At R29, we may seem like we're on the cutting edge of fashion, beauty and style — and we aim to be. Well, except when it comes to one thing: our hair. Although we're happy to sport jumpsuits one day and culottes the next, changing up our hair — permanently — is decidedly more scary than sporting a daring new fashion for a day. We've all heard (or experienced) horror stories related to getting a daring cut or dye job, so we usually opt out of the whole hair makeover thing, letting our locks play second fiddle to our bold outfit choices.
