Eco-Friendly LA Salon Pioneers Sustainable Service Industry

By Maressa Brown

Leave it to California to play host to a new salon that's as committed to a majorly green initiative as it is to cutting-edge hair design. Colorist Lorri Goddard and stylist Cory Scott have partnered to open Loft 647, a West Hollywood hair salon that manages to incorporate eco-conscious elements and practices into almost every aspect of the business. 

Scott recently explained to Vogue that while planning the salon's decor, they opted to “bring the outside inside by the use of  natural, raw materials that we sourced locally." They also went so far as to consult the NASA study on Interior Landscape Plants for Indoor Air Pollution Abatement to figure out which plants would be best for the space, which is often filled with chemicals like ammonia and formaldehyde that generally can't be avoided at a high-end salon. Ultimately, they went with snake plants, rubber plants, dracaena, and fiddle leaf trees.
