Salon Organic caters to the conscious client who knows beautiful, healthy hair goes hand in hand with a natural, balanced lifestyle. We are committed to using only premium, cruelty free, ammonia-free and vegan products. We also offer gluten free products. Tucked away in the heart of Montclair, Salon Organic is an oasis of hair care where our services will renew, restore and revive even the most stressed strands. Clients can relax within the confines of this Montclair retreat, knowing that their hair is being cared for in a nurturing and toxin free environment.
Salon Organic’s unique approach to beauty and hair color, in particular, is a rare find, even in an ecoconscious town like Montclair. Using organic hair color, in addition to an individualized approach to hair cutting, guests leave feeling more like themselves, each radiating their own natural beauty. The products used and sold at Salon Organic are primarily plant based, organic and biodynamic. The benefits of this healthy line of products are extensive: healthier hair, longer lasting color, no harmful fumes or harsh chemicals, excellent gray coverage and an incredibly pleasant salon experience.
Anne Gray, the salon’s proprietor, has over 30 years of experience in the salon industry and brings a passion for organic living and a belief in organic products. Prior to opening Salon Organic in Montclair in 2008, she owned an award-winning Aveda salon on the historic island of Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts for eleven years. Her specialties include color correction and blonding, as well as advanced hair cutting techniques.
“I think, in general, the salon and spa industry are going green. People are more sensitive to the chemicals in the environment. It was one of the reasons that drove me to pursue an organic lifestyle in the first place,” stated Anne. Anne is an advocate of an eco-friendly lifestyle and believes in the necessity of a balanced lifestyle. “I want to present the best me, my best self, for my clients,” said Anne. “I care about my body and the climate. I realize our paths are continually unfolding. I value life.”
Oway organic hair color is the world’s first professional hair color formulated with the highest concentration of organic, biodynamic and fair-trade ingredients.
Oway’s green chemists have created a beautiful balance between performance and nature with nourishing, gentle, ammonia-free formulations that even the most sensitive clients will love.
Why ammonia- free hair color? Salon Organic chooses the alternative to ammonia because it releases its energy more evenly, making the color process much gentler on the hair, scalp and environment of the salon.
Oway’s organic hair care and styling products are artfully formulated with biodynamic botanicals, organic ingredients, and pure essential oils with no toxic additives. Use Oway hair care products and free yourself from parabens, PEG/PPG/BG, mineral oils, artificial colorants, EDTA and synthetic fragrance.
