• Welcome to Evolution Salon. Evolution is an Aveda concept salon where your experience is as much about the people (both staff and clientele) as it is about how you look when you walk out the door.  At Evolution, there is a passion for hair. You can see it in the styles, you can see it in the products, and you can see it in the knowledge of our staff.  At Evolution, there is a passion for community evident in our support of local businesses and in our work with charities that are near and dear to our hearts. At Evolution there is also passion for personal discovery and growth. We tend to seek out new experiences and embrace the opportunities they provide for changing who we are as people. This passion has led us to create what we call the “Random Act of Evolution,” which, at its simplest, is doing something outside of your norm and being open to the experience.
  • A Random Act of Evolution is a little action you can take to step outside your personal routine. The thought is that the conscious effort of seeking a new experience, no matter how small, will have an effect on the person you are right now. It may even be the catalyst for some life-altering event. You never know if you don’t try. Random Act of Evolution: Take a different way home from work on Wednesday. Humans are creatures of habit, and our drive to and from work is a perfect example. Every day we travel the same roads until we become numb to our surroundings. Instead, shake up your routine and find a new way home. Be sure to take some time to look around when you do. You never know what great restaurants, funky shops or cool neighborhoods you might discover.
