Stacy Long, the owner of Stasia's Organic Element, conceived the idea of all natural, organic hair salon in 2008.

The idea came as the result of Stacy's personal lifestyle change, after adopting a holistic approach in all other areas of her life.

Her choice to switch to organics was a necessity, not a fad. After years of battling severe eczema with countless conventional medications, the doctors' verdict for Stacy was to switch her career path. Unable to give up her passion for hair design, Stacy continued looking for alternative solutions to her skin problem. Amazingly, she found answers on the shelves of a local health food store in the form organic foods and skin products.

We use organic color and products exclusively. We believe in it that much & about protecting your health, our health and the environment!

Organic Hair Care

Soon after switching to organic living, Stacy's skin was:

  • "Magically" transformed
  • Started to heal
  • In order to be completely eczema free, she had to make one final change
  • Products used for clients' hair

Stacy spent much time looking, researching and testing her now "tried and true" color and curl professional line of hair products. With much support from the clients, the salon is proud to be a true "organic hair care" salon and uses as many organic elements as possible.
