1st Sustainable Salon
in Co. Kildare
We are Co. Kildare’s first sustainable salon, providing a delightful retreat championing sustainability.
Offering the nourishing OB-1 hair experience, whilst leaving a minimal footprint on the planet, we are dedicated to achieving beautiful hair for all clients and on a thriving planet.
With no planet B, OB-1 is committed to being part of the solution, transforming our place and people to better serve our precious planet.
We add €2 to all services to assist in the costs.
Through our partnership with Green Salon Collective, OB-1 proudly sends ZERO waste to landfill, instead transforming all waste into something new, creating meaningful wins for our planet.
Making the salon a healthier space for staff and clients to experience, OB-1 is harnessing plant power with an indoor plant wall, helping to purify the air and offering the perfect backdrop to celebrate our clients’ transformations.
Sustainability is just as much about people. OB-1 empowers its team by working with a life coach and by transforming staff work/life balance, ensuring we look out for our minds, each other, and our planet.
OB-1 seeks to harness the powerful connection between stylists and clients to unite and lead the sustainable conversation within hair beauty.
This is a mission which OB-1 invites everyone to join.

Cancellation & No Show Policy
We ask you to realise that when you forget your appointment or fail to cancel with enough notice in advance, we miss out on an opportunity to fill that time slot, and our standby clients miss the chance to receive our services. Since we realize that it is easy to forget an appointment made months in advance, all our appointments are confirmed by sms in advance. Cancellation fees will apply and we will require you to provide your credit card information. 1} Less than 48 hours’ notice will result in a fee of 100% of the reserved service price. 2) "No show" will likewise be charged 100% of the booked service price. The purpose of this cancellation policy is to enable us to inform our standby clients of any availability, keep our schedule filled, thus providing better service for each one of our established and future clients. You need to PHONE us at least 48 hrs in advance of your hair appointment to either cancel or reschedule if you want to avoid paying cancellation costs. Thank you for viewing and supporting our cancellation terms and conditions. We appreciate your support & loyalty.
