Dax asks:
I have curly non-African thin hair (ringlets). I am trying to find a way to wear it semi straight. I try to stretch out the curls when I dry my hair but it still ends up being just as curly. Then I semi-straighten it with a straight iron, however, it ends up being extremely frizzy. When I try to put in product to control the frizz, the dampness causes my hair to curl again into ringlets. Any suggestions on how to control the frizz without making my hair curl too much?

Hi Dax.

This can be quite a problem without knowing the knack for it. ...More >

As soon as you add any moisture after styling ( even when semi straightening as you say) the moisture will bring your natural curls straight back.

I would try a very light hold gel mixed with a small amount of serum and apply this to your hair while damp.

Then you have two options.

Keep running your hands through your hair until almost dry. This will reduce the natural curl without heat ( just the heat from your hands) as your hair is fine.

Or

Use a hairdryer on a very low heat and airflow setting and again using your hands work them through your style.

One fantastic product that people with naturally curly or wavy hair are raving about is My white magic 3 in 1 foam.

A shampoo, conditioner and styling product in one.

Apply this all over your hair, every other day and still use the same process described above with your hands with or without heat.

The moisture and protein as well as the styling product will hold your hair in a soft relaxed shape without making it frizzy.

It provides the instant day after beach look waves or definition to any curly wavy hair. Without frizz.

Good luck Dax.

Let me know how you get on





Nicolle asks:
Would both of my daughters (one 11 and one 12) look good with a pixie cut? One has brown hair, and the other blonde. They want their hair like Miley Cyrus! Generally, like a pixie cut but one of them wants their bangs swooped over to the side and the other one wants short hair on the sides and her bangs on the shorter side but still being able to pin them up! Thank you so much!!

Look forward to putting your response on the site,

Many thanks

The pixie cut is very popular with tweeners so the answer is yes!!

This age is an ideal time to experiment on styles to get used to finding out what suits their face shape and personality etc. It also helps avoid making a drastic hair style change when older (we all know how that can go!) and its fun ...More >

In Reference to Miley Cyrus ... her particular style is VERY short on her temples and nape so I would suggest some thing a bit longer, still shaped over ears and nape , but not necessarily buzz cut(as hers is ) You didnít say if your girls hair was straight, curly , thick , fine ? all of the mentioned can have a pixie cut tailored to hair type . Re the long Side fringe(bangs) the fringe should be a graduated cut chipped into. A good guide for length is for the start to be on eyebrow and the end just long enough to hook over ear ..

The shorter fringe should be layered and although still asymmetric not so steep.. I suggest you look on the hairstyle finder tab on this site ..there are lots of variations and you can have a bit of this, and a bit of that, makes it more individual for your girls.

They can play around with products too and clips sleeking it back, funking it up and pinning the sides to mention a few options .

Hope they love their new haircuts ....

Milan asks:
Hello my name is Milan and I need personal professional help. Iím from the Caribbean and Iím always compared to a model. Everyone says I have the face& body! In the link youíll see some pictures of my face & body. I have strong cheekbones in person & Iím very skinny. So I need your help with the perfect color & hair length to match my face and body. I was thinking something dark (want a natural look) with maybe some blonde highlights. But your the expert here! If you have a picture of the hairstyle with the details that would be great! Thanks!

Myself and Karine Jackson both agree that the image attached should be your inspiration. Itís a cool new technique weíre working on in the salon called Melange (a newer version of ombre) which blends shades together for a smudged and on-trend effect. We think the cut would look amazing on you and would really showcase your cheekbones and the styling would definitely make you stand out.
