    Hi Sazia,

    I love this post. When it comes to hair color I am very meticulous about it. I don’t like to color from a box…I have it done for me. When it comes to highlights it is a must do. I love the second photo here of those highlights. So much so, I want to send it to my hairdresser because the colors are amazing!

    Thanks for this,
