NEW Copper Balayage now available at our central Bristol salon

We’ve got new Copper Balayage hair colouring services at our central Bristol salon, and clients are enjoying more of our balayage hair colouring services.

copper balayage bristol

Balayage (French for freehand painting) is one of our most popular hair colouring services in Bristol, with copper and red hair colours being preferred options for the Autumn.

A balayage can be a whole head hair colouring service, or a top up and tone.

One of the most positive elements of a Copper Balayage is that is gives low commitment and easily manageable hair colouring for a client, whilst ongoing maintenance means a balayage is a great choice for many of our clients.

Blonde balayage which is usually in demand during the Summer months, and the hair colour is essentially topped up, then tone added, which is where additional colour changes can be added, such as copper or red.

A Copper Balayage is where our hair colouring experts on Baldwin Street tone the ends, or the whole head for a more vivid effect, and clients can gain a huge amount of versatility for their hair colouring requirements.

Depending on the hair length and thickness, a Copper Balayage usually takes between two and four hours in-salon, and costing between £120-£180.

Copper Balayage looks set to be our most popular freehand hair colouring for the Autumn, and we predict that copper and red hair colouring will remain popular from September through to January.

We also provide a Covid-safe experience for all our clients, and are a Barbicide-certified salon in Bristol providing the very best client safety.

If a client wants to change an existing hair colour to a new tone, we can do this easily with costs starting from £45.

What’s better after Bristol lockdown lifts – hair colour correction or hair colouring?

One of the most common questions clients are asking us at Aidan Garlington hair Design is What’s better when Bristol lockdown lifts – hair colour correction or hair colouring?

Central Bristol hairstylists at Aidan Garlington Hair Design

As many clients are now approaching three months without any hair colouring due to the Covid-19 outbreak, many have been in touch asking what to do.

Over time hair hardens and becomes more difficult to colour. It needs a new colour application, and this can be costly, as well as time-consuming.

With the current lockdown in place across Bristol, many people are seeing that their old hair colouring has grown out, whilst some fancy a complete change. We’ve also heard a few horror stories involving box colours at home.

This is where a hair colour correction can sometimes be a better services for a client compared to a traditional hair colouring service.

Hair colour correction is also a useful service when hair is exceptionally damaged by poor quality hair colouring, and needs urgent attention.

We’re also predicting that once lockdown lifts and Bristol hair salons can safely re-open, there will be huge demand for hair colour correction services.

Typically, a standard hair colour correction will cost £45 on top of the normal cut and hair colouring costs in-salon.

As a rough guide for more involved hair colour correction services, we’d look at going from two to three levels up in steps of colour, costing £40 per level.

With such a detailed hair colour service, our consultations are all bespoke, and we only provide the best hair colouring advice for each individual client.

At our Baldwin Street salon, we offer bespoke and free hair consultations, and a hair colour correction is effectively a hair colour reset or a bleach-based colour correction for a client.

If you have any queries about hair colour correction, please feel free to get in touch with us at our Baldwin Street salon here.

Hair care advice during Bristol lockdown from our Baldwin Street hairdressers

We’ve had a few clients getting in touch over the last few weeks wanting help and tips, so we decided to write a specific blog post about hair care advise during the Bristol lockdown from our Baldwin Street hairdressers.

central Bristol hair studio

The first thing to point out is that hair care during Bristol lockdown is essentially the same as at any other time. Our top tips for you are:

Keep hair ends in the best possible condition

Apply hair masques weekly for hydration

Cut back on hair-drying and hair straightening

Use heat protection & conditioners to stop colour fade

Let colour grow out, avoid using box hair colours

Other hair care advice from our Baldwin Street hairdressers includes don’t cut your own hair, but let it grow out and adapt using different hairstyles such as Messy Buns and Plaits. We’ll be writing an in-depth blog post on this soon.

It’s also a good time to experience with your hair, such as putting a grown-out fringe into a quiff, or brushing a fringe into a side fringe, as well as styling longer hair.

For example, a zig-zag parting is superb for breaking up hair colour as well as hiding root colour during lockdown when hair colours might well be fading.

