Alexandre Crosnier a déjà coiffé sur 4 continents

Alexandre Crosnier ne passe pas inaperçu quand il se promène dans un mall  sa silhouette de mannequin en costume très mode, avec ses yeux bleus intenses et sa coiffure travaillée. Mais quand il vous accueille pour vous coiffer, depuis  la porte d`entree d`Avant-Garde Salon & Spa , son allure un brin théâtrale sied parfaitement à l’endroit et met même en confiance. On s’en remet volontiers à cet esthète pour tirer le meilleur de nos cheveux.
Voici quelques semaines qu’Alexandre, le nouveau coiffeur français dont l’adresse circule déjà , s`est installe a Avant-Garde Salon and Spa 155 Miracle Mile 33134 -Coral Gables , Miami  , precede de sa reputation  d`etre le meilleur Salon de Miami depuis 40 ans  .

Alexandre Crosnier coiffeur  , une autre compatriote. Si l’adresseest  pour l’instant quasi confidentielle, elle ne va pas le rester longtemps. Sa formule : une cliente à la fois, pas d’employés, il l’a déjà testée, à Marrakech couplée avec un Riad qu’il avait transformé en chambres d’hôtes, puis en Indonésie où, pendant 6 ans, il a partagé ses semaines entre Bali, Singapour et Hong Kong. Ce grand jeune homme ne se lasse pas, dit-il, de découvrir d’autres cultures et  des cheveux différents. Cette fois, c’est de Miami où la loi exigeait qu’il repasse ses diplômes que la Cannoise Christine Vatin ,proprietaire du Salon Avant-Garde Salon & Spa  , rencontrée  dans la ville du cinéma, lui ont vanté Miami.. lui mettait le cap sur le Canada.
Meme si la clientele de Miami est tres Avant-Garde en matière de coiffure –nul doute qu’il va se charger de les “décoiffer”, il les trouve très sympathiques, jusque dans leur manière de lui poser des questions très directes sur sa vie…Il faut dire que ce globe trotter sait mettre à l’aise. De son grand maître parisien Alexandre Zouari, coiffeurs des stars et des riches de ce monde, il a appris à établir des relations de confiance avec les clientes, en quelques secondes, sans indiscrétion ni familiarité. Résultat : sa maîtrise technique  va de pair avec un véritable intérêt pour la matière “cheveux”, “Il n’y en a pas d’impossibles, ni de trop ceci ou de pas assez cela, on s’adapte toujours”, dit celui qui sait regarder les visages et capter un mode de vie avant de proposer une coupe, comme un véritable accessoire de beauté.

Hair Trends 2012

Short, long, blonde, black, brown or red yet. This year the trend up to now has been all blond color variations. At the Avant-Garde Salon & Spa in Coral Gables, city beautiful of Miami, Florida we are seeing couple of trends. Ombré remains very big among our elite clientele and more recently we are seeing a lot lot of red tone color. Christine our salon’s owner is sporting a new sangria shade and only get compliments from everyone.

We foresee changes for coming year, because the hair is dark again. Further highlights are striking and accessories such as long hair extensions for beautiful color accents are in fashion. This is reflected in the trend in hair color.

In 2012, women are wearing red on their HEAD! Already, we see that color increases with the stars in Hollywood. Our team of AG stylists who works for Univision on shows like Sal y Pimiento and Nuestra Belleza Latina 2012 are leading the movement.

Not everyone dare to try. Anyone who is unsure should first start with a warm brown according to Avant-Garde nationally renowned colorist Elena. So you can slowly get used to the new hair color. Especially effective is the red color on blonde hair, because they shine in different shades of color so that there is an interesting play of colors and gives the hair color looks very natural.

Your new hair color should match your skin and especially your eyes. The hair color red is definitely not for everyone! So you should not insist on bending and breaking on a redhead. If red does not fit, there is no problem, with a chocolate brown in different shades of one of the most fashionable hair colors for the year 2012.  By striking highlights, you can bring pep to your hairstyle; hair color is not so boring. Uniform dark hair makes the complexion look pale, but with striking highlights, you can counteract this. Give our salon a call and ask for more information about our hair extensions or feel free to stop in for a complimentary consultation with one of our experienced stylists. We’re located at 155 Miracle Mile in Coral Gables. Our zip code is 33134 and our telephone number is (305) 442-8136. Here’s a brief video about Avant-Garde Salon and Spa if you’ve never been here before.

