At Bob Hair, just off bustling Toorak Road, things are done a little differently. For starters, all products are zero-waste and eco-friendly, with an enduring focus on ethical and sustainably-sourced materials. This careful and considered approach extends to the dreamy, light-filled salon space, which feels more airy and relaxed than your typical hairdresser.

"What we are doing at Bob is simplifying healthy and sustainable living, without it coming at the cost of a great cut and colour," founder and director Charlotte Archer says. "We love sharing knowledge with women and showing them that colouring their hair doesn't need to be an eye-watering, headache-inducing experience."

Here, you're invited to reconnect with your best self (and your best-ever hair), free from parabens, ammonia, sulphites and waste. Hair trimmings are repurposed to help soak up oil spills in the Great Barrier Reef, while composting and repurposing means Bob Hair is one of Melbourne's rare zero-waste salons.

Yet, there's no compromise when it comes to style. The boutique salon offers the full spectrum of cutting, blow-drying, colouring and treatment services, with cuts for women starting from $130 and for men from $85 — each including a full personalised consultation. Alongside your usual cuts and blows, Bob Hair also offers gentle all-natural colouring which leads to long-lasting results.

Escape to this sustainable paradise the next time you're looking for a refresh that's better for you and the environment. Your hair will thank you for it.
