Check out the latest Autumn hair trends in Bristol for 2021

Our Baldwin Street hairdressers have been looking at the latest Autumn hair trends in Bristol for 2021, so we thought it would be good to dedicate a blog post to the subject.

popular bristol hairstyles

Autumn hair trends in Bristol is a topic many of our clients have been asking us about recently. It’s going to be a season of gorgeous hairstyles for 2021.

We’ve already written about the hottest Autumn hair colours for this year, and some of our top Autumn hairstyle predictions include:

Classic Bob

The humble but classic Bob is an Autumn hairstyle favourite in Bristol in one form or another, and 2021 will be no different when it comes to seeing this.

There will be a new lease of life for the Classic Bob in Bristol for Autumn.

We predict that the chunkier box Bob will reign supreme this year, so ask one of our Bristol hairdressing team about the best Bob hairstyle for your face.

Fabulous Fringes

This year has seen huge demand for fringes, and our central Bristol hairstylists don’t envisage Bangs disappearing during the Autumn months.

Choppy and strong fringes are going to be popular in Bristol over the remainder of 2021, and we expect to see blunt, side-swept styles aplenty.

Ask the team at our Baldwin Street salon about styling for fringes on your next visit.

Wet-Look Waves

This simple but glamourous autumn hairstyle will be hot for 2021 in Bristol.

Wet-Look Waves are a perfect hairstyle for attending special events and looking effortlessly cool. Our central Bristol hairstylists love this look.

Mixing a hair shine and shine cream will help to create a stunning Wet-Look Wave. Ask in-salon for further information on the best products to use.

Marvellous Mullets

The Mullet was possibly one of the most talked-about hairstyles of 2021, and we expect to see seasonal variations on this theme for Autumn.

A good Autumn Mullet will be styled and dried to protect the hair against the ravages of Autumn weather, rather than the popular shaggy and textured Mullets of the Summer months.

Ask the stylists at our central Bristol hair studio for advice on an Autumn Mullet.

What are the most popular Autumn hair colours in Bristol for 2021?

The Summer is officially over, and here at Aidan Garlington Hair Design, we’ve had a number of clients asking our team of Baldwin Street hairstylists what are the most popular Autumn hair colours in Bristol for 2021.

copper red hair colouring Bristol 2020

October through to January has traditionally been a time when Autumn hair colours in Bristol lean towards copper reds, deep browns and colour-mixed brunettes.

For the upcoming season, our Baldwin Street hair colouring team in Bristol predict the following top Autumnal hair colours will be the most popular:

Copper Red

This is a strong and sassy seasonal hair colour for Autumn, and our Bristol clients love the Copper Reds our hair colourists deliver this look.

Copper and Red were really hot Autumn hair colours in 2020 on their own, and we expect both colours to blend together beautifully this year.

Bronde

Blonde and brown together might sound strange at first, but this is a really strong Autumn hair colour, and clients will love the result when they see it.

Bronde provides a subtle lifting or darkening (as required depending on the client’s natural hair colour) as well as being a low-maintenance hair colour.

Espresso Brunette

This is a classy Autumn hair colour and has been made popular recently by Meghan Markle. It gives a subtle seasonal shine with depth and warmth.

After years of seeing balayage and blonde dominating, many brunettes are going with a simple but beautiful rich, deep espresso brown.

Chocolate Brown

Autumn hair colours that remain popular will always include some form of Chocolate Brown. and 2021 is no different at our Bristol hair studio.

This year, clients wanting to keep their seasonal hair colouring low-key but add a little sparkle to a brunette base colour will opt for this stunning look.

We request that all clients complete a skin patch test 48 hours before any hair colouring service at our Baldwin Street salon, and we continue to follow all requirements recommended by the Government before the end of the last lockdown, to ensure we provide clients with a Covid-safe salon in Bristol.

So we thought it would be a good time of the year to devote a blog post on the best ways to keep hair moisturised and hydrated in the Summer heat.

advice bristol hairdressers hair hydration summer

Our team of hair care experts in central Bristol recommend using high-quality hair hydration products and treatments on a regular basis throughout the year.

Hair can get dried out, brittle and damaged at any time, but it is generally more prone to this in the warmer, drier, hotter months of Summer.

Our top three in-salon hair hydration products for 2021 are:

Moroccan Oil Repair Shampoo & Conditioner set

As one of the most popular brands in the world for hair hydration and hair care products, Moroccan Oil is a well-trusted name at our Bristol salon.

Moroccan Oil Repair Shampoo and Conditioner sets have been one of the best-selling combination packs to be stocked at our Baldwin Street salon.

