this post...I did it! Last Saturday I put my faith in bilingual hair communication and lopped it all off. For as long as I can remember I've wanted a brown, shoulder length bob with bangs, but always considered it unachievable because my long hair was so completely ingrained into my person. My hair has served as everything from a security blanket, a sign of my femininity and an identifying trait of my being. I've loved it, hated it and everything in between. Through it all I've let it just keep on growing. It's taken me years to get to this place, but I was finally ready to let it go. It wasn't an easy decision to arrive at, but sitting in the chair I was confident it was the right one. And it was, it feels fantastic. Not to say that everyone should chop all of their hair off, but when you've reached a place of hair melancholy like I had, I encourage you too to take the plunge.
