We’ve been focusing on hairdressing education and hair extension excellence at Stages Hair Design recently, with stylists from both of our Bristol hair salons spending a training day on hair extension techniques.


The whole team spent the day learning the latest hair extension techniques, including positioning of hair for colouring and how to achieve extra thickness rather than just concentrating on hair length – a common error with providing hair extension services.

Our stylists worked on hair blocks with one live model, a client who had 25 bonds put in place. Our staff were able to deliver thicker and fuller hair for up to five months – at a cost to the client of only £75!

The team discussed how to put blonde hair into darker hair, making it look sun-kissed as it’s Summer – this would also eliminate the need for bleaching and chemicals on the hair.

It was also good to try the two systems, the Cold Fusion system is growing in popularity as it uses no heat, whilst bonding keratin to the hair – and also using the Classic Heat machine.

As leading trainers and educators across the South West for premium hair extension company Great Lengths, our Creative Directors Richard Hillier and Simon Dewey are passionate about providing the best hair extensions in Bristol, and it was fantastic to see the team gaining new skills, too!

At Stages Hair Design, we’ve been working with Great Lengths for some time, using their superior quality 100% natural hair extensions for our hair salons in Bristol.

One of our most popular hairdressing services in Bristol remains our hair extensions and we’re really excited to have launched a new Clip-In hair extension service from 01st October for our clients.


The new Clip-In hair extensions from Great Lengths are a reusable hair product, available in strips of five and applied in-salon by our hair extension experts.

Called Fast Track, this new hair extension product from Great Lengths is a game-changer in the world of hair extensions, and only a select number of UK hair salons will have it in stock.

Stages Hair Design are the only Bristol hair salon offering Fast Track hair extensions, so be sure to grab this exclusive service from October!

It’s a great introduction to hair extensions, or can be used to bulk out an area of hair. We’ll be using 10 crazy colours with 15 natural hair shades – this will be expanded across the new range in time.

No whole heads are applied with Fast Track: it’s a hair extension treatment to add colour without chemicals, or for bulking hair. We’re also offering a 100% Guarantee of no damage to clients’ hair.

It’s quick and easy to remove, and offers our hairdressing clients a really rapid application. Prices will be starting with an introductory £58 per application.

Simply email us on info@stageshairdesign.co.uk to make your appointment!
