March 22nd marks World Water Day, a global initiative aimed at raising awareness about the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. As a salon committed to sustainable practices, we constantly think about the significance of preserving water and reducing pollution, not only for our planet but also for our community’s well-being.

Water is an essential element in the beauty industry, from shampooing to rinsing to various treatments. According to research by the Environmental Protection Agency, the average salon can use up to 1,136 liters of water per day. This staggering figure highlights the urgent need for businesses like ours to take responsibility for our water consumption.


Preserving Beauty, Conserving Water: Our Pledge on World Water Day

One of the ways we address this issue is by implementing water-saving techniques in our salon operations. From low-flow faucets to water-efficient equipment, we have invested in technologies that minimise our water usage without compromising the quality of service we provide:

Our hairdressers use eco-shower heads that save both the water and your hair from damage using a unique filtration-system.

We actively educate our colleagues about the importance of water conservation and encourage them to adopt practices that reduce water waste during client appointments.

However, our commitment to sustainability has to go beyond water conservation. We are also dedicated to minimising pollution, especially in the context of hair colouring — a process that can produce potentially toxic waste if not handled responsibly. At Figaro London, we have implemented innovative measures to tackle this challenge.


From Dye to Drop: Our Way of Redefining Sustainability in Hair Colour


When it comes to hair colouring, we realised that precise measurements are key to minimise waste. That’s why we have adopted a unique approach: measuring colour in grams and charging for it accordingly. This means that our hairdressers are incentivised to use colour judiciously, ensuring that only the necessary amount is used for each client’s treatment. By charging for colour in grams, we eliminate unnecessary waste and ensure that clients are billed accurately for the exact amount of product used — no more, no less.


Measuring Up: Why Every Gram Counts


This approach not only benefits the environment by reducing chemical waste but also enhances the client experience by promoting transparency and cost-effectiveness. Clients can rest assured that they are receiving personalised service tailored to their needs, without any unnecessary product wastage.

As we celebrate World Water Day, we reaffirm our commitment to these sustainable practices. By prioritising water conservation, minimising pollution, and adopting innovative solutions like our colour-measuring system, we strive to set a positive example for the beauty industry and inspire others to join us in our journey towards a more sustainable future.

Together, let’s celebrate the beauty of sustainability and work towards a world where every drop of water is cherished and protected for generations to come.



Join us in our mission to make beauty not only skin deep but also environmentally conscious.
