Chessa! said...

your hair looks fabulous this color! I love it. I bet as a redhead you would look amazing too. I wish I could change my hair like this...I often feel like I would want to but I'd never be able to do it...not bc I don't have the guts but bc my hair is so thick that even taking it one shade lighter than what I normally do has taken a year!
