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.

Nikki asks:
I have what people call dirty blonde hair, I dyed it with a peroxide hair dye and now it has yellow and orange tinges running through it. Someone told me I have to put a red based dye on my hair to cover the peroxide, but wont this make it go pink?

Do not do it! To be honest whenever a home hair colour goes wrong there is no one other than a professional colourist that you should listen too! Do not take your friends advice, instead visit a reputable salon and ask for a consultation. It is really not something you should be attempting to rectify yourself. Trust me, in the long run you will save money and bad hair!

The key to getting good sound advice is going to a good salon that know what they are talking about and will tell you if they think you are making the right decision with your hair. It is always a good idea to go for a consultation before choosing what style you would like, you might have to pay for this but they will give good advice and all reputable hairdressers will offer this service. Another idea is to try and find a picture of a style you like. Take this with you, it is often much easier to show a picture than explain what you want, again if the stylist does not think it would suit, they should offer a similar alternative and go through this with you.
