As a green salon, we are passionate about taking care of the world around us. We believe that there is no responsible alternative to doing business than making the effort to be environmentally sustainable. Here’s why we’re an eco-friendly salon, and what we do to help the environment.

Our Values – Our Commitment to Being a Green Hair Salon

At Shai Hair and Beauty, we recognise the importance of being environmentally conscious in this modern world. As members of the hair and beauty industry, we have a responsibility to reduce our impact on the environment. We therefore hold sustainable values at the heart of our salon, so we can do our part to help the planet and provide you with an eco-friendly option when looking to get your hair done.

How Do Salons Cause Environmental Damage?

Though you might not think it at first, hair salons can have damaging effects on the environment, most of which can be easily avoided by being more sustainably conscious. 

Hair foils, colour tubes and plastic bottles can all end up in landfills when not recycled. Additionally, synthetic chemicals from hair products such as dyes and treatments are sent down the drain where they can end up in waterways and soils.

How Are We an Environmentally Friendly Salon?

100% Plastic Free

Plastic can have a serious impact on the environment as it takes hundreds of years to biodegrade. That’s why we use Oway, Oribe and Aveda products that come in recycled glass and aluminium packaging! 

Eco-Friendly Hair Products

We use organic hair products where we can to reduce the amount of synthetic chemicals that are going down the drain. As an Aveda salon, we use Aveda products that are vegan, cruelty free and contain clean ingredients, as well as Oway products that use biodynamically grown ingredients.

Minimise Water Consumption

All wash stations in the salon are equipped with ECO HEADS™ Shower Heads. We are proud to be using this innovative brand as the shower heads use 65% less water than regular ones. They also increase water pressure, so it takes less time to rinse product out of the hair.

Aveda Salon

We are an Aveda Lifestyle Salon. If you’ve not heard of Aveda before, they are an incredible brand with sustainability at their core. Their hair products themselves are good for you, animals and the environment, but they are even eco-friendly down to their use of recycled bottles and 100% post-consumer recycled PET packaging.
