Tara asks:
I have been dying my naturally dark hair for years but I have a lot of grey regrowth. I donít want to go really blonde but would I be able to make it a lot lighter for a change. I havenít dyed it for about 2 months and there are a lot of grey roots.

Grey has become such a statement hair colour and is being embraced on the catwalks and in editorial shoots - but I completely understand taking the plunge and working the grey is daunting!

If you do opt to colour your hair, pick a tone one shade or two lighter than your original color. Going too light or too dark will make you look older. To test the look, try a semi-permanent solution that lasts 6 to 12 shampoos before going for lasting colour. And if you are still keen to go light, avoid an all over light colour, ask your stylist to add some subtle highlights into your new look.
You know the reason we all go grey? To keep it as simple as possible, grey hair represents the loss of pigmentation within the hair shaft. The hair strand often becomes wiry as it is sheathed in more cuticle than most other hair types. How good you look with grey hair is determined by its texture, plus how it goes with the tone of your skin and eyes, so regardless of your colour changes, the condition of your hair is the most important thing to look after. Greying hair is the start of a natural lightening process to which you should adapt the colors of your clothes and makeup, embrace it!!

Michelle W asks:
I have very light brown hair, long and wavy. I want to add some dramatic colour highlights. I used to add pink but my hairís a lot lighter now than it used to be almost blonde in places so I donít know if pink would work so well or if I should ask for another colour but I donít want something dull. I want to really spice my hair up. What would you suggest?

Colour advice it is very hard to explain without actually seeing the overall hair colour. I suggest you seek a professional hair stylist in a salon to get the best out of your hair colour.

Marie asks:
My natural hair colour is dark blonde, both hair and skin tone is cool. I would rather have kept my own colour, but have too many grey hairs now. When I colour my hair at the salon, carefully explaining it has to be cool, the coolest theyíve got, it still turns out either slightly red or yellow/golden...When I ask, both hairdressers Iíve tried tells me that it is nearly impossible to avoid that. That sounds strange to me, as Iím sure Iíve seen lots of people with cool hair colours that look like they should...They also tell me that cool highlights are completely impossible, like it can absolutely not be done. Is this true, or should a good hairdresser be able to do these things? Your opinion would be much appreciated.

In my professional opinion any good respectable hair salon should be able to help with this matter, look out for salons that specialise in colour.
