We are one of a small handful of salons across the UK to have achieved Green Salon Accreditation. This is a kitemark demonstrating that here at Renaissance, we go above and beyond when it comes to looking after people and our planet.
Our Green Pledge
We take environmental and social impacts into account when choosing suppliers for everything, including:
Our Products: Davines
Our Colour: SensiDo/Davines
Our Energy Providers: Scottish Power (Fixed Eco Tariff)
Our Towels: Simply Dry (Bamboo Biodegradable)
Our Cleaning and Laundry Products: Suma Eco Leaf
We have water-saving Eco Heads on all our washbasins and even our loo roll is sustainable!
We take recycling seriously. Since the beginning of the pandemic, global disposable consumption has been out of control. Here at Renaissance, we recycle all the following:
We work with the Green Salon collective, who are industry leaders. Since June 2020, we are proud to have played our part in the following being diverted from landfill:
386 kilos of hair
2.3 tonnes of metal
173 kilos of PPE and plastics
228 litres of chemicals
We offer gender-neutral pricing, have a no-judgment policy and welcome staff and customers from all backgrounds and abilities. We have disabled access and can offer plant-based alternatives so that all needs are catered for. We work hard to ensure everyone we welcome through our doors feels safe, respected and listened to.
Renaissance always welcomes suggestions on how we can do better. Please refer to our news page for all Covid-19 safety information.
We pride ourselves on the fact our staff are paid and treated fairly, continually nourished in their development, and fully supported within the Renaissance family.
We are also active in the community, raising awareness and money for charity. We use our salon as a donation point for the Food Aid network.
Our manager, Lynsey, raised £3,345.00 for Mind running the London Marathon
We have raised £876.00 for breast cancer charities through in-salon events
This year, we are raising awareness once more for another charity, Candlelighters.
Keep your eyes peeled for upcoming events.
We love the environment just as much as we love hair, and we pride ourselves on eco-friendly ethics at our hair salon in Leeds. We are always looking for new and exciting ways to do more, and to help and protect our planet. We recently began using 100% biodegradable towels. These are not only better for the environment, but they are also more hygienic for clients.
As well as cutting down energy consumption by not having to be washed and dried, they also allow our staff to dedicate more time to every single one of our customers. We recycle our empty product packaging, either by creating imaginative window displays or simply refilling them. We select each product supplier based on their environmental stance and ethos.
We light our hair salon in Leeds with energy saving bulbs and we are mindful of water consumption. We have also recently installed eco-friendly water taps onto our basins which filter and, once again, cut down on our water usage.
Salon Shower Pro
Water is in short demand. It’s a global problem!
You may have read about water shortages in the South this year. Thankfully, the British weather is doing its best to rectify that. The hairdressing industry is finally awake to the fact that we can now make use of water far more effectively, ergonomically and ecologically too.
Salon Shower Pro is a new hair salon shower head that reduces the amount of water we use but, at the same time, increases the pressure we rinse at. The specially designed head creates a build-up of water, which is forced out of a pressure plate to create a spa shower effect.
But that’s not all.
As the water enters the head, it goes through a four-filter process to eliminate nasties like limescale, copper and rust deposits. It even eliminates up to 70% of residual chlorine, a killer for cosmetic hair colour. This leaves hair texture looking far more natural and it is better for us to work with.
We hope you like it too!
