Hi, I have been dying my darkish brown hair at home using Koleston 8/00 light natural blonde (permanent) with 40% vol peroxide. I have a lot of grey at the roots, but managing to cover these following advice you gave to somebody on here about increasing the ratio to 1 : 1 and leaving on longer.
My question is how can I brighten up my hair, without it becoming too yellow. I regularly use a blue shampoo and professional colour care products; the overall condition of my hair is good. Ideally I would like to go blonder, but not sure what shade of colour to buy. Can you help asap as Iím hoping to do this at the weekend. Thank you in advance for any advice you can give.

Hi Valerie, I am so sorry I didnít get to your question sooner, I went away for a much needed break! I was thrilled to hear that some advice previously offered was useful to you. To get you to a lighter shade I suggest using a clarifying or high detergent shampoo, leave it on your hair for 5 minutes before rinsing and repeating. Then investing in some blonding shampoo and conditioner, but using that at this time of year will mean you can actually lift up to 2 shades. The formula for your roots will then be a 9.00 or 10.00 with 40 vol use the 1:1 ratio and keep to the increased processing time. If you want to counteract a bit of the excess warmth use an ash shade as part of the formula I would go with 9.00 with 10.01 that way you are neutralising the warm tones and getting lighter. If you donít get the lift (Iím sure you will) from deep cleansing and the blonde shampoo and conditioner how about some very fine highlights? Really good luck x

Hi...ever since I started working Iíve been looking for a great cut to suit my face but still not succeed. Please help.. Iím 40 years old, oval shaped face with broad forehead and body little heavy.. My hair is straight and on the medium side.. My job is staying outdoors and the climate in India is hot. Please suggest a cut which I can leave open and tie too. To cover my forehead and that can make me look young cause I love to wear my hair down. Regards

Hi Kittu, Why donít you try a soft fringe and have a lovely bob shape, having it longer at the front will flatter your face shape. Having the soft fringe will soften your forehead too and you should be able to leave your hair to dry naturally. Thank you

Hello! Currently my hair is shoulder length (it was cut as a long bob with a harsher angle about 2 months ago so it has grown out) a little over a month ago I did a half and half. Half of my hair is red and the other half is a natural level 2. I want one colour all over. I hate my appearance and have no idea what colour style length etc. That would look good on me. All I want is too feel more confident and comfortable in my body.

Hi Reanna, It sounds amazing! How about having a more dramatic inverted bob and having the hair with a reverse ombre effect, so dark at the ends and redder at the top, this way itís easier to achieve, with what you currently have? If you donít like the sound of that how about a mid red colour with slices of caramels and blondes, keep the length but have lots of free hand sliced layers?
Why donít you go to a couple of salons for a free consultation or as a model and they will give you some great ideas that will make you feel more confident? Good luck x
