CAIRO - 8 September 2017: Growing up, my mother never allowed me to change my hairstyle. She never made me cut it or either made me dye it. When I reached 16, I was feeling the need for some change in my life. So, I decided to cut my hair to a shoulder length. However, my mother did not agree. Therefore, I took the scissors and cut my hair myself. Cutting my hair made me feel stronger, powerful, and rebellious.
In case you were wondering if I got grounded, I did!
However, that was not the only time I took the decision of cutting my hair. Last year I was going through a big change in my life. I was graduating and looking for a job that fits my qualifications, but I was feeling that there is something missing. So, I took the decision to cut my hair. After cutting my hair I felt relieved and prepared for the new chapter in my life.
Somehow it sounds crazy, but cutting my hair helped me out!
I’m not the only person who feels cutting hair helps women change, but also a huge group of women feels the same way. If a woman, in general, is depressed or needed some change in her life, she cuts her hair off.
For instance, do you remember the depression phase Britney Spears went through in 2007 and she decided to shave her head?
Another example is Miley Cyrus in 2012 when she cut her hair because she needed some change in her career, and according to the fashion designer and icon Coco Chanel, “A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life.”
Even in films and television shows when women cut their hair off it is a metaphor for a big change in their life.
So, if you are going through a change or feeling depressed, the best cure for you is to cut your hair off.
