Our Staff

There are hundreds of salons in Plantation and thousands in the South Florida area. All of them will tell you they are staffed with talented experienced stylists. But here’s what sets us apart.

M. Evans is more than just a salon to us, it’s our home, and the staff is more than just a team of excellent stylists, we are family.

As a salon team we have over 80 years of experience. It’s that partnership that makes our salon unique. You’ll find us constantly conferring with each other to devise that perfect plan of action to achieve your hair vision.

We combine our talents, experience, creativity and energy to achieve one synonymous goal; a happy customer with fabulous hair.

We have true passion for our profession. We are artists who paint and sculpt on a canvas of hair. But a great cut or a beautiful color is not enough for us. We want you to relax, to laugh, to unwind, and most importantly, to leave our salon feeling like you too are part of our family.


As owner of the salon, my greatest responsibility is to ensure that all customers have the best hair experience possible.

I have 16 years of experience, but my passion is helping that client who is experiencing thinning hair. I work with my clients to achieve a style and color which works with their hair density.

I am knowledgeable on products which target thinning hair and can help steer you to those products which might work for you.


Focused and intense talent best describes this quiet storm.

Lauren knows her way around a pair of texture shears and is truly cutting edge with a razor. Never intimidated by the task at hand, she is the type of stylist unafraid to take her clients wherever they may want to take their style or color.

Excellent with the blow dry straights, amazing with the flat iron, phenomenal colorist, Lauren can give you that edgy look you’ve been struggling to achieve.

What makes Lauren such an exceptional stylist is that ability to listen intently, ask the right questions and deliver the cut and color you desire.
