Angus asks:
I am a 17-year-old boy who was thick, curly big hair which is quite long. I dyed it a darker shade of brown than my natural colour in the summer and some of it still remains in a nice light kind of way. I have straigtheners but I think I need a haircut. I would like to get a 60s/70s style quiff like Jake Gyllenhaal's in Zodiac, would this possible with curly hair?

Yes you can achieve this, however, you may need to work the quiff a little if your hair is too curly. I suggest that you take a photo of Jake to your hairdresser, and create a look around that, taking your curly hair into consideration, as some parts may need to be cut shorter to control your hair and make it easier for you to achieve a great look with ease.

Tracy asks:
My hair is coloured Koleston perfect 55/46 on top and 22/0 underneath. I have recently had a perm. It took really well on the dark hair but on the red hair it is like chewing gum. Could the red colour be affected differently?

There is nothing quite like a brilliant red as you had 55/46. But, if your hair is not in perfect condition it would be affected by a perm, also if the perm solution was too strong for your hair type it may have caused this problem. Strong reds and perms often do not mix well. It was not the colour that caused this, it was the perm. From your description. It sounds to me that your hair is ruined , as I am not liking the words chewing Gum. What I suggest is to opt for a straighter look again and have a total restyle. Get as much as the perm out as possible. In the meantime, use strong red shade from the Colour Fresh range all over the red part of your hair- these are true semi permanent shade that will add great tone and shine to your hair. You can continue to use Koleston on the roots, but feed the ends with Colour Fresh. Also use a treatment at least 3 times a week until your hair begins to feel in better condition.

Ros asks:
I have naturally wavy/curly hair, for a while now I have been wearing it straight. I have thick hair and have had it thinned quite a bit and layered quite a bit too, my layers are different lengths. I think the blading technique was used so the layers are very varied, some are very short. Since having this style I've noticed that my curls have more or less gone. I would love to have my curly hair back, what do I need to do? Do I need to just grow the hair out again? I have tried scrunch drying it using curling products but its not like it used to be.

The blading technique can increase or reduce curl depending on how it is applied while cutting the hair. If you are experiencing the natural curl you have been less apparent, then I would suggest having some layers put back in using scissors. This will thicken up the ends of your hair much more and strengthen the internal shape of your hair cut. ...More >

This should promote an easier curl result.

Also do not scrunch your hair from wet through.

After washing towel dry your hair to about 60% dry if you can. Excessive water in your hair will only weigh down your hair while drying reducing the curl result. After towel drying apply Professional Techni art Curl up memory about the size of a fifty pence piece in your hand and gradually apply it to your hair. Before diffusing take sections and twist them around your fingers until you have completed all the hair on your head. Then apply heat from the hairdryer with the diffuser and your curl will be fabulous.
