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.

FREE hair care resources in lockdown from Bristol hairdressers

The impact of Covid-19 has been huge for many of our clients, so we decided to write a blog post dedicated to free hair care resources in lockdown from Bristol hairdressers.

Despite our Baldwin Street salon currently being shut, we’ve got a number of online blogs, hints, tips and free advice readily available from our team of Bristol hairdressers, so clients can still get the best hair care help possible.

free hair care resources lockdown Bristol hairdressers

We’re getting emails every week from lovely clients, with a range of hair care, hair colouring, hairstyling and general hair health queries during lockdown.

Here are our most popular recent hair care resources during previous lockdowns in Bristol, containing helpful ways to keep your hair healthy.

Advice from our Bristol hairdressers on handing longer hair in lockdown

Easy access to the best hair products in Bristol lockdown

We are currently advising clients during the 2021 lockdown that the most important factor to remember is to keep hair hydrated and in condition, with moisture-based products. This is relevant for hair of any length or type.

Without moisturising and hydrating the hair and scalp on a daily basis, it’s easy to cause damage that can affect hair health for weeks or months after.

As long as hair is healthy and hydrated, our team of central Bristol hairdressers will be on hand when lockdown ends to professionally take care of all your hairstyling and hair colouring needs in our gorgeous new salon.

To find out more about any hair care resources you need during the lockdown in Bristol, please email the salon via hair@aidangarlington.co.uk and mention this blog post.

Hair care advice during Bristol lockdown from our Baldwin Street hairdressers

We’ve had a few clients getting in touch over the last few weeks wanting help and tips, so we decided to write a specific blog post about hair care advise during the Bristol lockdown from our Baldwin Street hairdressers.

central Bristol hair studio

The first thing to point out is that hair care during Bristol lockdown is essentially the same as at any other time. Our top tips for you are:

Keep hair ends in the best possible condition

Apply hair masques weekly for hydration

Cut back on hair-drying and hair straightening

Use heat protection & conditioners to stop colour fade

Let colour grow out, avoid using box hair colours

Other hair care advice from our Baldwin Street hairdressers includes don’t cut your own hair, but let it grow out and adapt using different hairstyles such as Messy Buns and Plaits. We’ll be writing an in-depth blog post on this soon.

fesitval hair ideas for 2018 in Bristol

It’s also a good time to experience with your hair, such as putting a grown-out fringe into a quiff, or brushing a fringe into a side fringe, as well as styling longer hair.

For example, a zig-zag parting is superb for breaking up hair colour as well as hiding root colour during lockdown when hair colours might well be fading.

Lots of people might be worried about their hair colour right now too, but we advise that the most important to consider during Bristol lockdown is the condition not colour of their hair. Good hair conditioning is essential.

Inverted Layered Haircut in Bristol

We also have hints and tips on root concealers, and using root re-spray products for temporary colour cover-up. A dedicated blog will follow soon.

The most important thing is to relax, let your hair grow for the time being, keep it in fantastic condition, and use simple easy hairstyling whilst at home.
