All-vegan beauty salon Eco Chic Salon will open in San Diego, CA on February 1. The full-service salon specializes in ammonia-, PPD-, and Resorcinol-free hair color and uses 100-percent vegan products by companies such as Original Mineral and Organic Way. Eco Chic will also offer waterless manicure and pedicure services and is currently perfecting a healing crystal manicure and pedicure which will include a crystal-infused scrub and mask. Eco Chic co-founders Kim Tran and Leeanne Heathcote hope the space will become a destination for sustainable and cleaner beauty. It is already Green Circle-certified for its efforts to collect, recycle, and repurpose salon waste, and divert them from landfills and waterways. “We source the best and most innovative products and treatments that share our environmental standards and deliver them to our valued clients,” Tran told VegNews. “From the second you walk in the door of Eco Chic, greeted by a landscape of lush plants that aid air filtration in the studio, through to check out, we want your experience to be healthy and rewarding.”
