|Sophie asks: |
I have had blonde highlights in my hair since it started going dark, about ten years ago. I have started travelling a lot and decided to home dye my hair blonde. It worked really well and actually added condition. I have now noticed that my natural hair colour is really quite dark and my eyebrows are darker than a few years ago. I would like to match my natural chocolate brown hair colour and be a brunette, which I have tried before and like a lot. What is the best way of changing from very light blonde to a rich dark in a salon? I do not mind paying but I would need a quick result as I am leaving to travel again in a few months?

I think the best thing for you Sophie is to visit a salon and have a consultation and a strand test first of all. Then the hairdresser will be able to give you a good idea what can be achieved. If you are sure you want to go ahead then it is a case of applying a permanent colour to your hair to balance your colour and give you a result very close to your natural colour. It is difficult to achieve exactly the same colour as your natural colour but we can certainly get it very close. You will also need to take some professional products with you to care for your hair as it will tend to fade due to the porosity of your hair and especially if you are travelling to hotter climates & swimming. It is also possible that you could purchase a product from your salon called Colourfresh which is a conditioning semi permanent colour that you can apply to keep your colour looking fresh.

|Helen asks: |
I have a long flat face - my cheeks bones do not stick out at all and my eyes are quite big. I have had a fringe nearly ALL my life and I am nervous about getting rid of it - it seems to be a big phobia of mine as I do not know what kind of hair cut would suit me at all. I have been to hairdressers and asked them to just do what they think would suit my face shape etc but I seem to come out worse. I really would LOVE to get rid of my fringe as I could do with a change – I am 30 and its been there for way too long. I have a high forehead and I have no self esteem to just clip my fringe back. My hair length at them moment is just below my shoulders with layers at the ends.

Unfortunately Helen, the only way to grow out your fringe is to persevere. There are ways you can soften it or try changing your parting and working your fringe into the layers at the sides. The other possibility is to have a few extensions through the front of your hair and work them into your hair to give the illusion that you have no fringe or you could have them as a kind of veil look. Go for it, what have you got to loose?

|Sarah - Louise asks: |
My hair is very long, down to the bottom of my back. It is very thick and 18 months ago, I dyed it black and red. I have about 4 inches of roots showing. My natural hair colour is medium brown. I want to dye my hair a dark blonde/gold colour and was wondering if this is possible with my hair coloured already. After 18 months my hair is now a maroon colour with patches of faded black but my natural hair colour on the whole of the underneath. I have been told by one hairdresser that I can dye my hair dark blonde, but it needs to be stripped a few times first. A different
hairdresser on the other hand, told me I cannot dye it any other colour but black. Could you please give me the correct information on whether or not I can dye my hair the colour I want.

It is a rather difficult job, so you will found some hairdressers not wanting to do it. I would be able to do the job probably in the same manner as hairdresser number 1, doing some module or even perhaps a shampoo bleach but you have to think about the condition of your hair after the process, I would however very strongly advised you to have a strand test prior to having it done.
