Most bloggers will tell you to go do amazing things in your 20’s like, travel around the world, have lots of sex, and take every opportunity; and I totally agree. As much as I would LOVE to travel it is just not in the budget unless I am traveling to my backyard. My travel is through great drinks and food. Here is what I did instead.
A beautiful day in 2013 I walked into my hair appointment and decided I was going to shave my head. I just did it. No turning back. I immediately loved it.
Most people love the new hair style on me or at least say it fits my personality. I also know a lot of people that loved my long hair. I hated it, it was a nuisance, it rarely looked good, and honestly it was back in a bun about 95% of the time. I really don’t care what people think about my hair, I love it, and it makes me feel great about myself.
Short hair is awesome and I don’t ever want to go back. #shorthairdontcare
Here are a few reasons why…
1. Liberation- I Instantly felt liberated when I chopped my hair off. I felt like it was my first giant decision of my life that my parents did not have say over. It made me feel more like me.
2. Freedom- I felt by making a large change in my life I was set free from my old life and past experiences. I was reinvented. It was a new day to become a new, better, and more stylish person.
3. Confidence- What’s wrong with being confident? Absolutely nothing! I could now walk into a room and feel like I owned the place. I no longer felt shy or as anxious as I used to. This new hair couldn’t be attached to a dull girl.
This haircut helped me become a woman. About a week after the big chop I met my husband. =]
Take chances, make mistakes, and get your hands dirty; that’s what your 20’s are for. Cheers!
