Looking for hair straightening services for men in Bristol? Read this!

With the recent warm, humid weather, we’ve had an increase in demand for hair straightening services for men in Bristol, and decided to post on our central Bristol hairdressing blog about the subject.

hair straightening for men Bristol

Although hair straightening for men in Bristol has traditionally been a low-demand service at our Baldwin Street hair salon, the trend for longer hair for men during and after lockdown this year has seen a rise in the number of male clients visiting us and requiring hair straightening services.

Our favourite hair product treatment to use for hair straightening services is X-Tenso Moisturist. Perfect for rebellious frizzy hair, it’s designed by L’Oreal to deliver smooth, shiny and de-volumised hair for men and women.

X-Tenso Moisturist utilises new technology for increased conditioning and smoothing effect, and our male clients have been blown away by it.

Delivering long-lasting professional volume and frizz control, this is our favourite professional hair relaxer product for curly and unruly hair.

Whether a male client wants to reduce the volume, retain volume, go smooth and sleek, this exclusive hair straightening treatment for men is the key.

Available in-salon, and with the expert hair straightening advice from our men’s hairstyling team on Baldwin Street, using X-Tenso Moisturist from L’Oreal will transform the way you view hair straightening permanently.

We predict that this hair straightening treatment for men and women will also be in high demand throughout the rest of the year, as moisture and increased wet weather through the Autumn can also curl unruly hair for many clients.

Please mention this Blog post when you book your next hair straightening appointment with our central Bristol hair studio.

If you have any queries about our hair straightening services for men, please feel free to get in touch with us here.

Best Gents hairstyling for Summer from central Bristol hairdressers

We’ve had requests from male clients this week to provide advice on the best Gents hairstyling for Summer, so our central Bristol hairdressers have provided some hints on our blog.

Gents hairstyling Summer central Bristol

As many of our regular clients will know, we provide the full range of gents hairstyling, men’s haircuts and male grooming services at our hair salon.

We think that for men’s hairstyling during Summer 2019 in Bristol, there will be two main looks that guys will go for – short hair and long hair.

Gents hairstyling tips for Summer Bristol

Short haircuts for men in Summer can easily be managed and styled with wax, putty or style dust to give a texturized but messy look all day long.

Moreover, these hair products for men can be used direct the hair in any way required, producing different levels of hold, matte and shine finishes, as well as giving heat protection and hair rehydration with some hair products.

We offer a huge range of men’s hair products, including the popular Great British Barber and Seb Man ranges, so ask in-salon and one of our central Bristol hairstylists will be able to assist you in getting the best hair products for shorter styles.

Best Summer hairstyles for gents in central Bristol

Our Bristol hairstylists are also seeing more men wearing long hairstyles this Summer in Bristol, and longer hair on men can be styled with a dust product or texturized spray, to give a messy, beach look. Gels and waxes are also good, and it all depends on the hair type and hair length for each client.

We’re also giving our male clients an exclusive male grooming product offer with this blog, as the Summer is an important time to maintain the health and hydration of beards too.

Any client mentioning this blog post will be able to buy Seb Man Beard Oil for only £10 – a huge saving on the standard price of £19.70. Ask in-salon.
