Want your own hair consultation from celebrity hairstylist Bill Angst? Send at least TWO well-lit, preferably hi-res photos of you (one close-up, one full-body) with a brief description of your hair texture, colour and main hair challenges to info@beautyeditor.ca with “Bill Angst Hair Consultation” in the subject line.

Q: I have been debating what to do with my hair for the longest time and rather than do anything... yet... I've been doing nothing except letting it grow. It is a bit longer than in this picture. I can't decide if I should go back to shoulder-length hair and/or get bangs.

I am 5'3". I have very dark brown hair and my hair texture is healthy but 50 percent grey. I colour the roots at home every five to six weeks with a soft black to cover the grey. I eagerly look forward to your advice. — Kim

A: Hello Kim, I say yes to some long bangs and a lot of layers. You should be able to almost tuck them behind your ears.

The shaggy ends will need a texture cream to separate them.

I would continue to do your roots, but go to a hairdresser and get some warm highlights to make this style pop:

No highlights at the part, only underneath—a peek-a-boo so your touch-up will not erase them for a few colourings.

Have fun!
