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

Babs asks:

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.

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.
