Boho Festival Hair at Bonomini Bristol 

Here at Bonomini Hair Salon Bristol were getting super excited about Festival season. We’ll be getting our fav festival hairstyles on and are waiting to see which looks rock this year. We are known in Bristol as one of the best salons for creating beautiful, laid back, natural looking hair and for our Boho influenced styles. So as Festival Season has officially begun with Coachella leading the way for this year’s festival fashion, we thought we’d share some of our favourite looks. It seems whilst previous fest-seasons have been all about loose fishtail braids and colourful lipstick, 2017’s style guide looks to be more sophisticated; championing fresh skin and low-key up-dos made pretty with fresh cut flowers and sparkly accessories. Whether you’re hitting Glastonbury, Love box or just want to join the bohemian vibes for the summer, hair needs to be practical but eccentric, here’s what’ll be inspiring us…

Firstly, one of our own Bonomini Bristol creations – Hair rings, glitter, plaits and waves. Nothing more to say…

The Double Top Knot

As seen on Kendall Jenner, Poppy Delevingne’s and Chiara Ferragni. Either split hair into two and wrap into two high knots or leave out some casual waves.

(This look is great for day three when you’ve given up on the dry shampoo). Talking of Dry shampoo, this is even better- make sure you pack a bottle of  Davines ‘This is a dry texturizer’.  Davines 'dry texturizer'

For an instant full-bodied look, this creates texture with a ruffled effect. Use it to restyle your hair without washing, it doesn’t stick or weigh your hair down.


We love Lucy Hale’s Flower Crown..But we love this crystal crown more…

Play with hints of colour through your braids or on the ends of your hair. Use temporary colours and have some fun… here’s what we’re rocking in the salon MASK 12.11 + 10.0 + a dollop of 4.22 = Ashy, summery toner for Becky by Lori @bonominihair

The boxer braids and cornrows took Instagram by storm, no wonder we always end up seeing loads at music festivals.

Top tips from the Bristol Bonomini team:

If you’re planning on getting any sleep, twist hair up into a loose knot and in the morning shake it out, this will stop your hair from getting too tangled.
Prep your hair for the festival weekend. Do a couple of deep hydrating treatments a few weeks before the festival and for a for weeks after to repair from any environmental damage like the sun.

And if all that hair inspiration (or the weather) fails you, then follow Cara’s lead and work a classic festival look; the tousled hair and wide-brim hat.

Treating Mums To Some ‘me time’

Is there a special mum in your life? Perhaps it’s your own mum, your partner or a friend who is pulling out all of the stops to be everything to everyone. Most of us can name at least one super-mum. Would you believe that it has been estimated that mums get just 17 minutes or less to themselves every day? What better way to show them how much you appreciate everything that they do by making them an appointment in the best hair salon in Bristol.

Self-care has been shown to be increasingly important to support the emotional well-being of mums and since it is often mums who hold the family together, it’s in everybody’s interest to keep her happy!

Imagine her face when you reveal that she will be having some time alone, being pampered with no kids! You could even indulge her with one of our luxury hair or scalp treatments to complement her appointment. Mums can often feel like a little part of their identity gets lost at some point after having a baby. They prioritise everyone and everything except themselves. Turn their world upside down by booking one of our talented stylists in our luxury Clifton hair studio to pull out all of the stops to make her reconnect with what a wonderful woman she is.

‘Mum hair’ might have had a slating in the press last year but the expertise of our stylists will be able to advise on the perfect style and hair care regime which will allow her to keep the salon-fresh feeling right through until her next visit. Whether the mum in your life would jump at the chance to restyle herself or would most like to relax and indulge, rest assured she will leave Bonomini relaxed and rejuvenated having indulged in the best type of ‘me time’ that’s on offer.

6 Ways To Care For Your Hair This Winter

Winter’s tough conditions put added stress onto your hair. So how can you keep your tresses looking shiny and beautiful? These 6 tips will set you up for crowning glory during the cold months ahead!

1. Cover up!

Hair soon starts to become dry and damaged from harsh weather, so cover it up with a hat. To avoid the dread ‘hat hair’ syndrome, cover your tresses with a silk scarf before tucking them into a hat of your choice. This reduces static and damage from fabric fibres.

2. Use a protein-based deep conditioning treatment

Treat once a week to lock moisture back into the cuticles and to provide vital keratin to the hair’s structure. This will prevent breakage and nourish each strand for a healthy, bouncy appearance. Try a couple of drops of argan oil onto your ends before you blow-dry too.

3. Minimise hair washing to just 2-3 times weekly

This cuts down on hair friction, stress and breakage overall. It also prevents your hair from drying out.

4. See your hairdresser regularly!

A trim every six to eight weeks will keep your hair in optimum condition and allow your hairdresser to pick up on any potential issues early on.

5. Eat well

Include plenty of protein, vitamins and minerals in a wholefood diet and drink plenty of water for elasticity and to keep your scalp healthy.

6. Invest in a humidifier for your home

If you have the heating on regularly, a humidifier will prevent the atmosphere from becoming too dry. This will prevent dryness and split ends from occurring. Alternatively, a bowl of water above the radiator will have the same effect. Why not spray leave-in conditioner onto your hair when you are at home as the warmth will help it to penetrate and have an even more beneficial effect?

With these tips in place, you can care for your hair this winter and keep it looking great! Call into our hair salon in Bristol for more help on retaining that shine throughout the colder months.
