There is a new face on Main Street at Gardiner Gables. The Green Room is an organic hair care salon with three owners, Kristen Nicoli, Allie Demorest, and Tina Betterton. These three woman have a great deal of collective experience and expertise, and have decided to parlay that knowledge up a notch. The guiding principle for their services is that neither the client nor the operator should have to choose between health and beauty. At the Green Room, you can have both!
A conventional hair salon often includes an atmosphere of toxic chemicals that are part of the hair styling process as well as the nail care process. Products are applied to the scalp and skin where they’re absorbed into the body. The stylist who spends all day in that environment is exposed to these chemicals, as is the client during treatment.
The Green Room uses only products made by Oway, as in “organic way.” The three owners of the Green Room are committed to providing their clients the same kind of results they’re accustomed to with traditional hair care practices, but without sacrificing health for either the stylist or the client.
Prices at The Green Room are moderate: the organic hair coloring system, which works better than conventional chemical hair coloring because it covers gray, and is actually good for your hair and scalp, is $75. Highlights run from $60 to $100. Haircuts are $45, cut and color are $95. Lip, chin and eyebrow waxing run $10-$15 each.
The Green Room is open at Gardiner Gables, 2356 Route 44/55, Tuesday through Saturday. Reserve an appointment by calling (845) 419-2125. More information is available at www.thegreenroom-gardiner.com or visit “The Green Room” on Facebook.
