Reactions to my hair cut

hair pony tail

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?

      Thank you very much Erwin! It scares me how humans behave when they are anonymus. It is as if we can only be kind if people know who we are. Isn’t that strange?
      But you are right, I should just ignore them and listen to some good music instead 😀 🤘

    It is a shame that people cannot be nice. The only person who opinion matters is yours (and by the way I think it looks very nice both pre-cut and post-cut). Do not listen or take any of those comments personally. It looks great really long or the length you have it right now😀.
