I had my first hair appointment with Vicki today and was thoroughly pleased with my hair style. It was exactly what I wanted and Vicki gave the time to ensure it was right. All the staff were friendly and professional and I had a delightful few hours ‘on me’. Thank you all for a very pleasant introduction to Evolve.

As you walk in you get greeted by friendly faces, they take your jacket and hang it up for you, offering you a beverage as you wait. Ebony who was my stylist sat down with me and we go through exactly what I’m wanting and how we are going to get there, giving me information and advice. We then started the long process with bleaching my hair, which goes quickly with great conversation. I then had to wait 40mins, but with a lovely cappuccino made there for you and my book it was really relaxing. I then moved on to having my hair rinsed, and oh how wonderful the chair was, massaging your body as you have your hair washed. Ebony was a fantastic stylist, giving me great advice on what products to use and making me feel so calm and relaxed throughout the whole process. I will definitely be back, thank you again.

Had my hair cut here for the first time today. Everyone very friendly.
Fran cut my hair and I thought she was fantastic. She asked lots of questions about my hair, and what I did or didn't want. I've never had such a thoughtful, considerate, thorough hair consultation. She explained what she was going to do really well, and gave me a fab haircut.

The hair appointment it’s self was great, amazing service and couldn’t fault my hairdresser. She did everything as I wanted it. However the manager made me feel quite uncomfortable standing at the till and making sure I was paying the correct amount and making a point of waiting at the till till I had done so. Made me feel quite small and intimidated and as though my custom wasn’t enough.

I had the underside of my hair coloured and I have super thick hair that is very tricky to work with but the stylists did a great job over 5.5 hours of making me feel comfortable with drinks, chat and even a massage chair!

I have been coming to this salon for the last 5 years and the staff at the salon I have always found to be professional and helpful and make you feel like part of the Evolve "family" . Creative Director Claire is my go to hair guru.

Today I decided to revamp my colour and was totally impressed with the consultation regarding my colour.I was consulted about my needs and wants and desired end result - there was great input and explanations from Claire - determined to get the right colour(s) and result for me.

The end result was absolutely amazing - I have had the same colour on my hair for the last 5 years and took the plunge today to do something different and was so glad that I made that decision and delighted that I had the support and expertise of Claire ( who I totally trust with my hair!)

I left the salon and went home with a very sleek and bouncy style with a grown up colour - slightly darker than before but with subtle copper and golden highlights. Well suited to me and my skintone.

I am so delighted and feel 5 years younger as a result. If you want a feel good experience and want to come out of a salon feeling a million dollars then visit Evolve.

Thank You to Claire especially - you are the best ever at looking after me and my hair ! My gratitude today also goes to Ebony, Sydney, Katie and Diane for their help ,input and care today .

You are all superstars at Team Evolve !!!

It was my first visit to Evolve and I must say I was impressed. The atmosphere was professional yet relaxed, I was greeted with a pot of tea and my stylist really listed to what I wanted and kept me informed of what she was doing. I felt at ease and i didn’t feel rushed at all.

Plus my hair looked and felt amazing!!!!

First visit to an old friend

Marian Carey - 19th Dec 2018

Verified Appointment Verified by SALONGENIUS Software

My stylist of 15 years has recently moved to Evolve, so although i’m supremely confident and secure in her abilities (you are great, Holly!) I was curious how I would find the salon. Well, it was amazing. All the staff friendly, very professional, and with great attention to detail. As the products were new to my hair, I Was given a detailed consultation that made me confident in my choice of colour- and it looked amazing! There’s a real buzz in the salon, beautifully presented refreshments, everything is unhurried, and I simply have to namecheck Meghan’s head massage. Absolute bliss!!
