Trevor asks:
My girlfriend has light blonde hair, recently she went to a Hair salon and told them she wanted subtle low lights, they put low lights through her section and it went brown all on top, she has layers in her hair and you could see the difference in the colour. She bought a highlighting kit at Boots and went over it. But it looks a mess. We go on hol in a few weeks, she went to another hairdresser who said they could bleach bath the dark streaks then put blonde all over. She wants to get rid of the streaks but is very scared in case it goes wrong again. Is this information right which she has been given. only this is the 2nd time this year her hair has gone wrong and its really getting her down. She uses Kerastase bain de force to keep her hair strong.

Firstly, once your girlfriend went into the chemist and then tried to do the job herself she made the whole situation worse! Never ever colour your hair at home if you do not know what you are doing because you mess it up! It takes years to train to be a colorist and it is not a simple easy job. The mistake of the brown on top and the balance being wrong with the layers, your friend should of complained to the salon manager and that would have given the salon the opportunity to put it right, give further training to the member of the team that got it wrong and you and the salon would have been happy. Now you have added more colour to it, its all sounds a mess. If the salon does a beach bath on the dark pieces these will go orange, the rest of the hair will become dry, and the end result will most likely be a brassy uneven full head tint of a yellowy orange blonde, in poor condition. If this is what your friend wants then fine. But do not have false expectations of what the hair salon can do for you. I recommend that you find a salon with a colour specialist in it, who has trained and holds the L Oreal colour special degree, who I know would be able to colour your hair and give you the correct advice. This is not a job for an inexperienced colourist.

Ema asks:
I have very thick long brown hair, I straighten it when I wash it but naturally it is very frizzy. It takes me over an hour an to straighten! It looks nice when I straighten it- it is shiny and in good condition but when I just want to leave it, it is so flyaway and in between curly and wavy. Is it time for me to get it cut I would still like it long but in a more refined style. Which style should I go for? I am 15 years old.

I would like to suggest a style that would allow you to wear it straight, curly, down or up

I would use Julia Roberts as an inspiration V shaped at the back with long layers.

Sharon asks:
My hair is really really long and I want to cut it but keep it the same length. I want to have really short layers like a bob style also I want a fringe. What do you think would look right?

It might not look good to have a full fringe if you are keeping it really long, but a side fringe or wispy fringe may be fine. You could get some short layers that would give your style some movement and maybe have the hair shaped around the face to give a softer appearance.
