Sustainable

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.

Every day in the salon

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!

Our ethically-sourced Fairtrade coffee is supplied in biodegradable packaging. Yum!

Clever Curl

Clever Curl was created by a group of Australian curl specialists inspired by the Curly Girl Method introduced by Lorraine Massey. Brought to you by the team from leading organic haircare brand EverEscents, the Clever Curl range is a highly specialised line of hair products carefully formulated to enhance and embrace naturally curly hair to hold the personality and individuality of curls.

After two years of formula creating, talking with curl specialists and prototype testing in curl specialist salons, this exciting yet simple range of 8 curly girl products was born!

All products are formulated with minimal ingredients and are sulphate and silicone-free to ensure that nothing gets in the way of beautiful, natural curls.

Delivering moisture and the ability to hold a healthy hydrated curl are paramount functions across the range with the added benefits of Certified Organic Aloe Vera Juice and Rice Water Protein providing the perfect balance of nourishment and strength.
