How to Choose the Best Cruelty-Free and Vegan Brands in the UK


Have you ever wondered how to buy vegan and cruelty-free skincare, beauty and hair products? Do you want products from brands that are kind to animals and great for the planet? In this blog, we list down how you can buy the best vegan, cruelty-free skincare in the UK, as well as hair and beauty products. Whether you are a dedicated vegan, just curious about plant-based beauty, or a flexitarian, the following tips and recommendations will help you shop smarter and greener. 

What to Look for When Buying Cruelty-Free Beauty Products 

Cruelty-free beauty products means all products that have not been tested on animals at any stage of their production. This holds true for the brand you are buying from as well as third parties that may have collaborated with the brand. As this is highly unethical and unnecessary too since there are now so many alternative methods of testing products and making them safe and reliable. 

However, cruelty-free and vegan are not entirely the same, as some cruelty-free products may contain animal-derived products such as beeswax. honey, lanolin or carmina. To make sure you’re buying a 100% vegan beauty product in the UK, always look for the certifications and labels from the following authorities: 

  • The Leaping Bunny logo
    This is the most recognised and trusted cruelty-free certification in the world, administered by Cruelty-Free International. It guarantees that no animal testing has been done on the finished product or any of its ingredients, by the brand or its suppliers, anywhere in the world. 
  • The Vegan Society logo

This is the oldest and most respected vegan certification in the UK. It ensures that no animal ingredients or by-products are used in the product or its manufacturing process and that no animal testing has been done by the brand or its suppliers. 

  • The PETA logo

This widely recognised cruelty-free and vegan certification is issued by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. It verifies that no animal testing has been done on the product or its ingredients by the brand or its suppliers and that no animal-derived ingredients are used. 

Additionally, you may visit the brand’s website to check out its official stance on animal testing. Almost all brands that are vegan or cruelty-free, or both have dedicated web pages to show their commitment. If you cannot find a clear stance on animal testing or being vegan, it is safer to avoid that brand altogether. 

Tips on Buying Cruelty-Free Hair Products 

For hair care, you may think that it is hard to find vegan and cruelty-free products, but that is not true at all. There are now numerous brands that offer high-quality hair products that are free from all kinds of animal products, and these are not tested on animals either. Here’s how you can find the best vegan and cruelty-free hair products that are suitable for your hair type: 

  • Check the ingredients

Avoid hair products that contain biotin, silk amino acids, collagen, elastin, or keratin. All of these are usually derived from animals. Instead, look for plant-based or synthetic alternatives that give you the same nourishment and strengthen your hair without harming any living soul. 

  • Shop online for vegan, cruelty-free hair products

One of the easiest and most convenient ways to find vegan and cruelty-free hair products is to do a simple search on the internet. Sometimes you will end up finding brands that only sell vegan and cruelty-free products. You can also visit online beauty stores such as Salon Trusted. Just filter your search by hair type, product type, and select ‘vegan’ and ‘cruelty-free’.

  • Ask your local salons

The next time you go to your local salon, ask them to use vegan and cruelty-free products on you. Ask them where to buy these products. They will be happy to recommend products and may even earn commission through affiliate programs. 

Ingredients to Avoid and Ingredients to Look for 

When buying vegan and cruelty-free products, it’s important to look for products that are free from animal-derived ingredients. 

Some common animal-derived ingredients found in hair products include:

  • Keratin
  • Collagen
  • Beeswax
  • Honey

Instead, look for products that contain plant-based ingredients such as:

  • Coconut oil
  • Argan oil
  • Jojoba oil
  • Shea butter

The Benefits of Using Professional Products vs Using High Street Products


If you love your hair, you probably spend a lot of time and money on it?

Great hair and good hair days can clearly make a huge difference in how you feel about yourself so we are prepared to part with our cash to get more of those good hair days. It’s a great confidence booster afterall.

Here at Salon Trusted we want to help answer the commonly asked questions ‘am I using the right products for my hair?, ‘am I getting the best value hair products for my money?’

You may be tempted to save a few pounds by buying budget hair products from the high street, thinking that they are all the same. But, in reality, there is a huge difference between high street products and professional hair products. Let’s explore how using professional hair products can benefit you and your hair compared to using high street hair products, and we will look to explain why it is worth investing in salon-quality hair care to get the best results. 

