Ashlee and an Error in Parallelism

May 14, 2006

Ashlee Simpson had a nose job, got two tattoos, and her hair is blonde again.

This sentence is incorrect because it contains an error in parallelism. The first two items in the list are verb phrases and the last item in the list is a clause. Change the clause to a verb phrase to correct the sentence.

Ashlee Simpson had a nose job, got two tattoos, and changed her hair color from black to blonde.
