Clare asks:
I am getting married in July and cannot afford to get my hair professionally done. I have shoulder length hair in brown with red tint when the sun hits it. I tend to go for very plain things so usually have hair tied up in a pony tail or in a plait. I want to experiment as it will be a very special day. Do you have any suggestions? I have Straightening tongs and crimping tongs but that is about it!

Its a shame that you cannot have your hair professionally styled - its such an important day! But, if you do decide to go it alone, then keep it simple and most importantly, you! Its no good changing your hair drastically as you will feel uncomfortable. I would definitely leave the crimpers alone - its not a good look! Why not experiment with some gorgeous hair accessories (Claires Accessories do amazing, inexpensive ones) and then you can wear your hair in a ponytail but glam it up with some gorgeous feathers or flowers. Experiment with a high and low ponytail and see which flatters your dress more.

I am going to a wedding and I am wearing a bodice style dress. I want an up style that wont make me look to bare, or thats not really scraped back off me face any ideas?

Go half and half! Leaving some length down your shoulders will give you a bit of security but taking it away from the sides will show off your facial features. We agree, nothing to severe but a more soft sweeping of the face do not go for the tendril look that can easily turn it a chav look! Jennifer Lopez wears some gorgeous hairstyles and is a great inspiration for stylish hair ups, check out some of the celebrity magazines and take those to your hairdresser for some inspiration too.

Sophie asks:
I have shoulder length hair which is quite thick with a bit of a wave (well, looks curly when its wet, but just sticks out a bit when its dry). What do I do to get my hair to be curly when its dry?

This season shows a new type of curl to reflect the Sienna Miller longer curl. Roots are smooth and groomed and the curl is not coming from root. For natural curly hair the best thing to do is apply a mousse, such as my Richard Ward Fast & Loose conditioning mousse, to towel dried hair. Dry roots smooth using a professional hairdryer (such as Parlux 3000w) then using the diffuser attachment scrunch the length until almost dry. Obviously the length of the hair will now be curled, so set 60% of hair on heated rollers - the bigger the rollers the looser the final curl. This will tame the hair whilst adding definition to the style - an application of a smoothing shine serum such as my Richard Ward Shine On (3.99) finishes the look.
