Change is good, or so goes the saying. Change is also scary. When it comes to those areas in our lives that don’t require mandatory change, we can find that we are really stuck in a rut.
It’s not as if we have a buzzer that goes off telling us that it’s time to switch it up and do something different with our hair. Besides the fact that there’s no real indicator for changing our hair, we have most time fallen into our current styles by default anyway. That default setting makes it even easier to leave things be.
Think about it this way, do you go in and change the default settings on your microwave, or your oven or even your cell phone? For the most part, the answer is no. You just don’t do things that cause disruption unless there’s reason to because who likes to disturb the flow of something that works. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Right?
Well, yes and no. The thing is this, your hairstyle might be broken and you just don’t know it. Or maybe you know it, but you aren’t aware of how bad it needs changing. It’s not like people you encounter on a daily basis will every approach you and say that your hair needs to be different than it is. That just doesn’t happen. You’ll have to take it upon yourself to decide if it’s time to change hairstyles.
How you came to wear your current style is a very good starting point. When you examine this, you will come up with info that will point to things like whether your current style is outdated, not practical anymore or something you don’t even like that much.
If you wear the style you wear because that’s how your college roommate did it that one time she gave you a makeover, that’s a pretty good sign that you need to at least reevaluate things. Maybe after a thorough evaluation, you will come to keep the current look, but maybe not.
