Five Star Customer Service

We understand nobody wants any nasty surprises at the end of their visit, so all our stylists will always take you through, step by step, what they plan to do with your hair to get the best possible result! This may sometimes mean an added toner or treatment, but listening to the advice of our talented team is always worth it to ensure you get the best possible results!

It’s time to talk about our massage chairs - here’s what one of our lovely clients had to say:

“Firstly I like how the backwash section is away from the rest of the salon, as it really gives you some privacy when it comes to having your hair washed. It also breaks up the visit each time and genuinely is really relaxing as you get to lie back in and receive a massage from the already comfy chairs! It is an added bonus and really does make a difference to the overall experience of going to the salon.” - Poppy, 24 Worcester.

AG keep all your visits documented, so on your next visit whoever your stylists or beauty therapist may be, we can pick up right where we left off! We have a genuine interest in our clients who leave the salon feeling happy and satisfied with the service and level of professionalism provided by AG.

The Avant Garde Journey - Where It All Began

Husband and wife team Ian & Naomi Beswick started the amazing Avant Garde journey at ages 19 & 20 back in 2002, when their first salon opened in a health club (Cannons now called Nuffield) with a small three-station, two backwash set up. Naomi had been hairdressing for four years at this point, so the ‘salon’ was a base for Naomi to work from. The second health club salon opened just three years later, as the first salon was a massive success.

A change of direction and a desire to be independent led the couple to take the biggest leap of faith in 2008 they opened the Warndon Villages salon. This was, and still is, a convenient salon offering city centre luxury just outside the centre.

Ian and Naomi established the business over the next 5 years, fighting through the recession and emerging stronger than ever before. The next big plunge in 2014 was a superb city centre flagship salon based at Saint Martins Quarter. This was a 16 station super salon, offering the same conveniences as the Warndon salon such as being open 7 days a week with late nights until 9pm. There was also the introduction of what is known as the ‘Avant Garde Experience’, a state of the art backwash section, including massage chair.

This forward-thinking couple has really embodied the true meaning of being an entrepreneur. They are always looking to improve and grow the business. Change, evolvement and always staying ahead of their competitors is key.

In 2017 they acquired Peter Prosser hairdressing in Hereford, taking on most of the staff members and branching out with a new Training Academy and Artistic Team.  Now with a combined team of around 70 staff and the ability to train the next generation of hairdressers in-house, Ian and Naomi and the AG team cannot wait to introduce more and more people in Worcester and Hereford to the unique Avant Garde Experience.

Excellent service as always. I had been transferred over to Luke as my usual hairdresser is on maternity and he had read over my notes, made me feel welcome, asked me what I wanted and was friendly and the result was fantastic! Excellent service - would highly recommend Avant Garde - I have been with them for 10 years.
