I have to publicly apologize for being that girl on several social media avenues this past weekend. I was self-absorbed and probably forced several of my instagram and facebook friends to roll their eyes and say “We get it, Colleen, you got a fucking haircut.”
But, as I was explaining to Cory, as a female, my hairstyle is a ginormous deal.
I’ve envied girls with pixie cuts for-ev-er, but never had the guts to do it myself. You know, I’ve had serious concerns.
What if I cut off all my hair, and then I realize that I’m SUPER ugly?!
What if I cut off all my hair, and I end up looking like a boy?!
What if Cory hates it?!
What if I hate it?!
I’m glad to report that none, not ONE, of those concerns were worth taking up space in my pretty little head.
I LOVE this haircut. I love it so much that I don’t even care if anyone else likes it (Cory does loves it, though.) I could have never imagined the sense of self-confidence that could result from chopping off my hair.
It’s liberating, really. I feel like a total bad ass, because I know it takes a whole lotta guts to cut off the beauty security blanket that was my hair. I know it takes guts because I was missing them for years!
Let me say, I’m so glad I could finally muster ’em up 😉
