Tags: hairstyle hair texture hair length

  • Hi Hairstyler, I wear glasses all the time, and I have just purchased a new pair of glasses. Now I'm ready for a new hair cut. But my hairdresser has recently retired. I have medium length brown (with some gray) wavy thin hair, with gold and red highlights. I have a small oval face, and I'm 5'7" tall. The waves come out when my hair is short. I want a feminine look that is easy to manage and requires minimal upkeep. I wash my hair once a week or so, but rinse it well and condition every day to keep down the frizz. I'm looking for a good style to show a new hair dresser. Do you have a suggestion? Julianah p.s. I don't have a picture of myself wearing my new glasses yet, but I'll work on making one so you can see.

    Hi Julianah, 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, such as your hair type, what kind of style you want, and if you wear glasses, to help work out what is the right style for you. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: Julia // Added: 09th July 2014

  • Hi, could you please suggest me some hairstyles based on my photo? Tried the virtual hairstyler, however for some reason just can't find any appropriate ones or they just don't seem to fit on my face. The only prerequisite - it should be formal. Also, could you please specify what are my face characteristics (like face shape, etc.). I am not entirely sure on this, being honest. Thanks for your help in advance, G.

    Question from: patricia // Added: 11th March 2013

  • Hi there, just wondering what style would suit long hair with a round face shape? Thanks!

    Hi Gabriella, that's a good question and a very important one for anybody considering any hairstyle change. Face shape consideration is so important when changing or selecting a new hairstyle. I wrote an article about all 7 face shapes and what suits them in various lengths. http://www.thehairstyler.com/features/articles/hairstyles/the-right-hairstyle-for-your-round-face-shape. Give this article a read, and you will see that there are some things you need to do to get it right for your round face shape. Kind regards, THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: gabriella // Added: 31th July 2009

  • Hello. I just want to know if it's a good idea to get a haircut and/or hairstyle like scene hair. I have curly hair, naturally. So I love how scene hair looks on my friends, that's why I wanna know if its a good idea.

    Hello, well scene hair can be anything that's a little different, unusual, light and dark and emo looking. So this is more about a change in attitude from your end, how you feel about looking a little different and people seeing you that way. You are obviously not sure, so why not try uploading your photo and trying on our alternative wavy and curly looks for a visual reality check? Something else you could do is change how you style your hair. Make it messy, a little in your face and scene looking, by teasing and combing it out and using styling products like spray gel and wax. Then if you start to get into the "groove," you can consider color and hair cutting changes like eye-level bangs and unusual shapes that accentuate the look. I recommend leaving the cutting until last, because it's not reversible like simple styling changes. Have a go! It could be fun. Kind regards, THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: kathy // Added: 19th August 2009

  • Hello, I'd like to know how can I make my hair like this: http://www.vna2z.com/data/media/13/Dan%20Truong%2001.jpg. http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/nminhlaidt/2006/IMG_2576.jpg. I am willing to pay too.

    Hi, the hairstyle that you want to achieve is known as a wedge cut, where the back is cut short and tapered up to just below the ears. Then it becomes almost all one length from the top. The sides are cut short just above the ears (almost under cut) and then left all one length too. If you were to comb it forward and down you could say it was like a bowl-cut, but with shape and graduated layers. I recommend taking this picture to your hairstylist, and also trying it on using your photo http://www.thehairstyler.com/celebrity-hairstyles/hugh-grant. His hair is wavy, but straight hair will sit the way you want. Also, you will need to have long layers on top to achieve this look. Kind regards, THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: duydaniel // Added: 25th August 2009

  • Hi my name is Kelvin. I have a diamond face shape. I want to ask whether I suit the Mohawk hairstyle or the Mullet hairstyle?

    Hi Kelvin, if your face shape is diamond it means that it's long with a pointed chin - but with wide cheekbones. It's best to avoid hairstyles like a Mohawk because the height on top will make you face look longer. Instead, a trendy looking Mullet will add some width to the sides, therefore suiting your face shape better! Kind regards, THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: kelvin // Added: 01th September 2009

  • How do I determine the texture of my hair? Recently I had my hair cut and styled and the hairdresser said that I have coarse hair. That was a first. All others have said that my hair (strands) are fine and the density is thick. It had been about 3 or 4 years since I had my hair cut by a professional. Could the texture have changed? The reason I ask is because I decided it was time for a makeover so I went from long straight natural brown, grey mixture to a chin length bob and colored it dark auburn with dark brown highlights. I'm very happy with it and want to take care of it with the proper products and styling procedures. I know I have thick (per square inch) hair but am stumped on the texture. This makes a big difference when it comes time to purchase hair care products. I've been doing research on this because I want the best results. Thank you for your time and interest, Liz.

