Pratt asks:
I've got a roundish oval face, I've had a side fringe since as long as I've known. Which I find truly boring but very easy to maintain, I need an exciting fringe happening. I want to get a hot blunt fringe, but would it suit my face shape? Easy to maintain? I've got layered, long black hair which is wavy, thick, frizz prone and I'm petite figured. Need some advice!

Go for that hot blunt bang ......... and buy a ceramic iron to help you keep it straight on humid days you will look great.

Kerry asks:
I have thick mid-length ginger hair and it is really difficult to straighten and I use L’Oreal heat protector and Straightening cream but I still look fluffy and with flicks all over the place.

First question. What straightening iron are you using? If your hair is thick then you need a good quality iron that will reach approx 220C. If it will not reach this temperature then your hair will be hard to style. Do not get one that has a higher temperature than this otherwise you could easily damage your hair. Stage one. Ensure you use a good professional shampoo and conditioner like L’Oreal professional. Before blow drying take most of the moisture out of your hair with a towel. Apply some L’Oreal professional tec-ni art serum then blow dry your hair section by section, roots to ends to keep your cuticle smooth. Then section by section apply a small amount of the L’Oreal Professional heat protector before running the straightening iron across each section. If you follow this routine your hair will be smooth and glossy. Regards Gary

Cheryl asks:
I am a young looking 60 year old female. My hair appears to be 90% grey at the roots, I have colored my hair for years. My natural colour mixed in with the grey is medium brown, I have my hair colored a little lighter than medium brown with lighter high lights, I am ok with the colour, my hair is fine. I cannot wear my hair flat on top, it does not look good, every hair cut I get I hate, My hair is problem 5 inches on top and 3-4 on the sides and back, I backcomb it gently, can you suggest a good style for me?

Lets start with the colour first. From what you have explained the colour sounds about right considering your natural colour and grey. You could go lighter, as this will mean the roots do not show so obviously and quickly, but be careful not to go too light.

Cut wise I would consider going a little shorter on the top, as this will help you achieve more volume. You could also ask your hairdresser about the possibility of having some form of root/body perm. This will help give your hair more body and the appearance of thickness.
