Ippatsu Salon
Ippatsu is a premier hair salon in the heart of downtown Champaign. Ippatsu strives to be the most reliable and reputable source for all hair-related needs and send its customers out into the world with a fresh new look! They challenge you to come experience the Ippatsu difference for yourself. Ippatsu had a green philosophy before hearing about the IGBA, and has since taken even more strides to green their business. Ippatsu recently installed blinds in the front windows to reduce solar gain in the summer, donated old salon chairs to a local non-profit, regularly stocks organic and eco-friendly hair products, encourages employees to turn off equipment by power strips when not in use, and donates hair to Matter of Trust to assist in the Gulf of Mexico oil spill (http://www.matteroftrust.org/).
