So it has been a couple of weeks since my big hair cut. I honestly did not expect that many reactions from people – especially some insulting ones from complete strangers 😮
I am glad that most of the reactions where positive. And I had a lot of people telling me, that the most important thing was me feeling comfortable with my own hair length.
Indeed, there has not been one second where I regretted cutting my hair off. I feel free and I enjoy my hair so much more than before. I like experimenting with new hairstyles I could not do because my hair was way too long and heavy. And I wear it down a lot, too.
Some of the reactions I got where shocking to me. Especially over the internet it got worse. I had people signing up to our interned board just to tell me how awful they think I look. To me it seems insane that people take their time to sign up to a board just to insult a complete stranger.
One person complained about how I could cut my hair off and throw it into the garbage. That was very confusing for me because I never told anyone about what I did with my hair – so how can she complain about me throwing it away?
But I make sure that the negative reactions do not affect me too much. Like I said, for the most part I just feel sorry for those people.
Have you ever had unexpected reactions from your social environment after a cosmetic change?
