Sarah asks:
I have got naturally curly hair, which is straight at the root. I currently have a side fringe, but am thinking about getting rid of it. Iím so confused on which style to have as I donít like it straight, as itís thin. It is below the shoulder, half way down my back. What styles do you think would suit me?

Without seeing your hair it sounds like you may benefit from having some of the length cut off and some layers adding.

This will help your hair look and feel thicker and at the same time, because by removing weight from the hair it should be easier to curl. ...More >

Layered bobs are also very fashionable at the moment and for the summer.

Kate asks:
I have long thick naturally curly hair and am constantly being told that there is not a lot that can be done with it styling or cut wise due to the curl. Can you dispel/confirm this myth and give me advice on what to ask for at the hairdresser?

Firstly, find a new hairdresser as the advice you have had is rubbish!!!

Natural curl or wave is beautiful when the correct technique is applied. I would recommend that you buy (if you have not already got some) some of the latest magazines with curly hairstyles in. You could also look at the style gallery on the site. ...More >

Here are some very important factors to remember with curly hair.

1. Adding layers into your hair can increase the volume and width of your hairstyle. Curly hair does not like this!

2. This impactís on the styling routing and overall look of the finished style.

3. As there are many ways of technically cutting curly/wavy hair for a desired look, without actually seeing the amount of curl you have, it is difficult to recommend which technique should be used for best effect.

Some suggestions:

Weave cutting internal layers into curly/wavy hair place layers inside your style ( in the interior) and will not increase the volume or width as they open spaces within your hair cut to allow your curl/wave to fall more freely, looking more natural (Gloria Estefan).

Skimming internal layers into your internal shape with a blade or razor can increase or decrease curl depending what you want?

As I said above a good stylist SHOULD be able to advise what are your best options and give you something beautiful.

Good luck

Phallon asks:
I have thick frizzy but like wavy hair I need a new cut. Right now it is about three inches past my shoulder I need something that would take away the frizz so when I feel like curling it, it wonít go huge! My hair is impossible.

I think firstly I would strongly suggest booking yourself some intensive conditioning treatments to try and reduce the frizziness in your hair, and continue this at home as well.

Cut wise I would suggest having your hair thinned out as opposed to layered. This will help reduce the thickness and help you curl your hair, without the style becoming too rounded.
