Tabby asks:
I have a round-oval face and quite straight, fine, thick hair. My current style is what used to be a longer take on the bob style, but itís growing out now and looks a bit awkward and boring. Iíd really like a drastic cut, just to shake things up. Iíve been considering having a "boy-short" style, with longer layers at the top to keep things feminine. The only problem is because of bad mistakes in the past, I really donít like putting product in my hair and usually just dry it upside-down every morning. So considering all this, should I go for it, or just have my old bob cut back?

If you were to have your hair cut into a shorter style, I donít have a concern with it suiting you but the irony to having shorter hair is you do have to spend time styling it, where as a bob is a very quick to look after.

I would strongly recommend booking a free consultation with your hairdresser, and take some magazine photos of styles you like so they can see your thoughts.





Jessica asks:
I have always had light blonde highlights and over the past few months have also had a base break so my roots are lighter. My hair is naturally curly and just below my shoulders. The last time I got my hair done she cut and coloured it. My stylist put some shorter layers in it as that is what I requested. She styled it straight and then used a thinning shear all over. I donít have really thick hair at all and was upset she used it. Now it feels a lot thinner and I feel like my curl is not as defined as it was. How long does it take for your hair to recover after a stylist uses the thinning shears? Does it damage your hair? How can I fix the damage? I should have asked her why she was doing that but I assumed she knew what she was doing. She knows I have curly hair and usually I wear it curly... So Iím not sure why she did that!

There is good and bad in every profession and I think you have just experienced the later. NOT TO WORRY. I would not EVER recommend using thinners for someone who styles their hair curly. This definitely reduces the curl result and definition. The stylist probably thinned the ends to remove the cutting lines that were visible after having your layered when dried straight. ...More >

I would recommend having a weave cut. By this I actually mean sections of your hair been taken as if to colour it when having weave highlights. Then each of the "weave" pieces in each section are cut at different lengths with scissors. This will thicken your thinned ends that have been put in previously.

It is really difficult and I can understand your frustration but when you have long curly hair the last think you want is normal layers introducing or your ends thinned.

The weave cut will help remedy some of your problem depending how far up your hair they went while thinning.







Sadiya asks:
My hair is black and long up to my back. I have a round face which way do you think my fringe would suit, my hair is curly I want to make it straight without using a straightener but how?

Take a look at What is my face shape? it will help you but at the end of the day it is all down to your own personal preference. If you try your fringe in a couple of directions over a week, see which one you get the most compliments for. With regards to getting your curly fringe to be straight, the quickest way is going to be with straighteners, it is not a large area and should not require extensive heat to keep it straight every two or three days. Use a good quality hair straightener protector on your fringe and use a mild temperature so as to keep your hair healthy.
