The chop

A fresh new business called for a fresh new hairdo. All that hair was just slowing me down.


I fear choppers remorse will set in by night fall but it's just hair and it will grow back. It's always after the first wash, when your hair doesn't look anything like it did when you left the salon and you think, "holy f@#$%, what did I do?"



Things are obviously slow at the shop seeing as I have time to take self portraits and write about my hair. Believe it or not I have had real problems in my life and I feel deserving of this kind of frivolity.
I realize cutting my hair isn't exactly ground breaking but it's hard to let go of certain things you feel defined by. Why not do something bold today? Try something that takes you outside of your comfort zone. Risks are always worth taking.

Amazing. Thanks for the tip. I swear it feels like I've been looking for a stylist for YEARS!!

Take another pic of what it looks like when you style it yourself - I bet it looks great!