    Hi Liz, as I cannot see your hair texture up close, I recommend taking a look at our hair texture and elasticity article to help you determine your hair texture. http://www.thehairstyler.com/features/articles/hairstyles/free-consultation-know-your-hair-texture-and-elasticity. Kind regards, THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: emlees // Added: 05th October 2009

  • Hello. I have relaxed hair and I am in the process of transitioning to my natural African hair (it's not that coarse). At this point, I am loosing my front hair line so that's why I am going back to natural, then I want to interlock them to grow locks. Is it a good idea for me? Is there a product you can recommend for my front hair and to make my hair thicker? Please help. Thanks.

    Hi Andrea, firstly are you loosing your front hairline because of the hair straightening? If the answer is yes, then this breakage should stop once your stop applying the harsh straightening chemicals to your hair. Breakage can occur for lots of reasons such as incorrect, harsh, or straightening products that are too strong for your hair type, and for other reasons such as bad application or processing. Whatever the reason, you should definitely stop using chemicals and let your hair grow back naturally. Now a good balanced Shampoo and Conditioner should be used to keep your hair in optimum condition, along with lots of massaging on your scalp to keep the blood circulating to the hair follicle. Vitamins such as Fish Oil have also been known to work for thinning hair. Good Luck! Kind regards, THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: Andrea // Added: 08th October 2009

  • I'm not sure what type hairstyle and hair color suits me. Right now my hair is straight-ish, medium length and medium/thin thickness with very short layers. I also have a long shaped fringe that I can tuck behind my ears. My (natural) hair color is light brown - dark blond. My face is round, my cheeks are very chubby and pink. I want a completely different look, one that really suits me and is casual yet stylish, cause the hairstyle I have now doesn't suit me at all. Plz help?

    Hi Jessica, well where do I start? What you need to do is our online consultation, http://www.thehairstyler.com/hair-consultation here you will find lots and lots of hairstyles based on your own personal attributes (face shape, hair type, desired length, complexion color, maintenance ability, and much more) to evaluate and consider. There is also information about every style, and we even show you step by step how to style all of them. Give it a try, it works for thousands of people every day!

    Question from: jessica // Added: 16th October 2009

  • Is there a product to get curly/wavy hair without getting a perm that actually works?

    Hi, getting your hair to look curly works only if your hair has natural curls in it to start with. A product like mousse, spray gel, or liquid gel, or even some moisturizers, will all make naturally curly hair take its natural form and then dry that way. But, it's all useless if you don't have any waves or curls to begin with, or if your hair is not cut correctly to enhance and promote curls. An example is where shorter layers eliminate weight and add body and bounce to enhance curls. So you need to get your hair cut right to start with and then the right styling product to help you maintain it. A good hair stylist will be able to put you on the right path here. Good Luck! Kind regards, THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: fazrdr // Added: 17th October 2009

  • Hi, my hair has been thinning since high school (I'm 26 years old now). It has happened all over, but it is noticeable on my forehead sides. I have sparse hair around the sides on the top of my forehead now. I keep a short hairstyle now since it is less noticeable. I have no family history of female hair loss. What can I do to stop/slow hair loss? Will I keep losing hair until I'm bald? Will it ever grow back? What hairstyles are best? Any other suggestions would be great.

    Hi, I strongly suggest you make an appointment with a trichologist to examine your scalp thoroughly to assess the problem and its cause. This way, they will be able to give you an accurate solution. Kind regards, THS Hair Consultant.

  • I have a fat face and I want to cut my hair.

    Hi, if you're looking for a new hairstyle then I suggest trying our hair consultation: http://www.thehairstyler.com/hair-consultation. Kind regards, THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: rowa19 // Added: 13th November 2009

  • Hi, I am a 50 yr old overweight woman with a round fat face. What type of hairstyle would help make my face/body look a little thinner? Or is there such a cut? LOL.

    Hi, if you would like to minimize your build, don't choose a style like full high hair, as this will make you look even larger. Also, be particularly careful when choosing wavy or curly styles as they give the illusion of "BIG." Most short style cuts are fabulous for your frame, along with most straight smooth looks. It's really just a case of looking at things logically. I recommend adding your face shape and build to our hair consultation for further ideas: http://www.thehairstyler.com/hair-consultations. Kind regards, THS Hair Consultant.

    Hi Kevin, to find the perfect hair cut, add your details to our hair consultation. It'll give you hair cut ideas based on your own face shape, age, hair type, hair texture and hair length. It can be found in the makeover menu at the top of this page. Kind regards, THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: Kevin // Added: 10th March 2010

  • Hi! I have a question. I used to have good, thick and dense hair. But after chemical treatment when I was ill with Leukosis, my hair became very thin and sparse. Could you give me any advise to return my hair? Will it help if I shave my hair bald? I hope to receive your answer. Thank you.

