Solange Knowles, younger sister to Beyonce, was married this past weekend. She's a striking young woman who has a style that is very uniquely her own. I love that uniqueness about her.

So over the last few weeks, I’ve been toying with the idea of coloring my hair. GASP! I’ve never in my life wanted to color my hair until now. Why?
