8 Phases You Have After You Get A Haircut
Four Threads

Getting your hair cut can be a great or shocking experience. You go into a salon and put yourself into the hands of someone else, leaving you with no control. The outcome is completely up to the person behind you. Whenever they show you your hair in the mirror, you either love it or hate it. Here are the phases you go through after you get a haircut.

1. The phase where you love it.

This starts when you start looking in the mirror and leave the salon chair. You look at yourself and wonder how anyone could look this fantastic. You exit the salon feeling great about your new look.

2. The phase where you realize you made a HUGE mistake.

This when you get to your next destination and slowly realize you don’t look the same anymore. You get nervous thinking about what everyone else thinks and why you would ever do this.You may or may not cry at this point.

3. The phase where you tell yourself you can fix it.

This is the phase where you reassure yourself this look cannot be permanent. You think about how you can change either back to what you originally had or an entirely different style. You may even consider just shaving your head.

4. The phase where realization sets in that this is, in fact, your new haircut.

This is the phase where you've thought about everything you could possibly do to fix your hair. You now realize it would be easier to stick with what you have and let it grow out. You now cry just because there's nothing left to do.

5. The phase where you sort of hide the fact you "fixed" your hair.

This is the phase where hoodies are the best. You hide yourself behind the hood so no one else knows you don't look the same. You may also wear hats when you go out and tell people you decided to make a fashion statement.

6. The phase where everyone tells you how great your hair looks.

This is the phase where you finally start to come out of your cocoon and people tell you how great you look. You now realize you made the right choice when you chopped your hair off. You may also flip your hair back and forth for effect.

7. The phase where you finally accept your new 'do.

This is the phase that can start a couple hours/days/months/etc. after you get your hair cut. You have finally settled into yourself again and cannot believe that you didn't like it before.

8. The phase where you go back to pinning for new ideas.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
