here is something i believe. really believe. and it may surprise you, but i've seen too much evidence of it, heard too many testimonies of it. you may find it surprising that i hold this belief so strongly - you might think it is counter to some of the other beliefs that form my inner life. you'd be wrong, of course, but i suppose it's your prerogative to think that. and here it is: there is something about a fabulous haircut that can change a woman's entire perspective.
does that seem shallow to you? tough. it's true. :) a really great haircut, the kind where you feel like your stylist 'found you' somehow underneath the outgrown, overgrown or out of date mop on your head, can transform a day, or a week, or an outlook. i used to work at a shop, and the difference between watching a woman, however confident, walk in, and then watching her walk out never ceased to make me smile. most often her shoulders were a little squarer, her smile a little freer, and her gait a little springier.
the desire for beauty is innate in the human heart - we seek from the smallest to the largest things: art, music, written and spoken words, parks & gardens, wildlife, decorating, little girls who paint their fingernails, the sweep of the rocky mountains in fall, fabulous shoes, snowflakes, even the perfection of a thought, idea or scientific formula. (hey, to each their own!) so it doesn't surprise me that having someone help you uncover a bit of your beauty is, even if only momentarily, transformational.
how much sweeter when it helps reflect the beauty of the inner woman - the heart, passion and life. strangely, i feel freer to be myself when i think i look like my true self...
maybe this has never happened to you, but there you have it. it won't change your life, but a great cut can be a lot more than just a cosmetic fix. trust me.
