Be a Green.Salon

In 2021, we believe that being a green salon is no longer really a choice, it’s a must! Even before the Covid Pandemic, consumers were turning brands which address environmental issues. The past 12 months has served to accelerate this trend.
Addressing your business in 2021, there is no avoiding it; consumers are increasingly choosing brands with a conscience and a purpose, those with concern for the environment high on the agenda. These consumers are your customers. From the products you use, to the services you offer, it’s all under scrutiny. Be a green salon, be in tune with your clients, be at peace with your conscience – it’s really not so hard.
How much waste can you prevent in the salon?

Hairdresser Kevin Murphy has been an hairdressing eco-warrior from the outset; his brand reflects his personal values. At the heart of the brand is mindfulness of both human and environmental issues. His philosophy is to help ourselves to haircare, to colouring services and the pursuit of beauty but always mindful of the impact we have on our planet, and to want to reduce this.


GREEN.SALON is a virtual salon tool that shows you – whether as a salon and acting as individuals – steps to undertake which reduce your carbon footprint and lessen your overall impact on the environment while saving money. It’s super easy to hop online and take the Kevin.Murphy brand challenge to see how green is your salon AND, importantly, what you can do to improve! Click HERE

Color.Me: Choose products with naturally-derived ingredients

The choices you make are important. Again we encourage you to consider those choices, and the changes you can adopt in all areas of work and home to improve. We love how Australian-born Kevin never forgets the privilege of coming from such a beautiful country, with amazing bio-diversity, and the responsibility that brings, too. He encourages everyone he comes into contact with to consider their environmental impact. See how you can help from small to big! Refuse to take single use plastics, says Kevin. From reconsidering the plastic cutlery often used in salon events, to refusing to buy takeaways delivered in plastic containers, dropping plastic straws and wax-paper cups in the salon, there is so much you can do. See plenty of ideas on the Kevin.Murphy site HERE
