REVIEWS

My hair was a mess. Hormone shifts & years of overusing heat tools had left it brittle and stripped of all lustre. Now, after trusting Ana to do whatever she thought best — my hair is healthy & curly & soft to the touch. Ana brought my hair back from the brink! She’s also a master of cut and color. I can wear my hair in its natural curl or go for the vavavoom blowout, and the cut/ color always look great. Ana’s simply AMAZING! And she just a lovely person to boot! Thank you, Ana! “Hair Day” is the BEST! I always walk out feeling like a rock star!

The salon was recommended by two friends and they were right. I have been going to the same hairdresser for the past 10 years and for the past year or so I haven’t been feeling the way you are supposed to feel after a haircut. Sammy was very kind and thoughtful and after cutting and drying my hair I had again that awesome moment when you feel “amaizing”! I will definitely be back.

I am relatively new to the area and had been on the hunt for a good place to get a pedicure. I was googling highly rated salons in my area and came upon Astante. I called one morning and they were able to take me early that afternoon which was perfect and exactly what I needed since I was heading out of town that evening. I was greeted by Samantha, my nail tech, and she was so kind! She explained all of the different polish options to me, the cost of each, and the longevity of the wear. I’ve never had a nail tech show so much product knowledge, it made me feel comfortable as a paying customer knowing that she was an expert. Despite the jets in the tub of the pedicure chair being down (they did make me aware of this advance, which I said was fine), the pedicure was super luxurious. Samantha paid super close attention to every detail along the way. My feet feel so smooth & great, and the polish looks amazing (I went with the dazzle dry polish – supposed to be super long lasting and it dried completely in 5 minutes – amazing). Samantha was super sweet and pleasant to talk to, she seems to enjoy what she does which is great. I also told Samantha where I live (10 mins. away) and she informed me that I am eligible for a 10% discount on ALL salon services at Astante due to an agreement that they have with my leasing office! Can’t beat that! I really appreciated her telling me this. I will definitely be back to see her soon!

Samantha and Kelly were both amazing! Friendly and professional. They made the experience relaxing and my nails and hair have never looked better. Love the high end products too! I’ll certainly be back very soon!

I called for a same day wash, cut and dry. I was lucky to get an appointment with Sarah. She asked about my hair habits and helped me make decisions that would best suit me. I love my hair cut and the great service I received. Parking was a breeze, the salon was clean and relaxing. Great experience.

Sammy KILLED my blow-dry and style today! She did exactly what I asked for - and I can't stress enough how picky I am with my hair. I told her in the beginning that I had to be done at a certain time so that I could make it to work and she made it happen without me feeling rushed and with my hair feeling and looking great! We had our consultation, washed, blowdried, and curled my hair all in just 45 min.