    Hi, I wouldn't recommend shaving off your hair as this will not help your hair to grow back in a better condition. What I do suggest is taking care of your hair with good hair care products and implementing a healthy diet full of lots of good food and vegetables which will nourish your hair. Kind regards, THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: Inna // Added: 13th November 2009

  • I have an oval face, but I have also the aging chin and neck which I am trying NOT to accentuate. I would love to grow older gracefully. Probably I need to send a side picture for this question. I KNOW the best way for me to solve part of this issue is to loose weight, but at 60 I am not sure that will solve all of my problem. Is there a style that will "probably not camouflage my neck issue, but at least NOT accentuate it.

    Question from: Loretta // Added: 25th January 2013

  • I have uploaded my picture which is not very good. I need hair help. I have went to 4 hairstylists and no one will cut my hair short. I have thick, thick, thick hair. It is very smooth and will not hold any curl. I realize I have a short forehead and a round face. I always pull my hair back in a ponytail or behind my ears. I cannot stand it in my face. This is why I want it short. It will be out of the way and hopefully easier to style when I need to or at least will have style and I don't have to spend forever on it. I have looked at many hairstyles and can't find one that has all my hair types. Do you have any thoughts or ideas? I am lost and can't find any answers. Thank you. Beth.

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

  • I would like my hair curlier all over, but my stylist doesn't seem to have heard of root perms or stacked perms. Don't you approve of perms? Do you know of special perms like this?

    Hi, a root perm will only add volume to your hair so that your hair has more body and will only last as long as it takes for your root area to grow longer. If you want curly hair all over then you will need a traditional perm. Any type of perm will cause damage to your hair because of the chemicals involved, but if you are willing to accept this and to look after your hair with regular treatments then there's no reason why you can't enjoy a perm. If you feel that your hairdresser cannot give you the perm you wish then the best option is to find one that will. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: ALICE // Added: 09th November 2012

    Question from: user-1693043 // Added: 05th October 2012

  • When I wear my hair down in a middle, side or any part, my hair always falls into my face. How can I style it with a blow dryer or straightener to keep it away from my eyes?

    Hi, thank you for your question. If hair falling in your face is a problem then you'll need hairstyles that keep your hair strands out of your face. Pinning your hair back into a half up half down hairstyle or pulling it into a ponytail or bun are great options to consider. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: user-1661655 // Added: 01th September 2012

  • Hi, I'm a male and I have medium length curly hair. After showering and using my conditioner my curls are very nice, but after they dry up. My hair becomes more like a ball around my head and my curls join together and it does not look good. Any suggestions on how I can keep my curls just like after the shower?

    Hi, the best advice I can give about keeping the definition and condition of your curls is using the right products. You'll need a shampoo and conditioner for curly hair types and a curl enhancing product that can be applied to your hair after washing it to keep your curls in place. Hope this helps. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: Yousuf // Added: 20th August 2012

  • Hi, I have an oval face with a tan complexion, and just about shoulder length curly hair that is medium brown in color. I have been growing it out from a pixie type cut. I styled it straight every day in the past, but I live in a hot and humid area and usually before long it would end up half straight and half curly (not a good look). I would like to embrace some of the curliness - I lean towards liking the loose wave. If you could suggest some advice on a cut/style and maybe some good products, it would be great. I have tried many salons and have only found a few that could deal with my hair and see what it could be. I am desperate to have a somewhat easy and sexy style. Thank You! I don't mind doing a little work to get the style but really need it to basically stay the same throughout the day.

    Hi, I recommend using our Find My Perfect Hairstyle consultation to find wavy/curly hairstyles that will suit your current length and texture. It can be found at this link: http://www.thehairstyler.com/hair-consultation. In regards to hair products, as a hairstylist it is hard for me to correctly assess what will work for you without being able to view the texture, tone, elasticity and condition of your hair and other factors up close. If you've found salons that work for you, I would suggest going back and asking a hairstylist in person for advice on the best products for your hair. Thank you. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: cleighc // Added: 19th July 2012

  • Hi there! I have hair that is medium thick. I tend to roller set it over night, which results in tons of curl and width. I don't oppose curls but I am wondering if there are hair brushes that can turn tight curls into long waves? Do you know brushes that can do this, or can you point me in the right direction.

    Hi, thank you for your question. Any brush will turn curls into waves. Opt for natural bristles and use long even strokes from root to tip to get the best results. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: lynncandy // Added: 03th July 2012

  • Hi, I have found some gorgeous hairstyles, one in particular in makeovers, the bob with length in the front and bangs. I am a heart shaped face with long bra length wavy hair. I am thinking of cutting my hair for my son's wedding, which is in Fiji in September this year. Being a heart shaped face, should I have bangs or leave my fringe long swept to the side? I do have a small face and was wondering if having bangs would suit or not. I'm 50yrs old with light skin, light to medium brown hair (colored because I'm greying on top) and 5ft 2. Your advise would be very appreciated as I'm not sure which type of bob to go with. Kind regards, Debee4u :)

    Hi, bangs that suit a heart shaped face are long bangs with some height or long side-swept bangs. As for a bob, make sure it's either a chin length graduated bob or a texturized bob with volume. Stay away from a bob with blunt cut bangs or a slicked down bob as they will only work against your heart face shape. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.

