all grown out.
lately i've been really into this look of intentionally grown out highlights (sort of the beauty equivalent of pre-ripped up jeans). it's a strange concept, to work at having your hair look as though you've not gotten it done, but somehow it looks so cool and fresh. it seems this sort of painted on highlight look works best (if only at all) with tousled wavy locks well past your shoulders. definitely worth considering growing my own hair out for.
