This is great! Marilyn is an interesting topic to write about and I love the way you centered it around her hair and how her entire life changed because of it. The writing style is so natural, like she's writing a diary. Love it.

A really cool and interesting take on this! Never really thought that much about her hair. I have to say, this was a great job! Have you ever watched Smash? Just out of curiousity...I think it a show you would love. Great job! And congrats on being featured!
