Sam asks:
I have an oval shaped face and have long blonde hair with no fringe at present; however I am thinking of having something different. I need something easy to do, that will not be in my eyes constantly and that will not need to be washed every day. I have had many different styles from long to short, fringe, side fringe and no fringe, the style I have been most happy with is the style I have now but I feel like there is nothing much to it and that I always take the easy option and tie it up. Please can you advise on a style that may meet my requirements? Thank you. PS - I like a style that is straightened as I always straighten my hair.

With your face shape you have a wide range of hairstyles at your disposal, however make sure your layers are shorter around the face to give the illusion of a more sculpted jaw line. I would not suggest that blunt lines are used for this face shape as it can be too harsh incorporate some tailored lines with softer edges. ...More >

As you said you are happy with the style at the moment so why not try to re-invent and edge up the style you already have by styling it differently.

Blow-drying for added volume:

Ensure that you use my Flick Tease to give height at the root and prevent hair falling flat to the crown.
If you are using my Poker Straight and Kinda Curly Styling Irons then always make sure that you straighten from the middle section of the hair rather than the root to prevent losing the volume you have created
Remember to always use a my Flat Iron Protection Mist before using any heated appliances

The easiest way to revamp your hairstyle is to cut a fringe. The full fringe is bang on trend this season and will create a drastic and definite change in your hairstyle without undergoing a radical transformation. Do not fret about having to wash hair every day; as my dry shampoo is great for getting the freshly washed look, perfect for oily roots and fringes.

Gail asks:
I have been thinking about having my hair cut into a bob for sometime now but I am not sure if with me having fairly thick hair it would work well I also have a round/oval face what styles would you recommend?

If you have set your sights on a bob stay away from a really short cut as this will accentuate the fullness around the jaw. Instead go for something under the jaw line to slim the face. Victoria Beckhams new longer brown bob is something that could work well with your face shape and hair type. It is a sophisticated look, yet a little bit edgy! To control the thickness I would suggest taking the weight out of your hair by incorporating long layers and feathering onto the face to soften the line. This will give you a dual hairstyle which you can encourage curl and movement or keep to the original straighter bob. This cut would work well on most hair types with the correct styling, although your hair needs to be kept in fantastic condition with regular treatments I would advise that you use my Messed Up Spray Wax (RRP 4.49) to get a bit of texture! This is a very versatile look, if you wanted it sleek and polished you would have to carefully blow dry down the hair shaft to get the cuticles as flat as possible whilst finishing with my Poker Straight and Kind Curly Irons and mist of Shine Head Shine Spray (RRP 4.49). If you were opting for a textured low key messy look you would just have to give it a quick blast with a hair dryer. Maybe give the front section a quick press with flat irons (or leave slightly wavy) and then finish with my spray wax. As with all heat styling remember your protection Straightening Iron Protection Mist.

Dee asks:
A few years ago I chemically burnt my hair. I was later told I had damaged my hair follicles the problem is my hair did grow back but very slowly and it has left my hair thin and patchy. Is there anything I can do? By the way my hair is kinky.

Sounds strange this one - hair can be burned chemically but your hair follicles should not have been affected whatsoever. They can only be damaged by severe skin burns. If your skin has been burned to leave patches on the scalp then your only option is to have a small amount of hair transplanting in the worst areas - this can be done with amazing results. However, if your skin was not burned then patchiness on the scalp and slow hair growth is normally associated with stress or hormone problems. My advice is to find out exactly what the problem is, by seeking the advice of a good Trichologist. They will then be able to diagnose a plan of treatment.
