Face slimming style
I have quite a full face shape and I am looking for a style that will make my face look slimmer. Any tips?
‘Avoid sharp bobs that stop at the chin as this tends to make the face appear even fuller. Instead try adding length to your hair. Long, loose, slight waves with a centre or off-centre parting is a great style to wear to deflect a rounder face.’

Growing out relaxed hair
I’m growing out my relaxed hair to go all natural, but my hair keeps breaking! What can I do to prevent this?
There are several ways to grow out a relaxer and keep hair healthy and looking great. Why not try one of the options below:
1. Close-cropped looks are fashion-forward and look amazing. Ask your stylist for a beautiful, short, precision cut.
2. Rod- or roller-set your hair and you will get head full of curls to hide the bulkiness of new growth.
3, Braiding with hair extensions means your new growth is hidden with individual braids or cornrows, leaving the transitional process completely invisible.’
