Katrina asks:
I had my hair done for my sisters wedding, my sister wanted me to have it pulled back with long curls falling down my back, after several tries, I still had straight hair, the curls would be falling out before I got out the door. The hairdresser said that I have problem hair and I will never be able to have curls. My hair is fine, but I have a lot of it, can anyone tell me if there is anything I can do to make my problem hair hold curls?

It is true that some hair is more resistant to being curled but we have never had anyone whose curls are coming out before they leave the salon. We do a technique with GHD irons and GHD products where the curls that we achieve would definitely stay in for a couple of hours at least. It does take quite a while to do but the results are fabulous. Is your hair coloured? Sometimes if your hair is resistant and with no colour it does make it more difficult to curl. Colour tends to soften resistant hair and make is easier to mould. You could also look to have some movement put in your hair with a soft perm result if you are looking to have permanent curls.

Michelle asks:
I have been having my hair highlighted for years now. I recently changed hairdressers and after she put highlights in my hair and washed them out with shampoo she applied a toner to my hair. I asked her why she was doing this as I have never had a toner before and see said it was just to blend the colour in and condition it. Is this correct or did the hair dresser make a mistake with my hair. The colour does seem fine now?

It really depends on what colour your hairdresser was trying to achieve when they used the toners. We use them to refresh any highlights to keep them looking fresh & blonde. We often use a toner when highlighting a clients hair, otherwise what can happen is the new highlights make the old ones look dull and overall the effect is not as good as it should be. They also condition your hair and give great shine. You say that the colour is fine so it sounds like you are happy with your hair which is great; it just seems that maybe the reason for you having a toner was not explained.

If your hair is fine you will need to be careful with a perm. Make sure that your stylist does a porosity and elasticity test before perming. An acid perm might be your best option as it will be gentler on your hair. Your style will depend on your face shape. The best thing to do is to do find a picture of something that you like, take it to your stylist and ask them if it will suit you. If not how they can adapt the style to suit your face.
