Kittu asks:
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

Reanna asks:
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

Jess asks:
How do I get my naturally curly hair back after nearly ten years of straightening it every other day?

The good news is that the extent to which your hair curls is determined by genetics and the curl is formed within the individual hair follicles, so continuously subjecting your existing hair to heated straightening cannot technically reduce the amount of curl within the hair on a permanent basis. As new hair grows from the follicle, it should return to its naturally curly shape. If, however, you have noticed that the amount of curl in your existing hair has lessened due to repeated use of straightening irons, it is likely that the hair has become heat damaged, and so is behaving in a less manageable way. As you cut back on your use of straightening irons, your hairís health should improve, but itís a good idea to start incorporating some hair health-boosting habits into your routine, to restore manageability, encourage new hair growth and boost your hairís integrity. Use a deep conditioning treatment once a week, and visit your hairdresser once every six weeks for a trim and a professional deep conditioning treatment. Kťrastaseís In-Salon Rituals are ideal for improving your hairís health over time, as they can be tailor-made to your hairís needs each time. When you switch from straightening your curly hair to embracing your natural bounce, you need to start using different products and should embrace a different haircare regime. After years of straightening your hair and fighting your natural curl, you will need to learn how to encourage your natural curls, while at the same time fighting frizz. Products designed to boost body, reduce frizz, enhance curls and create shine in naturally curly hair should be at the top of your shopping list. I would start with a gentle shampoo, a deeply nourishing conditioner, a lightweight, but hard-working, serum and a body-boosting mousse, ideally from a range that is designed for curly hair. Also consider how frequently you wash your hair, as over-washing curly hair can strip away natural oils that are essential to maintaining curly hairís shine and its ability to stay free from frizz. A co-washing product such as Kťrastase Cleansing Conditioner Curl Ideal (£31.70) is something that I often recommend to my curly-haired clients. The way you style your hair will also need to change Ė I would recommend leaving your hair to dry naturally, to avoid any further heat damage. After washing, smooth a leave-in conditioning spray or serum through the mid-lengths and ends, and comb through. Add a little volume-boosting mousse through the roots and ends, while hair is still damp, but then avoid any further combing or brushing, which can cause the hair to frizz. Your cut and style will also determine the amount your hair curls: for example, hair with more layers cut into it has more of a tendency to curl than hair that is one-length, which sits heavier and can cause curls to drop. Speak to your hairdresser to work out the best cut for your hair, that will not only encourage your natural waves, but will also suit your face shape, your hairís texture and thickness, your personality and the level of maintenance youíre able to commit to.
