Jean asks:
I am 62. Have short fine fair hair. Good condition now. No perm for 1 year but would like something gentle to make hair look thicker and easier to style. Also have fine highlights. What sort of perm would you recommend.

I think a root perm would be the best option this gives a bit of a kick at the roots which gives the hair body. Also try styling your hair different like changing the parting or direction you wear your hair. This can also effect how thick your hair can look. You would probably be best asking your hairdresser about the styles as she will be able to help you more.

If you hair is fine and you would like to wear it up, then we would suggest that you do not wash your hair on the day as it will be too soft to stay up. Wash it the evening before instead and do not use an intensive conditioner as again, it will be too soft. Also, whilst styling apply a root thickening product to give your hair some oomph. Gentle backcombing is another trick to give your hair that much needed grip. If you visit a hairdresser, they may be able to thicken your hair with a hairpiece that blends to your own hair colour - its a great cheat!

Ask your hairdresser for a chunky style - jaw/mid length is best as growing it longer can make it look spindly. Think Kirsten Dunst her fine hair always looks perfect. Or, you can go down the fake root with Racoon hair extensions as these are a great way to get an instant thickness boost - a few carefully placed partial extensions around the crown area will give the impression of extra volume. Plus, fine hair can really benefit from colouring as the colour molecule sits inside the cortex (hair shaft) and swells it so that colouring can make fine hair feel much bulkier. You may also like to consider restructuring the hair. It is not actually a perm with curls but more of a wave and body effect. Your hair is set on very large rollers to give some bounce to your hair.
