Jessj asks:
I am a teenager, with waist length, straight, dark brown hair. I want to get it cut professionally in a salon but because of bad experiences I am absolutely terrified. Last time I went to a salon the hairdresser didnít do what I asked for and added in layers and although it did look quite nice in the end, I hated the fact he didnít listen to what I asked for. I feel like some hairdressers think I wonít notice if they cut off more without asking because my hair is so long. Everyone always comments on how nice and healthy my hair is but Iím so tired of it and I would like to get around six inches cut off because there are lots of split ends but Iím so scared to get it done. It sounds silly, I know, but I just canít explain how nervous and scared I feel.

It is a shame you feel this way, although completely understandable. A trip to the hairdressers should be a relaxing and enjoyable experience. A professional hairdresser always conducts a thorough consultation at the beginning of the appointment, and a good one should last at least 15 minutes, giving the client plenty of time to ask any questions or discuss any concerns about the hairstyle you have in mind. The hairdresser will then talk you through every process, so you are completely aware of what is happening at each stage of the appointment. Please donít be afraid to speak up and voice any concerns you may have. The hairdresser wants you to be happy with the finished result, remember their ultimate aim is for you to become a regular client, so they will always have your best interests at heart.

Bethany asks:

I was a dark blonde and bleached my hair which Iíve ended up with one block colour of a yellow with hints of orange in it. I want to be a light ash blonde colour. I do have a light ash blonde tube of colour and peroxide. Would I be able to put this straight on bleached hair? I donít want to do it and it go green? Is there anything you can recommend.

Hi Bethany

If your hair is very yellow and orange it should be okay. But keep checking the colour as it processes and use a protein porosity equalizer to help prevent the colour grabbing in the more vunerable areas. ...More >

Good luck

Lowri asks:
I went to my hairdressers and requested an ombre colour and the result is awful Ė the top of my hair is brown, the front is black and the bottom is blonde. I want to get the colour corrected asap and achieve a light brown with blonde highlights. Please can you help?

If your hair has been ruined by a colourist, the best thing to do is complain at the time and refuse to pay full price. Explain why itís not what you wanted and how itís different to what you asked for. Most salons will simply refund you or offer to correct the damage, as they wonít want to damage their reputation. I recommend that you go back to the salon and explain why you are unhappy. Ask for a full consultation before you proceed with the colour correction.
