5 reasons why you should big chop this summer
Imagine you’re scrolling on your timeline on Instagram and you see all these beautiful and edgy cuts on pages such as “The Cut Life.” You’re admiring the looks and you really want to try it out but you’re hesitant, scared, and you think that it’s something you can’t pull off. But what if I can persuade you with 5 reasons why doing the big chop this summer will be your next best move? Sounds good, right? Let’s get started!
It’s The Kickstart You Need
You’ve heard the saying that when a woman decides to cut her hair that it means she is embarking a new journey. That’s because cutting your hair is the prelude to a wonderful journey. It may sound funny, but when those locks of hair fall, you not only look different, you are guaranteed to feel different in a great way. Suddenly those things you were too scared to do seem so tiny and they become conquerable, a small pebble that you can easily kick with no hesitation.
It’s Just Hair, It WILL GROW BACK!
Literally, your hair is just hair! As India Arie sung: “I’m am not my hair!” Your hair is used to being cut, flipped, curled, straighten, and most definitely cut! If at any moment you think that cutting your hair was a bad mistake (which I highly doubt) you can reassure yourself that it will not look the same within a month or even a week!
It’s A Great Way to Try Out Newer Products
I don’t know about you, but I get really excited when I take a trip to the beauty supply store. I immediately run to the hair section! All those wonderful products are just waiting on the shelves for you to pick them up and explore. So what better way than to utilize your new short look than to try out some new goodies? Whether you are doing the big chop with natural hair or processed there are an unlimited amount of products with your name on it. Take a leap of faith and go for it!
Say Hello to Quick Morning Routines
Remember those mornings where you would have to wake up an hour or two early because you knew that your hair requires time to actually ACT right? Well, the benefit of chopping your hair off is that your short hair is just a simple touch up and go! Say goodbye to those long hours in the mirror and say hello to that extra hour of sleep you can finally get!
It Allows You to See You As JUST You
Often a lot of women don’t like to admit that they use their hair as a barrier to cover up who they are. They hide behind their long hair because they aren’t willing to commit and sometimes just get stuck wearing their hair in the same look because it’s comfortable. But with doing the big chop there is no such thing as being comfortable. It forces you to step out of the box and allowing you to be just you. Your true personality can finally shine through and that beautiful face of yours gets the attention it deserves.
