The Hive Natural Beauty Collective in San Luis Obispo knows that caring for yourself also extends to caring for your environment. A salon with an ethical as well as an aesthetic code, Hive fully discloses all of the ingredients of their products, making sure that each meets their standards for purity and health. Extending their eco-consciousness throughout the entire business, Hive educates each employee as to their impact on the environment, uses biodegradable packaging, and recycles whenever possible.
The inspiration for Hive began 3 years ago when Marcia Beck, the salon’s creative director, started searching for non-ammoniated hair color lines. Suffering from burn-out after over 2o years in the industry, Beck was tired of working within an environment full of toxic chemicals. Reinvigorated by her pursuit of a green beauty collective, she has since established a beautiful salon in San Luis Obispo’s Railroad District – at 2033 Santa Barbara St. – and is currently working on certifying her business with the National Association of Eco-Friendly Salons and Spas. Following both a socially and environmentally conscious model, Hive adheres to a detailed manual and holds frequent meetings to discuss their green practices. Featuring brands such as Organic Systems, Davines, and Number 4, Hive is sure to deliver a quality spa experience without the guilt associated with parabens, ammonia, and sulfates.
