Sadly, I don't really go all out with my own hair. I usually stick it in a bun and there you go. No pictures, please. Meanwhile, my mother and sister's is vibrant, gorgeous, and worthy of a TRESemmé ad. They can go from curls to beach waves to flat-ironed glamorous within minutes. My hair can barely hold a curl. Though when I was a wee baby bean, it was super curly. Now? Not so much.
However, today is about Luna and Fowler. Well, technically, Luna's hair, which may sound odd. But first lemme give you a ROS run-through.
Seventeen years prior to the plot, an eclipse has cloaked the land of Relhok and Luna, Relhok's unforgotten princess, is stolen away into a tower to ensure her survival through anonymity. Ever since then, Luna has remained hidden and monitored fiercely by her guardians, Sivo and Perla. The only catch: she's blind.
Luna, however, refuses to being confined to the tower. She yearns for the Outside air. So when an archer pursuing the woods below, Fowler, happens to be approaching with an injured companion, she's more than taken by him.
But after a forlorn turn of events, Luna discovers an escape route from the tower. Unfortunately, it's tied with consequences, so with reluctant blessings from her guardians, she decides to join Fowler in his journey and romance intertwines their stories along the way.
Luna's hair doesn't go through much of a transformation. She's a lot like me, regarding that situation. (Dare I even say?) She wears a lot of ribbons and it's mostly shiny and pretty. Eventually, she does cuts it, though. I have to share the hairstyles I'd think she'd look perfect with. Because why not?
Beyoncé in Hymn For The Weekend. You're welcome.

ABOUT SOPHIE JORDAN:
Sophie Jordan took her adolescent daydreaming one step further and penned her first historical romance in the back of her high school Spanish class. This passion led her to pursue a degree in English and History.
A brief stint in law school taught her that case law was not nearly as interesting as literature - teaching English seemed the natural recourse. After several years teaching high school students to love Antigone, Sophie resigned with the birth of her first child and decided it was time to pursue the long-held dream of writing.
In less than three years, her first book, Once Upon A Wedding Night, a 2006 Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Nominee for Best First Historical, hit book shelves. Her second novel, Too Wicked To Tame, released in March 2007 with a bang, landing on the USA Today Bestseller's List.
