Carly asks:
All my life I have had short hair, shoulder length at its longest, and it has always been a really dark colour, itís black at the min. I would really like to change my hair and go for a chocolate brown with caramel coloured highlights but I also want to have really long hair, so also extensions are in the picture. I was looking at hairstyles the stars have and really like a cross between Tyra Banks and Cheryl Cole hairstyles. Any recommendations/price ranges? I also have an oval face with medium to pale skin tone but often use fake tan, would this hairstyle suit both skin tones and my facial shape?

Has your hair been naturally short, or have you kept it to a certain length by cutting it?

Shoulder length hair is an acceptable length for hair extensions. I would recommend you go no longer than 16Ē which would come down to about your bra strap at the back. ...More >

If you find a good consultant, she should be able to supply your with the mixture you want without making it look too odd. If you have a sensitive scalp, or your hair is quite fine, then I would recommend one of three techniques: Hook and Latch (no thread no glue) Micro ring track (using cold bond and micro rings) this is very light and very flat or the integrated weave technique (thin cornrow with weft of hair added)

All of the above techniques does not have any individual stress points to the hair and gives even distribution throughout. The integrated weave is particularly good for hot weather or if you have a hectic physical lifestyle such as the gym or swimming.

With regards to your face shape, it would be up to your technician and self to decide on styling your hair after the extensions have been added. Tyra Banks and Cheryl Cole use different types of extensions to produce a certain look. If you have not used hair extensions before or have experience in working with long hair, I suggest you break yourself in gently, when you get use to them you can then become a little more adventurous.

What you should expect to pay should be between £230 - £280 for 100% Remy treated hair.





Hayley asks:
I havenít had my hair cut in a long while and now and itís coming up to my 18th birthday. Iím going to have my hair done and I keep leaning toward a inverted bob, but Iím unsure as I have really long hair at the moment and donít know whether I want to cut it off. I have nice cheek bones and good bone structure; do you think I should go for it?

If you have had long hair for a long time now, cutting it into a sleek bob will be a refreshing change and a dramatic way to turn 18!

Shorter hair can often look more sophisticated and can be easier to look after than long locks. ...More >

With the correct styling, the inverted bob works well on almost anyone, although itís best if your hair isnít too curly as this look works best as a smooth, sleek style. Itís great for framing good bone structure too so will be ideal for you!

At the hairdressers, ask for long, graduated layers to the nape of the neck, ensuring that the base line is shattered. Finish with face framing longer sections at the front.

You will need to keep your hair in fantastic condition for this style

Wash with a shampoo like my Poker Straight shampoo with P2Fifty, (£4.49 for 250ml) to make hair shiny and smooth and protect against heat damage. Follow with an ultra moisturising conditioner like my sofLee sofLee intense conditioner, (£5.99 for 200ml.)

Make sure that you use at home intensive treatments between salon visits. My Poker Straight Intensive Treatment with P2Fifty, (£6.99 for 200ml) will keep it super moisturised.

This style can be worn in two ways. High maintenance- a la Posh; to achieve this look, apply a small amount of my new Poker Straight Shine serum, (£6.99 for 50ml) to damp hair before blow drying.

You need to blow dry down the shaft of the hair follicles to get the cuticles as flat as possible.

Follow with my Poker Straight and Kinda Curly Irons and another small amount of my new Poker Straight Shine serum, (£6.99 for 50ml) for mega watt gloss.

To wear this style in a more relaxed way- think Kirsten Dunst Ė just give hair a quick blast with the hairdryer and run through some of my brand new product Messed Up Wonder Webb, (£5.49 for 50ml).







Sara asks:
I'm 32 and have always been very blonde; as I have got older I have so much white and grey hair coming through my hair looks very colourless and ashy. I keep going to hair salons and having bad colour done and I feel I need some warmth, but my latest colourist said it would be better cool as I would find warmth brassy. She added too many creamy blonde highlights. I feel itís now too blonde. Is there a colour you would recommend to add warmth and darken the tone? Can I get the colour done on top of the current highlights?

Lee StaffordAnswered By:

I would suggest that you have the blonde broken up with some biscuity dark blondes and light browns. This will give your hair lots of tone and definition, the blondes can stay ashy but by introducing the dark blondes that will give your hair a little warmth too. Make sure you donít have any more bleach put on your hair unless it is for regrowth as hair breaks if it becomes too over processed. As you are colouring your hair so much, you need to make sure it is always in excellent condition which will help to improve the way it looks even before you have anything else done to it. Grey and white hairs are also coarser than normal hair and so you need to be giving your hair extra special attention.

You need to be using super moisturising shampoos and conditioners for coloured hair, try my Colour Love shampoo and conditioner £3.99 250ml to nurture stressed hair. My Hot Shots For Blondes £6.99 3x 15ml, not only moisturises hair but also targets yellow in blonde hair and stops brassiness by making hair icy bright and baby blonde.
