Spring hair colour trends from our Bristol hairdressers

The lighter, brighter days are with us, and that means it is time to share the Spring hair colour trends from our Bristol hairdressers.

best Summer hairstyles Bristol 2019

As the weather gets hotter and warmer, traditionally hair colours move towards lighter tones and fresh new tones including blonde and pastel shades.

Some of the Spring hair colour trends our Bristol hairdressers think will be ones to watch in 2022 include:

Monroe Blonde

This has roared back into vogue this year, with celebrities helping to push it into the spotlight once more.

Monroe Blonde is a fluffy, retro shade of blonde which is old Hollywood, full of neutral non-brassy lightness. It’s airy, light and just right for Spring in Bristol.

Nectar Blonde

This honey blonde hair colour delivers a super gold tone which catches the sun superbly, as well as provides gloss and shine.

Nectar Blonde is a specific shade of blonde that contains a yellow-gold tone.

Mahogany Blonde

The Mahogany Blonde is an earthier version of a Strawberry Blonde, with a coper and gold element finished off with a touch of rose.

It is a warm and flattering hair colour suiting many skin tones and the copper shade will prove to be popular this Spring.

Sherbet Blonde

Pastel hair colours are always popular in Spring, and the Sherbet Blonde is no exception.

Sherbet hair can be any pastel colour and works well on hair already blonde. We recommend candyfloss, pink, soft peach and lavender.

We offer a full and free hair colour consultation to all clients and have a huge number of Spring hair colour options for clients to choose from.

What are the most popular Spring hairstyles in Bristol for 2022?

The season has changed and many clients visiting Aidan Garlington Hair Design are asking us for advice on the most popular Spring hairstyles in Bristol for 2022.

free hair care resources Bristol hairdressers

Our Baldwin Street hairdressers have a selection of Spring hairstyles that are proving popular for 2022, including:

Wet Waves

This seasonal style is for long hair and is styled in an unstructured way with a natural wave.

Blunt lines are softened with the focus being on natural waves in the hair. Some clients may consider hair extensions to get an extra element of length.

A good quality curling tong can provide a curl boost in the hair to deliver fluffy elongated waves.

Minimalist Hair

This Spring hairstyle is perfect for clients with fine, thin hair.

Minimalist Hair centres upon loose, unstructured hair with thinner textured ends and a sleek simple finish. It works especially well with sharp parting.

Sometimes referred to as ‘barely there hair’ this look is all about simplicity with subtle, fine woven high or low lights depending on the natural hair colour.

Bang Bob

The Bang Bob is a new take on the French Bob but with an extra focus on the fringe area.

Layers are kept to a minimum with a sharp right angle connecting the fringe and bob length. The shorter the fringe, the bolder the end result on this look.

The Bang Bob is a strong hairstyle, and works equally well blow-dried and straightened, or left to dry naturally.

Mixie

A Spring hairstyle that is all about layers, with the fusion of a Mullet and a Pixie Cut.

An alternative style, it’s sharp and sassy and perfect for a fresh new Spring look. The central element is a choppy, textured all-over layered cut.

Length is left around the neck to work in the Mullet style, with a similar length framing the face. This is going to be a very popular look this Spring.

Botox Hair

This Spring style works on any hair length longer than the chin and is a simple but stunning look.

All the hair is swept up into a tight bun sitting on the crown of the head. Hair is combed back tightly in a line that continues from the cheekbones to give a snatched (or botoxed) look.

Botox Hair is a sleek and sharp style that requires strong hold styling gel to comb the hair up and back, then secured with a hair elastic at the crown.

Advice on hair restyling in 2022 from our Bristol hairdressers

We’ve been getting clients asking for advice on hair restyling in 2022 from our Bristol hairdressers.

hair restyling 2022 bristol

With any hair restyling service at our Baldwin Street salon, client hair consultation is the key element.

Clients often bring pictures with them on their phones or from magazines, and we also look at images on Google, Pinterest and Instagram with clients.

Hair restyling is all about the suitability of a client’s hair to a particular style. We will factor in the client’s hair length, condition, thickness and colour options.

A typical hair restyle at our central Bristol salon will include shampoo and dry, cut, styled and fully personalised for each client.

A hair restyle can also include a new style, a new hair colour, or sometimes a full hair colour correction service.

When it comes to restyling hair length, we might advise taking off length or just creating a choppy funky new look in the existing hair’s length.

Hair colouring for a restyle can include chunkier highlights, a seasonal balayage, or a colour correction to create completely new hair colour.

All hair colour correction services will require a test piece of the client’s hair to confirm that a colour correction service will be appropriate for their hair.

Our central Bristol hairdressers give free hair consultations to all clients, with prices confirmed at the time. This is standard with our bespoke hair services.

As a rough guideline, our hair restyling services in Bristol start from:

Cut & blowdry £49.50

Toner over hair £25

Highlights £25

Full hair colour change £150

Clients understand that there are different prices for different services when it comes to a hair restyle, and the above are guidelines only.

We also provide expert inputs on clients’ face shape and hair textures during hair consultations, to ensure they get the very best bespoke look for them.

It’s our job to refine a client’s vision to ensure that they get the best possible look.

We will also ask clients how long they want to spend time daily on maintaining and styling their hair. The Haircare regime is also an important consideration.

We give free advice on the merits of long and short hairstyles, so each client visiting us for a hair restyling service can go for their favourite hair choice.

If you’d like more information about the hair restyling service available at our central Bristol hair salon, please feel free to get in touch with us here.

What are the 2022 hair trends to watch in Bristol?

The New Year is here, and with it are some exciting and new 2022 hair trends to watch out for in Bristol.

Spring hairstyles in Bristol

Our Baldwin Street hairstylists in central Bristol have some of the hottest hairstyles and hair trends to keep an eye out for in January and beyond.

If you’re unsure where to take your New Year hairstyling for 2022, we also provide a full and free hair consultation for all of our clients, in a Covid-safe salon environment.

Some of the hottest hair trends in Bristol for 2022 will include:

Mid-Length Bob

This is longer than a short bob but shorter than a long bob.

It falls above the shoulder and below the chin and is a low-maintenance hit for 2022. In essence, it is a mid-length blunt 90s-style bob.

Layered Haircut

Hair trends for 2022 in Bristol aren’t going to be all about blunt ends.

90s layered haircuts are making a comeback.

A layered haircut is great for adding volume, movement and shape as well as framing the face.

Natural-looking hair

Effortless hairstyling with natural colour will become popular in 2022.

Less is more, and natural hairstyles with relaxed colours and elevated gloss or a natural highlight will be in demand with clients in Bristol hair salons.

Make sure you go for a look and colour that suit your face shape and skin tone.

Hair extensions for 2022

We think another big hair trend for clients in 2022 will be hair extensions.

Hair typically only grows around half an inch per month, so professional hair extensions can give a stunning long length.

Long lengths will be a big hit, and we predict between 17-21 inches will be the sweet spot for many clients in Bristol. This reaches between the chest and waist.

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.

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.

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.
