Carly asks:
All my life I have had short hair, shoulder length at its longest, and it has always been a really dark colour, itís black at the min. I would really like to change my hair and go for a chocolate brown with caramel coloured highlights but I also want to have really long hair, so also extensions are in the picture. I was looking at hairstyles the stars have and really like a cross between Tyra Banks and Cheryl Cole hairstyles. Any recommendations/price ranges? I also have an oval face with medium to pale skin tone but often use fake tan, would this hairstyle suit both skin tones and my facial shape?

Has your hair been naturally short, or have you kept it to a certain length by cutting it?

Shoulder length hair is an acceptable length for hair extensions. I would recommend you go no longer than 16Ē which would come down to about your bra strap at the back. ...More >

If you find a good consultant, she should be able to supply your with the mixture you want without making it look too odd. If you have a sensitive scalp, or your hair is quite fine, then I would recommend one of three techniques: Hook and Latch (no thread no glue) Micro ring track (using cold bond and micro rings) this is very light and very flat or the integrated weave technique (thin cornrow with weft of hair added)

All of the above techniques does not have any individual stress points to the hair and gives even distribution throughout. The integrated weave is particularly good for hot weather or if you have a hectic physical lifestyle such as the gym or swimming.

With regards to your face shape, it would be up to your technician and self to decide on styling your hair after the extensions have been added. Tyra Banks and Cheryl Cole use different types of extensions to produce a certain look. If you have not used hair extensions before or have experience in working with long hair, I suggest you break yourself in gently, when you get use to them you can then become a little more adventurous.

What you should expect to pay should be between £230 - £280 for 100% Remy treated hair.

Jessica asks:
My hair is quite fine and I was wondering if real extensions would damage my hair even more or should I just get the clip in ones and if so do you know any cheap places in the Aberdeenshire area?

Real hair extensions would not damage your hair if they are correctly applied and looked after. With fine hair, you have a couple of choices as to which techniques might best suit you. Firstly it depends on the length of your hair and the overall style and look that you want as an end result.

It might be best if you look at trying non aggressive techniques such as the Hook and Latch (no glue no threads) Micro ring track, (nice flat technique without stressing your hair) or the integrated weave hair extension techniques. You can see what these techniques look like by visit our website for more information.

Katie asks:
I have been trying to grow my hair for a while now, but it just doesnít seem to be growing. I have been having extensions for the last 2 years and it is getting to expensive to keep having them. Have you got any tips for me to do to try and make it grow? Or maybe were I could get some extensions from?

Diane ShawAnswered By:

I would recommend you introduce some vitamins and minerals in your diet to help encourage your hair follicles and the growth cycle. The B Vitamins can be very simulative. You will need to be a little dedicated and wait to see a positive effect taking shape after about 9 months. It would seem as if you have very fine hair and perhaps the hair extension technique you are using is too heavy for your hair roots. Perhaps you could try another technique such as the integrated weave which offers even distribution and I have seen very positive effects with clients achieving positive hair growth.
