Additionally, only the best wax is used to remove your unwanted face and body hair for both men and women. Sculpting eyebrows, removing unwanted chest and back hair, and cleaning up your bikini line are just a few examples of Evolve’s hair removal options.

Speaking of skin, Evolve Salon and Spa has added organic spray tanning to its spa department. Nearly everyone feels better with a tan and this is without the harmful UV rays from the sun or tanning beds. Sjolie tanning spray is vegan and together with our experts’ touch, you’ll receive a healthy and even glow. A great option for regular sun lovers to those needing a spruce up before a special event, Evolve’s Sjolie spray tanning will suit your individual needs.

Evolve offers microblading services such as eyebrows, lip, and eyeliner and is perfect for someone looking for a more permanent look! Microblading is a cosmetic tattoo that enhances the natural shape and looks of your brow, lip, or eye. 3D eyebrows can mimic the natural hair of your brows making them look fuller and realistic. Evolve’s certified artist offers complimentary consultations.

Evolve is proud to offer a healthy and safe variety of massage services in the spa.

Hair Salon

Evolve offers hair services for women, men, and children; whether you are looking for a short haircut, a color service, or a whole new transformation, we have you covered! Evolve offers complimentary consultations for all your hair questions! Let our highly skilled and talented stylists take you to your hair goals by letting them know all of your questions and concerns before beginning your service. During every consultation, our stylist will take the time to listen. Our specialists will help you choose from various colors, cuts, and styling options, leaving you looking and feeling your very best self.

Evolve stylists use several techniques to achieve dimensional looks. Balayage is a technique where bleach or color is hand-painted on the hair in a sweeping motion to create a softer, more blended look. Foilyage is a technique where the hair is hand-painted and then placed in a foil. During a highlighting service, your Evolve stylist will section off your hair, and then more minor, woven sections are painted and put through the foil to process. State-of-the-art Highlighting techniques create brighter, more dimensional hair, which is why Evolve Salon and Spa hairstylists stay up to date with the changes in the field. If you are looking for one all-over color or touching up your grey roots, we recommend booking a Single Process Color. This one-step process can bring life back into your dull, drab hair.

Our Brazilian Blowout service helps tame frizz, creates shine, and makes the hair more manageable with a reduced time in blow drying! The Brazilian Blowout does not take the curl from the hair, if there is any. Split ends are a concern for many; book a Brazilian Blowout Split End Treatment with any color service to protect and seal your ends for extra shine. An Express Brazilian is a quick service that can help maintain your hair’s frizziness for a short period.

A simple glazing or toner service added to your haircut or blowout can also help with vibrancy and add shine. Fashion colors such as blue, pink, purple, green, and teal are fun ways to show your creativity with your hair. Our goal during any of our chemical services is to achieve the best color without compromising your hair. We use the best products such as Wella ME+ color (free from PPD), Wellaplex 1, 2 & 3, and Blondorplex to protect your hair from damage.

For someone looking to add length or fullness to their hair, we offer Extension services. Hot Heads tape-in extensions come in a variety of colors and shades. Stop by for a complimentary consultation about our tape-in extensions, and one of our stylists can help match the perfect extensions for you! Frizzy and unruly hair is often hard to manage.

Keratin Complex is a customizable treatment that can help reduce curl patterns, frizz, and create shine. We have numerous deep conditioning services for damaged, over-processed hair, and these treatments are customizable by your stylist to your individual needs. Kerastase treatments such as Fusio Dose, Indulgent Ritual, and Protocole Immunite nourish and deeply penetrate the hair leaving a silky-smooth finish. The luxury Chronologiste treatment uses pearl Abyssine collected 300 meters below sea level, delivering shine, softness, bounce, luster, and deeply nourishing the hair and scalp.

Massage Spa

After a stressful day, our Massage Therapy services will help reduce muscle tension and relax the whole body. Massage therapy has numerous benefits for the mind and body. Evolve offers different variations of timing for our massage therapy services. A 30-minute Neck, Back, and Shoulders Massage is perfect for someone on the go. Need a little extra care? Enjoy one of our 90-minute full-body massages for total relaxation.

If you are very active, the body tightens up as muscles are stiff at work. Evolve’s Massage Therapists will help loosen those muscles and tough knots and help improve flexibility in our Sports Massage. Inflammation and arthritis are some of the most common ailments in people with joint pains and stiffness. Add on Doterra’s Deep Blue Rub to any of our massage services to help increase blood flow and reduce inflammation. Deep Blue Rub is formulated with essential oils and ingredients like wintergreen and peppermint, leaving a warming and cooling sensation.

A Hot Stone add-on can also help penetrate deep into those sore muscles giving you overall relief in muscle tension. The stones are warmed to the perfect temperature and vary in size, allowing your therapist to place the rocks on crucial areas of the body. Hot Stone Massage helps expand the blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. Our talented therapists can help you decide which essential oils will benefit your body the most when doing an Aromatherapy Massage. If you prefer a light to medium pressure, then we suggest booking our Signature Swedish Massage. This classic massage is perfect for individuals newly introduced to massage therapy or people more sensitive to pressure.

