Daniel asks:
I am male, 28 years old and I have ginger hair. I have been thinking of changing it for a while now but was always a bit worried that my friends would make stupid comments about the colour change. Is there some kind of shampoo that I could use that would change the colour gradually over time? And if so what colour is the easiest to change to. I just want to take away the redness from my hair....Thanks you for any help

To be honest there isnít a shampoo that will change your colour over a period of time.

What I would strongly advise is booking a free consultation with a colour technician at a Wella salon that has a Master Colour Expert. These people are highly qualified in all aspects of colour and will be able to point you in the right direction for you.





Anonymous asks:
I have had lice and nits and Now the lice have gone but there maybe a few (not a lot since I have got a lot out) nits left and I have a hair appointment soon. Will the stylist notice them or mistake them for dandruff? And I study NVQ hairdressing but which is better BTEC or NVQ? And what qualifications do you need to open a hairdressing salon and how many courses do you have to take and how many years?

Where do I start?

The salon will NOT probably do you hair if you have any live creatures around. I would mention this so they can do a consultation on you first, so you are upfront (this stops any uncomfortable situation for both you and the salon). ...More >

Regarding your hairdressing education. Either of the two qualifications you mentioned are fine. BUT. The whole emphasis is on you. As a hairdresser and a professional we only get out of this profession what we put in. LOTS OF HARD work passion and enthusiasm.

My advice to ANYONE wanting to build a career in our fantastic industry is:

Find a placement either while at college studying or as an apprentice at the best salon you can find in your locality.

The best salon does not mean the biggest. I mean the one that has the best reputation and the most respected stylist or owner. What you learn from these people AFTER leaving college in invaluable.

I would work in a Professional Salon for at least 3-5 years building up clients and your skill base. No only in hairdressing skills but: personal skills, client communication, consultation, professionalism, image, confidence and of course business skills that you will learn, sales, sales techniques, promotions all these things provide knowledge and understanding that is essential when you GO IT ALONE.

This may seem like a long haul, yet as I said at the beginning. IF YOU PUT THE HARD WORK PASSION AND ENTHUSIASM in from the start the fantastic opportunities that this industry have to offer open themselves up to you.

Good Luck. and a great question







Karen asks:
I am in my late thirties and would love to have long hair. I have a long thin face, and my hair is very fine and flyaway. I have a smallish forehead, but have a long nose. I always have my hair layered and cut just below my jaw line. Is there a style that I could have that is suitable for my face shape and age that, gives volume, but is longer? I would love to have flowing locks, but it tends to just hang and cling to my face as it grows, making my face look long and tired. Any suggestions would be most welcome. My hair has a slight wave in it.

Longer hair does not usually work well with a long face shape as it tends to make the face shape longer. Again with your hair being fine the longer and heavier it gets the more it will cling to your face. ...More >

My advice would be to keep it slightly shorter in length and keep the layers so that you can achieve volume and body.

If you do want to try it longer then definitely keep some layers in but perhaps consider trying a very light body perm to give you body and width.
