New Year’s Eve 2016. I had been toying with the idea of doing the Big Chop (BC) for a few months. This was mostly due to the fact that I had just applied for Grad School and knew that if I got in I wouldn’t be able to get my hair done for a longggg time.
The Big Chop
So I woke up, said a little prayer and headed to my hair salon. I hadn’t told anyone because I thought they would talk me out of it. Things kept running in my head as I second guessed myself. I kept thinking..what if I look like a boy? What if my boyfriend thinks I look weird? will I recognize myself?. But also I was excited about showering with no hair. The picture above is the selfie I took this selfie to commemorate the exact feeling of freedom.
First stop was my mums house, I promised you I think she shed a tear. She kept saying but your hair was so beautiful, you had such long hair. My sister gave me a hi 5 and I knew there was no going back. It was NYE so I had no time to think about my decision. When I finally met up with my boyfriend he said he actually liked it. Not that I was looking for gratification but it felt nice to have him have my back.
And let’s just say it’s like that quote:
‘A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life’ – Coco Chanel
So goodbye long hair and hello to new beginnings!