    Question from: vivian-okonji // Added: 22th March 2012

  • Hi, I have a horrible crown at the back right side of my head. I have had many wild styles throughout my life. At the moment I have short spiky top with slightly longer back and sides hoping that it would hide my crown between the transition from short to long hair. This hasn't really worked though. I have straight black hair. Would textured layer, choppy layer or something else work for me please? Thank you.

    Hi, with stubborn crowns you can either have a very short hairstyle to blend in with the "whirl", or long hair with enough length to hold it down flat to the head. During the transition of growing it from short to long, you will go through a stage where it will be hard to manage, but you will have to make do and remember that this will only be temporary until your hair has enough length to weigh the crown down. Style your hair in the same direction that the crown grows to avoid the out-of-control look until it has enough length for the crown to sit flat, and avoid textured layers through the crown area as this will make it worse and harder to control. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.

    Question from: Christine // Added: 07th February 2012

  • Hi, I'm a male aged 24 and I am looking to get a new hairstyle. I have a longish face, I'd say it's oblong with a protruding nose and somewhat large ears. I have tried your virtual makeover section and like the Chace Crawford style it picked and also the Ricky Martin fauxhawk style. My main question is would a fauxhawk really suit a long face as I like the style but I'm not sure if I could pull it off. Could you please confirm my face shape and tell me what would suit me the best? Thank you.

    Hi, to answer your questions, your face is oblong (based on the images you provided) and the fauxhawk hairstyle will suit an oblong face shape. To help our members find the right look for them, all of our styles come with hairstyle info that lists which face shapes the hairstyle will work for. I recommend using this information when you're looking through our range of styles to choose the right option for you, and then trying the hairstyle on your photo as the final confirmation you need to know if the look is what you want. Thank you. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: james // Added: 05th February 2012

  • Hey, I was just wondering if you could help me with my face shape, and any clues on hairstyles to suit me? I think it's an oblong, but I have prominent cheekbones. I've already had a fringe with long sides and it's starting to bore me, so I'm looking for something a bit shorter as I get older. Thanks.

    Hi, the majority of your features actually lean more towards an oval face shape, which means that you have the potential to suit a lot of great hairstyles. To find out more about an oval face shape, take a look at the following link: http://www.thehairstyler.com/features/articles/hairstyles/oval-face-shape-characteristics. To then find styles that will suit you, I recommend using our hair consultation: http://www.thehairstyler.com/hair-consultation. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: Nathan // Added: 26th January 2012

  • Hi - I have a very oblong face with a long chin (a little too wide to be called "pointy" though). With such an angular face, I've struggled to find the right hairstyle to off-set or play down my long chin. I've seen the general advice about width in your hairstyle and avoiding volume on top, but do you have any suggestions for downplaying a long/prominent chin? Jeanne

    Hi, the following article outlines some ideas for short, mid-length and long hairstyles that will flatter a long face shape: http://www.thehairstyler.com/features/articles/hairstyles/hairstyles-oblong-face-shape-short-medium-long. As well as avoiding volume at the top of your head and adding width through the chin area, hairstyles that involve bangs can also help. If you haven't already done so, I also recommend using our hair consultation to find looks that match your facial characteristics (http://www.thehairstyler.com/hair-consultation) or typing the word "oblong" into our search feature to see just the hairstyles in our range that are suited to your face shape (http://www.thehairstyler.com/hairstyles/search). I hope I've helped! Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.

    Question from: herve // Added: 31th October 2011

  • Hi! I've always had long wavy hair. I know it's the sexiest haircut on me but I'm getting bored and want to try a bob haircut, but I'm not sure whether it will suit me because my face is round and wide. I tried the virtual hairstyler but I'm still not sure. Can you please advise? Thanks!

    Hi, the great thing about a bob haircut is that it is versatile enough to suit any face shape. For an idea about the type of bob hairstyle to try, take a look at this article: www.thehairstyler.com/features/articles/hairstyles/right-bob-hairstyle-for-round-face-shape. I also recommend trying different bobs on in the Virtual Hairstyler again. It's the best way to get an idea about a look without having to cut your hair! Once you narrow down some styles you like on your photo, take them to your hairdresser and discuss what you want before committing to the chop. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.

