After beginning to adopt more environmentally conscious practices in their personal lives, hairstylists Joy and Jeremy realized how hard the salon atmosphere could be on Mother Nature and set out to open their own eco-friendly salon. Their salon's open floor plan, organized into chic styling stations and suffused in natural light from numerous surrounding windows, highlights bright modern salon furniture, all of which is reused. In addition to the décor, their green reach expands to the salon's all-natural styling products and energy-efficient, retractable blow dryers, which dangle from the ceiling like a paratrooper after a poorly executed landing. Their resident aestheticians, nail techs, and massage therapists dole out the salon's expansive menu of services, pampering clients with custom facials, head-to-toe waxing treatments, and relaxing mani-pedis.
