Amy Harvey asks:
Hey, my hair is a mid brown but id love my hair to be a reddy ginger colour, can a hairdresser turn my hair that colour without having to bleach it? As I don’t think my hair could take anymore bleach

Hi Amy,

To achieve a perfect copper tone in the hair ideally you would need to take out most the previous colour. ...More >

You could do this in a number of ways.

clarifying shampoo-

use this shampoo for a month and it should hopefully lift enough for a good base for the copper colour.

milkshake lightning oil-

milkshake do a great product called lightning oil, NO ammonia and its not a bleach but it will lift coloured hair enough to make a PERFECT base

if none of these are an option, you CAN put a copper tone over previous colour but you would have to make sure it was similar dept to your hair colour now.

Hope this helps

Dave





Sue asks:
I have had long hair since I was a young girl, I am approaching 40 and think that I need a new look. I have a long face and some people have told me I would suit my hair shorter. Are there any styles that are good for long face shapes that are current and won’t be too dramatic. I also have brown hair and I would like to be a little more adventurous, I am pale with brown eyes. Can you recommend anything that would suit me.

Hi, i can completely understand how time can get the better of you and hairstyles become hard to change as instinctively humans don’t like too much change, that being said you obviously understand the importance of a revamp. Because you have long hair and always have the option to cut shorter, for you first attempt at restyling it i would keep it simple but different, this way when you keep coming back to the salon we can keep changing it. The ideal shape for a ladies hair is oval, this is the shape we will try and achieve when cutting your hair, so because your face shape is longer you need to consentrade on round shapes to give width some great options would be to: ...More >

• classic round layering - the simplest way to give body and width but very effective
• fringe - a heavy straight fringe is not only cool and fresh for A/W14 it will give an amazing amount of width and make your restyle come to life
• long bob - cutting the length up to maybe a long bob will be perfect for you, this is huge in London at the moment because you can still wear it up, curl it and also have it straight, versatility is MASSIVE at the moment.
• short crop - the extreme way to create a new look and something perfect for you, maybe it would be good to build up to this as you will keep reinventing yourself but still if your look to make an impact to friends and family, this will do it!

now for colour,

as you have paler skin i would work with warm tones like your, copper, reds and golds which is perfect for A/W14 coming up. maybe an allover application of a burnt copper will bring out your eye colour make your hair super shiny, the other alternative is some soft blonde highlights or ombre nothing light maybe golden blonde finely woven highlights so it looks like the sun as hit it, this is also pick up your skin tone and get you glowing again.
