Holistic hairdressing

Everything you need to know about Lush’s holistic approach to hairdressing.

This Autumn, Lush’s new HairLab concept is landing in Brighton, giving clients healthy hair that cares for the planet.

The salon is set to cater for all hair types, reduce salon waste and feature a unique ‘spa for your head’.

Coming to Trafalgar Square and Brighton in autumn 2023, the Lush HairLab is a salon embracing a holistic approach to hairdressing and barbering, welcoming clients with all hair types to be free to be themselves, and leave as they’d like to be.

The salon will also feature a botanical wash room where clients are bathed in light and sound, with hair and scalp treated with the choice of hard or soft water, using Lush’s award-winning hair care products and herbal infusions.

A team of texture-specialist hair artists listens intently to the client’s desires, working in collaboration with them to express their personal aesthetic like never before.

Brighton’s Lush HairLab is determined to revolutionise the hair industry, using natural hair colouring and reducing salon waste.

Rubbish produced by the hairdressing sector in the UK could fill 50 football stadiums every year. Most of it – including aluminium foil, dye tubes and the majority of cut hair – is sent straight to landfill – even though foil can be recycled an infinite number of times.

Hair cuttings are also usually thrown in the bin, despite the fact that these can be used to soak up oil from the ocean floor and help fertilise food crops!

Washing, cutting and styling are further complimented by Lush’s henna hair dye – a natural hair colouring choice.

To fit with Lush’s ‘all are welcome, always’ philosophy, the HairLab will offer no-mirror and silent treatments, quiet hours with reduced music and lighting, and gender-affirming events, such as trans masculine shaving workshops.

Daisy Evans, Lush Hair Lead, said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming everyone to the Lush HairLab to witness the future of hair services – where self-expression and excellence combine to redefine your hair journey, leading by example in the hair industry.”
