Hair Product of the Month in central Bristol – L’Oreal Beach Waves

The team of hair stylists in central Bristol at Aidan Garlington Hair Design are taking a closer look at one of the best Summer hair products on the market this week – L’Oreal Beach Waves.

Hair product in Bristol L'Oreal Beach Waves at Aidan Garlington Hair Design

Beach Waves is a texturizing spray, and is classified in the salt spray group of hair products. It’s a perfect hair product to get that gritty tussled beach look.

It can be applied on dry or wet hair, and its main purpose is to add texture.

Classified as a finishing product, Beach Waves from L’Oreal is ideal for helping to create an outdoor natural look, favoured by many of our clients during the Summer months when the beach is a favourite place to be.

Suited best to medium and longer hair, Beach Waves is easy to apply – just spray in, and scruff up hair to get a tousled beach look for the rest of the day.

Although Beach Waves has been around for about two years, it remains one of the most popular Summer hair products in Bristol at our Baldwin Street hair salon.

Get yours this week for only £14.99 in-salon, and ask one of our talented central Bristol hair stylists for advice and tips on getting beach hair looks.

The L’Oreal Solar Sublime range of Summer hair treatments includes a Solar Spray product with UV protection, shampoo, and after-sun conditioner.

The Solar Sublime shampoo removes salt, minerals and chlorine to stop hair drying out and lightening existing hair colouring which might be in place.

This means that your hair colouring can last for longer in hotter weather, especially in the hotter drier Summer months.

The main purpose of the Solar Sublime range of Summer hair treatment products is to prevent hair from sun damage.

As a special offer exclusive to our Bristol hairdressing blog, we’re giving clients these fantastic L’Oreal hair products at an introductory price here.

Mention this blog post at our Baldwin Street hair salon in central Bristol, and get the shampoo for only £11.99, and the after-sun conditioner for £12.99.

The Solar Sublime shampoo and conditioner are excellent everyday products, and can make a huge difference in protecting your hair condition.

We also have other sun protection hair products and treatments available, and give our clients a free consultation on the best treatments to protect their hair in Summer months for their individual hair type. Ask for details.

Ask for details in-salon, and one of our team of stylists will be on hand to help you further and co-ordinate an informative and free Summer hair consultation session for you at our Baldwin Street hair salon.

Haircut of the Month at our central Bristol hair salon – Rainbow Roots

This week at Aidan Garlington Hair Design we’re focusing on another superb haircut from a recent client visit to our Baldwin Street hair salon in central Bristol.

And this month’s top hairstyle is becoming a firm favourite – Rainbow Roots.

Bristol Rainbow Roots hairstyle from Aidan Garlington Hair Design

It’s a popular fun haircut, and involves applying pre-lightener to lift colour. Our hair colouring experts in Bristol recommend L’Oreal Platinum as a great hair colouring product to lift colour as well as add tone for a Rainbow Roots cut.

After applying pre-lightener, different colours are added into roots, depending on what the client wants. These can be semi-permanent, traditional hair colouring products, or temporary Hair Chalks which typically wash out in 3-5 washes without the need for pre-lightening.

The toner colours are left in to process for around 20 minutes, then the hair is rinsed, cut and styled. It’s that simple.

Rainbow Roots in Bristol at Aidan Garlington Hair design

Semi-permanent Hair Chalks take about 20 minutes in the chair and cost from as little as £20, whilst full bleach and toning takes around two and a half hours with a cut and blowdry, and costs from £45.

Our central Bristol hair colourists also recommend using gentle shampoo for daily maintenance, which should see tonal colours staying in the hair and looking vivid for up to four weeks.

After that, we can apply a colour refresh if required, which only takes 30 minutes at our Baldwin Street hair salon.

The Rainbow Roots is a fantastic hairstyle for an Undercut colour, which can also be covered up for work or professional purposes. It’s also a subtle hair colour, and our favourites at the moment are pinks and purples.

We also offer all clients a full and free hair consultation, to ensure that your requirements are fully met beforehand. Book yours today.

L'Oreal Vitamino Colour hair product at central Bristol hair satudio Aidan Garlington Hair Design

The Vitamino Colour hair product range available at our central Bristol hair studio is all about hair colour protection.

The shampoo and conditioner, for example, are pH balanced and highly concentrated. These hair colour protection treatments provide high-quality hair care for any hair colour and any hair style.

The Vitamino Colour range help to protect hair colour radiance and boost hair colour intensity. The entire hair product range works hard to gently eradicate residues in the hair, as well as being designed specifically for coloured hair.

L’Oreal classify the Vitamino Colour range as their best hair colour radiance protection products available, and they are firm favourites in our hair salon.

The range has recently been extended, to include anti-oxidant properties.

Haircut of the month at our Baldwin Street Bristol hair salon – soft balayage

The team of hairstylists and hairdressers at Aidan Garlington Hair Design are this week taking a closer look at one of the most popular hairstyles for this time of year at our Baldwin Street hair salon in central Bristol – a soft balayage.

Bristol hair salon soft balayage at Aidan Garlington Hair Design

We begin all of our haircuts and hairstyling services with a full and free hair consultation.

In essence, a soft balayage is a softer and gentler transition from the roots to ends than a full head hair colouring service, and is one of the seasonal favourites with many of our long-standing hairdressing clients in central Bristol.

Although a soft balayage is still a full head hair colouring service, it’s classified as a tonal change rather than a depth-based hair colour.

It’s not a heavily-bleached service, and delivers a lighter, sun-kissed look with lightened colour applied to the ends and then towel-dried.

We use L’Oreal Colour products at our central Bristol hair studio, and for a soft balayage, we apply semi-permanent colour on the roots, a pre-lightener on the ends, plus a colour toner to finish.

The hair is then cut, styled and blow-dried to give a gorgeous soft balayage, as seen in the above example taken in-salon last week.

This stunning seasonal Spring hairstyle takes between two and a half to three hairs in the chair, with prices ranging from £99 to £123, depending on the stylist delivering this hair colouring service to the client. Ask for further details.

To see the full range of soft balayage, haircare, hair treatments, hairdressing, hair styling, hair colouring, and hair extensions we offer, please get in touch here.

The example of gents hairdressing above from our central Bristol hair salon highlights the expert men’s hairdressing services we offer for male clients.

The men’s haircut started with a shampoo and condition, towel-dried, then it was clipper cut at the back and sides, blended into the top and textured.

It delivers a classic, broken up look as favoured by Hollywood star Tom Hardy, and remains one of the most popular gents haircuts in Bristol we give.

We also recommend British Hair products, and this particular men’s haircut benefited from British Hair Fibre being applied.

This gave the hair texture and hold, and was applied at the end.

British Hair Paste is also a popular option with male clients visiting our Baldwin Street hair salon in central Bristol, as it gives a natural look and hold.

The men’s haircut above was completed at our central Bristol hair salon in 30 minutes with prices starting from £19.50 and going up to £24, depending on the stylist delivering the service. Ask in-salon for further details when booking.

We also offer all of our male clients a full and free hair consultation in-salon.

British Hair Fibre is a unisex hair product available at our Baldwin Street hair studio, and it’s a versatile addition to any hair care and hairstyling regime.

British Hair Fibre is a fantastic hair product for adding texture and hold, and is easy to apply on dry hair. The medium hold level is perfect for shorter hair.

Simply apply to hands and work into the hair, it can be washed out and is a wonderful daily usage styling product. The hair stylists at our central Bristol hair salon have been getting amazing feedback from clients recently.

It provides everyday hold levels, and is best suited for short hair – but this can be for guys or girls. We love it, and it makes a great impact on unisex hair too.
