What Does Sustainable Hairdressing Really Mean?

In recent years, the beauty industry has been abuzz with the concept of sustainability, driven by a growing concern for the environmental impact of its practices. Sustainability has become more than just a buzzword; it’s a commitment to making real changes in how beauty services are provided. Bare Beauty House, situated in the picturesque Manly on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, is leading the way as a sustainable hair salon, demonstrating that sustainability can be integrated into the world of hairdressing. But what exactly does sustainable hairdressing entail, and how can it be effectively put into practice?

At its core, sustainability refers to the ability to maintain something at a certain rate or level, with a specific focus on ensuring a continuous consciousness for the environment. When it comes to hairdressing, this means adopting practices and using products that minimize environmental impact and contribute to the overall well-being of the planet. Bare Beauty House has embraced this by consciously selecting sustainable products and implementing recycling initiatives.

One significant step towards sustainable hairdressing is the choice of eco-friendly products like the Oway range. Oway’s commitment to sustainability is evident in its 99% plastic-free packaging and the use of biodynamic organic ingredients. By incorporating products like Oway into our salon services, Bare Beauty House not only offers quality hair care but also showcases sustainability in action. These products are sourced from materials and ingredients that can be maintained and recycled, reinforcing the concept of sustainability.

In addition to product choices, Bare Beauty House takes a step further by using water-soluble wax in our hair removal services. This wax is not only effective for hair removal but is also biodegradable, dissolving in water without a trace. This practice ensures that no harmful residues are left to impact the environment, producing zero waste in the process.

Nevertheless, despite best efforts, some waste generation is unavoidable in the salon. The key to sustainable hairdressing is how this waste is handled. At Bare Beauty House, a meticulous waste management system is in place. All waste, whether it’s product packaging or hair clippings, is sorted and recycled according to environmentally friendly guidelines. Remarkably, the hair waste collected is transformed into what’s called a hair boom. These are then used in recycling initiatives to soak up oil spills in the ocean. This commitment to cleaning up our oceans is essential for maintaining a pristine environment, especially considering the salon’s proximity to Sydney’s most beautiful beach, Manly.

Beyond the salon itself, Bare Beauty House ensures that sustainable and environmentally friendly practices are integrated into their daily operations. For instance, all food waste generated within the salon is composted in dedicated compost bins. This compost serves as a natural fertilizer, enriching the soil to keep the plants throughout the salon vibrant and healthy. This commitment to composting is a clear example of putting sustainability into practice and demonstrates that the salon’s environmental consciousness extends beyond its primary services.

Sustainable hair and beauty salons are more than just a trendy catchphrase; it’s about taking meaningful actions to reduce our environmental impact. Bare Beauty House exemplifies this commitment by carefully selecting sustainable products, implementing recycling initiatives, and maintaining eco-friendly practices both within and outside the salon. In doing this Bare Beauty House demonstrates what a sustainable salon truly means – a dedication to the environment, reduced environmental footprint, and the preservation of our beautiful planet. So, as you walk out of Bare Beauty House with your hair and skin looking stunning, you can also feel good knowing that you’ve supported a salon that prioritises sustainability and environmental responsibility, leaving both you and the planet looking and feeling their best!
