Conscious Hair & Beauty by Phorest Salon Software gives the opportunity for like-minded salon owners and managers to network and learn about the importance of sustainability and wellness within the fast-paced world of hair and beauty salons. The event is inspired by the damage to our environment and the increase of plastic waste - our aim is to become more knowledgeable about the products we use, our actions & habits, and how they are key in discovering how we can make friendlier choices for both the environment as well as for ourselves.  


When: Sunday, 18th August 2019


Where: OXO2, Southbank, London




We have some really interesting speakers & panelists (some of which are salon owners) speaking about their experiences, as well as the opportunity to network and chat. The goal is simple; to meet with, and provide a space, for industry professionals with the same goal; sustainability & wellness for individuals & the earth! 🌍

Come along for...
