The word yoke means to join two things together. Our ethos is one of collaborative and creative work that yields uncompromisingly good results. Run by a highly experienced husband and wife team, YOKE is a sustainable, ethically focused salon dedicated to creating beautiful hair without compromising on condition, or on the environment.

YOKE is an ethical, environmentally aware salon, with a focus on sustainability and using eco friendly products. Where possible, we avoid using harsh chemicals that could damage the environment, and your hair. We recycle as much as we can, and we use Eco-towels, which mean that energy consumption in washing and drying is cut by up to 40%, and water use by around 15%. 

YOKE exclusively uses the very best L’Oreal products, and our head colourist holds the highly sought after L’Oreal Colour Specialist qualification, which you won’t find anywhere else in the city.

We look forward to welcoming you,

The YOKE team

At YOKE, we love amazing hair, but we don’t want it to cost the earth. We believe that enough damage is being done to the environment, so we want to be responsible for our own footprint.

Wherever possible, we will minimise energy use and waste, use eco-friendly products, and recycle.

 

  • We use Simply Dry towels, made from 100% Bamboo and are biodegradable.

  • Our waste is managed in an eco friendly way, to minimise the environmental impact - recycling everything that can be recycled, and turning anything that cannot be recycled into fuel.

  • We only use eco friendly cleaning products in the salon.

  • We encourage the refilling of empty shampoo and conditioner bottles.

  • We only use recycled, uncoated paper and card for our marketing materials.

  • Our stylists only use reusable gloves, minimising waste and environmental impact.

  • We use Ecoheads Shower heads at the backwash which reduce water usage by up to 65%

  • Where possible we avoid the use of single-use plastic and endeavour to recycle any plastics that we have to use.
