Honestly, I'm not too sure why I decided to get my hair lightened. I've never had it professionally coloured... when I was 17 I used to think it was achingly cool to dye it black - but that's about as far as my colour experience had travelled. Maybe the whole dip-dye mania managed to penetrate my subconscious and this is my timid attempt at getting in on the trend? I could be channeling my inner California girl... pretending to be a surfer with bleached out ends?
Whatever the reason was, I'm glad it tickled its way to the front of my brain, convincing me that tweeting at Jones & Payne late Sunday night about my desperate need for new colour was a good idea (they actually tweeted me back minutes later - on a Sunday night). So this is my new, slightly modified, hair... just in time for New York - where I'm coincidentally headed right about now. It's simple and I love it.
