Winter Haircare hints and top hair treatments in central Bristol

The team of hairstylists at Aidan Garlington Hair Design are passing on the best Winter haircare hints and top haircare treatments in central Bristol this week.

At this time of year, a number of factors such as frosty weather, wet and windy storms, central heating damage and other extreme hot and cold elements can cause haircare to become a top priority for many clients.

And we’ve got some fantastic, fast and frizz-free Winter haircare tips and hair treatments available from our Baldwin Street hair salon to specifically deal with the worst of the weather.

One of the best Winter haircare treatments we offer is a hair mask. This thorough hair treatment includes a shampoo, towel dry, then head massage and placing under heat, ideally.

Then we add our new British Hair revitalising hair product, leave in for 10 minutes and rinse out. Hair is then cut and styled, giving an intensive hydration treatment at our central Bristol hair studio, as well as a hairstyle.

We also provide hair treatments from L’Oreal, which is a more prescriptive approach for our clients. This is great for chemically-damaged hair, or hair which has been damaged by wind, pollution and general weather conditions.

The L’Oreal ‘Absolute Repair’ range of haircare treatments is outstanding.

We can also deliver a hair mask treatment for coloured hair, even for each type of hair – this covers hair that might be needing the following care:

More moisture adding into hair

More protein replacement for hair

More colour care for haircare

Haircare for mechanically damaged hair

We identify the exact issues and haircare required for each client during our full and free consultation. Our trained haircare professionals in Bristol will assist you fully – and all for only £7.50 too!

Clients can also take home selected haircare products and treatments from only £14.99: simply ask in-salon when you book your appointment with us.

Hair masks are an excellent way to protect and rebuild hair integrity, as well as putting moisture back into weather-damaged hair in Winter.

Our hair masks using the brand new ranges of British Hair only cost £7.50 per treatment, and are proving to be one of the most popular haircare services we offer at our central Bristol hair salon in January and February.

Haircut of the Month in Bristol – Shaggy Lob

This week at Aidan Garlington Hair Design our central Bristol hairdressers are focusing on a new and exciting hairstyle – the Shaggy Lob.

In essence, the Shaggy Lob is a long bob hairstyle ideally suited for Winter.

The hair is shampooed, then after drying a slight chop is added to personalise it, as well as cutting in the basic shape, taking the weight out and texturizing it.

After straightening it, and chopped into it, the example shown here was curled with GHDs.

The Shaggy Lob is a versatile hairstyle, and is suited to hair with a natural curl or straight hair. It can also be worn in many different ways as an everyday cut.

How to get Beauty Works hair extensions in central Bristol in 2017

Aidan Garlington Hair Design has been recognised as leading providers of Beauty Works hair extensions in central Bristol for some time.

Beauty Works hair extensions in central Bristol at Aidan Garlington Hair Design

We wrote here a while ago about the hair extension services offered at our Baldwin Street hair salon. And the process of getting amazing Beauty Works hair extensions in central Bristol is now even easier for 2017.

hair extensions in Bristol from Aidan Garlington Hair Design

Our hair extension experts in Bristol offer a full and free hair consultation for each client to assess the strength and quality of the client’s hair – this usually lasts for 15-20 minutes.

We also advise clients on how to maintain and take care of hair extensions – looking after new hair extensions requires effort and consistent hair care.

It’s also important to consider the amount of hair extensions required: some clients might opt for a selection of hair extension bonds (which we provide from £150) whilst other clients may want a full head of hair extensions (which we can offer for approximately £500, depending on application for each client) – simply ask in-salon when attending your full hair extension consultation.

In our experience, Beauty Works hair extensions usually last for around three months, with maintenance visits needed monthly to check the quality of the hair extensions, as well as a salon visit a week after the hair extensions have been fitted to ensure that the client is managing their new hair extensions.

Hair extensions are a commitment, and we aim to make sure that our clients realise this before booking our hair extension services in central Bristol.

Why not book a full and free hair extension consultation with us at our Baldwin Street hair salon, so our Bristol hair extensionists can inform and educate you.

K-PAK hair restructuring hair products from Joico provide a full series of restructuring, hair mask and hair rehydration treatments, and are designed to rebuild the hair from within.

K-PAK hair products are particularly well-suited for hair that has been heat-damaged and chemically-damaged, and was the main hair care product on the market for hair restructuring before the launch of Olaplex onto the market.

Colour Bar express hair colouring service in Bristol for Christmas parties

With the festive season approaching in central Bristol, the hairdressing team on Baldwin Street here at Aidan Garlington are focusing on some of our firm favourites – including our unique and popular Colour Bar hair colouring service.

Colour Bar hair colouring in Bristol at Aidan Garlington Hair Design

Ideal for fast and affordable hair colouring for Christmas parties and office celebrations in Bristol, our Colour Bar is ideal for providing clients with an effective hair colouring service – usually delivered within an hour.

We can give clients the freedom to have hair colouring services for as little as £15, with the client being able to dry and finish off their own hair if required: our hair stylists in central Bristol can, of course, provide additional services such as blowdrying, but this will increase the client visit time to the Colour Bar.

One of the most popular hair colouring services at our Colour Bar in Bristol is for a client to have 4-8 packets added on either side of their parting, to cover up the roots and give a quick and easy hair colouring service for party season.

Alternatively, a client may prefer to have a full head of hair colouring provided – and we can assist on prices, colours and overall hair colouring options.

Some clients using our Colour Bar in the run-up to Christmas and office parties in Bristol prefer to have quick flashes of pink, blue or green put into their hair which is a perfect hair colouring look for Christmas party hair.

Simply pop into our salon, make a booking for our Colour Bar and our hair stylists will take care of the rest. To find out more about our Colour Bar and super-fast Styled to Perfection hair colouring services, please visit here.

Beauty Works hair extensions at our central Bristol hair salon

One of the less-well-known hairdressing elements we deliver here at Aidan Garlington is our expert hair extensions services.

And with the popularity of hair extensions in Bristol growing every month, we decided to talk about our preferred hair extension brand – Beauty Works.

The picture below shows stylist Liv with Beauty Works natural human hair extensions in place from a hair extension service provided last week:

Beauty Works hair extensions in Bristol at Adian Garlington Hair Design

The example above is a classic example of where hair isn’t thick enough or doesn’t grow quickly enough, so using hair extensions represented a fantastic solution.

The benefits of using hair extensions include the huge variety of colours, the fact that there is no commitment to put colours or chemicals into the hair, and hair extensions usually offer a healthier option for many of our clients.

Hair colouring in hair extensions also lasts for longer – typically, three to four months. Hair extensions also hold stronger, brighter hair colours well including blues, pinks and reds.

Our hair extensions also come in traditional brown and blonde colours as well.

Beauty Works hair extensions offer a great combination of good quality human hair extensions with great value for money.

For example, we offer a half-head of Beauty Works hair extensions of approximately 100 bonds from £350.

Prices vary, so it’s always best to ask when you make your hair extension service booking. We offer a full and free hair consultation with every hair extension booking made.

Typically, a half-head hair extension application at our central Bristol hair salon will take roughly three hours in the chair – ask our Baldwin Street hair stylists for more information.
