Bristol hairdressers give advice on hair straighteners, hair tongs and hair curling wands

Some of our clients have been asking the team of Bristol hairdressers at Aidan Garlington Hair Design for advice on using hair straighteners, hair tongs and hair curling wands.

Using the right type of hair curling or hair straightening equipment for different hair types is really important to maintain hair integrity and healthy, well-conditioned hair, so we’ve decided to write a full blog post on this topic.

advice on using hair straighteners from Bristol hairdressers Aidan Garlington Hair Design

Starting with hair straighteners above, using this hairstyling equipment on jaw to shoulder-length hair will give a more defined, tighter look that last well.

The tightness of hair curls depends on the temperature of the straighteners being used, so the hotter the tool, the tighter the hair curl will be.

Using hair straighteners on shoulder-length hair and longer will give a loose and natural look, as the weight of the hair will pull curls down. Hair curls can be made tighter with application of more heat, but this needs to be done carefully and with heat defending hair conditioning products in place first.

advice on hair culring wands from Bristol hairdressers Aidan Garlington Hair Design

Hair curling wands are really flexible and can be used on any hair length, providing curls which are natural. The wider barrel length on curling wands also enables a multi-texture curl because it is wider at the top then gradually gets smaller at the bottom of the hair curling wand, like those above.

This helps to give a quick and workable curl using professional curl wands.

advice on hair tongs from Bristol hairdressers Aidan Garlington Hair Design

The third preferred piece of hairstyling equipment from our central Bristol hairdressers are hair tongs as seen above, and these usually have a small barrel size the whole length down.

Hair tongs give flexibility as barrel sizes are different on different tongs – so, for example, if you want a tight corkscrew curl effect, simply choose a small barrel hair tong. For a natural beach wave style, use a medium to large barrel.

Hair tongs can be used on and hair type and length, and are a great option.

Using a medium-sized round brush, helping to create volume and textured loose waves. This Christmas hairstyle took around 45 minutes, from £19.50.

The second festive party hair look from our Baldwin Street hairstylists is a 15-Minute Hair-up, and the example below was styled using British Hair hairspray, as well as British Hair Style Dust, to give texture and hold, but also allowing the hair to move and to be restyled.

The lightly-curled hair was worked with hair straighteners and left to fall naturally, with French plaits added on both sides then worked into a smooth bun for the client.

Adding soft curls can give a more glamourous, volumised style for an office party, or it can be kept sleeker to give a more sophisticated overall look.

Our classic 15-Minute Hair-Up is part of the Styled To Perfection menu, and is available for only £15.

The third festive party hairstyle from our team is called Stuck On You, and involves adding hair wefts into the hair. These don’t require application using heated tools, so the integrity and condition of the hair is fully maintained.

Each hair weft costs £17.50, or we can re-stick an existing weft for £5 each.
