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.

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!

Haircut of the month in Bristol – Cropped Hair for women this Summer

It’s that time of the month here at Aidan Garlington Hair Design when we dedicate our central Bristol hair salon blog to a specific haircut or hairstyle to showcase it for readers and clients.

And with Summer upon us, we’re going to review a popular hairstyle for our female clients – cropped hair for women this Summer in Bristol.

Bristol cropped hair for women at Aidan Garlington Hair Design

The essential element to this women’s hairstyle is to have it cropped on one side and longer on the other. It’s a dramatic, statement haircut and great for Summer weather, as it allows movement and air flow across the face and neck during warmer weather, whilst still retaining a strong signature look.

The women’s haircut in the pictures above was delivered using scissors and clippers, with the scissors creating texture and giving added softness overall.

The full head colour was from a bleach and tone treatment, followed by application of Fuschia colour from the Milkshake hair colouring brand.

The scissor cut at the side provides a strong look, whilst the cropping element leads into a longer level on the left from a graduated bob and a soft fringe.

This gorgeous example of cropped hair for women took approximately two and three quarter hours to deliver and costs from £93, depending on the stylists level providing the cut and colour.

Ask the hairstyling team at our Baldwin Street hair salon in central Bristol for further details when you make your booking. It’s a fantastic Summer look!

Haircut of the Month at our central Bristol hair salon – Rainbow Roots

This week at Aidan Garlington Hair Design we’re focusing on another superb haircut from a recent client visit to our Baldwin Street hair salon in central Bristol.

And this month’s top hairstyle is becoming a firm favourite – Rainbow Roots.

Bristol Rainbow Roots hairstyle from Aidan Garlington Hair Design

It’s a popular fun haircut, and involves applying pre-lightener to lift colour. Our hair colouring experts in Bristol recommend L’Oreal Platinum as a great hair colouring product to lift colour as well as add tone for a Rainbow Roots cut.

After applying pre-lightener, different colours are added into roots, depending on what the client wants. These can be semi-permanent, traditional hair colouring products, or temporary Hair Chalks which typically wash out in 3-5 washes without the need for pre-lightening.

The toner colours are left in to process for around 20 minutes, then the hair is rinsed, cut and styled. It’s that simple.

Rainbow Roots in Bristol at Aidan Garlington Hair design

Semi-permanent Hair Chalks take about 20 minutes in the chair and cost from as little as £20, whilst full bleach and toning takes around two and a half hours with a cut and blowdry, and costs from £45.

Our central Bristol hair colourists also recommend using gentle shampoo for daily maintenance, which should see tonal colours staying in the hair and looking vivid for up to four weeks.

After that, we can apply a colour refresh if required, which only takes 30 minutes at our Baldwin Street hair salon.

The Rainbow Roots is a fantastic hairstyle for an Undercut colour, which can also be covered up for work or professional purposes. It’s also a subtle hair colour, and our favourites at the moment are pinks and purples.

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.
