Audrey asks:
I was wondering if it would be possible to go from a dark brown shade to a honey blonde/brown hair colour. My hairdresser says I canít go that light, but Iíve seen many celebrities pull it off without the brassy look and they arenít natural blondes. Iíd love to get any advice from you

This colour should be easy to achieve by a talented colourist. The important thing you need to watch out is that the hair colourist you choose is committed and experienced in this type of work and uses the best colours available on the market such as LíOreal, Goldwell, Wella or Schwarzkopf. These companies have many choices of colours to choose from. It is essential that you use good home care products after your High and Low light have been applied, to keep the colours looking fresh and healthy. I must add, Celebrities do spend small fortunes on Hair and colours, to be the owner of such beautiful hair you need to consider spending top money. Have you considered becoming a salon Model at a top salon? The charges are less and the work should be good, for example most top salons have training evenings, find out by calling salon and find out if they need models for colouring practice, tell them what you want, negotiate the colour you want to end up with, you maybe just lucky to get the whole work for little money, maybe you need to compromise a little but it should be worth it. I do hope this helps and have fun with your new colour.

Susie asks:
I have incredibly thick straight grey hair that no stylist seems to have a solution for .Over the years I have had it layered, textured etc as there instinct is always to remove the "bulk" but all this does is make it stick out further .Its much better when I let its own weight pull it down but because of having to have the roots permanently coloured every three weeks I end up with banding and the sheer volume makes colouring such a chore for them. As I approach my fifties Iím becoming increasingly desperate to find a style that will work for me .Iím very tall, well built with very wide shoulders and with an oval face .My hair looks best when up or swept away from my face at least on one side. By using products I can keep it fairly shiny and sleek but what is the right thing to advise my stylist because it seems every "chip in" just creates frizzy hair that sticks out even more and itís so strong that no style lasts for long without a ton of product. It goes its own way hours after every salon visit!

I would strongly recommend that you look into having the Keratin Complex treatment done. What this does is add keratin back into the hair which helps people like yourself with very thick coarse hair be able to manage the style better. It is important to point out that it is NOT a chemical straightening process, but it will help reduce blow drying time and difficulties dramatically.

Damien asks:
I use a permanent color to cover my grey at a salon. A few months ago I went to a new colorist. I noticed that two days after colouring my roots were grey! I switched colourists and now am on my third one. This is still happening. Each colourist says that this is "regrowth". Regrowth after one day? How can this be? Is there something lacking or not strong enough in the dye they are using? I would be so grateful for your opinion on this matter. It is driving me crazy! Thank you so much.

If you are using permanent hair colour there should be no reason why you are not getting the results and great grey coverage. I will advise you that it is harder to colour grey hair when it is course or lighter shades of blonde are desired, but other than that you should not have grey hair after one day. So letís try to figure out what could possibly be going on. Some facts: The average head of hair grows 1/2 inch per month, so yes if you are an high percentage of grey and are doing a really dark colour, in two weeks you will have a 1/4 -inch regrowth that will be visible. I am not sure if this is the case for you or if in fact you are just not getting good coverage to begin with. You said that your experience in the past was good, was that along time ago could your hair be a lot more grey now, have you changed the level of colour or shade that you used in the past, are you recently on medication or had surgery as all these things can effect colour. I hope this helps you work through this situation I wished I could help you more but it is difficult unless I can analyze the hair and do my own visible tests.
