Doesn't live up to the hype. I got a terrible haircut and it cost me $80.00. Not worth the $$$.

Wow, my hair was a complete disaster when I first came to Evolution. It was over processed, the coloring was a mess, and really I hated everything about it. Tanja first introduced me to the salon and worked with me on what I wanted my hair to look like. She knew exactly what to do and what I would love. It took awhile to get my hair back to a healthy state, with color that looked amazing! Tanja knows what to do each time I go in and always keeps the style current.
Micah cuts my hair and she always does an amazing job. She understands what I want and gives suggestions as well, that compliment my face shape.
I have never been happier with my hair! If you are looking to change your look then Evolution is the salon to go to!!!! I guarantee you will love your hair!

Pros: Great color, cut, fun atmosphere & very experienced stylists

Cons: It's a little pricey but worth it :)

Tanya Weller has been coloring my hair for 7 years. She always listens to my needs and offers her professional feedback. It's wonderful to work with someone that I can trust to achieve the perfect shade. She is a true joy to be around; I always look forward to my color appointments.

Most likely, you will be met at the front desk by Valerie. Her personality is like a breath of fresh air. She has a special way of making you feel welcome.

I have been a client for over 15 years! I have to say I've never had a bad haircut, color or styling. "Katie" always takes the time to see what's working for me, what needs to be changed, etc. I never worry about how I'll look when I leave.

I have been seeing Starr for a few months and couldn't be happier! She is always full of ideas and suggestions. She does an incredible job of both cut and color. One of the best hair stylists I have ever had!

Evolution goes beyond great customer service into the realm of hospitality. They give you quarters for the parking meter, offer you a beverage, a smile, and converse with you like a friend. I always look forward to my appointments here!

They have super cute decor and all of the stylists have great hair themselves. Both of these factors make me more secure that I am going to come out of there looking fabulous; and I always do!

I've been going to Evolution for over 15 years. Tanja is the only person who has ever colored my hair and the only one I trust to do it. I love getting compliments on my hair. Mark is an amazing hair stylist. My hair is straight with some swists and turns and is difficiult to get just right but he always does. I highly recommend Tanja and Mark!

I am a very critical person when it comes to hair cuts. It is because of my background in the cosmetology business. I have not practiced many years but I still keep my license up.
I have gone to many shops but I have found with Evolution they listen. We know our hair best and it is nice to go to a stylist who listens as well that gives feedback of what they think about the style that could best fit you.
I highly recommend Evolution to anyone who is looking for the right cut and style.

When I met Tanya, a couple of years ago, my hair was literally "fried" from over processing. She totally worked a "miracle" on me! Tanya is absolutely amazing with color, is very knowledgeable and up to date on her craft. She is now doing a keratin treatment which is phenomenal! I have thick, coarse and naturally wavy hair that I straight iron. Tanja just did this treatment on me and I am thrilled! I blew my hair dry with my fingers in half the time and was able to go out the door! My hair is straight and looks and feels incredible! Am sooo excited for the beach and pool this summer....no more "lion's mane"! The treatment lasts several months. I most definitely will have her do it again!!

Starr has been my hair dresser now for at least 4 years!! She is amazing, cut and color!! I always feel happy and love my hair when I leave Evolution. Starr also does free bang trims, if it isn't time for a full trim! Thank you Starr!!

Pros: Starr is amazing!!

I was always on the search for a new hair stylist. Trying one here and one there, but it wasn't until I found Starr that I was totally 100% happy with my hair. She always listens to what I want and advices according to my face shape and what will look best on me. I have tried so many styles with Starr, Bangs, Red, Layered, Dark, Highlights...there is nothing she hasn't made look fantastic. I would recommend Starr to everyone. She is also just a great person in general, so it's that much better to go get my hair done and talk with her!!

I'm so lucky that I found Star! My hair has never looked better! Star takes the time to consider my physical features and listen to my concerns. I've had a few different hairstyles and colors over the years and I've always been proud to show it off! Star makes me a Superstar of SE.

Pros: service, style, smiles

I love my hair now. Star has healed that relationship. After struggling for years between a cute hairstyle that took an hour to create or an easy hairstyle that made me look like a square-headed boy, Star has done what I was told was impossible - a cute AND easy hairstyle! Thanks so much!

Pros: Gives you what you ask for

.

I've been getting my hair done by Star for a few years now, she is awesome. Easy to talk to, listens to what you want and knows how to help pick style/color based on your face shape etc. I have never been dissapointed and have always LOVED my look and especially my color every time. I love the studio too, the edgy yet classy atmosphere and especially the broad choice of drink :).

Not only does this hair salon have a chic look with urban decor and a rustic modern setting, but the hairstylists have a gift of personal touch; making you think they know you better than you know yourself! At least they know your hair better than you do! They will give you the inside scoop on what looks best for your face structure and body type.

