Cutting hair & salon waste

Hairhouse X Sustainable Salons rescue and recycle salon waste to reduce our impact on the planet and give back to our local communities.

Up to 95% of the resources used during your visit are diverted from landfill and sent for recycling thanks to our partnership with Sustainable Salons.

Recycling program

Used every last drop of your haircare? You can recycle your empty haircare bottles with us! Our Hairhouse X Sustainable Salons stores collect, recycle and repurpose haircare bottles to cut down on waste going to landfill.

How it works

Step 1: Wash and dry your used-up haircare bottles. We recycle haircare empties from any brand!
