Our Earth-Friendly Products & Processes
All of our products are natural, organic and sustainable, and most are vegan. We prioritise our clients’ health and wellbeing without compromising on quality. We use paper in the salon as an alternative to tin foil, which we wash and reuse to reduce our impact on landfill. We collect hair, which is upcycled and used as a sustainable material for an upcoming exciting project. We’re proud to offer a Refill Station for some retail products like shampoo and conditioner. Bring in your clean empty bottle for refilling to receive a green discount on your product!
How we Reduce Waste
We recycle all glass, and as many plastics as we can, and we are very conscious of keeping our plastic consumption to a minimum. We upcycle our Oway glass product packaging – using them for drink bottles, pen holders and even for our plants! We recycle our cardboard through Reclaim Christchurch. They are 100% New Zealand and 0% Landfill.
Our Sustainable Water Practices
At the basin we use eco heads to minimise water usage. This includes a special filtration system that ionizes the water and removes sediment – leaving the hair cleaner and healthier. To further minimise water waste, we use leftover drinking water to water our plants.

When there is a significant amount of hair collected from a single client’s cut or restyle, we donate that hair to Sustainable Salons Australia. Sustainable Salons collects ponytails and distributes them to charitable organisations and local wig-makers where they can become wigs for those suffering from medically induced hair-loss conditions such as alopecia and cancer.
