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!!

The pixie cut is very popular with tweeners so the answer is yes!! This age is an ideal tme 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. 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 didnt say if your girls hair was straight, curly , thick , fine ? all of the mentioned can have a pixie cut taylored 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 eybrow and the end just long enought to hook over ear .. The shorter fringe should be layered and although still asymetric 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 .... Marion

Iím 51, and heavy set. My hair is shoulder length, and kept in a ponytail most of the time. Itís all one length, has some greying, fine, w/dandruff, and oily scalp. I donít take very good care of it. When I wash it, I use a dandruff shampoo, and then Infusium (sp) shampoo for fine/oily hair. I donít use a conditioner, thinking that it adds to the greasiness. I have a wedding coming up next month where I will be standing in the line, and for pictures. I need help on what I can do, so that I donít look like I do every day. PLEASE HELP!

Thanks for your email, all the symptoms you are describing are very common and things we see in the salon on an every day basis. In fact i myself am a victim of fine hair with oily roots so i more than appreciate how difficult this hairtype can be to manage particularly when the weather is not great outside. ...More >
The best advice i can give, is to go to the top salon in your area and have consultation with the best stylist. Consultations are usually free of charge and you can pick their brains as to what colour and style they think will suit your hair and skin tone.
Without seeing your hair i can offer some general advice that will work for most people with the hair problems you mentioned. Firstly, I would suggest having a gloss colour. A gloss colour is a quasi permanent colour which will give a translucent coverage to your grey hair, making them less obvious and adding to the rest of your hair body and shine. The benefit of this type of colour over a permanent tint is the up keep, permanent tint covers grey hair better but it sounds to me that you are a low maintenance kind of girl and getting a gloss done will densify the hair without giving a definite regrowth as it fades so you can have it done when you have special things coming up, such as weddings.
My second tip would be to have a fringe, this doesnít mean having a school girl style there are many different types of fringe, one for almost every hairtype and face shape in fact. A long side fringe will add softness when you are wearing the hair up in a ponytail everyday and will slim the face when you wear your hair down on a night out.
My best tip for solving every day greasiness is to let the shampoo do the work, dont massage or vigourously scrub the scalp as you are encouraging more sebum. I recommend kerastase bain clarifant as an excellent detox shampoo to be used alongside your anti-dandruff products. You are right not to use conditioner on the roots as the natural sebum will be keeping that area healthy but then this doesnt tend to travel to the ends. Using a light conditioner like kerstase ciment anti usure will make sure the hair is detangled and easier to comb.
For styles on the wedding day i would look to the red carpet, jennifer anniston and sandra bullock are great examples of how fine shoulder length hair can be glamourous and full of life. i recommend getting a professional blowdry on the morning of the wedding as well, your stylist should have all the products and tools needed to give a photo finish look that lasts the whole day.
I hope this helps and if you are in the North West come in and see us and I can go through what shape and styles i think would work specifically for you.

I have a double crown that peaks up and I just hate it! My hair is usually quite dry so I put leave in conditioner, serum or some spray on it to calm it down. Itís naturally wavy so I always leave it to dry naturally usually putting a twist in it to enhance curls I recently tried the sock doughnut overnight thing, the curls turned out lovely but my double crown was really noticeable - how can I curl my hair without heat or too much product that will keep my double crown flat?! Help!

Longer hair will often help mask this problem as it will weigh the hair down. No matter what the length of your hair the alternative solution is inserting Velcro rollers to achieve your desired curl. Section the hair from the top of the crown into 20 sections depending on how thick the hair is in various directions and roll inwards towards the face. Start rolling from the top to the bottom of the hair to achieve a smooth finish. The hair that you are rolling should be as wide as the Velcro roller that you are inserting. After 1 or 2 hours in the hair, smooth out the hair with a paddle brush and although you didnít want to use too much product, gels and smoothing serums can help add weight to the hair and make them lie in the desired direction.
