Yesterday was my first and last time as a client. I have Never had such a unprofessional experience at a hair salon. The receptionist was very Rude. I requested a short hair cut from Mark and even showed him the length that I wanted my hair cut. I left the salon not having received the short hair cut. I went to another hair salon who had a opening and Paid Again for my hair to be cut this time leaving having received what I asked for. This is the first time in my life that I have been so unhappy with a hair cut that I have Paid Two times in one day for a hair cut!
I have read in The New York Times that some reviewers on sites are paid to place a positive review. The only explanation that I can think of for a positive review is the person is a friend or is being paid.

Matt is absolutely awesome. I can??t say enough about how great he is! I have never had a stylist pay that much attention to what I want now and in the future with my hair. He also took the time to really analyze what he thinks in his professional opinion would work for me. He really knew what he was talking about too. He explained why or why not certain hair cut methods and/or color work on my hair. I felt he really individualized my cut and color. He is very personable too!

I don??t think it is possible to have an appointment with Matt and not be completely sold on him. It is more than I typically spend, but he doesn??t push anything or try to sell/add on ??extras.? He will only have you do what you want and/or what is needed. For instance, since I am growing out my hair I only need to come in every four months! Every other person I went to before told me eight weeks at most. So, I will save my money to afford him, it is totally worth every dollar!

For the first time in over a decade, I am able to walk out of the house with wet hair and not be afraid of what its going to look like in a couple of hours. I have very thick, VERY frizzy, hair. It takes many hours to dry and straighten and I would have to schedule my week around when I'd have time to do it. A week ago...

I've had my hair cut there a few times. I don't get many haircuts because I like my hair long. Sarah is a great stylist. Her rate is reasonable and very worth it. Matt one of the owners also cut my hair and he is also an amazing stylist. He costs more of course but also very worth it.
The place is clean and modern. You can lounge on comfortable couches while you wait for your appointment or for your girlfriend to get her hair done. The offer drinks and snacks as well so I love having a glass of wine while I get my hair did.

Love the place suggest it to anyone and everyone.

Evolution is an experience like no other salon. I have been a client of Heidi's for over 10 years, most of that time while living in NYC. While I went to other salons and had stylist throughout the years attempt to measure up to what Heidi has always delivered, amazing hair! Now back in Minneapolis what was a twice a year trip has turned into a regular stop to sit back, relax and let Heidi create my lastest look. She is truly talented!!! Thanks Heidi!!

Best color/cut experience in the city. The newly remodled salon is so gorgeous and spacious. Heidi S. is the best artist in the salon, HANDS DOWN! She can really turn your normal everyday look and give it whatever style/attitude you desire. She also offers great insight if your lost and have no direction. I visit her every 6 weeks religiously!

I go to Mel and she is one of the best stylists I have gone to in years! I always get compliments when she does my hair and she knows how to work with my natural curl. I am very fussy about my hair and I have never been disappointed. Mel is so nice and easy to talk too and she wants to be sure everyone is satisfied before they leave. The salon is absolutely beautiful as well, since their new renovation last fall. Definitely, a classy salon!

Mel and everyone at Evolution is amazing! I have been going to the salon for about 3 years - I always feel welcomed and I always leave completely satisifed. If you haven't seen their new remodel, you gotta check it out! This is NOT your typical salon.

I get my hair cut by Mark Dolan who really knows what he is doing! I walk out every time feeling like a rock star.

I have curly hair, and Mark takes the time to first cut it when it's wet, then blow dry, straighten, and then recut to make sure everything is perfect. He does it in less than an hour, and always welcomes me back in just for a quick style before events.

The product line is awesome, and the prices are unbeatable for the skill-level presented by Mark. Best place for a hair cut in town!

Cons: Can't think of any, and I'm being honest.

I have been here twice now, and Mel cut my hair both times. I would go every time I need a cut, but I currently live in Oregon. She does good work, is awesome to chat with, and I'll be sure to be back the first chance I get!

Oh, good pricing too; but I'm a guy and haircuts pricing is usually pretty standard.

