Introducing My New Hair!

A new phase of my life.


Notice anything different? I finally cut my hair (I've been wanting to cut it short for a few months). I'm so happy with the new style. It may sound clich├ęd or fake, but I feel (and look, or so I've been told) like a different person. It may seem ironic that I made the chop right after putting up my Why I Love My Hair personal essay, but that was actually a good-bye to my long hair, though I didn't state it as such.

Many people change up their hair for fall, whether with new color or cut. However, this didn't feel like a seasonal change to me: it's probably a style I'll keep for a while, and the idea to cut my hair was not based on time of year, but rather where I am in my life. I have had the same hairstyle, more or less, since I was about two years old (in other words, I've never changed it). Though the long, centre-parted curls had become my signature, I'd outgrown them, both in appearance and in personality.

I've wanted to cut my hair since mid-July, but a multitude of things got in the way, including procrastination, commute, and holidays. Nevertheless, I finally got it cut last Thursday at the Stratosphere Hair Salon in Vancouver by the lovely curly-hair specialist Dustin.

Even though, as I said above, I didn't specifically change my hair for the new season, my appointment happened to coincide (approximately) with the fall equinox. The switch from summer to autumn is gradual; however, it's a big change, and pulling out the snuggly sweaters and pairing them with my new bob is exciting and really feels like a fresh start.

I do, finally, feel really happy with how my hair looks and feels – and, by extension, how I look, and feel about myself.
