noon on Saturday a large crowd gathered at the popular hair salon
formerly known as Hair Plus to celebrate the business’ re-branding
and new name with owner Diana Pickett. Hair Plus is now officially
As noted during the ribbon cut on Saturday, the
salon has undergone several changes since it opened in 1952. The
business is continually changing and evolving to accommodate the new
trends in hair and skin care.
The ribbon cut was held outside in front of the
business’ new signage that features the new Evolve logo. Before the
cut, Pickett and her crew gathered along with Pickett’s husband Phil
to unveil the new signage.
Then everyone gathered around the sign for the official ribbon cut
hosted by the Lincoln Daily News ribbon cut crew of Karen Hargis,
Roy Logan and Nila Smith.
On hand representing the city of Lincoln was Mayor
Pro-Tem Tracy Welch. At the beginning of the ribbon cut, Smith noted
that it was good to see a long-term business in Lincoln that is
successful and continually changing in order to maintain the quality
of services needed by its customers. Welch echoed those sentiments
saying that the city is proud to see businesses that succeed in the
community and that grow and become stronger. He congratulated
Pickett on creating a new face for her business.
Pickett said that as a business owner she has learned
the value of community and of being invested in the community on the
whole. She spoke briefly about the people who have been beside her
in her efforts and remembered her mother Sandy (Hum) Davis who first
opened the business in 1952.

Smith noted that it was a second generation business and also that
Diana had been involved with the business since she was a young
teenager. At the age of 14, Diana began working for and with her mom
at the salon, and realized she shared the same passion for the
profession as her mother.
Pickett noted that
though the business has been in a number of locations, and has
undergone a couple of name changes, the commitment to offering
quality products and services to the community remains the same.
After the ribbon cut guests were invited inside for a
look around. Each person received a gift basket that included
information about the salon as well as information bout upcoming
promotions and some free samples of products offered by Evolve.
