Halifax’s newest salon, Eco Chic Hair Studio
, is on the fringe of something great. The ecologically-conscious salon is boasting a line of organic hair care systems to dye for. Using only naturally-derived, non-toxic, ammonia- and paraben-free hair colouring and styling products, this is where to go if you want your hair care to gel with your local, organic, fair trade, grain-fed values. Located in Solo Hair’s old location at 174 Brenton Street (406-8804), Eco Chic Hair Studio opened August 20 and has three stylists and one aesthetician on staff so far. Nancy MacDonald
, owner and stylist tells us that after working out of her home for six years, she was looking to grow: “the other areas of my life were just becoming cleaner, so when I found a product I could stand behind, I knew I had to put it out there,” she says. Offering a full range of aesthetic services, MacDonald is ahead of the curve, as eco-hair care is still a niche in Halifax, but she says she thinks there’s definitely a demand for it. MacDonald is is in the process of giving the salon a facelift, but hopes to be in good condition by November to host the salon’s grand opening.
