IGNAS asks:
I have a lot of hair, which is long and thick. I want to slick it back, so that it has no parting, and leave the ends loose, however, when I do, even with product, my hair starts to part in the middle and I donít want that. I have tried using different products but nothing helps. Do I need to use some sort of product that I do not know about or do I need to get a certain haircut?

A slicked-back no-part style is very on-trend right now and a red-carpet favourite Ė with good reason: itís super flattering, highly wearable and can look both casual and glamorous, depending on how you wear it. Iím seeing an increasing number of brides request this look too, as it keeps hair off your face, works on most hair types and is flattering to most face shapes. A no-part style draws attention to your facial features by sweeping hair back and creating symmetry Ė whereas a parting changes the symmetry on your face, a no-part look can work for every face shape. The only types of hair I would advise against trying this style are very fine locks, which can risk looking too thin or balding when slicked back, and very curly locks, which have a tendency to fall naturally back into a parting.

Kate asks:
Hi, today I got blonde hair highlights for the first time! Iím happy with the outcome, but Iím going on holiday next week to Portugal. I am worried that the sun will lighten my highlights a lot, making it go a bleach/platinum blonde (and I donít want that to happen as Iím going back to school when I come home). I am also worried that the swimming pool chlorine will dye my hair green, and I know people say not to go under the water, but I am a very keen swimmer, Iím not sure what to do! Iím really concerned and I just need some advice to put me at ease!

Please make sure you use a good quality conditioner with protection. Wear a hat as much as you can and make sure you shampoo and condition your hair as soon as possible after swimming. A thick cream mask smoothed onto the hair is an added bonus for sun protection as it coats the hair temporalily. Enjoy your holiday.

Stefanie asks:
Hello, I have thick, middle to long dark brown hair. I never use heat on my hair, I shampoo it 1-2 times a week and condition it. My hair tends to be dry so I donít wash it more than that unless I have a lot of appointments. When I air dry my hair it always is slightly wavy but on two occasions due to the humidity I had wild curlyish hair (very specific curls). The curls started from the roots and became tighter curls to towards the bottom. They were not to voluminous which I liked and seemed wild. I have never felt that confident and good about myself, so I really want to find out how to make my hair look like that daily! I tried to copy two pictures into here, but unfortunately it didnít work. They are from a model that has exactly the kind of curls I am talking about. If there is a way for me to send the pictures that would be amazing! Thank you so much in advance and sorry for my English!

Hi Stefanie, Iím afraid I donít know how you can attach the pictures but the best thing I can suggest for defining natural curls is always shampoo and condition with moisturising shampoo and conditioner. Always comb the conditioner through before rinsing. Use a cream based product called something like curl cream or curl activator and apply to the middle, lengths and ends of your hair when wet. Comb through so as to evenly distribute the product and then if you can use a diffuser on a hair dryer just to take 50% of the water out. Then leave to dry naturally. Hair has memory and needs to be reminded that it used to curl once you have to help it remember. As your hair is drying twist sections or scrunch then in your hand this will help your hair retain the natural shape. It may take a month or too but it will happen. Perhaps a trim and some long layers would help?
Good luck
