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.

Bristol hair stylist competes in national hair colouring competition

We’re really excited to announce this week that our team member and Bristol hair stylist Lisa will be competing in a national hair colouring competition.

Bristol hair stylist hair colouring

Lisa has 14 years’ hairdressing experience and specialises in hair colouring, wedding hair, hair extensions and Afro hairstyling.

She has already gained specialist hair colouring qualifications from L’Oreal, as well as successfully completing her NVQ Level 3 in Hairdressing with flying colours in the past.

The L’Oreal Colour Trophy competition has been running in the UK for over 60 years, and is one of the most prestigious British hairdressing competitions.

There are four main categories in the hair colouring competition, and hair colouring experts will be competing from across the country to win awards.

The judging of this year’s competition will be conducted by more than 50 top-level hairdressers and hair colouring gurus from around the world, and is set to be one of the most exciting hairdressing competitions of the year.

Talking about this year’s upcoming competition, Lisa commented:

“I’ve always aspired to enter Colour Trophy. I love hair colouring because it’s possible to transform a hairstyle in a relatively short space of time. The competition is going to be really exciting but also very nerve-wracking!”

Our team of central Bristol hairstylists will be supporting Lisa, and wishing her every success during the 2019 competition. We’ll be updating blog readers on how she fares in coming weeks as well.
