Good Morning All!! And what a beautiful sunny morning it is! Cat PR girls have been supper busy out and about meeting press. At the end of last week Eve Dain took a HJ Reporter, Sophie Hines all the way to Oxford to catch up with the fabulous and super talented Anne Veck. What a fantastic trip it was, Anne Veck happened to be celebrating her newly refurbished Oxford branch salon. However this wasnt just any regular refurbishment, the new Anne Veck Salon is the newest Eco Salon in the UK and is the ONLY salon in the world which has incorporated BlueGen Ceramic fuel technology.
So why is this salon so special…designed by green salon guru Charlie Hearn, paying homage to Matrix haircare, the salon is Environmentally friendly thanks to the implemented BlueGen fuel cell technology that reduces energy use by 50%! In effect the salon has its own mini power station that converts gas to electricity, powers electrical appliances, styling tools as well as heats up water and the entire premises. The system incorporates heat recovery system which uses grey water to heat up the water used at backwashes, as well as that the salon is fitted with LED lighting throughout. This hefty investment of £116,000 is absolutely worth it, promising to cut overall salon running costs by 70% and above all reduce carbon footprint reduction by approximately 6 tons per year!
Going green has never been more glamorous especially when the new salon has become the hippest place on trendy St Clements Street, Oxford. The funky, inviting interior encourages passers -by to pop in and see what’s going on paying Anne compliments on how amazing her brand new salon looks. It is like stepping into a new chic bar except all attention is on your hair! Aston and Fincher have supplied the salon with its funky furnishings, our favourite – The comfy ‘doughnut’ where you can lounge until your hair appointment. And not to mention an impressive ammonia free Matrix colour bar where you can order the perfect new shade for your locks.
