Annemarie asks:
I have a long/oval face and very thick hair which even with top quality straighteners is very hard to straighten and to keep straight at the minute it is shoulder length but I am thinking of going for a bob style but unsure of what will suit my face and hair

You might want to try working with your natural movement or smooth some of the movement out by blow-drying with a brush. If youíre finding your hair difficult to straighten, then itís not the look for you. There are some options when if you wish to keep the hair straight. You could opt for a chemical straightening process that permanently straightens/relaxes your natural movement, such as the new Senscience Straight system (01282 683100). However it requires maintaining visiting the salon, costly and should only be done by a professional. Unless you wish to spend time and practice with the straightening irons, thereís no other solution. ...More >

Regarding what suits your face. Straight hair can sometimes emphasis a longer face shape. A little natural movement can soften a longer face shape and increase volume and body in to the hairstyle, good for a long face. The objective is to reduce the length of the face from fore head to chin. Try a fringe, long, choppy layered there are all types of fringes this will automatically shorten the face.

Focus on building width around the temple area down towards the chin or wherever the narrowest point of the face. Avoid height, as this will make the face appear longer. Layers are excellent for adding movement and softness to wavy, curly, and straight hair. Layers make any hairstyle look modern.

Cindy asks:
I am 46 years old and have slightly coarse, wavy and thick hair all my life. I have a round to oval face and I am hoping to find a wash and go style. I am considering a perm to give my style a tighter and all over curl as the top layer of my hair does not curl well only the underneath. Do you think a perm with large rollers would work well or just go for a shoulder length type haircut? Currently my hair is blonde (no highlights in over a year) and about shoulder length with tapering and bottom of the eye length bangs.

How lucky are you to have coarse, wavy thick hair all your life? Why don't you first have your hair cut into a style that would encourage your natural waves and use the correct styling products to help? Then if you still need more than certainly go ahead and have some soft movement put through your hair if the condition of your hair allows it. The salon would probably do a strand test for you prior to any perm. Go for it

Suzanne asks:
I have nape of neck, thick, curly, frizzy hair - of course, I want straight shiny manageable hair (we all want what we haven't got don't we)! I've tried chemically straightening in the past which was good the first time, but subsequently the system, used was different and not so good. I also have straightening irons, which are good, but I worry about drying the mop out even more. I was wondering if the natural relaxing kits that are marketed for Afro hair would be any good?

The best bet is to use a non chemical hair relaxer such as razzamatazz strait time, this will take care of the nappiness and problems that you have without the heart ache of using chemicals.
