Kiera asks:
Hi guys, Iím thinking about dying my hair red in the near future and was just wondering if I should bleach my hair first as it is almost black ( naturally ) I know it says on the boxes of home dye kits that they are not suitable for bleached or natural blonde hair. I have tried dying my hair red in the past without bleaching first using home kits and the red didnít even touch my hair.

Its is important to bleach or pre lighten the hair to the correct undertone in order for the red you choose to be vibrant and long lasting. This usually means lifting the hair to a red/ orange colour before shampooing to remove, blowdrying then applying the desired red.

Itís a pretty tricky process to do evenly and so I would always recommended you ask a stylist for details if cost is an issue then ask if there is a trainee stylist available that needs to practice. Good after care is also essential to keep the red vibrant and long lasting!!!

Clare asks:
I have very long, thick and wavy/curly hair depending on the day really. I donít blow dry or dye it and I use the occasional hair mask, it has always been very healthy.

About 7 months ago, almost over night it became very rough and impossible to pull apart resulting in these clumps of frizzy knots, it almost feels like velcro. Iíve tried everything from using products with no protein to home remedies like apple cider vinegar but it hasnít helped. Iím worried I will have to cut it all off as itís very unmanageable. Iíd appreciate any advice, thank you!

Hi Clare

This is interesting but obviously a worry to you. ...More >

Have you changed anything in you styling or shampoo conditioning routine.

For it to change almost overnight it is something to do with what you are or are not using.

This sometimes happens with a change in the water (ph or hard water) you have not moved house?

A few quick tips.

Shampoo your hair like normal but before you rinse it out take your hands into the roots at your scalp.
Close your fingers together and smooth down from roots to ends while shampoo is on hair.

Do the same with your conditioner or treatment.

If need be after rinsing and before styling apply a small amount of serum or oil and again smooth through and style as normal.

This isnít a hair problem it is a styling regime product or water change.

It can also help( donít laugh using silk pillows that wonít create static or a silk loose fitting hat or beeni)

I know sounds daft but loads of my friends with fros do exactly this)

Hi there.

You didnít say if his hair was fine or thick or medium long , very long, so depending in that I have put a collage together for you with some options.
I have numbered the cuts so that you can tell the stylist what you want and have explained the terms used to help. ...More >

1&5 This is a very long surfer dude the layers are graduatedl ayers and it has no fringe , the base line sits on the shoulders and the stylist uses this as a guide the layers should fall as in the photo 5, so if this is the one then Thaiís what you ask for.

2, 3, 4, 6 The base line is just sitting on the collar and length at the ears is the bottom of the lobe. The layers are then cut within that perimeter.
The fringe should be cut below or above (depending on your preference) the eyebrow and then snipped into and cut slightly shorter on one side (at a slant) to give the illusion of a side parting if you are having a straight across fringe ask for it to be feathered.
is a close up of the fringe for number 2 on blonde hair (didnít know your sons colour)

is same as above but on thick hair

is very fine hair SAME STYLE
