Botaniq is one of the natural brands Bob use in their regular treatments, and of course, all products are cruelty free and made with natural ingredients. To make these eco-practices sustainable for the salon too, a ‘green fee’ of $3 is added on to every bill; a small cost that customers are always more than happy to contribute.
Customers are treated with more care than you’ll find in other salons, and I left floating on a cloud. ‘Zen time’ involves five minutes in the chair between hair washing, with a hot towel over your hair, and shade covering your eyes. In a face paced world, ‘zen time’ is crucial, but we often forget to initiate it ourselves. Those five minutes were the icing on the cake for my treatment.
More than a salon
Bob Melbourne don’t stop at hair. They encourage their clients to embrace a holistic healthy life-style. Amanda and Charlotte run yoga classes, meditation sessions, and workshops in their salon space out of salon hours.
“Because being natural is not skin deep, our salon supports a plethora of green initiatives that ensure our work does not hurt our earth.”
In an industry full of waste, over consumption, and mindlessness, Bob Melbourne have gone the extra mile in creating a space where trust is built, the planet is honoured, and women are left looking and feeling their natural best!
