Jesper Christensen asks:

I have a certain question about a hairstyle I am trying to pull off.

I am a guy with long hair, and I am trying to make my hair look a little bit more "dressy" I have the "standard" long hair, where I have the "split" in the middle, so my hair falls back down on my 2 sides (Hope you get me) Iíve been inspired by Paul Levesque to try his hairstyle (when he had long hair) But I am not sure how I am supposed to pull it off.

Here is a picture to show what I mean:

As you can see, his hair is slicked back, both tied up and when it is loose. How do I slick my hair back like he has done it? Whenever I try with a brush and comb, it will easily fall back down to its old position.

My hair is the same texture as his, so that is not the issue.

Also, when I tie it up, do I need to use any product? He is clearly using a product when it is tied up, could you tell me what you think he is using? And can you tell me how I achieve that slicked back look with my hair?

Thank you so much in advance

If you need elaboration on my question, please get back to me so I can!

Jesper if you start by blow-drying the hair back that helps and the hair. Remember the shape you create between being wet and dry. Then use a gel I would start with a medium hold apply when the hair is 80% dry the using a vent brush dry the product into the hair. Then apply again and brush with the vent. That should do it, if not go for a stronger gel.

Julie Green asks:
Please can you give me some advice. My hair used to be a lot thicker than it is now, I foolishly let a hairdresser loose with thinning scissors on my hair about a year ago and it has never recovered. It is all different lengths, I used to have a lovely one length bob but coming down longer at the front, now because of all the different lengths (and admittedly straightening irons) the hair at the sides does not grow and has snapped off half way down! I am desperate to get back the full thick looking bob I used to have, now no matter what thickening shampoo and products I use my hair remains flat and lifeless, please, please can you give me some suggestions of styles that I could try? I thought about having a drastic short bob and starting again but again, I donít know if this would work.

Start by having the haircut back into a bob, invest in some professional shampoo and conditioner for fine to normal hair rather than thickening ones. Make sure your eating a varied diet and perhaps start taking a supplement specific for hair. It takes a long time to grow out the effects of the thinning so best to have a clean slate. Also invest in a straightening iron with temperature control that way you will do far less damage to your hair with heat.

Magda asks:
Hi its Magda from UK. I have keratin straightened hair. A few days ago my hairdresser bleached my hair blond. The result is devastating. My hair is thin and ends are totally burned. It looks very frizzy in the end and feels like plastic. She gave me olaplex home hair treatment but its not helping much. Now she offered to cut the ends and use intensive olaplex treatment. I was wondering what else I can do to help my hair go back to "normal". Any products? Iím not supposed to use any with alcohol as it damages the keratin. It takes me twice much time to dry my hair as well. Thank you for any help

Magda I am so sorry this has happened to you, but apart from being patient, using professional shampoo, conditioner and treatments weekly and taking a specific hair supplement there is nothing you can do. You will notice a difference in a few weeks and then have a trim. I would ask the stylist in advance next time to do a strand test on the hair first to check your hair is strong enough.
