We had the good fortune of connecting with Kim Tran Leeanne Heathcote and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kim Tran, what do you attribute your success to?
The single most important factor behind our salon’s success is our unwavering commitment to our core values. We anchor ourselves within the community and lean in for inspiration.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Eco Chic is a 100% Vegan and toxic-free salon located in San Diego and is deeply devoted to sustainability. And while we can’t remedy all environmental issues we can be more eco-conscious. We know that attention to the sustainability spectrum from water waste to energy use is becoming paramount in the beauty industry. That’s why we’re proud to be a Green Circle certified salon. What does that really mean? We divert salon and spa waster from landfills and waterways. Hair clippings, excess hair color, foils, and so much more are recycled at our salon.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
