Q: Hi Bill, I have always hated my hair. It’;s thin and I have quite a few baldish spots that started 6 or 6 years go. When I put my hair up in a bun or ponytail (which I often do), I have to check in the mirror to make sure you can’;t see any of the bald spots. When my hair is just down, I usually need to tease the back a bit to hide the thinning at the back, or pull some hair back from the front to cover it.

I would love to get your thoughts on an ideal cut, colour and possibly anything else I could do. I’;m always self-conscious about my hair. My natural colour is a medium brown; I usually dye it dark, and it eventually fades to medium brown. Thank you! — Kim

A: Kim, I think your natural approach to styling is perfect for you.

A shorter length, freed by the shoulders, will allow more natural volume. The ends have a lighter highlight in this photo—this is a great way to trick the eye.

Random wand waves will also add to the volume and draw the eye to this detail.

Here is the edgier version of this style. A texturizing spray will help add volume and character.

Off-the-face styling helps accumulate the volume of hair in the sides and crown. This should help with great hair distribution.

Stick with a lighter colour, not a dark tone, as your scalp is light and will show through.
