Three Things About VerVe Salons

1. Both VerVe Lifestyle salons have warm, friendly people greet you when you walk in the door. It feels homey. No plastic bottles in sight but rather a large glass water container with something like lemons or limes or cucumbers floating in it.
2. As Mr. Green says “it doesn’t smell in here.” The reason? Aveda products are plant and botanically based. Their mission is to care about the world we live in and they walk the walk – all over the place.
3. Can’t help feeling proud going to a salon that showcases products from a company that is the FIRST beauty company in the WORLD to receive a Cradle to Cradle sustainability endorsement.
