Julie asks:
Can you suggest a nice style for my wedding day I have short layered hair with a fringe top layers fall to the left?

Have it blow dried really well and add a fabulous fascinator - something really sparkly that clasps your head.


Gwyneth asks:
My hair is salt and pepper now, not a nice colour at all. I went blonde for a while but my hair went very dry and brittle. I therefore went back to reddish brown, however my grey shows through within a week and looks awful should I go back blonde so the roots donít look so noticeable.

Going lighter or blonder will disguise the grey however look at other colours also that can create a contrast with blonde like honeys or caramels, these will add depth and interest. Creamier blondes will look most attractive to the eye and are much softer than a yellow tone or harsh blonde.

Anonymous asks:
I have had lice and nits and now the lice have gone but there maybe a few (not a lot since I have got a lot out) nits left and I have a hair appointment soon. Will the stylist notice them or mistake them for dandruff? And I study NVQ hairdressing but which is better BTEC or NVQ? And what qualifications do you need to open a hairdressing salon and how many courses do you have to take and how many years?

Where do I start?

The salon will NOT probably do you hair if you have any live creatures around. I would mention this so they can do a consultation on you first, so you are upfront (this stops any uncomfortable situation for both you and the salon). ...More >

Regarding your hairdressing education. Either of the two qualifications you mentioned are fine. BUT. The whole emphasis is on you. As a hairdresser and a professional we only get out of this profession what we put in. LOTS OF HARD work passion and enthusiasm.

My advice to ANYONE wanting to build a career in our fantastic industry is:

Find a placement either while at college studying or as an apprentice at the best salon you can find in your locality.

The best salon does not mean the biggest. I mean the one that has the best reputation and the most respected stylist or owner. What you learn from these people AFTER leaving college in invaluable.

I would work in a Professional Salon for at least 3-5 years building up clients and your skill base. No only in hairdressing skills but: personal skills, client communication, consultation, professionalism, image, confidence, and of course business skills that you will learn, sales, sales techniques, promotions all these things provide knowledge and understanding that is essential when you GO IT ALONE.

This may seem like a long haul, yet as I said at the beginning. IF YOU PUT THE HARD WORK PASSION AND ENTHUSIASM in from the start the fantastic opportunities that this industry have to offer open themselves up to you.

Good Luck. and a great question
