I noticed a big difference when I went blonde. I love it so much because my personality changed as well, all due to the type of attention I was getting. A few Years ago I started wearing red lipstick and got noticed even more. Just about every single time I wear it, someone makes a comment.
Going through this transition was hard considering I have been in the restaurant business all my life. I wish I knew this when I started! I missed out on a ton of tips walking around trying to me the "down-to-earth" chic with the nice personality. Screw that. Glam is better.