Laser Hair Removal in Coral Gables

We offer laser hair removal services in our Coral Gables hair salon where we feature the Gentle YAG Candela Laser. This is one of the fastest most powerful lasers on the market today.

GentleYAG laser hair removal can be used for any area of the skin which has unwanted hair, including the face, neck, chest, back, bikini area, underarms, arms and legs.

This laser procedure may be used on women and men, and from teenagers to seniors. Any skin type may be treated including Asian and African American skin types. The hair must be pigmented, either brown or black. Because the laser targets pigment, blonde and gray hairs cannot be removed with the GentleYAG.

Below is one of our luxurious and clean spa rooms where we perform laser hair removal procedures.

The GentleYAG Laser is a powerful and versatile machine to use for unwanted hair and works on several different skin types.

Why did we choose GentleYAG for our Coral Gables Hair Salon?

·         Because it’s powerful

26,333 watts of peak power and capable of delivering fluences up to 600 J/cm2 for vascular applications, and hair removal energies in pulse durations as short as 3ms for unparalleled treatment efficacies, especially finer hairs.

·         Because it’s versatile

Non-ablative treatment, including fine lines and wrinkles, and for pseudofolliculitis barbae (PFB), or beard bumps, leg and facial spider veins.

·         Because it treats all skin types

Deep penetration with minimal scattering of laser energy makes the GentleYAG ideal for all skin types, especially dark and tanned skin.

Does laser hair removal hurt? When the laser is applied to the skin, customers feel some stinging, similar in sensation to a little pinch on your skin. We apply an anesthetic cream to the area being treated for 30 minutes prior to the procedure. This ensures your comfort during the treatment.

After the customer has had the topical anesthetic cream on for 30 minutes, a cool gel is applied to the area being treated. Dark glasses are worn to protect the customer’s eyes from the light. With the customer in a comfortable, relaxed position, the GentleYAG hand piece is applied to the skin.

How long does it take? The length of the treatment varies, from fifteen minutes to an hour or more, depending on which area is being treated.

In general, customers have two to six treatments, approximately every four to six weeks. Customers with darker skin types may require more treatments.

What will my skin look like afterwards? The appearance of the skin after using the GentleYAG Laser varies from customer to customer, depending on their skin type and area treated. Most customers report experiencing redness and some swelling of the treated area with mild discomfort similar to the sensation of a light sunburn. This may last from an hour to a day. Hair from the treated area may shed. You should be able to return to your usual activities right away.

Cold compresses applied to the treated area help to reduce redness, swelling and discomfort. Customers may shave carefully as soon as the day after their treatment. Customers notice that treated hairs will shed during the week or two following treatment. Gradually, it becomes apparent that some hairs are not re-growing while others are finer.

It is important to protect all your skin from the sun using a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day as well as sun protective clothing.

The GentleYAG Laser causes significant hair reduction in the areas treated. After two to six treatments, most customers are satisfied with the results. These effects are permanent, although a touch up may be required from time to time. In some people, complete hair removal may not be attained.

If you’d like to schedule a laser hair removal appointment, please call our salon at (305) 442-8136 and we’d be happy to give you any additional information you might need. We are located at 155 Miracle Mile in the heart of Coral Gables.

Right now, laser hair removal is one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures. It’s considered a safe and effective way to permanently remove unwanted hair from:

  • the bikini area,
  • under arms,
  • legs, chest,
  • back (for gents),
  • and even your face.

Cuts, nicks, razors and bumps will all be things of the past if you decide to become one of the millions of people who choose laser hair removal instead of shaving or waxing. This is procedure is effective for both women and men.

The length of a laser hair removal session can range from a few minutes to no longer than 45 minutes – obviously depending on the size of the area being treated. After several sessions, you’ll experience a long-term reduction of hair in the treated area.

We use a Candela® and GentleYAG® because these brands offer fast treatments with fewer laser pulses.

When you contact us for a consultation, we’re happy to tell you more about our laser hair removal process and the necessary preparations you should make before your appointment.