A client who has received massage therapy services before may opt for a firmer pressure with our Deep Tissue Massage. Another classic, the Deep Tissue massage, really penetrates the muscle tissues, a result you will feel! Prenatal massages are beneficial for expecting mothers experiencing back, neck, shoulder, and foot pain. Prenatal massages can also help reduce the stress and anxiety of expecting mothers and even help with labor. Your Massage Therapist will apply gentle and appropriate pressure during the massage. The proper placement of pillows allows for maximum comfort.

Cupping is an alternative medicine therapy practice that helps to promote blood flow. This therapeutic bodywork focuses on creating a vacuum seal with plastic cups that bring blood to the skin’s surface while expelling negative energy from the body. Cupping improves overall vitality, reduces pain, and loosens the muscles. Evolve Salon and Spa offers Reflexology Massage. This popular treatment focuses on specific pressure points of the hands and feet. Your massage therapist uses a unique massage technique with their thumb, finger, and hand. 

Massage releases toxins from the body, so stay well hydrated before and after your massage services. Water is beneficial to keeping your skin and body healthy, but it also flushes out any of those unwanted toxins and keeps you hydrated.

Skin Care Clinic and Waxing Salon

Do you have skincare concerns such as blemishes, dry or oily skin, dark puffy eyes, flushing/redness, or hyperpigmentation? Our Master Esthetician can answer all your pertinent skincare questions and needs with a complimentary skin analysis! Whether an adult or teen, dead skin cells, oil, and debris often clog pores leaving skin acne-prone or looking dull and aged.

Evolve offers a unique acne facial treatment designed to rid unwanted acne. We are proud to work with, and offer iS Clinical products, a safe cosmeceutical skincare line for all skin types. Our specially formulated iS Clinical products penetrate deep into the skin, clearing out all unwanted debris.

We offer a variety of Facials for anyone and everyone. Feel at ease as our Master Esthetician has extensive training in the iS Clinical skincare line and Esthetics overall. All of Evolve’s Facial services will leave your skin feeling relaxed and rejuvenated!

Hyperpigmentation causes uneven tones in the skin and can be different for everyone but usually results in dark spots on the skin. We can help support and combat environmental aggressors, resulting in brighter skin and reducing uneven skin tones. SPF, or sunscreen, is vital to maintaining and protecting healthy glowing skin from harmful UV sun rays. Microdermabrasion is a specialty service that can be an add-on to a Facial or as a stand-alone treatment.

Microdermabrasion removes the uneven outer layer of the skin with a minimally abrasive instrument that sands the skin, leaving your skin rejuvenated and smoother. This rejuvenation process is ideal for anyone looking to reduce the appearance of discoloration, sun damage, or light scarring. Let our Master Esthetician provide you with a unique treatment program that will help reduce signs of aging, wrinkles, blemishes, blackheads, and more! Your skin will be glowing!

Waxing hair removal services are quick and painless. We use hard or soft wax based on your individual needs and take the time to treat the skin before and after your waxing. From brow shaping to leg and bikini, or any of our other waxing services, you will leave feeling silky smooth from our aftercare treatment. Shaving sensitive areas often cause skin irritation such as bumps, rashes, or ingrown hairs. An excellent alternative to shaving would be our Brazilian Wax.

Our Master Esthetician has perfected the art of waxing, making it as painless as possible during your Brazilian service. Evolve provides waxing services not only for women but also for our gentlemen clientele. Hair removal has become more popular with gentlemen receiving back, chest, or even excellent brow waxing.

Gewhol foot care products were developed in Germany by a pharmacist and helped a variety of common foot disorders, such as cracked, dry, and callused feet. Gehwols ingredients include essential oils, avocado oil, vitamin E, and many more.

RevitaLash Eyebrow and Lash Conditioners are paraben, phthalates, BHT, and gluten-free! These non-irritating products are ophthalmologists formulated and help protect and strengthen your lashes and brows.

Spray Tanning Salon

Everybody feels better when their skin emanates a stunning bronze glow. For years the only solution was tanning beds or soaking in the sun for hours, risking harmful skin conditions and even skin cancers. As the beauty and wellness industry advanced, industry professionals wanted to develop a better solution to achieving that natural glowing look without the harmful tanning beds or soaking in the sun’s UV rays.

Evolve researched many alternative tanning solutions and ultimately decided on the SJolie Tanning Solutions. Sjolie is an airbrushed spray tanning application. The ingredients in all of their solutions are naturally derived, PETA Certified Vegan, and used worldwide. Sjolie is free of parabens, erythrulose, and fragrance.

Spray tanning can protect you in several ways. The sun can cause many harmful effects to the skin, such as sunburn, premature aging, wrinkles, or sunspots. One of the most effective solutions to the sun’s harmful damage to the skin is spray tanning! Book a tanning session before your next beach trip or vacation to start your tan with an even base and help prevent sunburn.

