While we are on the hair subject, does anyone have referrals for a good hair colorist/stylist in Gilbert/Chandler area? Feel free to DM me if you don't want the world to know who's really good. I promise to stay mum!

But not to go OT, yes being blonde makes sense here, due to fade
The best haircuts I've ever gotten are from Amy Sue, who works at Salon Amore in downtown Gilbert. The salon's in a historic building, and Amy Sue's the sweetest, most meticulous stylist I've ever had. Oh, and she's also a gifted colorist.

I agree on the sun side. I take care of a family where the kids all have brown hair, but by the end of the summer they all have blonde streaks the little guy who lives outside is blonde right now. the oldest boy who lives in his dark room playing video games has dark brown hair.

I've always had blonde hair (except in the 80's when I went through pink, blue, purple, red and green phases) but it's lighter here.

I second Salon Amore in Gilbert. Marci gave me some highlights that I love.

I've noticed the large number of blond kids in my children's classes. Now I know a lot of people are blond as kids and get darker as they get older, but there are substantially more blond kids here than in Seattle, where I grew up...and Seattle has a lot of scandinavians. Maybe it's the large Mormon population?

Ha. I had my own word pronunciations coming from upstate NY. Never realized it till I listen to friends there, now. Whatever, we all have something!