The decor is super relaxing. Nothing snobbish about this salon. The music was wonderful (iPOD mix). My stylist, Mel, took great care of me. She gave me the style & color I requested + threw in a deep conditioning treatment! That made up for the wait.
I would recommend this place to all of my friends & family. Mike, an owner at Evolution, has created a warm inviting environment for all to enjoy.
My hair cut is still fabulous and I will be a regular client!
Thanks guys! Keep up the great work.

Cons: 30 minutes behind schedule...wait was a bit long.

I don't normally write reviews but after my experience at Evolution, I just had to. I am very picky with my hair and have been to places like Tres Jolie but I never was too happy with the haircuts anywhere... that is until Mark cut my hair! He listened to me but also had his own suggestions and the outcome was great! He did not rush with the haircut and paid special attention to the details that make a haircut perfect. I cannot tell you how happy I am with the service I received! Everyone else was also very friendly and professional. I would definitely recommend Evolution Experience!

Two names: Sarah and Mark!

I go to Mark for coloring, and to Sarah for my cuts- and I have the best hair this side of Minneapolis :] Anyone who is anyone comes to this salon. They have all the newest magazines while you wait, have a glass of Diet Coke and listen to some good tunes. Color is always vibrant, and the styling last for the next couple days.

Come to Evolution!!!!

Found this salon through Citysearch, and it is definitely the BEST hair coloring experience I have ever had!
I know everyone always says the same thing? ??I??ve been looking for years to find the right person to do my hair! And I??ve always disappointed. Well, ladies and gentlemen, I can honestly and happily say that ??I??VE FINALLY FOUND MY PERFECT HAIR GIRL!? Heidi is the best colorist in the Twin Cities. Heidi made my hair look healthy and shinny AND the correct color. Everywhere I have gone since Heidi colored my hair I have received comments like I love your hair! Even my husband has made comments! Heidi you are wonderful, and I look forward to years of beautiful hair!!!

I was referred to Mike at Evolution last fall and I am absolutely hooked! For the last 10 years I've been going to Juut and can't believe I've been missing out on the Evolution experience all this time! Since September I've been in to the salon one to two times per month for various services and every time they have exceeded my expectations! The staff is so friendly and fun, I look forward to visiting with everyone each time I go. I work full-time and have two young children and can't say enough about how much I enjoy going in to pamper myself and always leave feeling refreshed and looking fabulous! I receive so many compliments on my hair now and everyone asks where I go and I always recommend they go to Evolution!

Mel has consistently given me hair that I am proud to rock. She is always thorough and friendly with something a little fresh every time. I know it's probably just my natural good looks, but the ladies seem to run their hands through it and give it a good pull whenever I am out. That's Real! Oh and she's smokin hot.

I have been going here since they opened, and had previously gone to Heidi where they were in St. Paul. Everyone is nice, and they are great with cut and color. My only issue is how much the prices have gone up. I probably wont be able to afford to continue to go there because of it - the last time I was a long-term client of a stylist, she did not increase my prices as hers went up, because I was a long-term client.

My facial with Nellie was not only an extremely relaxing experience, but I was given advice and tips for taking care of my skin that is specific for my personal needs. She is very professional and skilled at what she does and has lots of knowledge she is willing to share. It is well worth the time and money to treat yourself to one of her facials!

In need of a facial or maybe just a revamp on your make-up. Maybe your still doing your 90's eyeliner, and need someone to teach you the new styles....Nellie is one! I have had the luxury of having many facial and it's always out of this world! She makes you feel like a Queen and you forget where you are! IT'S THAT GOOD:) This is my one and only addiction!! So treat yourself to a full day of beauty (hair with Heidi and a facial with Nellie)and I promise you girls/guys will be Thanking me later! Another thing I just want to throw out there, is I had Nellie teach my daughter how to wear her make-up. I couldn't handle the teenage "let me use the whole pencil around my eyes" look anymore but she wasn't going to listen TO HER MOM, so I sent her to Nellie. I will tell you!! When my daughter walked out I started crying! She looked so beautiful! Thanks to Nellie my daughter is still wearing her make-up that way; because "Nellie said".
Times are hard and I know (being a mother of 4) this is my mini vacation from the world and when I walk out no matter what I go there for, I walk out feeling like ME; not mom, not wife,not daughter...I walk out remembering that confident person. It's my rejuvenation for every day life, holiday party, family gathering or ANYTHING I need a little boost for. I go see my girls; Heidi for hair and Nellie for my face! Treat Yourself or someone else and ENJOY the rewards!