Summer 2021 hair trends in Bristol from our Baldwin Street hairdressers

Having got through a year of self-maintenance and home haircuts, it’s great to be able to review Summer 2021 hair trends in Bristol from our Baldwin Street hairdressers.

And whereas last Summer was minimalist, the Summer 2021 hair trends in Bristol will be maximalist, with face-framing fringes, 70s-inspired hairstyling, modern takes on classic cuts and exciting new bold hair colours.

Spring hairstyles in Bristol

Some of the hottest Summer hairstyles will include Mullets, Bangs, Bobs and Layered Shags.

Whilst many clients prefer to go for shorter hair during the warmer Summer months, other clients prefer to keep some length to enhance styling options.

A Pixie Cut or Sharp Bob are great for keeping the neck cool in the sun, but sometimes it can also be good to consider the length a Layered Shag or Mullet can offer.

We’re going to see more clients going for a not-too-short and not-too-long hair length, with a rise in mid-length hairstyle requests as Summer progresses.

The ever-popular mid-length chop ‘Hot Girl Bob’ is a favourite with our clients, whilst a chunky 70s Mullet, Layered Shag with a curtain fringe are also options for Summer 2021.

Layered Shag:

This simple and versatile Summer hairstyle has made a massive comeback, with a rise in popularity across Bristol.

A heavy fringe with length on the sides delivers shape and style.

70’s Mullet:

The rise of the Mullet has been widely publicised in the Press by celebrities bringing back this iconic look.

This Summer, this hairstyle will be popular as the Mullet gives a strong image across the city for many clients to get back to basics.

Hot Girl Bob:

A Bob haircut is always a favourite Summer hairstyle in Bristol, and this year the variety of Bob hairstyles will be superb.

We can, of course, advise you on the best type of Bob hairstyle to match your face shape. A Hot Girl Bob retains mid-length and easy maintenance.

Half & Half Colour:

The release of Hollywood Movie Cruella has seen clients asking for half and half hair colours, and our hair colouring experts on Baldwin Street can help.

We predict that this Summer will see experimental hair colours becoming popular, with reds and greens being popular from now until September.

We strongly recommend that any clients who have not yet booked a hair appointment for July to get in touch by either ringing the salon on 0117 376 3248 or email us at hair@aidangarlington.co.uk.

Looking for a hair colour correction service in Bristol? Read this!

After a hectic few weeks following the lifting of lockdown, we’ve had a number of clients asking for a hair colour correction service in Bristol.

Our Covid-safe Bristol hair salon has been inundated with client queries on hair colour in the last three weeks.

So we thought it would be helpful to write a blog post from our Baldwin Street hair colouring experts to share some insights into the hair colour correction process.

most popular hairstyle Bristol Spring

In a nutshell, hair colour correction involves removing undesirable hair colour. It can be the result of hair colouring growing out or a hair colour service that’s gone wrong.

Hair colour correction involves either toning out unwanted hair brassiness, dying the hair darker, or lightening hair to achieve the required colour.

A hair colour correction service with our central Bristol hairdressers will often require removing unwanted hair colour and starting a new process for a client.

A good example of a hair colour correction will be to colour hair from red to brown or to turn dark hair to pink. Tone and depth of hair colour are vital.

If blonde hair colour is slightly brassy or a brunette is showing too much red, a toner service might be able to rectify this with a low-impact correction.

A hair colour correction service, however, may take weeks to get the right look for a client. It is a highly bespoke hair colour correction service.

A hair colour correction service can be difficult for fragile or damaged hair, so consultation with one of our Baldwin Street hairstylists is a critical step.

For some hair types and hair colours, the hair colour correction process can take two or three appointments.

Factors such as hair type, hair texture, hair condition, existing hair colour, and the choice of toner to be used all play a part in the time period needed.

We strongly recommend that any clients who have not yet secured a hair colour correction service appointment for June get in touch by either ringing the salon on 0117 376 3248 or email us at hair@aidangarlington.co.uk.

What are the most popular Bristol hairstyles after lockdown?

Many clients visiting our Baldwin Street salon are asking our team what are the most popular Bristol hairstyles after lockdown.

So we thought we’d write a blog post to highlight the hottest hairstyles and most popular hair trends and lengths following our central Bristol studio opening its doors again following government guidance.

most popular bristol hairstyles

Many clients have become bored with their old look in lockdown, or have become frustrated to see their hair length getting beyond comfortable.

Other clients, however, have embraced longer hair, but were struggling to style and condition it in lockdown, and have asked our team for advice.

After the first lockdowns of 2020 in Bristol, we noted that a large number of clients decided to grow their hair, and wanted advice on maintaining longer hair after lockdown.

