I have a round fat face and am getting married in June and want something special in black curly hair that will last.

Congratulation’s on your forthcoming wedding. Face shape and the hair style you choose are going to be very important. Click on ‘What about my face shape’ for more information and general advice. ...More >

If you are looking for hair extensions that stay curly, there are many different curly effects available to choose from. However a word of advice, curly hair can be quite challenging and requires special attention especially the curlier it is. If you are going on a honeymoon to a hot country, I would advise you have something that is more wavy then curly or even removable.

Curly pony tails that you can add to your hair for a dramatic effect and remove it after you have finished. They can be purchased as half head attachment or to be pulled around your ponytail once you have scraped back your own hair.

The advantage of these attachments is that you can take them off and put them on at will. They are often produced as synthetic and not with natural hair.

Louise asks:
I am a hairdresser but have been working very little to look after my children. I have been highlighting a friend’s hair with bleach which is fine. She has lots and very light but she now would like a few copper ones too. I am not totally sure what I should use as I know that bleached hair picks up colour.

The simple answer is if there are strands of hair within the hairstyle that are still natural try concentrating on selecting these as your target and your colour result would be great. ...More >

Yet if your friends highlights are almost a full head colour it is trickier.

Any colour you apply would be lighter/brighter due to the underlying tone.

I would recommend adding some natural base to you chosen colour to help prevent the brightening effect/ or you could pre-pigment the strands selected for highlighting, before going over with your selected shade. This will add pigment into the highlighted hair to prevent colour bounce or over brightness.

Neeko asks:
I am a 16 year old, I know that hair grows about 3 centimeters a month. The bad thing is that I only have about 3 inch long hair. I plan on getting dreadlocks and I have been told that I would at least need 6 inches of hair to make the dreadlocks otherwise it would look absurd. I am really not a waiting type of person, I can wait months but years are too long. Is there anything that can speed up my hair growth rate?

Why is your hair so short, do you cut it regularly?

If you hair is naturally that short at the age of 16, then you might have a deficiency. Try Holland and Barrett’s or boots and ask them for supplements that might help your hair grow. ...More >

However there are two approaches you can take with regards to having dreadlock, a) You can start growing them from scratch. You can do this by having your hair twisted with a holding wax and letting it grow. Each time it grows out you twist the roots again and lock it with special hair wax. This way you can start growing your own natural locks.

b) If you have hair extensions put in, then you would have to wait for your hair to be at least 6 inches so that they can stay in.
Which ever way you decide to go, remember to keep your hair conditioned. One thing to note is that when you want them removed you would have to cut your hair to the root and start growing it again from scratch.
