Environmentally conscious individuals that want to remain true to their goal of being kind to Mother Earth will enjoy indulging in the self-care services available at Andrea’s Organic Hair Studio and Day Spa. Naples’ only Green Conscious Certified Salon is dedicated to providing gentle but effective, chemical-free professional services for hair and nails, as well as offering massage and facials.
“All our products are made with certified organic ingredients, so there are no fumes or toxins. As a result, the salon smells like a spa, rather than a hair salon,” says owner and Master Hair Colorist Andrea Sorrenti. “We are committed to a greener planet, which is why I research every product we use and even offer vegan products.”
The spa’s manicures and pedicures rely on natural nail polish and remover. “When you use conventional products, nails don’t yellow, so they look good even without polish,” advises Sorrenti, whose research has proven that pedicure bowls are more sanitary than footbaths. “We use pedicure bowls because footbaths have filters that can trap fungus and bacteria,” she advises. “With a bowl, the contents are thrown out and the bowl is sanitized after each use. Because there are no filters, there is no chance of infection.”
Sorrenti is a member of Matter of Trust (MatterofTrust.org), where she donates hair clippings to make hair mats that soak up oil spills. “Last year, more than 2,600 spills occurred around the world. For the BP Oil spill, we collected hair from all over the United States and Canada,” notes Sorrenti.
The salon’s FAB PRO Green Conscious Salon certification is an effort designed by the Florida Association of Beauty Professionals to help direct and encourage salons to both decrease their carbon footprint and save money by reducing energy costs.
