10 Things That Happen After Chopping Off Almost 10 Inches Of Your Hair

Especially if it was super long before and now it feels super short.

10 Things That Happen After Chopping Off Almost 10 Inches Of Your Hair
Nathan Deutschman

I randomly decided to chop eight inches of my long hair to donate it to "Children with Hair Loss." This was a very bold move for me because I have never had my hair shorter than mid-way down my back since I cut it to my chin in third grade.

I'm glad I did it though, and here are 10 things have had happened since I did it.

1. Everyone mentions it.

"Oh, you cut your hair! It looks so good!"

2. You have to adjust the amount of shampoo and conditioner you use.

And probably save a lot of money because you're not using as much.

3. You have to figure out how to style it.

Your old hair styles probably won't work out with the new hair.

4. It's hard to get used to.

I keep thinking my hair is still long so it is weird when it just stops as I'm stroking it.

5. Besides the length, your hair might look different.

Mine definitely has more wave to it

6. You feel powerful.

You sort of get an adrenaline rush afterwards.

7. You question if you ever want long hair again.

Short hair is definitely low maintenance.

8. You post about it a lot.

It's so new and fresh! You want to show it off.

9. You start thinking of what else you could do.

Like dying your hair because it would be a lot cheaper now

10. It just feels good.

Knowing someone might be wearing your hair on their head is a good feeling.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
