Glenda asks:
I have the thickest hair I have ever seen on a woman and have it long. It is very coarse and curly but it frizzes on the ends. I would like to wear it short but am at a loss as to what style! If I wear it short I have to put a ton of gel on it to keep it in order. I am 51 and would really like some help. I have gone to hairdressers that have refused to have me come back due to the difficult nature of my hair. Any answers?

Firstly if you have visited a salon that has refused to have you back as a client then I would say that you need to visit another salon!

Have a look at the style gallery and get some images of the looks that you like yourself. Then visit a good salon for a Consultation over the images you have. I would recommend having your hair bladed (razored) as this will help with reducing the bulk and weight of your hair making it more manageable. Once bladed correctly you should NOT have to apply loads of gel to style your hair. ...More >

If you have to, go for more than 1 consultation so that YOU feel confident in the hairdresser giving you the advice. A good hairdresser should be able to work with any hair and get the best result for your type of hair and life style.

It is important to look at your lifestyle and the time you are willing to spend on recreating the look after a visit to a salon as some styles are high maintenance.

Good luck

Katherine asks:
I am 15 years old and I really need your help! I have read through all of the queries and I could not find anything that will answer all of my questions. I really hope you can I have longish, (just below the shoulder blades) dark brown hair, it is very thin, and the thing I hate most I HAVE A COWS LICK I absolutely HATE it! I a side fringe, with one layer below my ears, I have a heart shaped face, VERY big cheeks and a pointy chin, I look young when I smile, I also have a big forehead and sometimes it looks like I have a receding hair line because of the cows lick. I would love to do something very different with my hair, without taking much off the length also I have a side parting on the right. I would like to get a fringe and lots of layers but I do not know if the fringe would sit right because of the cows lick some hairdressers say it would part down the middle and others say it would be fine, but I am not to sure!

I guess your cows lick is on the side parting that you wear. It also sounds to me that your side fringe is quite long right now. What I suggest is to go for a long or shorter bob length haircut with lots of layers to give you a great texture and movement - Also have a much shorter and THICKER side fringe that will detract from your high forehead and allow you to have almost a full fringe but you are working with the cows lick instead of against it. This THICKER fringe will also control the cows lick much better. Keep the side parting which always works with a heart shaped face. To detract from your more pointed chin, make sure you have lots of texture and volume above the shoulder area. I do hope this has helped you.

Cindy asks:
My husband is returning from Iraq I have lost 60+ pounds since he has seen me I want to wow him with new hair. It is shoulder length (all one length) dark brown now. I have a lot of hair (thick) should I go with layers? I have a natural wave that I straighten out and my hair tends to part in the middle which I hate! I want something wow new not like going dark brown to shocking blonde omg but like stunning wow! My hair is natural colour I have had highlights once many years ago but they have all been cut out now!

Wow Cindy - 60lbs ....Well done !!!..... Sounds like you have a great body to your hair too, make the waves work for you, and get some layers in it and for the colour keep it natural with just a few highlights, just go for it and make him a happy man..........wink.
