Many stylists might shudder at the thought of tending to two of Hollywood’s hottest heads in one evening–but not star hairstylist Ken Paves, who created Victoria Beckham and Eva Longoria Parker’s easy breezy dos for a recent LG launch event. “It took me less than 20 minutes to create each look,” Paves told PEOPLE. Inspired by their “feminine, sexy” attire, he worked with their natural hair texture to create “modern, effortless” styles to match. Not only has Paves been kept busy tending to A-list tresses, he also recently launched his Self-Help hair care line available on PEOPLE asked Ken to dish on how to maintain your best hair when the heat is on. His number one tip is to stay away from shampoos with sulfates, which “strip hair of its color and natural oils. When combined with sun damage, hair can become extremely brittle and dry.” Stick with an SLS-free shampoo. The second step to great hair involves using a deep-conditioning treatment once a week, which, he explains, “restores the moisture in hair.” And to keep your hair frizz-free, “Try a styling cream before you using any heat styling tools.” To get more of Paves’ summer hair tips, pick up the current issue of PEOPLE, on stands now. If you have a fall hair question for Ken, now is your chance to ask! Send it to (be sure to include your name and hometown, too) and you could see it featured in an upcoming issue of PEOPLE! —Jackie Fields

Hi Ken,

I lost a lot of my hair due to medication and it hasn’t grown back. I tried all these products to grow hair that left me with wet hair all day or night and nothing worked. I still have hair but it is thin. I need to best product to increase volume without being sticky. I am a gorgeous 55 year old redhead (not natural)! HELP!

Im starting to get alot of gray and its changing the texture of my hair and not in a good way. It almost seems poofy now. My hair is real short and I’ve always got lots of comments on how cute it is but not so much anymore. I recently tried Redkens new product line called TIME RESET and it seems to help with the texture alot but not enough. Knowing as much as you do about products I’m hoping you can offer some advice. I really want that cuticle to be closed and shiny again.

I have thick naturally curly hair (not real tight curls, but not loose). I have it layered and shoulder length now. Please tell me how to wear it besides down or in a ponytail! How else can I pull it back so it actually looks good.
