i dye my own hair a lot. i've been messing around with the color since i was 12 or so, but the past year has really brought about some intense DIY transformation. you'll see a fraction of the billions of selfies i take annually. blonde is hard work.
  1. starting point: a deep reddish brown that was done in a salon by a friend but i later touched up myself. may 2014.
