We use Easydry disposable towels in salon for all services. The amount of electric used for washing and drying conventional towels, creates a big bill on salons, and also a big problem on the environment. These towels are super absorbable and we recycle these, rather than throw them away. If you would like to take yours after your appointment, let your stylist know, as they are great for cleaning mirrors and glass, and pick up a lot of dust when used damp.
We have plenty of vegan friendly products available in salon and to take home. Here are a few:
Matrix Permanent and Demi colours

“Hair has no gender, you don’t pay for gender at the dentist or the tattooists, why should you with your hair”
The our salon in the West Midlands has removed gender – specific pricing in a bid to become more inclusive. Antidote hair Ltd in Perton, near Wolverhampton will instead charge people based on the length and time taken on their hair and the stylist level.
This will see a ‘more fair and transparent pricing structure’ being offered to all clients.
Generally, unisex salons traditionally charge their gents less than their females – where is there gender equality with that?
“We want to take away the gender stereotypes when people are booking an appointment because, at the end of the day, it’s all hair and hair has no gender.”
“We have decided to break our prices down into different categories – clipper cut, wash & cut and 40 or 60 minute cut and blow-dry. This change means that both men and women who have the same length of hair, will be charged for the same price, as it takes the same amount of time.”
We, at Antidote, look at the traditional way hairdressers charge for their work, and look at how we want to make the salon experience a safe space and more inclusive for everybody who visits.
Sarah, the owner, works very closely with the global colour brand Matrix as part of their education team. Matrix has recently been rebranded with a new vision, everyone is welcome, all hair types, all humans, and it got her thinking of how that can migrate into the salon.
A person who identifies as non-binary will now be able to book for a haircut without assigning a gender to themselves.