  • It appears that I have and oblong face but I also need to wear glasses - what hairstyles fit best with a 55 year old woman who wears glasses? Thanks Sonja

    Hi Sonja, the following article will offer advice about hairstyles, your face shape and glasses - http://www.thehairstyler.com/features/articles/hairstyles/glasses-hairstyle - I also recommend using our hair consultation (look under the makeovers menu) and ticking the option that asks if you wear glasses. All of our hairstyles also list if the style is suitable for glasses in the hairstyle description. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: Sonja // Added: 15th September 2011

  • Hello! I think my face shape are very round, and I am looking for something with a little height on top, not too much round the ears but a little length in the neck. And I want a soft or elegant look! Please give me some advices, cause I can`t seem to find any on my own! Yours Sincerely Aud Chatrin.

    Hi Aud, if you're after a style for your round face then I recommend trying our "Find Your Perfect Hairstyle" Consultation (look under the "Makeovers" menu at the top of any page). We also have articles and blogs which list advice for round face shapes, so type "round face" into our site search or click on the links in the "Hairstyle Ideas and Trends" menu at the top of the page.

    Question from: Aud Chatrin // Added: 10th September 2011

  • I'm confused about my face shape. Please help.

    Hi, I have taken a look at the two photos in your account and it looks as though your face shape leans towards both a round shape and a triangular shape. When your face shape closely resembles two face shapes, it's best to go with the shape that shares the most characteristics with your own. Because your face looks as if it is slightly longer than it is wider, I believe it to be closest to a triangular shape. I hope I've helped. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.

    Question from: Sonja // Added: 06th September 2011

  • I have been unable to determine my "face shape" and therefore can't find an option for hair styles. I have added in my information that I have medium length hair, fine , thin and straight (all a girl could wish for ) (not) but as I said I am baffled regarding my face shape. My photo is in my details and I wonder if you could give me a clue to what I should be looking at when I go to look for hairstyles. Thanks in anticipation, Ruby.

    Hi Ruby, based on the photo in your account, I would say that you have a heart face shape. The widest part of your face is your forehead, while the narrowest part is your jawline/chin area, giving you a classic heart shape. I hope I've helped! Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.

    Hi, I've taken a look at your photos and believe that your face shape is oval. This is great news as you should find that most hairstyles will suit you. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.

    Hi, it's great to hear that you've found a style that you like. The CJ Baran hairstyle is suitable for oval face shapes so it will suit you.

    Question from: Sherry // Added: 30th June 2011

  • I am 59 years old and have always had very fine hair. Over the course of the years due to health related issues my hair is now also very thin. My mother's hair is the same, so I'm sure there's an hereditary situation as well. I'm very careful with my hair. I don't use any products to weight it down and have it trimmed every 6 weeks. Right now it is about shoulder length with some long layers in. I'm looking for a new hairstyle to "mask" the thin-ness, particularly on top. Is there any style that will help?

    Hi, I would recommend that you try our hair consultation (http://www.thehairstyler.com/hair-consultation). It will allow you to choose your fine hair texture and age plus other features and receive hairstyles that will suit. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.

    Question from: lucinda // Added: 01th May 2011

  • Hi, I'm a 15 year old guy, and I've been struggling to find a good style for myself. I have kind of short, EXTREMELY THICK, dry hair that I like to run my hands through on a regular basis. I'm looking for something that is relatively low maintenance (I'm willing to put some work into it) I want it to be able to get wet and come out looking relatively the same as it did dry. I like having bangs about to my eyebrows and have it long on the top but i want the rest of my hair pretty short (almost buzzed) on the sides and the back. This was and could still be the look I'm kind of going for http://www.sickchirpse.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/Justin-Bieber-Haircut-2011.jpg And before you say it, yes I realize it's Justin Bieber, and as much as I hate to ask for it, that's exactly what I want and I've had that haircut in mind for a while now. I would like some tips on how to style it. What gels, shampoo and conditioner I should use etc. Thanks.

    Hi, I'm glad to hear that you have found a style that you like. Taking a picture to your hairdresser is the best way to get the exact look that you want and you should not be embarrassed that it is a celebrity style. In regards to styling your hair, for the best advice and results, I recommend asking your hairdresser when you go to get the cut as they will be able to see your hair up close and in person and can let you know what type of shampoos and styling products will work for you. Hair styling products work best when they are matched to your hair type and texture, and without that information, I am hesitant to recommend anything and think the best course of action is to ask for product advice and styling tips when getting your hair cut. Good luck! Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.

I just started a job in real estate and I am getting comments that I look too young to be working but I am 25. I have gone black before which I sort of liked because my eyes stand out, but at the same time I looked like a ghost. I would like to have a professional style that makes my eyes stand out and I think I have a round face (I feel I have chubby cheeks) so I want a style that reduces my checks. Thanks!

