Hayley asks:
I havenít had my hair cut in a long while and now and itís coming up to my 18th birthday. Iím going to have my hair done and I keep leaning toward a inverted bob, but Iím unsure as I have really long hair at the moment and donít know whether I want to cut it off. I have nice cheek bones and good bone structure; do you think I should go for it?

If you have had long hair for a long time now, cutting it into a sleek bob will be a refreshing change and a dramatic way to turn 18!

Shorter hair can often look more sophisticated and can be easier to look after than long locks. ...More >

With the correct styling, the inverted bob works well on almost anyone, although itís best if your hair isnít too curly as this look works best as a smooth, sleek style. Itís great for framing good bone structure too so will be ideal for you!

At the hairdressers, ask for long, graduated layers to the nape of the neck, ensuring that the base line is shattered. Finish with face framing longer sections at the front.

You will need to keep your hair in fantastic condition for this style

Wash with a shampoo like my Poker Straight shampoo with P2Fifty, (£4.49 for 250ml) to make hair shiny and smooth and protect against heat damage. Follow with an ultra moisturising conditioner like my sofLee sofLee intense conditioner, (£5.99 for 200ml.)

Make sure that you use at home intensive treatments between salon visits. My Poker Straight Intensive Treatment with P2Fifty, (£6.99 for 200ml) will keep it super moisturised.

This style can be worn in two ways. High maintenance- a la Posh; to achieve this look, apply a small amount of my new Poker Straight Shine serum, (£6.99 for 50ml) to damp hair before blow drying.

You need to blow dry down the shaft of the hair follicles to get the cuticles as flat as possible.

Follow with my Poker Straight and Kinda Curly Irons and another small amount of my new Poker Straight Shine serum, (£6.99 for 50ml) for mega watt gloss.

To wear this style in a more relaxed way- think Kirsten Dunst Ė just give hair a quick blast with the hairdryer and run through some of my brand new product Messed Up Wonder Webb, (£5.49 for 50ml).





Sara asks:
I'm 32 and have always been very blonde; as I have got older I have so much white and grey hair coming through my hair looks very colourless and ashy. I keep going to hair salons and having bad colour done and I feel I need some warmth, but my latest colourist said it would be better cool as I would find warmth brassy. She added too many creamy blonde highlights. I feel itís now too blonde. Is there a colour you would recommend to add warmth and darken the tone? Can I get the colour done on top of the current highlights?

I would suggest that you have the blonde broken up with some biscuity dark blondes and light browns. This will give your hair lots of tone and definition, the blondes can stay ashy but by introducing the dark blondes that will give your hair a little warmth too. Make sure you donít have any more bleach put on your hair unless it is for regrowth as hair breaks if it becomes too over processed. As you are colouring your hair so much, you need to make sure it is always in excellent condition which will help to improve the way it looks even before you have anything else done to it. Grey and white hairs are also coarser than normal hair and so you need to be giving your hair extra special attention.

You need to be using super moisturising shampoos and conditioners for coloured hair, try my Colour Love shampoo and conditioner £3.99 250ml to nurture stressed hair. My Hot Shots For Blondes £6.99 3x 15ml, not only moisturises hair but also targets yellow in blonde hair and stops brassiness by making hair icy bright and baby blonde.







Laci asks:
I have unbelievably thick, curly, frizzy, uncontrollable hair. If I stood 5 feet away from a wall my hair would touch it. I just cut it up to my shoulders which is turning out not to be the best idea I ever made. I donít exactly want get rid of the curls but the volume is driving me crazy, The only way I can ever get rid of the volume is to straighten it with a flat iron which gives me split ends and eventually looks worse then before, and doing the blow-drying thing seems to do nothing I've thought about cutting my hair really short and sometimes spiking it or a Mohawk I think thatís what its called. But that would be a little scary, seeing as how I'm only 13 and never have cut my hair that short before in my life. I would not mind having it chemically straightened but I have highlights will that cause a problem. What should I do?

The Mohawk style sounds great and could well work for you, you will need to commit to a certain amount of effort with styling but this can be really easy to do. If you are scared that it is too extreme then have a look through hair magazines for examples of softer less dramatic styles that may have a slightly Mohawk look about them but without being too harsh. Visit a local stylist (you can find you nearest at the ĎFind a Saloní section on UKHairdressers.com) for some advice before you do anything, they will advise you on how to control your hair as well as options for cuts and styles and what styling may be required. While you are deciding whether or not to go for the Mohawk, the best way to control frizzy unruly hair is to get some condition back into your hair. Try deep conditioning treatments, TIGIís Treat Me Right intensive conditioner will help put the moisture back into your hair, and a leave-in conditioner such as TIGIís Ego Boost will help protect your hair. Leave-in conditioners are great for curly hair as well as conditioning they help to fight frizz at the same time. Whenever possible have a break from using heated appliances. Heat causes immense damage to your hair and using heat less often you will notice the difference in your hairís condition. If your hair has gone frizzy through the day tame your frizz for an evening out with a defining product such as TIGIís Uptight Curl Maker. Shine sprays are an excellent light product to use on your hair to give it a glossy coating, this helps smooth it and deters the dreaded static and frizz, TIGIís Headrush spray smells gorgeous and is long lasting. Curly hair can be great for creating more wild styles and can be tamed into this seasons trendy wavy and curly looks. If you wish to continue straightening your hair ensure you use a heat protective styling product such as TIGIís Extra Extra Straight or TIGIís Control Freak Serum. Proto-col collagen supplements (taken orally) will also help to avoid poor condition of the hair and promote shine. Donít keep going over the same section again and again, itís better to go over it with the straighteners slowly and get it right first time then keep reapply those hot irons to it, causing more damage in the long run.
