Eco-Friendly, Sustainable Hairdressing

It’s not just about being green, it’s about sustainability of our environment, community and people.   We are passionate about finding the best ways to ensure we make as little impact on our environment as possible. We don’t think looking great should cost the earth.  We also don’t think that it should be a compromise, so you are guaranteed the very best in hairdressing with the very least impact on our environment, we stick to some clear-cut rules when it comes to running the salon which means we can promise you the following:-

We are working towards achieving carbon neutral status, we are not quite there but all our power comes from Good Energy who supplies all power from renewable sources, we also check out the credentials of our suppliers like Evo who plant rainforest in Australia to offset their carbon footprint. Every light bulb we use is energy-saving.

We do not believe in animal testing so all our products come with the guarantee that they have not been tested on animals and we do not deal with companies that endorse animal testing in any way.

We have fitted our basins with specially adapted shower heads that reduce the water usage by 60% and remove impurities which means the water is more effective at cleansing.

We use Eco Towels. These are made from wool pulp which is a by-product, normally thrown away. They are more absorbent than towels, bio-degradable and single-use, meaning you are guaranteed hygiene and we won’t be using any detergents, water and energy cleaning them.

All of our products are ammonia free. You will notice when you walk through the door how clean and fresh the air smells because we don’t use ammonia.  We don’t think it makes sense to stress the hair with ammonia and most importantly we don’t want our clients or staff breathing it in.

Minimise landfill waste – we use a specialist waste firm to ensure that as much waste as possible is recycled. We are constantly working to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill.

Over 50% of our furniture was made from reclaimed timber.

We would love to be paper free but it is harder than you think, however we examine closely all we do and look for paper free alternatives. Here are a few ways we are committing to paper free:

You will notice our stylists have tablets, this is so we don’t print record cards and ensures your information is always kept safe.

We use an on-line portal for our staff team to manage all our admin and training so we don’t print endless forms and training manuals.

SMS appointment reminders instead of paper cards.

Electronic appointment book and on-line booking.

When we can’t go paper free we use materials that are recycled or certified by the FSC.

When we do need to print receipts we use receipt paper that is free from BPA, BPS, Bisphenol and Phenol.

Hygiene is essential in a salon, but that does not mean we have to use harsh chemicals. We use steam to ensure all surfaces are sanitised. It’s more effective and safer for the environment, you and us.

Any cleaning materials we use are environmentally friendly both in their production and when they enter the water course.

All our shampoos and conditioners are free from the following

Sulphates, Parabens, DEA, TEA, Propylene Glycol.

We have products that are suitable for both vegetarians and vegans and contain the largest amount of certified organic natural ingredients available

Sometimes it is necessary to use a synthetic ingredient but rest assured that this will still be ethically sourced and produced in a sustainable way and of course as soon as a natural becomes available we will use that instead

We are keen to ensure we give back where we can to our community. Each year we will nominate a local and national charity and focus our efforts on raising money for them.

We are committed to the development of the next generation of hairdressers. We constantly support and develop our team through weekly internal education and regular trips to external seminars, and of course they are spoilt having their own international stylist driving them forward.

We are committed to paying our team a living wage, not just the minimum.

We don’t think were perfect and we are constantly looking to ensure we become more sustainable. Delivering a sustainable product is rarely the cheap option but we believe it is a price worth paying. Nothing we do should cost the earth.
