Mandy asks:
I have been having a semi colour for the past six years, but was thinking of having a permanent colour. I mentioned to my hairdresser that I had been getting an itchy scalp and some spots on my neck and scalp. She gave me a patch test for a semi and permanent, and the semi showed up as an allergy and not the permanent. Would it still be ok to have a permanent colour?

To be honest this is very odd as usually if you have a reaction to a semi you would have one to permanent. It’s also hard to say without knowing the products in question, but my advice is not too risk a permanent colour.

Is there are general rule of thumb to wearing your hair up or down?

Warren HolmesAnswered By:

Not always. However there are some rules I stick to.
Hair Up
• Hair ups work well when the details of your outfit are on the upper section of your body.
• Keep your hair off your face. Otherwise, your hair will compete with your look.
• Wear it up if you have an interesting neckline or earrings to flaunt.
• The second day is the day to play with it. Once it’s a bit more lived in, it will be much easier to put up.

Hair Down
• Wearing hear down is great for when you want to flaunt your hair color - or when your hair us freshly dyed.
• If you have gorgeous red hair, show it off. Look at Julianne Moore!
• Heavily pigmented hair - think newly tinted reds, browns and blacks, which are at their heaviest saturation points. On the contrary, these colours can look quite severe when worn up.

My hair has no natural parting. How can I create one easily?

Warren HolmesAnswered By:

When creating a parting, it is important to remember that what you create must flatter your face shape.

• If you have a narrow or oval face, make a part on the left or right side, in line with the arch in your eyebrow. This will add fullness to your features.
• If you have a square face or wide jaw, a middle part elongates everything.
• For a prominent forehead or pointed chin, a parting that’s slightly off centre draws attention away from those areas.
• When creating the parting, separate your hair with a comb when it’s wet (this is so the roots will dry in the right direction). Keep your hands firm on your head and stroke the comb in the direction you want the hair to fall. Work through Nicky Clarke Flexible hold Mousse and blow-dry. Afterwards, mist the roots with a non-sticky hair spray. That way, you can fingerbrush your hair and it will always fall into place, without fly away strands of hair.
