Chelsea asks:
I have very fine shoulder length hair! And I mean fine!! Recently > dyed blonde, from my natural mousey brown! I cannot do anything with it, it just lays flat and if in a ponytail, it is the skinniest thing ever! I often get woven-in hair extensions, just so I can have long, thick, natural blond looking hair. Is there anything at all I can do to make it thicker? Not just by using a special shampoo for temporary appeared thickness etc! I am sure my extensions, which I have only been getting for 6 months, have not helped, but my hair has ALWAYS been this fine or am I just blessed with the genes. In the next couple of weeks, I will be dying my hair black and cut into a style. Please help.

What is your diet like? You can ensure your hair is in optimum health by eating your 5 portions of fruit and veg a day plus omega oils are great for hair, skin and nails. When you have your hair cut, do not be tempted to go for layers, keep it in a simple one-length style which creates weight and the illusion of thickness. Extensions are the ideal choice for thickness and if they are applied correctly by a trained stylist there really is not any reason they should damage your hair. Racoon offer two types of extensions - bonded and wefts. The bonded extensions will last up to 4 months and the hairdresser will be able add just a few partial extensions to give volume. The Racoon Micro Wefts are the latest launch and last up to 4 weeks. Again, the stylist can just add a few wefts to thicken the hair. With the wefts you can re-use them so they are very economical. With any extensions it is important that you use the right aftercare and maintain them carefully.

Natalie asks:
I have recently had my waist length hair cut so it rests on my collar bone with layers throughout. I was hoping for a trendy new me however I have found it very difficult to manage as it kinks out even after straightening. Getting frustrated and bored I had a fringe cut in and then some feathering around my face. Still it just does not seem right or trendy I never seem to quite get the style I am trying to achieve even if I provide the hairdresser with a picture. Please help. I have fine, straight brown hair but lots of it with a square face shape.

Do not worry about whether your cut is on trend, just think about what suits you and your lifestyle best. The reason you look different to the stars in your pictures is because you have a different face shape, hair type and skin tone to them. Before making any dramatic changes have a consultation so you can discuss what you are looking for and how to recreate it at home. With your angular features I suggest a sweeping fringe. This will add softness and give your feathering a modern twist. To add volume and a bit of Hollywood glamour attach a diffuser to your hairdryer and grab a tube of my Babe Wave Styling Crème. By working this through your layers you will add body to your fine hair and leave the trend followers begging for some of your timeless style.

Becca asks:
I have fine hair and a reasonably long face. I just wanted to know what sort of hairstyle would suit me and would make my hair appear thicker. It would also be helpful if you could recommend some products for volume enhancing.

I would recommend trying a structured style that compliments your oval face shape. The Pob has been a global hit and would be ideal for you. If you are a little fearful of having the chop, customise the cut to reflect your do if you dare level. This style is easy to maintain and gives you the opportunity to be creative. For work keep it simple and sophisticated but when you want your wild side to be seen, get your hands on to my super volumising Double Blow Mousse for body to die for– you will love the results!