    Question from: Gail // Added: 14th March 2011

  • Hi there, I do seek assistance with a suitable style. I am 60 years young and I have strong thick hair which I have worn in a bob style with a side fringe for many years. I like the fullness that the thickness gives me and I like a straight, bouncy look. My hair does have a natural curl to it hence the reason to keep the one length bob style. After washing I set my hair on big rollers and let it dry naturally. At the salon of course the stylist is able to blow dry it full, straight & bouncy for me. As I have a natural concentrated grey patch in the front of my hair (about 1.5ins from the hairline on the left) about an inch in diameter and about 40-50% grey all over I do have my regrowth coloured (light brown) and various ash blond highlights throughout. However the grey patch is noticeable to me even within about three weeks. My face is rather long and too thin but small in features probably oblong in shape. I need a change and while a layered cut might overcome the long, draining effect on my face I think I would have to compromise the full & bouncyness of my thick locks, which I don't want to lose. Can you suggest a style that I might be able to go to which will give me a new and lively look but gracefully retain my mature years?

    Hi, I would recommend trying our hair consultation (http://www.thehairstyler.com/hair-consultation). It will allow you to specify your face shape, age, hair length, type and texture etc and then recommend styles in our library that will match those characteristics.

    Question from: jp // Added: 03th February 2011

  • My hair is naturally straight and when I curl my hair the curl doesn't stay. Is there a product or anything I could do to get the curls to stay?

    Hi, to get any style to stay in your hair it is important to use the right styling products. For curls, try using curl enhancing styling creams and serums before curling, and then plenty of hairspray or setting lotions after. Curls require heat to form the curl, but they also require cold air to set the curl so if you're using hot rollers, allow them to cool in your hair for as long as possible to make your curls last longer.

  • Hi, I have long, very fine hair and not all that much of it! It is difficult to style as it is so fine and it has been pretty much the same length since I was a small child! I really want a big change and love the pixie crop that Emma Watson has recently had cut. However, since I have never cut my hair even as short as a bob I am nervous about whether or not a similar cut would suit me or my hair type. I tried the virtual hairstyler but couldn't find a suitable cut. Can you give me any advice? There are a couple of photos here if it helps! http://www.thehairstyler.com/chocnutty/galleries/3952 Thanks

    Question from: Robin // Added: 05th October 2010

  • Hi, I'm after a hairstyle that will make me look older. I'm sick of constantly being perceived as younger than I really am (I'm in my mid 20s) and the condescending treatment and lack of respect and constantly being overlooked that goes with it. FYI I am a petite Asian woman cursed with a round face that is hard to find a hairstyle for, complete with lots of puppy fat and the most pinchable cheeks in existence. Please suggest me some hairstyles that will make me look more mature and make my face look more angular. I work in a male dominated field so I'm not really looking to soften my look. My preferences are something short (nothing below shoulder length) as anything longer would overpower my petite frame. It also has to be suitable for a professional setting, so nothing too wild. Though I'd also like it to be versatile for both formal and casual occasions, so nothing too 'done up' either. I have flat pin straight hair that has no natural wave whatsoever and laughs at a curling iron. It's also very thick, coarse and generally resistant to styling. I also wear glasses. A short styling time would be nice too, as I get up very early for work. Though I'm in my mid 20s, I'm open to more mature styles, I need all the help I can get in looking older. Thanks!

    Hi, for the best way to find out which styles will suit your hair type, hair texture, face shape, glasses and other preferences and attributes, I'd recommend that you give our hair consultation a try.

  • Hi! I've had the same hairstyle for what seems like forever. I'm a 28 year old mom to two small children. My hair is long, with a lot of layers in it, and it is very thin, I just have a lot of hair. I've always had my hair highlighted blonde. I have a very long face, so I've always wanted to distract from my jawline. But, I'm eager for a change...I keep saying I want to go dark and short...but I don't want to hate it, because it has taken me forever to get to this length. What should I do?

    Hi Emily, first, I would recommend that you use our hair consultation (http://www.thehairstyler.com/hair-consultations) to find some hairstyle ideas that will be suitable for your hair texture and for your face shape. Then I would try those hairstyles on with your photo in our Virtual Hairstyler (http://www.thehairstyler.com/virtual-hairstyler). That way you can see how a style might look on you without the risk of cutting or coloring your hair into a look that you'll hate. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: Emily // Added: 13th March 2010

  • I have short, thin, very fine hair that is very dark brown/black with probably 60% gray. I also have a thyroid condition which is affecting the texture of my hair to the point that if I start out straight, it almost wants to wave at midday and if I start out with curls, it goes lank and hideous by midday. I would like to have a straight cut that is blow & go with no "pouf" and without having to use a lot of styling products. My stylist always wants to do a "punked out" do that I cannot replicate at home and frankly don't have the time or the want to. She is adverse to anything flat. I am very busy and the easier the style is to maintain the better. Also, I would be open to adding some of my natural color back in but my stylist insists on using the frost cap which gives me very uneven color and I have never liked it when I've had it done. When I've asked about doing the color with foil, she always has some excuse as to why we cannot do that. Any suggestions, besides switching stylists (family, you know, although I am a paying and good tipping customer). Thanks a bunch!

