Seeing Hair Today at the Cornwall Vegan Festival had reminded me that it was about time I tamed my wild silvering locks. It had after all been at least three years since I had set foot in the hairdressers. On Friday, I also found myself in Falmouth for a couple of hours before our staff Christmas party. All indications were pointing towards a trip to Hair Today; the only place I consider for such treats.
Apart from the fact that hairdressing salons are not my natural environment, the other reason I leave it so long between having haircuts is the fact that it is pretty difficult to find a hairdressers that don't use chemical, animal based/tested products. In fact as far as I know, Hair Today is the only place that doesn't 'round these parts'. It is a shame it is all the way down in Falmouth as I would certainly visit more often and my hair would be far less in the state of 'wild woman of the mountains' as a result.
Hair Today is an organic hair salon in Falmouth that use 100% vegan and cruelty-free hair colour and products. That is the backbone on which their ethos is based and, with the marketplace seemingly saturated with hairdressing salons, it is one that definitely attracts a niche but increasing customer base. When I started out on my vegan journey almost 30 years ago, it never occurred to me to extend my ethos during visits to the hairdressers. I think it is one of those things that came along at a later date when all the rest of the vegan changes had settled down. There were really no alternatives back then either so probably one of the reasons I was so lazy in taking trips to the hairdressers! I think new vegans these days are so much better informed and so no doubt catch on a little quicker to the changes they need to make. Thank goodness therefore that places like Hair Today exist to cater for these changes and needs.
With more than a decade each of experience, Emma and Hayley have no shortage of creative knowledge when it comes to your locks. I literally have no idea of style when it comes to hair but I felt more than relaxed and confident to leave my thick mop in their capable hands (especially after Hayley massaged my head whilst washing my hair!). They will even make you a cup of tea with soya milk whilst you get pampered! Needless to say the atmosphere at Hair Today is very laid back. I am no expert when it comes to hairdressing salon visits but I know that some I have visited in the past have left me squirming from false atmospheres and pungent chemical smells. Hair Today is a natural environment in more ways than one. So if you are a vegan, ethical, organic, natural, chemical dodging, wild haired, hairdressing phobic like me (or any of the above), there is only one simple choice in my view - to put yourself in the capable, gentle and kind hands of Emma and Hayley at Hair Today in Falmouth.
