ABOUT ARDOR

Here at Ardor Organics, we are leaders in low-toxin haircare and take a holistic approach, meaning safer options are practised for our wellbeing and the planet. Ardor was also proud to be a finalist in the People’s Choice Ausmumpreneur 2020.

Within our salon, there is no offensive odour, no burning chemicals, and no pressure – make the changes at your own speed. Just sit back and relax knowing you’re getting a great colour, haircut, and style with low-toxin, and largely vegan products. We fully customise your service to you. After all, everyone is different and has unique hair and scalp needs, so aftercare is fully tailored to you with a toxin free approach, using products that suit you and your hair. Over the years we have helped many clients with scalp and hair issues.

We harness the expertise of green chemistry, and are Perth's only salon specialising in 100% plant-based, toxin free colours. Hours of research goes into our stocked products and our salon has an amazing range of eco- Brands. Ardor is part of the Sustainable Salons group, where all our waste gets recycled. Plus we compost our food waste ourselves. The companies represented in our salon are chosen because they do not test on animals and have a sustainable outlook themselves. All our products, including our colour, are vegan or have vegan options.

The hairdressing industry contains a lot of hype-words and green-washing (misleading words that make a brand appear more environmentally friendly than they actually are). Make sure to read the labels or shop from our trustworthy stock! You can read more about it on our blog.

If you are a hair salon looking to reduce its use of toxins, we would also love to hear from you. Gemma is an educator and business mentor and has helped many salon owners on their journey to lowering the toxins in their salons and teaching her holistic way of hairdressing, creating happier, healthier clients and hairdressers.

Our Story

Gemma started Ardor Organics back in 2016 when she decided she wanted to return to the hair industry but did not want to work around the toxins that are in most salons these days.
Gemma wanted to create an environment that was tranquil, less chemical laden and healthy, so she began learning how to take a more holistic approach to hairdressing and helping each of her clients on their individual journeys.

OUR VISION

Our mission it to provide salon quality results with the least amount of toxic chemicals possible. We aspire to make a difference not only in your life as a client, but in the hair industry as a whole. Our hope is that in the future, more and more will see the importance of lowering the toxins in our beauty regime. Sit back and relax knowing you’re getting a great colour, haircut, and style without the usual cocktail of nasties.

Low Tox Shop

Hours of research goes into our stocked products and our salon stocks an amazing range of eco brands, some of which are also available at our refill station – bring your empty bottles and fill up! Kinder on our wallets and the planet. We also stock reusable items such as metal straws, and other handy home products, as well as low tox makeup and skincare.
