Wow. I can already tell it is going to be STUNNINGLY gorgeous. I love the color from the back. Can't wait to see the front with your face (ya big tease!)

So, what I was going to tell you the other day is that most people will probably tell you it's so beautiful (and they will be right) but you might run into a few naysayers who will tell you they "just can't get used to it" or something like that. My mom was one of those. It is really helpful and nice when people love it. But ultimately, what I learned, no matter how many people love it and swear you look BETTER as a brunette, it is 100% up to how you FEEL as a brunette. I never ever could capture the feeling of "I'm sexy" as a brunette. And as my natural color grew out, and it was kind of just plain, dark brown, I felt less and less sexy. That's when I went back to blond, and honestly, it did the trick. It's all in my head, I know. So go off of how you feel, and not what other people say!!

However, the low (to none) maintenance is (was) sooooooooooooo dang nice. That's why I stayed brunette for 2 years. And if I go back again (which I probably will) I will darken my natural color regularly, with a tint of red or just a shade or two darker than normal, because that made my facial features and skin look better than my natural color too. And that's cheap and easy maintenance (out of a box) that I can handle.

Man your love hair is so gorgeous!

ummm... your "love hair" should say "long hair." Freudian slip. Clearly I love your hair.
