LAST Saturday I had my hair cut and I honestly think it has changed my life.
What I hear you cry? How can it be?
I know, I know. It sounds utterly bonkers and no-one is more surprised to say that than me but I absolutely think it has.
My new hair do or my new ‘bangs’ to be precise really have shaken things up. And, for the better I might add.
I’ve been desperate for a hair cut for a while and after being inspired by Michelle Pfeiffer’s immaculate, glossy and oh so swingy hair in Scarface (my favourite film, if you haven’t seen it you must!) I decided to go for the chop. The blunt chop.
And well, since then, the result has been quite extraordinary.
Firstly, I feel much happier with myself. Good ey? Not a new woman exactly, but definitely a shinier and (hopefully) more stylish version.
My new ‘do’ has encouraged me to smarten up my act and so I’ve found that I’m putting on more eyeliner than I normally would and getting much more adventurous with my wardrobe. I also feel sexier and even a little more mischevious. See that twinkle in my eye?
But what is more interesting than how I feel about my hair is the reaction I’ve had from other people.
My husband loves it (even though he’s never been a fan of fringes before) and is suddenly much more ‘attentive’. Friends and family have been complimentary – my Mum said I look 10 years younger which is well, really rather nice -and even strangers seem to be drawn to the bangs too.
Today, a lovely lady whom I do not know from Adam, told me that she loved my hair and although I might be imagining it, I swear people are just generally being nicer, smilier and much more pleasant towards me. Weird huh?
This kind of hair reaction has never happened to me before and well may never happen again, but I gotta tell you, I really do think these bangs are bringing the best out of me.
In fact, between you and I, I love my new do so much, I might just keep it for a while. So watch this space folks, watch this space :)
What do you think? Am I crazy? Have you ever had a positive reaction from a hair cut? Have people treated you differently because of how your hair looks?
Till the next time, if you need a change, go for the chop!
