Perfect Spring hairstyle? Try an Inverted Layered Haircut in Bristol

The start of Spring always sees clients asking us for hairstyle ideas and hairdressing inspiration. One of our seasonal favourites to try is an Inverted Layered Haircut at our central Bristol hair salon.

Inverted Layered Haircut in Bristol

A classic Inverted Layered Haircut at our Baldwin Street hair studio always begins with a full and free client hair consultation, to ensure that the client is completely happy with our suggested seasonal hairstyling for Spring.

Following the hair consultation, an Inverted Layered Haircut begins with cutting the baseline in, and to take it shorter, our hairstylist would invert layers.

The point of this hairstyle is to give more movement, texture and body.

The layering of the hair also helps to reduce the hair weight and length, and reduced the remaining hair being pulled down as a result.

This popular hairstyle for Spring from our central Bristol hairdressers prevents drab weighty hair, eliminates a weighed-down look for clients’ hair, and also helps to deliver a simple, classic and stunning hairstyle for the new season.

An Inverted Layered Haircut at our central Bristol hair salon costs either £33, £39.50 or £46.50, depending on the level of hairstylist delivering the service. The examples pictured above all took an hour, including a cut and blow dry.

Ask in-salon for more details when you make your booking with us, and remember that a new seasonal hairstyle is only an appointment away!

Bristol hairdressers give advice on hair straighteners, hair tongs and hair curling wands

Some of our clients have been asking the team of Bristol hairdressers at Aidan Garlington Hair Design for advice on using hair straighteners, hair tongs and hair curling wands.

Using the right type of hair curling or hair straightening equipment for different hair types is really important to maintain hair integrity and healthy, well-conditioned hair, so we’ve decided to write a full blog post on this topic.

Starting with hair straighteners above, using this hairstyling equipment on jaw to shoulder-length hair will give a more defined, tighter look that last well.

The tightness of hair curls depends on the temperature of the straighteners being used, so the hotter the tool, the tighter the hair curl will be.

Using hair straighteners on shoulder-length hair and longer will give a loose and natural look, as the weight of the hair will pull curls down. Hair curls can be made tighter with application of more heat, but this needs to be done carefully and with heat defending hair conditioning products in place first.

Hair curling wands are really flexible and can be used on any hair length, providing curls which are natural. The wider barrel length on curling wands also enables a multi-texture curl because it is wider at the top then gradually gets smaller at the bottom of the hair curling wand, like those above.

This helps to give a quick and workable curl using professional curl wands.

The third preferred piece of hairstyling equipment from our central Bristol hairdressers are hair tongs as seen above, and these usually have a small barrel size the whole length down.

Hair tongs give flexibility as barrel sizes are different on different tongs – so, for example, if you want a tight corkscrew curl effect, simply choose a small barrel hair tong. For a natural beach wave style, use a medium to large barrel.

Hair tongs can be used on and hair type and length, and are a great option.