The Value in Using Professional Hair Products 

The value behind using professional hair products is the special science and attention provided to the carefully chosen ingredients. These are products designed by experts who know how different ingredients affect the different types of hair. These high-quality ingredients are chosen and fused together to cater to all kinds of different hair and hair needs. These are tested rigorously and quality assured to give consistent and excellent results with each use.  

On the other hand, high street hair products in the UK are often mass-produced with synthetic and cheap ingredients. These can significantly damage your hair in the long run. And since these high street products are a one-size-fits-all solution, they may not be ideal for two people with different hair types. Sometimes, these products also contain harmful chemicals such as parabens, silicones, and sulphates. These chemicals can strip away your natural oils leaving your hair dry, prone to breaking, and can often leave coloured hair look faded. This also means that in order to get the same result every time, you may have to use more product with each use.

Professional hair products from us at Salon Trusted may seem expensive at first, but they work better and last longer than their high street counterparts. You usually need a small amount of these better quality products to get great results. Sometimes, you may not have to wash your hair as often either. Additionally, you get healthier, more manageable, and shinier hair every time.  Ultimately the professional products are far more trustworthy and do tend to lead to better results trusting you are using the product suited to your hair.

The Pro Products Significantly Protect Your Hair 

Professional hair care products are formulated specifically for a purpose. They are more durable in protecting your hair from any kind of factor that may damage or harm your hair. For example, if your hair is colour-treated, a high street hair product may not be effective in washing and preserving the colour of your hair. Whereas, a professional product will contain ingredients that help in protecting your hair from things like heat styling, UV rays, chlorine, and pollution. Apart from protection, these will also hydrate and nourish your hair and prevent it from being dull or faded. 

You will clearly see that some high street colour care products may claim to do all of this too but they often fail to deliver the desired result. They contain harsh detergents that can easily wash away your colour treatment quickly. Sometimes, they do not even contain any beneficial nutrients to keep your hair nutrient-rich and moisturised. Professional products will keep your hair vibrant, rich and beautiful. 

The Performance is Always Impeccable 

In terms of performance, professional hair products outshine their high street counterparts. These professional salon-grade products are guaranteed to deliver results because they contain high-grade ingredients catered to and customised to your specific hair type and need. In contrast, high street products are a gamble as you may never get the result you desired. 

Professional hair products are designed to address specific hair concerns and goals, such as curl definition, frizz control, volume control, shine enhancement, and much more. Their advanced formulas work well with your hair’s natural texture and structure to the best possible outcome. In contrast, high street hair products are generic and expected to work the same promised magic on any type of hair and desired style. Not only do high street products perform poorly, but they may also result in unwanted build ups or residue. These will make your hair look dull or greasy. 

Buy from Your Local Salons and Support Them 

After understanding why professional hair products are better than high street ones, the next step is to find trusted places to buy these. The answer is very simple; buy them from your local salon. You will end up getting high-quality professional products that suit your hair type and needs. You will also be greatly supporting your local salon through possible affiliate programs. The talented stylists will also offer precise and professional advice on how to use these products and work their magic on your hair. 

Get personalised service, professional advice, a friendly atmosphere, and the best professional products money can buy. Support your local salon and be an active part of the community. Show appreciation for the craft of your local stylists, and help them by buying professional products they can easily guide you on. It’s a win-win situation for everyone. At the end of it, you come out investing wisely and flaunting great healthy hair every time!

Our Guide to the Clean Beauty Movement


Our Guide to the Clean Beauty Movement

Clean beauty is a growing trend in the beauty industry that is predicted to be a major movement through 2022. However, the overall term is still somewhat murky because there is no industry standard for the category and so, there is room for interpretation. Here at Salon Trusted, we understand the main trait of clean beauty is that it is toxin-free; meaning there are no ingredients included that have been linked to harmful health effects.

With a growing interest in beauty that is natural and obtained from organic sources, more and more brands are producing beauty products which are cleaner for the skin, body and environment. Keep an eye out for labels that say ‘paraben, sulphate, and silicone’ free, as these are considered the three biggest toxins in beauty products today.


If you want to free yourself from toxins and chemical nasties, and introduce more eco-friendly beauty products into your life, take a look at our top 5 clean beauty products listed below.

