When and how did your business get started?
We opened Sept. 22, 2012. I started this organic salon because I wanted to give people a choice. I wanted people to get educated on organic hair color, that it is 100 percent gray coverage and long lasting color.
I also started this business because I have an autistic son and we are always trying to go organic and gluten free. I am always looking for alternates to a clean, healthy life for everyone.
What is your business best known for?
Best known for organic color systems, hair care products and color line. Also we carry Aveda. Best known for in services would be our color! Our color lines cover 100 percent grey and are long-lasting and beautiful colors! We have a wide range of clients, we have pregnant women, cancer clients, gluten free clients, vegan clients, allergy clients or clients that understand and don't want any chemicals on their head and pouring through their bodies.
Why did you choose the town you did to open your business?
Orland Park, Mokena, Tinley Park, Palos Park, etc. do not have a true organic hair salons. We are trying to change the traditional thinking of hair color and how damaging traditional hair color is to your health. Someone has to care, someone has to spread the word!
