    12 Reasons Why I Love Kelly Clarkson's Chunky Highlights

    This has been on my mind for a while now and I just need to let it out.

    1. Once upon a time in the not-so distant past, a woman by the name of Kelly Clarkson had the chunkiest of chunky blonde highlights.

    2. They were chunkily aggressive, even for the messy time period of the early 2000s. I mean, people wore white eyeshadow then!

    3. Kelly's chunky highlights were like the popular style of the time, capris. Capris or "middles" as I call them were perfect for when the temperature wasn't too hot or cold. Kelly Clarkson's chunky highlights were like that, in the middle between blonde and brunette*.
