Two different angles of my mothers day gift....lighter hair! I am so over the black. I actually like the black, but just tired of it after 1.5 years. I am actually going to work on a slow process of going to a dark blonde, but I want to do it slowly and not end up with a chemical haircut. As it was, I lost several inches getting it this light and I wanted to cry. I do not want short hair. I am happy with the outcome for now though. It looks very naturalish.
