It may seem silly but hair can be a huge part of our identity and sometimes it’s easier to grow an attachment to it than it is to grow it! Hair can serve as a comfort blanket to many men and women who just prefer what’s easy and familiar.
But it can also be a great tool when you’re looking for a change. Because our hair has the ability to express our personalities, chopping your hair, changing the color or trying a new style can really be a way of feeling like a new person.
It may be hard for some people to ever see themselves doing such drastic hair transformations – change can be difficult for everyone – but after seeing a couple of these incredible new looks you might be itching for the scissors sooner than you think!
1. Chopping your hair can feel like a dramatic change in and of itself, but deciding to change the color at the same time – now that’s bold! This woman’s bold move paid off though when she decided to make the switch from a blonde ombre to cotton candy pink. Props to the hairstylist for being able to get this perfect shade.
2. This Imgur user called his hairstylist a “hero” after managing to transform his blonde, lion-mane inspired shag into a clean comb-over. Add the sharp, cleaned-up beard and this gentleman looks like an entirely new person! His ears must be feeling the fresh breeze for the first time in years.
3. One woman on Instagram decided to switch to a new ‘do to reflect some new life changes. Not only does she look great in the shorter hairstyle and proves to us all that change really is good, the chop was also for a good cause. This is the third time she’s donating her hair to charity!
4. This woman shows everyone how great a curly pixie can look after chopping off her curly tresses. Not only does the cut bring out her stunning blue eyes but you can also see how confident she’s feeling about the new look, sporting statement earrings and a bright lip. Change is good!
