I currently do not stock the power or the dream to chop it all off because it simply feels right. Occasionally, on a stalled train home, I’ll look at the girl with the purple tips and fantasize about it on my head. That and storm-silver are constantly neck and neck in my thoughts. I won’t. But it’s fun day-dreaming. When I trust in the reality, one that says that I am far too indecisive to sit and charge hundreds on a color that maybe won’t last a month; I go for subtle changes.
This fall, it’s a chopped fro and lighter locks. Occasionally, it’s two twists going back for a week, or cornrows for a weekend, all in which someone will surely exclaim; “You’ve lost weight!” Simply because my hair is no longer rounding me out. Truth be told, the shock of doing something worth a comment isn’t lost on me. I like a good, “You’ve done something different.” every now and again. I find that subtle changes (in almost anything) shakes things up, allowing for a refreshed picture of yourself–even only for a week or so.
And so, are you doing anything different with your hair this season? I’ve had two friends go lighter, and another just cut her natural hair off. All of them look stunning and seem super happy with the change.
