Introducing Revolution Ego, an 'Apple-inspired salon'




Yesterday, I had the pleasure of patronizing one of Charlotte's newest hair care salons, Revolution Ego. The Revolution Ego team (Tinesha, Kelly and Jessica) are three of the most friendly, fabulous stylists I've ever had the pleasure of spending a couple of hours with. My personal stylist, Tinesha, explained that their new salon, which has only been open for about a month, is an "Apple-inspired salon," which basically means that customers are invited to use the in-house iPads while being serviced. Even the music piped through the speaker system comes from the salon iPod. And the salon phone? You guessed it. The iPhone. They also offer free wi-fi should you choose to bring in your own laptop and my favorite, a complimentary glass of wine. Clients are not only able to relax and enjoy themselves, they can also surf the Internet, watch a movie while under the dryer or simply update their Twitter and Facebook statues, as I did for almost the entire duration my visit. What can I say, I'm a social media junkie.

Revolution Ego specializes in all types of haircare for every ethnicity. They do everything from custom color and curly sets to lock services and Anita Grant European Specialty Treatments, AND they do it all in an acceptable amount of time. Seriously ladies, how many times have you spent half of your day in the salon because your stylist was either running late, booked too many clients at one time or was just plain slow? Well, that is never a factor at Revolution Ego. These ladies run their business like, well, a business and really respect and value the personal time of each and every one of their customers. I'm sure by now you're all just itching to have your own Revolution Ego experience so, for your convenience, you can book an online appointment HERE or call them directly at 704-951-7386. As an added bonus, if you have a crazy busy work week Monday-Friday and you would rather spend time at home on Saturdays, this salon is even open on Sundays. (Closed on Monday and Tuesday)

Revolution Ego is located inside the trailblazing Sola Salon in Dilworth at 2000 South Blvd., Suite 120.
