With people being judgmental of how you look, you can't help seeing it the way they see it. I was so insecure and I've always felt trapped having to condone to what others see as pretty, ugh! But I always gave in to that system, I had to rebond my hair almost twice a year, I always went back into the nightmarish house of mirrors thinking I'll feel a lot better but that barely happens. I'd probably have to go and spend lots of money just to 'feel' better about my hair.
So, instead of going to the salon, this time, I went to the barber shop. Yes. Barber Shop. I had my hair cut off using razors, a blade and big scissors. And… I've never felt so good in my entire life. I asked the barber to give me an undercut, and I had to tell you, it was so scary. For a woman who wore her hair long all her life, having her head hidden under all those thick hair, it was something I never thought I would do. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy trying to be pretty, I love to go to the salon to have a makeover and relax but getting stripped of my confidence, nope. As I've said, going to the salon should make you feel good about yourself not just look good. What sense can it make if you feel shitty and look good? It just doesn't make any sense.
It feels so liberating having had an undercut. It made me feel so independent of the shackles of supposedly having long straight hair, the suppressing reality that I can't have that and the want to look like the norm. It's been a year since I've been on my own, and felt like it's about time to match up my independence with my look. Being in the present day era it's almost like a breath of fresh air that it is more acceptable to rock this do, that more and more women are being in control of how they look. I am so grateful of being able to do this to my hair, it is so low maintenance, I don't have to be so conscious of brushing my hair, I don't have to check every so often if it is in place. I figured, I never really had any good set of hair so I didn't really had any thing to lose but even so, I think this will look great on anybody. Just being able to do this shows confidence, and confidence always looks appealing.
