3 Reasons Why You Should Cut Your Hair

One time in high school, I chopped my hair off to my chin. NIGHTMARE. And then I did it again in college. NIGHTMARE PART II.

So for the last four years, I didn’t cut my hair once. I was petrified (#dramatic) of the thought of looking the way I did in high school and college. In turn, my hair was dead, gross, and just a lot to work with. Honestly, the decision to cut my hair was very impulsive. I actually saw Carly post about her hair cut on IG Stories, and booked an appointment with the stylist she went to like three days later.

I decided to cut my hair for a couple of reasons.

I was tired of my long hair

I remember taking photos one day recently, and just hated my hair. It was frizzy, it was messy, and the ends were absolutely fried. I found myself wearing my hair up most of the time, and not taking the time to do my hair. I will say the one thing I do miss about my long hair is my long pony tails…that’s kind of my favorite hairstyle.

It’s a good way to hit refresh

Since I hated how my hair looked in like 102113i21 of my photos, chopping all of my hair off was great for the blog. I like styling my hair, finding new products for my hair, and finally being happy with short hair. I feel so much better when I’m taking photos, and I’m actually wearing my hair down A LOT more to work.  This makes me feel like an actual adult;)

Stepping out of your comfort zone is a good thing

This was definitely a way for me to step out of my comfort zone. Since I was (dramatically) petrified of having another awful hair cut, I jut didn’t do it. When I walked into the salon, I definitely had second thoughts and almost changed my mind. Something just told me to go for it, I wanted a hair cut, and I was going to get it. The second I saw my hair after it was fully styled, I knew I had made the right decision. I walked out of the salon feeling confident AF.

So if you’re on the fence about changing your hair, I SAY GO FOR IT. Hair grows back. That’s what I always tell myself. So step out of your comfort zone: Dye your hair blonde, chop it off, or even get the bangs you’ve been wanting for years.
