I am not going to lie; I fell in love with Paloma Faith’s hair before her music. While I was on a search for a new hair color, I accidently came across a picture of Faith’s insanely bright, orange hair and “literally died.” Little did I know that this firecracker was a soulful singer.
Her recent single, “Only Love Can Hurt Like This,” is probably my favorite song thus far. Her voice is filled with sorrow and most importantly, soul. While Faith’s looks may be quirky, her musical talent is what makes her an absolute star. I do love you, Paloma.

Box of Light
Once again, I fell in love with Helen Anderson’s wild, colored hair on youtube. While Helen, the lead singer of Box of Light, is currently my favorite Youtuber and quite the vocalist. To my surprise, the British beauty fronts a catchy, musical pop rock band: Box of Light. Her vocals are whimsical and stupefying. Every Sunday morning I make my favorite hot green tea and play one of my favorite Box of Lights song, “Falling.” It has a catchy 50’s sound that makes me wish I was slow dancing on the beach with my loved one. I am keeping my fingers crossed that sometime in 2015 Box of Light will perform some of their magical tunes in the U.S.
