Hi there.

You didnít say if his hair was fine or thick or medium long , very long, so depending in that I have put a collage together for you with some options.
I have numbered the cuts so that you can tell the stylist what you want and have explained the terms used to help. ...More >

1&5 This is a very long surfer dude the layers are graduatedl ayers and it has no fringe , the base line sits on the shoulders and the stylist uses this as a guide the layers should fall as in the photo 5, so if this is the one then Thaiís what you ask for.

2, 3, 4, 6 The base line is just sitting on the collar and length at the ears is the bottom of the lobe. The layers are then cut within that perimeter.
The fringe should be cut below or above (depending on your preference) the eyebrow and then snipped into and cut slightly shorter on one side (at a slant) to give the illusion of a side parting if you are having a straight across fringe ask for it to be feathered.
is a close up of the fringe for number 2 on blonde hair (didnít know your sons colour)

is same as above but on thick hair

is very fine hair SAME STYLE



Umarah asks:
I have very thick, natural, African-american hair which I have dyed in the past (dark colors like black, brown, copper, etc). I want to achieve a smoky bluish-green color (photo link below) with out doing significant damage to my hair. I have no idea what color to even use or how I would do it. Iíd prefer to do it at home, only going to a salon if necessary. Do you have any tips or advice on what color to buy and how I would achieve the look I want?

To achieve such a cool colour on hair that is not only naturally coarse but also previously treated with chemicals and still maintain condition is a very big ask. I would advise against attempting a home care product to achieve this result. Consult a professional colour specialist and have the appropriate tenacity tests to see if you hair can handle this service and then have it done in salon. My initial feeling is that you wonít be able to achieve this until your hair is in better condition. I would recommend exploring other options till your hair is in better condition or has less chemical history on it.

Susie asks:
I have incredibly thick straight grey hair that no stylist seems to have a solution for .Over the years I have had it layered, textured etc as there instinct is always to remove the "bulk" but all this does is make it stick out further .Its much better when I let its own weight pull it down but because of having to have the roots permanently coloured every three weeks I end up with banding and the sheer volume makes colouring such a chore for them. As I approach my fifties Iím becoming increasingly desperate to find a style that will work for me .Iím very tall, well built with very wide shoulders and with an oval face .My hair looks best when up or swept away from my face at least on one side. By using products I can keep it fairly shiny and sleek but what is the right thing to advise my stylist because it seems every "chip in" just creates frizzy hair that sticks out even more and itís so strong that no style lasts for long without a ton of product. It goes its own way hours after every salon visit!

I would strongly recommend that you look into having the Keratin Complex treatment done. What this does is add keratin back into the hair which helps people like yourself with very thick coarse hair be able to manage the style better. It is important to point out that it is NOT a chemical straightening process, but it will help reduce blow drying time and difficulties dramatically.
