The Purple Petal Hair Salon opened its doors in June of 2009. A lifelong dream finally became a reality for owner and stylist Shane-Elizabeth Brown. Shane wanted a personal salon where the stress of the day-to-day can melt away with undivided attention. Not only is the client our priority, but we also care about our planet. From every haircut we donate the hair clippings to Matter of Trust. They then turn our hair clippings into hair mats to soak up oils spills across the world. This means that there are less chemicals in our oceans which helps preserve wildlife.

The products are also eco-friendly. L’anza products and hair color are made from organic botanical and wild craft plants and flowers. They fund to help save the rain forest and are registered with PETA for no animal testing. Their color is the only hair color that heals, seals, and protects the hair for incredible results.
