Nicolle asks:
My hair is a long bob with a thick blunt fringe and I usually wear it straight, I am bored with it at the moment but am trying to grow it long. I have got lots of work events over the next month that are really glam - would you be able to give me a couple of tips or ideas of ways that I can dress my hair up. I will be wearing cocktail dresses, am in my early 30ís and need to dress to impress but still look professional for my clients.

There are so many thing you could do with your hair, the list is endless.

Itís so easy to fall into a comfortable habit with your hair, so depending on where your parting would usually be, why donít you consider moving the line to a new position? Hold your new parting in place by blow drying heat protection and mousse into your damp hair. Now your hair is prepped, ready to create beautiful soft waves. Leave your fringe as it is and tong your hair by taking small vertical sections at a time, this angle will allow the hair to drop softly around the face instead of creating a deep wave, twisting the hair as you work your way around the tong will loosen the wave even further. Work in neat section, all in the same direction from the front to back of the head on both sides, this will create a beautiful soft wave that would grace any red carpet. The mousse in the hair will give you that extra hold to last for the whole day. ...More >

You now have two options depending on how creative you are feeling. Either brush your hair through with a vent brush adding a drop of serum for that additional shine and control, you want your hair to shimmer and enhance the waves. What you will have is a beautiful coiffured classic meets modern 30s inspires wave that will turn heads.

For a different look, back comb the whole head starting from your parting, working you way backwards. Gently brush hair out and tease into a messy beehive, donít go too high, keep the look elegant and young. Pin up at the back and soften the look by leaving fine strands floating in the air. Another look that will seem effortless and will stay all day with a good passing of hair spray.

Two looks that will carry you through your day from the office to your business events.





Laura asks:
When I go on a (Princess) cruise, my hair becomes extra greasy, extra fast. I wash it daily as always with my usual shampoo and conditioner. My hair is coloured and naturally straight. How can I prevent this weighed-down greasy look on my next cruise in a month?

I think the reason for this will be that water on the ship which is probably too soft which can cause hair to become greasy. I would suggest investing in a specific shampoo for hair that can go greasy and try to only wash your hair in luke warm to cold water if possible as hot water will make your scalp produce more natural oils that cause the greasy look.







Adrianne asks:
I have very thick, curly hair that is frizzy and dry. You name it I have had it done in my battle to fight the frizz, chemical straightening, perming, Kerastraight etc - I have had it long and short, highlighted and my natural colour. I usually control the curls with a High Street mousse and it normally takes me an hour to wash mousse and part dry. I am now 42 and the grey hairs are appearing, I am also FED up with the hassle of styling, the itchy feeling mousse gives me and the time it takes - I donít want to be doing this in my 50s! I am thinking of going back to short, with highlights and finding one of the hundreds of products out there that would be more suitable than mousse. Please can you suggest a style and product and should I have another Kera-Straight when I have it short - HELP!

Well it certainly sounds like you have tried some products over the years! I agree with you and probably for the easiest low maintenance I would go with a shorter more manageable style. If Iím honest I would have recommended a Keratin treatment but as an alternative you could try the new Wella System Professional Lux Oil and see if that works for you. Take a look on the Style Gallery there are lots of Styles to choose from and you can always print some off and take them along to the Salon.