We’re also seeing that clients who are keeping length are going for shorter layers reminiscent of Shag and Mullet hairstyles from the seventies.

Following the lifting of the 2021 lockdown, however, we are seeing more clients deciding to now go shorter than usual, with precision haircuts.

In particular, easy-to-care-for hairstyles are proving popular recently with crops and short bobs being the most popular hairstyles in Bristol.

We wrote a blog post about why a Bob haircut is popular in Bristol that’s worth reading.

It highlights the versatility and ease of care which is the signature of any good Bob haircut.

Crops haircuts and Short Bob haircuts are popular in Spring and Summer with clients, as they require minimal attention and maintenance.

We offer precision haircuts at our Baldwin Street hair salon such as crops and Bobs for £49.50 which also includes a cut and blow-dry.

We strongly recommend that any clients who have not yet secured an appointment for May to get in touch by either ringing the salon on 0117 376 3248 or email us at hair@aidangarlington.co.uk.

New Covid-safe central Bristol hair salon now open for business

We’re really pleased to announce that our brand spanking new Covid-safe central Bristol hair salon is open for business after the last 2021 lockdown.

The team of Baldwin Street hairdressers at our new Aidan Garlington Hair Design central Bristol hair studio are raring to go from Monday 12 April.

free hair care resources Bristol hairdressers

The new salon, which is still on Baldwin Street where our original salon was based for 10 years, gives a luxurious, modern and Covid-safe hairdressing experience in central Bristol for a wide range of clients.

Although we were fitting out the new salon and were ready to officially launch at the start of the year, the latest Covid-19 lockdown in January halted the exciting new hair salon being available to our clients.

We have the same previous high level of Covid-safe measures in place throughout the salon, as well as a brand new ventilation and extraction fan system in place, to ensure a consistent flow of fresh air.

We are still wearing face masks and visors, as well as extended cleaning and sanitising times after each appointment has been completed.

We also request that any client who has not had hair colouring services with us for over six months will be required to have a fresh skin patch test taken.

Under the current regulations, we are able to welcome a husband and wife bubble into the salon now and are continuing to operate track and trace, with either a QR code scan or manual sign-in upon being welcomed into the salon for each appointment.

Bookings for our hairdressing and hair colouring services are obviously booking up extremely quickly. We anticipate a very hectic 6-8 weeks!

We strongly recommend that any clients who have not yet secured an appointment for May to get in touch by either ringing the salon on 0117 376 3248 or email us at hair@aidangarlington.co.uk.

Bristol hairdressers unveil the hottest hair colours for Spring 2021

The seasons are changing and we’ve had so many clients emailing and ringing us, that our Bristol hairdressers are going to now unveil the hottest hair colouring for Spring 2021.

Whilst the overarching trend this year has been low maintenance hair colouring due to the Covid-19 restrictions forcing all Bristol hair salons to remain shut, we have a few hot hair colours to share with you from our Baldwin Street central studio.

Bristol hair colours Spring 2021

So, what are the hottest hair colours for Spring 2021 in Bristol?

Warm Blonde

This Spring’s top blonde hair colour in Bristol will be bright but warm. Warm Blonde is a fantastic lighter hair colour to deliver in-salon, with a bright, one-tone blonde that doesn’t turn white or grey as Spring becomes Summer.

Medium Copper

Continuing from last year’s favourite hair colour Copper, Spring 2021 will see Medium Copper becoming the one to watch. It’s a new take on traditional copper hair colouring and gives a warm Spring glow to medium and dark hair shades. A medium natural copper shade will be all the rage in Bristol.

Almond Tips

As the weather warms up, we think clients will be thinking about adding soft tones to hair for this Spring. Warm nutty tones deliver a soft Spring hair colouring, and almond-type tones give hair tips a lighter edge for 2021.

Caramel Balayage

Spring 2021 is going to see a surge in demand for Caramel Balayage, as golden highlights continue to be a popular choice for our Bristol clients. The freestyle results from balayage will continue to be a big hit this year.

Perky Peach

Peach hair colours were popular back in the Autumn, and we predict that Spring 2021 will see a resurgence in demand for this eye-turning look. Peach is such a warm hair colour that gives a gorgeous glow and is really versatile.

Pastel Balayage

Clients who want slices of hair colour but not the full commitment of all-over hair colouring may well go for a Pastel Balayage in Bristol this Spring. Colour is painted on selected pieces of hair. It’s a high-maintenance but gorgeous look.

We are currently offering free online hair consultations during the lockdown, so if you’re unsure which hair colour would suit you best for Spring 2021, just get in touch with us to discuss your seasonal hair colouring needs in detail.
