Welcome to Streak of Green, Nicole's own unique concept from the root to ends! At Streak of Green you will not have to give up quality or the latest styles. I am a full service hair salon delivering what you want while still maintaining your pH and integrity of your hair.
When you step into the salon you will smell clean, fresh air. The atmosphere is very relaxing, comfortable and calming. Everyone knows we have to be more aware of how we take care of ourselves and the environment. Here are some ways Streak of Green is making a difference:
Every piece of cut hair is recycled into hair booms
ABOVE & BEYOND
All used PPE, extra colour, used foils, plastics and other products not recycled in Thunder Bay are sent away to be recycled instead of in the water ways or landfills
All our products contain NO sulfates, ammonia, parabens, plastics, phthalates animal by products or animal testing
Most products contain certified organic ingredients
THE EARTH IS OUR PRIORITY
My salon concept keeps the environment in mind for everything I do and purchase
BESIDES THE PRODUCTS WE CARRY, HERE ARE SOME OTHER WAYS STREAK OF GREEN IS HELPING THE ENVIRONMENT
Joined Green Circle Salons Recycling program for hair, foils, plastics, left over colour in bowls and more
We use non carcinogenic and biodegradable cleaners, soaps etc.
Hair is recycled to Green Circle Salons for Hair Booms
We use biodegradable garbage bags (we only have one small bag of garbage a month)

We are computerized for appointments
All lights are LED which saves 50% on the hydro bill
