D’awwwww~!!!!

Also, great to see Marie back to her original hair color, and back on good terms with Ingrid.

I really hope the strip doesn't end before we see Cammi again.

So this comic is going to have a mostly good/happy ending but whatever happened to Alex? Did he get dropped down a plot hole like Kiley did in Ma3?

So Zoé gets to wax philosophical in the end. This almost feels like a final strip for the whole series, though I guess we'll get a coda or two.

I'm no expert on hairdressing, but how is Fabien's achievement "matching" Marie's original hair colour? Surely he's just washing all the dark dye out? Which may be tricky in itself, of course. Or is the implication that Marie was a fake blonde all along?

I know right? I like the comic but wasn't too emotionally invested. But this made me all "Awwwww" unexpectedly.

That smile at the end. :x

Now, I thought that Sandra's phone call with Didi took place right after she found out that Zoe cared about her, but now I'm not sure. It seems like the "mentors matter" line fits better here... I'm ignoring the photoshoot part.

Agreed. I'd like to see how Alex and Lavali are doing and I suppose Eloise and Nadine too.

I now suspect that strip was written by Giz, with only the information available in SotR strips published up to that date and without checking with Dave — so assuming that Sandra was staying in Paris under Zoé’s mentorship. It’s just a little bit askew otherwise. But I may be being unfair.

But I’ll also cheerfully headcanon in the idea that Sandra does one more shoot with Domenico for old time’s sake and to celebrate their reconciliation, before she heads home. I mean, why not?

Consistency is not, frankly, a great Pixietrix virtue.

Has science gone too far? Is the bottom-right corner real or fake? (What do you mean that meme is dead?)

I'm also not an expert on hairdressing, but my sister had her hair dyed purple and needed it removed for a job that required a "natural" hair color. She had a professional remove it (and she was happy with the results), but (1) it didn't return to her natural color (to be fair that was definitely going to be the case since our natural hair color is black, so she had to have it bleached in order for the purple to show up), (2) it required some touching up in order to look good, and (3) you can still see a hint of purple under certain lighting conditions. My guess is hair dye is not something you just "wash out", but rather something you bleach away and then retouch to match the roots.