Nellie is amazing. She waxed my brows right before my wedding and they looked great. She was the first person who didn't try to make them more thin. I had no irritation or little red bumps like I have had with other people. She also did my makeup on my wedding day and I can't tell you how many people have asked who did my makeup. I loved the way it looked. It was natural yet just the right amount for photos. I would recommend her to anybody! Plus she's very sweet and down to earth!

Last week, I got one of the best facials of my life from Nellie at Evolution. Prior to then, I'd just gone to her for brow waxing, tinting and eyelash tinting (all of which I *highly* recommend). However, I'm very picky about my skin and it's been dry and very sensitive since winter started this year. Nellie was very patient listening to my concerns and had great suggestions. She has a very good touch about her and my skin never felt pulled or "handled" like some other facials I've gotten. I left the salon feeling very relaxed -- money well spent. (I was at two holiday parties over the weekend and was happily suprised by the compliments I got on my skin.) My overall visit was very relaxing. She has a very quiet, private room set off from the main part of the salon -- it feels very much like a high end spa (but without all the uptight snobbery). Everyone at the front desk was very welcoming and helpful, too. And parking right next to the building was a bonus -- much easier that other places downtown or in Uptown.

I'm a plucker. And I'm terrified of overplucking and looking eyebrow-less. This was my first time getting my eyebrows waxed so I braced myself for the worst pain, but I was surprised by how quick and relatively painless the whole process was (thank you Nellie!). I never knew my eyebrows could look like that! It was cheap and totally worth it. I'm a fan.

This is the BEST salon in the Twin Cities. And MEL IS THE BEST STYLIST!!! She consistently gives me FABULOUS color and GREAT cuts. She is extremely intuitive, knowledgeable and talented. And she's a lot of fun to talk to. In addition, the salon staff and owners treat you like a queen here. If you want to escape the chain salon hell and receive personal service, please visit Evolution. You won't be disappointed.

When I walked in they all were very welcoming. They listen to what I was looking for and they also gave me some advise on how to improve the look I was trying to achieve. I was very comfortable at Evolution my whole entire experience there. They have great music to listen to and they are really fun to talk with. Matt and Mike are both very knowledgeable in what they do. They really try to explain to you what they are about to do to your hair. Those two guys work great as a team. I definitely can't wait until I get split ends or my color needs to be touched up. Lol I have been looking for another salon since the lady who usually does my hair moved. I am a very satisfied customer and I of course will be back.

Sincerely, C

Matt and Mike are both very knowledgeable in what they do. They really try to explain to you what they are about to do to your hair. Those two guys work great as a team. I definitely can't wait until I get split ends or my color needs to be touched up. Lol I have been looking for another salon since the lady who usually does my hair moved. I am a very satisfied customer and I of course will be back.

Sincerely, C

I've been a customer of Evolution for the last 3.5 -4 years now. I always look forward to my appointment because everyone that works there is really friendly and have become almost like family over the years.
Mike is my stylist and he's great, he always has ideas to freshen up my look - either with color, cut or both. Then there is always the joy of getting to hang out with Marco (the man behind the curtain). In general if you are looking for a new stylist, full of talent and forward thinking - Evolution may be the place for you. Friendly, relaxed environment and always aiming to please!

From an amazing hair cut to a relaxing atmosphere-- Evolutions truly is an evolution in the salon experience. Everyone from receptionist to stylist is a professional. I am lucky to have stumbled upon Heidi, who is a wonder. I have traveled the world and have gotten styles from top salons, and Heidi truly is the best-- a hair prodigy. She knows exactly what to do, and is up to date in the latest trends and fashions. Thank you Evolutions and thank you Heidi.

