Lacey asks:
My Instructor at School is suggesting we use our flat irons to tap foils while in the clients hair to help them process faster. What are the pros and cons of this method?

First, be very, very careful with this method. Professional colours are designed and manufactured to colour hair to a specified time.Yes heat can speed up this process but all the manufacturers give specific guide lines and there is a professional electrical process like the Climazone from Wella for example. I would totally stay away from this method you mention with anything to do with colouring, especially bleach. The colour development and process is not only about time but result and hair condition. I have heard and seen people do this, but I WOULD NOT recommend it. I personally would rather allow the Full development time to allow the lift and tone required. The intense heat used from a straightening iron may lift the colour quicker but it will in fact increase the porosity of the hair and the colour will fade much quicker as well as the condition been affected. A good quality platform irons are a fantastic product for using AFTER colour as they will maintain the moisture and smooth the cuticle to help maintain the lustre, shine and hair condition.

Georgia asks:
My hair is naturally wavy and frizzy. I really donít like it so I straighten it most days. However, the problem is that it is also very thin, which is ok when I donít straighten it, but when I do, it looks really thin and you can even see my ears through it. How can I make it look thicker?

We have a fabulous range of products from Sebastian that have a number of products called "Body Double" that really fill any hair full of volume and are endorsed by Victoria Beckham. There is a mousse called Thickify styler that is great! A lot of salons use the products so you could call in and ask can you try them. We offer a service of trying the products on a section of your hair without charge and then you know what your hair feels like with the product.

Nadia asks:
I have dark brown hair. Last week I went to the hairdresser and had highlights done. I have now got too many highlights and so the overall hair colour became lighter and my dark brown natural colour is minimal. The highlights are also too light for my liking. I applied Keuneís medium brown direct colour, the day after I went to the hairdresser and they looked a bit better. But I would still like to darken the highlights, possibly without removing them completely. I was thinking of using some semi-permanent or demi-permanent colour. What should I do?

I really think your best bet would be to add lowlights to give a bit more contrast and to defuse the lighter ones.
