GENDER NEUTRAL PRICING
We believe that hair has no gender and is an important tool in everyone’s self-expression. In our team’s eyes everyone is equal, and we bring that philosophy to life in a practical and transparent way through our gender-neutral pricing. All haircuts at Bimbo’s Hair are priced on the amount of time taken, and the level of your chosen stylist.
Not only do we believe that this is a fairer and more inclusive way of doing things, we also feel it’s necessary because of how hair trends are changing.
It’s common in our salon to have women with short crops and men with longer hair. Some shorter haircuts can often require more time, skill and precision than longer haircuts.
At Bimbo’s Hair we offer complimentary consultations to all clients to ensure you are happy with the service, stylist and price before you book your appointment.
From the 12th of April our Service names will have no reference to gender. This mainly affects our Cutting services.
Our “Ladies Cut” and “Men’s Cut” service will be discontinued.
You will instead be able to choose from the following services:

Evo partner with organisations like green circle salons so that together we can help create a more sustainable professional haircare industry.
Bimbo's is a proud member of Green Salon Collective.
Green Salon Collective is founded by environmental experts, hairdressers & eco campaigners, GREEN SALON COLLECTIVE is the original authority on salon sustainability throughout the UK and Ireland wide.
They facilitate salon sustainability by recycling the unrecyclable from our salon, such as hair, used colour tubes and foil, excess colour and so much more. For example we send your hair to the Green Salon Collective and they turn your hair into a hair boom. A hair boom is a cotton or nylon tube, tightly packed with any length and colour of hair. These booms, when placed in either water or on the shores of beaches will stop the oil from spreading, saving wildlife and the natural landscape.
Profits raised from selling commodities are also recylced, Green Salon Collective donate profits to a number of charities.
Working alongside Ellgia Recycling in Ely, our waste becomes 100% landfill avoidance. Our waste is sorted, segregated and recycled, re-used as waste-to-energy RDF (refuse-derived fuel), or composted.
Bimbo's Hair in Bury St Edmunds use 100% biodegradable disposable towels that are made from 100% natural sustainable fibres. Not only are they hygienic, the towels save water consumption and time and can be composted. This means you can take your towel home with you to use in your garden or for cleaning if you so choose. Gone are the days of running around after dry towels.
Energy efficiency: All our lights are fitted with energy efficient LED bulbs.
Our basins are fitted with EcoHeads shower heads which double the water pressure while reducing water and energy usage by up to 65%. The mineral stones remove sediment, rust, and sand softening the water giving you a smoother and silkier finish.
Even our toilet paper is sustainable! We stock Who Gives a Crap toilet paper. Good for your bum. Great for the world. 50% off their profits are donated to build toilets.
