Ian asks:
Hi, please give me some advice. I am 25 and receding a bit at the front, I would like a trendy hair style that is a bit shorter and with more style that I can mess up a bit when I go out at night. I like to be fashionable and really want to reduce the obvious receding can you recommend something that might suit me - I have quite a long face which seems to make the receding worse. My hair is quite boring and needs a good cut at the moment.

If your forehead is becoming more prominent I would cut the hair short all over while slightly tapering the back and sides. Also I would recommend hair paste Ė apply to hair to make it messy by distributing throughout Ė then smooth down sides and back. This minimises the appearance of hair loss because of the rough texture and extra volume.

Emily asks:
I am blonde and would like to go either red or copper, I would like it to look really different and am worried that it may not stay bright for very long. Can you recommend a really good shade to go for and if I should have more than one tone or keep it one colour? I am pale in complexion and have got shoulder length hair.

If you are thinking of changing your colour, ease yourself in with a mid-way shade first; that way if you find you are not getting on with it you can easily get back to blonde pretty easily. A good shade to go for would be a soft coppery blonde (think Isla Fisher) this will last up to 6 weeks whilst promoting shine and condition in the hair. Alternatively, using a combination of foiled pieces in various shades of copper and golden blonde as well as an all over colour of deeper titan red copper will create depth and movement in the hair. Using a colour specific shampoo and conditioner is also something I would recommend, this will keep the colour locked in making the shade stay truer for longer.

Victoria asks:
I have long fine hair which is naturally wavy but doesnít look good straight as it just íhangsí. I also donít suit short styles and donít have much time (or ability) for styling. Last year I had it permed - it was the best thing I did, I loved it, it was the only time I have EVER felt good about my hair and it really boosted my confidence. I had it re-done six months after the first time, but it didnít take well and they had to re-do it (admittedly it was not as good as the first time). Now six months later I have since moved and gone to a new hairdresser, who has refused to do it again. He told me the ends were too damaged and the only thing I could do was to have it cut short and let it re-grow. As I already said it does not suit me short or straight and I have a problem with my hands which makes using tongs and straighteners difficult anyway. I am gutted and really donít know what to do - advice please.

The hairdresser who refused to do it might have been right (difficult to say without seeing your hair) because by now youíve had 3 perms in the last 6 months and if your hair is past your shoulder itís about 2 or 3 years old. So all the chemical work you had done is still there plus the effects of 3 summers, chlorine from the swimming pool, etc and the wear and tear of the hair rubbing on your clothes. So ideally you need to grow all the perm out. The first perm you had was great because it was done on virgin hair. You should only have a perm once a year and you should definitely cut quite a bit of the old hair off.
