Angus asks:
I am a 17-year-old boy who was thick, curly big hair which is quite long. I dyed it a darker shade of brown than my natural colour in the summer and some of it still remains in a nice light kind of way. I have straigtheners but I think I need a haircut. I would like to get a 60s/70s style quiff like Jake Gyllenhaal's in Zodiac, would this possible with curly hair?

Yes you can achieve this, however, you may need to work the quiff a little if your hair is too curly. I suggest that you take a photo of Jake to your hairdresser, and create a look around that, taking your curly hair into consideration, as some parts may need to be cut shorter to control your hair and make it easier for you to achieve a great look with ease.

Ros asks:
I have naturally wavy/curly hair, for a while now I have been wearing it straight. I have thick hair and have had it thinned quite a bit and layered quite a bit too, my layers are different lengths. I think the blading technique was used so the layers are very varied, some are very short. Since having this style I've noticed that my curls have more or less gone. I would love to have my curly hair back, what do I need to do? Do I need to just grow the hair out again? I have tried scrunch drying it using curling products but its not like it used to be.

The blading technique can increase or reduce curl depending on how it is applied while cutting the hair. If you are experiencing the natural curl you have been less apparent, then I would suggest having some layers put back in using scissors. This will thicken up the ends of your hair much more and strengthen the internal shape of your hair cut. ...More >

This should promote an easier curl result.

Also do not scrunch your hair from wet through.

After washing towel dry your hair to about 60% dry if you can. Excessive water in your hair will only weigh down your hair while drying reducing the curl result. After towel drying apply Professional Techni art Curl up memory about the size of a fifty pence piece in your hand and gradually apply it to your hair. Before diffusing take sections and twist them around your fingers until you have completed all the hair on your head. Then apply heat from the hairdryer with the diffuser and your curl will be fabulous.

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
