Craziest form of selfcare? Impromptu hair changes!! Love them. My sophomore year of college, I was in the middle of a particularly stressful finals week. And I walked into my apartment bathroom, grabbed some scissors and cut eight inches off my hair. I loved it. It was so fun.
I fully embraced short hair. I actually went shorter, and shorter. Over the few next months, I continued to cut inches off. It was so freeing. Short hair was so bouncy and fresh.
Life has recently came to a lull. I am extremely busy with school, but many aspects of life are still slowed because of the pandemic. I needed a little pick me up. Making a hair change was the easiest thing to do during this time.
But what did I decide to do???
Now bangs are not like short hair. I would do short hair again for the rest of my life. But bangs? Nope. This was definitely a one time thing. Never to be done again. Bangs are a lot of work. And I mean a lot. I have gotten very used to never doing my hair except for very special occasions. But with bangs, my hair has to be fixed. My issues with bangs are
- they never hang the same way
- they are always in my face
- they just do not suit my face.
I am so ready for when they grow out and I can tuck them behind my ears. I miss my forehead. But it is JUST hair, and it does grow back.
Hope everyone has a great week! If you have ever done something crazy to your hair leave it in the comments!
