Our History

Established in 1978, Avant Garde (AG) Hairdressing has steadily grown a solid reputation for modern creative hairdressing, based on desire to offer excellence in every area of hairdressing. We are dedicated to creating the “Ultimate Salon Experience”; to look after our client’s hair 365 days a year by designing hair styles that will work in-between salon visits, with advice on how to manage your hair at home, to look and feel good every day, using a home maintenance plan.

We make use of leading academies in London, constantly learning new colouring and cutting techniques. Our talented stylists pay careful attention to lifestyle, personality, face shapes and hair types of each client, offering a full consultation long before they reach for the scissors. We strive to create “haircuts” that really work, and “hairstyles” that are different.

What Does Avant Garde Mean?

The phrase Avant Garde comes from the French vanguard, which roughly translated means “cutting edge” – no puns intended! The Oxford English Dictionary refers to Avant Garde as an adjective meaning “favouring or introducing new and experimental ideas and methods”, and this perfectly embodies our ethos here at AG.

What Do We Stock?

We stock a wide range of styling products by Loreal, Tigi, Racoon and more.
