Alicia asks:
I currently have long hair but Iím considering having a long bob. Please can you tell me if this takes a lot of styling? I have a little baby so havenít got time for too much styling!

If you opt for a long bob, make sure itís past collar bone length, anything shorter would be more difficult to tie up, so could prove more time consuming. Depending on what hair type you have, itís nice to leave the hair a bit more messy and undone these days and long bobs are great for that.†

Eden asks:
Dear Hair Gurus,
I am lucky enough to be a man nearly 50 with the hair of a thirty year old woman.
Because of this I have enjoyed long hair for most of my life and still have long hair now which can be seen at the casting call pro website under my name, as I am and have always been an occasional actor. I now want very much to have shorter hair but when through misfortune I had to have my hair shaved at the back 2 years ago for much of the regrowth I looked like an old bloke with a boy band haircut - not many good hair days there! My hair is not grey, a few strands but not salt and pepper but my beard is and I have deduced through research if you are my age (or ten years younger) and you have long hair you have to pair it with facial hair? I realise my question is wholly selfish and I thank the genes of hair every day but I really could use some help and I end up feeling self conscious trying to have this conversation in a salon because its really important to me, itís a big change, I have tried twice before and failed. So if you have a moment and you care please advise, I have good leeway (hair really needs a cut) I would love to take salon advice (I live in London) and would be eternally grateful.

Thank-you for your time.

Hi Eden thank you for your email, you are very blessed to have such great hair.

I understand your dilemma especially after the shaved hair style, my suggestion is to take a selection of images along to a salon and have a free consultation in advance of booking the actual haircut. I have added a few options as an in between hairstyle as I think itís important to consider the different aspects of the daily styling routine etc. ...More >

I would suggest initially asking for a few inches off the length and long layers all the way through and as you build a relationship with a stylist you will grow in confidence that they understand and care about your hair and needs before cutting it.

Even though I am a hairdresser myself itís taken me a long time to not feel self-conscious about wanting the best from my hair and feel confident about having a change itís a common issue. I have a number of friends as well as my Son that are hairdressers in London, if it would be helpful you could pop and chat to one of them under my recommendation?

Good luck, take the plunge but in stages.


Daisy asks:
I have waist length, naturally dark brown hair and last week I went to a salon to get it coloured for the first time. I wanted the Balayage style with a slightly lighter brown. After the treatment, I couldnít see any difference in the salon but now Iím home I see a very rusty/brassy uneven colour on my hair. Itís blotchy in places with red tones and my hair feels very damaged and dry. I had no split ends before this but now I have a lot of split ends and in general my hair is dried out and frizzy, even after conditioning treatments. Iím not sure what to do now. I donít want to use a colour stripper, because itís often damaging and I canít afford to go back to a salon (they charged me about 200 pounds for this awful cut and colour).

If your hair has been ruined by a colourist, the best thing to do is complain at the time and refuse to pay full price. Explain why itís not what you wanted and how itís different to what you asked for. Most salons will simply refund you or offer to correct the damage, as they wonít want to damage their reputation. I recommend that you go back to the salon and explain why you are unhappy. Ask for a full consultation before you proceed with the colour correction.
