Best hairdresser I have ever been to in my lifetime! I have very curly hair and hilly knows exactly how to cut it. Today as always my cut was perfect. Holly is not only a wonderful hairdresser but just a wonderful human as well. Thank you Holly ❤️

I have only recently moved to York and it took me awhile to find the perfect hairdresser and I have found that in Ebony. She is friendly and very professional. Ebony makes you feel at ease and talks me through my colour and what would look best ( as I get nervous making that change). I enjoy having a good chat while having my hair done and the time goes by really quickly. The salon is Superb and extremely clean. The measures that have been put in place due to Covid are exceptional and I do not feel worried about attending for my hair experience.
All the staff at Evolve are warm and welcoming every time I go and I am looking forward to my next visit.

Just wanted to say thankyou to Holly for a gorgeous Davines colour treatment, cut, and style. My hair feels smooth now, looks healthy and feels so great. Holly offered great advice on managing my hair style, and as always gave 100% focus and care to both my hair and to me too. She is a consummate professional. Thanks Holly.

Post lockdown transformation

Jane - 29th Aug 2020

Verified Appointment Verified by SALONGENIUS Software

Ebony did a fantastic job. It was a challenging transformation to overall grey from ‘growing out’ highlights. She discussed it all and made sure I was happy with what was planned. The result is amazing. It was relaxed and I’m delighted with the result. Thank you to Ebony and all in the salon for making it an enjoyable experience. It’s great to be back and very much appreciated.

I can't deny that I was slightly nervous about having my first haircut since lockdown but Ebony was so reassuring and followed procedures but still made it relaxed and friendly. I am very pleased with my haircut as always, Ebony listens to what I want and advises appropriately. She always thinks about how I will manage the style myself and constantly checks how it feels and if I am happy. Thank you Ebony.