Lots of people might be worried about their hair colour right now too, but we advise that the most important to consider during Bristol lockdown is the condition not colour of their hair. Good hair conditioning is essential.

We also have hints and tips on root concealers, and using root re-spray products for temporary colour cover-up. A dedicated blog will follow soon.

Try our copper and red hair colouring services in Bristol for 2020

January is a great time to think about a change, so why not try our Copper and red hair colouring services in Bristol as a great way to kick off 2020.

Copper hair colour and red hair colours are popular in Winter months, when dark cold weather can be brightened up with stunning coppers and reds being added to clients’ hair – either as permanent or temporary hair colours.

There are a few key considerations to bear in mind when thinking about copper hair colouring or red hair colours from a Bristol hair salon, particularly when matching up the right copper or red hair colour with a client’s skin tone.

copper red hair colouring Bristol 2020

Soft copper suits fair skin, as the in-salon example above highlights. Copper hair colour can also be a great contrast for blue eyes, whilst a pink yellow undertone to skin really suits a dusty copper, as with the client example.

copper hair colouring Bristol 2020

The in-salon copper hair colour above from our Baldwin Street hairdressers shows that a rosy copper colour in the hair suits yellow and more neutral undertones.

red hair colouring Bristol 2020

The client above had fair to medium skin tone, so we recommended and applied a more dramatic copper hair colour, as the stunning example shows.

Other basic considerations include a skin patch test 48 hours before the hair colouring appointment, to ensure no allergies are present and that the client’s skin isn’t particularly sensitive to any of the hair colouring products we use.

We will also give every client a full and free hair colouring consultation, so they are completely happy with us to proceed and deliver a stunning copper or ravishing red hair colour to help banish the Winter Blues and see in 2020.

Ask in-salon for our range of hair colouring services. Prices for all-over copper hair colour start from £40.

What are the top Autumn hair colour trends in Bristol this year?

With Summer on the way out, clients visiting our Baldwin Street salon are starting to ask what are the autumn hair colour trends in Bristol this year?

And our team of hair colouring experts in central Bristol have a selection of upcoming options to consider for an Autumnal hair colour with us.

The change of season is a perfect opportunity to try a new hair colour, and this Summer saw favourite hair colours being blonde and sun-kissed brown.

This season, the trending hair colours in Bristol for 2019 are going to be rich warm caramel browns, fiery copper reds, and cool frosty blonds.

top Autumn hair colour trends Bristol

The example above highlights a firm hair colour favourite for our Bristol hairdressers this Autumn – a Blonde Balayage.

Autumn doesn’t always mean a transition from light to dark hair colour, and Blonde Balayage is trending heavily across social media this year.

The roots are kept close to the natural hair colour, whilst the hair length blends into cool tips that look healthy and shiny. It’s a great Autumn hair colour choice for those that don’t have time to make multiple salon visits.

Another stunning Autumn hair colour for 2019 in Bristol will be Chocolate Caramel. This rich and warm brown hair colouring choice is gorgeous.

Using a pre-lightener helps to lift the hair colour for better dimensions, and choosing a rich brown for Autumn remains a popular choice with clients.

Why not opt for a chocolatey brown or caramel hair colour this year? Contrasting caramel strands weaved throughout the hair look amazing.

best Autumn hair colours in Bristol for 2019

Our third Autumn hair colour choice delivers a fiery copper red, and this has been a popular option for our clients in the past. This year is no different.

Copper red hair colour is a glamorous look, and doesn’t require numerous salon visits. It gives the hair vibrancy and depth, and looks incredible.

best Autumn hair colours Bristol

Warm brown or hot reds aren’t the only hair colours for Autumn, and this year our Baldwin Street hair colouring team in central Bristol also predict that cool frosty platinum blondes will be a popular seasonal choice this year.

The ongoing trend for a cool Nordic white looks set to be popular for 2019, and it’s a stunning hair colour. This is an intense and dramatic look.

While a Platinum Blonde hair colour requires maintenance, the overall look delivers a truly incredible look for clients who want a real wow factor.
