Eco Chique Salon
Mary and Sophia Ryan, a mother and daughter team, are proud to own the first eco-friendly, green hair salon in Montclair, Oakland. The concept of a green hair salon was derived out of the need to provide a non-toxic environment for the client and the stylist. They offer their clients the safest, non-toxic products on the market today in a healthy, odor free, well-ventilated, and naturally lit environment.

CHARITIES

We are partnered with charities such as: Matter of Trust, the Susan J. Komen Fund, and Locks of Love. We recycle all of our client’s hair clippings, and send them to Matter of Trust to be recycled into oil absorbing mats that keep our water clean and mop up the oil spills in our bay. We also donate your ponytails to Locks of Love and the Susan J. Komen Fund, organizations that produce hair pieces for children and adults with cancers resulting in hair loss.

 

Eco Chique Hair Salon will be hosting events for charities and donating the proceeds to good causes locally. If anyone has an idea for a charity fundraiser, please contact Mary at Eco Chique.
