Silvia asks:
I have thin, slightly wavy, blond hair and I cut it 3 months ago - now it is growing and I do not want to cut it again, but let it grow for some time. The problem is that, since there is a wave it is not easy to find a hairstyle that will make this type of hair look ok. When it is shoulder-length, or some kind of bob... and I do not want to straighten and smooth it all the time. Is there such a hairstyle at all?

For your hair type I would strongly suggest working with its natural movement and wave if you do not want to constantly straighten it. Taking the hair from wet, simply apply a light control product such as Wella Professionals High Hair Crystal Styler, perfect for giving your locks definition and an alluring brilliance. This style is easy to maintain and the natural look allows the hair to remain in healthier condition and therefore grows better, as there is no direct heat applied during the styling process.





Sara asks:
I have been wanting to get something done to my hair for a long time but do not know what. My hair is all one length and very long, reaching all down my back but also very thick and naturally wavy. I am afraid that if I get it cut into layers it will make my thick hair poof out more than it already does. Would getting it feathered be any better?

This is right up my street!

I totally agree with you traditional layering techniques with scissors WILL make your naturally curly hair have more volume. ...More >

At the moment your hairs length and weight has a controlling factor over this, but once weight and length in the layers is removed YOU WILL HAVE VOLUME.

I would recommend having a blading technique (razor may be more known). A blading technique called internal diffusion is a method of removing weight yet retaining length. This method creates internal layers inside your haircut and will not increase volume if done correctly.

In fact it will make your hair easier to style either straight or wavy.

Give you a variety of looks from the one hair cut

Bring your hair to life as this technique makes hair malleable.







Lilliana asks:
Is it true that a method for choosing the color of highlights for your hair is to match the highlights to the flecks in your eyes? If not, what color suggestion would you recommend for Asians. I have jet black hair and am very tanned. I was thinking of a rust color or bronze or possibly red.

It is true that eyes can play a part in colour selection, but it only part of the colour consultation process. Skin tone, natural base shade and fabrics also play a vital role. As individuals we all have colours that complement our personality, yet we also have colours that are just a no, no. ...More >

That been said I believe that you suggestions below could work.

A rusty bronze could work very well and may be more effective in the less is more application.

Sometime bolder hidden colour sections can be very seductive and transform a look for an individual. Given your hair tone and natural shade I would be tempted to go with the hidden colour technique that allows the colour to show through as your hair moves. This way the overlaying colour (colour on top of your head) stays its natural base shade. Your rusty bronze shows through as your hair moves.

As always get a professional colour consultation from your stylist to ensure complete satisfaction.
