People always wonder what makes me do crazy stuff to my hair. From extreme color to extreme haircuts, I’ve probably done it all.
The last time I remember having really long hair reaching my waist was back when I was 11. A year later I got a really short, above shoulder length layered haircut. Till I was 13 I experimented simple layered haircuts and I would get them trimmed every time they reached my shoulder.
Then I gave angled bob a go. It was medium in length. The first time I got it the hair stylist sort of ruined it because her hands were shaking the whole time she gave me the haircut. It was just so weird so I had to get it cut again. It turned out Okay-ish I think. My hair grows really fast so soon enough I had to tie them up in a pony tail.
I first colored my hair when I was 14. It was light brown. Then next year I went for golden blonde though initially I had intended for a more lighter shade of blonde. I also got rid of my pony tail and was left with really short layered haircut again.
Things got a little interesting by the time I was 16. Well, once again I had a pony tail but this time I didn’t cut my hair the whole year. I let them grow till they were an inch below my shoulders. I also colored them ash blonde, something I had been wanting to do for a long time.
As soon as I turned 17 I decided it was time to do something really, really crazy. Besides, layered haircuts had become too mundane for me to even consider at this point.
Hence, I went for a pixie this time!
I remember I posted a picture of it on my social media in the month of April last year and some people thought it was an April fool trick. But obviously it wasn’t. I got a really short Pixie and I loved it! (Even though the hairdresser almost cut my ear because her hands moved way too fast)
At the end of the year I colored them Magenta. Yep. On top of that we had an event at our school (Which is Indian) where I had to wear a Saree. As far as I know I felt normal and people were calm about it because everyone knows I’m up to crazy shit almost all the time when it comes down to my hair. I believe that confidence is the best make-up, shoes, hair and dress you’ll ever need to really feel pretty. I fell in love with the hair color because it was bright and lively. It made me feel confident. So, no matter what I wore or where I went, I was always comfortable.
I still have a pixie, though it’s an asymmetrical one now. Also I had to change my hair dresser because the previous one was actually hell bent on slaying my ear. It felt like she was playing ear ninja or something.
So, to get a better picture of my hair journey, here’s an artwork that sums it up.
