Extreme Makeover: Avanti Edition

June 11, 2012

With all the beautiful hair we see walking out of the salon every day, it is perhaps somewhat easy for us at Avanti to take for granted the skill required to maintain such consistent quality. However, sometimes a client approaches the desk transformed to such a degree that we can only stare in amazement at the magic a great stylist can perform. A true makeover is a special circumstance, one we wish we could photograph on every single occasion. In celebration of our own evolution as we prepare for our move to 20 Newbury, we are thrilled to invite you to experience an Extreme Makeover, Avanti style. We are teaming up with Shannon Michelle Photography for this exciting offering, and we can’t wait to begin the process of selecting the lucky ladies for these transformations!


Not sure you’re the right candidate for an Avanti Makeover? Cast your doubts aside, because we want to hear YOUR story! Perhaps you are a mom who simply hasn’t had the time to worry about her hair while chasing after the kids. Perhaps you’re a student, heavily reliant upon time-saving ponytails while buried under piles of books all day long. Perhaps you have a friend who hasn’t bothered to do much of anything with her hair since time immemorial. Whatever the case may be, our team of stylists is gearing up to unlock your inner supermodel and leave your friends and loved ones stunned.


If you would like to be considered for an Avanti Makeover, here is a list of important dates and details.


  1. We ask that you submit a photograph of yourself and an essay detailing why you feel you could benefit from an Avanti makeover. All submissions must be sent to by June 30th, at which time 3 semi-finalists will be chosen.
  2.  These three finalists will be invited to our current location at 11 Newbury for a complimentary Avanti Makeover. There, they will receive color, cut, and makeup services, completely revolutionizing their look. Before and after photos will be taken.
  3. These before and after photographs will be posted online where they will be voted upon to select the winner for our Grand Prize, a true Runway Makeover! The name of this lucky lady will be announced at one of the first gala events to be held at our new location, currently scheduled for August 15th.
  4. As a recipient of our Runway Makeover, the winner will receive further hair and makeup services in preparation for a professional photo shoot with one of Boston’s premiere photographers. We are excited to be partnering with Shannon Michelle Photography to produce gorgeous, magazine quality documentation of this special event. A nominee for Best Commercial Photographer during this year’s Boston Fashion Awards, a photo shoot with Shannon will guarantee you the ultimate glamorous experience!


From My Fair Lady to Pretty Woman, Cinderella to The Princess Diaries, who doesn’t love a great makeover story? And while we may not be able to guarantee an exact reproduction of Audrey Hepburn’s immortal elegance, we hope to provide the fairy tale transformation of your dreams!
