When should one go for wild colors?
It's a very personal thing and no one should tell you that you can't do something in life. If you want to do it, go for it. Hopefully it doesn't interfere with your work or family lifestyle. You should take into consideration how it will affect your life though. As a mother, it's always a decision with my family. Sometimes you do things that are more appropriate for your lifestyle or work. It makes a very strong statement. It's not a blonde highlight. You are trying to make a statement and attract attention. So you have to take all of that into consideration. You can practice with temporary spray on streaks before you go all the way with it.
