Ducard asks:
PLZ HELP! Hello, not sure how this works exactly but Iím quite desperate for answers so here we go.
Iím a 21 year old male and I have blonde...straight to wavy hair falling down past my shoulders that happens to be pretty fine... fine as in thin not balding or anything but thin hair. Although thin I have been told that I have a "dense" head of hair as in thin hairs but a lot of them.... now on to the question I always had short hair growing up but a year or two ago I began growing my hair out because I wanted a ponytail. The ponytail style that I seek is Val Kilmer in the 1995 movie Heat.... Please search it for reference. While it looks kinda simple I find it extremely hard to prepare. I get the front all even and situated but when I pull it back into the tail it falls flat and loses all the height and symmetry that it had before I pulled it back. So my question is how do I accomplish this ponytail? What products do you recommend and maybe some advice on the preparation such as blow drying etc. and I do know you donít know exactly what I look like but even if you can answer for me personally what do you think the actor did to accomplish the style? A reply would be very appreciated!!!! Thank you

Hello Ducard
I looked up Val as per your request; so firstly you need to use a shampoo for fine hair. A protein based one or one that says it is specially for fine limp hair, this is the best place to start. Then a trim with a few long layers in your hair as it will allow it to have more movement. I would suggest you rough dry your hair with a hairdryer and direct the nozzle into the root area of your hair also to help create volume. I then suggest using dry shampoo, spray it into the root area of your clean dry hair. The clay base of the product means it acts a bit like starch and gives lift and texture. To create the ponytail, pull all the hair back with your hands, secure with a band then give you head a good shake so the shorter layers fall out of the band. Really good luck

Mel asks:
I have had long blonde hair all my life, but now Iím in my 40ís and recently got married Iím desperate for a change!
The shortest I have ever had it is just below shoulder length. My hair is naturally wavy/curly, and I am plus size.
I would love to cut my hair short, or into some sort of bob - maybe something graduated. but have no idea what would suit me being big.

Mel, I think you will totally nail a graduated bob and perhaps some extra lightening in the face framing area, go for it and good luck.

Simona asks:
I am considering getting a perm. Not the 80s one, rather something softer with big waves (soft Hollywood curls in my mind) which would add more volume and dimension into my hair.
So, my questions are - with my hair quite long, would it hold the big waves? Is it even possible to get big rods? What is the largest size? Would it still last 6 months or less? Is it worth it?
Thank you

Hi Simona
The perm on large rollers will add some body and volume to your hair, but you will still need to dry and style your hair.
To achieve a Hollywood glamour look itís best to use rollers but having a perm will mean the style will hold and last longer. It should last longer than 6 months in the middle lengths and ends.