Thanks to talented and experienced hairstylist, Micah, I feel good in the hair I was given.

I would definitely recommend this place.

Pros: I came in as a Plain Jane and left as a Sassy Sylvia!

Cons: There isn't one in Hood River...

From the kind greeting by Valerie at the front desk through-out my entire appointment I feel treated, pampered, and special. I look forward to my appointments with Micah! Her scalp massages are OUT OF THIS WORLD! She does a fabulous job with coloring my hair-- my highlights and lowlights are done with such great detail and expertise. She is also an A+ when it comes to hair cuts. Plus she is interested in me!

I have been getting my hair done by Micah since 2005 and moved to Evolution Hair Design with her when she began work there in 2006. The salon is easy to find, easy to park at, and a wonderful place to relax while getting pampered!! I always tell Micah to just "do whatever" with both cut and color, and I have never been disappointed with the results. She is also very personable and remembers things I told her from previous appts. I also had Micah do my hair for my wedding, as well as all the hair of the wedding party. I brought her 3 pictures I liked, and she worked with me until the style was exactly what I had in mind. You'll love this place!!

Pros: Personable/Experience Stylist, Refreshments during service

.

Tanja is by far my favorite hair colorist ever. I have had every color of hair in the book. You name it. My hair was really damaged when we first met. I have been seeing Tanja now for almost 2 years. I trust her with my hair completely. I let Tanja do whatever she wants now. I definitly recommend scheduling and appointment with this woman. You won't be disappointment.

Pros: beauty bar and an amazing/experienced staff

From the time you are wamly greeted when you first arrive to the moment that your services are complete they make you feel so much a part of the Evolution family.
* I would like to say that TANJA is the best when it comes to color. She takes the time with each client to analyze what color would work best for skin tone and hair texture. Over the past 7 years I have see Tanja work her magic on myself as well as others. I also see STARR for my hair cuts. She takes the time to listen and she always understands what I am wanting. She is also great for looking at your face shape and recommending what hair style would look best.

No question - this is the best place in town. I've had Tanja do my color since 2006 - she is The Master, never a hard sell and she knows exactly what I need and want. Starr has been cutting my hair since 2008 and she's fantastic as well. I (foolishly) tried another salon sometime in 2007 and the result was disastrous after less than a year. I learned my lesson and am a happy lifer. Your hair makes a huge impression - trust these guys to make it fabulous. I know I do.

I had my hair done here for my wedding and it was INCREDIBLE! My hair made my entire outfit that day. It was totally unique. They had me come in a few weeks prior for a practice run and so everything ran smoothly on the day of. It made my day SO much more special. My bridesmaids came with me and they pampered us all with drinks and treats.
I've also gotten my hair cut here 2 or 3 times while I've been in the city and they do a fantastic job! They always take into account the shape of my face and my styling preferences. I would recommend Evolution to anyone! It's a first class place!

Emily was recommended to me by my sister who was living in Alaska. I was unhappy with my current stylist and decided to switch and am so glad I did. Emily listens to my needs and does a wonderful job. The staff is friendly and professional.

I love Shaina! She is so talented. I've been working on growing my hair out for 4+ years, so when I decided to go from black to blond, Shaina was recommended to me and I'm so glad I took the recommendation! She did it with hardly any damage at all and I've been able to maintain very health hair through the process because of her! Thank you Shaina!!

I have been going to Mark Putnam for many years and he continually listens to my needs. He is very progressive and when I have needed changes to update, he is the first to suggest a change. I have full faith in his artistic and technical abilities. I even get free trims in between cuts! I never plan to move from Mark. The staff is very professional. Tanya does the most beautiful color! I know another review said I needed to pay for parking, you don't. There are parking spots in front and you can park in the garage and they will validate!

Everyone is so nice. My particular girl does wonderfully on my haircuts. They give complimentary drinks while you wait or while you are being worked on. It is a super cute little place that is very interestingly decorated. They will pay for your parking. Thier prices are probably right around the same as any other nice salon...I'm just not used to going to this nice of a place, but I wouldn't go anywhere else even if it is a little expensive for me.

Being a curly girl, I have trouble finding the right stylist.
When I went to get my hair cut from Star, she was able to look at my face and find the right hairstyle for me. I have been a long time fan of straightneing my hair, but she showed me how to embrace the curl. I get many compliments and when I ever I leave the salon, I feel beautiful.

Love love love my hair cut! I went in there not really knowing what I wanted. It's hard to explain... I wanted something different but the same!?!

Micah not only cut my hair for me but was able to somehow fined EXACTLY the cut and look I was going for. She provided a couple of excellent options that she thought would best suite me. I had a hard time deciding because I liked them all however she worked with me to find exactly what I wanted as well as what I would be comfortable with.

Location is convent, atmosphere is chic and modern, customer service was great, and there prices are very reasonable. I will definitely be going back!
