Third Party Certification is the best way to confirm
a business is what it says it is.
The Salon & Spa Sustainability certification process evaluates salons and spas in areas of build out, operations and maintenance.
I‘m am honored to congratulate Matt Walsh and his team at Splish Salon Systems from Keystone, CO who were awarded NAEFSS PLATINUM LEVEL! Read about his experience below.
When developing this certification plan, there was always a need to strike a balance between the concern that salon and spa owners might find it too difficult and overwhelming to finish and the concern that it would not be well respected by fellow sustainability professionals if it were too easy.

Testimonial from Splish Salon
As an eco-preneur and owner of an eco-friendly hair salon and salon franchise, I have been extremely skeptical about the plethora or environmental certifications that are available today. For many of these all you need to do is complete a very brief application, pay a few bucks and you are certified.
This is not the case with the certification process provided by the National Association of Eco-Friendly Salons & Spas (NAEFSS). If you are serious about certifying your salon or spa, then I recommend this certification over all others. This is the only certification I have completed that made our team look seriously at everything we do within our business, not just how we cover our walls or floors. This is not a simple certification. It will challenge you and your team but if you believe in raising the bar of your salon or spa, then this is the ONLY certification I personally recommend committing too.
We have also been very pleased with the press we have received since receiving this certification. We at Splish believe the time is now for all salons to raise the bar of eco-awareness and acquiring this certification is a great start to accomplishing just that.

The Quest for Sustainability is growing at a rapid pace. Technological advances and new product offerings are flooding the market place, while existing technology and products are proving their value. Be assured the certification process as well as requirements for Salon & Spa Owners will evolve as well. Requirements will be reviewed every two to three years to ensure the best appropriate rating system.
Three certification levels will be awarded based on points accumulated from addressing objectives, meeting requirements and submitting documentation for point credits in eleven categories.
After registering your salon/spa for certification, you will receive a certification packet. In this packet you will be given all the information needed to apply green strategies to the extent which is reasonable for your salon and or spa. Once the required worksheets and documentation are returned, they will be evaluated. Your salon/spa will receive our freestanding glass award, shown above, stating the appropriate level of certification.
