  • What is the best haircut for glasses? Hi, I'm Italian woman, so please apologize me for all grammar mistakes. I'm 45 years old, I have a diamond face and I wear glasses. The frame is little and neutral. What haircut is the best for me? I have thin blonde hair and my hair are naturally very straight. My hair are like "spaghetti". I would like to have a haircut easy but nice. Thank you so much!

    Question from: Anna // Added: 23th May 2013

  • Hi, I am from a small town and the hairstylists I have worked with here don't really like their job and it shows, therefore I would like a professional's opinion. If you can access my fav's could you give me some advice on which hairstyle I should go with? Right now I have very long hair, past the middle of my back. My hair is VERY thick and I have it colored dark brown but I am more comfortable as, and have always been a blond. My friend told me I should go the darker route (Kim Kardashian style) and told me I shouldn't cut my hair cause it's "so pretty". But my parents have been telling me to chop it for a long time. I will admit I am scared to chop it, when I have a good hair day I will admit it's my best feature (I am not a confident person since I gained weight from having kids). I used to be skinny and hope to be again soon! I am on my way as I have lost a lot of weight and intend to lose more. I need to lose about 35 more pounds to be where I was before I became pregnant. I want my confidence back, but I am very ready for a new look, not to mention I hardly ever want to do my hair with it this long as it gets very tangled and they are hard to get out. So I am looking to cut it, just need some good advice on how short to go and maybe what color. I would LOVE to go SHORT and make things so much easier but not sure how good I look in a short cut like a pixie or a shorter bob. I think my nose is big even though I have been told it's not. I have been told my eyes are my best feature and I think my face is oval. Let me know what you think and thanks much for your time! :)

    Hi, thanks for your question. I have viewed your favorites and think if you want to go shorter, do it gradually. You can keep the long length you have but add layers all through the sides and back to give it shape. If you think that length needs to go a bit higher, than you can do so slowly. Your face shape suits most hairstyles so also try bangs that you can wear to soften the face. This way, you won't be cutting all your locks off in the one go. Also with color, after viewing the favorites you have saved, brown tones seem to work with your skin more. If you want to try something different without going back to your previous blonde, try adding in subtle highlights or 2 different tones of highlights to give your over-all style contrast. I hope this advice helps! Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: Melody // Added: 26th April 2013

  • Hello, I was wondering which one of the styles in my favorites is the best for me . There are a lot of styles that I tried on and I like but U want to get the BEST haircut lol please help!!!!!

    Hi, hairstyles 8 & 9 in the favorites (Ciara and Noureen DeWulf) are best suited for you. Because of your narrow jaw-line, hairstyles with the layers cut around the chin area will help complement your face and balance out the shape. Also, both hair colors will be easier to maintain and roots will be less noticeable, therefore less color work every few weeks, and less chemical damage to your hair. This will allow your hairstyle to look and feel healthier for longer. I hope I've helped! Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: Kelechi // Added: 17th February 2013

  • I have long hair with short cut on top and would like a different style but I want to keep my length. Can you help me with a new style? It is currently straight but I have an appointment to get a perm this week but want to get a different cut also.

    Hi Debbie, there are 4 main ways of changing your hairstyle. 1) Change the shape with shorter or longer layers throughout. 2) Change the length by cutting it shorter or growing it longer. 3) Change the color to something different, partially or all over. And 4) change the texture from straight to curls or the other way around. So you are doing the last one already, good! Now you should talk with your stylist and see what they can do about changing the shape (layers) while leaving the length. Remember, this new look must suit your face shape, lifestyle, and hair type too! So get talking with your hairstylist ASAP! Kind regards, THS Hair Consultant.

  • Hello, my face is round so what's the perfect cut for me? Thank you.

    Hi, the following link will help you find the perfect hairstyle to suit your face shape. http://www.thehairstyler.com/features/articles/hairstyles/the-right-hairstyle-for-your-round-face-shape. Kind regards, THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: haneen // Added: 20th October 2009

  • Hi, I'm a male who has been looking for the right hair style/cut for a long time. I've just been growing my hair out in frustration, so I have long hair down to the back of my neck. My hair is very wavy/curly so I've been using a hair straightener to at least keep it in shape. The shape of my face is kinda round and a little oval I think, and my face is a little chubby. I wouldn't mind any hair cut or style as long as it suits me and my face shape. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank You!

