We have been working on a Virtual Salon at Eco Hair and Beauty AND IT IS READY!
The online ‘salon’ is for hairdressers and trainees to explore. By clicking on different areas of the salon you will learn about eco-friendly/sustainable techniques and products. You will learn how to save time, water, energy and your money! We estimate that a small 4 seater salon that adopted our suggestions would over a year save over £5000, save 24150 kWh energy and 143 thousand litres of water! The development of our sustainable stylist/salon certification has also helped to professionalise the industry. Over 500 trainee stylists have completed our virtual salon training programme and received sustainable stylist certificates since we launched it in Oct 2016. This certificate also enables salons to gain the associated sustainable salon certification.)
It will take you between 30 and 60 minutes to complete, and if you need to quit you can log back in later to resume from where you were.
This will form part of the new Sustainable Stylist and Sustainable Salon certification we are developing with our industry partners (Habia, VTCT, Hair Council, NHF and the All Party Political Group on the hairdressing sector). The idea is that completion of the of virtual salon training platform (takes 20-60 mins) will qualify you for a sustainable stylist certificate.
Upon completing the training it will tell you how to get the certificate – please follow the simple instructions. Once completed the certificate will be with you within one week.
Salons can obtain a Sustainable Salon certification upon completion of the following:
- 50%+ of staff have sustainable stylist certificate
- Salon Self-certification of sustainable practice CLICK HERE for the Self Certification
