I finally did it! I let the lovely Tricia of Salon Che Bella play with my hair. She gave me highlights and lowlights and straightened it (which I will never be able to get it to look like this again!!). I never thought of myself as someone who would get their hair colored. Many reasons...seemed a little high maintenance and not true to myself...but now having had them for a mere few hours I feel really good!! I feel like I look on the outside like I feel on the inside!! Plus going to see Tricia is always a joy...she is delightful as a person and a miracle worker besides!!