    Hi, to find a hairstyle that will suit your face shape take a look at our hair consultation (http://www.thehairstyler.com/hair-consultation). It will suggest a range of hairstyles which you can try on using your photo to see if they suit. Generally, if your face is round you should aim for hairstyles that add a little length to the appearance of your face and reduce width. Kind regards, THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: fender_86 // Added: 07th December 2009

  • I live in Miami, surrounded by constant humidity. I have black medium length wavy thick hair. HORRIBLE! I have a round face, and a small neck. What haircut style fits me best to help me with my surroundings as well?

    Hi, this article http://www.thehairstyler.com/features/articles/hairstyles/the-right-hairstyle-for-your-round-face-shape will give you ideas on what is best for your face shape. I would also suggest you visit a salon so they can assess your hair and give you the best options in regards to styles and hair products that are best suited for your hair type and a humid environment. Kind regards, THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: Daniela // Added: 14th December 2009

  • Hi! I am currently in a debate with myself when it comes to cutting my long, wavy, thick hair into layers. My main concern is asking the stylist to cut my hair in a particular style. The style that I am gravitating to is this: http://www.thehairstyler.com/hairstyles/formal/long/wavy/paula-abdul I don't have a side or back picture of this style, and I would like to know in general, would this be a problem for my stylist? Thank you! P.S: Does hair cut better when it is wet or dry. Double thank you!

    Hi, that cut shouldn't be a problem as the long layers are cut evenly all through the back and the sides. But remember, cutting long layers into your locks does not mean it will sit as pictured. That particular hairstyle requires styling time and products to look the way it does. In regards to your other question, hair should always be cut wet when using scissors. Only clipper cuts can be cut on dry hair. I hope I've helped! Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: lynncandy // Added: 07th December 2012

  • Currently, my hair length is a couple inches past my shoulders, I have thick brown hair, naturally a bit wavy. I am looking to cut my hair very short, hoping something like the hairstyle Ginnifer Goodwin has right now. I have a round face similar to hers, I am also half-Filipino with a tan/olive complexion. What are your thoughts? Thank you.

    Hi, I would suggest that you try the Ginnifer Goodwin hairstyles (http://www.thehairstyler.com/celebrity-hairstyles/ginnifer-goodwin) that we have available on in the virtual hairstyler and see if you like the way they look on your photo. It will at least give you an idea of how you may look with the style. Ginnifer's short styles are suitable for round faces, and naturally straight hair. If your hair does have a bit of a wave to it then you may need to factor in some styling time when considering any of her looks. Good luck! Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: user-1729509 // Added: 03th December 2012

  • Hi, I would like to have a suggestion for a nice, short (but won't go way above the chin), edgy hairstyle (I'd say something close to emo hairstyles). Actually, I just want to see lots of big layers on my hair with side bangs. I'm an Asian, my current hair is shoulder length. I'm a bit confused with my face shape...not sure if it's square or triangular, short neck, (slightly) protruding ears, small and narrow eyes, I often get a comment from other people that my face is small, yet I feel like my head is big/wide, my hair is fine and sparse, and straight, so straight it's flat on my head and although it's fine and sparse, it feels heavy like the gravity is always pulling my hair down, giving me a really hard time to style it so it would have an illusion of volume. I liked this one as suggested on your site, but not sure if my hair can handle it: http://tinyurl.com/8gqjrps What do you think?

    Hi, if you're unsure about the type of hairstyle to try then I recommend giving our Find My Perfect Hairstyle consultation a go. It can be found at this link: http://www.thehairstyler.com/hair-consultation and will ask you questions based on your own personal attributes to help work out what is the right style for you.

