Kimberly "Mickey" Evans
Salon Owner, Stylist, Artist, Author
I was born and raised in the Great Northwest, and have been in Beautiful Gig Harbor since 1999. I have 2 adult daughters and 5 grandchildren. I live with my 3 dogs and 5 chickens. I have a vintage camping trailer and hit the road whenever I can. I ride a motorcycle in the summer so forgive the jeans and riding boots on occasion!
The name "Mickey" is a nik-name I earned in Hair School because I am a dedicated Disney Fan! I graduated from Puyallup High School in 1986, so I understand "big" hair and love 80's hair band tunes!
I studied Cosmetology at the Gary Manuel AVEDA Institute in Seattle, WA where I received an amazing education and planted my skills deep in Precision Hair Cutting, Custom Hair Color, Fashion Forward Styling and Outstanding customer service. I have continued my education and received several certifications in Color, Extensions and Specialty Services over the years.
I have experience of working with Internationally known stylists in Editorial work and photo shoots as well as runway work. I was also honored to receive recognition by the Pro Beauty Association for my Cutting and Color skills.
I use only professional products in my salon such as Moroccan Oil, Kevin Murphy, Surface, Olaplex and Brazilian BLowout. My favorite color line is the Ammonia Free Honey Based color by Kevin Murphy.
Previously working in salons in Seattle and Tacoma, I began taking Gig Harbor Clients in 2013 - I just couldn't find a salon that offered the high standards of customer service and experience that I wanted to offer my clients and so Rebel'tude Salon was launched in 2015! The salon has done very well and has earned the trust and loyalty of thousands of clients. My private studio, The Rebel'tude Studio, an extension of Rebel'tude, opened in January of 2022, and is where I perform all my hair and nail services.
I had an amazing team, including my own daughter, that have worked with me at Rebel'tude over the years. Rebel'tude, the main salon, will be closing in January of 2023 and the space will be a new creation of my daughters, as she takes over to fulfill her vision of a blonding specialty salon.
My specialties lie in Extensions, Color, Curly Hair and Hair Problem Solving.
I want to be more than just the person who does your hair. I am in this business to build lasting relationships built on trust and mutual respect. I want to get to know you so that I can give your hair the best attention and you a great experience. I want you to get to know me, so that you can trust me to do and recommend what's best for your hair health. I am not afraid to tell you how it is, tell you "NO" you may not have that hair and give you my honest opinion on hair styles and colors that may work or not work for you. I will NOT decide for you though. I expect you to have some type of idea of what you would like and we can collaborate from there.
In addition to doing fabulous hair, I feed my creative need through custom nail designs, whimsical art creations and story telling through humorous blogging.
If you are looking for a new LONG TERM stylist, I should let you know that as of May 2023 I will be stepping away from hair for 6-12 mos so that I can travel the country and recharge.
I look so forward to meeting you and making a new friend!

"I had the BEST experience with Mickey today, receiving an amazing color correction! I wish I had a "before" pic to show how dramatic and beautiful my hair looks now! I'm hoping Mickey posts the "after" pix she took. I'm SO thrilled!"

"...Micky. She accommodated my crazy schedule and stayed late to do my hair. She was funny and SO sweet! I ended up with the BEST CUT I have ever had in my entire life. Im not even joking. She knew how to cut my hair to enhance my curls but also make it look good blown out. She cut some and checked with me...recut....reassessed. By the time I left, I was ecstatic and felt like I had a friend. "

... Mickey took so much time with me to get my purple color just the way I wanted.
The salon is gorgeous and they pamper you the second you walk in the door with beverages and a snack. The rose water foot soak and hand massage are such a nice perk.
Mickey wanted to make a salon that stood out from others in the Harbor, she definitely did!!! Love it here! I will be back!

Charity's hot mess hair w/ regrettable mullet has been vanquished and a much more illustrious, professional cut has taken its place. Thank you so much Mickey for making her my extra pretty lady! And if anyone elses hair needs love in Gig Harbor you need to come to Rebel'tude and check this place out!!! The decor is amazing, everyone was so nice and they do great work. I will be getting my hair did their soon too!

Mickey is an artist with hair. I think she has permanently reversed the graying process! Cut, color, style is awesome!
Sandy B. - Facebook Review
Hair by Mickey is without a doubt one of the best finds in Gig Harbor! She is so creative and involved with every aspect of your hair. The consultation is very thorough . I have never been asked so many questions about my hair ever! She truly cares and strives to give you the best service possible. Mickey also gives you great tips on how to maintain your hair in between appts., to keep color from changing too much before your return I also got a hand massage which was great. I highly recommend Mickey and truly mean it when I say "welcome to the harbor"!! We are fortunate have someone as talented and creative as you ! Hair coloring is her passion and the results show it! You will not be disappointed, and truly a delightful woman to work with!!