He-Shi Rapid Edit Gift Box

This limited edition pack from He-Shi has everything you need to achieve a flawless tan in just 60 minutes. Thanks to the advanced time development accelerators, use the Rapid 1 Hour Liquid Tan to achieve a quick gorgeous glow, leave it on for 2-3 hours for a medium tan or even overnight for 8 hours to wake up with a deep bronzed look. This means you can tailor the colour of your tan depending on your personal preference, or the occasion! The pack also contains a travel size Face & Body Tanning Gel and Rapid 1 Hour Mousse, as well as a tanning mitt, all of which you can currently get your hands on for nearly half price at just £25.00. Every item in the gift box is paraben, alcohol, sulphate, palm oil and mineral oil free. If that wasn’t enough, it’s also vegan friendly, cruelty free and fully recyclable. What’re you waiting for?

Infuse My Colour Platinum Gift Bundle 2021

A favourite here at Salon Trusted HQ, Infuse My Colour is a range of professional colour enhancing products, that work to your individual hair colour to maintain, enhance, refresh, balance or treat your locks. Your faded colour no longer has to rely on harsh chemicals as this vegan and cruelty-free range has zero nasty chemicals, with no parabens, no silicones and no sulphates! There’s a whole range of colours to choose from like quartz, graphite, ruby or even platinum; perfect for maintaining the brightness of grey, white, pale blonde and highlighted hair.

Foamie Face Bar For All Skin Types Rose Oil and Vitamin B3

Foamie are on a mission to ‘Think Outside the Bottle’ with plant friendly solutions that smell incredible and leave a lasting effect on your skin and hair. What’s more, their products are free from toxins and chemical nasties. Their iconic ‘syndet’ is the base for a whole range of low-cost products from shampoo, conditioners, exfoliating shower bars and now their brand new face bars! The Rose Oil and Vitamin B3 face bar acts as a gentle cleanser, suitable for all skin types, that’ll give you the radiantly fresh look we’re all craving. It’s soap free, toxin free and is even pH optimised for an even gentler cleanse.

Biolage Keratindose Trio Pack

Many shampoos and conditioners contain sulphates that over-cleanse and dry out your scalp. By sticking to sulfate-free formulas, this will help to keep greasiness to a minimum and will cleanse your strands without stripping your scalp or hair of the oils that are needed for strong, healthy locks. All of the Biolage, by Matrix, shampoo and conditioners are sulfate-free to lock in hydration and moisture whilst leaving a refreshed and smooth finish. Our favourite? The Biolage Keratindose Pack, created with pro-keratin and silk to provide targeted reinforcement and moisture balance to over-processed hair. Regular use of the shampoo, conditioner and deep treatment will help to restore moisture and leave your hair up to 90% more nourished! Each of the 3 products in this value pack are sulphate free, p and silicone-free so be sure to snap this bundle up before it sells out!

Color Wow One Minute Transformation Cream 120ml

The experts at Colour Wow have created this anti-frizz cream to repair, nourish, protect, hydrate and style your hair. It really is a one-stop-shop! This cream can be used on dry hair, for any and all hair types, by simply applying a small amount through the ends, to leave your hair soft and silky without it feeling weighed down. Once applied, this sulphate and paraben free cream will continue to fight the frizz all day long.

New Year, New You: Our Top 10 Hair Trends of 2022


New Year, New You: Our Top 10 Hair Trends of 2022

Our hair sure has had a lot of ups and downs this year, from missing that salon look and feel to DIY hair cuts at home. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel, as the new year brings with it a whole host of inspiration, new products and new hairstyles so let’s look at our predicted trends for your tresses in 2022 and the best products to support your new do all year round.

Mid-length Bob Haircuts

A lot of us got sick of our unruly barnets during lockdown 1 and 2 and as a result, got a severe chop. Well, now hairstylists are saying that the mid-length 90s trend haircut is sticking around a little while longer, especially with celebrities like Kourtney Kardashian blazing the trail. It can also give thin hair a fuller, healthier appearance – result!

Our recommended product:

Hairdo Styling Pack Got a new short do and not sure how to style it? Get your hands on this four-product styling pack from Hairdo. You’ll find all you need to tame your tresses in this perfect pack: Hair Do Shine Hold Spray – amplifies your hair by infusing it with extra texture and definition, Hair Do Surf Spray – give yourself perfect beachy waves and texture with this lightweight formula, Hairdo Heat Protection Spray – keep frizzing hair at bay with this breakthrough formula which magically nourishes your damaged hair, and finally Hairdo Dry Shampoo – when you have no time to wash your hair but you can’t afford a bad hair day, reach for this breakthrough dry shampoo and get instant fresh hair and a clean scalp.

