Ah yes. Much, much better.
I did ask my stylist (new stylist; this is visit #2) to go 1/2 shade darker than last month with the all-over color, but this is not as dark as it was last winter. When comparing photos, wow - I really didn't realize how dark it was then. Yowza. I love this much more. It's a bit richer-looking.
So there you are. Or I am. Or whatever.
