Rachel asks:
Iím in desperate need of a haircut every time I get it done I just say "cut that layers and the fringe a bit". So it looks lifeless really. I have mid brown hair - it comes to just above my bust and although the hair itself is quite fine, there is A LOT of it, therefore it frizzes badly. I straighten it every other day, or blow dry it straight. I am quite small, and have a long face with a high forehead and a long nose and chin. I really want more volume to my hair - can this be achieved with a lot of choppy layers?

If you have a long face then ensure that you have shorter layers at the front so it detracts from the length of your face. Keep your hair a little shorter so it doesnít drown your features and make sure that the layers around your face start from above your jaw line ...More >

Bobs and layered styles are perfect to give thin or fine hair more instant movement and volume, this means that the choppy layers and thick fringe of the style you liked from my gallery would suit you brilliantly

If you find it difficult to describe what kind of cut you want, always make sure you always take a picture with you to the salon

To fight the frizz you need to start taking some protection from all that straightening and blow drying. Use some of my Poker Straight Intensive Treatment with P2Fifty which will fight the damaging effects of your irons, whilst moisturising the hair shaft leaving it looking and feeling healthy

Itís so important to protect your hair, so before you straighten use my Poker Straight Flat Iron Protection Shine Mist on towel dried hair and then again, once youíve perfected your straightened look.

Another good way to avoid frizz is to use some climate control for your hair, as humidity can cause havoc! My Poker Straight Dehumidifier acts as an umbrella against moisture and stops frizz in its tracks, leaving your hair smooth, shining and manageable

Kerry asks:
I have thick curly hair which I canít do anything with. I have had Extenso hair relaxer on it which didnít work and have had it chemically straightened twice and hasnít worked. I have it slicked back in a bun with gel as hate it so much. I canít even use straighteners unless I go to a salon. Iím fed and in need of help had the same hairstyle for over 11years.

Start off by conditioning/reconstructing the hair with Joico K-Pak Reconstructor Shampoo and Conditioner, and styling products as it sounds like your hair has a lot of abuse. Hair can only take so much abuse, so you might want to consider cutting your hair. Very thick hair generally works better when the hair is layered. I would encourage you to love your texture rather than trying to achieve something nature didnít provide. When the hair is so thick you have to cut the hair much shorter or keep it longer to control curl and texture. Start by asking your stylist to remove the excess bulk through cutting. This will control the curl/frizzy texture and ensure better condition. Then maybe add semi or demi colour (colours that deposit only) to make the hair appear shiny and healthier. In short, cut your hair shorter, layers are great, condition is a priority but learn to love you texture.

Zoe asks:
I really want a fringe but have a cowís flick I have been told because of this itís hard to have a fringe but I had a full fringe when I was younger?

Never fear - you can still have a fringe with a Cowís Flick Ė all you do is to make sure the fringe is thick enough to give it the weight to keep it from bouncing up. Normally you would just have to quickly blow dry the cowís flick in the morning over dry hair to keep it in shape.
