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.

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

Easy access to the best hair products in Bristol during lockdown

Some of our clients have been in touch, and concerned about how to get easy access to the best hair products in Bristol during the current lockdown.

With all Bristol hair salons currently being closed under Government guidelines, it can be a real problem getting hair products, hair care items, hair colouring advice, as well as general hair tips from central Bristol hairdressers.

Baldwin Street Bristol salon

As with the Covid-19 lockdowns of 2020, the hairstyling and haircare team at Aidan Garlington Hair Design are on hand to advise and assist clients further.

We can help and guide, giving free advice on hair issues such as:

Managing longer hair in Bristol lockdown

Hair care and handling poorly nourished hair

Daily hair routines to try during lockdown

Clients can easily access the best hair products in Bristol during the current lockdown by simply emailing us on hair@aidangarlington.co.uk.

We’re here to help and can give you advice on any hair issues you’re currently experiencing.

Our main haircare tip in lockdown is to ensure that your hair is clean, hydrated and in good condition. This applies to all hair types and hair of all lengths.

Good quality shampoo, conditioner, and hair moisturising products are vital. Be gentle with your hair, and watch out for heat damage whist indoors during the lockdown period.

Winter weather can also be harsh on hair, so when taking your daily exercise be careful if outdoors. Heavy wind, colder temperatures and rain can be issues that lead to damaging hair.

Our hair care advice is always highly prescriptive, and unique to each client, so feel free to get in touch during the current Bristol lockdown via hair@aidangarlington.co.uk to ask us questions and order any products.

We wrote a hair care advice in Bristol lockdown blog post recently – visit here to get access to our expertise.

If you need help with hair colouring during lockdown, but are unsure what to do with Bristol hair salons being closed, please visit here.

The entire team at Aidan Garlington Hair Design are following current Government guidelines regarding PPE, to ensure that clients and staff are safe at all times, as well as being able to effectively provide quality service.

  • To ensure your appointment goes ahead and to avoid having to wait outside please arrive at your appointment time.
  • On arrival at the salon the door will be locked so you will have to ring the foot-operated bell.
  • Your stylist will answer the door.
  • You will be asked to use the hand sanitizer provided, put on a face mask and place your belongings (coat, hand bag, etc) into a clear plastic bag, please keep personal items to a minimum.

  • We will be using disposable towels and our gowns which will be washed after every use at over 60
  • Payment can be contact less card (£45 maximum) Apple or android pay (no maximum) or cash.

Before making or coming to your appointment, please ask yourself the following question:

  • Do you or anybody in your household or ‘bubble’ have any cold or flu-like symptoms?

If so, please call the salon on 0117 376 3248 to re-schedule, should you already have an appointment booked.

Winter Haircare hints and top hair treatments in central Bristol

The team of hairstylists at Aidan Garlington Hair Design are passing on the best Winter haircare hints and top haircare treatments in central Bristol this week.

At this time of year, a number of factors such as frosty weather, wet and windy storms, central heating damage and other extreme hot and cold elements can cause haircare to become a top priority for many clients.

hair treatments in central Bristol from Aidan Garlington Hair Design

And we’ve got some fantastic, fast and frizz-free Winter haircare tips and hair treatments available from our Baldwin Street hair salon to specifically deal with the worst of the weather.

One of the best Winter haircare treatments we offer is a hair mask. This thorough hair treatment includes a shampoo, towel dry, then head massage and placing under heat, ideally.

Then we add our new British Hair revitalising hair product, leave in for 10 minutes and rinse out. Hair is then cut and styled, giving an intensive hydration treatment at our central Bristol hair studio, as well as a hairstyle.

Winter haircare tips in Bristol from Aidan Garlington Hair Design

We also provide hair treatments from L’Oreal, which is a more prescriptive approach for our clients. This is great for chemically-damaged hair, or hair which has been damaged by wind, pollution and general weather conditions.

The L’Oreal ‘Absolute Repair’ range of haircare treatments is outstanding.

We can also deliver a hair mask treatment for coloured hair, even for each type of hair – this covers hair that might be needing the following care:

More moisture adding into hair

More protein replacement for hair

More colour care for haircare

Haircare for mechanically damaged hair

We identify the exact issues and haircare required for each client during our full and free consultation. Our trained haircare professionals in Bristol will assist you fully – and all for only £7.50 too!

Clients can also take home selected haircare products and treatments from only £14.99: simply ask in-salon when you book your appointment with us.

Hair masks are an excellent way to protect and rebuild hair integrity, as well as putting moisture back into weather-damaged hair in Winter.

Our hair masks using the brand new ranges of British Hair only cost £7.50 per treatment, and are proving to be one of the most popular haircare services we offer at our central Bristol hair salon in January and February.

Number One Olaplex product is applied for five minutes, followed by Number Two Olaplex product to activate the hair reconstruction treatment.

After the hair is rinsed the treatment is complete and Number Three Olaplex product is given to the client to take away and use at home once a week.
