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.

Jessica asks:
I have always had light blonde highlights and over the past few months have also had a base break so my roots are lighter. My hair is naturally curly and just below my shoulders. The last time I got my hair done she cut and coloured it. My stylist put some shorter layers in it as that is what I requested. She styled it straight and then used a thinning shear all over. I donít have really thick hair at all and was upset she used it. Now it feels a lot thinner and I feel like my curl is not as defined as it was. How long does it take for your hair to recover after a stylist uses the thinning shears? Does it damage your hair? How can I fix the damage? I should have asked her why she was doing that but I assumed she knew what she was doing. She knows I have curly hair and usually I wear it curly... So Iím not sure why she did that!

There is good and bad in every profession and I think you have just experienced the later. NOT TO WORRY. I would not EVER recommend using thinners for someone who styles their hair curly. This definitely reduces the curl result and definition. The stylist probably thinned the ends to remove the cutting lines that were visible after having your layered when dried straight. ...More >

I would recommend having a weave cut. By this I actually mean sections of your hair been taken as if to colour it when having weave highlights. Then each of the "weave" pieces in each section are cut at different lengths with scissors. This will thicken your thinned ends that have been put in previously.

It is really difficult and I can understand your frustration but when you have long curly hair the last think you want is normal layers introducing or your ends thinned.

The weave cut will help remedy some of your problem depending how far up your hair they went while thinning.

Pat asks:
I had my hair coloured with a permanent hair colour, matrix copper dark blonde and hate the colour. My natural hair colour is dark golden blonde. What can I put on my hair to get this copper red out?

Hi Pat - I think I would leave the colour as it is now and just add a very fine highlight to it, otherwise youíre going to have to strip the colour you have now, right out and it will affect the condition of your hair.
