Its been a couple of days since I have cut my hair and let me tell you, a little goes a long way. I love my hair cut and I can quite honestly say that I think the change was for the positive.
In the morning, I am not rushing around blow drying my hair and then straightening it – it is short, sweet, no fuss!
Previously my hair was a lot lighter, and I love having light hair – it makes me feel like I could look like a beach bunny when the reality is that I am working most of the time indoors.
With the darker hair, I know my Chinese mother is happier as I look like a “Chinese girl” and not a “cheap girl”. Ahh… gotta love Chinese mothers for always telling us the truth! Speaking of which…
Many of my close friends know that I am obsessed – OBSESSED with a capital “O” with cutting my hair and this is not as short it has been – I have had faux hawks, pixie cuts – seriously, any and all short hair cuts, Ive done it! Maybe this stems from when I was a child, my parent always made me have short hair. I used to resent it but now I really love embracing it!
Don’t get me wrong I do love the look of long hair – and I do wish I could grow out my hair so it would be flowy etc etc. And I have been told by a number of guys that long hair is “hotter” than short. Well, to my guy friends that think only long hair is hot – two words: Halle Berry! Okay, Im sorry I will tone done the obsession!
Everyone keeps telling me 2012 is the year of change! Life is too short to always stay the same, change it up – and any change, big or small is good! You can always start with a hair cut – like I did! It’s amazing how changing your appearance can lead to many other great things!
