The Amazing Power Of Getting A Haircut

Ok ladies, you’re watching a chick flick (I just refer to them as good movies) and the main female character gets dumped or loses her job. Her life is falling apart and she’s crying on her bed or walking in the rain with no umbrella, she feels lost, scared, hopeless….and then you hear it. The music changes as you see the heroine’s thoughts start to come together. The music picks up and you know it’s coming….


They are SO satisfying to me. Andrea Sachs in Devil Wears Prada gets a head to toe makeover and impresses her fashionista coworkers. Elle Woods in Legally Blonde jumps on her treadmill and studies hard, make-overing her attitude and mind. I LOVE THESE SCENES.

If you’re feeling blah or maybe you just came out of a bad breakup…maybe you’re starting a new career or you just had a new baby. (I chopped my hair after I gave birth to both my girls, I feel like it’s a thing.)

You need a confidence booster. Something to put a little extra perk in your step.

Honey, it’s time for a haircut.

It’s AMAZING how different you can feel just by getting your hair done. There’s almost magic in it.

It doesn’t need to be drastic, even though sometimes those are my favorite.

I recently took on a new job and am starting my own business. I have new black heels I’ve only worn once for like an hour, I have all this creative juice pumping, and this morning I walked into the bathroom (insert theme music: Natasha Bedingfield “Unwritten”) , I FELT like a bombshell but what I saw in the mirror deflated my confidence quickly. Messy hair. It looked like a birds nest on top of my head. Not cute. I knew I needed something new.

I wanted to look chic. Channel my inner Sophia Amoruso. There was only one answer: BANGS.

I feel like a new woman. Red lips, new hair, and I’m back to walking to theme music. This time it’s “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” by Pat Benatar. 😉 Throw in some hair flips and not only will you wanna tackle all your dreams, I promise you’ll be noticed. My husband is noticing me a little too much, lol, I had to lock myself in my bedroom just to write this post. I should go let him gush over me a little.

Remember that your beauty starts in the inside and flows out to your exterior. Heart beauty will always make your outward pretty that much more fabulous so remember to be kind, gracious, and loving. Let me know if any of you gets a new hairdo. I know it’ll give you that extra bit of sparkle you may be missing.
