Special event this Summer? Visit our central Bristol hairstylists first!

The team of central Bristol hairstylists at our Baldwin Street hair salon have seen a few new and interesting client visits this Summer, and we wanted to dedicate a blog post to showcasing some of our extra hairdressing services.

Central Bristol hairstylists

We recently had new clients visiting from Ireland, who were staying in a central Bristol hotel and attending a University graduation. They’d typed ‘Prom Hair and Hair-ups in central Bristol’ into Google, found one of our previous blog posts, and booked in for last-minute hairstyling with the team.

There was also a group of ladies visiting Bristol for the weekend to see the sights including the Wallace & Gromit Trail, and they wanted to discuss Hair-Up options with us for their big Saturday night out on the town.

We have also provided temporary hair chalk for clients visiting Bristol, which wash out after three shampoos but give a vibrant fun new hair colour for a short period of time. Ask in-salon for further details on this new service.

We are seeing more clients visiting the salon during weekends away to Bristol, as well as wedding parties, and other special anniversary events.

We’ve had a number of new clients coming in to see us for various hairstyling and hairdressing services such as our Styling Bar.

Our team of experienced and friendly Bristol hairstylists can provide a range of versatile and low-cost hairdressing services, including cuts, blow-dry, and styling – including good-to-go quick hair curling, if the client comes into the salon with hair washed and ready for us to work our magic on for them.

Solar Sublime Summer hair care products at our Bristol hair salon

Our clients have been asking for recommendations on Summer hair care products available at our Bristol hair salon on Baldwin Street, and we’ve got two fantastic products from the Solar Sublime range for this year.

Summer hair care products Bristol

The hotter weather is a potential hazard, as many clients can get sun-damaged hair, dried-out and dehydrated as well as chemical damage from chlorine in swimming pools.

The Solar Sublime range is designed specifically to provide hair care for Summer and sun protection products for clients spending time outdoors.

We highly recommend the entire range for clients to include in their holiday suitcase, and it forms an essential part of any Summer hair care regime.

This year, we have two firm favourites in the Solar Sublime range for 2018.

The first Solar Sublime product our Bristol hair care experts love is the Conditioning Spray – a light, leave-in mist formulation containing Mexoryl SO and delivering instant conditioning protection for hair during sun exposure.

It has a non-greasy texture, and helps to shield hair from drying effects whilst also leaving it looking shiny. All that’s needed is a simple spritz to improve hair protection during the Summer.

Apply onto damp or dry hair, paying particular attention to lengths and ends. Leave the conditioning spray product in and re-apply during the day as required. It’s a light product with a tropical smell, so is versatile for all clients.

The second Solar Sublime sun protection product we’re recommending to clients this Summer is the After-Sun Nourishing Balm.

This creamy and luxurious balm lavishes hair with intense post-sun protection, and also contains Mexoryl SO. It helps hair fibres to recover from heat.

Also providing UV-protection, this Nourishing Balm leaves hair feeling refreshed and hydrated after exposure to Summer sun, and our clients love it.

The Balm helps to de-tangle hair and deliver a nourishing boost at the same time. This is an absolute must for any holiday suitcase this year.

Hair moisturizing treatment offer with British Hair products in Bristol

With the warmer, drier weather upon us for Spring going into Summer, now’s the perfect time of the year to consider adding extra moisture into your hair regime, to ensure that hair doesn’t become dry, damaged or brittle and broken. And we’ve got a fantastic hair moisturizing treatment offer to help.

Hair moisturizing treatment Bristol

British Hair Moisture Intensive products are our favourites to use for hair moisturizing treatments, and British Hair Moisture Intensive Shampoo is an excellent starting point to protect your hair from Summer heat.

It’s a nourishing, strengthening and repairing cleanser containing Botani-H complex, as well as keratin and sunflower seed extract to help protect and repair damaged hair, as well as hydrating, controlling frizzy hair, smoothing out cuticles and delivering a unique colour lock formula for hair too.

