Estrella Evans opened Velvet Monkey Salon in 2001.  She started with only one stylist in a 1927 converted house off of N.W. 23rd St. Estrella’s vision had two goals:


First, to consistently provide the finest and most current beauty services in the immediate and surrounding area. Every guest received individual attention, and her reputation soared for always having the edge on hair color and design.


Second, to provide a place of inspiration where like-minded stylists would have the opportunity to express themselves and show their talent through creating beauty.  


The Velvet Monkey Salon has grown throughout the years, and so has the vision that we continue to build through our work daily.  We now have over 23 team members and two locations located in OKC. 


Estrella has achieved most of her goals. She is clearly recognized as a leader in the beauty industry, both locally and nationally. She has created a work environment for staff that offers stability, excitement, superior continuing education, professional growth opportunities, financial achievement, and rewards for contributions to the team. However, she continually seeks new goals aimed to please her guests' experiences by keeping staff at the “top of their game,” and bringing in industry known artists and experts to train and demonstrate the latest techniques and products.  




Velvet Monkey Salon is committed to providing the best services to our clients. We strive to provide ongoing education to clients about services, products, and changes in the beauty industry- i.e. styles, trends, colors, and cuts. Our responsibility to our clients is to maintain a good reputation for quality services in our salon. We are committed to performing exceptional services, while also providing our clients with great support.

The team at Velvet Monkey Salon pride themselves on their ability to excel in customer service due to their commitment to education. Their ability to execute on the latest trends allows them to offer each guest an in-depth consultation, and offer suggestions that will ultimately result in a style that best accommodates the look that the guest had originally envisioned.


Velvet Monkey Salon celebrates 16 years of success 


Velvet Monkey Salon will be celebrating their 16th birthday on May 12th 2017. We would like to invite the community to come join us for this event.  Velvet Monkey will host a fashion show coordinated by our team members.  Come enjoy an evening of music, art, wine, cheese- the community will experience a night to remember.  


The Velvet Monkey Salons feature an inviting space that includes industrial and organic design elements that complement the custom design amenities located throughout the salon. "I think one must create their environment to stimulate ..,,,,,,,,


“At Velvet Monkey we don’t view our clients as a job,” said Estrella. “No two clients are alike when it comes to the beauty industry. Working with UNITE haircare also allows us to customize each individual’s characteristics to create the ultimate experience.”



There are millions of talented and creative stylists worldwide who indulge the passion for their craft every day.  Velvet Monkey Salon is so lucky to have 23 of these stylists together to showcase their talent, develop their skills, and be inspired by one another.

“I created Velvet Monkey Salon so our stylists can be a part of a like-minded community, where they can get to know other creative individuals, display their work, receive feedback on their creations, and view the works of other creatives.” 

“The unique point about our salon is that no person is restricted to one area of creative interest. Creative people often have multiple interests and creative outlets, so Velvet Monkey is my attempt at giving creative individuals, from all lifestyles, a platform to showcase their creativity and be inspired.”


Velvet Monkey Salon is a locally owned business.
