Terry asks:
About six weeks ago, I straightened my hair. Ever since then I have had a really itchy scalp with hair loss. Iíve used Head and Shoulder shampoo the good one and it is still very itchy and still losing lots of hair when I wash it. What can I do to make this stop????

Hi Terry - for the itchy scalp I would not use Head & Shoulders, I would lean more towards Paul Mitchellís Tea Tree Shampoo and also between shampoos treat your scalp with their Tea Tree Oil. I donít think your hair is falling out, I think itís breaking off at the root causing it to feel like it is.

Jo asks:
I have very short fine hair what could I do to make it look different for my big day?

Congrats on your big day! Maybe doing something great with the colour is the way to go. You can make your hair look more luxurious by being bold with a block colour. Talk to your stylist and make sure you come armed with some ideas from magazines on shades you like.

Good luck!

Alexandra asks:
I have very fine, naturally blonde long hair, which is thin especially on top. Iíve had this style for most of my life and would love to have an elfin short hairstyle. I have good bone structure but Iím not sure that my hair is thick enough on top to have it real short. I also want a small fringe but not sure what style of fringe, as I havenít had a fringe for about 20 years and worried that it may annoy me as my hair is so fine. Is a short hairstyle the best style for me?

An elfin crop would be a drastic change from your long style, so it is best to be certain itís the right cut for you before you go ahead with it.

You can get an idea of what your new haircut would look like by tying your hair back into a tight pony-tail and standing sideways to a mirror. Hold a smaller compact mirror in front of you and adjust so you can see your side profile. This will give you a clear view of what size and shape your head is. ...More >

Remember, a hairdresser can tell you a haircut will look great, but youíre the one who will have to live with it, so use your own judgement to decide whether you would suit this particular style.

The elfin crop looks better on those with fine hair and good bone structure - so you sound like the perfect candidate. Thick hair is just too unruly and can stand up in tufts when short.

If you have a high forehead, I would suggest you get a long, sexy fringe cut in as this will provide a bit of camouflage and balance out your face. This is also my favourite take on the crop! If youíre feeling really brave go for an asymmetric cut and make yourself stand out.

The best way to style a crop is to wash your hair with my Poker Straight Shampoo and Conditioner, followed by Poker Straight Glistening Balm when it is still damp. Blow dry using a paddle brush, then spritz on some Poker Straight Flat Iron Protection Mist before straightening to protect your barnet.

Straighten the ends of the hair, then mess it all up with As Ruff as You Like, working vigorously through the whole of your hair. Tip: Donít use a mirror to do this - you want your hair to be a bit messy looking. Only look in the mirror to tweak a few strays into place.

This is a fun haircut, so have fun styling it!