Cons: None

This past winter I was going to be traveling for over a month and did not want to have to fuss with my hair. Heidi had the perfect solution. She put extensions in my hair that were undetectable, easy to care for, and had the additional benefit of making me look better than I hoped. I highly recommend having Heidi put in extensions in your hair.

I have been visiting Heidi at Evolution and no one will ever touch my hair again except for her. She cuts, she colors, she highlights, she styles-- and she does it all to perfection. I can say with certainty that I have never once walked out of that salon disappointed with her work or the rest of the salon folks. She has worked with me through various colors and styles (including me once bringing in a pic of Britney Spears. I know, I know . . . ) She is a perfect gauge for helping me decide what I really want as opposed to what I think I want that day and am going to hate myself for in the morning. On many occassions I just sit down and ask her to do whatever she thinks and I have never been regretful. I just received my second (annual) set of hair extensions -- not a full head, just a few fun colored ones. I am in the legal profession and my colleagues wouldn't normally be accepting of pink (last year) or burgundy (now) hair, but I went for it anyway. Heidi placed them so I can easily play them up or hide them for court. She is good, people. Really good. Even if you are someone who thought you would never want extensions, you will change your mind after you try it once. You should check her out. She won't let you look too old or young for your age. The rest of the crew is great too. And, really, shouldn't you have your hair done by good looking people?! I think so. Go there now.

I have been going to Heidi for many years and she AMAZING! I go to Evolutions to relax and release all my stress! I never have to tell Heidi anything, I just sit down in the chair and let her do her work. I enjoy EVERY minute from my hair getting washed, the environment, Marco(who always brightens my day), Nellie- dying my eye brows, to when I walk out feeling like a MILLION BUCKS! I do not live close so it is a drive for me, But it is worth every minute!!! My hair is in the best condition it has ever been! I know that Heidi will keep me looking up to date and not allow me to turn into a frumpy mother of 4!!!

I have been coming to Evolution for the past 6 months and see MEL. She is amazing when it comes to coloring and cutting! I give her a general idea of what I want when I sit in the chair..and she delivers above and beyond! I never thought my hair would look so beautiful and healthy! My hair looks good even when I don't style it! She is also a good educator on what products I should be using! Overall, she is the biggest sweetheart and is REALLY good at what she does. Great Experience!

I can't stop looking in the mirror at my hair! I gave Sarah free reign with my foil and cut. (whenever I've requested a certain style from any stylist - it has always been awful) I love my color and the cut is fabulous. Best of all the salon is clean and comfortable and Mike and Matt are sweet. It had been a while since I had my hair done and it felt so good to sit in the chair and relax. Sarah must have instinctively understood that, because she gave me a great scalp massage in the shampoo bowl and made me feel very comfortable! I had a glass of wine too! Thanks to Sarah my hair is my crowning glory!

I can't say that this is the only place to go because there are so many salons in minneapolis.

I wont say that they are the best because i am certain there are equally great stylists in minneapolis.

I should not claim to know everything there is to know about salons because I have only lived in just a few of these major Cities: Vancouver, NY, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, London

However What I can say is that the people are great and that after trying every style from A - Z I have yet to be disappointed with the E experience.*

This place has an esthetician too! You have got to experience her facials, they are amazing! She is not only sweet, but smart! She listens, and takes care of you and I am NEVER disappointed. She is not only a skincare expert, but also an amazing make-up artist!
I always leave with my skin glowing! Go see Nellie @ evolution!

Every time that my children or I have or hair cut and colored by either Matt or Heidi, it always, always, comes out amazing. Honestly we have never come out of the salon disappointed. Not only are there services great, it is a lot of fun to be around the whole group that works there. Marco is a huge asset to their salon.

Matt cuts and colors my hair. Besides being pretty damn hot, he has given me the best haircuts I have ever had and I have NEVER been dissapointed in over a year. He has also pushed me to try different things with my hair and I always love it. They know what they are doing at Evolution, many people I know go to him or Mike.
