Ella asks:
I have an incredibly thick head of hair, and it is coarse in texture. I would like it cut as a bob, have tried several hairdressers, but they all cut my hair the same length from the inside to the outside of my head and it looks like the end of a broom once it has dried. Is there a style where if it was cut fractionally shorter on the inside, and slightly longer on the outside, it would sit flatter against my head rather than stick out an inch and a half, my hair is straight, and thick.

What you need to ask for is for your hair to be undercut, which will take the bulk away from underneath. Book the best salon in your area and explain this is what you would like. Alternatively, you could have some graduated layers in the bob to give a better shape, then ask the hairdresser to go through the hair just at root area all over with thinning scissors. This means you maintain the bob shape but the hair should like flatter and smoother.

Ruby asks:
I have waist length brown hair but I have wanted it ash blonde for ages. I have tried going to a salon to have it highlighted many times but it still is not that pale blonde that I want. I have been told that I should not have an all over bleach because my hair is so long it will get severely damaged, I have thought about getting blonde extensions or weaves put in but I do not know much about them. Please help me get that long Rapunzel blonde hair that I so want.

It would seem as though your issue is one of colour and not length or volume. I would recommend going to a salon that specialises in colouring long hair. They will be a bit more expensive, but it will be worth it because they will be able to deliver what you want without damaging your hair. Not all salons specialise in this so ask to see some evidence of their work. Hair extensions can help to give you highlights, but they would also add volume. This could render your hair too thick and unmanageable. There is also the added risk that if they are not removed properly, you could end up with hair loss which, in turn could thin out your hair. I would seek a consultation with a specialist first of all.

Tej asks:
My hair is curly, thick, long, prone to split ends because I straighten it so much and it is unbearably frizzy. I am looking for a style that will minimise the thickness and work for both curly and straight hair that requires little effort to work well. I like the length of my hair (just above my butt) but I am prepared to chop it off to just below shoulder length if need be. My face is small and quite round which none of the models these days seem to have- I want something that suits me, please help!

Geometric or square layers work best, both should be over directed back to retain extra length at front. Have it cut to just above shoulders and get your stylist to take 1 inch sections, and sharply chop hair in at roots and midlengths of your hair. How much will depend on the suitability and thickness of your hair. This will make the hair more interesting with a randomness and structure to your cut which will work both curly and straight.
