GO PLATINUM AND LOOK LIKE A MILLION BUCKS

Posted by 05.14.16

Taylor Swift recently debuted a head of bleached blonde hair. It seems that the modern rock and roll image she’s sporting on Vogue’s May 2016 cover is one she plans on holding onto, at least for a little while.

Experimenting with hair hues just isn’t my thing, but I’ve always been a bit envious of those who’ve taken the plunge.

Are you obsessed with the size of your pores?
