Enjoy Organic Hair Care at Upstairs Hair Affair Salon

In its ongoing effort as an environmentally conscious salon, Upstairs Hair Affair has joined Green Circle Salons (, an organization with a mission to make the North American salon industry sustainable by 2020. Green Circle recycles hair from member salons into mats that absorb oil in oil spills. They also recycle and repurpose foils, color tubes, plastics, papers and chemicals to ensure they are diverted out of waste and water streams.

Upstairs Hair affair, in Morton Grove, uses organic shampoos, conditioners, keratin and color systems with no ammonia, parabens or thioglycolates. All products contain certified organic active ingredients; perms contain certified organic plant extracts for superb curl retention and natural, healthy bounce. Owner Lori Goldstein says the organic color works as well as or better than ammoniated, chemical-laden brands, with superior gray coverage and hair that maintains a gorgeous, shiny luster.

“The second floor salon is very private and peaceful, and no one is looking in the window when you have color in your hair,” says Goldstein. “Two walls of windows let the sun in and you can watch the sunset while enjoying a complimentary glass of wine and getting your hair done.” In addition, clients can enjoy healthy snacks, craft beer, coffee, tea and bottled water.

New salon offerings include special occasion styles and updos for the holidays and special occasions. Goldstein offers a free, downloadable online consumer guide on her website, The 7 Biggest Mistakes People Make When Choosing a Salon & How to Avoid Them, which includes beauty secrets and tips.
