Wellesley, MA —

Amanda Young has always had high-spirited, adventurous hair, but she never expected this.

“Yesterday, my entire do just took off for parts unknown,” says Amanda, visibly shaken, not to mention hairless.

“I always knew I had happy-go-lucky, run-away tresses, but still. It’s such a shame, because I just had the roots dyed.”

Amanda cautions anyone who encounters her breezy, fun-loving curls to exercise caution.

“Those lively, light-hearted locks can frizz-out and become completely unruly if you stroke them the wrong way,” she says.
