“Gravity is a hair destination,” he said. “We will give you a world class experience right here in Barrie. We are proud to bring the talent and creativity of a top International salon to Barrie and I invite you experience Gravity. It’s our little secret!”
With the majority of our team being national and international Guest Artists/educators for Goldwell and KMS California, it is easy to see that education and training are our passion here at gravity. By educating other stylists, we are able to continuously broaden our wealth of knowledge and share it with both the team and our clients back in the salon.
Beyond the environment, however, the technical skills are top notch and unmatched in the area. While each stylist brings high energy as well as unique specialties and personalities, the Gravity Salon team is truly inspiring.
GRAVITY SALON is proud to be a GREEN CIRCLE CERTIFIED SALON
Hair salons produce a huge amount of waste every year, Certified Green Circle Salons are now recycling and repurposing things like shampoo bottles, colour tubes and foil wraps. Their goal is to make the entire salon industry sustainable by 2020
One of the program’s more unique aspects is how it goes about re-using all of the cut hair from clients. The hair is sent to a Burnaby warehouse and is made into hair booms which can be used to mop up oil spills.
Hair, it turns out, attracts oil and repels water better than almost any other substance. Some of the hair booms made by Green Circle Salons were used to soak up the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
Three thousand hair booms are stuffed and on standby in the Burnaby warehouse in the event of a local spill. The booms are being made by female inmates in Maple Ridge and they’re free to anyone who wants them.
