Kerry asks:
Up until recently I used John Frieda Sun streaks highlighting gel on my hair to lighten it in the sun whilst working abroad. I have now found that it has been discontinued. Could you please recommend a similar product?

I am really sorry but I believe that any colouring or bleaching of the hair should only be undertaken by the professionals! There is an art to colouring as hair can become dry, brittle and frizzy if its applied incorrectly. I do not know why John Frieda discontinued their product and I would not be able to recommend another brand. If you are short on money, then why not pop into a salon and be a model - salons are the same the world over and are always looking for models!

Diane asks:
I have mid to light brown hair. I wanted ivory coloured highlights as well as another mid blonde tone. I cannot remember the name of the product she used but she put me under the heat lamp for 20 minutes. Unfortunately, my highlights came out gold. The hairdresser said I must have a lot of red in my hair. Can you recommend either a product range and/or an optimum timing to achieve my ivory highlights?

20 min under a heat lamp should usually be adequate for most tints. From what you say it sounds like she used a high lift tint and maybe a bleach or maybe a bleach based product like majimeche (L Oreal). The bleach sounds like the one that came out golden this could probably have been left to develop for a bit longer about 5-10mins until the gold has lifted out. Then if your hair is still quite warm an ash toner would probably lift out the final bits of colour then you should have the ivory colour you wanted.

I have very fine hair and find it hard to find a style but I am a bridesmaid very soon and I would like a updo what would you recommend.

If you hair is fine and you would like to wear it up, then we would suggest that you do not wash your hair on the day as it will be too soft to stay up. Wash it the evening before instead and do not use an intensive conditioner as again, it will be too soft. Also, whilst styling apply a root thickening product to give your hair some oomph. Gentle backcombing is another trick to give your hair that much needed grip. If you visit a hairdresser, they may be able to thicken your hair with a hairpiece that blends to your own hair colour - its a great cheat!
