It’s not too often you walk into a business that has been faithfully servicing its community for more than 30 years, especially one that was completely devastated from Hurricane Sandy. And through nothing short of hard work from family and friends, many tears and a faithful staff who is lovingly referred to as “family,” Avanti Salon reopened a mere three weeks after the storm. The BELLA team felt as fortunate as makeover recipient Heather Krenstel to be a part of an amazing day at such a warm and busy salon and spa.
Heather, a mom to three beautiful children, ages 13, 10 and 7, lives on the South Shore of Staten Island and has been a client of Avanti for almost 15 years. “Heather has always been a wonderful client of ours,” explained Jamile Mila, Avanti’s salon and spa manager. “We felt we should offer a day of beauty and pampering to someone who not only deserves it, but who has become like family to us, like so many of our clients.”
