Elizabeth asks:
I have very long naturally Dark to Mid Brown hair, but for the last 2 years, I have been applying a natural black permanent hair colour. The condition is excellent, and now I only need to touch up the roots every 8 weeks or so. But now, after a series of life changes, I want to go back to my Cindy Crawford style highlighted look, which I had about 6 years ago. I am 26, and do not yet have any signs of grey. Is it possible to highlight hair which has been coloured so dark? I have seen it done before, but I know I will loose at least a third off my length, if not half due to chemical damage through lightening. Are my expectations too high?

It is possible to colour over coloured hair but with me not being able to see it and if it is very dark I would suggest going to a professional and seeking advice. They may strip a lot of the colour out of it first and then highlight on top. It might take a few times of going to get the desired look but it is possible and fairly straightforward. You can get free consultations at most salons!

Jenny asks:
I have naturally curly hair but I straighten it all the time, I want it to be longer, I thought about hair extensions. I also color my hair and my question is- can I get extensions although I have to blow-out my hair to straighten it and what about the colouring?

Extensions are suitable for some curly hair but it really does depend on how curly. Racoon extensions are available in a natural wave that can be styled straight if required but they also have fabulous curly hair too. If you prefer your hair straight then you can blow-dry your hair and the extension hair straight. I would suggest natural hair rather than synthetic as this tends to be just straight. It would be best to have a consultation (call Racoon on 01295 770999 for your nearest salon) and they will be able to discuss the texture of extensions required. In regards to colour, hair extensions can be applied on coloured hair (again, a consultation is necessary to determine the strength of the hair). Racoon can actually colour match your hair exactly so that the extensions hair blends to your own. However, if you do colour your hair, ensure that you have your roots coloured prior to your consultation as the hair will be matched exactly - its no good changing the colour afterwards!

Tasmin asks:
Okay so Iíve bought a manic panic dark reddish hair dye and Iím just wondering the best way to lighten my dark brown hair just a little bit so the red will take. I donít want to lighten my hair too light just down a shade or 2 if that makes sense. Would it work if I just used a blonde hair dye or is it a case of trying to strip it. I donít really like the idea of stripping or bleaching as I donít want to damage my hair too much thank you for your advice in advance

If you hair is naturally dark brown then you should be able to use red colour with 6% or 20 volume developer and have a great result. However if your hair is coloured dark brown with artificial colour you will need to pre lighten it, there are some very good ones available on the high street if having it done at a salon isnít an option. Just follow the instructions exactly. ...More >

Good luck
