My son has a oval or heart shaped face (cant tell which) long thick hair that natural grew into like a bowl cut almost. We are trying to find a good haircut to start school in. He is going to be in first grade. He wants to keep his hair long, but I dont want his hair to look shaggy or girlish like it does now. Can ya help?"

Hi there.
Absolutely!! You are looking for , whatís called a "surfer dude" look.
Itís a longer graduated layer cut for boys hair . With thick hair this is a perfect solution.
Ask the stylist to chop (sometimes itís refered to as thining or slicing into the hair when the layerís are cut. This will give you nd him the individual look required and avoid the shaggy girly look ! ...More >

Hope this helps!






Aubrianna asks:
Would both of my daughters (one 11 and one 12) look good with a pixie cut? One has brown hair, and the other blonde. They want their hair like Miley Cyrus! Generally, like a pixie cut but one of them wants their bangs swooped over to the side and the other one wants short hair on the sides and her bangs on the shorter side but still being able to pin them up! Thank you so much!!

The pixie cut is very popular with tweeners so the answer is yes!! This age is an ideal tme to experiment on styles to get used to finding out what suits their face shape and personality etc..it also helps avoid making a drastic hair style change when older ( we all know how that can go!)and its fun. In Reference to Miley Cyrus ... her particular style is VERY short on her temples and nape so I would suggest some thing a bit longer , still shaped over ears and nape , but not necessarily buzz cut(as hers is ) You didnt say if your girls hair was straight, curly , thick , fine ? all of the mentioned can have a pixie cut taylored to hair type . Re the long Side fringe(bangs) the fringe should be a graduated cut chipped into. A good guide for length is for the start to be on eybrow and the end just long enought to hook over ear .. The shorter fringe should be layered and although still asymetric not so steep.. I suggest you look on the hairstyle finder tab on this site ..there are lots of variations and you can have a bit of this, and a bit of that, makes it more individual for your girls. They can play around with products too and clips sleeking it back, funking it up and pinning the sides to mention a few options . Hope they love their new haircuts .... Marion







Olivia asks:
Could you please give me some advice on choosing the right hair extensions. I have shoulder length hair and it is quite thin and flat, I would really like to be able to have it curly and make it look thicker all of the time and have only ever tried using clip in hair extensions. I am not sure if I should get longer lasting extensions put in and am worried that I wont be able to look after them properly and they will look a mess. How easy will it be for me to blow dry extensions that are attached and will it cost a lot to keep them up?

The most important advice here is go to a HABIA accredited salon with professional certified trained extensionists - you need a detailed consultation to decide a system that would be suitable for your hair and lifestyle. With fine flat hair you should go for flatter bonded extensions which will blend perfectly with your natural hair. Balmain Hairís SystŤme Volume comes in 2 strengths fine and normal , it wonít overburden your hair and will add as much volume as you desire. Electrical appliances can be used for easy blow drying or adding curl and texture. At your consultation make sure you ask everything you want to know including aftercare to ensure your new hair stays in tip- top condition.
