i have really poofy hair how do i make it flat and straight also what is a great hairsyle for dresses

You can apply a serum (I like super skinny serum) or a straightening balm. Those will help with frizz as well as protect your hair. Then use a straightener and voila! 

As for a hairstyle with dresses, it depends on what you like. Sock buns are really popular right now and would classy with any dress. Otherwise, I would go with some all over curls. You can do a lot from there. Pull them into a low messy bun or pull some of the curls back for a half up look.

I have super thick, sort-of wavy brown hair that has now grown down to my waist. I'm going away to school in the fall and I want to get a really low maintenance hair cut just because I'm tired of trying to find a way to make it look good every morning. I've been thinking maybe an Emma Watson inspired pixie cut or something of that sort. I'm a bit worried about having to get it trimmed so frequently, as I've read that you should with this type of cut. I also don't know whether it would look good.

No matter what, you are going to have maintenance with a cut. Having short hair, you will definitely need to keep up with trims if you are wanting to keep it short. Whether it is short or long, hair grows at the same rate. It is just more obvious when it grows if it is short. With a pixie cut, there may be more maintenance then you realize. You may have to put styling products in it for it to do what you want. I used to have really short hair, and there was never a “wake up and go” way of life for me. With it being so short, I would wake up with my hair sticking straight up in places and there was no way to fix it without getting it wet in the shower. Even with a spray bottle, it wasn’t enough to tame the messy pieces. With longer hair now, I rarely have messy hair in the morning. And it’s easy to throw up in a ponytail when I don’t want to do anything with it.

I think going short is a great idea! It is fun and cutting your hair dramatically is always a great way to start a new chapter in your life. But if you are wanting a pixie cut or something similar because you want something low maintenance, I would maybe pass on it. For something easy to maintain, try cutting a few inches off. Just enough so that’s you can throw it in a ponytail when you are tired of it, but when you feel like styling it or going out, you still have that option. AND you won’t wake up with crazy hair in the morning! 

Hope this helps! Again, this is only my opinion formed by my personal experiences!

Ok so I have blonde and brown hair and I usually get it professionally done, but anyways I thought I would try and take the brown out myself and it just made it a lighter brown and killed it a little I made a hair appointment with my hair dresser to just dye the entire thing a lighter blonde and get rid of the brown with a cut and I don't know if its ok to re dye it right away or? Cause it will be 5 days since I dyed it last.

It isn’t GREAT for your hair, but depending on the previous damage to your hair, you should be okay. I have had to do multiply bleaching sessions to my hair with extremely strong bleach. My hair isn’t in the best condition, but it’s not falling out either. 

Also, your hairdresser will be able to tell you if your hair is too damaged to bleach it again right away. 

Just be sure to take great care of it after bleaching it! Do deep conditioning treatments! :D

what would you recommend for me to do: i have bleached my hair many times, my natural colour is medium brown, and now it's dark brown, how would I work around getting my hair lighter again? xx

Are you wanting to get to something similar to your natural color? Or are you want something way lighter?
If you are wanting to go all over blonde, I would recommend starting with all over heavy highlights.
If you are just wanting to go to your natural hair color, you can do what is called a shampoo cap. I would probably recommend going to a salon for this. They will mix shampoo with bleach and lather it on your head and rub it for a while until it has lightened enough for the desired color to take, like a medium brown. 

I hope this makes sense and helps! Let me know if you have any other questions :]

hi, my hair is just below my shoulders dark brown with bleached (ombre) upto just below my ears, do you think it would be a good idea/look good to dye it maybe baby pink, lilac or turquoise? or do you think it would look odd? x

No, I think either color would look great! I am all for coloring hair unnatural colors, haha. And I love the ombré look. Go for it! And feel free to submit pictures!!!!

I have auburn hair naturally, and would like to do a pink, purple, and teal combo for the summer. If I bleach and dye it, will my hair be able to go back to the auburn color it is naturally? I've been told by my family it won't...

It will, eventually. Once you are done with the pink, purple, and teal, you can attempt to dye it back to a color that is similar to your natural color. After that, you will just have to wait for your hair to grow all the way out to have a full head of your natural color again.

Some people use stuff from a beauty store to strip the color from hair and go back to the natural color, but in my experience I have never seen these work like expected. They will strip most of the color out, but leave you with a color that isn’t your natural color still, and is usually several different colors anyways.

I'm about to donate my hair, 10 inches of it. It'll be my first time having my hair short in a long time. A few people have voiced opinions that short hair will look bad on me ( I have a round face, not sure if that makes a difference) I really want a cute but different hair do. 10 inches comes right above my shoulders. Help? I really need a new hairstyle. Something funky, but I don't think I want a pixie cut. Thank you!

First of all, don’t listen to other people. Donating your hair is such a wonderful thing, AND as long as your confident and knowledgeable about how to style your hair and what works for you, anyone can pull of almost anything! I promise. 

If you want to leave your hair as long as possible after taking the 10 inches off, try an A-line hair cut, and you can opt to get it stack in the back. 

this is an A-line cut and it looks like there isn’t much stacking going on in the back. this particular cut has a lot of choppy layers, which makes this average haircut really funky!

I really like this one! It has a lot of “wispy” layers. It is also an A-line cut, with the length in the front a bit longer than in the back. This would look especially good on anyone with a round face, as you mentioned you have. 

Another idea is to get a cut like one of these above, but ask the stylist to give you straight bangs. They look great on people with round faces, adding angles to a “non-angular” face shape :]

I hope this helps! Don’t hesitate to ask anything else :]

Hey lady, I have a random question. A few months ago I cut my hair super short and on an angle. I loved it but I really miss my long hair and so I am trying to grow it out again. The problem is that it is taking so long and I feel like it's in a really awkward stage right now. Any ideas on how to make my hair grow faster and any suggestions on how to do my hair at it's awkward length. It's basically just at my shoulders now but it shorter in the back because of the angle.

I know exactly how you feel! I am growing mine out at the moment, and it is so awkward right now.

You can try taking biotin. It is a supplement for hair, skin, and nails available even at walmart for about $6. Make sure you are getting regular trims. You don’t even need much off. Even 1/4 of an inch is better than nothing. Basically, keep your hair healthy and don’t let it dry out! Purchase a good shampoo and conditioner and a leave in conditioner you can put in after showering. 

For now, you may just have to suffer through the awkward stages. I wish I had better advice than that. My advice is to find some hair styles that you could try. Try curling your hair if you usually straighten it, or vice versa. Find some hair styles where you pin up the sides or your bangs. Try anything new! It will be refreshing and maybe give a new twist on your awkward stages :D

Hi. I have medium brown hair, about 3 1/2 inches longer than my shoulders, but it's growing quite quickly. In the summer, I want to get the underneath of it bleached and dyed turquoise, but I'll have to have it brown again by September. I think the turquoise will fade by then, but it will still be bleached. How can I get it back to brown again? Would dye stripping work? And how much ish would it cost do you think, for the bleaching, dyeing, and stripping/other way of fixing it? Thanks!


Actually, you don’t need to get dye that will strip your hair. You are correct in saying that the teal will most likely fade by September and it will still be blonde. When you are ready to color the underneath brown again, just go ahead and put the brown dye/developer mixture straight on the blonde. You can get bleach at Sally’s for anywhere from less than $5-$10 and brown dye for about $5. You probably want volume 10 developer for the dark brown and probably 20 or 30 volume developer when doing the bleach, depending on how fast/how dark your starting color is.
