Amber asks:
I am 5’4 and overweight (bout 240lbs) I am a Mum of 2 beautiful little girls and I want a new style for my hair. My hair is wavy somewhat thick and to the middle of my back however I never wear it down it is always in a bun which my husband hates! I don’t like it in my face. Back before my kids (and the weight) I had a cute Meg Ryan style short and layered all over it was wash and go and with my wavy hair was perfect. I really loved it! I would like something like that again but I’m afraid with a round full face and being overweight it would look bad or I would look MORE overweight than I am!! Please help...can you give me some ideas!

I understand in time we all change, not only our bodies but also our hair clothes and lifestyle. Yes it can be scary going short again especially if you feel you have put on weight however a good reputable hair stylist should be able to look at your face shape and cut a style to suit. Try going shorter gradually to soften the blow of going short you never know you may come across a style you like more within the process.

Gillian asks:
I have my hair coloured and it grows out grey from the roots. For the past couple of months it has been fading quickly and the colour comes of the grey roots almost instantly. I have a back problem and bone loss and have osteoporosis. I am on a lot of medication but have been for a number of years. The only new medication is the tablet once a week for osteoporosis. Is there anyway to preserve the colour?

Obviously you have had colour before that lasted and your are using the same product of color now, so it sounds like the medication is what is affecting your colour. If it is a dark permanent colour there is no reason for the color to fade off at all. You would or should just get a re-growth and usually a full head color needs a re-touch every 4 weeks as the hair grows approximately 1/2 -inch per month. Sometimes lighter blonde shades can fade off quicker due to the fact the dye load is not as heavy as the darker shades and of course if it is a demi-permanent that also will be a reason for the colour dark or light to fade. Unfortunately usually colour problems or unusual situations are due to something being on the hair, like a medication, or mineral from pipes etc. I would suggest that before you do your colour, to use a chelating shampoo to help take some of the medication away from your hair, apply the color to dry hair. After use a cuticle sealer and do not wash your hair for 24 to 48 hours immediately after the colour, these products mentioned can be found in the JOICO line, not sure this is the answer but it might help?

Natasha asks:
I am growing my hair and my fringe is down to my eye, but when I try to style it and curve it round it always just ends up being straight, so I clip it back!!

You probably need a product with a little bit of hold - to keep your hair curved round until it can go behind your ear. Regular hair spray will probably give too much hold. Try something like Lee Stafford Beach Babe Salt Spray which gives your hair just the right amount of hold and body without looking too ’done’! Another great way of disguising a fringe that is growing out is to simply pull it back with a head band or a band. These bands keep fringes in check giving serious Grecian glamour at the same time. You can mix up the look by putting hair up or simply leaving it down and tousled, depending on what look you want.