    Hi, it sounds like you know exactly what you want so I would recommend either telling your current stylist exactly what that is, or finding a new hairstylist who will give you the style and look you want. There is nothing wrong with wanting an easy, low maintenance style that's right for your hair and needs, or going back to your natural hair color. If your current hairdresser cannot do this, even when you are a paying customer, then a new stylist is what you need. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: dwilkins // Added: 11th March 2010

  • I had heavy copper low lights added 3 weeks ago to my blonde highlighted hair. It has faded to the point that it looks like I've never had anything done. I'm thinking of doing an all over color in the copper and then a few blonde highlights, as the darker color is more complimentary to my skin tone and eyes. My questions is twofold; (1) can I do this without seriously damaging my hair and (2) is there anything I can do to prevent it from fading so quickly?

    Hi, as a hairstylist it is hard for me to correctly assess a problem without being able to view the texture, tone, elasticity and condition of a persons hair and other factors up close, so I would suggest seeing a hair stylist in person as they will be able to personally advise you on the best way to achieve the color you want with as little damage as possible, and how to address hair fade in regards to the specific condition of your hair.

    Question from: Kelley // Added: 21th February 2010

  • My hair is very coarse and dry naturally and puffs up as it dries. Even if air dried. Unless I spend hours oiling and straightening it, it is very spiky, puffy and unruly. It is naturally wavy. Is there any low maintenance hairstyle that I can manage in about 15 minutes that will cut down on the puffiness? What products should I use for the dryness? My face is square and I have a very strong square jawline. I have a long commute to work and don't have much time to work on my hair in the mornings. I would love a suggestions for a cut and products that would give me something I can manage in a short amount of time. Plus, I am all thumbs when it comes to hairstyling!

    Hi, the right products to use to tame your hair all depend on the hairstyle that you're wearing so I would recommend giving our hair consultation a try to find the right style for you (http://www.thehairstyler.com/hair-consultations), and then taking a look at the hair products listed in the how to style steps that we provide with our hairstyles.

  • Hi , I recently went through a style change, opting for short hair. After a week or so I'm noticing a certain change in my hair and I am suffering from dandruff problems. Even after thorough shampooing and conditioning, the dandruff problem is not ceasing and I've even started suffering from hairfall. Please help.

    Hi, I strongly suggest you make an appointment to see a trichologist to examine your scalp thoroughly to assess the hair fall and dandruff problems and their causes. This way they will be able to give you an accurate solution. I hope I have helped. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: Aman // Added: 03th January 2010

  • Hi, my hair is a really dark brown and is about 65-68cm long and straight. I want a new hairstyle that can be finished within 10 minutes that requires no curling iron or whatever equipment. I need to tie it into a ponytail everyday. I want it to be slightly wavy like Selena Gomez's sometimes. Can you please help me?

    Hi, if you have naturally straight hair and want waves sometimes then unfortunately having to use a curling iron may be your only option as you may not be able to add waves to your hair any other way. Braids can work to add waves without the use of curling irons, but only if your hair is able to hold onto the waves created. For adding waves with braids, see this article: http://www.thehairstyler.com/features/articles/hairstyles/braided-hair-6-steps-to-celebrity-waves. If ponytails are what you wear often and you're after something different then you might also like to take a look at the ponytail ideas in this article: http://www.thehairstyler.com/features/articles/hairstyles/ponytail-ideas-hair-texture-occasion. For styles that only take a few minutes, keep an eye out for the handy "Styling Time" info with each of our hairstyles. It'll let you know which hairstyles can be styled in 10 minutes. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: Selena // Added: 28th December 2009

  • Hi! I am very confused about my hairstyle. I want a new look but don't want long hairstyles. My hair is very thick, hard and black in color. My body is skinny and height is 5' 8". Right now I am in a corporate field and have my own company. Please suggest me the right hairstyle. Thanks.

    Hi, if you're looking for a new hairstyle and don't know where to start then I suggest using our hair consultation. It can be found in the makeover menu at the top of this page and will allow you to put in your face shape, hair type etc and choose the length and hair density of the styles you'd like to see. That way, if you don't want long hairstyles then you can look for short or medium length hairstyles easily. Good luck! Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: Faisal // Added: 28th December 2009

  • Hi, I have long hair (past the shoulders) and I am thinking of going for a short, collar bone length angled bob but I have a round/heart face. Should I go with it?

    Hi, as long as your short style has layers through the back to give it height and lift, and at the crown for balance, then there's no reason why you can't wear an angled bob with your face shape. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.

