New Year, New Hair
For years, I have a tradition of cutting my hair and giving myself a new do right after Lunar New Year. It sounds slightly superstitious but cutting my hair symbolizes new change for the new year, almost like out with the old and in with the new. Some of my friends would get a haircut after a breakup or if something bad happened to them. I know cutting one's hair won't change anything really but the act feels quite empowering. To me, it is like taking the initiative to leave bad things, and bad luck behind and moving forward to a brighter future. After an relaxing hour with my stylist, I feel like a new person with my new do. I decided a long bang will be different. Gal pals say a long bang makes me look like a different person, a softer SG. What do you do for yourself if you try to leave behind bad luck or bring about new change?
