Thomas Newhard

THOMAS NEWHARD

In the past 20 years, Thomas has become one of the most recognizable and sought after personal hair stylists in the Lehigh Valley.

“I know my clients,” he says about the hundreds of women, men, and kids who undergo what he refers to as transformations that go far beyond physical appearance.

Referred to by local media as the "Hair Doctor" and "Curly Hair Expert", Thomas creates special bonds with clients who have remained loyal since he opened the doors of Avant Garde in the historic Fogelsville Post Office Building in October 2006.

“I saw a ‘For Rent’ sign in the post office, did my homework, and realized there wasn’t any upscale salon in the area.” Thomas designed and built Avant Garde creating a warm and inviting European ambience right down to the Italian, freestanding, adjustable sinks.

 

 

 

Tabitha Salon Takeover

WOW! Factor

“I love the ‘before and after’ behind the chair” he explains. “Someone’s behind my chair…and I listen. When they’re ready to leave we’ve created that ‘wow’ factor! That’s what makes me happy.”

Thomas has been celebrated for his "WOW" work in the pages of Lehigh Valley magazine, The Morning Call, and even rubbed elbows with Tabatha, star of Bravo's TV‚ hit series "Tabatha's Salon Takeover."

A photo of Thomas and Tabatha is nestled on the mirrored and magazine-laden ledge of Thomas's styling station.

European Warmth

European warmth...
no drama!

Clients appreciate the quiet, European-inspired atmosphere of the salon decorated in Tuscan hues reminiscent of rolling countryside and vineyards. “There’s no hustle, there’s no bustle, there’s no drama,” explains Thomas. “My clients get an abundance of personal attention.”

After earning his cosmetology license in 1997, Thomas continued to take learning seriously and attends regular continuing education sessions along the Eastern seaboard to stay up to date on technique, style, and trends. “It’s important that I keep educating myself,” he says, “so each of my clients has her/his own look—everyone’s got their own special formula!”

Keritan Complex Smoothing Therapy

What is Keratin Complex?

A customized haircut that enhances facial features, compliments body type, fits your lifestyle, and gives you the look and feel you desire.

Have you ever wished that your hair was more manageable? Softer? Smoother? Had more shine? Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy is the answer. This revolutionary smoothing system infuses Keratin deep into the hair cuticle, eliminating up to ninety-five percent of frizz and curl and leaving the hair smooth, shiny and luxurious. Our client testimonials refer to Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy as life changing. It rejuvenates and revitalizes the hair, giving it a softer, silkier feel that everyone raves about.

Unlike other salon services, the more you treat your hair, the healthier it becomes. With each treatment,
the build-up of Keratin makes the hair:

  • Smoother and Silkier
  • Straighter and Shinier
  • Easier and Faster to blow-dry
  • Close to being “maintenance-free"

Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy encases
the hair follicle with a keratinous bond to:

  • Promote Healing
  • Block the effects of humidity
  • Prevent environmental toxins from entering the hair.

Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy is gentle enough to use on all hair types: color treated,
chemically processed, bleached or highlighted.
