In response to the bashing below... I'm the hairstylist who had to take over this client's service from a co-worker because this woman had her so confused and conflicted as to what she really wanted that she asked for my help... And I never told this lady that her hair was cut all to hell, only that adjustments needed to be made in order to give her what she wanted. I can also assure you that Evolve Salon did everything possible to make this client happy... In the end, she indeed assured me that she liked her hair before paying and tipping after her visit. One hour later her aunt called the salon from CA., ranting very belligerently that she was going to sue the sh** out of us and was rude beyond belief to the owner who was trying to help resolve the issue. This all boils down to MONEY MONEY MONEY, as this woman obviously feels that we should have given her FREE services not once but twice! Ask yourself this; If she were so unhappy with our salon and the professionals who work there why would she have returned? Trust me, this lady is a complete nut-case who quite obviously feels that it's now her mission to bash and trash our fine salon and the reputations of our highly trained stylists all over the web. I would have told her aunt to screw off too, if in fact that was ever said, which I highly doubt! Her entire review of Evolve Salon is completely without merit and I wanted the public to know, as I can again assure you that we here at Evolve Salon are highly trained salon professionals committed to excellence and client satisfaction. We are not however mental health professionals or a psychiatric office! I can only hope that this woman keeps her word and that we NEVER see her in our salon again! And if you are a salon owner or stylist, all I can say is that I hope you're not this woman's next stop! And to top it all off, this lady is a second grade teacher? Thank God I don't have a kid in her class! Sincerely Yours, Edward Aalam Master Colorist and Stylist
To make a long story short I thought I would look much better as a brunette instead of my existing blonde color so I went to a hair stylist whom I will not mention here and made the change to a mid level brunette color. Well I did look different and I thought the new color would grow on me. I got home and my husband Tom was very upset and said he loved my hair all these years. He had never commented on my hair ever. Go fiqure Men! I looked in the mirror and looked at a recent photo and he was right my old color looked much better on me. I don't know much but my friends sister went through this process and it was difficult to return to her original color. My sister told me I should find someone that does these color corrections all the time. I agreed and starting hunting on the net for a stylist and customers that had gone through this process. I finally found Jade. I brought a recent photo of me and had a consultation with her and was impressed by her honesty and knowledge about color. She said it usually takes two apointments about a month apart form each other to get it right. She even said to me that some people's hair can never get back to the same original color. I felt comfortable with Jade and made the appointment. It took three and a half hours and about 80% the way through the process Jade smiled at me and she said that the color would be spot on. I don't know how she knew because my hair was still wet and full of color. Well she was exactingly right. After washing my hair and blowing it out I was in tears with happiness with the results. I looked in the mirror and at my photo and was amazed. I was so happy and Tom was thrilled and said please do't do that again. Jade I don't know how to say thank you enough but I thought by writing this review would be a start. Regards Blair
I took my daughter to Ancient Spa and Boutique because we saw the add on groupon and decided to purchase two rock star manicures. Carla did mine and I just absolutely loved it. she took her time on me and it just looked and felt wonderful. She was a very pleasant and sweet person My daughter had I believe her name was Shawn or Shawny and she did such a horrible job on them. It looked as if everything was just slapped on, like no time was even put into it. My daughter was done about 20 minutes before I even was and it sure showed by the horrible job that was done on her. my daughter was so upset that she was in tears.I had told Shawny that she needed to fix my daughters nails and supposedly she had asked the owner who said she could file the nails down, but would charge me for the work to be done again. Excuse me, but if you screw up, why should I have to repay to get it done? to sum it all up, I work all the time and this was one of the very few days my daughter and I get some alone time together and Shawny ruined it for my daughter. The only reason I am giving this place 3 stars instead of two or one is because Carla did such a fantastic job on me and she tried her hardest to to apologize and make it up to me. If I do come back to this place, I will not be bringing my daughter and it will only be to see Carla again and have my work done by just her. A little advice to the owner: If you screw up, then you are suppose to fix it without trying to make me pay more for fixing it and don't hire people right out of beauty school because the job done on my daughter looked as if it was by someone fresh out of beauty school. I don't know how any of the other employees are, but I suggest if anyone goes here to ask ONLY for Carla because I know from personal experience she knows what she is doing.
