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.

Looking for the best hair extensions in Bristol? Read this!

If you’re looking for the best hair extensions in Bristol for 2020, then this blog post is just for you. We’ve got a range of options to suit every budget.

Beauty Works hair extensions in central Bristol at Aidan Garlington Hair Design

There are different types of hair extensions, all designed to give different results. The main types we offer for our Baldwin Street salon clients are:

Pre-bonded (fused)

Micro-ring

Tape-in

Clip-in

Depending on the desired result required, we have hair extensions for you, and our full and free hair extension consultation will guide you further.

hair extensions in Bristol from Aidan Garlington Hair Design

Pre-bonded hair extensions are pieces of hair with the bond already in place. They can be applied either as partial extensions, a weft of colour, or a full head of extensions. We offer Beauty Works and Racoon hair extensions.

Micro-ring hair extensions are threaded on, and can be taken out and moved up. They are low maintenance and high impact.

Partial hair extensions are perfect for thickening up hair, especially at the sides and front, as well as adding flashes of colour.

Micro-weft extensions can provide a strip of hair colour which stays in place for 6-8 weeks. They are re-useable and colours include brown, blonde, red, blue, pink and green.

If you’re looking to add length, for example, pre-bonded or micro ring hair extensions would be the best solution. If you want to add volume, then pre-bonded, micro ring, clip-in, or taped-in extensions would all work well.

To add length to the sides or for partial hair extensions, then micro ring or pre-bonded hair extensions would be our recommended solution. To add a fringe, pre-bonded hair extensions would work. For adding slices of colour, taped pre-bonded hair extensions are the ideal answer. To include hair highlights, pre bonded, micro ring or taped extensions would be advised.

Tape-in, clip-in and micro ring hair extensions can be re-used, and our hair extension stylists in central Bristol will cut and style any hair extensions to ensure that they blend in with a client’s natural hair for the best results.

Our hair extensions start from just £25 for tape-in pieces, up to £900 for bonded extensions. Prices vary according to hair length, thickness and colour.

Our central Bristol hairdressers had an amazing weekend recently, after attending Salon International 2018 and the Alternative Hair Show. Here are Creative Director Aidan with Stylists Lisa and Ashleigh outside the Show:

We were also able to pick up new high-quality hairdressing equipment to help deliver even better results for our clients.

Another of the highlights for the Aidan Garlington Hair Design stylists at the 2018 Show was to meet inspirational hair stylists, including Patrick Cameron and Trevor Sorbie, to chat about the hottest trends and upcoming styles.

We also had the pleasure of attending this year’s Alternative Hair Show, which is a focal point for raising charity cash and showcasing new styles.

The Alternative Hair Show raises money and awareness for fighting leukemia, and has raised a massive amount of donations for associated charity work, as well as being an amazing way to see cutting edge new hairstyles and colours.

The themes of the Alternative Hair show also help to provide inspiration for our styling team back in the central Bristol hair salon for the coming year.

This year, we were amazed to see the huge variety of hairstyles showcased from around the world, as well as seeing different shapes and colours. This all helps our Bristol hairdressing team to deliver exciting new styles for clients.

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.

Central Bristol hairstylists at Aidan Garlington Hair Design

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.
