How many different ways can a Bob hairstyle be worn in Bristol?

How many different ways can a Bob hairstyle be worn in Bristol? Well, we’ve had a couple of clients asking this question recently, so we thought we’d write a blog post about it.

Bob hairstyling in central Bristol at Aidan Garlington Hair Design

A classic Bob haircut is often seen as one of the simplest but most stylish hairstyles for women visiting our Baldwin Street hair salon in central Bristol.

It’s effective, stylish, classic, and extremely versatile when worked well.

One of the emerging trends during 2019, and which our team of expert Bristol hairstylists expect to see continuing into 2020, is clients looking to get the same cut but to wear it in many different ways.

So, for example, with a Bob haircut from our team, there are many different ways in which the haircut can be styled to deliver different looks, such as:

Waves

Curls

Straight

Tousled

Night Glam

A hairstyle such as this can provide endless looks, as well as being simple to maintain with regular visits to your hair salon every six weeks or so.

A Bob haircut at our central Bristol studio costs from £36 ranging up to £49.50, for the cut and blow-dry, depending on the stylist working with you.

Full and free hair consultations are given to all of our hairdressing clients, and we also give comprehensive advice on the best products and styling equipment to utilise in maintaining a gorgeous Bob throughout the year.

So, if you’re thinking ‘New Year, New Hair’ why not consider trying a versatile cut and style that can give you a variety of daytime and evening looks?

What are the most common Winter hair problems in Bristol – and what to do about them

As the colder, wetter weather comes in many of our clients are asking our team of Baldwin Street hairdressers what are the most common Winter hair problems in Bristol – and what to do about them.

common winter hair problems bristol

One of the most-often seen issues at this time of year is dry and brittle hair. As moisture in the air increases in Winter months, dry and brittle hair requires extra attention.

Our central Bristol hairstylists recommend using a specialist shampoo and conditioner combo for dry hair, such as L’Oreal Serie Expert Nutrifyer.

By having a high-moisture content shampoo and conditioning treatment once a week, either in-salon or at home, your hair will be less dry and brittle.

An excellent at-home treatment to try is L’Oreal Source Sesame Oil Nourishing Balm – ask in-salon for further information on these products.

To reduce hair dehydration, it’s also advisable to use heat-protection products, as well as a minimal use of heated stylers during the Winter.

Another common Winter hair problem we see at our central Bristol salon is flyaway hair, due to static in the air from lower temperatures.

To avoid this, we recommend not using plastic combs while hair is dry, and only use frizz-free hair products during Winter months.

Our favourite hair products to reduce flyaway hair are Moroccan Oil Frizz Control and L’Oreal Absolut Repair Lipidium Blow Dry Cream. Using a light conditioning oil for the mid-lengths and tips will also combat static issues.

Dry scalp can be a Winter problem, as skin becomes drier in the cold weather.

A dry scalp can be itchy, flaky, and unhealthy for the hair. A soothing dermo-protector shampoo is the first line of defence, with our recommendation being L’Oreal Serie Expert Sensi Balance Shampoo.

Hot oil treatments can also be effective for dry scalps, as they lift and dissolve dead skin, improving the condition of the scalp, skin, and hair as a result.

A fourth Winter hair problem our central Bristol hairdressing team come across is a rise in split ends. The harsh weather at this time of year can cause real damage to hair integrity and strength, especially with unmanaged hair.

We recommend getting hair trimmed regularly, including dealing with ends and to prevent an increase in split ends. Maintenance cuts every 6-8 weeks.

Another common Winter hair issue our Baldwin Street salon stylists are seeing is the use of hats to keep the head warm – but whilst hair is still damp.

Hat Hair, as we call it, can cause damage to the roots if hair isn’t completely dried before going out and then putting on a Winter hat.

Make sure that the hair is completely cooled down after using any heated tools, and use a leave-in conditioner to lock in moisture. Once the hat has been removed, also flip hair upside down to revive it.

The entire team at our Baldwin Street hair salon are really excited this week, with the announcement that we’re now stocking Olaplex No. 6 Bond Smoother in Bristol for our lovely clients.

olaplex bond smoother bristol

Recently launched, Olaplex Number 6 Bond Smoother is a leave-in repairing styling crème that eliminates frizz, hydrates hair, and protects all hair types.

It strengthens, moisturises and speeds up blow-drying times, as well as eliminating frizz for up to 72 hours. It’s an amazing anti-frizz hair product.

It’s not designed to replace the hugely-popular Olaplex No.3 strength hair treatments in-salon, but the new No.6 anti-frizz treatment contains Vitamin E and coconut oil. Well-hydrated, smooth, silky hair is easier to manage.

This new anti-frizz hair treatment from Olaplex also contains a heat protection so it’s excellent for retaining moisture and protecting hair when blow drying. It is effective for heat up to 450 degrees, according to Olaplex.

We stock the full range of Olaplex hair products, hair protection products, anti-frizz treatments, and deep hair conditioning products in-salon, so just ask for further details when you next visit us.
