Midori Eco Salon is Green Goodness in the Heart of Sandton
07 November 2013

Ya no look, I'm no tree-hugger, but wherever possible, I try to do my bit for the environment. It's the small things that matter such as saving electricity, avoiding red meat wherever possible, or recycling. So, when I recently found out about Midori Eco Salon in Sandton, I was excited to extend my "tree-hugging" ways to my beauty routine.

Midori Entrance

Midori is situated in Green Park, Sandton - the first urban environmental lifestyle development of its kind in the area. Refreshingly, it is a "one stop shop" for all your beauty needs boasting hair, nail, and beauty services.

So what makes it an eco salon? 'Midori' means 'green' in Japanese and they have gone out of their way to reduce their carbon footprint. From the fittings, the lights, the equipment used, and the products, every effort is made to ensure only organic enters the premises. You can imagine how good this is for you in terms of treatments, too!

Another aspect of the salon that I loved was that I honestly felt like I was the only person there. The therapists are so friendly, accomodating, and kind that you kinda feel like you should have a crown on your head. From the cappuccinos served in Le Creuset cups to the sleep-inducing head massages, it's not just another trip to the salon, it's an experience.

I had a hydrating treatment done on my hair as well as a blow-dry. My hair feels so healthy and I loved the style they crafted. I'm looking so forward to going back and trying out their other yummy treatments.
