Growth For You’re Hair, Our Business, and The Planet!

As of January 3rd we are now & forever a Certified Green Circle Salon.

What on Earth could this mean? Well… it means we are over 95% Waste FREE!

Allow me to explain. By being members of The Green Circle Recycling Program we are able to divert nearly All of our Waste Away from Landfills and out of our Water.

We Can Now RECYCLE: All Plastics, 1-7, including packaging, plastic bags, and tops/lids to containers (even our color tubes); All Metals, aluminum foil from hair coloring, color tubes, and aerosol cans; Everything Paper that isn’t waxed or covered in food/body waste; ALL HAIR; ALL HAIR COLOR; and a slew of materials that are not otherwise recyclable. They call this last group “Waste to Energy.”

Now that January is over and we’ve had a month to implement the program, here are the results….

In the past 4 weeks we’ve only had to throw away 1 bag of trash. ONLY ONE! For an Entire Month! Made up of mainly food & plant waste, and the occasional questionable material that wasn’t specifically mentioned on the list of what was allowed through the program. We had a few fruit flies find us due to the plant matter and bits of food that sat in our garbage for a month. In order to relieve this issue and cut down, Even More, on our “trash,” we’ve made the decision to introduce Vermiculture into our salon.

In our efforts to be as earth friendly and environmentally conscious as possible we will be implementing a live worm bin where our food scraps, plant materials, newspaper, and even cardboard, will become food for our little friends and turned into fertilizer for our plant babies.

Here is a link to more information about Vermiculture and Worm Bins:

Salon News

Everyone here at Bambu seems to have their lives on full speed. Chris Kiss is working hard making a name for himself through hair, through some of the cosmetolgy world’s top distributors, as well as through the nightlife. Josh DeBlock is staying strong with his full book of clients and events. Carey Hinrichs seems to be working wedding after wedding and having a blast with her insane make-up skills while doing it. Kim Maxwell is learning a lot from the crew and building her client list while being a stylist alongside Carey at many of Bambu’s events. Through all this, they all still have time to see their loyal client base while making new ones. The work life of a stylist is hard, but the fun never ends when you love what you do, like they do.

We have had many updates about Cotê lately, and I am hoping you all know what it by now. I want to take a moment to talk about our other products you love, Onesta. Here is something new.


Onesta says it best, “Onesta Refresh Dry Shampoo uses a natural tapioca starch to absorb excess oil and buildup. Our lightweight formula leaves hair refreshed while adding body and texture. Onesta’s powerful blend of certified organic Milk Thistle, Green Tea, and Rhatany Root helps protect hair color and vitality.”

  • ideal for all hair types and colors
    uses a natural tapioca and rice starch to absorb excess oil and buildup
    adds body and texture to hair
    fortified with Collagen Amino Acids and Biotin to naturally boost healthy hair
    natural Lemongrass Coconut fragrance leaves hair smelling fresh

We still carry all of our other and loved hair care and style products by Onesta.

Take a moment to check in with your favorite stylist once in a while, whether you’re booking an appointment or not. They love it when you do.

Until next time!
