Christmas hairstyles and party hair ideas from our Bristol hairdressers

It’s that time of year when all of our lovely clients are thinking about Christmas hairstyles and party hair ideas – and our Bristol hairdressers are on hand.

We’ve got a selection of seasonal hairstyles and festive haircuts to consider, so that Christmas and the office party season gives you the best hair ideas.

We’ve got our favourite festive hairstyles to share with you, starting with a Curly Blow-Dry, as highlighted below:

The Curly Blow-Dry shown above was created by using British Hair Curl Cream, with the addition of British Hair Texture Salt Spray.

Using a medium-sized round brush, helping to create volume and textured loose waves. This Christmas hairstyle took around 45 minutes, from £19.50.

The second festive party hair look from our Baldwin Street hairstylists is a 15-Minute Hair-up, and the example below was styled using British Hair hairspray, as well as British Hair Style Dust, to give texture and hold, but also allowing the hair to move and to be restyled.

The lightly-curled hair was worked with hair straighteners and left to fall naturally, with French plaits added on both sides then worked into a smooth bun for the client.

Adding soft curls can give a more glamourous, volumised style for an office party, or it can be kept sleeker to give a more sophisticated overall look.

Our classic 15-Minute Hair-Up is part of the Styled To Perfection menu, and is available for only £15.

The third festive party hairstyle from our team is called Stuck On You, and involves adding hair wefts into the hair. These don’t require application using heated tools, so the integrity and condition of the hair is fully maintained.

Each hair weft costs £17.50, or we can re-stick an existing weft for £5 each.

The hair wefts are from brand name Raccoon Hair, made of 100% human hair, giving you the ability to straighten, curl, blow-dry and style as you wish.

Stunning hair restyling service now available in central Bristol

Are you thinking about a new look for your hair? Time for a hair restyle?

Why not come and see us for a full and free hair consultation, before we deliver you a stunning hair restyling in our central Bristol hair salon.

hair restyling central Bristol

Jody (16) pictured above – who is also the niece of Creative Director Aidan Garlington – came into our Baldwin Street hair salon with waist-length hair and wanted a dramatic hair restyle.

She also wanted to donate both of her long hair plaits to the Little Princess Trust, a charity that makes real hair wigs for young cancer patients and children suffering from hair loss problems in general.

The hair restyling began with a full consultation, to consider the options available and also to ensure that Jody would be happy with the final look.

The hair was sectioned from the left-hand-side to the top of the right ear, with everything below that line being clippered to a number two length.

Everything above it was taken across to form a bob shape for the right-hand-side, leaving the ability to part on the right for an asymmetrical classic bob.

The hair was pre-lightened twice using L’Oreal Platinum to a pale yellow base, then coloured with L’Oreal ColorFul.

One horizontal section was coloured at the roots with Electric Purple and the ends with Hypnotic Magenta, whilst the next section up was coloured with Navy Blue fading into more Hypnotic Magenta, creating an amazing look.

This complete hair restyling service took over five hours, and would cost approximately £200 at our central Bristol hair salon, with the hair going to a good cause. Well done Jody!

Looking for a Tom Hardy men’s haircut in Bristol? Read this!

We’ve had a few requests in recent weeks for a Tom Hardy style of men’s haircut in Bristol from our male hairdressing clients visiting our Baldwin Street hair salon.

Seeing as this British actor has such a strong and iconic look, our team of central Bristol hairdressers decided to focus on this particular hairstyle for men, seeing as we offer the full range of gents hairdressing services.

Tom Hardy men's haircut in Bristol at Aidan Garlington Hair Design

The picture above sporting one of Tom Hardy’s recent popular looks is a great example to recreate, and our male hairstyling clients have loved this one.

It’s a short and sharp clipper cut on the sides, leaving some length at the top to create a workable, texturized finish.

The Tom Hardy look was finished using clay wax, with British Hair texturizing powder and Beach Waves sea salt spray for a messy but defined men’s hairstyling look.

Pricing for this men’s haircut at our central Bristol hair salon ranges from £19 to £24 – just ask for further details when you visit us, or ring to book your appointment.

The second picture of Tom above shows a variation on the previous look. As the initial style grows out, the sides become softer and can be styled and worn pushed back. The top can then be left with a swept back, sleeker look.

We offer all of our men’s hairdressing clients a full and free hair consultation in central Bristol, so if you’re unsure which men’s haircut is right for you, simply ask one of the hairdressing team at our Baldwin Street hair salon and we’ll be happy to advise you further on the best men’s haircuts and products.
