"Best Hair Salon" - Austin Chronicle 2011
Y'all love Avant. You just can't help yourselves. Owner Roy Fredericks is a true pioneer in Austin's beauty scene with decades of successful salons under his belt. Extraordinarily talented stylists go through Avant's meticulous training process, ensuring that when you see an Avant haircut, you know it's an Avant haircut. With his ever-growing empire in Central Texas, Fredericks and Avant will be remembered as the foundation upon which our current fashion scene was built."

"Best Salon" - InStyle
"The ultimate AVEDA salon and spa experience in Austin since 1983. With multiple locations throughout the city, Avant has been voted "Best Salon" by the Austin Chronicle and CitySearch 2006, "Best Color" by CitySearch and AVEDA 2006 and "Best Spa" by the Austin Chronicle. Avant's talented beauty professionals are all graduates of its nationally-recognized educational program. Artistic design plus Daymakers results in a truly nurturing and energizing experience"

"Best Hair Salon" - Austin Chronicle
“Avant – it's not just a salon and spa ... it's an institution and probably one of the top businesses that have won more "Best of Austin" awards than any others. Do we need to go on about their excellent service, products, and multiple locations? Nah, we'll just let their fabulous reputation and a mention in the September 2006 issue of InStyle speak for themselves.”
