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.

Ellie asks:
I recently dyed my hair and it has turned a strong copper almost ginger colour. I then went to the hair salon and had a semi permanent dark brown but I hated it and it washed out really quickly. It was almost black as it faded it went considerably dark. I had a stylist in and she placed a toner on it and placed blonde highlights in it which I wasnít very happy with. Unfortunately I canít afford to have anything done. What colour would you suggest and what product. If I do manage to afford to get it done would it damage my hair and make it the consistency of straw?

I would recommend you to use a semi or demi permanent colour to deposit a shade only, these types of products are the least damaging to your hair, and they will fade off and are not permanent. If you are looking to lighten your hair, I would advise you to have a professional do that service because lightening products such as bleaches or high lifting colors can cause more stress to the hair and if you do not know what you are doing can cause damage.
