Avanti carries a name that is synonymous with the best salons in Santa Barbara County. After being open for almost thirteen years and having an extreme amount of success, the owner, Steven, made the difficult decision to sell for personal reasons in 2004. Within a few years he knew that he needed to continue its legacy. Unfortunately, the location was not for sale. Eventually, Steven’s passion and drive paid off! The location was no longer a salon and had been ill maintained and that is when a complete remodel and facelift began. After many long months, a beautiful salon emerged in a prime location in downtown Santa Barbara. The Avanti full service salon officially re-opened in the summer of 2011 and like the salon, only the best in the business have the benefit of working in it.
