Amy asks:
I have a longish bob at the moment and I'm having my hair cut soon but I don't know what to have done, as I don't think it is long enough to have it taken out of a bob yet. I have wavy/bushy hair. I also don't know if a block fringe would suit me as I have a heart shaped face. What would you recommend I get done?

As you have a heart shaped face, you can pretty much get away with any hair style that you like, as long as you avoid top heavy cuts. Bobs look great on your face shape and they work well in longer lengths too. When you go to get your hair cut, explain that you are growing your hair so would like to keep the length but just need some shape cut into your style. Ask for soft layers to soften your chin area - keep the layers cut as close to your jaw line as possible so that they can fall on to your face. Instead of going for a full block fringe which may be difficult to maintain with wavy hair, and will create too much volume on the top of your head, ask for a softer, sweeping side fringe. As your hair is naturally wavy, itís easy for you to go for the natural, mussed up waves of Kate Hudson. Simply give your hair a quick blast with your dryer and spritz with Messed Up Spray Wax (£4.49 for 150ml) for that sexy rock chick look. To wear this style smooth and straight will take you a little longer as your hair is naturally wavy, but rest assured a few extra minutes of prep will ensure your locks stay perfect all day! When blow-drying, point the dryer down the hair shaft to keep the follicles smooth, flat and shiny. Spritz your hair with a Heat Protection Spray and go over your hair lightly with Straighteners. To get your fringe looking super sexy, smooth a tiny amount of Shine Serum before giving it a quick blast with your dryer, leaving it smooth and polished!

Anne asks:
I would like new highlights for Spring/Summer 2008. I have medium brown hair, olive complexion (skin not that dark); I have brown/gold eyes. I currently have some leftover highlights in my hair from winter (copper/red, very light). My hair is long layers with a side swept bang, what do you think?

As summer comes around adding some soft highlight tones into your hair sounds perfect. Do not go to light as your natural base is medium brown some golden TOFFEE colour highlights would look fantastic. ...More >

Sometime less is more so seek a good stylist/colour technician out to give you advice on colour placement and what are your best options.

Placing small slices of color in a fantastic cut can be very effective without adding a high percentage of colour into your hair.

Hidden colour (colour not on your top sections) can have great impact and will prevent the re-growth showing allowing you to get more life out of your colour technique.

Go for it girl it sound perfect for you.

Z asks:
I wonder if you could help me? I think I need a new hairstyle and I don't know what to choose. I'm 21. I think my face is rectangular; I have a high forehead and a slightly prominent chin. I also have quite a prominent, straight nose that's almost hooked. I have long, very slightly wavy hair but I tend to just put it all in a ponytail as its long all the way round and tends to fall over my face if I let it loose. I'd really like a feminine style, because I feel that the combination of thin, rectangular face (ie high forehead and strong jaw line) and largish nose is quite masculine.

It sounds like you need a total change. With these prominent features, you should avoid wearing your hair scraped back in a ponytail. You need to have a mid length cut between your bust and shoulder - a heavy side fringe on a side parting (to offset your high forehead and nose) and long layers to bring out that lovely wave in your hair. It would look amazing. Go for it.
