Avant- Garde Salon & Spa is located in the heart of Coral Gables, Miami, on Miracle Mile, close to Coconut Grove . The salon was established by Renan Garcia and Jorge Alfonso in 1976. In a very short time, this incredibly talented duo became very successful and well known in Miami. Arturo De Vera, a loyal stylist to this day, became a third partner along the way.
Renan introduced his talent to the Univision network and soon became the beauty expert for Sabado Gigante, Univision's longest running television show. To this day, Avant-Garde Salon & Spa, remains Univision's main team of beauty experts, responsible for hair and make up for shows like "Nuestra Belleza", "Mira Quien Baila" and "Premio Lo Nuestro" to name a few. Renan eventually established his own beauty segment that airs weekly in the Univision network for the past ten years. News anchors and reporters such as Laurie Jennings, Shannon Hori, Alina Mayo, Natalia Zea, Belkys Nerey, Lynn Martinez, and many others depend on Avant-Garde Salon & Spa Miami, for their beauty needs.
In 2010, the trio transferred Avant-Garde Salon & Spa ownership to Christine & Thierry Painparay, a French couple who previously owned and managed a high end spa in Cannes on the French Riviera. Renan remains the backstage director for the Avant-Garde team at Univision and Arturo remains a significant contributor at the salon, collaborating with the new owners in the beginning of a new era in the salon's successful history
