Anne asks:
My hair was thick, wavy and black and previously all one length at the ends and I decided to get a hair cut. I told my hairdresser wanted long layers in the front and a trim and she ended up layering out my hair entirely so I have awkward volume at the top and thinner length at the ends. I'm trying to reconcile with it but keep missing my old hair. Is there a way I could style it so I can try and make the best of a bad haircut?

I am sorry to say but you have had it layered too much. Firstly go back to the salon for some hair taken off the length this will give you a stronger shape on the perimeter of you hair that will give you a more manageable shape. ...More >

Regarding the layers that are to short that give you awkward volume on top ask about having these skimmed with a blade or razor as this will help reduce the bulk.

The most important aspect is find a good hairdresser that understands what you want. Once these techniques are introduced into your style your hairstyling will be a breeze allowing you far more styling options than you have at the moment. Trying to work with what you have been left with by your stylist will probably only frustrate you further. Your hair is the most important factor when looking good, just as when you get dressed to go out what you wear is important as to how you feel. I always expressed to my clients that the hair cut and style can make a good outfit look fantastic, as they know a fantastic outfit can look poor if your hair is not working for you.

Agne asks:
I have oval-round face, my cheeks are quite big, my skin is light, eyes are blue-grey. My hair is straight and not so thick the ends of the hair become curly. What haircut and colour would suit me? (I know it would be better to see my photo, but I donít know how to attach it)!

You are right it is much easier to see you but here goes! An oval face shape suits most styles, if your cheeks are quite big you can either have a style that is longer than your jaw to give you some balance or something quite short & choppy to break up your style. ...More >

It also depends how much time you wish to take on your hair. Most styles do take some work to achieve the look.

You have not told me the colour of your hair so it makes colour choice a little more difficult. With colour you have 3 choices, lighter, darker or change the tone. If you fancy being a little lighter while spring is here, then think about having some lighter, warmer tones through your hair.

The best thing is to book a consultation with a good stylist, if you like what they say go for it, if not book into another salon for a consultation.


Justine asks:
I have a long face with brown hair to my shoulders. It has always been lovely and straight no need for straighteners about 5 years ago it started going slightly curly at the back. Since then it has become very curly at the back and remained straight at the sides. It is so thick and I have so much it is really difficult for me to straighten. What style would suit me with such difficult hair?

My daughter has the same hair as you. Curly at the back and straight on top. As your hair is really thick and shoulder length - the best and easiest way to wear it is longer than shoulder length. Grow it to bust length with lots of layers throughout and cut around your face. Dry it naturally to encourage the curl and just blow dry the front. My daughterís hair looks amazing like this and the envy of the school.

Good luck
