It’s time to talk about my hair again part one: Agony

renee is my saviorSince then, I have a new policy for what to do in the moments when I have an idea for my hair. I get out my art supplies and draw what I want Renee to do.

Here is the latest.

  1. Love the artistic expression of the stylistic visions! I too have made a recent decision to embrace the gray and stopped coloring my hair earlier this year. Bring on the sexy silver!
