Claire asks:
My hair is dark thick and curly with a good layered cut (my shortest layers are shoulder length and my longest to about my mid back when straight). Although my haircut is great and looks fabulous when I leave the hairdressers or when it is just washed, a few hours later or the next morning its frizzy and messy despite me avoiding touching it or twirling it! How can I keep my curls defined without using gel or hairspray? When I have my hair cut my hairdresser twirls large sections at the end and slices into them thinning them out. Is this making my hair more messy?

Probably, thinning makes ends really light and fluffy, the ends need to be really blunt, ask your hairdresser to cut layers clean and technically, then chop out desired weight nearer the roots, technically also, this will break the curl thickness which will help keep curls separated. Try using a pre-style spray, serum or curl cream.

Rachel asks:
I was blonde and have just had my hair dyed dark brown in a salon, not keen, would like to go back to being blonde. Will go to a salon but is it possible for them to do? Will my hair be in terrible condition and could it fall out? Have been told so many different things.

I would not advise that you go straight back to blonde as this would involve stripping out your colour, which could damage the cuticles and wreck your hair. Depending on what kind of colour your put in your hair, the chemicals strip natural colour pigment from your hair shaft and will leave you with dry, brittle hair. If you would like to go blonder I would suggest half a head of highlights with a lower peroxide percentage bleach, to lift your hair a couple of shades and give you a sultry sun kissed look. If you find your hair is suffering then try a conditioning treatment to help repair the damage and drying effects that colouring hair can cause.

Ella asks:
I have an incredibly thick head of hair, and it is coarse in texture. I would like it cut as a bob, have tried several hairdressers, but they all cut my hair the same length from the inside to the outside of my head and it looks like the end of a broom once it has dried. Is there a style where if it was cut fractionally shorter on the inside, and slightly longer on the outside, it would sit flatter against my head rather than stick out an inch and a half, my hair is straight, and thick.

What you need to ask for is for your hair to be undercut, which will take the bulk away from underneath. Book the best salon in your area and explain this is what you would like. Alternatively, you could have some graduated layers in the bob to give a better shape, then ask the hairdresser to go through the hair just at root area all over with thinning scissors. This means you maintain the bob shape but the hair should like flatter and smoother.
