"I found Avanti hair salon about a year and a half ago after moving from Bergen county and wanting a closer salon. I was very very nervous to try a new salon, but Maribel was super amazing and always does what I ask. I regularly come here for partial highlights and have had a haircut (layers, face frame, and a trim) twice. If you're a blonde and love gorgeous light blonde highlights, make an appointment with Maribel ASAP!
Side note- I style my hair myself so I can't review that, but Maribel's hair always looks great, so I'm sure she does an amazing job with that as well ;)"

"I moved to Jersey City back in June from the Upper West Side and was worried I wouldn't find a salon by my house that I absolutely loved. After a couple failed attempts at different salons, I stumbled across Avanti Beauty Salon in Hoboken. Jenny does my hair every time! She is an an incredible artist with the hair. From cut to color to blow, I am always so happy with the outcome and she knows what works best with my hair. Thank you Jenny and the incredibly friendly staff!"
-Iriet S. (Jersey City, NJ) on 12/23/2016 on Yelp
"All these reviews are spot on! I absolutely recommend Bilian, I've known her for 10 years+ and her hands are like magic to my hair. She always asks if you are satisfied and doesn't try to push something you won't like. I bring her pics of haircuts and styles I want and she knows exactly how to modify them so it looks great on me...You'll never be disappointed!"
-Mina H. (North Haledon, NJ) on 1/20/2017 on Yelp
"First time at this salon and was so pleasantly surprised. Bilian is truly amazing. I have long, curly hair and it's really difficult to find someone who can handle it. I went to have my highlights done and Bilian did a great job. Will definitely be back!"

"I wanted bangs, but I just moved to Hoboken so I was very nervous about picking a new salon for such a drastic change. I chose Avanti based on the reviews here, and I'm glad I did! Jenny really knew what she was doing, and she listened to exactly what I wanted and what I didn't want, and helped me figure out what would look best on me. She also was able to answer every question I had about styling and products.
The atmosphere is super average, but I don't go to salons for the atmosphere, I go for a good haircut, and that's what I got."
-Lane B. (Staten Island, NY) on 9/28/2015 on Yelp
"This is by far the best salon in Hoboken or any other area nearby. The prices are beyond reasonable and the quality of work is incredible.
Kyle is a true gem- he does very meticulous work and doesn't make you feel rushed or unattended. My boyfriend and i have both been coming to him for a few years now and we've never been disappointed by his work. Today was my most recent appointment, in which he did beach blonde balayage and i love it! He was so extensive and even took me outside to check the color in the sun to ensure it was perfect. He's also very outgoing and fun to talk to; I would recommend him to anyone for any service."
-Maria E. (Hoboken, NJ) on 3/26/2016 on Yelp
"Jenny was great! She actually Listens to the customer. I have very long hair and just wanted a couple inches off. She also blew my hair out and it looks great! Very affordable cut as well compared to other salons in the area. Will come again!!"
-Jackie B. (Secaucus, NJ) on 9/26/2015 on Yelp
"I consider this place to be a hidden Hoboken gem. I have been to numerous (expensive) salons throughout Hoboken since moving here, and after coming to Avanti, I haven't gone to any others since! Prices are extremely reasonable for the area, and my hair cut always comes out exactly as I asked. My stylist (Maribel) and I always have a nice consultation prior to my cut and I feel like she truly listens and works to create the style I am looking for. She never cuts off too much length and it always comes out exactly as we discussed. I go here for my color too, which always turns out very natural, just the way I like it. This place may not look like your typical upscale "city salon" when you walk in, but you can trust the stylists here and will not walk out disappointed! They are also flexible and are great about fitting you in for an appointment at the last minute if you need one. I would recommend coming here if you're looking for a no-thrills Hoboken salon that gives affordable, reliable cuts time after time. I will not be going anywhere other than Avanti for my hair cut and color - they do not disappoint."
-Dana P. (Hoboken, NJ) on 9/6/2015 on Yelp
"Such a nice place! I needed a new salon because my sister, a stylist, lives too far away. I am so glad I chose Avanti, and I loved Maribel's kind personality and amazing skills, especially with my hard-to-handle curly hair. I can't wait to go back - next time, I may even try highlights! 🙂
Maria, the receptionist, is Maribel'ssister and was also very sweet. Reasonably priced ($40 for a wash and cut) so that I can afford to get my haircut every two months as necessary.
-Danielle T. (Weehawken, NJ) on 5/10/2014 on Yelp
"Amazing!! I got a TERRIBLE Super Cuts job and came to Avanti and they fixed it right up and so quickly. Great price, only $40 for a cut and light blow out. I'm absolutely going back."
-Meg M. (Jersey City, NJ) on 12/1/2015 on Yelp
"I just moved to Hoboken and didn't know where to go. I was recommended to go to someone who would come to your apt to do your hair. I wanted blonde highlights and it came out brown, red, blonde, and orange. It was horrible. I went to Avanti after reading reviews about Maribel. She is AMAZING. She turned my orange hair into beautiful blonde highlights and didn't overdue my hair bc she didn't want to cause any permanent damage (since I just had gotten it colored the day before). Highly recommend."
-Taylor C. (Hoboken, NJ) on 12/8/2015 on Yelp
"I came here to have highlights done by Maribel. I've been getting my hair highlighted for 10 years. These were some of the best highlights I ever had!
The color was VERY natural and the tiny pieces made it grow in beautifully. I will definitely be back."
-Rachel L. (Hoboken, NJ) on 8/11/2014 on Yelp
"Came here after reading so many great things about Maribel. I was lucky enough to catch her on a slow Tuesday evening. So without any reservations, I was able to get my cut by her. I told her the length I wanted and she didn't cut any more than that. YES. Finally a hairdresser who didn't go scissor happy on my hair! She was great, my hair definitely feels healthier and more voluminous."
-Shaili K. (New York, NY) on 4/12/2015 on Yelp
"Jennie, is an excellent colorist & stylist. She is very customer-oriented and puts new clients instantly at ease."
-Janice G. (Matawn, NJ) on 11/2/2014 on Yelp
"I moved to Jersey a not a long time ago and I've been looking for a salon but I couldn't find one that I really liked until a friend told me about Avanti, let me just tell you it was amazing. The place was clean, nice, and the service was amazing. I wanted to cut my hair and get highlights, I asked for that and I got exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much!!!"
-Jessica G. (Jersey City, NJ) on 4/22/2015 on Yelp
"I've been here 3 times and always been happy. It's quiet, small, clean, and totally affordable ($35 for a basic women's cut). This is going to be my regular place."
-Elizabeth M. (Jersey City, NJ) on 7/5/2013 on Yelp
"One of the best salon experiences I've had in awhile. Was looking for a new stylist and after reading the reviews on Maribel on Yelp, I decided to check Avanti out. All the positive reviews are accurate. She's meticulous, experienced, thorough and extremely helpful if you ask for her opinion in regards to color and style. My hair has gotten dramatically healthier since my first visit with her. My appointments are spaced out longer then I used to need to touch up my roots because she does such an intricate job with highlights getting the color so close to the roots. She always tells me when I don't need something (thought I needed toner and she said it was unnecessary with the color - so apparently I was getting ripped off by another salon). Not to mention, the salon itself has friendly, amazing customer service and always goes above and beyond to accommodate last minute appointments. Glad the salon has so many supportive reviews on Yelp that I was able to find them and will definitely recommend the salon and Maribel to anyone else looking for a new stylist!"
