They say when a woman cuts her hair she’s about to make a major change in her life. My saying is, when a woman switches up her hairstyle, she’s about to take over the world! A new hairstyle can boost a woman’s confidence in ways she couldn’t even imagine. A new cut, color, or weave can breathe new life into you, change your mood and even make you happier!
I recently experienced a new level of confidence after switching up my normal curly look in favour of summer’s hottest do, box braids. I’ve always worn my hair in a few simple ways; a wash n’ go, a bun, a braid, and it’s been a few years since I’ve rocked straight hair. I longed for a change, something that would make me not only look good but feel good. I’ve never needed to wear weave, but I decided, why not! It’s a great way to protect my hair for the summer and it’s something new!
After installing my “new hair”, I somehow felt different. Yes, I was still me, but I felt a little more daring, a little shiny and a little new. It was kinda like a reset! In one week, I was able to experiment with styles I always dreamt of and was even moved to get out the house a little more! That probably had more to do with the fact that it took less time to get ready, I was overly esctatic about that!
As humans, we can become so monotonous, we are so used to playing it safe that we become boring. Experimenting with new styles, colors and cuts and doing what you want,can make you a little more exciting, daring and boost your confidence. A lot of times we are so caught up in what other people want, and say, that we don’t truly pursue what we want. When shopping for hair, the sales ladies tried to dissuade me, because I already have long, thick hair. Thankfully I march to the beat of my own drum!
Forget those people who said you can’t rock a short cut, some blonde hair or cornrows! Do it and take pictures! The only thing that matters is what you want and how you feel!
