We’ve become so accustom to the way we wear our hair. We have the style we like. We have the color we like. But sometimes we just need a change:

1. You get super excited about it for weeks. You’re so happy you’re finally going to change things up. This is going to be a brand new you. You’re going to look super fly.

2. But when the day arrives, you get super anxious. Should I be doing this? My hair looks fine the way it is. Am I being silly? Am I being too impulsive? What if it doesn’t turn out the way I wanted?? My hair looks especially good today. Whyyyy?

3. You sit in the chair, breathing heavily. Your hairdresser reassures you that you’re going to look awesome, but you’re still having a mini panic attack.

4. You see your hairdresser begin Edward Scissorhands-ing your head. RIP long hair. It’s been nice knowing ya. We’ve been through so much. But you’re in a better place now...on the floor.  

5. If you’re coloring your hair, you begin having heart palpitations. After the hairdresser paints your hair for 20 minutes, you’ve gotta just sit there. And wait…

6. Finally your hairdresser washes your hair and you can see the color setting in. OOOH MYYYY GAWDDDDDD. Here it comes.

7. And then when your hairdresser begins to blow-dry, you can see the final masterpiece emerging. Your eyes widen. Your grin stretches from ear to ear. You’re eager for her to finish so you can pull the “reverse cape” off and leap out into the world.

8. You can’t stop trying to grab where your long hair used to fall. You realize in these moments that this is the end of an era.

9. And you can’t stop looking at yourself in the mirror. It’s so new. It’s going to take a lottt of getting used to. But you look f*cking great.

10. When you see your friends later, they’re so excited for you. And the compliments begin rolling in. “OMG you look so cute.” “Girl, you look AMAZING.”

11. But when you get home at the end of the night, you begin freaking out. You may even cry a little. What have I done?? My hair was so perfect. I had a great thing going. Now I’ve gotta wait, like, six months for it to get back to normal. GAHHHHH.

12. But then you realize you’re just doing you. Your friends said they loved your hair. So did the lady in the bagel store. Listen to them. No matter what happens, it’s hair, and it will grow back. In the meantime, embrace your new look — because it’s a part of you. Whether you’re a new member of the ginger community or you’ve gone the pixie cut route — or both — you’re beautiful no matter what.
