I cut all my hair off. Well, maybe not ALL of my hair, but probably a good 3” of it. And when I say “I cut my hair” you know I don’t really mean “I” cut my hair, but I gave my hairdresser the motivation to cut my hair. And let’s just say I don’t love it. Let’s just say I don’t even like it. Ok. Who am I kidding? Let’s just be real. I friggin’ HATE it! I hate it to the point of tantrums, tears and sulking. Not a very pretty picture. [Sidebar…if my hairdresser happens to be reading this, I want her to know I DO NOT blame her. Not even a little. She is incredibly talented, and she gave me an amazing cut, and frankly did exactly what I asked.]
Even in this moment as I write this, I don’t know what came over me. Maybe I was a little bored with my “look” and thought a change was in order. Maybe I thought I was Halle Berry. Maybe I just didn’t think. Clearly though, a change was NOT in order. At least not this particular change.
So…how am I coping? Well my first answer would be, I’m not. But if I’m honest, I’m coping by wearing MORE jewelry. YES!! Amazingly, when I put on my favorite Tredz Half Moon Hoops, or my richly textured Tredz Triple Square Dangle Earrings, I feel instantly better. And when I fill up my arm with a stack of bracelets, or drape a sexy Tredz Heart Pendant around my neck, I’m no longer the dufus who cut off all her hair. I’m suddenly feminine. Badass. Sexy. And the sting of what I did subsides.
What is the moral of this story?
First Moral: Jewelry cures everything! Ok, clearly not true. But, jewelry does make you feel something…more feminine, more badass, more beautiful or more sexy!
Second Moral: If you think you are ready to change your look, sleep on it a day or 2, or maybe find a photo of yourself when you had shorter hair. Did you love it? If so, I think you’re safe to proceed. If not? Change something else that’s easier to fix, and slowly step away from the scissors.
Third Moral: There is no third moral. However, who couldn’t use a bit of retail therapy, right? Shop now to find just the right bling for whatever is ailing you!
