Susie asks:
I have incredibly thick straight grey hair that no stylist seems to have a solution for .Over the years I have had it layered, textured etc as there instinct is always to remove the "bulk" but all this does is make it stick out further .Its much better when I let its own weight pull it down but because of having to have the roots permanently coloured every three weeks I end up with banding and the sheer volume makes colouring such a chore for them. As I approach my fifties Iím becoming increasingly desperate to find a style that will work for me .Iím very tall, well built with very wide shoulders and with an oval face .My hair looks best when up or swept away from my face at least on one side. By using products I can keep it fairly shiny and sleek but what is the right thing to advise my stylist because it seems every "chip in" just creates frizzy hair that sticks out even more and itís so strong that no style lasts for long without a ton of product. It goes its own way hours after every salon visit!

I would strongly recommend that you look into having the Keratin Complex treatment done. What this does is add keratin back into the hair which helps people like yourself with very thick coarse hair be able to manage the style better. It is important to point out that it is NOT a chemical straightening process, but it will help reduce blow drying time and difficulties dramatically.





Carly asks:
All my life I have had short hair, shoulder length at its longest, and it has always been a really dark colour, itís black at the min. I would really like to change my hair and go for a chocolate brown with caramel coloured highlights but I also want to have really long hair, so also extensions are in the picture. I was looking at hairstyles the stars have and really like a cross between Tyra Banks and Cheryl Cole hairstyles. Any recommendations/price ranges? I also have an oval face with medium to pale skin tone but often use fake tan, would this hairstyle suit both skin tones and my facial shape?

Has your hair been naturally short, or have you kept it to a certain length by cutting it?

Shoulder length hair is an acceptable length for hair extensions. I would recommend you go no longer than 16Ē which would come down to about your bra strap at the back. ...More >

If you find a good consultant, she should be able to supply your with the mixture you want without making it look too odd. If you have a sensitive scalp, or your hair is quite fine, then I would recommend one of three techniques: Hook and Latch (no thread no glue) Micro ring track (using cold bond and micro rings) this is very light and very flat or the integrated weave technique (thin cornrow with weft of hair added)

All of the above techniques does not have any individual stress points to the hair and gives even distribution throughout. The integrated weave is particularly good for hot weather or if you have a hectic physical lifestyle such as the gym or swimming.

With regards to your face shape, it would be up to your technician and self to decide on styling your hair after the extensions have been added. Tyra Banks and Cheryl Cole use different types of extensions to produce a certain look. If you have not used hair extensions before or have experience in working with long hair, I suggest you break yourself in gently, when you get use to them you can then become a little more adventurous.

What you should expect to pay should be between £230 - £280 for 100% Remy treated hair.







Kerry asks:
I am a young 36 who has been going grey since my 20s and have dyed my roots every since. However, about 12 months ago I started to have an allergic reaction which was due to the PPD in the dye. My hair was dark brown but is now a multicoloured hair disaster as my roots are grey and the rest I have had highlighted different blondes to try to blend the grey, which it has not.

Definitely keep colour away from you skin if you have had an allergic reaction in the past, they can be very nasty.

You or your hairdresser obviously decided to go with blonde highlights to make the appearance of the grey less noticeable as it started to grow out.
What I would advise is to introduce some soft caramel browns as this will help with the calming down of what you appear to have now. ...More >

This is also very IN VOGUE at the moment and by introducing some soft golden brown shades it will give you a softer tone.

I would keep more lighter tone around your parting area if you have one, to keep the appearance of your grey at bay.
