It was great to be back at Evolve after a long time away. Fran was as brilliant as ever, and gave me a fabulous cut.
Obviously it's all a bit different with the Covid measures in place, but they dealt with it all in a very professional manner.

This was my first haircut in a while (due to lockdown) and I cherished every minute of it. I felt safe; as always the salon staff were friendly and the place looks spic and span. The safety precautions showed care and attention (sectioned off areas / staff wearing masks/visors) and the social interaction didn’t suffer even though we were all wearing masks.
It was great to get pampered, have my hair cut back to a manageable condition and leave feeling too if the world.
My haircut and colour were of their usual high standard and dare I say it, my experience felt normal (well typical of a normal experience at Evolve). Thanks everyone

Firstly I would like to say how amazing Holly is as a hairdresser! I have followed her to this salon and absolutely love coming here, everyone is so welcoming and friendly.
I had a full head of highlights and although it hasn’t quite lifted As light as I wanted (and I left with damp hair so couldn’t fully tell in the salon), I messaged Holly and it is being sorted out this week. I am blown away by the efficiency and professionalism of holly and Lindsay and would recommend evolve and Holly to everyone. Thank you so much for looking after me team evolve! Definitely the best salon I’ve ever used xx

Had my regular root touch up with Holly, and am very happy. Holly’s advice on my colour has proved to be perfect - my hair shines and feels glossy. Love it! The salon feels very safe, full precautions being taken during COVID-19, which are not too intrusive on the experience. Brilliant job all round.

This was my first visit to Evolve since before lockdown so I was desperate for a haircut!! Poor Ebony was faced with 5 months of growth but she listened to what I wanted and cut and coloured it exactly as I had hoped. The salon felt so clean and safe and everyone, although busy and hot still had smiles on their faces! Thank you Ebony and all at Evolve for working your magic again

Good safety precautions, inobtrusive and very elegant screening. The whole experience was comfortable, pleasurable and transforming.
Came in to have transition from sun bleached hair and sneaky grey growth to something flattering and easy to style.
I got all of these aspects and I am very pleased indeed. Holly’s work has been much admired and I am very appreciative. Happy Hairdressing!!! Long may you continue.

It was the first time Ebony had done my hair and she was very lovely. She listened to me and to what I wanted to do with my awful ‘lockdown’ mess of hair. She gave me excellent advice and I was confident from the start that she knew exactly what she was doing and trusted her opinions. My wash was great too and the lady that did it was very chatty and friendly. I had a treatment which was relaxing and I felt like I’d been pampered when I left. My final look was amazing !! I love it. Thankyou Ebony x

My last appointment at Evolve was 2 weeks before lockdown so I was desperate to visit again!! I was not disappointed. It felt so safe, clean but as always professional. Ebony was fantastic as always and although faced with my “lockdown’ hair was as ever professional in her opinion on where I should go with it. She coloured and cut my hair exactly as requested and I can’t express how different I feel as a result. Thank you Ebony and Evolve, as always for making me feel normal again!! You are all special angels 😘
