Spring hair colour trends from our Bristol hairdressers

The lighter, brighter days are with us, and that means it is time to share the Spring hair colour trends from our Bristol hairdressers.

best Summer hairstyles Bristol 2019

As the weather gets hotter and warmer, traditionally hair colours move towards lighter tones and fresh new tones including blonde and pastel shades.

Some of the Spring hair colour trends our Bristol hairdressers think will be ones to watch in 2022 include:

Monroe Blonde

This has roared back into vogue this year, with celebrities helping to push it into the spotlight once more.

Monroe Blonde is a fluffy, retro shade of blonde which is old Hollywood, full of neutral non-brassy lightness. It’s airy, light and just right for Spring in Bristol.

Nectar Blonde

This honey blonde hair colour delivers a super gold tone which catches the sun superbly, as well as provides gloss and shine.

Nectar Blonde is a specific shade of blonde that contains a yellow-gold tone.

Mahogany Blonde

The Mahogany Blonde is an earthier version of a Strawberry Blonde, with a coper and gold element finished off with a touch of rose.

It is a warm and flattering hair colour suiting many skin tones and the copper shade will prove to be popular this Spring.

Sherbet Blonde

Pastel hair colours are always popular in Spring, and the Sherbet Blonde is no exception.

Sherbet hair can be any pastel colour and works well on hair already blonde. We recommend candyfloss, pink, soft peach and lavender.

We offer a full and free hair colour consultation to all clients and have a huge number of Spring hair colour options for clients to choose from.

What are the most popular Spring hairstyles in Bristol for 2022?

The season has changed and many clients visiting Aidan Garlington Hair Design are asking us for advice on the most popular Spring hairstyles in Bristol for 2022.

free hair care resources Bristol hairdressers

Our Baldwin Street hairdressers have a selection of Spring hairstyles that are proving popular for 2022, including:

Wet Waves

This seasonal style is for long hair and is styled in an unstructured way with a natural wave.

Blunt lines are softened with the focus being on natural waves in the hair. Some clients may consider hair extensions to get an extra element of length.

A good quality curling tong can provide a curl boost in the hair to deliver fluffy elongated waves.

Minimalist Hair

This Spring hairstyle is perfect for clients with fine, thin hair.

Minimalist Hair centres upon loose, unstructured hair with thinner textured ends and a sleek simple finish. It works especially well with sharp parting.

Sometimes referred to as ‘barely there hair’ this look is all about simplicity with subtle, fine woven high or low lights depending on the natural hair colour.

Bang Bob

The Bang Bob is a new take on the French Bob but with an extra focus on the fringe area.

Layers are kept to a minimum with a sharp right angle connecting the fringe and bob length. The shorter the fringe, the bolder the end result on this look.

The Bang Bob is a strong hairstyle, and works equally well blow-dried and straightened, or left to dry naturally.

Mixie

A Spring hairstyle that is all about layers, with the fusion of a Mullet and a Pixie Cut.

An alternative style, it’s sharp and sassy and perfect for a fresh new Spring look. The central element is a choppy, textured all-over layered cut.

Length is left around the neck to work in the Mullet style, with a similar length framing the face. This is going to be a very popular look this Spring.

Botox Hair

This Spring style works on any hair length longer than the chin and is a simple but stunning look.

All the hair is swept up into a tight bun sitting on the crown of the head. Hair is combed back tightly in a line that continues from the cheekbones to give a snatched (or botoxed) look.

Botox Hair is a sleek and sharp style that requires strong hold styling gel to comb the hair up and back, then secured with a hair elastic at the crown.

Advice on hair restyling in 2022 from our Bristol hairdressers

We’ve been getting clients asking for advice on hair restyling in 2022 from our Bristol hairdressers.

hair restyling 2022 bristol

With any hair restyling service at our Baldwin Street salon, client hair consultation is the key element.

Clients often bring pictures with them on their phones or from magazines, and we also look at images on Google, Pinterest and Instagram with clients.

Hair restyling is all about the suitability of a client’s hair to a particular style. We will factor in the client’s hair length, condition, thickness and colour options.

A typical hair restyle at our central Bristol salon will include shampoo and dry, cut, styled and fully personalised for each client.

A hair restyle can also include a new style, a new hair colour, or sometimes a full hair colour correction service.

When it comes to restyling hair length, we might advise taking off length or just creating a choppy funky new look in the existing hair’s length.

Hair colouring for a restyle can include chunkier highlights, a seasonal balayage, or a colour correction to create completely new hair colour.

All hair colour correction services will require a test piece of the client’s hair to confirm that a colour correction service will be appropriate for their hair.

Our central Bristol hairdressers give free hair consultations to all clients, with prices confirmed at the time. This is standard with our bespoke hair services.

As a rough guideline, our hair restyling services in Bristol start from:

Cut & blowdry £49.50

Toner over hair £25

Highlights £25

Full hair colour change £150

Clients understand that there are different prices for different services when it comes to a hair restyle, and the above are guidelines only.

We also provide expert inputs on clients’ face shape and hair textures during hair consultations, to ensure they get the very best bespoke look for them.

It’s our job to refine a client’s vision to ensure that they get the best possible look.

We will also ask clients how long they want to spend time daily on maintaining and styling their hair. The Haircare regime is also an important consideration.

We give free advice on the merits of long and short hairstyles, so each client visiting us for a hair restyling service can go for their favourite hair choice.

