Being blonde has become such a part of my identity, I don't think I could ever be any other hair color. Throughout the years, I've experimented with all shades of the rainbow from a deep cherry red (my fiancé never lets me forget that) to a dark brown. I remember walking into the salon with a picture of Rachel from Friends and instead of asking for "The Rachel" cut, I wanted her chestnut colored locks instead. That lasted for a good 2 months before I went back to being blonde. After those two experimental phases, I made my friends promise that if I ever wanted to be anything but blonde, they would talk me out of it.
