Maureen asks:
I am sixty and want to stop dying my hair should I have a boy hair cut? What do you advice?

Firstly Maureen, why stop colouring your hair because you are sixty? Have you not heard? Sixty is the new fifty! As for a boy hair cut, short hair like a boy only suits clients with very small faces so if this is you go for it! My advice would be to go to a professional hair salon and have a consultation on what would suit you. I also think if you are used to having your hair coloured it will not seem the same if you try growing it out. If you normally have a full head colour you could go half way and have some beautiful lowlights through to make your hair look great! Good Luck Maureen & happy hair!

Marion asks:
I had some low lights about 2 months ago that reacted with a henna colour I had put in my hair ( I did not realise this would happen) so the hairdresser put an all over colour on to cover up the green. This has now faded and I am left with a thick band of greenish tinge at the back of my head. I have spent the last couple of years growing my hair and do not want to have it cut short again. The salon did a strand test to see if I could have another colour but it reacted badly. They said my hair would be worse. Please help! Is there anything I can do to neutralise the green or that I can use to cover it. It is also now really dry (my hair is naturally dry and wavy anyway so this is a nightmare!) I am now tying my hair back in a ponytail every day to disguise the problem.

Henna is a progressive dye that stays in the hair until it grows out, even if it looks as if it has completely faded. There is nothing you can do but use lots of conditioning treatments and gradually have the henna coloured hair cut off. Because of this problem I never recommend clients to use Henna on their hair at home.

Buffy asks:
I have naturally medium brown hair with about 15 % grey. I have been wondering if it is possible to use a colour that will basically just colour the as to give a highlight if i could get the grey hair to a caramel/light brown in contrast with my medium brown hair. I have tried some at home tone on tone semis but despite their claims my hair seems to end up one blanket colour. If this is not possible, can you have highlights and colour done at the same time ie the hair left in between what has been highlighted coloured my natural i know highlights alone will not cover the grey I have tried it before. Thanks for any help advise you can give.

It is possible to cover just the grey area but leave it to the professionals as they can see what they are doing! A semi-permanent colour is enough to cover low coverage of grey hair. Your stylists will be able to weave the grey hair and use a complimentary colour to give that highlighted effect. Stylists can also combine highlights and colour at the same time by using foils for the highlights and then a semi-permanent brushed onto the remaining hair for a shine/block colour. I cannot stress enough the importance of visiting professionals for colouring though. If money is a factor, then talk to them about model nights.