    Question from: Ardie // Added: 10th October 2012

  • I am a plus size girl with very fair skin and blue eyes. I have tried every hair color from blond to red and all in between with various highlights. My most successful cut was an inverted bob, which I wore in differing lengths for over 10 years. I loved it, but was missing my longer hair and my hubby was growing tired of the long/short look as well. So, it has now grown out past my shoulders, but is so fine and thin it is just a flat mess most of the time. I usually wind up with it in a ponytail before lunch time! Styling time is getting longer too! I feel the need to simplify my routine! I want to get it cut.... possibly even pretty short. Think Lisa Rinna, but shorter in back, but I am so scared! I don't want to make my chubby round face look ANY chubbier! Any suggestions would be great!

    Hi, if you're unsure about the type of hairstyle to try then I recommend giving our Find My Perfect Hairstyle consultation a go. It can be found at this link: http://www.thehairstyler.com/hair-consultation and will ask you questions based on your own personal attributes to help work out what is the right style for you.

    Question from: Tonya // Added: 12th August 2012

  • Hi, can you help me determine my face shape? I think my face length = width + 0.4 of the width. I'm not sure if it's oval or oblong. Also, can you recommend a good short/medium haircut that flatters my face shape? Thank you so much for your help. Have a nice day!

    Hi, using our face shape quiz (http://www.thehairstyler.com/features/articles/hairstyles/face-shape-quiz) and what you've provided, your face shape is oval. See the results here: http://www.thehairstyler.com/features/articles/hairstyles/oval-face-shape-characteristics.

    Question from: Iruna // Added: 04th July 2012

  • Hi. I am looking for a new cut/style for my hair. Currently it is permed and usually parted right down the middle, a little longer than shoulder length, one length with the exception of a little layer. It is thin & fine. I have a large nose so I do not like short hair and do not wear my hair up unless I am home. I am also tall, long face, mid 30s and thin. I need something easy that can be styled in a matter of minutes. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thank you.

    Hi, I recommend giving our Find My Perfect Hairstyle consultation a go. It can be found at this link: http://www.thehairstyler.com/hair-consultation and will ask about the texture of your hair, if you have any chemical processes in it, what your current length is, what length you'd like and if you have features such as a large nose. When all of your info has been entered, it will then give you hairstyle ideas. I hope it helps! Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.

    Question from: Majken // Added: 27th May 2012

  • Hello, I have an appointment to get my haircut on Saturday and I'm trying to decide on whether or not I should get bangs. I've wanted to try the side-swept bang look for a while now, however, my hair elasticity is wavy. I think getting bangs would compensate for my long forehead and I know how to control my hair's waviness, but I'm concerned that if I get bangs, I'll regret it because they'll curl up and be difficult to handle.What would you suggest I do in this situation? Thanks! :-)

    Hi, thank you for your enquiry. First, to see if bangs will suit you, I suggest finding a hairstyle with the bangs you like and trying it on your photo. This will give you an idea of how you may look with bangs and can sometimes be enough to make the decision for you. Second, understand that bangs can take work, especially for those with wavy hair. You will most likely need to straighten your bangs everyday or every second day depending on the strength of your wave in order to have your bangs sit properly. If you are willing to put in the styling effort required for bangs and like the way they look on your photo, then they are a great option to try. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: Brooke // Added: 12th April 2012

  • Hi, I'm planning on getting a haircut this weekend and I want to change my style a little bit, but I'm having trouble finding a style that will look good on me. I have dark brown wavy hair that's long, an oval face shape, and a somewhat-long forehead. I want to keep my hair long, and I've thought about getting bangs. I always get my hair feathered so it frames my face and I part it on the side, but I've found that the shorter sections of my hair get in my face a lot when I get it cut this way. I'm afraid though, that if I get the shorter sections cut to make side-swept bangs, they'll curl up and be difficult to control. Any suggestions? All help is appreciated :-)

    Hi, if you're unsure about the type of hairstyle to try then I recommend giving our Find My Perfect Hairstyle consultation a go. It can be found at this link: http://www.thehairstyler.com/hair-consultation and will ask you questions based on your own personal attributes to help work out what is the right style for you.

