P McCarron asks:
Hairstyle suitable for really fine hair?

Ask your hairdresser for a chunky style - jaw/mid length is best as growing it longer can make it look spindly. Think Kirsten Dunst Ė her fine hair always looks perfect. Or, you can go down the fake root with Racoon hair extensions as these are a great way to get an instant thickness boost - a few carefully placed partial extensions around the crown area will give the impression of extra volume. Plus, fine hair can really benefit from colouring as the colour molecule sits inside the cortex (hair shaft) and swells it so that colouring can make fine hair feel much bulkier. You may also like to consider restructuring the hair. Itss not actually a perm with curls but more of a wave and body effect. Your hair is set on very large rollers to give some bounce to your hair.





Joan asks:
I have always had fine hair, but as I have got older it is getting finer and thinner. What products would help to give it more body? Also, do you think having highlights would help?

This is very normal and nothing to worry too much about. Colour is a great idea and lightening the hair will swell the cuticle, but also give the illusion of more volume. Product-wise, there are a few on the market, but we find the Nioxon range very beneficial for fine and thinning hair. Itís been proven to encourage new hair growth and has a range of three-part system kits to help renew and repair.







Lily asks:
Hi there,

I have been blonde for sixteen years. I am 34, my hair is long and is in good condition but ever since moving away from London 8 years ago I cannot find a hairdresser that will give me the blonde hair I once had.

I used to have an all over high lift blonde tint and a few scattered highlights for dimension. I think hairdressers call it double processing. The colour was very light but was perfect. I had no banding and the re-grow was fine.

Any hairdresser I have tried the past eight years keeps trying to get me to have a fill set of highlights which I hate. I recently went to someone who understands what I was talking about but the tint sheís using isnít light enough and she keeps putting more and more foils in. After 3 weeks I feel that my hair looks a mess especially when I tie it up.

I donít get chance to go back home to London much due to work and children otherwise I would still go to my old hairdresser.

Can you please advise me what to actually ask for next time I go for my appointment?

I have even showed pictures in the past and I am still unhappy.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, xx

This is always a difficult one as the hair changes over the years so what once was perfect would need to be adjusted anyway. I would suggest if you havenít done already contact your old hairdresser and ask for the brand of colour as well as the level and tone, what developer it was mixed with and the processing time. Colour products vary so much and quite often we hairdressers have our own way of mixing and processing so it would be helpful to be exact to what you previously had and may help you get the result you really want. Also get the formula and processing time for the highlights, then book a consultation at a new salon armed with all the details and go from there.

Good luck
