Many of us have, at some time or other, lightened our hair, and more than a few have probably gone blond. But although a lot of us have been flaxen-haired at some point or another, I'm betting our reasons for doing so vary pretty widely. Some people go blond to cover up gray hair, some just want add a little contrast, and some want to feel like Marilyn Monroe. I've been blond for a whole host of reasons personally, from needing a change after a breakup to trying to copy Gwen Stefani's amazing hair. Why have you been blond? And if you've got a funny blonding story, please do tell!
