Lamia asks:
My natural hair colour is light brown and I dyed it dark brown, it as faded, I wanted a honey colour, like beige honey but it came out orangey. Now itís washed out and itís something like golden blonde or very light ginger. I donít like it at all and I was wondering how I can dye my hair to get a sort of dark blonde or the lightest brown, but without bleaching if possible. So can I just dye over this faded hair colour and which hair colour would you recommend?

It sounds like youíve done a lot of colouring which is never recommended unless youíre doing it in a controlled manner i.e. with a professional colour technician. Semi permanents will always be friendlier to your hair but itís very difficult to assess your hair without seeing it. You will have a build up of colour on your hair, and the condition will not be great so you need an expert to sort your colour but I think you should use some highlights to lighten the colour and break-up the tone would be best. You need to go to your local salon and get a consultation, a consultation costs nothing and what you will get could be invaluable. We have salons in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Leeds that will be able to look after you.

Georgia asks:
I want to cut my hair short, please can you give me a short, flirty, fashionable hairstyle. I have a heart shaped face. A fringe would be good do you think?

I think itís great when people become more acceptable to change, Take a look on the Style Gallery on the site, there are some fantastic styles on there and you can always print a few off and take them along to the Salon.

Sue asks:
I was looking for a clarifying shampoo to rid my hair of a product I did not like, a hairdresser recommended baking soda and water as a rinse instead. I used it lightly once. Then followed up a second time alternating shampoo followed by a rinse and a small amount of baking soda (focused on a couple specific areas) again followed by a rinse. To my horror, my natural hair colour appears to have picked up orange tones, and my once foiled highlights lost their brightness and blond and have since blended into my now lightened hair colour. Do I assume I have permanently messed up my natural colour? Is baking soda known to have that reaction even when not left in the hair for any significant amount of time? I was told it would not strip my hair colour, and I certainly didnít expect it to lighten my natural colour. Will the orange effect fade, or is this a permanent change? Is there something simple to tone down orange/brassiness?

To be honest itís the first time I have ever heard the advice to use baking soda mixed with water to remove unwanted product so I cannot explain the reaction you have had. Having said this I am sure there is something that can be done to rectify this. I would strongly recommend that you book a free colour consultation with a Wella Master Colour Expert who will be able to advice on the best course of action to get your hair colour back to your desired colour.
