i needed a hair cut pretty badly after the beating my hair took from the wedding (growing it out and then all that hairspray) and the sun this summer. i usually go to bristles but saw this post on the scout charlottesville blog about the brand new evolve – eco friendly hair design studio right near my office. willow (barbara) was able to fit me in pretty quickly due to a cancellation and i’m enjoying my new do. i asked willow to give me a healthy trim and if she wanted to do something drastic or exciting, i would be open to it. my hair looks much the same as it did when I went in, but much healthier, a little shorter, and better shaped. she recommended we brave some bangs on my next visit.
the salon is beautiful. very sparse and open and quiet – new for a hair place. the geranium oil head massage after the shampoo was quite lovely and i’m sure would be even better after a long day of work than before the day begins.
i do love bristles, so i’ll have to see how i feel when i’m due for my next hair cut, but evolve is definitely recommended for a good quality hair cut. standard cuts run ~$55.
