Today I let go of something I’ve had for many years: long hair.
I’ve been contemplating for a while now on what to do with my hair. I wanted to either cut it short or get a perm or have it colored. My mom kept bugging me about my hair being too long and today I made a spontaneous decision of having it cut real short. I’ve always been afraid of hairdressers messing up my hair and I was really hesitant to let go of my long locks. I’ve never worn my hair short before so I was a bit anxious when the hairdresser started to cut it up.
But yeah, when it was done, I was actually really happy about it.
I felt like a fresh start. I felt light and free. I felt dauntless because I took a risk and faced my fears. (fear of ending up with crappy hair after a trip to the salon hahahahaha)
This will probably take a while to get used to (for me and for others) but so far I’ve been showered with compliments and I definitely have no regrets. I know I’m bound to have those moments where I’ll miss having long hair but for now, I’m going to rock this new look.
"There will come a time when you want to cut off all your hair. Do it. Realise that the thing you want rid of doesn’t lie in the long curls that frame your face so perfectly. Live with short hair for a while. It’ll grow." - x
Short hair, don’t care. ;-)
