Zoe asks:
My hair is very flat and I straighten or curl it nearly every day. I want it cut into an easy manageable style that is different to my usual layers. I would like something that would lift my hair and give it more body. What do you recommend?

Straightening or curling your hair everyday is a bad idea as the heat from these tools will be taking away the essential moisture that you hair needs, and eventually the signs from all of this styling will begin to show - if they havenít already! I think you should begin by using a good conditioning treatment such as Fudge Dynamite (£10.50) at least once a week. This will reconstruct any damaged areas and restore your hair to a healthier condition. As for the cut, why not try a relaxed, long, layered bob recently seen on celebrities like Diane Kruger and Anne Hathaway. Styles like these are best worn lose and wavy, and this can easily be achieved by using a diffuser attachment on your hairdryer. Diffusing gives hair movement and body, and can be achieved on a low heat setting and so is a lot kinder to your hair. Finally, work some LíOreal Techni-art Fix Move (£11.30) through you hair to set and define your new style.

S Chambers asks:
I am 50 and have long hair and always wear it up. I would like to get my hair styled but donít know what style would suit me?

I suggest simple easy styles for day wear like a loose bun thatís undone. Allow some hair to fall around the face, so your hair looks a little messed up. Pin and place the hair up and away anywhere below the crown down towards the nape zone that keeps it modern. Piled on top looks dated. Try accessorizing the hair (Kent Brushes have a lovely range from Camila Paris)

Evening Ė add a bit of movement like heated rollers or curling irons. Create a different vibe. Donít make the movement too uniform. Place hair up and wear as described above. To keep hair modern and fresh donít over do it, avoid lots of hair spray. Kind of let the hair do its thing. If the hair looks too rigid it looks old fashioned. Remember healthy, shiny hair will always look stunning.

Annemarie asks:
I have a long/oval face and very thick hair which even with top quality straighteners is very hard to straighten and to keep straight at the minute it is shoulder length but I am thinking of going for a bob style but unsure of what will suit my face and hair

You might want to try working with your natural movement or smooth some of the movement out by blow-drying with a brush. If youíre finding your hair difficult to straighten, then itís not the look for you. There are some options when if you wish to keep the hair straight. You could opt for a chemical straightening process that permanently straightens/relaxes your natural movement, such as the new Senscience Straight system (01282 683100). However it requires maintaining visiting the salon, costly and should only be done by a professional. Unless you wish to spend time and practice with the straightening irons, thereís no other solution. ...More >

Regarding what suits your face. Straight hair can sometimes emphasis a longer face shape. A little natural movement can soften a longer face shape and increase volume and body in to the hairstyle, good for a long face. The objective is to reduce the length of the face from fore head to chin. Try a fringe, long, choppy layered there are all types of fringes this will automatically shorten the face.

Focus on building width around the temple area down towards the chin or wherever the narrowest point of the face. Avoid height, as this will make the face appear longer. Layers are excellent for adding movement and softness to wavy, curly, and straight hair. Layers make any hairstyle look modern.
