Lighten Up!

Lately, I've been realizing I'm in need of a style upgrade. While it's comfortable to rock the same 'do for years and years, it certainly isn't exciting and, quite frankly, a little drab. So me and my dull locks took a trip to the Marco Pelusi Salon in West Hollywood, California for a cut and color courtesy of Joico stylist extraordinaire Cherry Petenbrink. You can imagine Cherry's excitement when I confessed I hadn't colored my hair in over five years... my hair was practically born-again virgin. I came armed with inspiration - in the form of a snapshot of Ashley Greene's sun-kissed tresses and carefree long-layered cut - and Cherry translated the style nearly flawlessly, adding a mix of golden and strawberry highlights (courtesy of Joico Vero K-Pak) that grant richness and dimension to my natural light brown hue. Looking in the mirror at my bright new strands, I couldn't believe I had waited so long to update my look. This summer, I urge everyone to take some time out and re-discover yourself with a fresh new style for the season. Why not?
