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.

Sharon Humphries asks:
I have read loads of your questions and my problem is similar to other blondes going ginger. I have always had highlights done professionally been to different salons and nobody gets it right. Is it my hair? I did get nice ash blonde I do have grey at the roots but I think it ages me. My hairdresser of 6 months which is a long time for me totally ruined it last time and it turned out orange when I went back the day after to show all the underneath to her she had left the salon! I went somewhere else they put bleach highlights all over with brown in between. This looked like grey streaks! I then went somewhere else they suggested a semi colour? It just made my hair look like bland not glossy as a semi is supposed to. I have photos of what the first Hairdressers did. I am now thinking do I need a full colour or foils. I love being blonde but donít want to look trashy or old. I have lost faith in hairdressers I have had 3 colours now in 3 weeks please please help.

This is a very common problem. Take this picture to several stylists and have a complimentary consultation. Explain the problem and listen to what they have to say. Decide on which stylist makes complete sense to you. I think it sounds like you need a full head of highlights and maybe a creamy blonde. Stay away from the red tones or copper.