Having an even glow can boost your confidence and have you looking your best on any occasion! Every bride wants that perfect glow on their wedding day, and we can help you achieve that look. Our talented professionals can help you pick the level of tan you desire. SJolie’s tan development chart enables you to choose the perfect shade with solutions that feature an Aloe Vera base. This organic solution is applied evenly throughout the body with an airbrushed technique, free from smears.

Evolve provides a clean, private room for the tanning application, making it a comfortable experience for any guest. Our professional artist will apply a barrier base cream to the palms and bottom of the feet to prevent unwanted discoloration. They will take measures to protect your hair. The application is thorough and, on average, only takes about 30 minutes! To achieve the best results, we always recommend following the proper before and aftercare.

We use SJOLIE Sunless products.

  • They are naturally derived. The entire spray tan product line contains naturally derived ingredients certified vegan by PETA Foundation.
  • They are made Fresh. Direct partnerships with ingredient farmers provide guaranteed demand for their harvest, allowing them to better plan their crop rotations to grow specialty ingredients just for SJOLIE.
  • Safe. The entire spray tan product line is free of Parabens, erythrulose, and fragrances.

Before any tanning session, please make sure you exfoliate; we recommend at least 18-24 hours before. You may use a scrub or a loofah with shampoo. Exfoliating has several benefits, not only for your tan but for your skin! It helps stimulate blood flow, removes excess dead skin cells, and smooths out the skin preparing it for an even tan. On the day of your tanning session, please wear dark, loose-fitting clothing.

Please do not wear any deodorant, perfume, or body lotions, as this can create an uneven tan. Do not shower before the recommended time, as the solution needs time to develop. Following your session, please avoid excessive sweating as this can cause unevenness in your tan. You have the option to sleep in your tan; if doing so, please make sure that you wear a long sleeve, dark cotton shirt, and long bottoms to avoid any transfer on your sheets. When you do shower, always pat dry the body and do not rub. Our spray tanning professionals recommend using a gentle body wash to extend the life of your tan. Evolve has tanning packages available to fit all budgets! Book your tanning services today!

Chris is a big believer in continuing education which is why he continues to perfect his trade at the Wells Institute in New York City. Continue reading his bio here.


Evolve Salon and Spa opened its doors in Ashburn on February 1st, 2016, and proudly serves the diverse residents of Northern Virginia and the DMV. Evolve’s owners are Christopher Whitmore and Sonia Kasbarian, two hairstylists who have a passion for their industry and shared a deep desire to create a modern salon and spa in a prime location. Christopher and Sonia were brought together in 2014 by the well-known owners of The Fitness Equation, Chuck Wilson, and Ahmad Kangerloo.

The Fitness Equation was looking to open a 42,000 square foot location in One Loudoun and was interested in featuring an upscale salon and spa inside the gym. Chuck and his family knew both Christopher and Sonia and, in a nutshell, brought them together to explore the idea of the two of them teaming up to open in The Fitness Equation.

Christopher and Sonia shared a dream and vision of the relationship between fitness, beauty, and wellness. Their relationship grew both together and with their families. They began to develop a strong plan. While brainstorming for a name for the salon and spa, Sonia mentioned Evolution as an idea. Immediately, Christopher loved it but thought the root word, Evolve, sounded amazing. The two of them agreed and the name Evolve Salon and Spa was born. However, a lot more had to be done.

This all happened in the fairly early stages of One Loudoun. The large building wasn’t even built yet. After a lot of hard work creating a sound business plan, the owners of both businesses worked with a renowned architect outside of New York City to develop everything from the blueprints down to design specs for the gym, salon, and spa.

Meanwhile, Christopher and Sonia worked hard to execute the business plan for their space and assemble a team. Their vision included departments in hair, nails, skincare, massage therapy, and the best of professional products. Together, they developed a unique modern design including a color bar, relaxation spa room, movable stations to provide for an educational environment, and a high-tech safety air ventilation system. 

Evolve has a great sense of community. First, yours and the publics’ health is respected with our significant investment in enhanced sanitation practices and innovative protection equipment. We take everyone’s health seriously. In the past 5 years, Evolve has gladly raised funds or donated to local places such as The 3 B’s Foundation benefiting breast cancer, Women Giving Back, The Tin Cup Foundation, Potomac Falls High School, Hazel Reid Elementary, Newton Lee Elementary, and many more. Simply said, Evolve believes in giving back to the local community.

Evolve Salon and Spa welcomes walk-ins and prides itself on word of mouth referrals that have built valuable long-term relationships with clients. Evolve values The Fitness Equation members who take the opportunity to enjoy their 15% discount on select services 3 days a week and the convenience of Evolve’s location.

Evolve offers an online store which was added to give you the satisfaction of safety and service in a timely manner. Evolve has developed strong relationships with its business partners and vendors which allows for regular significant price reductions on products it offers to compete with online competitors. Evolve Salon and Spa appreciates your support of its small business and encourages the patronage of your community small businesses.
