Smart Tips


Be a turn off

Stop burning energy and money with the flick of a switch by simply turning off all curling and flat irons, blow dryers and all lights when you’re not using them.


Make your move

To motion-sensor lighting. Install in bathrooms and break rooms, so they only come on when needed


Are your lights on but no-one in the salon?

Turn off all electrical equipment including: computers, copy machines and coffee makers at the end of the day.


Bright idea

LED lights are the marathon runners of bulbs – lasting for up to 25,000 hours on average. They might not be suitable for working stations where you want more natural light for colouring, etc. but get these LED champs working for you by using them in your front desk and back-of-house.
