Our Story

An award winning boutique hair salon that combines classic and contemporary hairdressing with a focus on enhancing the health of your hair without compromising on style

​Founded in 2010, Zowie Evans Hairdressing has built an outstanding reputation based on skill, trust and exceptional service. LUX-Life Magazine recognised this achievement by awarding us 2020 Most Client Focused Hair Salon and 2021 Melbourne Hair Salon of the Year.​

​Our salon is architecturally designed and conveniently located amongst the bustling boutique end of the Lygon Street precinct in Carlton. It is a strong reflection of who we are and our style philosophy – contemporary yet subtle, confident and bespoke.​

​All guests are warmly greeted upon arrival and offered an extended service time as standard. This ensures our team of exceptionally talented stylists have sufficient time to provide each guest the attention and care they deserve while enjoying a freshly ground coffee or brewed tea of choice. Post consultation, all guests are invited to relax in our reclining massage shampoo lounges while enjoying a complimentary scalp massage.​

​As hair health experts, we specialise in hair restoration and repair without compromising on style by using and recommending professional only products matched with a personalised treatment plan to maintain the style and health of your hair in-between visits.

We are inclusive and have a gender neutral approach to our service pricing – hair is hair after all. In addition to being community minded, we are conscious of the impact salons have on the environment and have up to 95% of our waste collected and sustainably disposed through our partnership with Sustainable Salons Australia. This was recognised once again by LUX-Life Magazine awarding us the 2020 Enviro-Excellence Award for Sustainability.​

​As a Salon Select Gold member, we also continue to meet and exceed the standards set by the Australian Hairdressing Council by maintaining an advanced professional standard of business, commitment to continuous training and superior guest experience.
