Zoe asks:
My hair is very flat and I straighten or curl it nearly every day. I want it cut into an easy manageable style that is different to my usual layers. I would like something that would lift my hair and give it more body. What do you recommend?

Straightening or curling your hair everyday is a bad idea as the heat from these tools will be taking away the essential moisture that you hair needs, and eventually the signs from all of this styling will begin to show - if they havenít already! I think you should begin by using a good conditioning treatment such as Fudge Dynamite (£10.50) at least once a week. This will reconstruct any damaged areas and restore your hair to a healthier condition. As for the cut, why not try a relaxed, long, layered bob recently seen on celebrities like Diane Kruger and Anne Hathaway. Styles like these are best worn lose and wavy, and this can easily be achieved by using a diffuser attachment on your hairdryer. Diffusing gives hair movement and body, and can be achieved on a low heat setting and so is a lot kinder to your hair. Finally, work some LíOreal Techni-art Fix Move (£11.30) through you hair to set and define your new style.

Lynne asks:
I have quite fine, just above the collar bone fringed bob and are bored with the style but can't have it cut short as I am getting married in February. Do you have any ideas on what I could do with it or even any suggestions for putting it up?

I would definitely keep your hair longer as this will give you more scope for different styles and options.

If your hair is fine I would suggest perhaps having your hair set first to create volume and texture to your hair, then you could try having the back put up into some form of pleat and at the same time keep your fringe and sides out for softness. ...More >

I would strongly recommend booking a couple of trial runs with your hairdresser first to make sure your happy with the style.

Lakshmi asks:
I have a big round face with a wide cheek area. My hair has been a total mess. I have fine, thin straight black hair and after my first child, it has become worse. I desperately need a hair makeover but have no clue about styling or the cut that would suit me. I also have a wide/broad forehead which makes me look bald. Please advice what kind of cut and style I need to go for.

First of all congratulations on being a Mum the hardest but most rewarding job in the world! Now trying to find time for yourself and your hair Iím sure is not easy. ...More >

You have a couple of issues here; first your hair is fine. Take a good look and see if you are trying to hold on to too much length which could be dragging on you. If you donít have a lot of time or hair, you many want to look at a shorter cut that can be more wash and wear. As for your round face, donít despair! What you need is an hour or so to yourself guilt free! Get a family member of a friend to look after the little one while you go for a professional consultation at a salon youíve always wanted to go to. Let them give you a couple of options and donít be afraid of taking photoís from magazines to let them know what you like yourself, even if the hair is nothing like yours, they will have an indication of what you like and you can work towards a goal togetherÖ.If a salon is not willing to give you this time and advice, move on to one that will.

Above all keep it simple and smart. Something you donít have to spend time on but can feel good about being a new mum is a full time job; so remember; every job has a day off every now and then, so work some you time into your schedule to pamper mum. Youíll benefit and consequently everyone around you will too
