Why I cut my hair off

Happy Thursday friends!

Where have I been??? Busy as crap!

If you didn’t know or didn’t notice yet on Instagram and or social media, I chopped all my hair off. No joke I legit chopped it off. Honestly, there are so many reasons as to why I chopped it off. Today I wanted to open up and share why I took the plunge to short. 

It was impulsive

For the first time ever, I never second-guessed cutting off my hair. That’s rare because usually, I back out of doing a dramatic life change 99% of the time. This time I just walked in showed a picture and my hairdresser fell in love with the style and ten minutes later it was allll gone. Never have I ever impulsed a decision and just did it. Honestly, I think people in life need to remember that it is in fact just hair and it will grow and come back.  

It symbolizes something

The past few months I have been busy, that’s an understatement. I am in college I work full time and I write this blog right here. With that being said Coffee And A Blonde keeps growing, expanding and taking off. Not only that but I am trying to be as involved as I can in my community with fashion and culture. My weeks consist of meetings and more meetings. Besides that boring story, you don’t care about. I also have made a huge life change in the past 6 months personally. I have recently emerged out of my shell, found self-worth and even had self-growth. So when I was looking at my old frocks in the mirror it symbolized the old, not the new. I have had so much growth in the past few months and I felt as though that needed to changed as soon as possible.

Finally, it symbolizes change 

To me, this new hair symbolizes cutting off the dead weight. The drama, the hard feelings, the emotions and also to show people that I am comfortable with who I am as a person and who I want to be. To those people who might judge me it is a huge personal screw you, this hair today symbolizes my growth my new chapter and more importantly me. Change can be good and change can come at times when we desperately need it. For myself, I feel as though something simple like cutting your hair or changing the color or anything along that nature. Can symbolize something so much more than one may think.
