Lauren asks:
I hope you can help, over the past year my hair has become really fine and gets sticky. As my hair gets greasy quickly I have to wash it every day which I think is making it worse as my scalp is broken and sore and my hair is always sticky. Is there anything you can recommend as Iím afraid of losing my hair? Kind regards Lauren Watkins

Hi Lauren,
If your scalp is broken and sore then you should go and see your doctor. Sticky and greasy hair can be caused my many things such as using the wrong shampoo and conditioner for your hair type or from using a product incorrectly. You should avoid washing your hair every day and you could also try using a dry shampoo that will clean your hair without making it too greasy.

Jennifer asks:
I have recently had my hair cut short (similar to that of TV presenter, Emma Griffiths). However, Iíd like to achieve a matte, texturised effect like Jessica Stroupís, as seen at the Young Hollywood Awards. Which products should I use? My hair is also quite fine.

Schwarzkopf Essensity Texturising Mud is fab


Anonymous asks:
I have had lice and nits and now the lice have gone but there maybe a few (not a lot since I have got a lot out) nits left and I have a hair appointment soon. Will the stylist notice them or mistake them for dandruff? And I study NVQ hairdressing but which is better BTEC or NVQ? And what qualifications do you need to open a hairdressing salon and how many courses do you have to take and how many years?

Where do I start?

The salon will NOT probably do you hair if you have any live creatures around. I would mention this so they can do a consultation on you first, so you are upfront (this stops any uncomfortable situation for both you and the salon). ...More >

Regarding your hairdressing education. Either of the two qualifications you mentioned are fine. BUT. The whole emphasis is on you. As a hairdresser and a professional we only get out of this profession what we put in. LOTS OF HARD work passion and enthusiasm.

My advice to ANYONE wanting to build a career in our fantastic industry is:

Find a placement either while at college studying or as an apprentice at the best salon you can find in your locality.

The best salon does not mean the biggest. I mean the one that has the best reputation and the most respected stylist or owner. What you learn from these people AFTER leaving college in invaluable.

I would work in a Professional Salon for at least 3-5 years building up clients and your skill base. No only in hairdressing skills but: personal skills, client communication, consultation, professionalism, image, confidence, and of course business skills that you will learn, sales, sales techniques, promotions all these things provide knowledge and understanding that is essential when you GO IT ALONE.

This may seem like a long haul, yet as I said at the beginning. IF YOU PUT THE HARD WORK PASSION AND ENTHUSIASM in from the start the fantastic opportunities that this industry have to offer open themselves up to you.

Good Luck. and a great question
