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





Lynda asks:
When I was younger I had beautiful thick hair and since turning 70 it is fine and flyaway. The only time it looks good is when I go to the hairdressers to get my colour done. Is there anything I can do to keep it looking good all of the time?

If your hair is fine, it is better to try a short-to-medium version of a bob haircut or a pixie hairstyle with some teasing at the roots for added volume. These styles are timeless and quite easy to style at home. Lighter tones are easier to maintain, which is why many older women opt for blondish or caramel hues. Speak to your hairdresser and ask how often you should come for a colour and cut, and ask if they offer any promotions or discounts for mid-week visits.







Jakki asks:
I am a young at heart 61 year old with what was once naturally blonde hair, now white. I have had a variation on a bob for donkeyís years, reason being itís easy for me to manage and in the past looked really good.

Recently I started to experience hair loss so my once full looking bob is looking decidedly thinner, especially at the front sides. I do have very fine hair and donít really want to go short. Do I get rid of layers? I really donít know what to do and can never explain myself at the hairdressers. Can anyone tell me what I should be asking for at the salon, whether it be technique or style. HELP!!

Hi Jakki

Sometimes just taking a specific hair supplement can make a difference so try that first, also try a volumising shampoo and a spray in leave in conditioner. Give your head a good massage to improve the blood supply to your scalp when youíre shampooing too. I would suggest growing the layers down a bit, and perhaps go an inch shorter all the way round. Hopefully a combination of all of the above you will see improvement within a month. Good luck
