I was taken aback by Gao's candour: The thought of shaving off all my hair because I'd dyed it to oblivion sounded like something I would definitely regret, but she was dead serious. It was this mantra that finally encouraged me to make a change. See, I've been thinking about dying my hair for over a year now and, despite encouragement, I've always made excuses when it came time to pull the trigger on a new 'do. This month, however, I finally bit the bullet and booked an appointment with colourist Madison Garrett
at Spoke & Weal
salon to dye my full head of virgin hair. What's more, I decided on one of the most daring shades around: pink!
