Making an Impact
Chatters strives to impact the hair and beauty industry through the development of new initiatives, programs and partnerships that help foster positive change.
The Style Consciously initiative encourages Chatters’ clients and consumers to make mindful choices that positively impact their health, lifestyle and the environment without sacrificing luxury. In consultation with brand partners, each product is carefully vetted to determine which meet the four Style Consciously pillars: Clean, Sustainable, Vegan and Cruelty-Free.
Chatters is currently the largest salon chain in North America to be Green Circle certified. They divert up to 95 per cent of the beauty waste created in salon by recovering things like hair clippings, metal waste, PPE, excess colour products and plastics.
Giving back is a core component of their DNA. They proudly support organizations like Ronald McDonald House Canada, Dress for Success Canada and It Gets Better Canada.
