    Fabulous for even non blondes

    I really enjoyed this book. I'm not blonde (too much upkeep for me) but if there's anything you want to know about the blonde universe it's in here. If you thought that the blonde craze is some recent development, this book will show you the truth. People have strived for blonde tresses for centuries upon centuries. I love this book, I learned so much from it, including the best ways to get blonde myself. Get it!
