Babs asks:
I have waist length, fine, straight thin, naturally blonde hair and have never had a "decent" hair style. Had my hair layered slightly 2 years ago but hubby thought it didnít look any different just shorter. So layers donít seem to make a difference it always looks flat and boring. I have a heart shaped face but slightly round at the moment, am 25 just became a mummy and in need of a re style!! Please could you suggest something? I am so stuck

In most cases the best styles to suit fine, straight thin hair are blunt cut styles.

For example the classic bob would work well with this type of hair, and if your feeling particularly brave a graduated bob like Victoria Beckham can look fantastic, but this obviously means having a lot cut off. ...More >

Layers will tend to make fine hair look thinner, so this option is best avoided. I would also suggest booking a free consultation with your hairdresser and take some photos of styles you really like with you to discuss with them.

Kymberly asks:
I have just had highlights done - full head with foils. It looked fine at the stylists, but when I got home I noticed that if I pull my hair back at the sides, there are lines - almost like horizontal razor lines/checkerboard pattern caused by the contrast of the bleach and the natural hair. I cannot put my hair up and am self-conscious about my hair blowing in the wind. Will this be remedied by some regrowth, and/or is there a way to fix this? Is this an industry-standard effect of having heavy highlights? The highlights are quite dense and changed my overall hair colour level from a 6 to about a 8-9. The toner is also too gold, but that is the least of my problems, and I know what to do to fix that.

First things first, you should really go back to the salon that did these high lights and complain, as this is not acceptable. It sounds like from your description that the colour applied in the foils has seeped/bled out of the foils, creating the lines.

As far as fixing the problem, it can be made 'better' by having low lights put through similar to your natural colour. This will help break up the dense blonde and hopefully the lined appearance you have.

Cheryl asks:
I am a young looking 60 year old female. My hair appears to be 90% grey at the roots, I have colored my hair for years. My natural colour mixed in with the grey is medium brown, I have my hair colored a little lighter than medium brown with lighter high lights, I am ok with the colour, my hair is fine. I cannot wear my hair flat on top, it does not look good, every hair cut I get I hate, My hair is problem 5 inches on top and 3-4 on the sides and back, I backcomb it gently, can you suggest a good style for me?

Lets start with the colour first. From what you have explained the colour sounds about right considering your natural colour and grey. You could go lighter, as this will mean the roots do not show so obviously and quickly, but be careful not to go too light.

Cut wise I would consider going a little shorter on the top, as this will help you achieve more volume. You could also ask your hairdresser about the possibility of having some form of root/body perm. This will help give your hair more body and the appearance of thickness.
