About the Owner
Rhoni Firby is the salon owner and stylist at Evolve Salon & Spa. Rhoni has been in the industry for over 18 years. Her career has taken her to many exciting places. She has worked as a stylist and manager in many types of salons, including one that specialized in children and an upscale salon in Ann Arbor where she was a Color Specialist and Educator for 3 years. She made her way back to South Lyon after an exciting career with Redken 5 Avenue NYC. For more than a decade, Rhoni traveled the country as an educator for the best selling brand. She spent much of her time coaching, mentoring and training stylists to fine tune their craft. She taught salon professionals skills in the areas of Design, Color, Finishing, Product Knowledge, and Business. Rhoni received top honor when she was awarded the Educator of the Year award in 2001. She has also received national recognition for her Redken Certified Colorist accomplishment. She had the opportunity to work back stage at fashion shows and hair shows preparing models, took the stage herself in front of hundreds of stylists who were there to learn from her. She had the opportunity to work with celebrities such as Jessica Simpson and the pop group Eden’s Crush, among others.
After traveling nearly full time, and starting a family, she decided to slow it down a bit and get back behind the chair. As a long time employee of Total Dimension Artistic Salon, formerly in South Lyon, Rhoni saw the potential in the salon and its team. In December, 2008, she was approached by the owner to purchase the salon. She couldn’t pass up the opportunity to fulfill another one of her dreams, to own her own salon! Rhoni made the bold decision to close the salon in September 2010, and move to the new location and begin a new chapter with Evolve Salon & Spa. Her mission is to coach, lead, and mentor the salon professionals that work with her. Her passion and talent is education and she is so excited to invest her talents and skills into her own team.
Evolve Salon & Spa originated as the well-known Total Dimension Artistic Salon. As a part of the South Lyon community for almost 30 years, Total Dimension built itself on good customer service and educated stylists. When some major staffing changes took place in the fall of 2008, the long time salon owner decided it was time to move on. After changing hands in December of 2008, in the middle of a recessed economy, the salon seemed like it was going to fight an uphill battle. However, with an excited new leader and a new, energized team, the business grew. In September of 2010, it was time for another change. Total Dimension Artistic Salon was closed, and Evolve Salon & Spa was open in a brand new location! A new beautiful space where guests could come and relax and be pampered. A facility more conducive to spa services and other extras that clients enjoy.
The foundation of good customer service and an educated staff, coupled with a new environment and state of the art equipment and services, Evolve now offers guests a total experience. Our name is truly a representation of who we are, where we have been, and what we will become. We will continue to grow and transform, as we provide an experience for our guests where they can do the same.
