RESPONSIBILITY

We all want to feel beautiful and sexy. We need to care for our hair and our skin properly. So now we have to look at what we are using and doing that not only makes us look good, but makes us feel good as well.

We must move forward in life becoming more responsible in the things we use on our hair and body. To that end, not only will we look and feel better, but we are giving back at the same time.

When we use conventional store bought or professional hair and body care, do we actually realize what we are putting on to our skin? Responsibility starts within the temple. The temple being our body. What you put in is what you get out. Ahh think about that one! When we use products laden with petro chemicals, silicones, animal fats, mineral oils, formaldehydes and so on. Let's keep in mind. Three very common ingredients in typical hair and body products are:

1) Propylene Glycol: This is the main ingredient in Anti-Freeze. I will say no more!

2)Mineral oil: This is the bottom of the barrel of what is left after the petroleum production of gasoline. It's so bad they cannot give it away! So they sell it very inexpensively to the cosmetic industry!

3) Formaldehyde: Uhmmm they embalm dead people with this, need I say any more?

Look around you today, people's hair has never looked worse! The barrage of chemicals we are putting on our hair and bodies. It really is NOT shining through!

John Bruno, as a hairstylist and a salon owner, it is my ethical responsibility to educate my clients on the dangers of what they are putting on their hair and skin. I urge everyone to start making steps to becoming a more responsible and healthier people!

Most of these companies are still testing on lab animals as well. It is not necessary, not required by law and it is disgusting and inhumane.

Please join me in this beautiful awakening and move forward in making our hair and skin more beautiful which in turn radiates beauty, sunshine and peace. For us, for the animals and for the earth.

Shear Miracles Hair Care Products are organic, vegan, leaping bunny certified cruelty-free and non gmo. There is a SMO hair care product that is just right for you! I also carry SMO body butter for the skin and SMO Organic Pet Care Shampoo and deodorizing spray for our pets! It's just as important that we keep them healthy too!

Bring your old hair care products in the salon, I will give $5.00 off each hair care product we swap out. It is my commitment to you to get your hair and scalp on the road to looking and feeling beautiful again. 

Have a green Wednesday everyone!

Being a "green salon"

Good day everyone!

With so much going on in the world today, so much to do, so much to think about. How can we squeeze being more responsible and ethical in such a busy life? It's easy!

My ideal salon would be 100% green and sustainable. But alas, the salon is in the world we live in so I have to do the most I can do responsibly to leave as little  a carbon footprint as I can.

These are some of the things which make my salon quite green and somewhat sustainable.

First and foremost, I recycle EVERYTHING! It's easy to do and probably the most important when running a business, or household for that matter! Most everything in the salon is made of glass, drinking glasses, coffee mugs, etc, etc. Always use recycled paper products such as napkins and paper towels. Nothing food related is kept in plastic, only glass. The garbage bags are made of 100% compostable non gmo potato! So the things that are not for recycling that go in the garbage will decompose much quicker! The salon keeps water usage to an absolute minimum. And I only deal with privately owned, ethical, responsible and sustainable companies. Now my salon is very small so it is not difficult to be responsible. But it takes just a small amount of effort to do small things that make a huge impact on the environment! I work with two companies exclusively. Shear Miracle Organics Hair Care and Organic Color Systems. Both which are very responsible, very sustainable, vegan and cruelty-free. Both companies use responsible packaging when they ship their products which is very important!  All these ingredients make for very happy people, happy animals and an appreciative earth! So let's join hands and make our efforts, big and small to becoming a more compassionate, responsible society!

As a salon owner and stylist, it is my ethical duty to provide a clean, safe and sustainable salon for my clients, the animals, the earth and myself.

Have a compassionate day everyone!
