Corey says, I’m so glad we did this for you.
I say, It’s good, right?
He says, Keziah, it’s so good.
Corey, like everyone else in the salon, is really pleased I switched from full bleach to highlights. He’s been colouring my hair for five years and he thinks this is a really good move for me. I agree. We all agree.
Carmen says, You’ve got so much dark hair now.
Anna says, These foils are very exciting.
Chelsea says, It’s looking great.
Nicole says, You’ve really found your blonde.
I tell Nicole that it’s funny, I’ve been growing the bleach out for almost a year now, but my friends have only started noticing this week.
She says, Yeah, people are like that. You’re doing it so subtly.
She says, Other people won’t notice like we will.
She says, For them, it’s not a big change, you know?
She says, But for you and Corey, you’ve really been on a journey.
