We’ve got another exclusive offer this week from the central Bristol hair salon at Aidan Garlington on all Olaplex hair treatments in central Bristol for existing and new clients.

Olaplex hair treatments in central Bristol from Aidan Garlington

Olaplex is the only hair treatment product available on the market currently which actively reconstructs disulphide bonds in hair, effectively rebuilding hair and adding strength, volume and body. It’s an incredible hair treatment.

Our Olaplex hair treatments in central Bristol can be offered as a standalone hair treatment service, as well as being added to hair during a colouring.

The biggest benefits of using Olaplex as a leading hair treatment from our Baldwin Street-based hair salon are for clients with thin hair and heavily-coloured hair.

Olaplex has been advocated by many celebrities in recent months, including Kim Kardashian, and her highly-publicised hair colour changes from black to blonde and back to back have all been assisted by the use of Olaplex.

A typical Olaplex hair treatment for clients involves the following process:

Number One Olaplex product is applied for five minutes, followed by Number Two Olaplex product to activate the hair reconstruction treatment.

After the hair is rinsed the treatment is complete and Number Three Olaplex product is given to the client to take away and use at home once a week.

Our Olaplex hair treatment usually costs £20 in salon, with a blowdry at £20 and Number Three Olaplex take-home product retailing at £33. Total of £73.

Our exclusive blog offer on Olaplex hair treatments is simple – get the following elements at discounted prices from our central Bristol hair studio:

Olaplex treatment plus Number Three product to take home £45

Full treatment, plus blowdry, plus Number Three product      £65

Lightening Gel is a superb hair highlighting product, delivering high lift tints. It’s part of the more popular technique of freehand hair highlighting now being utilised in our central Bristol hair studio.

Our hair highlighting using Lightening Gel relies less on the traditional foil process, and instead utilises a more individual and bespoke application for each client – giving them a truly unique look for their Summer highlights.

Our hair highlighting experts in central Bristol can provide pre-lightener highlights, Baby Lights, and Bayalage hair colouring services as required.

Our hair highlighting using Lightening Gel starts with a free hair consultation for each client, then between 45 minutes and 90 minutes to apply depending on whether it’s a half-head or full-head service, followed by 30-50 minutes’ processing time, with a rinse, and a cut and style as normal afterwards.

Whilst hair colouring lasts typically for up to eight weeks, our hair highlighting can still look stunning for 3-4 months, depending on ongoing haircare used.

One of the biggest benefits of our Lightening Gel hair highlighting is that there’s no harsh re-growth, and no roots showing through on this hairstyling.

Our partial highlighting service costs from £25, with a full head service from £80. Top lifted hair highlighting costs less – just ask in-salon for full details.

And, as an extra incentive for clients to get their hair highlighted and ready for Summer at our central Bristol hair studio, we’re also giving all hair highlighting clients a FREE hair rehydration treatment with every hair colouring service.

Colour Bar – expert new hair colouring services in central Bristol

We’ve got an exciting new service to discuss this week at Aidan Garlington with our express Colour Bar offering expert and rapid hair colouring services in central Bristol.

hair colouring services in central Bristol at Aidan Garlington Hair Design

Our express hair colouring Colour Bar service delivers clients a range of different services – some of which are so rapid, that they can be provided within a lunch hour, if needed.

One of the most popular elements of our Colour Bar hair colouring service is the ability to top up foils or colour for clients visiting our central Bristol hair salon – this means the hair colouring cycle is shortened for them, too.

Our hair colouring experts deliver the same quality, but less quantity so a typical express air colour service will take 15 minutes to apply the colour, 30 minutes processing time for the hair colours, and then a quick blast dry by the client themselves. This gives them a rapid and cost-effective hair colouring.

Foils or colour at our unique Colour Bar service in central Bristol cost from only £15, and some of our existing express clients pop into our central Bristol hair studio for a quick and easy colour weft extension of six colours running through their hair to create an exciting and low-maintenance hairstyle.

New clients can come straight into the Colour Bar for our express hair colouring services, whilst new clients need to book in 40 hours in advance for a patch skin testing, to ensure that there’s no allergic reaction to our hair colouring products. Ask in-salon for further details on this pre-service item.

We can offer a range of quick and easy hair colouring services at our Colour Bar, as well as blowdrying for our clients if required.
