Manager Amelia Griffiths and senior stylists
Jen Matiu and Jackie Moore are committed to
sustainability both personally and in the salon.
“We are trying to be as sustainable as possible in
everything we do,” says Amelia. “A key difference is
that we no longer use tin foil for colouring hair. It was
a breakthrough for us when the new papernotfoil
product came on the market because of our concern
about the impact waste foil was having.”
Papernotfoil is marketed as a revolutionary
alternative to using aluminium foil for hair foils,
at the same time eliminating one of the biggest
waster producers in the beauty industry.
“An average salon apparently uses 1.5km of tin
foil a month which is enough to wrap around the
earth once a year,” says Amelia.” We love using
papernotfoil because it's reusable, recyclable and
biodegradable and we have massively cut down
on waste since we began using it. Clients like the
product better as well because its more comfortable
and provides a more relaxing experience.”
Amelia says their sustainable
approach means they stock
products which reinforce the
“We use EVO hair products because they respect
the environment and endeavour to use vegan and
gluten free ingredients. This makes them chemical
free and there is no animal testing while all the
packaging is 100% recyclable.”
The salon plans to become part of Sustainable
Salons NZ which provides collection for salon
waste, including hair.
“The Australian based company has recently set
up in New Zealand and as soon as the collection
service is available in our area we will be joining
up,” she says. “It is a fantastic venture and again
underlines our efforts to be as environmentally
conscious as possible.”

day in Arrowtown, have their hair done and
