Central Bristol hairdresser focus – Aidan Garlington

As part of our regular focus on the central Bristol hairdresser team working at our Baldwin Street hair salon, it’s time to focus on the salon founder and Creative Director at Aidan Garlington Hair Design.

Aidan started hairdressing after a work experience placement onto a Saturday job, and enjoyed the fun creative atmosphere so much that he went full-time in hairdressing, to rapidly complete his Level 3 NVQ Hairdressing qualification whilst working as an apprenticeship in at a Bath-based hair salon.

Aidan worked at the Bath hair salon for just under five years, then came to work in Bristol where he fell in love with the old city quarter with the fantastic buzz, easygoing atmosphere, and unique markets full of fantastic people.

Aidan has now worked as a leading hairdresser in the old city area of central Bristol for over 20 years, having started his successful hairdressing career at Charlie Browns and then onto Adam & Eve (now called Gaudi Hair Design).

Aidan went on to work as a leading hairstylist at Guy Fawkes, where he trained further, eventually managing the salon and successfully passing his L’Oréal Colour Specialist degree, in which he gained a 93% pass mark.

Aidan decided to set up his own salon 10 years ago, and moved to the current central Bristol hair salon located on Baldwin street nine years ago.

In his day-to-day duties within the hair studio, he cuts, colours, straightens, curls, and extends hair for clients using all the usual methods such as Raccoon, Beauty Works, Kerastraight, Xtenso and Yuko whilst continuing to utilize his expertise gained from his L’Oréal Colour Specialist Degree.

Aidan also took the Trevor Sorbie My New Hair industry training course (wig cutting for cancer patients) five years ago, which was an amazing experience.

Aidan works hard to keep up-to-date on current hairdressing trends and hot hairstyles, so that his team at the leading central Bristol hair studio can continue to give clients the best hairdressing experience on Baldwin Street.

Other benefits of partial hair extensions include a non-commitment to different hair colours by using hair extensions, adding volume in specific areas and increasing hair length to certain areas, such as strengthening up the baseline of a Bob haircut.

We’ve got a special offer on our new partial hair extension service – simply mention this blog post when you make your booking, and you’ll get your first follow-up hair extension maintenance appointment worth £25 for free!

How to get Beauty Works hair extensions in central Bristol in 2017

Aidan Garlington Hair Design has been recognised as leading providers of Beauty Works hair extensions in central Bristol for some time.

We wrote here a while ago about the hair extension services offered at our Baldwin Street hair salon. And the process of getting amazing Beauty Works hair extensions in central Bristol is now even easier for 2017.

Our hair extension experts in Bristol offer a full and free hair consultation for each client to assess the strength and quality of the client’s hair – this usually lasts for 15-20 minutes.

We also advise clients on how to maintain and take care of hair extensions – looking after new hair extensions requires effort and consistent hair care.

It’s also important to consider the amount of hair extensions required: some clients might opt for a selection of hair extension bonds (which we provide from £150) whilst other clients may want a full head of hair extensions (which we can offer for approximately £500, depending on application for each client) – simply ask in-salon when attending your full hair extension consultation.

In our experience, Beauty Works hair extensions usually last for around three months, with maintenance visits needed monthly to check the quality of the hair extensions, as well as a salon visit a week after the hair extensions have been fitted to ensure that the client is managing their new hair extensions.

Hair extensions are a commitment, and we aim to make sure that our clients realise this before booking our hair extension services in central Bristol.

Why not book a full and free hair extension consultation with us at our Baldwin Street hair salon, so our Bristol hair extensionists can inform and educate you.

Beauty Works hair extensions at our central Bristol hair salon

One of the less-well-known hairdressing elements we deliver here at Aidan Garlington is our expert hair extensions services.

And with the popularity of hair extensions in Bristol growing every month, we decided to talk about our preferred hair extension brand – Beauty Works.

The picture below shows stylist Liv with Beauty Works natural human hair extensions in place from a hair extension service provided last week:

The example above is a classic example of where hair isn’t thick enough or doesn’t grow quickly enough, so using hair extensions represented a fantastic solution.

The benefits of using hair extensions include the huge variety of colours, the fact that there is no commitment to put colours or chemicals into the hair, and hair extensions usually offer a healthier option for many of our clients.

Hair colouring in hair extensions also lasts for longer – typically, three to four months. Hair extensions also hold stronger, brighter hair colours well including blues, pinks and reds.

Our hair extensions also come in traditional brown and blonde colours as well.

Beauty Works hair extensions offer a great combination of good quality human hair extensions with great value for money.

For example, we offer a half-head of Beauty Works hair extensions of approximately 100 bonds from £350.

Prices vary, so it’s always best to ask when you make your hair extension service booking. We offer a full and free hair consultation with every hair extension booking made.

Typically, a half-head hair extension application at our central Bristol hair salon will take roughly three hours in the chair – ask our Baldwin Street hair stylists for more information.
