The Hello Bleach Bib 2.0 - 4 Ways to Use the Hello Bleach Bib 2.0

The Hello Bleach Bib 2.0 is very close to our hearts. As the first Hello Bleach and our hero product, it captured the imaginations of hairdressers across the globe who had been needing a salon tool like this in the salon to help make things more seamless, saving time while keeping things cleaner and more efficient. Let us explain how below...

The Hello Bleach Bib 2.0 does away with the need for single-use/ disposable plastic capes, and saves you time and effort in the cleanup. But efficient and easy dye jobs aren’t the only thing The Bib has mastered. Eco hairdressers have been our best testers, putting The Bib to work day after day to find four unique ways it can be used.

Without further ado, here are some unexpected ways The Hello Bleach Bib 2.0 can assist you…



1. For Bowlayage

Who is a fan of basin balayage or bowlayage? It’s quick, easy and always achieves incredible results. But no hairdresser wants to be cling wrapping the bowl day in day out! We have an amazing alternative for you. Hairdressers are now using The Bib to replace cling wrapping the sink. Not only does this provide a much stronger surface to work on and saves you so much time to get the perfect underlay, but it also saves miles upon miles of cling wrap from landfill. 






2. For Balayage, Tip Outs, Dyes and Freestyle work 

If you’re getting creative with a client in the chair, The Hello Bleach Bib 2.0 is there to help. With a durable design that prioritises longevity, spillage and seepage is all but impossible. All you need to think about is letting your creative colouring flow, and The Hello Bleach Bib 2.0 will do the rest. Did you know you can also use The Bib instead of balayage boards? You simply hold your hand behind the long panel at the back and canvas is ready, so get going on that hair artistry, maestro. Perfect for tip-outs, freehand work, wet balayage, dry painting, foiling for lived-in blondes anything you need without the bleach stains, without the mess, without fuss and keeping it seamless and easy for you. Plus it gives your salon a boujee, up market feel! 





3. As a Cutting Cape

If you don’t want to be throwing hair cutting capes around clients like some kind of magician, the Hello Bleach Bib has got you covered. As it’s slightly weighted, The Bib is perfect for wet work without any seepage to customers’ clothin and also dry cutting. Not to mention, our durable TPU material. It makes the best, salon-proof hairdressing cape for any and all cutting work, with slits on the sides and a double breasted design it fits all shapes and sizes, can be fitted to be looser or tighter fitting around the neck and allows freedom of movement for clients to be able to reach for their phones, magazines or handbags. It's seriously the ultimate salon side-kick you won't believe you ever worked without while hairdressing.






4. As a Protectant For Your Salon Furniture

Beautiful salon furniture is often expensive to clean and replace, so stains and damage must be avoided at all costs. But if you’re worrying about where you’re putting your tools and how you’re moving, you’re paying less attention to your work. Well, why not place The Bib over your salon chairs and other furniture? You won’t need to worry about pesky stains and can focus on your client and their hair. Simply wash The Bib afterwards and it’s good to go again and again.


The best thing about this tool is it's helping salons step away from the use of single use plastics like disposable plastic capes and even cling wrap over the sink for basin balayage helping salons move closer towards sustainability and reducing the plastic burden on the planet. 



Australia faces a pressing crisis as an overwhelming 74 million tonnes of waste is generated each year, with over 40% ending up in landfills. Plastic waste makes up 2.5 million tonnes of which only 9% was sent for recycling (227,000 tonnes), while 84% of this was sent to landfill (2.1 tonnes).

This reality raises a red flag for both our well-being in Australia and the planet's sustainability.

Recycling efforts are falling short of their target, leaving a substantial amount of waste unrecycled and stockpiled, sometimes even posing environmental and fire hazards. Australia's ambitious goal of achieving an 80% resource recovery rate by 2030 seems increasingly out of reach.

The waste issue is exacerbated by Australia's reliance on exporting waste overseas, which, coupled with recycling constraints and low demand, results in recyclable materials still ultimately being buried in landfills. But there's hope on the horizon.

Innovative solutions, such as the Hello Bleach Bib 2.0 and the Sustainable Hardware Collection, are emerging to tackle this crisis head-on alongside many other more sustainably focused companies finding inventive ways to curb our carbon footprint. And by supporting sustainably focused businesses you're making an immense impact! The Hello Bleach bib directly helps to reduce the need for disposable plastics like capes and cling wrap, helping eco-conscious salons with a sustainable alternative to these problem like soft plastics that are hard to recycle and typically just end up in landfills! These soft plastics choke our waterways, don't break down and often end up as microplastics often invading our soil and we even ingest it!  Hello Bleach has also found a way to reuse our hard plastic and recycle PP into a collection of Sustainable Hardware for hairdressers which as a big picture is contributing to a circular economy and ultimately by choosing our products you're effectively diverting discarded plastics from landfill.
