How are you aware you’re caught in a hair rut? I’m asking for a buddy, aka me, ha ha ha!
I feel I may be within the throes of 1, and I’ve blended emotions about it.
A little bit backstory –– I’ve had the identical lengthy, layered, salt-and-pepper hairdo for a couple of years now.
Earlier than Connor, I used to be rather more adventurous when it comes to colour and size. For the previous few years, although, I’ve held onto this fashion as a result of it’s much less work.
At the least that’s what I hold telling myself.
Lengthy hair has all the time been decrease upkeep for me; I can twist it up right into a bun or throw it right into a ponytail simply, and if I wish to put on it down, all I’ve to do is curl a couple of items with a curling iron and that’s it.
I completely know what it feels prefer to need a massive hair change. Through the years, I’ve answered the decision many occasions, chopping and highlighting and doing all of the issues to my hair.
I haven’t felt that approach in ages, although. Positive, each now and again I get antsy to paint it once more, however somebody (often a hair stylist) talks me out of it.
Considered one of my theories is I’m at the moment in a season the place I would like a safety blanket, and that’s what this specific fashion is doing for me proper now — comforting me in ways in which I subconsciously need and want.
Or maybe I’m extra scared of change than I was.
I’m unsure what the true reply is correct now.
Facet notice, for some purpose being in a hair rut makes me consider the lecturers I had in center college. All my lecturers, and I imply ALL OF THEM, appeared to have dated hairdos from the ’60s and ’70s. The center college model of me couldn’t fathom why they didn’t simply go for one thing extra hip and trendy. I’m realizing now they may’ve been in a season the place massive modifications appeared formidable to them, too.
Anywho, I do know it’s simply hair, and within the grand scheme of issues it’s not that massive a deal. But it surely feels a lot deeper than that typically.
Your pleasant neighborhood magnificence addict,
P.S. Pleased Thursday to you! I hope one thing great comes your approach right now.
