Hey Peeps! Thank you so much for showering your love on my new hairdo and look. Since the time I got this haircut, I have been listening to so many rumours about me on ”Why did she decide to cut her hair?”. You could have asked me and I would have surely answered. If you know me, you know that I love pouring my heart out.
It’s true that a lot of things are going on in a woman’s mind when she decides to get her hair cut really short. Sometimes it can be a matter of choice. If you have known me since childhood or have seen any pics from that era, I was always a certified tomboy.
In my late teens, I got hooked on to all girly stuff right from dressing up to flowing tresses. Then came a time when I wanted to go for a change in my look. So many things came to my mind and after two years of dilemma, I finally got a blunt haircut for myself.
There were certain things going on in my mind, as with any other girl/woman and I feel I should point them out here.
Will she lose her appeal?
Yes, hair is the sexiest part of a woman and guys are crazy about it. So, many women fear that once they go for short hair people would lose interest in their looks. Being a fashion blogger that was my biggest fear. I have been to parlours so many times with this intention and repeatedly came back with coloured hair instead of a haircut. I used to feel I will not be able to carry many looks with short hair. And the fear never allowed me to bite the bullet.
Fear of negative vibes
Whenever we go through any change in our life, we get haters and negative energy around for sure. Like when I uploaded my first haircut on my Instagram profile, a girl immediately messaged me, “Why did you cut your long beautiful hair?” and I answered I always wanted to so finally got it done. I am sure she is not the only one who was curious to know this but many were. So, before you undergo such major changes, brace yourself to be bold to answer them all.
Cutting off your expectations of her
The haircut has always been a symbolism for a girl proclaiming the world “she is going to do whatever she wants to do.” The girl inside me fearlessly cuts her hair into the edgy style that I have always dreamed of. I was basically ridding myself on the rigid assumption granted upon me by society, friends and family.
So, the time has come where I want to create my own way. I have taken a step forward to the other side of my personality and ready to explore a new world that I didn’t know existed.
Cutting off the time needed for hair care
Yes, I have been struggling to maintain my hair since I got it coloured. Coloured hair looks so beautiful and with my hair texture, it was going so well. After few month I found it really time taking to maintain. Every morning used to start with giving lots of time to mirror and my hair. I have been going to salons to get rid of damages in my hair. I found a long-term solution. And it’s just my hair. It’ll grow back with time.
Cutting off beauty to tap into style
More than a cute and beautiful blogger I have always wanted to become a style blogger. The beauty industry always seeks for long and beautiful hair whereas a fashion industry thinks otherwise. Nothing radiates style like a fashion-forward, short hairdo. A true stylist is the one who can be more imaginative and create their own definition of beauty and style.
No doubt, beauty fades and style is everlasting.
Cutting off the fear
As I have mentioned above, I always wanted to look this way. I am surrounded by beautiful friends donning lovely hair. I have been cursed even after getting my hair trimmed that “Why do you keep experimenting with your hair?” Nobody bothers what I want to do with it including me. I always fear what will the society say and will I be able to take that.
So, I finally decided to cut off everything I was and be everything I want to be.
It empowers you
So the moment I got my hair cut done, I felt a new found confidence reflecting off my personality. I remember my first step out of the salon and I was rocking the short hair and couldn’t even realise how big deal it was. Other women who doubted my ability to pull it off acknowledged that they were wrong and “It looks so beautiful on me”.
Overall I am so glad I did that. My hair looks so happier and healthier than ever.
Until next time! Play to win and stay awesome.
