Beckie asks:
I have red / ginger hair and have been highlighting it blonde since I was 14. But now I actually want to go darker but hairdressers say it would be difficult because of my hair colour? Is this true and what can I do?

I think you should take the advice of the hairdresser you have visited as without seeing the condition of your hair it is hard to advise. A good hairdresser will do a strand and skin test to check that your hair is suitable for colouring. Make use of their expertise.





Tej asks:
My hair is curly, thick, long, prone to split ends because I straighten it so much and it is unbearably frizzy. I am looking for a style that will minimise the thickness and work for both curly and straight hair that requires little effort to work well. I like the length of my hair (just above my butt) but I am prepared to chop it off to just below shoulder length if need be. My face is small and quite round which none of the models these days seem to have- I want something that suits me, please help!

Geometric or square layers work best, both should be over directed back to retain extra length at front. Have it cut to just above shoulders and get your stylist to take 1 inch sections, and sharply chop hair in at roots and midlengths of your hair. How much will depend on the suitability and thickness of your hair. This will make the hair more interesting with a randomness and structure to your cut which will work both curly and straight.







Amanda asks:
I am at my wits end. I have really fine dark blonde hair. Around the front it never grows more than 3-4" before ceasing to grow anymore. I have quite a square face wider at the lower jaw. I am looking for a colour and style that will flatter my shape and also give the appearance of volume.

I think the best way to use colour in finer hair is to use contrast to give the appearance of lighter hair. By adding two different colours you give the impression of thickness as the lighter colour will appear closer to the eye and the darker colour further away, this illusion creates volume. A round shaped layer with graduation coming on to your face starting just above the jaw line, some length to be kept at back so when you tuck your hair behind ears there is still some hair to balance jawline, a slightly sweeping fringe could also work, your layers should give you more volume especially around the crown area.
