Chloe asks:
Hi, so my natural hair colour is a dark blonde/ light mouse brown, I normally colour it medium browns/ chestnuts but despite this my hair is actually really quite healthy and strong. Its down to my chest and the strands are thinner but there are a ton of them so its thicker than it looks, I also trim the ends really regularly. My roots are at my ears and my sisters wedding is just around the corner so I wanted to get it dyed professionally rather than slapping another brown dye on top and hoping for the best. Because I decided to pay to have it done I wanted to go blonde (honey blonde, nothing too light, similar to the blonde my hair was when I was younger). I went to the salon and showed a photograph of what I was looking for and the stylist told me that to achieve that look I should get highlights and that he would strip out some of the red/ brown dye on the ends. Obviously as I have never gotten it done professionally before I have no frame of reference as to if that would work so I just agreed and let him do his thing. When he finished blow drying it I could see that it wasnít what I wanted, but Iíve gotten dramatic cuts/ colours before and know you donít always love it immediately, so i paid and left. The more I look at it the more upset I get, because my natural roots are duller they look grey brown next to the highlights which look horrible and cheap/stripy. Funnily enough I donít mind the redder colours at the ends but I HAVE to do something about it before the wedding. I donít know what to ask for, or if I should go back to the same stylist or a different one. I donít know if I should get more highlights to get rid of more of the "brown" or if I should be asking to have my hair dyed. Will dying the hair blonde mess with the highlights that are already in? I donít want to endlessly waste money trying to fix this but I do not want to have to live with wedding photographs of this hair forever... please please help, any suggestions are welcome.

Oh poor you Chloe

If I was you I would call the salon and go back not to complain but explain that you are disappointed and can they help and I am sure they will advise and do it for a discounted price. I wouldnít suggest going more blonde at this point but perhaps as you liked the reddish tones have a semi permanent reddish colour over all of the hair, this will make the dull grey brown vibrant and make the highlights look less stripy but still give you an overall multi tonal effect and its not to drastic. Then after the wedding have a big think about what you want to do before trying anything else, semi colour is easy to maintain and means there is a lot less commitment time and financially wise than highlights. ...More >

Good luck and I hope you feel fab for your sisters wedding

Hi Sam

I think itís a great way to have style options as well as to loose some of the thickness and weight. You could perhaps think about having it as a full undercut at a later stage? ...More >


Cherie asks:
I currently have thick curly hair to my shoulders. I have a high forehead but I also have a middle parting. I donít know the best way to style my hair as I currently feel that it makes my face look round. I have recently had it cut due to the fact that the ends were dead, I was happy with my long hair but now having had it cut has made me feel insecure. Therefore, I donít know what to do with my hair and what style would suit my face best.

Hi Cherie, Why donít you try a middle parting and a long side fringe and perhaps a little bit of colour. I think that when you go from long to short most of us feel insecure but a few little extra changes and you will love it Iím sure. Good luck
