Lakshmi asks:
I have a big round face with a wide cheek area. My hair has been a total mess. I have fine, thin straight black hair and after my first child, it has become worse. I desperately need a hair makeover but have no clue about styling or the cut that would suit me. I also have a wide/broad forehead which makes me look bald. Please advice what kind of cut and style I need to go for.

First of all congratulations on being a Mum the hardest but most rewarding job in the world! Now trying to find time for yourself and your hair Iím sure is not easy. ...More >

You have a couple of issues here; first your hair is fine. Take a good look and see if you are trying to hold on to too much length which could be dragging on you. If you donít have a lot of time or hair, you many want to look at a shorter cut that can be more wash and wear. As for your round face, donít despair! What you need is an hour or so to yourself guilt free! Get a family member of a friend to look after the little one while you go for a professional consultation at a salon youíve always wanted to go to. Let them give you a couple of options and donít be afraid of taking photoís from magazines to let them know what you like yourself, even if the hair is nothing like yours, they will have an indication of what you like and you can work towards a goal togetherÖ.If a salon is not willing to give you this time and advice, move on to one that will.

Above all keep it simple and smart. Something you donít have to spend time on but can feel good about being a new mum is a full time job; so remember; every job has a day off every now and then, so work some you time into your schedule to pamper mum. Youíll benefit and consequently everyone around you will too

Michelle asks:
My hair is incredibly dry. It doesn't stay straight but instead creates bumps at the sides all the time. I don't know why this is happening and I've tried so many products including hair conditioner to get rid of this problem. It looks really unsightly and it undermines my confidence. Even when I try to straighten it with straighteners, the hair will still create that same bump. I've tried to make the bumps more straight in the past by concentrating heat using the hairdryer but to no avail. I'm at a loss at what to do. Please help!

It sounds like you have tried most things, but don't give up just yet! Firstly I would strongly recommend a leave in conditioner like Sebastian Potion 9. This will hopefully help with the dryness and add some shine.

As far as the bumps in your hair, you could try having your hair chemically straightened with something like Wellstraight, but make sure this is done in a professional salon.

Stephanie asks:
I have black hair and naturally blonde roots I have thin hair but it isn't damaged and I was wondering if stripping the black (professionally) would cause my hair to fall out? If I did get it stripped and then dyed blonde how blonde would it go?

There are several products in the professional market to deal with decolorizing hair as a result of a professional application; your hair should not unduly suffer. But you will have gone through a major change for your hair, so be sure to work with professional products to nurture your hair after. As for choosing your professional salon to do the work; shop around; go for a couple of consultations and see how comfortable you feel; many salons have experts in colour and will put you at ease with any questions you may put to them! So embrace your new change and see if blondes truly do have more fun! Try Senscience True Hue Colour beads once your transformation is complete; theyíll protect and enhance the results of your new look.
