Hi Andrew
 
I think you are the best ever hairdresser going to date. As you can see I was rather lather large and when I was larger and I used to have very short hair cuts and never dyed it.

12 years ago I lost six and a half stone in weight and met a wonderful man, whom I'm still with. A little weight has gone back on and I'm doing something about that, but my hair has got longer and longer, I do dye it every few months, but I still have this stupid fringe and most of the time I have it in a pony tail.

Now my weight is dropping off I really want a hair style that I can manage on a daily basis and that is easy to maintain, but if I go out I want it to be stylish. The only thing is I do have a sort of double chin.
 
Do you have any suggestions? I would be very grateful. Keep up the good work
 
Take care

My answer:

Hi Kim,

What a great story that you have met the gentlemen of your dreams, I love a good love story. You're right it’s time to chop the pony tail off and go for something much more flattering.

Textured bobs with fringes are really good as the length around the face frames the face, Alexa Chung's gorgeous hair is a great reference for you, it's also great as it's quite messy and not overstyled.

Also have a little colour a few sun kissed lights around your face would look lovely.

Good luck !