The Centre Parting

Gone are the days of the centre parting being a ‘nerdy’ hairstyle. It’s been elevated to cult status, sported by celebrities and influencers alike.

Our recommended products:

Leyton House Powder Power A lot of people avoid the middle parting as it can highlight greys or greasy roots. Enter, Powder Power. Give your roots an instant boost with this volumizing dry powder. This amazing non-tacky powder can help to create a tousled effect, be used to absorb unwanted oil or even restyle day-old hair.

Color Wow Root Cover Up There’s nothing worse than sporting a cute centre parting and noticing you need to hit the salon pronto, but you’re out of time. The Color Wow Root Cover Up is a magic powder that conceals grey roots and can even refresh highlights and thicken thinning hairlines. No more fussing with messy sprays – this powder and brush set allows for precise application. Unlike crayons and mascaras, the formula is not waxy or sticky making it easy to apply. Available in 8 shades from Platinum to Black.

90s Layers

Unless you were living under a rock, we all know what the ‘Rachel’ haircut was. Sported by Jennifer Anniston in the mid-90s by the eponymous Rachel from hit tv show ‘Friends’, this iconic hairstyle is great for adding volume, movement, and shape as it frames the face and can add texture to any tired style.

Our recommended product:

Color Wow EXTRA Mist-ical Shine Spray Turn heads with this shine spray to make your hair look sparkling and healthy. This ground-breaking product from Color Wow utilises the light-producing power of Mullein, a flower Phenom that traps invisible UV light and converts it into full-spectrum light – resulting in an intense glossy shine.

The Side Parting

There was heated debate among Millennials and Gen Z whether side partings were ‘out’ or worse, were branded ‘cheugy’. We can confirm that the side parting is back (if it ever really left) – especially with the aforementioned bob. Celebrity stylists predict that we’ll be seeing a lot more of the chic bob paired with a heavy side parting – perfect for anyone looking to emulate the classic Parisian style.

Our recommended products:

Insight Daily Use – Bodifying Dry Shampoo If you’re trying to cut down on washing your hair every day then Insight’s Daily Use dry shampoo may be the last dry shampoo you’ll ever need. This dry shampoo powder gets rid of oil and gives hair fullness and volume in seconds giving the appearance of thicker hair without the weight.

Total Results High Amplify Dry Shampoo Matrix’s dry shampoo works to absorb oil without weighing down the hair like traditional high street brands, making it the perfect dry shampoo spray for those with fine or thin hair.

CurlsOn the opposite end of the trend spectrum is big hair. In 2022 we are going to see a lot more curls, from beach waves to soft tight curls and thanks to Adele, big, bouncy, blowouts. Those blessed with natural curls – rejoice and embrace them – your in-vogue style is about to be the envy of even more people.

Our recommended products:

Love Your Curl Shampoo Give your curly hair some TLC with this specially designed cruelty-free and vegan formula created to reduce frizz, increase shine, and define curls and softer waves. Take it to the next level and partner with the Love Your Curl Conditioner which strengthens and repairs.


Babyliss Spectrum 19mm Wand Purple Mist Not blessed with natural curls? We may have the answer. With a midsize ceramic barrel, this wand is made to create beautiful, long-lasting defined curls with a silky, smooth finish. The ceramic coated 19mm extra-long barrel is perfect for those with longer hair and allows you complete control to create the look you desire whilst the choice of 25 different temperature settings up to 200°C mean you can protect your hair whilst creating a look that expresses your individuality.

Going ‘au naturel’

There’s been a sharp trend in consumers choosing natural, cruelty-free, vegan products and it looks like this trend is here to stay. Not only do we know that harsh chemicals can strip the hair of essential oils, they can also be tough on the scalp and can even cause flaking or dandruff. We’ve also seen a sharp rise in people foregoing washing their hair every day, allowing their hair to return to its natural state. Especially after lockdown and not being able to get to salons, many people embraced their natural hair colour or texture. Stylists expect that although people are returning to the salon, they’ll still be staying true to themselves and their hair.

