7 Stages Of Grief After Cutting Your Hair

The transition from long to short is more than just those few inches.

7 Stages Of Grief After Cutting Your Hair

As someone who recently had a significant amount of hair cut, though it is stil fairly long, I am an expert on the issue.

Stage 1: Shock

You can't believe you actually did it. You've never had short hair. What does it do? How do you style it? How will this affect wash/dry time? You'll have to readjust your entire morning routine.

Stage 2: Denial

I mean, it's shorter, but you can hardly tell, right?

Stage 3: Anger

WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY?!?!?! What could possibly motivate you to do this to yourself? This is not kindergarten. You're not discovering scissors for the first time. You want to be upset at your stylist, but can only blame yourself.

Stage 4: Bargaining

Maybe you should cut your losses and get a perm or dye it a crazy color or something.

Stage 5: Guilt

But that just makes you remember how long, healthy, and beautiful your hair used to be.

Stage 6: Depression

Your neck and shoulders will freeze without the proper insulation. You brought this upon yourself and have no one to blame. You know what? Your hair will probably never grow out again.

Stage 7: Acceptance

It's kind of cute, though. And weighs a LOT less. You can actually straighten it without going down to your waist. And also you remember that you look amazing in everything.

You'll probably grow it out for another year or so, but now that it's grown on you (pun not intended but we're sticking with it) you'll probably go even shorter next time.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.

In no particular order, I would like to demonstrate a little culture about the ways Christmas is celebrated or is not celebrated throughout five different religions.
