WE CARRY 100% VEGAN, 100% CRUELTY FREE, SUSTAINABLE HAIR CARE PRODUCTS
We’ve done our homework to ensure that the brands we work with are healthy for the planet and also for our clients and stylists. Part of this effort was finding brands that fit these criteria while still delivering great results. With this in mind, our hair care products come from some of the top eco-friendly brands. Let’s take a closer look!
From humble beginnings to big ideas, evo's mission has remained the same: saving ordinary humans from themselves.
They do this by challenging the status quo … to get people thinking for themselves, so that they can inspire positive change while providing honest products that respect people and the planet.
In an industry awash with over-inflated truths, big brand baloney and unrealistic standards of beauty, evo came to be — the first professional haircare brand to speak the truth with individuality and integrity.
Coming from a long line of hairdressing heritage, evo has always been a family affair. The family mission to grow and protect the hairdressing industry has been at their core since 2005. Today, they’re continuing this quest by providing salons across the globe with honest products that put performance, people and the planet first.
We carry the whole evo line because it's all incredible.
Maria Nila is a 100% vegan and cruelty-free product line based out of Stockholm, Sweden. Their products are sulphate and paraben-free (both known skin irritants for certain individuals) and rely on a variety of natural ingredients including argan oil, vitamin b5, blackberry extract, algae extract.
Maria Nila climate compensates all of their packaging, and partners with Zeromission, an organization focused on relieving poverty in developing countries, promoting sustainable land-use projects, environmental protection, conservation, restoration and protection, and management of terrestrial ecosystems. Maria Nila is also involved in donating to projects such as “Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary” (translated), and in tree planting projects such as Plan Vivo.
We carry an array of Maria Nila shampoos, conditioners, and styling & care products for various hair types. We also carry their do-it-at-home temporary colour masques.

Since its creation in 1954, Yon-Ka has chosen to always use natural actives, plant extracts, essential oils and ingredients issued from biotechnology. Catherine and Francoise Mühlethaler, sister-owners of the heritage brand Yon-Ka Paris, were fiercely passionate for the plant kingdom and visionary entrepreneurs. The company has pioneered the production of cutting-edge aromatherapy and phytotherapy formulas that merge botany, scientific innovation, wellness, and beauty.
