Dax asks:
I have curly non-African thin hair (ringlets). I am trying to find a way to wear it semi straight. I try to stretch out the curls when I dry my hair but it still ends up being just as curly. Then I semi-straighten it with a straight iron, however, it ends up being extremely frizzy. When I try to put in product to control the frizz, the dampness causes my hair to curl again into ringlets. Any suggestions on how to control the frizz without making my hair curl too much?

Hi Dax.

This can be quite a problem without knowing the knack for it. ...More >

As soon as you add any moisture after styling ( even when semi straightening as you say) the moisture will bring your natural curls straight back.

I would try a very light hold gel mixed with a small amount of serum and apply this to your hair while damp.

Then you have two options.

Keep running your hands through your hair until almost dry. This will reduce the natural curl without heat ( just the heat from your hands) as your hair is fine.


Use a hairdryer on a very low heat and airflow setting and again using your hands work them through your style.

One fantastic product that people with naturally curly or wavy hair are raving about is My white magic 3 in 1 foam.

A shampoo, conditioner and styling product in one.

Apply this all over your hair, every other day and still use the same process described above with your hands with or without heat.

The moisture and protein as well as the styling product will hold your hair in a soft relaxed shape without making it frizzy.

It provides the instant day after beach look waves or definition to any curly wavy hair. Without frizz.

Good luck Dax.

Let me know how you get on

Nicolle asks:
Would both of my daughters (one 11 and one 12) look good with a pixie cut? One has brown hair, and the other blonde. They want their hair like Miley Cyrus! Generally, like a pixie cut but one of them wants their bangs swooped over to the side and the other one wants short hair on the sides and her bangs on the shorter side but still being able to pin them up! Thank you so much!!

Look forward to putting your response on the site,

Many thanks

The pixie cut is very popular with tweeners so the answer is yes!!

This age is an ideal time to experiment on styles to get used to finding out what suits their face shape and personality etc. It also helps avoid making a drastic hair style change when older (we all know how that can go!) and its fun ...More >

In Reference to Miley Cyrus ... her particular style is VERY short on her temples and nape so I would suggest some thing a bit longer, still shaped over ears and nape , but not necessarily buzz cut(as hers is ) You didnít say if your girls hair was straight, curly , thick , fine ? all of the mentioned can have a pixie cut tailored to hair type . Re the long Side fringe(bangs) the fringe should be a graduated cut chipped into. A good guide for length is for the start to be on eyebrow and the end just long enough to hook over ear ..

The shorter fringe should be layered and although still asymmetric not so steep.. I suggest you look on the hairstyle finder tab on this site ..there are lots of variations and you can have a bit of this, and a bit of that, makes it more individual for your girls.

They can play around with products too and clips sleeking it back, funking it up and pinning the sides to mention a few options .

Hope they love their new haircuts ....

Nicolle asks:
My hair is a long bob with a thick blunt fringe and I usually wear it straight, I am bored with it at the moment but am trying to grow it long. I have got lots of work events over the next month that are really glam - would you be able to give me a couple of tips or ideas of ways that I can dress my hair up. I will be wearing cocktail dresses, am in my early 30ís and need to dress to impress but still look professional for my clients.

There are so many thing you could do with your hair, the list is endless.

Itís so easy to fall into a comfortable habit with your hair, so depending on where your parting would usually be, why donít you consider moving the line to a new position? Hold your new parting in place by blow drying heat protection and mousse into your damp hair. Now your hair is prepped, ready to create beautiful soft waves. Leave your fringe as it is and tong your hair by taking small vertical sections at a time, this angle will allow the hair to drop softly around the face instead of creating a deep wave, twisting the hair as you work your way around the tong will loosen the wave even further. Work in neat section, all in the same direction from the front to back of the head on both sides, this will create a beautiful soft wave that would grace any red carpet. The mousse in the hair will give you that extra hold to last for the whole day. ...More >

You now have two options depending on how creative you are feeling. Either brush your hair through with a vent brush adding a drop of serum for that additional shine and control, you want your hair to shimmer and enhance the waves. What you will have is a beautiful coiffured classic meets modern 30s inspires wave that will turn heads.

For a different look, back comb the whole head starting from your parting, working you way backwards. Gently brush hair out and tease into a messy beehive, donít go too high, keep the look elegant and young. Pin up at the back and soften the look by leaving fine strands floating in the air. Another look that will seem effortless and will stay all day with a good passing of hair spray.

Two looks that will carry you through your day from the office to your business events.
