Minnie (Melinda) is the most wonderful stylist with the sweetest personality--and the only person I truly TRUST for a consistently fabulous cut and color. I've been going to Minnie for 14 years and have gone to great lengths to see her at least twice a year (Northern California to So-Cal, NYC to Rochester)! Minnie knows exactly what your hair needs to bring its natural beauty out or add a fun, modern spin to your look. She's a master colorist, excellent cutter, and incredible updo-er. Definitely ask for Minnie if you're going to Michael Avery for the first time.
Great Experience – I am 56 years old and I am a licensed Cosmetologist. I never really used the degree but to do my own hair and some family members. Three years ago I met Michael when he purchased a motorcycle from my daughter. I decided to give him a try, I was tired of coloring my hair every 3 weeks. I am hooked and look forward to seeing him every visit. He is a gifted man as a hair dresser, he listens to what you ask and puts all his efforts into making you happy. Most of all thou, I love Michael, he always makes me feel special.
Michael is the best! – I have had the pleasure of receiving the best service from Michael Avery for over 10 years now. I currently live in North Carolina but my first email when I know I am coming to Rochester is always to Michael to make sure he can get me in for a haircut! I really wish he would move closer to me but I will have to settle for seeing him at least once a year when I am in town!
Fantastic, talented and personable stylists. – I actually met Michael Avery before I ever set foot in his salon when he was enjoying dinner at the restaurant I work at. He was very kind, and I told him my personal stylist was moving to Florida and I would definitely look into coming there for my future styling needs.
Fast forward to several months later, I finally was able to come in and check out the salon. Michael set me up an appointment with Minnie who is simply amazing! I feel like being Asian, my hair can be difficult to style let alone cut and color, and I walked out feeling like a million bucks and looking like a supermodel (or at least in my mind).
I HIGHLY recommend the salon to anyone looking for a wonderful place to get an amazing hair cut or style.
Also, kudos to the salon for their commitment to animal rights, they have a whole section on their website with resources as well as a commitment to using cruelty free products. This is something close to my heart being a lifelong animal lover and a new (ish) vegan.
MINNIE is a miracle worker!!! – I discovered this amazing salon after another upscale Rochester salon butchered my hair. I spoke directly with Michael on the phone - he was compassionate and eager to help. They got me in the SAME DAY with Minnie.
The ambiance at Michael Avery & Co. is divine and all of the stylists were warm and welcoming. I love that everyone interacts with one another - it's a very harmonious vibe. Minnie took the time to listen to what I wanted/needed from a hairstyle and was able to transform my uneven, butchered mess into the exact style I had envisioned!!! She is hands-down the most talented hairstylist I've ever met. She is definitely not afraid of a challenge! I cannot wait to go back for color! - Minnie is truly and artist, her passion for hair is so evident...when someone loves what they do, it shows!
Wonderful salon!!! Kera is Awesome!! – I have only been to Michael Avery & Co. a few times but I loved it from the moment I walked in. Everyone is so nice & welcoming!!
My stylist Kera is the best!! She has been doing my hair for a few years & I love her! Thank you Kera for helping my hair look amazing each & every time!!
Amazing hair salon! – Michael Avery & Co. hair salon is fabulous! The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, there are always smiling faces and delicious coffee! Michelle is amazing. She listens to what I want each time and if I don't know and leave it up to her expertise she does a phenomenal job and making my hair look amazing. The color and cut I get each time is remarkable, I have never received so many complements on my hair! Good job Michelle and the rest of the team for the fantastic job you are all doing.
Fantastic!!! – I hadn't had a real haircut in about five years. I had been buzzing my head every year or so. I wanted to donate my hair to Locks of Love, so Michelle was careful to ponytail everything, and still make me look great! I was surprised by the price too; it was very cheap! I needed so much untangling and conditioning done, and she never complained.
Michelle is AWESOME!!!!!! – I LOVE this salon!!! I went from platinum blonde 2 dark brown today!! Michelle did a awesome job!! I LOVE how it came out!! She is great at color!! She was so gentle & kind...listened 2 what I wanted and gave me great pointers & advice!! This is a cozy quiet place and smells great!! Friendly atmosphere and they serve u coffee, tea, or water while u wait...I totally recommend Michelle and cant wait 2 go back!!! Reasonably priced 2!!
A great experience and a great cut! – I heart Michael. He makes my hair look awesome and he listens to what I have to say. For instance, I'm a busy mom who doesn't have a lot of time in the morning to make my naturally thin hair look great. Michael gave me a cut that is basically wash and go and it looks fantasitc.
The time I spend there is the highlight of my month. The coffee is hot, the music is great, the magazines are interesting and the conversation could be anything from politics to world travel to fine food.
I'm young, and I want attention and a great pair of hands- and I've found it all at Michael Avery & Co.
Hipster to 'burb dweller- you'll fit in and get a great 'do here.
