Over the past year I have gone from having long hair to short hair in stages as well as changing a habit of a life time. As in I am now back to my natural mid brown colour hair instead of blonde. But now I have short hair like Sarah Hardings, I am not liking it. I would like to go back to a POB. What would you suggest me doing? I also have fine, lifeless hair.

I could suggest that you go down the hair extensions route, but for the cost and the upkeep they take, you may be better off just having a bit of patience and waiting for your hair to grow those few extra inches! If I were you I might even consider going for another change of style Ė as it seems like recently you have been rather brave with changing your image! Why not try a new pixie crop as seen on Victoria Beckham? It may seem a scary prospect but it is bang on trend at the moment and also very easy to maintain. All you need to do is apply a good wax or texturiser to give the style definition, such as Fudge Matte Head

I had my second child at the end of May and am in desperate need of a hairstyle change. I currently have long straight, very fine, very blonde highlighted hair. Due to time and finances I very rarely get to have my roots done so they look awful and because my hair is so fine it looks like flyaway straw if I donít dry and straighten it which I often donít have time for. Also I have a cowís lick which makes it difficult to have a fringe, although I would like one. I would love a new low maintenance and cheap to maintain style, preferably still blonde and with some length.

One very simple thing you can do to ease your obvious roots to tone down your highlights. Why not go for more natural caramel and honey tones when you next get your hair highlighted, that way they will be less obvious when they grow out. I would invest in a good quality serum to control the unruly hairs, and it is possible that your hair is being made even more flyaway by the fact that you are straightening it so often. Make sure that when using straighteners you always protect your hair first by using a protective spritz, such as LíOreal Hot Style Iron Finish (£12.30). As far as your fringe is concerned, why not try a sweeping fringe that incorporates your cowís lick? Or if you donít mind spending a bit of time styling your hair each morning, run some mousse through damp hair and then style with your hairdryer on a high setting, using a barrelled brush such as the Kent Hot Curls Brush (£8.00). Roll your fringe around the brush and then aim the nozzle of the hairdryer down the hair shaft. This brush has a ceramic coated heat retaining core and so will enable you to tame your cowís lick into submission!

Iím in desperate need of a haircut every time I get it done I just say "cut that layers and the fringe a bit". So it looks lifeless really. I have mid brown hair - it comes to just above my bust and although the hair itself is quite fine, there is A LOT of it, therefore it frizzes badly. I straighten it every other day, or blow dry it straight. I am quite small, and have a long face with a high forehead and a long nose and chin. I really want more volume to my hair - can this be achieved with a lot of choppy layers?
|Answered By: |
If you have a long face then ensure that you have shorter layers at the front so it detracts from the length of your face. Keep your hair a little shorter so it doesnít drown your features and make sure that the layers around your face start from above your jaw line ...More >
Bobs and layered styles are perfect to give thin or fine hair more instant movement and volume, this means that the choppy layers and thick fringe of the style you liked from my gallery would suit you brilliantly
If you find it difficult to describe what kind of cut you want, always make sure you always take a picture with you to the salon
To fight the frizz you need to start taking some protection from all that straightening and blow drying. Use some of my Poker Straight Intensive Treatment with P2Fifty which will fight the damaging effects of your irons, whilst moisturising the hair shaft leaving it looking and feeling healthy
Itís so important to protect your hair, so before you straighten use my Poker Straight Flat Iron Protection Shine Mist on towel dried hair and then again, once youíve perfected your straightened look.
Another good way to avoid frizz is to use some climate control for your hair, as humidity can cause havoc! My Poker Straight Dehumidifier acts as an umbrella against moisture and stops frizz in its tracks, leaving your hair smooth, shining and manageable
