Baldwin Street salon increases training and skills during lockdown

The Covid-19 outbreak has provided Aidan Garlington Hair Design with a good opportunity as a leading Baldwin Street salon to increase training and skills during lockdown.

Creative Director and salon Founder Aidan Garlington also recently completed a Barbicide online-based training course, focusing on disinfecting the salon and keeping clients and stylists safe.

This initiative will be fully implemented when our Baldwin Street salon re-opens, and is part of a wider training regime for salons to utilise when operating post-lockdown, in terms of minimising the risk of Covid-19 spreading within the salon. Client and staff safety will be the top priority.

And while we’re all staying safe and maintaining guidelines around social distancing, a few weeks before the lockdown was announced, Aidan attended a full-day training course on the client experience in salon, organised by L’Oreal. You can read all about this fantastic event here.

The last few weeks have been useful in accessing online resources for our team as experienced and qualified central Bristol hairdressers, too.

One of the best web-based knowledge hubs we’ve come across and have been utilising is L’Oreal Access, an inspirational hub of hints, tips, resources and an incredible learning space for stylists in Bristol and the wider UK.

We’ve been blown away by L’Oreal Access – find out more here.

One of the most important things for us is to pass on our knowledge, experience and passion for hairdressing to our clients. This is particularly relevant at the moment, with clients having to try and manage their hair and hair health at home during lockdown.

Some of the recent blog posts we’ve published for clients to help them with hair care and other issues in lockdown across Bristol have included:

Hair care advice during lockdown.

Hair colouring hints in lockdown.

Low-maintenance hairstyles to try in lockdown.

Online ordering of hair care products in lockdown.

We’ve also had lots of clients emailing and calling to discuss related issues and queries, and we’re here to help until the salon can safely re-open.

We always put training and skills at the top of our priorities as a central Bristol salon, and the ongoing dedication to training will continue long after we see the back of Covid-19 in Bristol.

If you have any queries about the best ways to take care of your hair in lockdown, please feel free to get in touch with the experienced hairstylists at our Baldwin Street salon here.

Low maintenance hairstyles to try in Bristol over Covid-19 lockdown

We’ve had a few clients emailing our Baldwin Street salon this week asking for the best low maintenance hairstyles to try during Bristol lockdown, so we thought it would be useful to also write a dedicated blog post on the subject.

The main consideration is the condition of hair, and low maintenance hairstyles that simply hold hair up are also ideal for utilising additional hair treatments and hair masques as you get on with your day at home.

Protecting hair integrity without having too much focus on hairstyling is our advice, as well as going for simple looks that hold hair up.

When it comes to putting hair up, we also recommend not using tight rubber bands, but going for hair-friendly accessories instead such InvisiBobbles.

With root colours coming through during Bristol lockdown, it’s also a good time to play around with different looks, including putting up hair in different styles such as Zig-Zag Partings and sweeping the hair across rather than leaving it as a straight parting, to help disguise roots coming through.

Simple and easy low maintenance hairstyles to try include Messy Buns, Top Knots, Hair-Ups, Space Buns and Plaits. These are quick, easy and versatile hairstyling options, which can all be done within 10-15 minutes and will keep your hair up, protected, and stress-free for you during Bristol lockdown.

Our team of hairstyling experts in Bristol will be on hand and ready to help you in-salon when the lockdown lifts across the region, but until then we recommend keeping it simple with styling and focusing on hair condition.

If you have any other low maintenance hairstyle questions, please feel free to get in touch with our central Bristol hairdressers here during lockdown.

Looking for hair colouring help during Bristol lockdown? Read this!

With the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak across the UK, many clients have been in touch recently and are worried about hair colouring help during the Bristol lockdown.

Luckily, we have a few secrets to share, including this miracle Root Concealer product to use called L’Oreal Hair Touch Up.

hair colouring help Bristol lockdown

As part of the L’Oreal Professional range, Hair Touch Up Root Concealer is a fantastic and versatile product, designed to give quick and easy hair colouring help during difficult times when a visit to our Bristol hair salon isn’t possible.

Whilst some clients might be tempted to try a box dye, it’s worth remembering that our team of hair colouring stylists on Baldwin Street know our clients exact hair colour, so utilising a Root Concealer product from us means that we can also get the closest possible match to your actual hair colour.

If you’re worried about your hair colouring at this time, we would advise that the most important consideration is in fact the condition not colour of your hair. Maintaining hair health and integrity is the biggest priority right now.

Many clients are also growing out hair, and trying new and different hairstyling at the moment, and hairstyling around the fringes, for example, can go a long way to hiding fading hair colouring for certain hair types and hairstyles.

We really love L’Oreal Hair Touch Up Root Concealer, and at only £9 it’s a real bargain for those looking to boost their hair colouring around the roots.

This simple spray is perfect to cover up hair colours going, and lasts from one shampoo to the next. It’s only £9, and can be ordered from our salon through the contact link below. We’ll then have it posted out directly to your home.

