Since around the time I last posted, I decided that I wanted to lighten my hair a little. I hadn't changed the color of my hair since senior year of high school when I dyed it back to black for senior pictures. There are many things to think about--wedding hair, roots, highlights vs. overall color change, what shade of brown, how natural or weird it will look, etc. Jenni helped me out a ton, encouraging lighter shades of brown, and my stylist suggested highlights for the time being.
...Turquoise was chosen because the greenish-blue stone is indigenous to Arizona, copper because Arizona is one the nation's top copper-producing states and purple because it has become a favorite color for Arizona sports fans, thanks to the success of the National Basketball Association's Phoenix Suns.
