So Lidia actually wanted to grow longer hair when she came to Afrodita, well we can’t use magic and make that happen over night, but we can prepare her short hair style for a longer one.
She also wanted a light color change, a bit ligther.
So Yoshiko mostly cut the hair at the bottom, without putting in too many layers, which would disrupt the look of longer hair later on.
Bangs were also added.
A warmer base color was also chosen for good look through the whole length of the hair.
