Davines Refill Bar

Davines Refill Bar

22 October, 2019

Re-use your empties and top up on your favourite Davines Shampoo & Conditioner at our Refill Bar.


So like us, we bet you’ve gotten pretty good at recycling all of your newspapers and wine bottles, right? But what about your beauty products? In the UK we collectively recycle 90% of our kitchen waste but only 50% of cosmetics. The beauty industry is a big contributor to the current crisis (by 2050 it’s estimated there will be more plastic in the sea than fish).


We’ve decided to follow the lead of our beloved Davines, offering our clients the opportunity to top-up their favourite products (at a discount) at our Bonomini Refill Bar. Davines have championed the concept of sustainable beauty for decades and we follow in their lead – recycling our waste food and products, using biodegradable Scrummi towels, washing with filtered water and of course through the use of chemical-free and zero-impact, Davines products.


After all, there’s no point in hair if the planets not there!

Weddings at Bonomini

Weddings at Bonomini

23 May, 2019

With Bridal season nearly upon us, we thought we’d get our renowned bridal team to share their top tips for the day and give you a sneak preview of what it’s like to be a Bonomini Bride.


Wedding days at Bonomini

The beautiful top floor of our Georgian building is a wonderful place for our brides & their bridal party to create some special memories. Many bring their makeup artists and photographers and can relax in between having their hair styled on our comfy sofas.


Lauren – what makes the Bonomini Bridal team so popular?

The time and commitment that we give to each of our brides, we can create anything we are asked to but we love natural, simplistic, laid back hair. Hair should be classic and timeless even if based on the latest looks and trends, something you will still love when you look back at your wedding album in year’s to come.


Tell us about the Bonomini’s style

We love disheveled bohemian styles and flower garlands; fresh flowers are the ultimate addition to a laidback look, which we love. More traditional styles can also look beautiful if created simply and elegantly, we like to give them a modern twist!


Kat – what things do you take into consideration when working with a bride on their wedding hair?

The dress! The neckline, material, and style are all so important in relation to what we create. If the dress has lots of detailing then we often go back to basics with the hair and create a simple style to complement. If plainer then we can create a more complicated up-do. Theme and venue are also very important – everything should flow!


We’ll come to you!

Most of the bridal work we do is in salon but we happily travel to our bride’s venue, taking the team and their toolboxes.


To find out more about our wedding service, please contact the salon on 0117 9239169 or

She has a great versatility that clients love. A curly girl herself, she expertly advises clients in cutting and styling to accentuate even the most untameable hair, is highly skilled in colour corrections and always treats her clients to mini-tutorials while she is styling — her current favourite is the “Instagram wave”.

Davines – On Protection

Davines – On Protection

04 December, 2018

Move over Olaplex, there’s a new kid in town! Davines has developed its latest innovation ‘ON PROTECTION’. A scientifically developed, hair preserving concentrate, which “reinforces colour protection and provides anti-oxidant and anti-free radical action for extremely protected, soft, shiny and elastic hair”.


Like Olaplex, Davines Hair Preserving Concentrate can be used in two ways; as a stand-alone reinforcing beautifying treatment (an SOS rescue service for challenging hair) or, technically as an addition to colour services such as highlights and bleaches.


Our verdict

We love the extra shine it has given to our colours and the effect on strength and elasticity, that we’ve seen on clients damaged hair. We recommend using as a regular take-home treatment, to improve the overall hair condition and to counteract the daily stress from the use of hot tools, colouring and exposure to heat and the outside environment.


To find out more about the science behind the product and for pricing, call the salon on 0117 9239169 or E:


Davines Liquid Spell — Reinforcing Bodifying Fluid

Davines Liquid Spell — Reinforcing Bodifying Fluid

04 October, 2018

There’s nothing hocus pocus about the latest product line from Davines — ‘Liquid Spell’. Concocted to create body and strength for sensitised or fine hair, this is magic in a bottle — transforming its texture from a liquid to a rich mousse. Activated by heat, it strengthens the quality of the hair fibre enabling strands to hold shapes for longer and providing beautiful silkiness and shine in light.


The science: The formula contains a concentrate of amino acids and chemical substances similar to the structure of the hair. When applied it visibly minimises damage caused by over styling, colour and environmental stresses such as sun exposure.


How to use: This is the bit we love the most! This fabulous addition to the product range can be used in combination with other Davines products. We’ve concocted our own signature spell, adding a few drops of the Bodifying Fluid to our salon staple, OI Oil for exceptionally soft and shiny hair.


Liquid Spell is available in our Bristol salon. For more information or to order, please get in touch Bonomini 0117 923 9169 or E:

Your Hair Assistant

Your Hair Assistant

17 July, 2017

If there’s one thing we know how to do well at Bonomini, it’s to deliver a great Blow-dry. Which is why we’re already converts of the the innovative new product line Your Hair Assistant by Davines. Conceived and designed alongside artistic director at Davines Angelo Seminara (three times British Hairdresser of the Year), this is the perfect tool for us in the salon and for clients at home, looking to achieve long lasting sleek definition, structure and hold.


The collection comprises of seven complimentary products each designed to work in synergy with the next; a prep shampoo, two types of conditioners for different hair weights, our hero product the Blow-Dry primer, a volume creator and brush, definition mist and to complete the strong hold hairspray.


As with all Davines products the range boasts top quality ingredients whilst maintaining its eco credibility. Sulphate and paraben free and zero impact carbon free packaging, it’s high end luxury, guilt free.


If splurging on the whole range is a step too far, we’d recommend first investing in the prep shampoo and the blow-dry primer, available in the salon starting at £18.90. Check out some more tips from Angelo Seminara on how to achieve that perfect blow-dry yourselves at home.
