Kimberly asks:
Iíve had blonde hi lites in my hair for a year full head tint 2 years previous to that. My problem is, after returning from Cancun in September my hair was completely white, which was fine except that my roots looked terrible, like black and white hair and because it had been hi lites was really dark underneath at the back as well. I asked my stylist if tint would be a better option and less damage and maintenance than constantly having to cover up what looked like black roots (I was a natural blonde but have got a lot darker over the years and probably very dark blonde or light brown now). The procedure was a disaster, the tint went orange and she put a toner on it but then this made the hi lites ash/grey. After 3 hours I had to leave as it was 8pm at night. Came home and my hair was yellow/orange on top and silvery/grey the rest. Went back to see her after the weekend and she said she would put a toner on the hi lites which should take the ash tone away and all she could do was put a brown tint on the top to mask the yellow/orange. I am totally distraught, look like an old woman and only 30. My hair has gone mousey brown but the hi lites still look grey. It has been 3 weeks and has faded a lot,(been shampooing with a tone correct and reconstructor conditioner. The hi lites look caramel at the top which is ok but the rest is this horrible brown/grey shade and breaking when I dry it. I will go to a professional salon but worried about anyone touching it but cannot bear to look like this anymore. In your professional opinion, can I go blonde at this stage without anymore bleach in my hair. My boyfriend is ready for dumping me as he says I look like my mother! Help!

OMG!!! you have been put through the ringer girl!!!

First things first, THIS SHOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED if you went to a professional but we are where we are. Or should I say you are. ...More >

Without actually seeing your hair first hand I cannot say with any clarity, yet what I can state is that you should have a strand test taken. This way a sample of your hair is taken and coloured from roots to end. When developed you see the result that you would be paying for.

To stop your boyfriend dumping you and running off with your mum, only kidding, visit a good experienced salon and have a consultation, get good advice, ask about a strand test so you could see the colour result prior to going ahead. This way you will keep in on your head and not on the floor as it beaks off from over processing.

Gemma asks:
Iíve got ginger hair and pale skin and I want to colour my hair but what colour can I go besides blonde?

I think when you have copper coloured hair, a great look is to have a couple of different shades of red through. One of our stylists shares the same colour as you and she has 2 different shades of red and her hair looks fantastic! I would strongly advise you go to a salon and have your hair coloured with a foil technique.

New Year New You!

Nicola asks:
I have naturally light-medium brown hair and I have been getting a full head of bleach highlights to make it a light blonde colour. Generally I like the colour but the problem is that I feel by having foils all of my hair is never coloured evenly. The blonde never seems to reach down to my roots or the sides and back eg around my ears and at the back of my neck are so these parts are still my natural colour and I think this looks very unnatural especially when wearing my hair up. Also when I look at some individual strands hair they are two toned as if only half of the hair has been dyed and this creates different colours which are very noticeable when I wear my blonde clip in extensions? Would I have been best to go with an all over bleach or blonde dye rather than getting a full head of highlights to achieve a more even blonde look and is there anything I can do now as I realize I probably canít have an all over bleach now I have had the highlights done. My hair is shoulder length in good condition. Thanks

I personally feel the look you are describing and desire would be achieved through highlights rather than a full head bleach. A full head bleach has a distinctive look it is not a Scandinavian blonde or a natural blonde feeling. Also the up keep of a full head bleach is every three weeks and it is a two step process so a bigger commitment than highlights. I would not do a full head bleach now because of the uneven and heavy highlights, it would be almost impossible to get you hair even and where your hair is already light it will become lighter and possibly break off due to the stress on the hair. I think at this stage you should look around at your friendís associates or any one on the street and when you see someone that as the color you are looking for ask them who their colorist is and give them a try.
