Amy asks:
I have always had long, straight, highlighted hair. I really want a change but I am to scared to go short. My face is a little chubby and oval. I think I am too pale to go for a dark colour. My hair is also fairly thin. Can you suggest a new cut or colours? Or am I stuck with lanky blond locks?

The first thing to consider is your face shape. If your face is oval shaped then you should not go to short at the sides or add too much curl as this will emphasis the oval shape, other than this the world is your oyster.

It might be nice to go shorter at the back but leaving length towards the front. Another possibility is to have some form of layering added to create movement and texture. As far as colour is concerned I would suggest maybe trying warmer tones rather than light blondes, maybe something like a mixture of honey blondes and some subtle warm colours.

Rachel asks:
I have a halter neck dress what style do you think I should wear my hair is past my shoulders all up or front up and sides and the back left down.

If you want to expose your back, as I imagine you would having chosen the dress, I would go for drama and sweep the hair up and away to really define the design. You could leave a few pieces down for softness around the face.

Tim asks:
I am a 16 year old male, I usually have a pretty short cut, grade 3 on the sides and trimmed on top to suit, I usually use gel which does the job I guess. However, as of late I have been letting my hair grow because I fancy a change. The thing is after about an inch length on the sides my hairs gone really curly. At the top of the ears it doesn’t grow over them it just curls back upwards in little ringlets and it is the same with the back. On top its just a mess. I can straighten the fringe which looks better, but the sides and back refuse to straighten properly which just flare out at a right angle above my ears. My hair is very resilient and I have tried a number of products. Which does not give a good look, and mousse just seems to make it even curlier. Any ideas? Should I let it grow? At the moment when I pull down my sides come just above the bottom of my ears, on top is about 8cm and my sideburns are non-existent as they curl upwards in line with the bottom of my ears. I want to find out what it will be like once grown past the curls up at the ear stage or maybe you could give me an idea? Or should I go back to a grade 3 on the sides. Your advice would be much appreciated.

My hair is also very curly, so I sympathise with your situation. To be honest, you will have to grow your hair longer so that the weight of the hair pulls it a little more straight. In the meantime I would suggest using ceramic straightening irons to smooth out your hair, as it sounds like it is long enough to achieve this. As far as products are concerned, there really is no product that you can apply that will straighten your hair without styling first, but there are chemical straightening processes worth enquiring about which will help relax the curl in your hair. Failing all this, it is back to the short back and sides!
