Now that the weather is warming up, I am so ready for summer! Even if it isn’t quite here, I can pretend that it is by starting to bring back my summer wardrobe and tanning. Another great way to put yourself into a summer mentality is to use one of these DIY brightening hair treatments to achieve a lighter hair color that will make it look like you’ve spent a week on the beach.
