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

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!!

My first time at Evolve and I’m really happy with the result. I had the lovely Jane, who was the perfect blend of lending her professional opinion whilst considering what I wanted. I would definitely recommend giving Jane a visit.

So after 16-17 years of going to the same salon, my hairdresser (and friend) took a new job at Evolve. What can I say, certainly nothing negative. My hair looks and feels fantastic, everyone was lovely, they have amazing massage seats for when you get your hair washed. Great drinks list and well looked after. It made a very pleasant change and my girl is very happy working there.

Sheila Gair - 24th Nov 2018

Holly is a brilliant colourist and subtly blended shades to fade out the grey! She also did a fantastic job cutting my thick, curly hair into a style that suits me, and I've been complimented on. She really listened to what I asked for. Thank you so much!

First time, lovely team of ladies and extra thanks to the lady who lent me money for the car park and popped out to put a new ticket in the machine. I’m afraid I can’t remember my hairdressers name but she was excellent and dealt with my restyle really well! My only negative was that it was a little cold but everyone else seemed fine so that was probably just me!

Pleased with the cut unfortunately after 1 hour the blow dry had totally lost its bounce and in actual fact non of my family were even aware I had been to the hairdresser's. Was charged for re-style when in actual fact it was only a trim and thinning out but overall happy with the cut.
