British Hair products now available at our central Bristol hair salon

The hairdressing team at Aidan Garlington Hair Design are pleased to announce a new range of hair products for clients at our central Bristol hair salon from British Hair.

The new product range, devised by a hair salon owner in the South West with extensive experience working within his own salon and educating on hairdressing for more than four decades, along with his business partner who has helped in the past to successfully market global hairdressing brand TIGI, are called British Hair.

The new product range from British Hair – 14 hair products in total – include hair styling and hair conditioning products, all competitively priced at £9.95, apart from the intensive mask treatment which is £11.95.

The British Hair products – now available at our Baldwin Street hair salon in central Bristol – add moisture and strengthen hair, which is an important consideration during the Winter months.

British Hair products are vegan-friendly (apart from the wax and paste), are biodegradable, and designed to be effective on chemically-damaged hair.

The mask treatment takes approximately 15 minutes. It’s applied onto shampooed and towel-dried hair, then left on the hair under heat for a further 10-15 minutes, providing the perfect hair treatment for January.

As a special offer on our British Hair mask treatment, we’re offering clients the mask treatment in-salon for £15 – including the 237ml pot of mask treatment product, which the client can then take home to provide further hair treatments. This gives incredible value, all for only £15 – just ask in-salon.

Our central Bristol hairdressers love these new hair products – and we think our clients will too. They are designed to be affordable and effective products.

K-PAK Joico hair restructuring product offer at our Bristol hair salon

This week at Aidan Garlington  focusing we’re taking a closer look at some of the most exciting hair restructuring hair products available at our central Bristol hair salon – from leading hair product brand Joico.

Joico hair restructuring products in Bristol at Aidan Garlington Hair Design

Dry and damaged hair due to Winter weather can be a real problem for many – and the hair restructuring products from Joico are a fantastic solution to hair care issues caused by Winter weather and increased heat in the home from central heating and real fires during colder months.

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.

The multi-action formulas within K-PAK hair products feature the unique Bio-Advanced Peptide and Quadramine complexes used exclusively in the Joico range. These are claimed to be the most powerful reconstructive technologies available for haircare, and focus on repairing and strengthening hair precisely.

The hair restructuring system provided by Joico’s K-PAK products offers a salon-based treatment, which our haircare experts in central Bristol are able to assist clients with.

Delivered in three stages, the first stage is applied in-salon, with stages two and three providing aftercare products to be used by the client at home.

This month, we’re giving clients the chance to experience K-PAK Joico hair restructuring products with a special offer: purchase our hair restructuring treatment and get 500ml shampoo and conditioner K-PAK hair products for only £29.95.

Simply mention this blog post and the reference ‘Joico’ when booking with us.

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.

Whilst appointments are not always necessary for the Colour Bar, during November and December we advise all clients to book in advance, as our central Bristol hair salon is so busy with pre-Christmas client bookings.

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.

Smart Bond hair restructuring products available in central Bristol

At Aidan Garlington we take the condition and health of our client’s hair as seriously as the quality and look of each hairstyle we deliver in our Baldwin Street hair salon.

So, it’s always a pleasure to be able to offer clients new, superb hair treatments and professional hair treatment from leading global hair product brands. And that includes the Smart Bond range from L’Oreal.

Our new range of Smart Bond hair products from L’Oreal deliver hair rehydration and hair restructuring similar to the Olaplex hair products.

We’re one of the first hair salons in central Bristol to be offering Smart Bond hair restructuring products to clients, and we’re really proud to be a L’Oreal hair salon in Bristol. We also stock other leading hair and beauty brands.

One of the biggest benefits of using L’Oreal Smart Bond products is that it can be added into a hair colour service without any adverse effects, but can also be treated as a stand-alone hair restructuring service if required by a client.

Because it’s a L’Oreal range of hair products, it can be added into colour at stage one of the process for longer, and is fully compatible with any other L’Oreal hair products. L’Oreal guarantees the quality of all Smart Bond products, which gives our clients added peace of mind when using them.

To celebrate the launch of Smart Bond hair restructuring products at our Baldwin Street hair salon, we’re giving clients a special offer.

Any client using our new Smart Bond hair products with a colour service will also get a take-home product included in the price – for only £20 (extra to the cost of colour service) get a free take-home product worth £16.99.
