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.

Bristol hair stylist competes in national hair colouring competition

We’re really excited to announce this week that our team member and Bristol hair stylist Lisa will be competing in a national hair colouring competition.

Bristol hair stylist hair colouring

Lisa has 14 years’ hairdressing experience and specialises in hair colouring, wedding hair, hair extensions and Afro hairstyling.

She has already gained specialist hair colouring qualifications from L’Oreal, as well as successfully completing her NVQ Level 3 in Hairdressing with flying colours in the past.

The L’Oreal Colour Trophy competition has been running in the UK for over 60 years, and is one of the most prestigious British hairdressing competitions.

There are four main categories in the hair colouring competition, and hair colouring experts will be competing from across the country to win awards.

The judging of this year’s competition will be conducted by more than 50 top-level hairdressers and hair colouring gurus from around the world, and is set to be one of the most exciting hairdressing competitions of the year.

Talking about this year’s upcoming competition, Lisa commented:

“I’ve always aspired to enter Colour Trophy. I love hair colouring because it’s possible to transform a hairstyle in a relatively short space of time. The competition is going to be really exciting but also very nerve-wracking!”

Our team of central Bristol hairstylists will be supporting Lisa, and wishing her every success during the 2019 competition. We’ll be updating blog readers on how she fares in coming weeks as well.

Hair colouring offer in Bristol – top ups from only £20

One of the most popular hairdressing services at our Baldwin Street hair salon in December is always our unique Colour Bar, where we offer a range of fast, affordable and expert hair colouring to clients in a rush.

So, to celebrate the start of 2019 as well as giving clients a great deal, we’ve got a hair colouring offer in Bristol, subject to availability.

The start of the year is when clients are looking for great deals and bargains, but the post-Christmas Blues can also mean that money is tight.

So, we’re able to give clients low-cost hair colouring top-up treatments and services at our central Bristol hair salon.

Our Colour Bar hair colouring services and quick fix services start from as little as £20, and can be pre-booked at a date and time to suit you.

It might be the addition of an extra few slices of colour that’s required, or maybe a top-up of an existing colour without a full head hair colour – simply ask in-salon and our team of hair colouring experts will advise you further.

Hair colour offers in Bristol are rare, as many hair salons find January and February are their quietest months of the year, and are therefore reluctant to give offers and discounts on high-end services such as hair colouring.

Our Colour Bar, however, is an easy and cheap way to boost your colour or add a flash of new colour into your hairstyle without breaking the bank, and within a quick appointment slot – usually less than one hour.

To find out more about our Colour Bar and the new quick-fix hair colouring services available, please visit here.
