Beautiful hair doesn’t have to compromise your health or the environment. At Elizabeth JJ’s on the Avenue we pride ourselves on creating fantastic hair while treading lightly on the earth. We use ethically sourced, sustainable, health conscious and environmentally friendly products to deliver amazing colours and on-point styling. These products are backed by strong ethics, quality formulations and certified organic ingredients, promoting healthy hair and a healthy environment.
We use rainwater to wash our towels (whenever we can) and dry them on the line rather than in the clothes dryer (weather permitting).
We compost all of our food waste, coffee grounds, tea leaves and even dead flowers in our worm farm. The worms then make fertiliser and compost for the garden and pot plants. Thank you worms!
We have sourced and chosen to work with environmentally conscious companies, including Organic Colour Systems and De Lorenzo.
Organic Colour Systems maximise their use of naturally derived and certified organic ingredients. They ensure that their packaging is recyclable and is produced from recycled materials wherever possible. Their environmental footprint in minimised by using efficient manufacturing methods, reducing waste and energy consumption and recycling and re-purposing as much as possible. The company continue this ethos throughout their supply chain, sourcing their ingredients from reputable suppliers who prioritise environmental sustainability and their staff’s welfare.
De Lorenzo is a premium Australian made and Australian owned brand with a very strong focus on sustainability and cruelty-free development of their products. De Lorenzo products are all vegan certified and infused with aromatic botanical oils and native plants. Their packaging incorporates the highest proportions of recycled materials. We are proud to partner with De Lorenzo and use their product range in the salon.
Clever Curl is a range of highly specialised hair products designed specifically to enhance and embrace the beauty of naturally curly hair. This Australian-made range was inspired by the Curly Girl Method introduced by Lorraine Massey and is 100% Curly Girl Approved. The 8 products in the Clever Curl range were created by specialists from the organic haircare brand EverEscents, and available in both Original and Fragrance Free formulations. Products across the range deliver moisture and the ability to hold a healthy hydrated curl, with ingredients such as Organic Aloe Vera Juice and Rice Water Protein providing a perfect balance of strength and nourishment.
Hanz de Fuko is committed to providing the most natural, plant-based products available. They are dedicated to eliminating animal testing, and utilise “non-GMO” and Certified Organic Ingredients whenever possible in their product formulations.
We work in partnership with Sustainable Salons to recycle or re-purpose 95% of our “salon waste” including used foil, hair clippings, excess colour products, paper, plastics and glass. The salon waste is placed in special bins and collected regularly for re-purposing. Sustainable Salons work in partnership with charities and environmental organisations and the proceeds from re-purposing the salon waste are donated to OzHarvest to provide meals for those in need.
We’re very proud that the salon has received Green Select accreditation from the Australian Hairdressing Council.
The Green Select accreditation recognises our efforts to minimise the salon’s footprint on the planet, while still delivering the fantastic hair and service that our clients expect and deserve.
