Matthew asks:
I have medium length hair it is very soft and when washed and dired goes very floppy. I have to use a lot of wax and gel to to it upright which makes it look unnatural and very greasy. What can I do to get nice and fluffy hair which looks appealing? Please help me.

I think the answer is that you need to have some layers cut into the style to create more body and hold. Also, try not to over condition the hair as this can make it soft and unmanageable - rather than using a rinse out conditioner, use a spray conditioner and see how that feels. Sometimes using a hairspray will give the hair the hold you need without actually weighing the hair down like a wax or putty can. Why not visit your hairdresser and ask for a consultation on what products they would recommend for your hair type? Unlike supermarkets or chemists, hairdressers are experts in their field and will gladly suggest the right products to achieve the look you desire.

Karli asks:
I have long straight hair and a small forehead so I do not know what kind of hair style would look good on me. My face is oval shaped and I have pale white skin and my hair is a dark brown. If you could tell me what might look good on me I would really love to know. I do not like to spend much time on my hair. My hair is parted down the middle no matter how hard I try to put it up the parting always shows. I would really like to know what to do with my hair and I do not mind having it short

You sound as though you have been ready for a change for some time. I understand your apprehension in changing your hair and wanting to make sure you get it right, it is hard to just walk into a salon and try to explain what you think you might want and then probably hating it afterwards. The most important thing is how you view yourself in your minds eye. If you see yourself as bubbly, fresh and busy then this brings up all types of visual images in your mind of what this type of person might look like or how you think you should look. Take a look on the style gallery on the site print a few off and take them along when you go for a consultation let the stylist help you choose a style that will work great with your face shape and hair.

natalie asks:
I have the hair condition trichotillomania on my hairline. I was wondering do all hairdressers get taught of these types of conditions when they are learning to be a hairdresser? Thank you xxx

Hair and scalp disorders such as Trichotillomania are taught to hairdressing students if they attend college, but many hairdressers train only in the salon and are, therefore, less likely to know anything about Trichotillomania, which is a condition where a person pulls their own hair out. This is usually because it has become a bad habit ... and it is one that should be stopped. Pulling out hair over a short period will do no harm but if this continues from the same region of the scalp the hair follicles can become distorted and hair may cease to grow from them. Confiding in your family and friends and asking them to tell you to stop when you are doing it subconsciously can be a great help. I knew one person who paid 50p every time they were caught doing it, she stopped completely after 16.50!
