Francesca asks:
I have mid length light brown hair, and I want to make it look more stylish. I was thinking about having the bottom layer of it coloured, which colours look best with brown, and what is this style called?

If you were asking me 5 years ago the same question I would say yes go for it, but today fashion is very different. If you are looking for a stylish but classy look at someone like Liz Hurley but if you want funky perhaps go for corn colour slices and have them placed on the lower layers

Zoe asks:
Recently I went for a consultation to have highlights put in my hair (first time for me). The Hairdresser took a couple of strands of hair to test how they would respond to lightening (I have dark brown hair). When I went back the next day to ask about the results she produced the strands and both were very coppery, one slightly lighter than the other. I asked if the dye would take out the copper and give ash brown highlights and she said she was unsure. She stated it was hard to tell when my hair has such strong red tones what the colour would be like on it. This has made me nervous about having my hair coloured by her. She did not offer to test colour on the strands and as I get nervous at the hairdressers I completely forgot to ask. Is it normal to just see what happens with regards to highlights or should I cancel my appointment and go somewhere who can guarantee the outcome?

I think you should put this appointment on hold and visit another couple of salons for consultations. You do not want to go somewhere that you do not feel 100% confident. Salons offer consultations so that you can get an understanding of each other, if it does not feel right, do not book. I would suggest you only visit a salon that has colour experts such as L'Oreal Colour Expert Salons. The colourist have undergone extensive training and really know what they are doing.

Nadine asks:
Yesterday I coloured my hair and it has gone a yellowish blonde. How can I get it back to my natural colour light brown?

It would not be a good idea to try to do this for at least a week. What I would do for now is to get a toner in a beige blonde or pearl blonde colour, these will have a violet under tone that will neutralise the yellow. Be careful not to leave it on for too long and watch it very carefully. Wait at least a week and then visit a colour specialist in a salon to ask about going back to your natural colour. This is normally a double process colour and I do npt advise you try to do it yourself,
