A healthy alternative to the typical salon has not always been available, but now at Pure Elements an Organic Salon we are able to offer you a way to look beautiful while nurturing your body’s health. Located at 1728  Western Avenue; across from the Crossgates Mall main entrance. We are proud to be the only Green salon in Guilderland, NY.

My dedication to organic hairstyling began with a desire to provide clients with exceptional services and products that are non-toxic, healthier and Eco-friendly. After being in the business for 10 years, and constantly being around harmful chemicals, I began to suffer from sinus and lung problems. It was then that I decided to research products that would be safer to use on my clients.

We provide natural and organic hair and nail care, facial waxing and cosmetic services. Studies have shown that ingredients such as ammonia, sodium lauryl sulfate, fillers, parabens, synthetic dyes and formaldehyde may create substantial health risks, including cancer. In an effort to avoid all harmful and dangerous chemicals, our clients can rest assured that their health is in our best interest. Therefore we research all of the products that we use and sell to make sure we find ones that contain natural or organic ingredients whenever possible.

Our mission is to promote and facilitate a healthier planet and sustainable living, while making you look and feel beautiful. When you choose Pure Elements an Organic Salon, you are choosing a healthier and more responsible way to beauty.
