What’s the difference between hairdressing and barbering in Bristol?

One of the questions we often get asked by new clients visiting our Baldwin Street hair salon is what’s the difference between hairdressing and barbering in Bristol, and new male clients in particular are keen to find out more.

gents hairdressing services central Bristol

When we get new male clients visiting our central Bristol salon for the first time, they’re often passing trade due to our location or alternatively because we’ve been recommended to them by an existing client of ours.

The question about hairdressing and barbering is a good one, because as a unisex hair salon in central Bristol, we’ve seen more and more male clients visiting us in 2018 to utilise our barbering and gents’ hairdressing services.

gents hairdressing in central bristol at Aidan Garlington Hair Design

We give all clients (male and female) a full and free hair consultation before carrying out any cutting, and this gives a new client the opportunity to talk through their current look, any inspiration they want to bring to a new look, as well as chatting to our team of friendly and experienced hair stylists in detail.

The world of barbering has traditionally been scene as quite one-dimensional from outside the hair industry. Barbering has been viewed as simply about clipper haircuts, a short back and sides delivered in 10 minutes, and then a repeat visit every few weeks to trim the hair with clippers again for a guy.

This, of course, isn’t the case at our hair salon, and our male clients enjoy the same level of consultation, creative cutting and hair product advice that our female clients enjoy when they visit us.

men's Summer haircuts in Bristol

Our hairdressing services involve a full hair consultation every time, a high level of client education around hairdressing and product knowledge, scissor cuts and professional hair styling for men. It’s a top-level experience.

Not just that, but our pricing structure for barbering services is flexible too, rather than trying to offer a one-stop-shop approach as some salons do.

We price our gents’ hairdressing services based on the experience level of our stylist delivering the service. So, for example, our barbering services are currently priced at three levels: £19.50, £21.50 and £24, and isn’t dependent on the amount of time in the chair when a male client visits us.

We pride ourselves on the level of male hairdressing education and men’s hair product knowledge we pass on, too, and are regularly posting male-centric blog posts for the benefit of our growing male client audience.

We also have male and female stylists, so the choice is up to you when you visit our Baldwin Street hair salon in terms of who works with you on your hair.

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:

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.

Haircut of the Month in Bristol – Full Undercut

With such a gorgeous Summer so far, many of the clients visiting our Baldwin Street hair salon have been asking for a super-stylish, manageable, low-maintenance hairstyle for this hot weather.

Our advice is to opt for a Full Undercut, as this on-trend hairstyle provides a stunning look which is functional, fashionable, and easy to wear, such as the Full Undercut example below from a recent client visit to our central Bristol Undercut hairstylists.

haircut Bristol Undercut

Delivering a classic Full Undercut hairstyle is one of our most popular Summer hairstyles in Bristol, and our clients love the results.

We start with a shampoo and wash the hair, then lightly towel dry and section out. The Undercut is then put into the hair and we work the shape over the top.

The hair is shaped when damp and personalized to each client’s individual face shape, to create just the right Undercut hairstyle result for them.

As a seasonal hairstyle, the Undercut has been trending this Summer in particular – probably because it’s a great way to remove long hair during hotter weather. A versatile look, with a trendy shape, but also practical.

A Full Undercut leaves the hair in great condition, looking fantastic and is highly manageable when going on Summer holidays.

Typically, an Undercut Hairstyle takes around one hour for the cut and blow-dry, and costs range from £33 to £39.50 or £46.50, depending on the level of stylist providing the service. Ask in-salon for further details when you book.

What are the top men’s haircut trends for Summer 2018 in Bristol?

A few of our male hairdressing clients were chatting this week about the top men’s haircuts for Summer 2018 in Bristol, so we decided to write a blog post about what we think will be the hottest looks for men this year.

men's haircut trends Summer 2018 Bristol

We recently wrote a blog post about the latest trends in gents’ hairdressing in Bristol – visit here to find out more.

One of the most popular Summer haircuts for men at our central Bristol hair salon remains the Textured Crop Haircut.

The crop has been a haircut that’s remained popular for over 12 months, and our central Bristol hairdressers expect to see more men going for it this Summer. The biggest factor is texture throughout plus choosing either a blunt fringe or choppy, textured look. We offer a full and free consultation to men.

men's Summer haircuts in Bristol

Another popular men’s haircut will be the Short Textured Quiff Haircut – particularly after the change by David Beckham from longer locks to a low-maintenance men’s haircut for the Summer.

It’s a versatile Summer hairstyle for men who want a shorter cut but also a hairstyle that doesn’t need too much work in the morning. It works best with texture and a loose, unstructured look.

A third favourite men’s hairstyle for Summer will be the Classic Short Back & Sides Haircut, which is perfect for office workers looking for a stylish cut.

Best Summer haircuts for men in Bristol

This look has made a big comeback recently, particularly after films such as Dunkirk and Harry Styles wearing this look with dramatic effect in the movie.

We recommend using a matte clay or paste product to style this look, but it can also be upgraded with a low fade or taper on the sides to modernise it.

One of the favourite Summer hairstyles for men in Bristol is also a Natural Side Parting Haircut, which is effectively a twist on the classic side parting.

best Summer haircuts for men in Bristol

It’s the perfect smart haircut for Summer for men, and is a great look for guys who want to look smart but with a natural and relaxed look. Using a medium-strength matte paste to style this men’s hairstyle produces the best look.

Men with Long and Wavy Hair will also be another popular choice at our Bristol hair salon, as Summer weather is good for longer, loose styling.

Summer hairstyles for guys in Bristol

The skin fades of 2017 have moved more towards longer locks during the Winter months, and we’ve seen that male hairdressing clients are now looking to go for a more relaxed and tousled look if their hair is longer or very curly.

Using a sea salt spray is the best way to enhance natural curls and long hair.

Another fantastic men’s hairstyle to watch out for this Summer in Bristol will be the Soft Undercut, first made popular in 2016 with Brad Pitt in the hit movie Fury. It’s a great men’s haircut to match up with a long beard.

Utilising a clean fade on the side and back provides a smart casual look that’s really versatile at both the office and the beach.

Our Bristol hairdressers can guide and advise on the best men’s Summer haircut to match your face shape, hair type, and hair regime.
