This week more than any other during our time of pause waiting for the SouthCoast to cautiously re-open, my friends and I went back and forth with each other asking, "What will you do first?"

It took me a millisecond to say what I will do first once businesses re-open here on the SouthCoast: my hair. My color, cut, keratin, style, product – all of it. I don't care what any of the haters think, I CARE about my hair and how I look. Sorry, not sorry.

This here was just for fun. I was curious as to how I would look with purple highlights. I think I'll stick with my blonde highlights instead.

There will be so many choices once all of your favorite businesses re-open, but what will you do first? My friend Maureen says that she will be first in line for her eyelash extensions and brow wax. The brow wax will be a very close second for me. First, though, as I said will be this awful hair with roots about three inches deep right now. screaming for color and highlights.
