Gino Magnarelli greeted us in Italian and offered us a cup of espresso, then surveyed our dark hair.

At first, we wanted to bolt, but Magnarelli brought us around to the idea. He parted our hair into tiny sections and quickly applied the colors. We loved our lowlights but the punk-rock highlights were dramatic enough that it took a few days for them to grow on us (we love them now).
