Taking My Hair Into My Own Hands—And Scissors
I like to be a very self-sufficient person and now that I am out of college and lacking a stable job, well those $100+ trips to the salon just aren’t feasible right now (yes, I can hear stylists cringing right now as they read that last part.) Seeing as I am on a health kick, I thought that my hair should be too, so I got out my scissors and I chopped it short to get rid of all the dead and fried damage. But before I took the blades to my locks, I got inspiration from Ashley Olsen’s September 2009 shoot from Marie Claire and made sure to have photos of my new hair pulled up on my iPhone. Then I chopped it off. Cut, cut, snip, snip, chop, chop. And now, well now I can’t stop touching my hair. Sometimes a girl just needs to chop off the bad to let the good grow.
