The girl in the mirror looked formidable, assertive-and utterly foreign to me. What had I done to myself? Here, I had jumped at the chance to have Manhattan colorist Rita Hazan dye my natural blonde hair a dark brown as a shortcut to looking older and more sophisticated (I'd graduated from sorority life two years ago, after all), but it wasn't going to be that easy. I had no idea how to be this person! For the next few days, I clumsily experimented with darker makeup shades and a more tailored wardrobe-but the new hair color was still wearing me.
