Andy asks:
I am trying to find a new hairstyle because I have worn my hair long for a while now. My hair is not long enough to be pulled back or anything it is just down over my ears and down the back of my neck with bangs. I have dirty blonde hair that is slightly curly when I donít brush it, and though some people love it others donít like it at all. Iím looking for a style that people will still like but Iím tired of people talking about it looking messy. I have an oval face, and some hairstyles make me look like I have a big nose. What could I do?

First thing I would do is go through magazines (and the Style Gallery on this site) and see if there is anything you like. If you find something, take it into your stylist and ask them if it would work with your kind of hair and face. Most good stylists like to see magazine clippings or printouts as it helps them see where youíre coming from with an idea.

Talia asks:
Hi, I have always had coarse, poofy hair. I dry and straighten it like 3 times a week. Same routine for years. I am in the Army and was just re assigned to Germany. My hair has been so different ever since. Itís extra poofy and falling out (a lot). I use a Chi flat iron and dryer, I use heat protectant and condition daily with Joico. My hairstylist tells me I wash way too much (daily). I have no other option. I work out a lot (mandatory in the Army) and get sweaty. I have to wash daily. Any advice?

Hi Talia - Your using great tools and products, you might want to think about finding a different look by cutting it so you can wear it curly and have the option of using the tools you have. Push your hairdresser for more suggestions and if that does not work look for a new hairdresser.

Victoria asks:
I have just had a mobile hair technician charge me £150 for putting weaves in my hair. She has put a 3" row in the bottom of my hair and a very thick bulky top row in. She says this is a full head of weave extensions. Is this correct? The bottom small row is very loose and the top row is very thick and bulky and makes my head sore to lay on it. Surely this cannot be correct. She is refusing to do anything about it.

Firstly, properly installed hair extension should not have any long term discomfort for the client.

In my opinion a properly trained hair extension technician would be concerned about the comfort of the client, the overall look and presentation of the finished hair extensions, client satisfaction, confident in their overall professionalism, not shying away from dealing with any client discomfort, professionally resolve any problems. ...More >

A full head of hair extensions would usually mean that the extensions have been installed at least 1 centimetre away from the front hairline. A half head of hair extensions start from ear to ear and are installed at the back of the clients head.

System of application are: individually, tracks, partial or whole head systems.

Usually when a weave is done, the correct procedure is to apply several tracks to the bottom row near the back of the neck, so as to build up volume. The middle row a couple of tracks and the top row only one track. This ensures that there is no discomfort at the top of the head.

I suggest you ask your hair extension consultant to remove the tracks and place them the other way round; she should be willing to do this at no extra cost because she would have already prepared the cornrow tracks.
