Salons that Specialise in Afro and Multicultural Hair
Gaudi hair salon is right near the Bristol City Centre, making it an ideal salon to get to no matter where in the city you’re heading from. You can find them at 49 Baldwin Street, Bristol, BS1 1RA. If you need to ask any questions in advance, you can get in touch at 0117 929 8009 or email through firstname.lastname@example.org.
Plenty of people with Afro or Mixed hair have spent their lives being told that their hair is notoriously difficult to care for, an excuse used by many salons for a half-a-job haircut. At Gaudi Hair, you can put your mind at rest as your stylist will be specially trained in caring for your hair type. As a whole, the salon tailors to European and Afro hair, branding themselves as ‘cut and colour experts’.
The Gaudi Experience promised at the salon was inspired by Antono Gaudí, the Catalan architect whose style was very organic and reflective of nature. The salon says their ethos is ‘communication, compassion, create and consistency’, so you’ll leave with a fantastic style time and time again.
As with many salons, the prices vary based on both the hair type of the client, style they are going for and the experience of the stylist. A ladies European cut and finish starts at £35, and a ladies Afro natural cut and finish begins at £40. However, be sure to check out their site https://www.gaudihair.com/ when you visit, as there are often plenty of deals to save you some pennies, including a 10% student discount, 10% NHS discount and offers such as ‘introduce a friend’ deals or a ‘new client welcome pack’.
Cococheno are another salon that specialises in Afro, Multicultural and European hair, with all stylists in the salon being trained to work with all hair types and textures. People rave about the styling at Cococheno, particularly for those with curly or Afro hair. Cococheno pride themselves on the wide target audience they are able to reach, making the salon experience accessible to all, without compromising on the quality of your haircut.
Another great aspect of Cococheno is that they give you tips, advice, and all the details on maintaining your locks from home because, let’s face it, how often have you left the hairdressers loving your new look but then found it impossible to replicate yourself? Cococheno want you to have a look you can maintain and that will last, regardless of your hair type, texture, colour, cut, or style. You can achieve that salon look every day with the tips from Cococheno.
Cococheno understands the importance of your hair in your confidence and making sure that your haircut meets all your expectations, so they offer a complimentary consultation to discuss all your options and wants from your stylist beforehand (this also stops any scary shocks once you get to the till).
As with a number of the hairdressers mentioned on this list, Cococheno charges based on the experience of your stylist, leaving your price to be flexible, perfect if you’re looking to have confidence in the expertise of your stylist, or if you’re looking to save a little money – there are plenty of options available.
A ladies cut and blow dry begins at £39.00, and a full colour, cut, and blow dry from £97.00. For those with Afro hair, a natural haircut and blow dry begins at £52.00, though with the range of treatments on offer and the expertise of staff, your hair will be in safe hands. Men’s styling begins from £15.00 for a clipper cut, £18.00 for a cut and blow dry, and men’s long and Afro hair starts at £27.00. With hair care, you get what you pay for, especially at the salon. Whilst Cococheno may not be the cheapest on the market, the results are knockout each and every time. There is also an additional charge of £20 for customers with extra thick, long, and natural hair.

Hair at 58 is in fact the only Aveda concept salon in Bristol, so if that is a necessity on your tick list, I’m afraid that there aren’t a whole host of options available.
For those amongst us asking what on earth Aveda Concept means, it really isn’t too complex to wrap your head around. The Aveda ethos is focused on using products that give back to society, are sustainable in their creation and avoid artificial colouring, lab fragrances and nasty chemicals that often worm their way into hair products. Aveda concept salons, in short, use products made from plants and flowers to give you a natural, ethical hair style. And, if you really end up loving your look, Hair at 58 sell Aveda products in their store too.
Hair at 58 are dedicated to the overall relaxing, pampering experience, not just a quick chop of your split ends. After your cut, colour, or whatever other treatment you’ve chosen, you’ll be offered a hand, head, or shoulder massage. Dog lovers brace yourselves, as you might even see Rascal the ‘Chief Cuddler’ and salon dog.
The Hair at 58 website, https://hairat58.co.uk/, also has plenty of guidance available on their page to figure out curly hair types, from labelling your curl pattern to testing the porosity. Whether you go for a cut there or not, this is an incredibly useful tool to describe your experiences with your hair to your stylist. It’s brilliant for parents with curly haired little ones or people who are looking to learn to understand their own hair better.
At Hair at 58, you can have a cut and finish on long hair from £25 and a full head colour from £110, with price varying between ‘New Talents’, ‘Junior Stylists’, ‘Stylists’, ‘Top Stylists’, and ‘Directors’.
