The Chop


Funny how something as trivial as a haircut can completely revitalise your mood. 

I do a lot of things in my life by impulse. Often I'll end up paying more for the privilege to do so. Last minute trips, comic con purchases, and don't get me started on how my food shops go. 

On a dull Thursday morning, I decided I wanted a change. I'd just got back from Berlin and I had a couple days before departing for Grenoble. If I was going to do something, it had to be that day. My last haircut was 6 months prior in August. I wanted something manageable for the trip as my current hair was the very opposite of that. After browsing for a good few hours, I found a style that I instantly clicked with. It was short, dark and curled (here's the part where you realise I'm terrible at descriptions). Honestly I don't know much about hair so I had no clue how the hairdresser would recreate it. I booked a last minute appointment at my usual salon (Rush, One New Change) for an eye watering £65. 

I was met by Ramona who took one look at the photo and said no. I'm pretty sure I'd be in contention for the "thickest hair in the world" award so anything with short layers is a big no no. I'm fairly flexible with my hair (it always grows back) so I was happy for Ramona to take free reign over the cut. I'm glad I did as I love the result. 

Over a week later and I still haven't experienced the regret that you usually feel when you cut off long hair, so that's a good sign. It's so voluminous and bouncy, I feel way more feminine and pretty than I did before (which is odd because I've always associated long hair with femininity - at least on myself as I don't have the most feminine features). I hope you like it as much as I do!

Thanks for reading, pals
