NEW L’Oreal Transformers hair products available in Bristol

Our Baldwin Street hairdressers have been using L’Oreal products for years now, and we’re pleased to announce two new products in the L’Oreal Transformers range are now available in Bristol.

L'Oreal Transformers hair products Bristol

The two new Transformers products are both designed to give hair extra texture and definition, and are part of the Tecni Art hair product range.

L’Oreal Transformer Lotion is a transforming liquid to paste hair product, that is easy to use and gives instant results.

Simply massage into the hands, and pull apart to stretch the fibres. Run it through the hair to boost texture, and apply to dry or damp hair.

Transformer Lotion works equally well on either short or long hair, and gives limitless looks for controlled texture of hair during Summer months.

This new hair conditioning and hairstyling product costs £14.99 in-salon.

L’Oreal Transformer Gel is a super-versatile gel-to-foam hairstyling product which can be used on all hair types to create a huge number of new looks.

It’s the perfect hairstyling product for volume, as well as enhancing short curls and bouncy curls. It provides light control and creates workable definition.

Alternatively, Transformers Gel can be worked into a mousse to generate volume and body for the entire hairstyle, as needed.

To apply to dry hair, put a small amount into hands as a gel and work through short curls for control and movement. It can create definition without stiffness.

To apply to wet hair, put into hands and gently work the gel into a foam, then distribute from the roots to the lengths for added volume and body all over.

This fantastic new hair product is also £14.99 in-salon whilst stocks last.

What’s the most popular hairstyle in Bristol this Spring?

Warmer weather is here, and a number of clients have been asking our Baldwin Street hairdressers what’s the top hairstyle in Bristol this Spring?

most popular hairstyle Bristol Spring

Our prediction for this season will be short blunt bobs with texturized long layers to add movement and body, as the gorgeous example above shows.

It’s a simple stylish look that is low maintenance and perfect for Spring and Summer months alike. A number of celebrities are sporting this fab look now.

Spring hairstyles in Bristol 2019

We blogged last year about the Classic Bob hairstyle being one of the hairstyles to watch out for – read all about it here – and it’s great to see a variation of this quality cut remaining popular in 2019, too.

It’s a clean, crisp and superb seasonal look that will turn heads in Bristol.

Below are two recent examples in-salon where clients have opted for short blunt bobs with gorgeous final looks. Both clients loved their Spring styles!

Perfect Spring haircut in Bristol – Hair Lightening with Olaplex

Clients visiting our Baldwin Street salon have been asking for the perfect Spring haircut in Bristol – and our answer for 2019 is Hair Lightening with Olaplex hair treatment.

Bristol hair lightening Olaplex

Spring is only weeks away, and it’s a great time of year to consider lightening hair whilst also conditioning and treating it in preparation for warmer weather, to reduce sun damage, dry hair issues, as well as looking great for Spring.

The client example above last week is a great showcase for our Bristol hair lightening and Olaplex hair treatment.

The client came into the salon with very long hair, and asked for us to cut the majority of the length off before starting the hair colour service.

The cut hair was foiled in diagonal sections, with a two-inch gap in colour application to the scalp. Although a classic Balayage hair colour is usually applied freehand, we used foils as the client wanted the hair to be as light as possible. The heat from the foils also helped the hair colour to lift further.

Once the hair colour had lifted to the client’s required lighter shade, we toned it with a light ash toner, then cut off another two inches to reach Bob length.

Olaplex hair treatment was used in the bleach and toner, to re-build hair bonds that can be broken down in the hair colouring process. We recommend using Olaplex with every hair lightening service at our Bristol hair salon, as it helps to retain and strengthen the integrity of hair.

The hair was then blow-dried smooth, then curled with a Cloud Nine Styler to create gorgeous big loose curls for the client.

The above cut, hair colouring and Olaplex hair treatment service usually takes between 3-4 hours, and costs from £142.50, depending on the stylist.

This cut and colour would, of course, be cheaper without an Olaplex treatment and the application of an extra toner, as this client requested.

We also recommended that the client uses silver shampoo to ensure the lighter hair colouring stays bright, as well as cancelling out any brassy tones that may develop once the toner starts to wash out.

We also provided a Blondifier resurfacing and illuminating hair masque to use as a conditioner – this has been developed specifically for blonde hair, and is a superb hair conditioning product for adding in moisture removed by bleach.

The client also had a full and free hair consultation with one of our expert hair colourists in Bristol before proceeding with this transformational hairstyling.