Our recommended products:

Foamie Aloe You Vera Much Shampoo Bar  There are many Foamie bars available for those with thin hair, dry hair, coloured hair – there’s a bar for everyone – but the Aloe You Vera Much bar is a great place to start, especially if you have dry hair as a result of colouring. Not only is then Foamie bar 100% vegan, animal testing free, and free from silicones, dyes, sulphates, and nanoparticles – it’s environmentally friendly and holds up to 25 washes. This shampoo moisturizes and prevents the hair from drying out – perfect if you’re going a couple of days between hair washes.

Foamie Aloe You Vera Much Conditioner Bar With aloe vera and hydrolyzed oat proteins, this conditioner is the perfect companion to your shampoo bar. This Foamie conditioner bar prevents hair breakage and intensely moisturises, while the pH of 4.5 helps seal your hair. Like its companion, the Foamie conditioner bar contains 0% mineral oils, PEG, soap, parabens, silicones and liliale.

One-Dimensional Colour

Say goodbye to soft highlights, lowlights, and balayage in 2022. It looks like one-dimensional colour will be knocking those trends off the top shelf. Think soft and subtle chocolate browns, gingers, and warm honey colours. And good news for maintenance, as having one overall colour means upkeep is kept at a minimum.

Our recommended products:

Total Results 2021 Color Obsessed Trio With revolutionary Fade Guard technology, the Colour Obsessed Shampoo and Conditioner work together to inject moisture and hydration into your colour treated hair, whilst creating definition and boosting shine. Buy now and get a FREE Mini Miracle Creator 20; a multi-tasking treatment with 20 beautifying benefits for your hair!


Biolage 2021 Keratindose Duo Colouring your hair can mean it needs a little more TLC than usual. The Keratindose Shampoo and Conditioner is designed specially to treat dull, weak and damaged locks. Infused with pro-keratin, the formula restores your hair from roots to tip, sealing in the moisture and leaving your hair healthier, frizz-free and up to 90% more nourished after just one application!

Side Bangs

This is not a drill! 2022 will see the resurrection of the side bang, a staple in the 00s. Stylists predict that a slightly longer side-swept bang will be requested from the salon chair. It may be a throwback, but this style is perfect for those looking to test the water with bangs, without going under a full chop. The side bang offers a lot of versatility with the middle parting, being pinned, or simply being tucked behind the ear.

Our recommended product:

Loreal SteamPod 3.0 Straightening Tool – White Having a kink in our bangs is not what we’re looking for in the new year, but have no fear, Loreal is transforming the way we style our hair with these steam-powered straighteners. Using a continuous flow of high-pressure steam to hydrate each strand from the inside out without causing heat damage, the SteamPod also features a new rotative cord for hassle-free waves meaning no matter the style you choose, you’ll be left with smooth, soft, and natural-looking shiny hair.

Hair Contouring

And just like that… Sarah Jessica Parker is back on our screens and with that so is the classic ‘money piece’ hairstyle. Think, face-framing balayage strategically placed near the front giving an expensive, glamourous highlighted look. Well in 2022, we’re going to be going one step further with the ‘hair contour’. Instead of bold highlights framing the face, hair contouring sees clusters of highlights, using softer-contrast lighter shade around the face in a soft colour block. Sounds like a lot? Surprisingly this hair trend has relatively low maintenance and is perfect for those who are looking to brighten up their look and skin tone.

Our recommended product:

Color Wow Dream Coat 200ml Expensive looking hair needs the best aftercare, especially in the winter months. Color Wow’s Dream Coat is a lightweight, anti-humidity, anti-static hair care spray that can transform even the frizziest, unmanageable hair into smooth, hydrated and bouncy locks. This easy-to-use spray coats each strand of hair with an invisible, waterproofing layer that helps to control moisture levels for up to 3 washes.

Blondes (and Coppers) Have More Fun

We’ve seen a rise in the ‘expensive brunette’ trend which saw rich chocolate brown colours woven together with luscious blacks being adopted. Next year, however, this trend will evolve to include blondes and copper tones too. This means we’ll be seeing a lot of blondes including sumptuous strawberry and copper tones to add a three-dimensional aspect to their hair. This is also good news for traditional brunettes or darker as it will see lighter, warmer tones like toffee, amber and light brown sugar shades being included.

Our recommended products:

Infuse My Colour Copper Shampoo Gift Bundle This shampoo and conditioner bundle from infuse my. The Colour is designed to maintain the brightness of deep strawberry blonde, copper, auburn, and warm brown hair and is vegan and cruelty-free with no parabens, silicones or sulphates make it gentle on your hair.
