Toronto Hair Salon Goes Uber Green

worldSALON in Toronto was founded by Brian Phillips, a hairdresser on a mission to make the world a little better, one strand of hair at a time. After developing contact dermatitis in 1993, Phillips decided to stop doing perms. This prompted him to look at other aspects of his business and what they were doing to the environment.

Now, solar panels heat the salon’s water and worldSalon offers worldPRODUCTS for sale that are eco-friendly and effective. Halogen bulbs have been replaced by CFL bulbs, and computers are plugged into special power bars that cut the power when switched off at night. In 2007, Phillips received a certificate from the Ontario Power Generation confirming that he’d cut the energy use of the salon by half in a seven year time frame.

    It’s such a great experience to meet Gloria! JJ club has its gem on her. With her skills, experience and warmth, I felt like a friend and not just a customer. She was so attentive in my instructions. Also, she suggested hairstyles that suit me and my aura. I am grateful to my friend from Ottawa who recommended her and I was no longer surprised when Gloria did magic on my hair and my self-confidence. With all my encounters with hairstylists, I can say that Gloria is exceptionally skillful. I stepped in their place with a sinking confidence and I went out, transformed and secured with own beauty. As an Asian, she is very interesting and so if you talk to her, you can feel the sincerity and humility. These are additional factors why I will always look for her among every hairstylist that I have met. Writing this makes me miss her and makes me want to think of a new posh hair style 🙂
