Eco-Friendly Hair Salon in Chestnut Hill

SL8 Hair Lounge owner and stylist Danielle DiGiovanni is a Jean Madeline graduate with 20 years of experience, specializing in color and event styling. She is certified in Brazilian blowouts and Babe hair extensions, as well as skilled in the art of grey blending. Inspired by nature and passionate about hair, she combined the two to create SL8, an eco-friendly hair salon in January 2017 in Chestnut Hill.

DiGiovanni says, “SL8 is our way of offering clients a salon that uses only safe, clean and pure products for beautiful healthy hair, while protecting the environment and standing up for animal rights.” SL8 collaborates on events with local retail stores, bridal boutiques, salons and makeup artists. She is available for on-site hair and makeup assignments for weddings, bar mitzvahs, photo shoots and more.

“Let's face it, being a mom is one of the hardest jobs out there,” says DiGiovanni. To help unwind, she crafted the Mom's Time Out package. This perfect pampering package includes face framing, which is a blend of high and low lights, to accentuate the client’s features, conditioning, relaxing scalp massage, blow dry, style and most importantly, peace and quiet.

 “Our belief at SL8 is that beauty comes from within. We strive to keep our products pure and eco-friendly. L’anza is 100 percent vegan and gluten-free. Oribe is cruelty-free and vegetarian. We offer Goldwell color for the ingredient-conscious clients. Our mission is to make you beautiful without causing harm to our delicate ecosystem,” advises DiGiovanni.

Oribe and L’anza are essential for producing beautiful, healthy hair and help support a sustainable environment. Specifically designed to address individual hair needs using the proprietary Keratin Bond System, L’anza is able to target the causes of hair damage, not just the symptoms.

SL8 Hair Lounge is located at 8135 Germantown Ave., in Philadelphia. For appointments, call 215-248-2000 or visit