If you have any other hair colouring questions, please feel free to get in touch with our Baldwin street hairdressers here during lockdown.

How our central Bristol hair salon is addressing Corona Virus

It’s been a difficult and testing few weeks across the city, and we wanted to highlight how our central Bristol hair salon is addressing Corona Virus.

We’re carefully monitoring the Government’s daily briefings regarding Corona Virus, and taking all recommended health and hygiene measures in-salon.

We have also introduced the following measures for stylists and clients:

Hand sanitizer, water and paper towels are available at each column, as well as in our bathroom, to allow clients and stylists to regularly wash their hands.

Social distancing measures in place throughout the salon, with the recommended two-metre distance between each column in use.

We are sanitising door handles, till areas and card machine at regular intervals during the day, as well as rigorous cleaning of the salon daily.

Each column is sanitised after each client, as well as our backwash area.

All towels and gowns are washed after each use, to ensure full cleanliness.

Magazines and newspapers have been removed to reduce germ contact.

Cash payments have been halted at this time, with card payments and contactless payments being utilised until further notice.

Any of our stylists who have been in contact with someone who has, or is suspected of being infected with Corona Virus, will self-isolate at home for the recommended 14-day period with immediate effect.

We would also ask that any clients who are feeling unwell, or who are showing any potential symptoms, who are currently in self-isolation, who have come into contact with a suspected Corona Virus case, or who have travelled overseas in the last 14 days to re-schedule your next appointment with us by ringing the salon direct on 0117 376 3248.

To find out more about Corona Virus, and the measures being recommended by the NHS to combat it, please visit here.

These are testing and troubling times, but our priority is the health and well-being of our stylists and clients. We will remain open until advised otherwise by the Government, and are sending our very best wishes to the whole city.

It’s been an exciting month so far, with Baldwin Street hairdresser Aidan Garlington investing in a training programme to take clients to hair heaven.

The recent L’Oreal training day, entitled ‘Seven steps to wow a client’ was held at the Marriott Royal on College Green, and was attended by a number of hair salon owners from across the South West, including Creative Director Aidan Garlington from our very own Aidan Garlington Hair Design.

The education was focused around new ways to wow clients, as well as discussing the client journey in-salon, how to provide an even better hairdressing experience, the ways social media can benefit clients, and how Bristol hair salons can be more sustainable in 2020 and beyond.

How many different ways can a Bob hairstyle be worn in Bristol?

How many different ways can a Bob hairstyle be worn in Bristol? Well, we’ve had a couple of clients asking this question recently, so we thought we’d write a blog post about it.

Bob hairstyling in central Bristol at Aidan Garlington Hair Design

A classic Bob haircut is often seen as one of the simplest but most stylish hairstyles for women visiting our Baldwin Street hair salon in central Bristol.

It’s effective, stylish, classic, and extremely versatile when worked well.

One of the emerging trends during 2019, and which our team of expert Bristol hairstylists expect to see continuing into 2020, is clients looking to get the same cut but to wear it in many different ways.

So, for example, with a Bob haircut from our team, there are many different ways in which the haircut can be styled to deliver different looks, such as:

Waves

Curls

Straight

Tousled

Night Glam

A hairstyle such as this can provide endless looks, as well as being simple to maintain with regular visits to your hair salon every six weeks or so.

A Bob haircut at our central Bristol studio costs from £36 ranging up to £49.50, for the cut and blow-dry, depending on the stylist working with you.

Full and free hair consultations are given to all of our hairdressing clients, and we also give comprehensive advice on the best products and styling equipment to utilise in maintaining a gorgeous Bob throughout the year.

So, if you’re thinking ‘New Year, New Hair’ why not consider trying a versatile cut and style that can give you a variety of daytime and evening looks?

To find out more about the hottest hairstyles for this year, please visit our Bristol Hairdressing News here.

What’s the hottest hairstyle in Bristol for Autumn? Try a Caramel Balayage

We’ve had a few clients asking this week to advise them on what’s the hottest hairstyle in Bristol for Autumn this year. We recommend a Caramel Balayage.

Bristol caramel balayage

This is a fantastic seasonal hairstyle for Autumn months, and the warm, rich caramel brown hair colouring really works well in the run-up to Christmas.

A Caramel Balayage is a great hair colouring option for clients with grown-out roots and worn-out colour in their hair. It’s the perfect soft hair colour for Autumn, and our team have delivered some stunning results recently.

best balayage Bristol

The Caramel Balayage are freehand highlights, applied by one of our central Bristol hair colouring team, to give a warm and natural Autumn hair colour.

We recommend and use L’Oreal Studio 9 Levels, which gives up to nine levels of hair colour lift. We also use a Platinum Pre-Lightener as required.

The colour application takes between 90 minutes to two hours, with the cut and blowdry adding a further 60 minutes to the total time in-salon with us.

The price for a gorgeous Caramel Balayage ranges from £75-£170. For further details, ask one of our expert team during your free hair consultation.
