Going From Brunette to Blonde

I even let my hair go naturally curly in honor of my new, bubbly persona.
And darn if this wasn't freeing! Friends credited me with inspiring them to experiment with color, my boyfriend admitted enjoying the "novelty" of waking up next to a blondie, and my parents even warmed up to the new me. I won't be blonde forever - I feel sexier as a brunette - but for now, I'm enjoying the sunny side.
