I tried the sock bun after watching youtube videos and my hair just got wavier...with no curls. If I want to curl my hair...it takes heat and looooooooots of hairspray. I'm probably single handedly causing the hole in the ozone layer.
As for color...I always stick in the brunette shades. I've gone really, really dark with red highlights and now really light brown. My poor hair stylist, Lacey, never knows what idea I'm going to bring to her. I've told her I wanted a mahogany color (yes...wood. I pointed to the front desk when I told her). And I've also brought her in a picture of Drew Barrymore (blonde Drew) and said "I want this...but not this".
