Here it is!
The debut of my new short locks!
What do you guys think?
It's weird, I thought that the moment I chopped them off I would start bawling or completely regret it. But once it was cut, I felt.....relieved.
The last time I cut my hair this short was my sophomore year of high school. It wasn't the most flattering cut because the hairdresser kind of butchered the layers and gave me some horrid highlights, so I vowed to grow out my hair since. The past 7 years I've only trimmed it an inch or two whenever I'd go into the salon. Until now.
With graduation approaching and the end of a 5-year chapter of my life coming up, what better time than now to try out a new look? I've been craving a change for a while now, and a haircut was the craziest thing I could come up with (I passed on a painful tattoo and already went through a piercing phase in high school). I've had a lot of ups and downs these past few years but I've become a stronger person since. I know this sounds silly, but I felt like my long hair was a symbol of my past. Once I cut it off, I had a fresh start. A new beginning.
And so far, I've had no regrets.
Oh, and shoutout to Aeropostale for having amazing apparel that's perfect for this upcoming spring and summer season! I'll be wearing this floral top and denim vest a lot, especially during them warm days when the sun comes out to play (which is hopefully a lot!).
