From the minute I enter the salon until I leave, I am appreciative of the spa-like atmosphere. And while all Aveda salons are wonderful, I appreciate Katie as my stylist, in that she listens to what I’m after from both an aesthetic and an ease-of-care perspective. I have tough hair to work with, but she gets it and gives me a great cut that grows out gracefully until my next appointment,

I have come to appreciate services at an Aveda salon where the stylist have all received the same training and use the same products. It’s a new experience for me and I like the advantage of feeling comfortable with the stylist who is available when I am available for a service.


Everybody is so nice! I walk in and who ever is at the front desk knows my name, whether I’m there to buy product or my appointment.

This place is great. I’ve had a hard time finding a place I like, and I think Evolution is going to be my forever salon! Maggie did a great job and was friendly. I’m a regular girl, not a salon girl, and go to Aveda mostly because I’m not allergic to the products, so it’s really nice to find somewhere where the staff don’t give me that gross high school mean girl feeling– while also genuinely doing good work on my super picky hair. 100% pleased!


I have been coming to the Evolution Salon since I moved back to Berkeley last year. I am always thrilled with my hair style after Jessica M. does her magic. I am a redhead in my early 50s struggling with the onset of grays. The texture and color of my hair have grown increasingly challenging. I have been doing box dye the past year and decided to take the plunge yesterday with some highlights and low lights. WOW….. the results are fabulous. I showed Jessica M. a picture and she made it happen! Great talent, great people, and super salon! Highly recommend!

I recently went to Evolution Salon to get a haircut, where there was plenty of parking right in front of the salon. As I entered I was warmly welcomed by the staff. Robin was very good at understanding what I was looking for and nailed it. The salon itself was very nice and clean, and would definitely recommend it to anyone. I will be back for sure.

I absolutely love this salon, and Vicky!
The salon has plenty of parking, is easy to find and has a nice atmosphere.
As for Vicky, I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my hair! She always gives me exactly what I ask for, and when I want something new but am unsure of exactly what I want, she always has a suggestion which turns out to be perfect! I’ve never had the confidence in a stylist to branch out from my normal color, until I started going to Vicky. I would highly recommend her.

Vicky did a great job with my hair color! Considering that it had been some time since I’ve done anything different I was pretty nervous. It took me a long time to get my curly hair to look healthy again therefore using bleach was kinda out of the question. However the product she used lightened the carefully appointed areas avoiding damaged to my hair. This girl knows what she’s doing along with having the patience to take over such challenges.

Your salon is very welcoming upon entering! Love how open and love all the natural light. My mom and I followed Sam to this shop because she is very good at what she does. Love too, that this shop is located where the old Elitches was.
