Sarah asks:
My friend described my face as up side down egg. I think that may be oval but Iím not so sure. I have very dark brown hair which is wavy and gets frizzy if I donít straighten it, so I obviously straighten my hair. What Iím not so sure about is what style I should choose and whether I suit a fringe or not. So far I just layer my hair and have a side fringe which sticks out horribly when it gets down the cheek level. I really have no idea what style would be best for me. I also straighten my hair at night only because after straightening my hair goes really puffy.

Your friend has a funny way of describing things! It does sound like you have an oval face shape and this type of face shape suits most styles. I think you should visit a professional hair salon and have a consultation and see what they come up with, they should also give you advice on how to style your hair at home and which products will make it so you only need to use the irons once a day. I would go with an open mind and go for a fringe to strengthen up your look.

Sammie asks:
I have really thick hair that is hard to manage. Itís also very dry since I have put a lot of dyes in it over the years. I have an oval face and my hair is mid- length with a fringe, but I would like to get a bob for a change of look. Please can you let me know if this style would be possible?

Bobs of all shapes and sizes are the hairstyle of the moment, thanks to celebrities like Victoria Beckham and Katie Holmes. You should feel lucky to have an oval face-shape, as most styles will suit you. If youíre feeling extra brave why not try a 1920ís inspired Ďbaby bobí; an extra short bob with a blunt fringe, recently made famous by the ultra cool Agyness Deyn, and therefore guaranteed to be the next big thing in hair trends! If this kind of striking cut sounds daunting, why not go for a more relaxed, playful bob like Gwyneth Paltrowís, which can then be styled in a lose, tousled way, or straightened to perfection for a striking, glamorous look. As you mentioned you used to regularly colour your hair, I would recommend using a deep nourishing shampoo and conditioner, such as Fudge Torture Tonic (£9.95 each), which will rebuild any dry and damaged hair, promoting a healthy, glossy shine.

Carol asks:
My hair is a shot bob is there any way of putting it up for a party!

Depending on how short your bob is, I think you have two options in putting it up for a party. If you do not have that much length to work with then I would recommend pulling up front sections of hair to create an edgy quiff. You can achieve this by creating a section at the front of your head and backcombing this section of hair. Then use a natural bristle brush such as Kentís Oval Pure Bristle Grooming Brush (£6.75) to smooth over the front of your quiff and then discreetly pin into place, setting with some powerful hairspray such as Fudge Membrane Gas (£10.95). Any hair that is too short to fit into the quiff itself can either be slicked back with gel and pinned for a dramatically sleek look, or left to hang down and straightened. If you have a mid to shoulder length bob why not try a small, delicate beehive, which can then be easily dressed up with some hair accessories for a touch more glamour! To achieve this look begin by applying some Fudge Pump Up Foaming Gel (£9.95) to your hair and then rough dry to create a matt, fluffy finish. This makes the hair more textured, giving it more grip, and so makes it easier to work with. Next, using a tail comb such as Kentís Fine Tail Comb, (£3.75) backcomb hair at the back of the crown and then again, smooth over with a natural bristle brush and secure at the base of the nape with pins. You may wish to pull out a few wispy sections of hair at the front to give the style a more bohemian, natural feel. Finish your style with a good dose of hairspray so you can enjoy your party without worrying about sections of hair falling out, and another top tip, always have some spare kirby grips with youÖ.just in case!
