Evolution Concepts in Hair & Spa

Evolution offers the hottest hair & beauty trends, high end products, total sustainability & zero environmental impact

For Vince Pasqualino, Sabrina Quessy and the whole creative team at Evolution Concepts in Hair & Spa, going beyond just the wedding day look for their brides is something they pride themselves on. Through their (free) bridal consultations they try to learn each bride’s personality and adapt a look to suit them, while keeping up with and understanding the latest looks and trends in all bridal aspects, not just the hair.

From simple to extravagant, serious to chic, and sexy to easy going, Evolution combines their education, dedication and thirteen years of experience to create wedding looks of all styles for men and woman alike. With a mission “to deliver superlative guest services in an inspired space that is respectful to both mankind and the environment,” it only makes sense that Kitchener-Waterloo, Cambridge and area brides and grooms already love Evolution. Let us tell you more…

Personally speaking…

Evolution Concepts in Hair & Spa is the realization of a dream that began many years ago for Owner Vince Pasqualino. In 1997, Vince began training under his Uncle, a well-respected and accomplished designer, which turned into a career in hair design. Vince was a platform artist for Sebastian International and was trained under world renowned ICON Robert Labetta, which lead him to his job at ICON International. Through this experience and training, Vince has become an artist with a unique vision for hair design, which he now expresses at Evolution.

Sabrina Quessy, the Bridal Consultant at Evolution, says she specializes in hair and make-up, which she has been doing for brides since 2001. But her own evolution never ends and she “continues to educate herself in the latest trends and fashions, not only in hair and make-up, but jewellery, accessories, wedding dresses and shoes.” Sabrina says she thrives on the magical energy of brides and weddings.

While Evolution opened in July 2005, they have been specializing in weddings for the last ten years. In the past year alone, the team at Evolution catered to over fifty bridal parties.

But it’s not just Vince and Sabrina who raise the bar at Evolution as the entire team is trained and experienced in bridal hair styles and make-up. “We are all inspired by each other’s unique and individual talents.”

Which is perfect since each team member plays “a key role in the success of planning, executing and following through with the events that lead up to that special day and making it as complete as possible,” says Sabrina.

What a bride wants…

The ideal bride for Evolution, is every bride. “No two people are alike whether it’s a simple bride, extravagant bride, serious, chic, sexy, easy going, they are all looking for someone to help them achieve their look for their special day,” says Sabrina. The ranging styles of brides allow the staff at Evolution to be more creative on every level and more artistic in order to manipulate the hair into new shapes unique to each individual.

“Modern with a classic feel” was how Sharon Stavrou described Evolution’s style. She had her hair, make-up and nails done at Evolution for her wedding and says that everyone there was very dedicated to making sure she was happy on her special day.

Rachel Sommers described Evolution’s style as friendly and inviting, yet professional and posh. She had her hair, make-up, manicure, pedicure and a massage all done at Evolution for her wedding and says that it was a great experience. “I felt comfortable that I was in the hands of people who knew what they were doing and would ensure it ran smoothly.”

“There is something to be said about working with brides,” says Sabrina who clearly has a passion for what she does. “It is truly the most amazing feeling to work with a bride and build that relationship on a more personal level.” And because each bride has her own unique personality, Sabrina says that each look is customized to reflect that personality. “We are inspired by this and also the aura of excitement and pure happiness that comes from the bride on her special day.”

Catering to the men

Evolution isn’t just for the girls. The Evolution team caters services to men as well, knowing full well that men like to look and feel their best, not just on their wedding day, but at home and work too.

Whether it’s a haircut, neck trim or a new look, Evolution has many male clients. In fact, they also do a number of manicure/pedicure sessions for men, particularly ahead of their wedding days.

Tips for the guys:

•    Get your hair cut one or two weeks ahead of the wedding day for the best look.
•    Try a tone-on-tone look with colour and highlights to create more depth and dimension.

More than just hairspray

Aside from the usual up-do’s and fancy bridal hair and make-up, Sabrina adds that they also offer hair accessories to add a personal touch to the hair or jewellery. As well as clip in hair extensions and real hair Euro extensions matched to your hair colour during the consultation.

As if the customized service weren’t enough, Evolution also offers a continental breakfast for the bridal party the morning of the wedding.

And, to make sure your look stays flawless all day, you also have the option of taking your stylist or make-up artist with you for your entire wedding day.

Rachel found Evolution to be very reasonably priced considering the service and quality she received.

Convenient and all-in-one…

On top of taking care of your hair and make-up for your special day, Evolution also offers complete spa services with enough room to accommodate a large bridal party; something that Sharon said was very convenient on her wedding day. She adds that Evolution’s prices were fair for what she received and fit within her budget.

“Evolution has a team of professionals that could work on my entire bridal party,” exclaims Rachel, who had ten people in total.

Evolution’s treatments attempt to create a relaxing and rejuvenating experience. After all, once you’ve finished all your planning and organizing and the day of your wedding is here, Sabrina says you should just “leave yourself in the hands of the professionals and relax.”

Which is something that Rachel certainly did. “Evolution gave me peace of mind to know that my bridesmaids and I were in the hands of professionals to ensure that we looked and felt our best on this special day,” she says. “They were organized and helpful and everything ran without a hitch. It was a great experience and one that every bride should have.”

I actually have quite a connection at Evolution because I got ENGAGED there!!! My now fiance called ahead to make sure it was okay with the staff if he surprised me during my pedicure with a proposal!! There I was sitting in the pedicure chair with my soon to be niece - Shanna and Erin were almost done working on our toes, when in walks a salon staff with a bouquet of flowers for me and Pete with his guitar! He started singing our song then got down on one knee and proposed! The staff were great - they even videotaped it for me and took pictures! Not only did I feel beautiful because I just got a pedicure, but the staff made me feel special by gathering and sharing in the excitement :) On my way out of the salon I noticed a sign they had beautifully made that said "congratulations Pete and Becky on your engagement!". How sweet! I have already had my wedding consultation and can't wait to have all my girls there with me getting beautiful on our big day - I know we will be in excellent hands!

Sabrina did my hair for the very first Brides' Ball, and I loved it, and have loved her ever since. Love all the stylists at this salon because they are talking and listening to their customers not chitchatting with each other like at some other salons I've seen. The stylists here take their time to make sure you are happy. I've never left not feeling really great about my hair or how I look. Luv Ya Sabrina!
