Kayla asks:
I am 15 and I have, I guess what you would say maybe a punky style. I just recently got my hair cut short. Maybe a little shorter than shoulder length with layers, the style I am trying to achieve is, maybe kind-of 80s. I want it to be BIG. I have tried different hairsprays and hair waxes. I have thick and heavy hair and I think a lot of products make my hair even heavier. So if you have any suggestions to what I can do to achieve the style I want it would be greatly appreciated.

If you want BIG hair, waxes are too heavy for the length of your hair, waxes are designed for shorter hair and are great for creating a bit of texture in longer hair but not for boosting body, if anything they will make your hair flat! Try using a volumising range of products such as the Healthy Hair Fine Fragile and Stressed Range (available from Boots) The range contains a shampoo, conditioner, volumising mousse and volumising spray specifically designed for hair that needs a volume boost! Also when blow-drying your hair use a barrel brush as this will help to create volume! The bigger the better!





Shannon asks:
I have long, wavy and thick red hair, that also tends to have a coarser texture than most people I know! It is almost impossible to find a haircut that looks good (I do not want to go short, I just want something thats more stylish THAT WILL ACTUALLY WORK!

If your hair is coarse make sure you use a deep conditioning treatment every week to ensure your hair is as soft and smooth as possible. If your hair is thick and wavy I would advise you keep it longer anyway as it will be much more manageable and suited to your hair type. If your hair is all one length I would advise having some soft layers put in, this will create depth and although the length is still there it will be far more stylish and interesting. Also experiment with different products as with curly hair there are so many things you can do with the right product! Try using a salt spray such as JLife Surf Girl Spritz over the summer months. This will give your hair a beach babe no hassle look and create a new hairstyle all together! I would go for a consultation at a reputable salon and they should be able to advise you on what you should and should not do, however my advice would be keep it simple with a few layers and experiment with products!







Sara asks:
I have medium to long hair and it is very curl when I blow dry it straight it gets all puffy I even use an iron but still it does not work.

Try using a straightening shampoo and conditioner such as J Life Dead Calm this tames and calms frizzy/curly uncontrollable hair. Before blow-drying use a smoothing mousse to control hair such as JLife In Control Mousse, this is rich in moisture so smoothes and conditions hair to make it more manageable. Then blow dry hair in sections starting with the underneath. Use a large paddle brush to ensure a smooth and straight finish. To finish use a serum through the ends of the hair for a sleek, everyday glamorous look, and to make things really easy
