her around and she began to cry. She said she had never loved her hair until this day and that was the most rewarding tip I have ever received.
