Sustainability

Our commitment to sustainable and vegan products and practices

The framework that Little Birdie Hair Co (LBHC) was built upon is one that relies on economic sustainability. The salon was constructed with every detail considered for eco-friendly alternatives. From the way the towels are washed, recycled hair, the salon’s fit out, compostable cups, to the way the staff and clients are educated, sustainability is a way of life at LBHC. Not only are there a copious amount of measures taken to ensure the salon creates as little waste as possible, the staff are genuinely passionate about creating this eco-friendly environment and recycle everything from product packaging to the cut hair! LBHC staff members continue to educate all clients on the sustainable methods taken within the salon and are proud to spread the salon ethos.
