Looking for a Tom Hardy men’s haircut in Bristol? Read this!

We’ve had a few requests in recent weeks for a Tom Hardy style of men’s haircut in Bristol from our male hairdressing clients visiting our Baldwin Street hair salon.

Seeing as this British actor has such a strong and iconic look, our team of central Bristol hairdressers decided to focus on this particular hairstyle for men, seeing as we offer the full range of gents hairdressing services.

The picture above sporting one of Tom Hardy’s recent popular looks is a great example to recreate, and our male hairstyling clients have loved this one.

It’s a short and sharp clipper cut on the sides, leaving some length at the top to create a workable, texturized finish.

The Tom Hardy look was finished using clay wax, with British Hair texturizing powder and Beach Waves sea salt spray for a messy but defined men’s hairstyling look.

Pricing for this men’s haircut at our central Bristol hair salon ranges from £19 to £24 – just ask for further details when you visit us, or ring to book your appointment.

The second picture of Tom above shows a variation on the previous look. As the initial style grows out, the sides become softer and can be styled and worn pushed back. The top can then be left with a swept back, sleeker look.

We offer all of our men’s hairdressing clients a full and free hair consultation in central Bristol, so if you’re unsure which men’s haircut is right for you, simply ask one of the hairdressing team at our Baldwin Street hair salon and we’ll be happy to advise you further on the best men’s haircuts and products.

NEW Cloud Nine Curling Wand available at our central Bristol hair salon

The team of hairstylists are really excited this week at our central Bristol hair salon, with the launch of a new Cloud Nine Curling Wand for expert hair styling.

Cloud Nine Curling Wand Bristol

This industry-leading hair curling wand from Cloud Nine contains the same technology as hair irons, but with added safety and styling features.

One of the most important elements that Cloud Nine has introduced in their new Curling Wand is that of adjustable heat levels, on low medium and high heat settings.

The barrel size provides a good level of daily curling, whilst the heatproof bag that comes with the Curling Wand from Cloud Nine is worth £25 on its own.

When switched on, the Wand is ready to go within five seconds, and the adjustable heat settings give lower heat for less intense curling options.

It’s such a versatile hair curling and hair styling item, and Cloud Nine have really delivered the goods in the development of the Curling Wand.

The Curling Wand also comes with a paddle brush when bought at our central Bristol hair salon – this alone is worth £20 if bought separately in-salon.

Devised and launched by the brains behind the original GHD irons, the new Cloud Nine Curling Wand is available at our central Bristol hair salon for the introductory price of only £99, whilst stocks last.

This includes the heatproof bag worth £25 and the paddle brush worth £20, when you mention this blog post on purchasing the new Curling Wand.

Haircut of the month in Bristol – Cropped Hair for women this Summer

It’s that time of the month here at Aidan Garlington Hair Design when we dedicate our central Bristol hair salon blog to a specific haircut or hairstyle to showcase it for readers and clients.

And with Summer upon us, we’re going to review a popular hairstyle for our female clients – cropped hair for women this Summer in Bristol.

Bristol cropped hair for women at Aidan Garlington Hair Design

The essential element to this women’s hairstyle is to have it cropped on one side and longer on the other. It’s a dramatic, statement haircut and great for Summer weather, as it allows movement and air flow across the face and neck during warmer weather, whilst still retaining a strong signature look.

The women’s haircut in the pictures above was delivered using scissors and clippers, with the scissors creating texture and giving added softness overall.

The full head colour was from a bleach and tone treatment, followed by application of Fuschia colour from the Milkshake hair colouring brand.

The scissor cut at the side provides a strong look, whilst the cropping element leads into a longer level on the left from a graduated bob and a soft fringe.

This gorgeous example of cropped hair for women took approximately two and three quarter hours to deliver and costs from £93, depending on the stylists level providing the cut and colour.

Ask the hairstyling team at our Baldwin Street hair salon in central Bristol for further details when you make your booking. It’s a fantastic Summer look!
