Cutting My Hair : 7 Months Later

Seven months ago I cut my hair which i had natured for close to 10 years. There were a number of reasons why I decided to cut my hair but at the time I couldn’t really explain why I had decided to cut it, (not that I had to explain to anyone anyway). I however remember being obsessed over celebs who had short hair at that time. Specifically, Boity, a South African Tv personality. Instagram didn’t help either, I was so obsessed.

I am a planner, I plan things. But with this decision I was trying to make, there was no plan. All I knew was that I had this deep urge to just shave off all of my hair. On the other hand, I had a 9-5 job, which stirred some mixed feelings. I had so many questions like what would happen if by any chance it didn’t come out perfectly as I had imagined? What would my colleagues think? As a blogger, would it make sense? Will I be able to pull it off everyday? I however realized that all the things I was worrying about didn’t matter.

One morning I just woke up, left the house, came back a few hours later with my hair gone. What a feeling that was. My mum was shocked, my dad kept staring at me with an expression of disapproval on his face, my sister was excited. I had done it and I loved it.

The Journey After

I don’t miss my saloon days. Its been 8 months since I have sat in a saloon chair. Occasionally, I will stop by the barber’s to get a minor trim and it’s a totally different experience. Inecto’s caramel blonde has been my best friend. I color my hair after a every couple of weeks. Also I have learnt that makeup is an added advantage.

Right now I am confident with this look and I don’t really see things changing anytime soon. I know this will change, but for now, I am happy.

About the look

What’s not to like about the off the shoulder trend? This trend has been giving me so much life. I wore this white shirt, paired it together with a pair of ripped denim jeans and some gold shoes.

Thank you for stopping by.

Love & Light!
