Grainne asks:
I started going grey in my teens and now I am 30 with about 50% grey. I am medium brown naturally and dye my hair to this colour every 3 weeks to cover the roots that come through so quickly. I am worried about applying dye to my hair so often due to the chemicals. I have tried all the natural products and they donít work including Henna. It is also very time consuming to colour my hair so frequently and if I was to truly cover my grey I would do it every 2 weeks! I wonder if you can advise a style or method of colouring I could use to help disguise the grey when it comes through. I have a side parting so that probably makes the white line more obvious. Also, do you know of a safe more natural and effective way for me to cover my grey? Even some sort of hair marker to cover the white line would be good for in between dyes.

Unfortunately the word GREY seems to be a horrible word and almost anyone with grey hair wants to cover it, FAST if you were to keep the parting then hair mascara can be used, this is a pen like product that can be used in between your colour to disguise the roots. However if you was to cut your hair doing away with the parting and shorter this would disguise your grey even more so but you would still have to keep up your regular colour. Personally, I think all over grey on short hair can look great if it has a dynamic style to suit.

Kimberly asks:
I have been dying my hair a semi-permanent black for about 3 or 4 years now and Iím getting tired of it! I want red red red! Think Anne of Green Gables red! I have been doing research on getting black out, and I have found several mixed reviews. So my question is how bad is color Fix, or that LíOreal zap stuff? I have long, very soft, shiny beautiful hair and I donít want to destroy it. What advice do you have for me? And can you dye over the color fix?

I get asked theses kind of questions frequently and there is really only one sure way of achieving the correct look you want. There are so many colours on the shop shelves these days itís hard to get the right one. If you really know what colour you want or have a picture of the shade you like take it in to a salon which specialises in colour and this colour should be able to be achieved on the same day in one session rather than choosing colours from the shops. Ideally, Jo Hansford and Daniel Galvin/Joshua Galvin are great recommended colour salons.

Pam asks:
I have an oblong face, and am a little bit chubby round the cheeks, but everything else is fine. I also have straight dark brown hair. > What sort of hairstyle would suit me the most?

If you are seeing yourself with an íoblong faceí; it normally points to a longer shape to your face. Although you have some chubbiness around the cheeks; this will not tend to íround the face out, so over all you want to avoid shapes that will draw on your features and accentuate length. If you are wearing your hair straight avoid gong too long on the sides and front, as this will only draw down on your face. Some longer layer for movement could be just what youíre looking for. As for the color; not knowing your skin tone, eye colour etc; I would suggest a consultation with a local professional that you feel comfortable with; they can give you incite as to why certain colours will work for you best.
