Eff new year’s resolutions. If you want to dive into self-improvement in 2012, listen to me, because this is all the advice that you will ever need*.
If you can’t change your hair, you can’t change your life.
A major haircut is a visual reminder that you are ready to make a change in your life. It can also test your resolve and commitment to change (“if I can’t get a haircut, how can I ever give up diet coke?”).
Ironically, I have zero skill at doing hair. I own one bottle (jar? tube?) of mousse that I never use, and I only pull out my hair dryer if I have a job interview, so I rely on my hairdressers to give me wash and wear looks that style themselves.
Over the years my hair has been permed (oops), shagged, cropped, colored, bleached, flipped, and textured. It was hot pink at one point, white hot blonde at another. I went through a period where I wore it in little buns on each side of my head. Lately I’ve been doing a lot of braids and pony tails, which was a sign that I needed something new. Braids and ponytails are what I turn to when I’m bored with my look.
Here’s what happened today:
So 2012 can bring it on – I got my hair cut, so I’m good and ready!
*You should also listen to any advice from your doctor, and possibly your mother (depending on your mom… I won’t get into the complications and caveats relating to crazy moms or moms who think you should get more cats to change your life…use discretion.)
