Diana asks:
I have grown out my hair for about 2 years, and essentially it was perfect it was dark, long, perfectly healthy, and most importantly all one length. It is naturally curly, but I have become a master at getting it straight with an incredibly long, but effective method with rollers and a dryer. About 6 weeks ago, I went in for my last trim, and I asked for a little movement in my hair so it would be a little more textured and maybe not so boring..... and my long time stylist cut HUGE THICK layers in my hair! I have really short thick layers that are SO noticeable with my remaining long length. It looks like I have two different lengths of hair. One helmet and then my long under layers.... What should I do? How can I keep my length that I have wanted for so long and get rid of these layers? 6 weeks has done some improvement. But my longest layer is getting longer too, so the ratio kind of just stays .. Should I just keep on trimming it till both layers catch up with each other? Or can I leave it long????

I would blend your short layers into the rest of your hair to get rid of the helmet look! Other than that it is a case of having patience and growing your layers. The other thing you could do is have your length cut to your longest layers and then wait for the shorter ones to catch up. The other alternative is to have some extensions put in to save you waiting for it to happen naturally!

Eleanor asks:
I have very thick curly long dark brown hair without a fringe. My hair feels very heavy, but if I have much shorter hair it becomes very curly and unmanageable. I would be grateful for any suggestions that you can offer.

I think you should work with longer layers in your hair, this would be ideal as it would lighten it up and make it more flowing. I would suggest some nice layers in the front to open up your face starting from chin length and won or possibly a long sweeping fringe could make the hair look lighter and more interesting. Another suggestion is for the hair to be cut into a bit as well as this will help to give it a more lighter feel.

Warren asks:
I want to grow my hair a little longer to get it styled a bit more modern where traditionally I would have it cut short and given a basic style. I have decided on a change, I want it longer so it just goes over the ears but I want a modern style but my problem is my hair. It seems to be really thick and it seems every time I have a hair wash the ends of my hair even when dry tend to frizz or look static and will not remain straight. If I was to go to my hairdressers do I need to ask them for anything specific like to thin my hair out or do I just ask them for a modern look?

The best thing to do is to ask for your hair to be thinned out so the weight is not as bulky - the other thing I would suggest you do is invest in some hair straighteners. They really flatten the hair down and stop all of that unnecessary frizzing. Do not be afraid to use appliances like this as it really is the best way to get the look you are after