    Question from: Brooke // Added: 11th April 2012

  • I have a normal face but a slightly pointy chin, and big eyes. I don't have a high forehead though. My hair is wavy and it looks horrible short, I'm trying to grow it out again. Should I get bangs? The kind I want are longish ones (google "fauxlivia").

    Hi, the type of bangs that you want will require you to straighten your wavy hair everyday, so you must keep that in mind when considering bangs. To know if the bangs will suit you, I suggest trying on a hairstyle that features similar bangs to see if you like how they look on you. Hannah Simone has long full bangs: http://www.thehairstyler.com/celebrity-hairstyles/hannah-simone, as do many of our other celebrity hairstyle options. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: sugartherat // Added: 31th March 2012

  • I really like this hairstyle that I found. You used to give the cutting instructions, but I don't see them listed anywhere now. Can you give me the details of how to achieve this cut. I have it saved as a favorite so you will know what cut I'm referring to. Thanks, Christina.

    Hi Christina, all of our styles come with styling steps and a hairstyle description which lets you know info about the particular cut. We've always provided this type of information (sorry, we have never provided actual cutting instructions as haircuts should always be performed by a professional), and you will be able to find this information in the Virtual Hairstyler. Just simply load the hairstyle that you like and then move your mouse over your photo. The control panel will then appear below your photo and you can click on the "Style Guide" to get the styling steps and the hair icon to get the hairstyle information. Kind regards, Katie Summers - THS Customer Support.


    Question from: Christina // Added: 27th February 2012

  • Hi - I am 58 and I used to have fine hair but full looking, but now it is getting finer and thinner as I age. What cut is best for this type of hair. I have a square face and right now my hair is chin length but needs to be cut shorter because it looks thin and stringy. What kind of cut do I need to make it fuller? I used to get my hair textured a little to make it fuller but it is so fine now I don't think that kind of cut would be right. Am I correct in saying this? Also, I have a side bang not full across.

    Hi, with a square face shape, any haircut that you get will still need to be one the softens around the sides of the face so not to enhance the "squareness". A short to medium hairstyle with layers will help give the illusion of thicker hair but this will depend on how the hair is styled. Keep the side bangs or a side part as this will help compliment your face. Blow-waving the hair to add volume or using hot rollers will boost fine hair, just remember when styling to use light products (e.g hairspray) so that you don't weigh your hair down. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: Valerie // Added: 15th November 2011

  • Hello, can you take a look at my picture? I'm not sure what kind of face I have oval or the other? Also I was looking through the pictures but I only added the one I could find on my computer which isn't that great. Hopefully I can take a better one soon. But my question is what is a good haircut for me? Every time I go get my haircut I end up thinking it's bad. I want a haircut that suits me with my "wavy hair" and a short haircut because I have rather large ears! I'm 16 with reddish/brown hair.

    Hi, if you're confused about your face shape then I recommend taking our easy face shape quiz at this link: http://www.thehairstyler.com/features/articles/hairstyles/face-shape-quiz. It will ask the questions about your face that only you can answer to help work out what is the correct shape. After you've done the face shape quiz, try our hair consultation. It will allow you to choose your face shape, hair type, length etc and then recommend styles that will work for you: http://www.thehairstyler.com/hair-consultation Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.

  • My daughter's photo is uploaded and she is looking for a shoulder length haircut that will look good on her. Something different and trendy. Have any suggestions?

    Hi, if you're after a certain hair length, I suggest giving our hair consultation a try. You can add your daughter's specific features and then the length of cut that she wants and it will recommend styles from our range: http://www.thehairstyler.com/hair-consultation.

    Question from: Deborah // Added: 09th October 2011

  • I would like someone to look at my picture and tell me for sure if my face is oblong, oval or round. I think it is oblong but want to make sure. I would like to cut my hair short but I am over 50 and some of the hairdo's that I fit to my face are way too young and punk'd. So I am disappointed in my choices to compare with on this website. Anyways, what short to medium haircuts are best for my face shape, being over 50, straight hair?

