Why You Should Chop Your Hair Off In Your 20s.

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!
