My hair has grown out a LOT in this past year — I’ve gone from a pixie cut to a little bob with an undercut — and it gives me such euphoria!! 🥰
The first photo on the left was taken in fall 2020, a bit before I’d decided to start growing my hair out again — though I had already started noticing that my short hair wasn’t feeling 100% me.
(Side note, I think the pandemic forced me to really look at myself and figure what was and wasn’t feeling good in my life — which I know was the case for a lot of people!)
And the photo on the right was taken just a few weeks ago during Thanksgiving, with my hair at its current length.
(Though if anything, my hair is a bit longer now — it grows super quickly!)
I officially decide to change my hair as the year 2021 was starting — and as 2021 is coming to a close, I can say with full confidence that I LOVE what I’ve done with it!
I was admittedly a bit nervous at first about going from super-short to not-so-super-short hair — would it look weird in the in-between stages? Would I hate having longer hair? Would I regret making this change?
A lot of questions like this swirled through my mind — but my gut said to go for it, and so I went for it. And I am so, SO glad I did 😁
(Plus, I knew, that if I really didn’t like it, I could always cut it short again! That’s one of the best things about playing around with your hair — nothing is permanent!)
My hair today truly feels like me, and there are so many aspects that give me euphoria. For example…
💗 I adore the feeling of my long(-ish) hair sweeping over the shortness of my undercut
💗 I adore running my fingers through my hair and tucking pieces behind my ears
💗 I adore putting my hair up in a little bun or ponytail
💗 and I adore looking at myself in the mirror and being able to truly recognize who I see
I don’t know exactly where my hair journey will take me from here (I might want to dye it different colors like I did pre-2020!)
But I *do* know that I will keep following my gut, and doing what feels right for me ❤️
