Onesta Earth Day Winners

Salon En Vogue in Dartmouth, Massachusetts was Onesta’s National Earth Day Display Contest Grand Prize Winner! This salon stood out above the rest with its artisanship, creativity, and dedication to being green.

Onesta Earth Day Winners

The multi-dimensional use of hanging live plants, recycled and re-purposed materials, and the use of botanicals native to the region made this a top notch display. The staff at the salon demonstrated an ability to think outside the box while keeping the display and the message 100 percent “green.” (They even made non-toxic glue from cornstarch, flour, & water!) However, it was the inclusion of other local “green” businesses, the sale of saplings in the salon, a staff sponsored bake sale, and donation of 10 percent of their Onesta sales (all to benefit a local environmentally-focused non-profit) that drove this entry over the top.

This salon won an Evening with Onesta, featuring salon environmentalist and president Michael Redmond and a Product Knowledge class by an Onesta National Platform Artist. Each stylist also received a station set up valued at $80!