    Hi, I have taken a look at your photo and believe, due to the length of your face, that the shape is oblong. To find hairstyles that will suit your face shape, age and length etc, please try our hair consultation again using oblong as your face shape, and remember that even though the styles may look like they suit a younger crowd, you can still take them to your hairdresser and ask her to tailor the idea and basic look and structure of the style to suit you. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: Sonja // Added: 04th September 2011

  • I have found a couple of styles that I like. How can I tell my hairdresser how to cut it in the style I choose? Do you have instuctions on this site that aids hairdressers for particular styles?

    Hi, the hairstyle info listed with each style includes information that any hairdresser will find helpful. Also, taking a printed picture of the style that you want (just use the print function available) will allow your hairdresser to see the exact type and style of the cut that you choose so that they can re-create it for you. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.

  • Hello! I'm 12 years old and I want a Justin Bieber haircut: http://www.thehairstyler.com/mens-hairstyles/casual/short/straight/uniform-layered-hairstyle. What do I have to tell my hairstylist to get that haircut? I'm too shy to tell my hairstylist that I want the JB haircut. Please help me! Marko.

    Hi Marko, the best way to let your hairstylist know what style you want is to print out the picture using our print function and take it with you when you go to the salon. That way your hairdresser will know exactly what you want!


    Question from: Marko // Added: 10th January 2011

  • Hello, I haven't cut my hair in almost 15 years. I am 47 and finally want a change. I have extremely thick course hair that is actually kinky wavy at the very top of my head, but gets looser as it gets closer toward the ends. When my hair is wet, it looks like I would have really pretty curls, but when my hair dries, it looks frizzy and unruly, so I always just pull it back in a barrette to get it off my face. I don't comb it or it would really get poofy. Right now it is 2 inches below my shoulder so the waves are more stretched out. I have a heart shaped face with a wide nose and pale complexion. I found a couple of medium short haircuts that kind of look like a shag I like in your virtual hairstyle section, but am afraid my hair will be really crazy out of control if I cut it into short layers since my waves are kinky tight at the top. I am tired of looking like I am in grade school. Any suggestions.

    Hi, I'm glad to hear that you have found some hairstyles that you like with our Virtual Hairstyler and can understand your hesitance about knowing whether or not cutting your hair will help or hinder your curls. The truth is, without being able to see your curls in person, I can't give a definite answer either way so I suggest that you take the styles that you have found to your hairdresser and ask them to asses the haircuts and advise you whether or not they will work with your curls. Curls can be both a blessing and a curse, and no matter the type of hair cut or your hair length, will require you to put in some effort in regards to styling and using styling products if you wish to have a hairstyle that looks great and eliminates the puffiness. I hope I've helped. Good luck!

  • Is there a short hair style that will look good on me?! I'm a female that's looking for sort of a boyish haircut. I'd like to cut it real short but am not sure what will look good. I have a round face and am sick of the everyday ponytail. Please help.

    Hi, for your round face shape, a short hairstyle with plenty of height through the crown will compliment your face, giving the illusion of a longer face shape. Remember, round face shapes need to add height not width so stay clear of hairstyles with layers that flick out. I hope I have helped with your question. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: kati // Added: 07th March 2010

  • Hi. I am a 44 yo female with long, dark brown, wavy to curly hair. Although my hair is fine, I have a lot of it! I have never had bangs in my entire life and recently bought some clip in bangs to see what I would look like. I really like the look (I looked much younger!), but the clip-ins are a bit too heavy for my face. I am thinking of having my stylist cut long side swept bangs, but due to a strong cowlick in the front, I'm concerned they won't lay correctly. I live in a dry climate and have great success with my Sedu flatiron when I want to go sleek, so I think I can style the bangs how I want them, but I'm a bit nervous. Question 1: should I give them a try? Question 2: if yes, how should I have them cut? Question 3: how long would they take to grow out if I didn't like them? Thanks much! Alex

    Hi Alex, in regards to having bangs cut, you will need to understand that with a strong cowlick in the front, you will definitely have problems trying to get it sitting right. Also remember that the shorter you go, the less weight there is so the more problems you will have with it. If you do decide to have them cut then you also need to realize that if you want to grow them back out, you might be waiting a while as hair grows approximately half an inch every month. I would strongly suggest you make an appointment with a hairstylist so they can assess your hair personally and give you a more accurate opinion. I hope I have helped. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.