    Question from: hunnybunn0812 // Added: 21th November 2009

  • I want a Cool Scene Haircut, but I have short hair what should I do?

    Hi, cool scene haircuts can come in all different lengths so having short hair shouldn't make a difference. We have a great alternative range that should help give you some ideas. Check it out here: http://www.thehairstyler.com/hairstyles/alternative. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: Tiffany // Added: 20th November 2009

  • If I have fine hair, will it look OK long? Right now I have a bob, but I really want to grow my hair out to be long and pretty! I have an oval shaped face, fine hair, blueish grey eyes, fair skin, and naturally dark brown hair. In your opinion, what would look the best for me?

    Hi, with an oval face shape you should be able to wear any hairstyle so something long would definitely look OK. Fine hair is also a good texture to have when it come to long hairstyles as it'll make it easier to manage the length. I recommend using our hair consultation to find styles that match your characteristics. It can be found in the makeover menu at the top of this page. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


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

  • Well I have 2 hair crowns on the back and my hair is a little difficult to comb. I usually cut the hair short and I like to use a hairstyle like Josh Radnor, but I'd like to use a different one, a little more long and to the side but I think if it is a little bit longer it will be even more harder to comb Do you have any advice?

    Hi, unfortunately a crown will always do what it wants to do. The best way to tame it is to style the hair in the direction it grows. I recommend visiting a hairstylist in person so that they can see the crowns and let you know if you can get away with a longer style. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: ddd1 // Added: 31th October 2009

  • Is it fine to apply oil on the hair and leave it for the whole day or two? On washing, my hair feels nice but soon it gets dry and starts feeling dry and lifeless after a day, then I feel like applying oil to it! What can I do to make my hair retain the shine? And how often should one wash their hair? What is the best way of applying shampoo? Is it direct to your hair or to develop it with water first?

    Hi, if you're confused about hair products and what is best for you then I strongly recommended seeing a hairstylist in person as they will be able to see your hair up close and personal and give you the best course of action. As for washing your hair, how often you do it all depends on your own hair's needs so let your hair be your guide. If you need to wash every day, then wash every day with a gentle shampoo. If you can get away with only washing your hair every few days, then try that. As for applying shampoo, it's best to follow the directions on the bottle. For tips about shampoo, see this article: http://www.thehairstyler.com/blogs/hairstyles/hair-product-tips-shampoo. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: simmilejit // Added: 07th October 2009

  • Hi, I have fine curly shoulder length blonde hair. How or what would you recommend to add volume. I have tried mousse, volume hair spray, volume shampoo & cond. I use a hair dryer and rollers. Please help.

    Hi, try this for more volume: apply mousse all over then flip your hair upside down and blast with your hair dryer. Rollers will also help and all depends on the size you use; the bigger the roller the more volume. A good thing to remember too is this: less is more. Don't drown your hair with too much product as it can weigh the hair down and cause it to sit flat. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: joanne // Added: 18th August 2009

  • I have very thin hair and never can get it to do what I want. No matter what I try to do, it always parts in the middle. I can never seem to get the side bang thing going on. Is there any advice that you can give me? Emily

    Hi Emily, I would suggest trying shorter layers through the top to take weight off. That way you'll be able to sweep off that middle part. You can also try blow-drying your hair into place and spraying with hairspray to hold. Another option is to attempt a very soft perm which will not create any curl but more volume. You can do this by having the perm rollers placed on the side where you want your hair to part. Side bangs will only sit well depending on the how the hairline naturally grows, for example, if you have a widows peak or cowlicks through that front hairline area then it will be very difficult to achieve side bangs. Kind regards, Serah Schuster - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: emily // Added: 03th August 2009

  • Generally, is it good to leave your hair with a little grease or should I wash my hair frequently in order to have better shape?

    Hi, if you are talking about sebum (which is the hair's natural oil) then it is fine to have a little in your hair because it will help to stop the hair from drying out. Hair can become weighed down from too much oil, however, so it is a good idea to wash when you feel it is necessary. Kind regards, Sarah Koessler - THS Hair Consultant.


    Question from: Jose // Added: 03th August 2009

  • Most of my hair length is long, but I have a few short layers around my shoulders and my face that are taking forever to grow out. Do you have any styling advice for what I can do with my hair while I wait for it to reach all one length? Ryoko

    Hi Ryoko, unfortunately there is not a lot you can do to make your hair grow faster and there are no miracle growth formulas either. Instead of getting frustrated when trying to grow your hair, the best thing to do is to try styles that will work with your hair while it's growing. Try blending the layers into your hair or try different ways to pin back or blow-dry your hair. This way you can use the layers to your advantage while growing them out, and who knows, you might even begin to like the layers. To try different looks to cater for your style while it is growing out, take a look at the range of styles available at TheHairStyler.com today. Kind regards, Paola Fioramonte - THS Hair Consultant.
