Pam asks:
I have an oblong face, and am a little bit chubby round the cheeks, but everything else is fine. I also have straight dark brown hair. > What sort of hairstyle would suit me the most?

If you are seeing yourself with an íoblong faceí; it normally points to a longer shape to your face. Although you have some chubbiness around the cheeks; this will not tend to íround the face out, so over all you want to avoid shapes that will draw on your features and accentuate length. If you are wearing your hair straight avoid gong too long on the sides and front, as this will only draw down on your face. Some longer layer for movement could be just what youíre looking for. As for the color; not knowing your skin tone, eye colour etc; I would suggest a consultation with a local professional that you feel comfortable with; they can give you incite as to why certain colours will work for you best.

Nicola asks:
I have fine hair which tends to have kinks and goes wavy, I had it cut in a bob and would really like to wear it straight and smooth, what are the best products and tips to blow dry it straight.

The obvious solution to straight hair is straightening irons, BUT...... these can harm and damage the hair. Try whenever possible to blow dry using a round bristle brush keeping the dryer at all times blowing downwards, this will keep the hairs cuticles a lot smoother. The same applies if finger drying or rough drying. There are also products on the market to help achieve straighter hair, try Nicky Clarke smooth it over, and it comes in either a serum or cream like texture. Remember to use little, you can always use more.

Becky asks:
I wonder if you could help me? I am 16 and am currently growing my hair out for my cousinís wedding. Itís getting pretty long now, in the middle of my bust and shoulders. Itís kind of wavy and I have layers and shorter sections at the front. I want a complete change of style for the summer. My face is oval shaped, but I have very defined cheek bones. I am plumpish too. What would you suggest?

If you have an oval faces try not to opt for a style that is too long, as this will drag down your features. I would say you can go as long as shoulder length with lots of volume, so itís probably a good idea to have a bit of a chop before the wedding. Your face is a very versatile shape and is on par with the heart shaped girls, so youíre super lucky in that there are quite a few style options you can choose from. Make sure your layers are shorter around the face to give the illusion of a more rounded jaw line. I wouldnít recommend blunt lines as they can be too harsh for your face shape - incorporate some tailored lines with softer edges to suit your body shape you could adapt the super trendy sleek sharp bob with a fringe, by having a longer length at the front and a softer side fringe. You could also either go wavy or straight: if you opt for the poker straight look accentuate the sleekness with a quick spritz of my Shine Head Shine Spray (£5.99 75ml Boots)
