Salon Success suggests great ways to ‘green up’ your salon

October 25, 2021

Going green isn’t just good for the environment – it’s good for business and can save you money.

A typical salon creates a tremendous amount of waste every day. But with a few adjustments and some smart choices, salons can curb water waste, energy use and chemical by-products to make a big impact on the earth, and a lasting impression on clients.

A great resource that Salon Success partners with is Green Salon Collective, a network that helps salons nationwide find the path to sustainability. Founded by environmental experts, hairdressers and eco campaigners they are the original authority on salon sustainability throughout the UK and Ireland, focusing on finding circular solutions for salon waste.


● Collect salon waste and re-purpose it instead of putting it in a landfill.
● Gather hair clippings to help soak up oil spills.
● Recycle used foils into energy and new metals.
● Neutralise residual dye waste with salts and water, while solid components are diverted to a hazardous waste area.


● Implement energy and water-saving systems, which save resources and money.
