Portland's green. Salon is one the nation's leading eco-friendly salons and it is easy to see why. On top of their serious dedication to sustainability, green. provides each client with a unique experience tailored to his or her needs.
Note: The team at green. goes the extra mile for everyone they work with, including My Best Friend's Hair. They worked together as a salon to put together this Salon Spotlight and we are presenting it exactly as they have written it. We are very proud to feature such an eco-concious salon and want to thank them for the work they put into this post.
"People often ask what makes green. special. Perhaps it's the approach we take to sustainability, in making sure that all of our products are purchased based solely on their positive impact on the environment. We feature lines by Kevin.Murphy and Davines, two companies that consistently carry respect in the industry for their longstanding commitment to environmental awareness and unique approach to the science of hair.
"All of Davines' products are safe on the environment and foster renewable energy sources. Kevin.Murphy products are plant-based, containing nourishing oils and vitamins essential to keep your hair and skin happy, healthy, and free of the damaging sulphate and parabens often found in many other products on the market today.
"At green., we strive to maintain an atmosphere that leaves our clients feeling better than when they arrived, each and every time. Our clients are not just dollars out the door or faces unfamiliar, but rather colleagues, family, and friends, who time again bring their own circle in to support ours. We pride ourselves on the diverse community we've established after just over three years in operation.
"The neighborhood we have both learned from and contributed to is an integral part of the success we have today, and we greatly appreciate what our growing base of loyal clients have done for our forward motion. We take measures to show our gratitude in multiple ways, from offering emerging artists a space to showcase their works for a two-month run, to serving coffee that was roasted just blocks away by a young couple starting a sustainable coffee company together.
"Each member of our salon is an independent contractor operating under a full-time lease. We are not a strain of classes or cliques, nor do we have anyone that is looked upon with favor or avoided in fear. We work together. We play together. From the seasoned stylist with a vision that started this house to the in-house esthetician that offers waxing, tinting, and facials, to all the shear visionaries in between, we are quite fortunate to have found this group of people to represent the community. Perhaps that's what makes us special. We also have ice-cold local beer on tap and two shades of wine."
Thank you, green.! We agree that local brews and wine add an *extra* special touch! Learn more about green. by visiting their My Best Friend's Hair salon profile.

For the love of hair,
