Akshu asks:
I am 21 years old.I have a medium length ,wavy and almost thin hair. I just put a pony tail or plait my hair rarely. I am having this hair style from past 10 years. I am scared to go in for layer cut because I feel that they may make my hair look even thinner.But I am bored of my hair style.Kindly suggest me something different so that I donít lose my hair density and length .

When thinking about layers, they tend to give more volume at the root, as the hair is cut shorter and lighter - this then makes the ends thinner so wouldnít be the best option for you if your hair is quite thin.
The best way to create thicker looking hair is to have the ends cut quite bluntly, with the back slightly shorter than the front to make the hair fall forwards and create the illusion of thicker and longer hair.
Graduation builds weight which will in turn make your hair look thicker.
At the moment, blunt cut long bobs are really popular, especially those that are all one length - taking into consideration your face shape and the way your hair falls, this could be a great option for you.

Paulina asks:
My hair is naturally curly but I always style it straight. I am going camping and wonít be able to take my straightener with me. Do you have any advice on how I can get it straight without using a hair straightener?

Before your trip, I suggest washing your hair with Redken Frizz Dismiss Shampoo and Conditioner for humidity protection and smoothing. I would then give it a good blow-dry and straighten. While you are away, use Redken Pillow Proof Two Day Extender Dry Shampoo. If you do need to wash your hair while you are away, then set your hair with large foam rollers. This method wonít result in super-straight hair, but the large rollers will get rid of small, frizzy curls and create gentle waves instead.

E Jones asks:
I have naturally blonde red hair which is unusually fine and not very thick. It is poker straight and sits flat even after blow drying with volume boosters and using straighteners at the roots to provide lift - also wind moisture etc totally flattens it out again. I use to have a great hair stylist who managed to cut a shape into my hair which meant it didnít flatten within two hours (it lasted all day even in poor weather) and still held its shape when I went for my next eight week cut - however this stylist left the salon and they wonít tell me where she went! I have tried to explain to at least six different stylists at various country wide salons who charge a lot for a cut (which I am happy to pay if I get a good cut) that my hair needs shape cutting in - what term should I use. My old stylist use to "thin" my hair which gave more ummph - when I tell them this they use those texurising scissors on the layer ends which just makes it flyaway and this doesnít give any lift or volume. Also after two weeks itís sitting flat to my head again! Could you please tell me what technique I should be asking for - as the "senior" stylists I have come across appear to have a total lack of understanding/knowledge on how to cut my type of hair - I canít believe Iím the only one! My hair use to be jaw length and cut up into the back to provide bulk and we would alter the longish fringe to the side depending on the mood and or define layers around the face - as styles changed. I am getting really desperate as I am a 43 yr old who can not afford to look like a drowned rat or disaffected teenager! Please help!!

I wish I could tell you that this was the first time I have heard this, but it could not be further from the truth.

Under no circumstances let a stylist attack your hair with texturising/thinning shears, it will make your hair FLAT and FRIZZY. ...More >

You will definitely get the best results with a soft razoring technique "internal diffusion" which gives you soft supporting volume to prolong the volume and lift you need.

In all my years this is the only technique that truly works.

Please ensure you use a very experienced stylist competent in this technique, as in the wrong hands it will result in your hair been thinner and flatter.

Good luck
