I am thinking of going back to coloring my hair. It had so much more body when I colored it! My friend mentioned a caramel color the other day and that sounded really lovely. Here are a few ideas I am looking at that I gathered from my favorite fashion brands and photographers. The photo above is from Maison Scotch (Love their clothes!). Take a peek at the other ideas, next.
