Angela asks:
I used to have highlights but in May I dyed my hair dark brown with a semi permanent and have since used a permanent dye twice (all salon) I would like to go the same sort of colour as Jessica Alba latest (dark base with some lighter highlights) do you think this would be possible? Could you recommend a salon in London which is good but not overly expensive? Thank you

This look could easily be re-created in your hair as you already have a dark base to begin with. Simply visit your colour technician and opt for some lighter caramel tones to enhance your base colour, whilst giving you the natural softness you see in Jessica Alba locks.

Hob salons would be able to help you achieve this look, with 14 salons based throughout London, Middlesex, Hertfordshire and Essex.

Lizzie asks:
I am 49 years old with an oval face and curly hair. My hair is coloured with mid brown highlights, but I would not mind going to a more natural grey colour. My problem is I always seem to end up looking like I have had an old fashioned shampoo and set. Any advice on styles and colour please.

I love curly hair and even when it is naturally grey it can still look stunning. I agree that many people with curly hair do tend to look like they have an old fashioned shampoo and set or a round shape due to the solid rounded layers they have cut in.

This is very UNFLATTERING and my advice would always be to have a weave cut or texture introduced internally into your shape to stop this happening. In simple terms it opens up spaces within your hair cut to allow your natural curl to move and have freedom. This will definitely stop your previous set look happening and will make your hair easier to style and far more fashionable as this allows you to have control over your hair rather than vice versa.

Karen asks:
I have long hair and a side fridge. I recently dyed my hair brown I use to have blonde highlights but I needed a complete change after having my baby I have no time to think of hair cuts and colours. I was thinking whether to go shorter or not. I need help!

After a baby is born you have little time for yourself. It could be a great confidence booster providing everything is right. Face shape, hair texture and density as well as lifestyle are all important when making a decision over your hair. ...More >

Firstly, I would think about going for something that is low maintenance yet still very fashionable like a bob/graduated bob.
These styles will always look well kept with little effort as they are structured haircuts that fall into place. Providing you do not have curl or natural wave in your hair these could be two good options.

However if you do have natural wave or curl then time spent blow drying would be essential.

If this seems too much of a change, then you could always go for some long soft layers introduced into your hair cut, either with scissors or preferably a razor. This would give your hair a soft light layering technique that would reduce drying time but give you a new soft layered hairstyle. This would still allow you the added luxury of being able to tie it back for ease when the babies feeding time comes along.