  • Hi, I have long, black, curly hair. I would like to makeover my hair. I have a heart shaped face. My skin color is brown. I would like to have straight hair but I'm not sure it would suit my image. Any help?

    Hi, if you're not sure where to start with a new look then I would recommend using our hair consultation. It will allow you to choose all of your personal attributes (such as your face shape, skin color, hair color, hair length, hair texture etc) and then see styles that will suit those attributes. You can then try those recommended styles on your photo to see if it will suit you. The hair consultation can be found in the makeover menu at the top of this page.

  • Hi! My mom has some white hair and she wants to color them with dark brown. How should she color it?

    Hi, there are lots of hair coloring products on the market designed to cover grays that can give you good results. If in doubt, have your Mom visit a hairstylist who can personally take a look at the level of gray hairs and advise the best course of action. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.

  • I recently tried a bob and liked it. It's chin length and only slightly layered. I have an oval face with a high forehead and naturally wavy, thick-ish hair. I don't want to have to straighten it every day - I would prefer to scrunch it and bring out its natural texture. Right now, my hair looks heavy and lacks movement if it's not straightened. I want to change things for my next haircut. I still want a bob but I can't decide which bob variation to go with. What would you suggest for someone who wants a trendy and modern bob that works with wavy hair, yet can still be straightened occasionally? Thanks.

    Hi, your oval face shape will suit any bob cut, whether it has layers or not, so I would suggest you sit down with your hairstylist at your next salon visit for a thorough consultation to see which cut will work best for you. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.

  • Hey! I'm 17, I have long and wavy hair and I would love to cut it short (a little above the shoulders) but since my hair is so thin I don't know if it would look good. Should I cut it?

    Hi, if you're not sure about how you'd look with a shorter haircut then I recommend adding your photo (if you haven't already) to our Virtual Hairstyler and trying on some of the shorter styles in our wavy category. As for knowing if a shorter cut will work with your hair type, I'd advise seeing a hairstylist in person so that they can look at the texture and the thickness of your hair in person and offer the right advice. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.

  • Hi, I'm having a tough time finding a style that looks good on myself. I have dark brown long hair with thin side swept bangs. I have an oval shape face with high cheek bones. My face isn't too skinny it is more on the chunkier side. What would be a good haircut for me? Thank you so much.

    Hi, the following article has some great advice about what will suit an oval face shape: http://www.thehairstyler.com/features/articles/hairstyles/the-right-hairstyle-for-your-oval-face-shape. If you're still stuck for ideas then our hair consultation (http://www.thehairstyler.com/hair-consultations) will also give you all the styles in our library based on your own personal attributes, such as your current hair condition, type and texture and your face shape and complexion. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: nykki319 // Added: 26th December 2009

  • Hello! I'm going to get a new haircut and have problems choosing one that would actually suit my face. I think my face shape is heart, I have big forehead and small chin. Trouble is, I also have really big nose (really, it's prominent). Right now my hair is long, natural color (mocha brown), to me it seems thin. I have trouble styling - it just falls limp or slips away. I have a side part, but not too deep. Everyone tells me different things about haircuts and hairstyles that make nose seem smaller: some say big bangs, some say absolutely no bangs... I can't keep my hair off my face, I have too big a forehead for that. Is there any haircut/hairstyle that would make my nose look smaller and give some life to my flat hair?

    Hi, our hair consultation will offer advice on styles for flattering a larger nose as well as advice or what will suit your face shape and the thickness of your hair. You can find the hair consultation in the makeover menu at the top of this page, or at this link: http://www.thehairstyler.com/hair-consultations. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.

  • Should I get an asymmetrical haircut? What would be the impact on my current grooming schedule?

