ABOUT EVOLVE’S JOURNEY AND MISSION
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.
