We are a Sustainable Salon
95% of our waste gets recycled! That means your hair we cut will either go to make hair booms to help clean up oil spills or a charitable wig making service, the proceeds your foil will gain from recycling will go to Oz Harest , left over chemicals from hair colour will be recycled into new liquids and that’s only some of what we will be achieving!
You may be surprised to learn that the Australian hairdressing industry sends 1,500 tons of recyclable aluminium back to landfill each year. That’s one and a half million kilos, about 715 cars, or 4 jumbo jets!
Unfortunately, aluminium doesn’t degrade easily, it actually contaminates the soil for 500 years. Add to this the waste of plastics, colour tubes, cut hair and more, and you soon see that beauty at any price is no longer an option.
After joining Sustainable Salons Australia (SSA), We at Infinity are set to change all this.
We recycle 95% of our waste by using the comprehensive resource recovery service offered by Sustainable Salons Australia. “We are committed to sustainable growth that encourages social responsibility and respect for the planet. This simple initiative can make all the difference to what was once landfill waste become a future resource”,
Rather than contaminating the waterways, excess shampoo and hair colour waste now go to a chemical recycler. Plastics are also recycled into construction material and gardening equipment. What’s more, Infinity staff love that the proceeds from recycling benefit the community through several programs. Every kilo of recycled aluminium helps Oz Harvest fund four meals for the homeless. Ponytails go to the Variety Charity to provide wigs to children with alopecia, while cut hair is made into booms used to absorb oil spills.
As clients become more aware of the impact products have on the environment, they have also welcomed the opportunity to make a difference. “The hairdressing industry needs to take action now, and take care of the environment as much as we take care of clients”, says Paul Frasca, co-founder of SSA. “Kristy and Heidi really care about making their salon as eco-friendly as possible. When they looked at what they could do to become more sustainable both ecologically and economically, Sustainable Salons Australia was the obvious choice.”
By joining Sustainable Salons Australia, Infinity is happy it can support charities and benefit the community, while also taking care of a huge waste problem.

“I never get bored, I love transforming people on the outside and inside”
Heidi began her career back in 1992, winning numerous awards including apprentice of the year twice, Wella stylist of the year and came first at Tafe in science which paved the way for her interest in trichology – the scientific study of the health of hair and scalp. Heidi bought the salon in 2002 and built it from humble beginnings to the successful business it is today. She specialises in colour and enjoys experimenting with new formulas to challenge her creative mind.
