Sadly, yes. I live in an area where there are just entirely too many bleached blonde, flat-ironed locals around here. I interviewed stylists when I came down here, and I can't tell you how many were trying to see me on the permanent Chi straightening system.

I can't believe all these wavies and curlies straighten their hair down here with the heat and humidity, but (from their dark roots) it looks like many of them are bleached blondes and probably their hair is so damaged that their curls are un-boingy.
