One of those things has always been dying my hair. I made it all the way to 28 without ever putting any kind of color on it. As my hair has always been one of my favorite features about myself, I was pretty proud of that. However, though I have never been tempted to dye it strawberry blonde to see if blondes really do have more fun, I have wanted to get highlights in it for years.
