Becky asks:
I really need some help. I have medium length, thick ginger hair and I hate it, I have asked my Mum to get it dyed brown but she said no way and that ginger hair was a lovely colour. She would not understand. Its not nice getting pointed out in the street because of your hair colour, and anyway I have got GHDs but whenever I straighten it, it does go straight but I have a flick I cannot get rid of. plus I am scared that I am going to burn my hair or scalp so I rush it. I just do not know what to do or whether I should grow it a bit longer like maybe a bit past my shoulders because at the moment it is balancing on my shoulders which is why I get a flick. Please help me!!

I can understand that you might want to change your hair colour as we all like to experiment with different colours and styles. I would suggest as a compromise that you have some blonde highlights put through your hair so you will keep your natural colour but making it more sunkissed - this will look natural and sexy as well as keeping your mum happy too as it is simply an extension of your own colour as opposed to a whole head of colour

Bila asks:
Hi there I have below shoulder length extremely thick, frizzy and curly hair. I am a black but when I blow dry or brush my hair it goes into almost an Afro. I have tried to have different people cut my hair but they never seem to know what theyíre doing and usually try to straighten it before they cut it. I have thought about having it relaxed but I do really like my natural hair, itís just I donít know how to get it looking nice. Iíve used serums and oil and creams and nothing seems to tame the frizz. I also donít know what sort of cut I should get to make it look nice and also take some of the weight off. I want to keep the length and not have to cut it shorter. I hope you can help me.

The most important thing of all is to start with a good hair care regime. ...More >

Make sure you are using the best you can afford of the following moisturising shampoo, conditioner, treatment masque, leave in conditioner, blow dry cream, oil or serum. Professional brands deliver the best quality and you need to use much less so they work out far more economical.

Make sure you use the masque every week; leave it on for up to 20 minutes with a shower cap or warm towel, alternatively you can invest in the ego professional therapy tool which helps the treatment penetrate deep into the hairs cortex and a matter of minutes.

Rinse then apply the conditioner and make sure you comb it through before rinsing again. Use the leave in conditioner as well as the styling cream and serum or oil all mixed together, apply to the mid lengths and ends of the hair then comb through again so that the product is evenly distributed.

I would then section the hair in a twist so that you can encourage the natural curl/ movement and then either use a diffuser on medium heat slow speed or leave to dry naturally.

If you stick to this kind of pattern your hair will get the moisture it needs as well as maintain and restore its natural texture, then you will have more options on re-styles moving forward.

Many thanks and good luck

Beth asks:
I have medium to thick shoulder length short hair, which is longer at the back than the front. Iím wondering what kind of style would look good as I have a heart shaped face?

A long bob or ĎLobí, that is all one length, is a fabulous style, which will soften a strong jawline on heart-shaped faces. You can still tie it up in a ponytail and the length exposes the shoulders, which is very flattering. This style can also be worn in loose waves, using rollers or a curling iron from mid-lengths through to ends, which will keep the cut looking youthful. Alternatively, if you want to keep your current style longer at the back and shorter at the front, a soft, side-sweeping fringe will accentuate your eyes and draw focus away from a pointy chin. Ask a professional stylist to trim your fringe vertically, rather than straight across, and to keep the length between the eyelids and your brows.
