    6 of Philly’s Best Organic Salons

    Ladies and gents, let’s talk salons. Most of us enjoy the occasional mani-pedi or maybe treating ourselves to a balayage once in awhile. The ugly truth of these luxuries we enjoy is that many salons use products containing harsh chemicals. Chemicals are a no-no when it comes to products that are being applied directly to your skin, scalp, and nails. Luckily, there are other options that allow you to indulge in the full salon experience without worrying.

    If you’re ready to ditch (or cut back on) the traditional salons and go organic, we’ve got you covered. Read on for some guilt-free nail and hair salon options in the city.
