Avant Garde Salons
Created by husband & Wife Team Ian & Naomi Beswick, Avant Garde Worcester has grown from a simple mobile service to one of the most recommended hair salons in the midlands. They say from little acorns do mighty oaks grows and that’s becoming the reality for Ian& Naomi. Not happy with following the usual salon way, Ian & Naomi have set out from the start to make Avant Garde different. We work hard to set our self apart from other salons, working until 9pm and opening Sundays was totally unheard of when we started doing it 6 years ago. We have a great team and our dream is to see them grow with the company too, from trainees RIGHT UP TO salon managers. We have from day 1 worked to fit in with our clients convenience not ours. We guarantee to provide you with a hairstyle that personally suits you, with a care routine that fits your lifestyle. But most of all we guarantee to listen. Our artistic & creative stylists share their expert hair knowledge with you so that your hair doesn't just look great when you leave the salon but every single day.
