I am a sucker for makeovers. I love movie montage makeovers and the character transformations in novels. I love seeing people in the hallways that I don’t quite know change up their look, or have a brighter smile. I love when someone flips their hair the opposite way and it changes their mood slightly. Makeovers are physical changes, but it can bring out hidden confidence and quirks by presenting deeper emotional changes.
In the saga of my life, having no hair touch my neck is a new and epic adventure. Ever since I was young, I’ve wanted to do something wild with my hair. Either it would touch the ground or I’d get a mohawk. My hair has taken its time, getting shorter and shorter over the years and finally getting a pixie cut is super liberating.
But, I’ve found that there are pros and cons to this dope decision:
- Less time getting ready
- Feeling super confident and suave
- Having something to run my hands through when bored, nervous, or stressed
- Light weight
- No more eating hair on windy days
- Easy, breezy, beautiful
- Forgetting that I can no longer make a bun and therefore cannot conveniently place my writing utensils for easy access.
