LOOKING AFTER THE PLANET WHILST WE LOOK AFTER YOU
Exile is proud to be a sustainable salon. We recycle 95% of everything we use, through our cooperative with Sustainable Salons.
All the hair collected from our salon is turned into a ‘hair boom’ which is used to collect spilt oil in our oceans. Once oil is soaked up, 80% of the oil can be extracted and reused. We recycle everythign from our used alumium foils, to our waste products and retired furniture – no waste or chemicals goes into our waste water system.
Our aluminium is 100% recyclable and can be recycled endlessly by being put in a specialised aluminium smelter where it is melted down and reformed ready to one day be reused. Sustainable Salons also sell the aluminium and money raised is used to support not for profit organisations and communities that need help. Exile buys back recycled aluminium, biodegradabel plastic bags, and gloved that can be used multiple times. These products are made so they can break down a lot faster in our environment.
We also donate any pony tail 20cm or longer to charity so they can be made into wigs. So be brave…..take the chop
In 2001 Jo Plant established Exile Hair Design with the support of her grandparents. Jo’s vision was to make a visit to the hairdressers more than just a haircut; she wanted to deliver an experience that was tailored to meet the unique and diverse needs of her many clients. Exile brings vision together with hair and makeup services provided by some of Auckland’s most talented stylists. Exile stylists are professionaly trained to allow you, our valued client, to select the look that’s right for you.
I had about a ten minute consultation with Exile’s colourist about which colour would suit me best. I decided to follow their advice, and its turned out so much better than what I expected.
