Published in: News

Just like my time-traveling DeLorean, the bodaciously bright highlights all over the runways in New York this week were taking me back to the future! — all the way back to 1997, when I was all about fatty-bo-batty chunks of highlighted hair. 🙂 My coif was definitely BOLD and BRIGHT back then… I loved it, except when the streaks started red but ended up an unappetizing orange!

      Mine were gawd awful. The worst part was the fatty orange streak running through my bangs, LOL! I’d try it again if I could have somebody guide me through the process!

        I did have two cool streaks of RED going down the front of my hair. I wore my hair parted right down the middle – sucked when I had to grow out the streaks.
