About Us

Changing the world, one head at a time

Lola was created by Gina Petty with one single mission… To change the world one head at a time. Gina and the Lola team know that when YOU KNOW you look good…you behave differently. You are more affectionate with your partner, you’re more patient with your children, kinder to strangers, and more adventurous in your pursuit of greatness. That energy is contagious and spreads like wildflowers! It is our mission to give you the added confidence that comes from looking and feeling your very best. That confidence is where changing the world one head at a time begins!

Team Work

Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much.

Green Circle Salon

Products to nourish your hair and soul.

We recycle hair clippings, used foils, color-tubes, excess hair color, papers and plastics, glass, and waxing waste, and help divert them from landfills and waterways. We are able to turn what was once considered waste into valuable resources! We help repurpose this beauty waste and give it a new life. Thank you to all of our guests for helping too!

Ever wonder what Green Circle Salons does with the 42,122 lbs of hair color waste that North American salons wash down the drain daily?! By putting it through an incineration process, they separate the chemical from the water to create clean water! Then, the chemical is re-infused back into their power grids for clean energy! As a GCS member, we can be proud we are keeping these chemicals out of our waterways!
