We have all contemplated cutting all our hair off at one time or another, and sometimes, we gather up the courage to really plan for it. Whether we cut our hair due to hair damage or from the exhaustion of struggles, none of us are ready for all the moments that come after cutting all our hair off.
Here are 4 things you should expect to feel and do after cutting your hair off:
1. I just made the biggest mistake ever
From personal experience, the first thing you will most likely feel after looking in the mirror is “Oh gosh…I just made the biggest mistake ever.” You might not even want to look in the mirror anymore, but the best way to deal with your crushing defeat is to not give up on your new look.
The moment you walk out of the restroom, you might not ever come to terms with your new haircut. We suggest you keep looking at yourself in the mirror and checking yourself out regardless of what you are thinking. You will probably see that the cut is just right for you, and you can rock it!
Be ready to feel a crushing pain inside your chest, even if you were ready for your haircut, It is hard to see all your hair and hard work fall onto the floor. But just think of your new style as a whole new beginning, your hair will grow back and be better than ever.
2. Time to match your hair cut with your style
A bald or nearly bald haircut is a symbol. A fierce symbol. To compensate for the hair you used to style every morning, change your look a bit and feel more fly than ever. Bigger earrings and brighter eye shadow colors can really change the game.
Try wearing snazzier shoes, or get your nails done. You will really start to see a new look pull together, one you can pull off without a doubt!
Buy a few new tops that you’ve been dying to try, but might not have had the confidence or fierce new look. But most of all, realize that this is an entire change in your look, and it will take some getting used to.
You can still rock your same apparel and be cuter than ever, but everything might feel a little different, and that is alright. Your change in look is still just you, just a fiercer, edgier you!
