You will benefit from a good blow-dry - which will give your hair the best foundation for your style rather than roughly drying it and then scraping some straighteners over your hair! Section your hair then blow dry using a Paddle Brush to get volume. Go over your hair lightly with your straightener starting half way down the hair shaft so you do not lose the volume you created. It is always best to start from a straight style even of you want curls or any movement in your hair. This will maximize shine in your hair by flattening your cuticles to get a smooth finish - you can then use your straighteners or tongs to create different styles. The next step is to create some waves in your hair so section your hair to the crown then start to use your Styling Irons to make waves. You need to take small sections of your hair, grip it on the ceramic plate near the root. GENTLY turn the irons 180 degrees and run it down the hair shaft taking care not to snag any strands. Ensure you keep hold of the ends of your hair (which will be pointing downwards) and move with the flat irons. This creates amazing waves and will last due to the heat of the straighteners. Separate and define the curls by spritzing with a Leave In Conditioner all over your waves. You will then need some pins and some Kirby grips, if you are not very confident with putting your hair up, a great trick is to pull your hair into a rough pony at the crown do not pull your hair all the way through as you will need to create a loop. Take sections of this loop and pin the curls roughly around the crown leaving shorter sections loose, to give you that sexy bed head look. Leave your hair looser - or pull some strands around the front of your face to give you a sexy come to bed eyes Alternatively if you are more proficient at hair up, you can pin your curls to your crown without a ponytail for that big hair, period look, just ensure that as you slide the pins into your air you push them back against the hair to give extra anchorage and staying power.

Adrienne asks:
I have thick coarse dry fizzy and wavy hair it is shoulder length I want to cut it but do not know what to get I was thinking a short angled bob short in the back and the front chin length so it will not take long to flat iron it. Would this be a good idea if not what should opt for my hair grows very quickly?

If you are prepared to spend half an hour each day straightening your hair then this cut will be fine for you. However, might I suggest that you go for a consultation with the hairdresser and ask for their suggestions for a style that suits your hair texture and will take the minimum of time to blow-dry or style each day. That way life will be easier for you.

Lynn asks:
I have fine past the shoulders (long hair) it is layered with bangs and it is fly-away. I have tried spraying my brush, using a spray conditioner and a regular conditioner, but to no avail. The conditioner weighs my hair down and I cannot get any body or fullness. It ends up looking like a wet poodle that used a straightening iron. I am a professional and I need help. I also want my hair to look thick and full. After everything, my hair is still fly away. I also have coloured or higlighted hair. Please help with an answer.

Even poodles get groomed from time to time and often end up displaying a lovely and sometime visually challenging style. Everyones hair can be managed it is just a case of finding out which products, method and daily care programme you need to apply each day or week to end up with the manicured look you want. Hair extensions can help if they are applied as hair enhancement to help add volume and texture to your own head of hair. It is very important to select the right type of extension method, one that will not damage your hair at the root especially on removal. It does not help to use too many different products or too many products at once, they may clash with each other and contribute to some of the problems you have described. Find a brand and use the items your need from that brand. If your hair is dry use a moisturising product, if your hair is greasy then use a product that will help this situation. We have consultants around the country, if you would like to discuss a hair enhancement program, please send us an email and we will direct you to the nearest consultant.

Finally, with the right help, you will achieve your overall objective.
