Leading Vitamin Brand, ‘Viridian’ at Partners Hair, Dundee
Partners Hair are thrilled to present Viridian Nutrition products – ‘The leading brand of ethical vitamins’ to our Dundee Hair & Beauty Salon.
Some of the key reasons why Partners Hair love the Viridian range, are its commitment to environmental issues, charity donation programmes and certified organic ingredients – which all very much mirror the ethical integrity of AVEDA, another trusted brand at Partners Hair.
“Organics are better for the health of the planet and of the individual.” says Viridian co-founder Cheryl Thallon.