    Hi, without knowing your hair type, texture, length and face shape it's hard to advise if an asymmetrical haircut will suit you. As for grooming, this again depends on the length of your asymmetrical haircut and how you wish to have it styled. I recommend having a chat with a hairstylist in person to find out if an asymmetrical haircut is the right style for you, and what the maintenance level would be. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: changed // Added: 21th December 2009

  • Hi. I have an oval shaped face, medium texture hair, long and curly. I had the Brazilian keratin put in my hair over a year ago. I would like to have bangs but don't know where or how to begin looking. I want medium, maybe short hair. I am also looking for a maintenance free haircut because I will be overseas next year due to being in the military. Any help would be good. I am also thinking of putting in the Brazilian keratin again. Thank you.

    Hi Desiri, I would suggest trying our hair consultation (http://www.thehairstyler.com/hair-consultations) to find styles based on your personal attributes (face shape, hair length, hair type etc) and to find styles that have the criteria that you have listed (medium or short length, bangs etc). Once you've found some styles that you like, make an appointment with your hairdresser so they can assess your hair on a personal level and give you advice about which options will benefit you and your hair. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.

  • Hi there! I have long, fine, straight hair and not a lot of it, and every time I go to the hairdresser they insist on layering it so that it has more volume and bounce! The only trouble is that my hair is naturally sleek and straight so the bounce goes right out of my hair the minute I walk out of the salon. What I would like to know is this: would it be better to cut my hair straight across without layering it? Or do layers serve a greater purpose other than to add volume? I've resigned myself to the fact that my hair will never have volume, so I'd like to go for the straight, sleek look. Thank you!

    Hi, having layers does not mean your hair will sit perfectly with shape and volume when you wake up in the morning. With your hair being fine and sleek, you have to be willing to work with your hair and spend time styling to have it sit the way you want it to. Applying volumizing products and blow-drying the hair will help achieve body. Using hot rollers or velcro rollers will also create the bounce and body you seek. So if you have the time to dress you locks, keep your layers and have fun with them. If not, then a blunt cut with no layers will give you a straight, sleek look. I hope I have helped. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: Jess // Added: 25th November 2009

  • I have wavy texture medium length hair. My face shape is oblong. The hairdresser cut my hair with layers at the top and I want to have a new hairstyle. Could you tell me some tips on how to style my hair? And I would like to know will straight cut bangs suit me?

    Hi, this article will give you tips on finding the right "wavy hairstyle" for your face shape. http://www.thehairstyler.com/features/articles/hairstyles/easy-wavy-hairstyles-for-your-face-shape. In regards to bangs, straight cut ones will suit an oblong face shape. If you haven't already, upload your photo to the Virtual Hairstyler and try on some hairstyles with bangs to see if you like the look. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: pricilia // Added: 17th November 2009

  • I have thick hair and my hairdresser always thins it out when styling it, but that only lasts a few days - weeks at tops - and I cannot afford to go every week. I always see products for thickening hair but never any for thinning. What can I do? I need to look smart for work but cannot spend hours blow-drying and styling my hair as I have two small children to sort out in the mornings.

    Hi, it is impossible for your hair to grow out only a few days after being thinned so it sounds to me that when your hairstylist styles your hair, it is smoother than when you do it and makes your hair seem thinner. Unfortunately there is no shampoo that will make your hair thinner. Do you have a straightening iron? If you do, running it through your locks every few days will help to smooth your hair out and shouldn't take too long when your hair is dry and can even be done at night as it will stay straight while you sleep and leave you with more time to get ready in the morning! Kind regards, Sarah Koessler - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: sui-zhen // Added: 03th August 2009

  • What is the difference between the razor and thinning scissors (with the jagged teeth)? My hair is thin, however the density is medium. Should a hairdresser ever use thinning scissors on my hair? Would it be recommended to get a razor cut to add texture to a cut, rather than the thinning scissors on my hair type? Kyoko

    Hi Kyoko, for your hair type I definitely wouldn't use the thinning scissors as they will purely thin your hair out (as the name suggests). Instead, I would recommend asking your hairdresser to use a razor as it will definitely add texture to your hair type. I hope I have helped. Kind regards, Sarah Koessler - THS Hair Consultant.
