Disclosure: We received free services from Juju Salon & Organics, but all opinions are my own.
Recently we were invited to a media event at Juju Salon & Organics in Philadelphia. Between the inspirational chalkboard and the cute window displays, we were smitten by the ambiance before we even stepped foot into the salon. When we walked in we were greeted by a cozy waiting area to the left and a display of products that looked more like an Anthropologie display, not the usual industrial displays at salons I have been to in the past.
There was something lacking when we walked in the door, and I was very appreciative. I noticed immediately that I wasn’t gasping for a breath of fresh air. In fact, I found my breathing relaxed and tranquil. I had been long turned off by the abrasive chemicals used in salons, and I was amazed by the fact that they only used products with low or no VOCs at Juju Salon & Organics. Ammonia free hair coloring and no synthetic fragrances? Sounds like a place I feel comfortable at. Add to that the scents of lavender, sage, verbena, and peppermint and it sounds like a place you are going to have to drag me out of.
I spoke with Julie Ebner, the salon owner, while she used a soy based wax to clean up my eyebrows. She is a vegan and mother to two girls, so she wanted to create a salon that was better for the environment and better for her clients. Juju Salon & Organics is a very friendly place for young girls, too. Maeby received her first official manicure while we were there. They had a vast array of Zoya polishes to choose from, and Maeby chose a purple shade: “Hudson.”
Located in the back of the salon, the manicure stations look like a living room. The dimmed lighting really helped relax Maeby. I have never seen my little wiggle worm stay this still. If she had her way, she would go back every day to get her nails painted.
We had a lovely time and would love to return again.
