Signature Styles Offers “Green” Beauty Products (written by Glennis Drew)

team-02The owner of Signature Styles salon in Montpelier, Tess Onorato, and her entire staff (Jenn Lincoln, Brenda Brassard, Juliet Walker, and Jessica Millett) have completed training as ”Certified Ouidad Curl Specialists” through the Ouidad (pronounced “we— Dad”) product line. Ouidad products are specifically formulated for curly and wavy hair. They are offering free personalized consultations for clients with all types of curls, from wavy to kinky.

The salon, located in the covered walkway to the Capitol Plaza Hotel, was chosen by Ouidad as the exclusive retail outlet for their products in Central Vermont. Signature Styles carries the entire line of Ouidad’s gluten-free styling products, which were originally developed in 1985 and marketed under the name, “Curly Girl.”

While “gluten free” is not normally something associated with hair care products, Onorato stressed “Sixty percent of what goes on your skin is absorbed into your bloodstream!” For those allergic to gluten this is good news, said Onorato, “Without a doubt, our bodies are constantly exposed to many chemicals in our personal care products, home cleaners, and environment. And as women, we may be sustaining even more damage from toxins and chemicals. Our skin soaks in everything . . . the good and the bad. Soaps, lotions, makeup, lipstick, mascara, eye shadow, toothpaste, and hair-care products are known to harbor toxic chemicals. Yet no one does anything to ban or stop the use of such things. The FDA doesn't regulate the ingredients in cosmetics.”

Signature Styles is part of the current “green beauty revolution” taking place across the country. Before your mind goes to the wicked witch makeup from the Wizard of Oz, please be assured that the “green” reference is to all-natural products free of dyes, perfumes, and other chemicals, which, along with diet and exercise all contribute to the “green beauty” movement.

In addition to the Ouidad product line, Signature Styles carries Alima Pure organic makeup, manufactured in Portland, Oregon, along with Hynt beauty products and EcoBrow. All of these lines are plant- or mineral-based and use non -toxic, naturally derived preservatives.

Eco BrowHynt beauty products were developed by Meryl Marshall—the president and chief product officer as well as a breast cancer survivor—after Marshall searched for a carcinogen-free line of makeup using state-of-the-art natural formulations. Unable to find products that would make her feel beautiful while not introducing harmful chemicals to her skin, she developed her own.

Signature Styles offers a free Hynt all-natural, non-toxic lip gloss with any $49 makeup purchase.