Using it couldn’t be simpler, either. The hair moisturizing treatment service involves applying a small amount to wet hair, massaging gently into scalp and working up to a lather, then rinsing with warm water.

The second element to our hair moisturizing treatment in Bristol involves applying British Hair Moisture Masque, to fully protect and enrich the hair against hotter drier Summer weather.

The Moisture Masque helps to restore moisture levels in the hair, as well as increasing hair strength, protecting and repairing chemically-treated hair, whilst also being paraben and sulphate-free.

Moisture Masque helps to provide anti-frizz and anti-static, delivering a high level of Summer hair care protection against both heat and humidity.

Simply apply the Masque to partially-dried hair from root to ends, and leave in for roughly five minutes. For dry, damaged hair, our hairstylists leave the Masque for up to 10 minutes then rinse. Adding heat intensifies the treatment.

The British Hair Moisture Intensive Shampoo usually retails at £9.95, whilst the Moisture Masque costs £12.95 from our Baldwin Street hair salon.

We’re running a special offer on hair moisturizing treatments: simply mention this blog post, and get both British Hair in-salon for only £17, saving a full £5.

The best Spring hair care tips from our central Bristol hairstylists

With the Spring now fully upon us, more and more clients are looking for the best Spring hair care tips from our central Bristol hairdressers, so we decided to put together a round-up of our best hints and tips here on our Blog too.

recruiting at central Bristol hair salon Aidan Garlington Hair Design

The Spring can be a tricky season for clients’ hair, as the increase in humidity and sun levels can cause significant damage to hair if regular treatments and ongoing conditioning regimes aren’t maintained throughout the new season.

The team of hairstylists at our Baldwin Street hair salon firstly recommend using a conditioning masque once a week, or twice weekly if the hair is particularly damaged from Winter weather condition and drying out.

We wrote a blog post here about free Serie Expert hair treatments currently available at our Bristol hair salon.

Our Bristol hairdressers are also advising clients to give their hair regular trims to remove damaged and split ends throughout the Spring.

Spring hair care tips from Bristol hairdressers

A third handy hint for Spring hair care from our hairstylists in central Bristol involves clients changing their shampoo and conditioner to opt for a lighter hair product regime during the Spring. This can help to remove frizz and reduce associated problems during the new season. Ask in-salon for help.

Another great but simple Spring hair tip is to use a nourishing light hair care oil or serum during the next few months, to add extra moisture and conditioning to hair as it adapts and deals with changing weather conditions.

Using a fantastic hair product such as British Hair Moisturising Masque can really help improve hair condition. Read this blog post here to find out more about Moisture Masque, as well as getting a discounted deal too.

Spring hair care tips from central Bristol hairstylists

The final Spring hair care tip from our central Bristol hairstyling team is a simple one – wherever possible, allow hair to dry naturally, to prevent the damage that can be caused using hair dryers, hair curlers, hair straighteners and hair wands. Excess heat to hair can be a real problem during the Spring.

We also offer all clients a full and free hair consultation, so if you’re unsure about the condition and integrity of your hair make sure you get an expert hair care consultation form one of our stylists when you are next booked in.

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.

cetnral Bristol hairdresser Aidan Garlington

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.

Christmas hairstyles and party hair ideas from our Bristol hairdressers

It’s that time of year when all of our lovely clients are thinking about Christmas hairstyles and party hair ideas – and our Bristol hairdressers are on hand.

We’ve got a selection of seasonal hairstyles and festive haircuts to consider, so that Christmas and the office party season gives you the best hair ideas.

We’ve got our favourite festive hairstyles to share with you, starting with a Curly Blow-Dry, as highlighted below:

Christmas hairstyles from bristol hairdressers at Aidan Garlington Hair Design

The Curly Blow-Dry shown above was created by using British Hair Curl Cream, with the addition of British Hair Texture Salt Spray.

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.

Party hair ideas in Bristol from Aidan Garlington Hair Design

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.

The hair wefts are from brand name Raccoon Hair, made of 100% human hair, giving you the ability to straighten, curl, blow-dry and style as you wish.
