Charliie asks:
I have really natural blonde hair and I want to use a spray or dye to semi dye it brown. I once had this spray which washed out in the rain and I canít remember what it was. I wondered if you had any products which I could use to dye it semi and would it wash out.

Dying your hair in general is an important decision. So my first piece of advice to anyone planning on changing their hair colour dramatically (to whatever colour) is to think it through- why not ask the advice of your hair stylist first or go online to check out different shades on celebrities with similar skin tones and features to yourself ...More >

Blonde to brunette sounds a more drastic transition than it actually is just check out Reese Witherspoon, Ashlee Simpson and Britney, who have all taken the plunge from blonde to brunette with gorgeous results

Finding a good colourist is important as colouring your hair a darker shade may require the colourist to "fill" your hair first then the desired colour formula is applied. (A "fill" is like a "primer" before you apply your foundation). For those with a more nervous temperament- why not try lowlights, which allows you to see a more gradual change in colour

Once you achieved the right shade of brunette, it is important to keep your brand new colour in good nick! Using a specialist shampoo and conditioner will prevent undesired colour fade.

For more high maintenance hair over the New Year party season, try my new 4 Brunettes glossing glimmer serum from my new BLING party range. Smooth the serum onto dry hair for a shimmering finish, keeping flyaway hair under control. Itís packed full of vitamins too, to give colour vitality and shine!

Libby asks:
I have mid back length, straight hair. My roots are white/grey and are touched up every 4 weeks, these are pre softened to take on the colour. I would like texture in my hair and was thinking about a soft perm for a tousled look. In a fashion magazine it suggested a square layered soft perm which is put through the mid length down leaving the roots but my hairdresser said I cannot perm my hair because it has been coloured too much. Is there anything that can be done to allow the soft curl to happen?

Unfortunately your hairdresser is correct to advise you not to perm coloured hair as this will dry your hair out and affect the colour. The best suggestion I have is to style your hair with loose curls using Velcro rollers or a heated appliance, but this will obviously be only temporary.

Jakki asks:
I have dyed my hair black after I fancied a change from my lighter hair colour but now Iím getting bored of it and people are saying to me that it makes my face look harsh. I donít want to go blonde but is there anything I can do to lighten the colour I have, or do I have to wait until it has fully grown out?

I would definitely book a free consultation with a Colourist who has a Wella MCE qualification - this confirms they are a colour expert. With you being so dark and wanting to go blonde you have to be very careful about the condition and also being wary of your hair going a khaki colour. It can be done but depends on the condition of your hair which is why you must see a professional.
