What’s the difference between hairdressing and barbering in Bristol?

One of the questions we often get asked by new clients visiting our Baldwin Street hair salon is what’s the difference between hairdressing and barbering in Bristol, and new male clients in particular are keen to find out more.

gents hairdressing services central Bristol

When we get new male clients visiting our central Bristol salon for the first time, they’re often passing trade due to our location or alternatively because we’ve been recommended to them by an existing client of ours.

The question about hairdressing and barbering is a good one, because as a unisex hair salon in central Bristol, we’ve seen more and more male clients visiting us in 2018 to utilise our barbering and gents’ hairdressing services.

gents hairdressing in central bristol at Aidan Garlington Hair Design

We give all clients (male and female) a full and free hair consultation before carrying out any cutting, and this gives a new client the opportunity to talk through their current look, any inspiration they want to bring to a new look, as well as chatting to our team of friendly and experienced hair stylists in detail.

The world of barbering has traditionally been scene as quite one-dimensional from outside the hair industry. Barbering has been viewed as simply about clipper haircuts, a short back and sides delivered in 10 minutes, and then a repeat visit every few weeks to trim the hair with clippers again for a guy.

This, of course, isn’t the case at our hair salon, and our male clients enjoy the same level of consultation, creative cutting and hair product advice that our female clients enjoy when they visit us.

men's Summer haircuts in Bristol

Our hairdressing services involve a full hair consultation every time, a high level of client education around hairdressing and product knowledge, scissor cuts and professional hair styling for men. It’s a top-level experience.

Not just that, but our pricing structure for barbering services is flexible too, rather than trying to offer a one-stop-shop approach as some salons do.

We price our gents’ hairdressing services based on the experience level of our stylist delivering the service. So, for example, our barbering services are currently priced at three levels: £19.50, £21.50 and £24, and isn’t dependent on the amount of time in the chair when a male client visits us.

We pride ourselves on the level of male hairdressing education and men’s hair product knowledge we pass on, too, and are regularly posting male-centric blog posts for the benefit of our growing male client audience.

We also have male and female stylists, so the choice is up to you when you visit our Baldwin Street hair salon in terms of who works with you on your hair.

For example, we recently wrote about the latest trends in gents’ hairdressing in central Bristol – visit here to find out more.

We also stock the full range of superb men’s hair products from Great British Barber – visit here to read all about it.

Our Bristol Hairdressing Blog has lots of examples of men’s haircuts, barbering in central Bristol, as well as the latest men’s hair products we recommend for our male clients – visit here to find out more.

The team of central Bristol hairstylists at our Baldwin Street hair salon have seen a few new and interesting client visits this Summer, and we wanted to dedicate a blog post to showcasing some of our extra hairdressing services.

Central Bristol hairstylists

There was also a group of ladies visiting Bristol for the weekend to see the sights including the Wallace & Gromit Trail, and they wanted to discuss Hair-Up options with us for their big Saturday night out on the town.

We have also provided temporary hair chalk for clients visiting Bristol, which wash out after three shampoos but give a vibrant fun new hair colour for a short period of time. Ask in-salon for further details on this new service.

We are seeing more clients visiting the salon during weekends away to Bristol, as well as wedding parties, and other special anniversary events.

What are the top men’s haircut trends for Summer 2018 in Bristol?

A few of our male hairdressing clients were chatting this week about the top men’s haircuts for Summer 2018 in Bristol, so we decided to write a blog post about what we think will be the hottest looks for men this year.

men's haircut trends Summer 2018 Bristol

We recently wrote a blog post about the latest trends in gents’ hairdressing in Bristol – visit here to find out more.

One of the most popular Summer haircuts for men at our central Bristol hair salon remains the Textured Crop Haircut.

The crop has been a haircut that’s remained popular for over 12 months, and our central Bristol hairdressers expect to see more men going for it this Summer. The biggest factor is texture throughout plus choosing either a blunt fringe or choppy, textured look. We offer a full and free consultation to men.

men's Summer haircuts in Bristol

Another popular men’s haircut will be the Short Textured Quiff Haircut – particularly after the change by David Beckham from longer locks to a low-maintenance men’s haircut for the Summer.

It’s a versatile Summer hairstyle for men who want a shorter cut but also a hairstyle that doesn’t need too much work in the morning. It works best with texture and a loose, unstructured look.

A third favourite men’s hairstyle for Summer will be the Classic Short Back & Sides Haircut, which is perfect for office workers looking for a stylish cut.

Best Summer haircuts for men in Bristol

This look has made a big comeback recently, particularly after films such as Dunkirk and Harry Styles wearing this look with dramatic effect in the movie.

We recommend using a matte clay or paste product to style this look, but it can also be upgraded with a low fade or taper on the sides to modernise it.

One of the favourite Summer hairstyles for men in Bristol is also a Natural Side Parting Haircut, which is effectively a twist on the classic side parting.

best Summer haircuts for men in Bristol

It’s the perfect smart haircut for Summer for men, and is a great look for guys who want to look smart but with a natural and relaxed look. Using a medium-strength matte paste to style this men’s hairstyle produces the best look.

Men with Long and Wavy Hair will also be another popular choice at our Bristol hair salon, as Summer weather is good for longer, loose styling.

Summer hairstyles for guys in Bristol

The skin fades of 2017 have moved more towards longer locks during the Winter months, and we’ve seen that male hairdressing clients are now looking to go for a more relaxed and tousled look if their hair is longer or very curly.

Using a sea salt spray is the best way to enhance natural curls and long hair.

Another fantastic men’s hairstyle to watch out for this Summer in Bristol will be the Soft Undercut, first made popular in 2016 with Brad Pitt in the hit movie Fury. It’s a great men’s haircut to match up with a long beard.

Utilising a clean fade on the side and back provides a smart casual look that’s really versatile at both the office and the beach.

Our Bristol hairdressers can guide and advise on the best men’s Summer haircut to match your face shape, hair type, and hair regime.

We also stock the full range of Great British Barber products at our central Bristol hair salon – please visit here to find out more.
