Sarah asks:
How do I know if my face will look good with bangs? I desperately need something new, and was thinking of the whole fringe/bang thing?

Take a picture of yourself and try using the Virtual Hairstyle gallery on the site or Book a consultation with a good local stylist they should be able to show you pictures from a magazine similar face shape with the fringe.

Lisa asks:
My hair has broken off by using my straighteners to much and I do not want to cut it off. Do you think I should have hair extensions to level this back up?

Hair extensions might resolve your problems temporarily, but what you need to concentrate on is how you maintain the condition of your hair. I would recommend getting the split ends cut off, using the hair extensions to give you the length, volume and new style until your hair grows back to the length you are happiest with.

Use a leave in conditioner every day and make sure that if you are using the flat hot irons to straighten your hair that you use a heat protector. Most of the well known brands now supply a pre-straightener protector and conditioner. If you do not use this before you straighten your hair, you will only continue to damage your hair even if you have extensions in.

Erika asks:
I have used Henna about a month ago in the hope to give some Volume to my fine and straight hair. Now I would like to have a perm done, but I heard that after Henna treatment a perm will not work. How long do I have to wait before having a perm done. The hairdresser I asked did not know the answer.

Some henna contain metallic salts and react badly to many other chemicals when they come in contact with it, causing hair breakage and green khaki tones in the hair, sometimes causing the hair to burn the scalp and disintegrate, or go really frizzy. Your hairdresser needs to take a cutting of your hair and test it to see if it is incompatible with the perm solution. If it is then you will have to grow out the henna completely before you can have a perm. As it would be extremely unprofessional to even think about perming your own hair. If however the henna you have used does not contain metallic salts and is not incompatible then, another strand test should be taken to make sure that the hair will form into a curl formation, as some hennas create a barrier to the chemical change of the hair, and you would sit there for hours have rollers put in and come out with straight hair! So its all about having your hair tested and then takes it from there. Its probably going to be a No you can not have a perm and stop putting henna on your hair at home, as it prevents you being able to change your look.
