Verde: A Salon by Kevin Gatto   4 Powell Lane   Collingswood, NJ 08108   856.858.0911  

 

Verde is a commitment to beauty on the inside and out—recognizing the need to both live beautifully and care for the world around us. The past few years have been spent putting the finishing touches on a holistic approach to salon services that elevates style while decreasing its impact on the environment. You’ll find our passion for substance and style at work everyday both in and out of the salon.

As more and more companies talk about being green, you’ll find that it can mean different things to different people. At Verde Salon, we like to say it means “a world of difference” as our signature approach simultaneously protects our world and work environments. The space was constructed with painstaking attention to environmentally friendly details. Low or no-VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) paints and finishes were used to drastically improve air quality and safety, especially for people with chemical sensitivities. Throughout the salon you’ll find recycled wallpapers, bamboo flooring, energy efficient lighting, air purifiers, EnergyStar appliances and continual use of recycled papers for print and advertising.

You’ll also notice our commitment to environmental responsibility—both on and off the shelves. To start, we use no-formaldehyde nail polishes and keratin treatments because of its link to asthma attacks and it’s classification as a human carcinogen. We’ve also carefully selected hair and skin products that reflect our belief in organic or vegan ingredients with a purpose.

Beyond our commitment to the environment, our guests will receive the “Green Carpet Experience.”   As an educational-driven salon, we reward our employees for continuing their education and offer ”scissors-on” training on the latest products and techniques throughout the year. As you’ll discover, our products and providers are equally committed to evolution as well.

At the end of the day, we are in the beauty business and our primary focus will always be making you the most beautiful person you can be. We look forward to forever changing the way the world sees you, and you see the world
