TA asks:
I have been on steroids for 18 months and my face shape has changed its very fat and round I have short hair but what style would help me?

We need to look at whether the drug regimen you are on at the moment is going to be long term, permanent, or just temporary? It would seem for your pre-steroid face shape, short sassy looks worked very well; you may only need to adapt this for your current situation. For instance, getting your hairstylist to bring the shape closer on the side may help define the shape more? Alternatively, some rounder face shapes benefit from growing the hair a little and bringing it softly onto the face to take the fullness away and elongate the shape. Whatever you do, remember hair is the one accessory you carry with you every day and can afford to change around according to your mood so have fun with it and good luck with your treatments.





Pam asks:
I have an oblong face, and am a little bit chubby round the cheeks, but everything else is fine. I also have straight dark brown hair. > What sort of hairstyle would suit me the most?

If you are seeing yourself with an ’oblong face’; it normally points to a longer shape to your face. Although you have some chubbiness around the cheeks; this will not tend to ’round the face out, so over all you want to avoid shapes that will draw on your features and accentuate length. If you are wearing your hair straight avoid gong too long on the sides and front, as this will only draw down on your face. Some longer layer for movement could be just what you’re looking for. As for the color; not knowing your skin tone, eye colour etc; I would suggest a consultation with a local professional that you feel comfortable with; they can give you incite as to why certain colours will work for you best.







Laura asks:
I am a 37 year old woman going on 30 and have 60% grey/salt pepper hair to scared to get it dyed professionally and don’t know what colour to go for my hair is really short, also what is the best kind of shampoo/conditioner to use I currently use Head and Shoulders.

First of all I’m glad you know that your chronological age has nothing to do with how you feel! If your hair is already at 60% grey your original base colour will be less of an influence on your colour choices. If you are worried about complete change; you may want to start with subtle hi-lights in you hair that can blend with your natural colours, yet still liven your short cut up. When you are ready for a stronger change get some professional help on what colours work with your skin tone and go for it! Always remember a color change (like changing your clothes) needs to be an overall feeling; so your make up and accessories should be telling the same story to complete your new look.

As for shampoo and conditioner; remember your grey hair will normally get dryer as time goes on and often has a courser nature. I would suggest Senscience Silk Moisture as a great long term shampoo and conditioner to allow the right amount of moisture for your shorter look whilst helping the various textures in your hair to stay healthy and lush.
