I have very straight shoulder length hair. I wash and blow dry it approximately every three days. The problem I am having at the moment, and have had in the past, is that my hair is very static/ flyaway. Every time I brush it drives me mad as it just starts becoming flyaway and it feels uncomfortable. I did buy a spray but this did not seem to make much difference. What do you advice?

Styling hair is about products. The best advice would be to invest in some professional products designed to control frizz for example Alterna Hemp Seed Thickening Compound. This will give you volume, body and control, all helping to eliminate that flyaway look. Additionally, changing your haircut to something more structured, for example a bob, will help to make your hair look stronger and thicker, once again reducing the static.

I have recently had my waist length hair cut so it rests on my collar bone with layers throughout. I was hoping for a trendy new me however I have found it very difficult to manage as it kinks out even after straightening. Getting frustrated and bored I had a fringe cut in and then some feathering around my face. Still it just does not seem right or trendy I never seem to quite get the style I am trying to achieve even if I provide the hairdresser with a picture. Please help. I have fine, straight brown hair but lots of it with a square face shape.

Do not worry about whether your cut is on trend, just think about what suits you and your lifestyle best. The reason you look different to the stars in your pictures is because you have a different face shape, hair type and skin tone to them. Before making any dramatic changes have a consultation so you can discuss what you are looking for and how to recreate it at home. With your angular features I suggest a sweeping fringe. This will add softness and give your feathering a modern twist. To add volume and a bit of Hollywood glamour attach a diffuser to your hairdryer and grab a tube of my Babe Wave Styling Crème. By working this through your layers you will add body to your fine hair and leave the trend followers begging for some of your timeless style.

I really want longer hair and am considering having hair extensions. I wanted clip in ones as I thought that they would be the least likely to harm my natural hair. However I have been told by a hairdresser that they will fall out very easily and to have the ones which are glued to my head. I have heard many stories about them making peoples hair fall out and mine is naturally fine anyway. I love my hair and do not want it to get damaged but I cannot stand it being so short and want long hair again. I know hair can be woven in but that costs a lot and at 17 that is money I do not have?

The benefits of clip in hair extensions is that you can apply and remove them anytime you want. They are useful if you just want a new look when you are going out, or to add more body or colour to your hair. No hair extension technique is permanent, however the way in which they are applied will determine the gap period between them being removed and reapplied because of your own natural hair growth. I do not think that you will have many problems with your own hair growing at the age of 17, just keep it in good condition, do not use straighteners too much and eat healthy. You will find you will soon have nice long hair. My advice is just use the clip in as fun and do not get too stressed out about it.
