Perfect Spring haircut in Bristol – Hair Lightening with Olaplex

Clients visiting our Baldwin Street salon have been asking for the perfect Spring haircut in Bristol – and our answer for 2019 is Hair Lightening with Olaplex hair treatment.

Bristol hair lightening Olaplex

Spring is only weeks away, and it’s a great time of year to consider lightening hair whilst also conditioning and treating it in preparation for warmer weather, to reduce sun damage, dry hair issues, as well as looking great for Spring.

The client example above last week is a great showcase for our Bristol hair lightening and Olaplex hair treatment.

The client came into the salon with very long hair, and asked for us to cut the majority of the length off before starting the hair colour service.

The cut hair was foiled in diagonal sections, with a two-inch gap in colour application to the scalp. Although a classic Balayage hair colour is usually applied freehand, we used foils as the client wanted the hair to be as light as possible. The heat from the foils also helped the hair colour to lift further.

Once the hair colour had lifted to the client’s required lighter shade, we toned it with a light ash toner, then cut off another two inches to reach Bob length.

Olaplex hair treatment was used in the bleach and toner, to re-build hair bonds that can be broken down in the hair colouring process. We recommend using Olaplex with every hair lightening service at our Bristol hair salon, as it helps to retain and strengthen the integrity of hair.

The hair was then blow-dried smooth, then curled with a Cloud Nine Styler to create gorgeous big loose curls for the client.

The above cut, hair colouring and Olaplex hair treatment service usually takes between 3-4 hours, and costs from £142.50, depending on the stylist.

This cut and colour would, of course, be cheaper without an Olaplex treatment and the application of an extra toner, as this client requested.

We also recommended that the client uses silver shampoo to ensure the lighter hair colouring stays bright, as well as cancelling out any brassy tones that may develop once the toner starts to wash out.

We also provided a Blondifier resurfacing and illuminating hair masque to use as a conditioner – this has been developed specifically for blonde hair, and is a superb hair conditioning product for adding in moisture removed by bleach.

The client also had a full and free hair consultation with one of our expert hair colourists in Bristol before proceeding with this transformational hairstyling.

NEW Hair colouring service for sun-lightened hair in Bristol

It’s been an amazing Summer, but we’re now starting to see more and more clients coming to our Bristol hair salon with sun lightened hair issues, looking for help, advice and hair colouring support to bring back their natural colour.

The good news is – we have a service for this, and offer a new hair colouring service for sun-lightened hair, and the ‘before’ and ‘after results below are truly stunning:

hair colouring sun lightened hair Bristol

sun lightened hair treatments in Bristol

The Summer 2018 heatwave has left many clients visiting our Baldwin Street hair salon with hair that looks bleached and washed out after weeks of intense sun. The issue has been to put the clients’ natural hair colour in for them.

We offer a free hair consultation for all of our clients, especially those looking to utilise our expert hair colouring services, to ensure that the right tone, blend and hair colour mix is delivered to them during their visit to our styling team.

When it comes to restoring natural colouring to sun-lightened hair, we start by looking at the level and extent of sun damage caused to the hair, roots, and the overall condition of the hair and scalp after intense heat exposure.

When it comes to providing our hair colouring service to sun-lightened hair, we focus on applying highlights in to the roots if needed, to bring the roots to their natural colour.

Part of the hair colouring process on sun-lightened and sun-damaged hair often involves applying lowlights on to the ends, after washing them out.

This simple but effective hair colour service to hair roots and hair ends is perfect for re-establishing the hair’s overall natural colour, as well as providing a refresh of natural colour at the end of the Summer season for tired hair.

A half-head colour will usually take between 30-45 minutes, with 30 minutes’ processing time for hair colouring applied. A cut and blow dry usually comes afterwards, giving a total chair time of roughly 1.5 hours, depending on length of hair and condition of roots. Ask for further details during your consultation.

We also recommend that clients with sun-lightened or sun-damaged hair consider giving their hair additional moisture, to re-build the integrity of the hair, the roots, the scalp, and to promote better hair health overall.

Clients can also get a fantastic new hair moisturizing treatment too – read this blog post to find out details on this great deal.

We also offer a superb range of Summer hair care products in the Solar Sublime range – please visit here to find out more.

Our Bristol Hairdressing Blog has handy hints, tips and hair care advice, as well as the latest products our expert team of hair colourists use and recommend – visit here to find out more.
