The Light And Dark Of It All

Whether we like it or not, our hair color tends to change a little, or a lot, over the summer. Personally, my dark brown locks get lighter as I spend more and more time outside, no matter what I do to protect them.

A few auburn highlights sprinkled throughout the bottom half of hair will show off its movement and give it added depth. A messy low bun is always the way to go for a long, hot day. The messier it gets, the better it looks.