If you’d like more information about the hair restyling service available at our central Bristol hair salon, please feel free to get in touch with us here.

What are the 2022 hair trends to watch in Bristol?

The New Year is here, and with it are some exciting and new 2022 hair trends to watch out for in Bristol.

Spring hairstyles in Bristol

Our Baldwin Street hairstylists in central Bristol have some of the hottest hairstyles and hair trends to keep an eye out for in January and beyond.

If you’re unsure where to take your New Year hairstyling for 2022, we also provide a full and free hair consultation for all of our clients, in a Covid-safe salon environment.

Some of the hottest hair trends in Bristol for 2022 will include:

Mid-Length Bob

This is longer than a short bob but shorter than a long bob.

It falls above the shoulder and below the chin and is a low-maintenance hit for 2022. In essence, it is a mid-length blunt 90s-style bob.

Layered Haircut

Hair trends for 2022 in Bristol aren’t going to be all about blunt ends.

90s layered haircuts are making a comeback.

A layered haircut is great for adding volume, movement and shape as well as framing the face.

Natural-looking hair

Effortless hairstyling with natural colour will become popular in 2022.

Less is more, and natural hairstyles with relaxed colours and elevated gloss or a natural highlight will be in demand with clients in Bristol hair salons.

Make sure you go for a look and colour that suit your face shape and skin tone.

Hair extensions for 2022

We think another big hair trend for clients in 2022 will be hair extensions.

Hair typically only grows around half an inch per month, so professional hair extensions can give a stunning long length.

Long lengths will be a big hit, and we predict between 17-21 inches will be the sweet spot for many clients in Bristol. This reaches between the chest and waist.

Check out the latest Autumn hair trends in Bristol for 2021

Our Baldwin Street hairdressers have been looking at the latest Autumn hair trends in Bristol for 2021, so we thought it would be good to dedicate a blog post to the subject.

popular bristol hairstyles

Autumn hair trends in Bristol is a topic many of our clients have been asking us about recently. It’s going to be a season of gorgeous hairstyles for 2021.

We’ve already written about the hottest Autumn hair colours for this year, and some of our top Autumn hairstyle predictions include:

Classic Bob

The humble but classic Bob is an Autumn hairstyle favourite in Bristol in one form or another, and 2021 will be no different when it comes to seeing this.

There will be a new lease of life for the Classic Bob in Bristol for Autumn.

We predict that the chunkier box Bob will reign supreme this year, so ask one of our Bristol hairdressing team about the best Bob hairstyle for your face.

Fabulous Fringes

This year has seen huge demand for fringes, and our central Bristol hairstylists don’t envisage Bangs disappearing during the Autumn months.

Choppy and strong fringes are going to be popular in Bristol over the remainder of 2021, and we expect to see blunt, side-swept styles aplenty.

Ask the team at our Baldwin Street salon about styling for fringes on your next visit.

Wet-Look Waves

This simple but glamourous autumn hairstyle will be hot for 2021 in Bristol.

Wet-Look Waves are a perfect hairstyle for attending special events and looking effortlessly cool. Our central Bristol hairstylists love this look.

Mixing a hair shine and shine cream will help to create a stunning Wet-Look Wave. Ask in-salon for further information on the best products to use.

Marvellous Mullets

The Mullet was possibly one of the most talked-about hairstyles of 2021, and we expect to see seasonal variations on this theme for Autumn.

A good Autumn Mullet will be styled and dried to protect the hair against the ravages of Autumn weather, rather than the popular shaggy and textured Mullets of the Summer months.

Ask the stylists at our central Bristol hair studio for advice on an Autumn Mullet.

What are the most popular Autumn hair colours in Bristol for 2021?

The Summer is officially over, and here at Aidan Garlington Hair Design, we’ve had a number of clients asking our team of Baldwin Street hairstylists what are the most popular Autumn hair colours in Bristol for 2021.

copper red hair colouring Bristol 2020

October through to January has traditionally been a time when Autumn hair colours in Bristol lean towards copper reds, deep browns and colour-mixed brunettes.

For the upcoming season, our Baldwin Street hair colouring team in Bristol predict the following top Autumnal hair colours will be the most popular:

Copper Red

This is a strong and sassy seasonal hair colour for Autumn, and our Bristol clients love the Copper Reds our hair colourists deliver this look.

Copper and Red were really hot Autumn hair colours in 2020 on their own, and we expect both colours to blend together beautifully this year.

Bronde

Blonde and brown together might sound strange at first, but this is a really strong Autumn hair colour, and clients will love the result when they see it.

Bronde provides a subtle lifting or darkening (as required depending on the client’s natural hair colour) as well as being a low-maintenance hair colour.

Espresso Brunette

This is a classy Autumn hair colour and has been made popular recently by Meghan Markle. It gives a subtle seasonal shine with depth and warmth.

After years of seeing balayage and blonde dominating, many brunettes are going with a simple but beautiful rich, deep espresso brown.

Chocolate Brown

Autumn hair colours that remain popular will always include some form of Chocolate Brown. and 2021 is no different at our Bristol hair studio.

This year, clients wanting to keep their seasonal hair colouring low-key but add a little sparkle to a brunette base colour will opt for this stunning look.

We request that all clients complete a skin patch test 48 hours before any hair colouring service at our Baldwin Street salon, and we continue to follow all requirements recommended by the Government before the end of the last lockdown, to ensure we provide clients with a Covid-safe salon in Bristol.
