When we want to turn the page to a new chapter in our life, we start at the head. Sometimes an unpleasant experience is the reason, like an end of a relationship, death of a loved one or something else significant. We get rid of the pain in our past symbolically by cutting our hair and changing our style that somehow ties us to it.

We can easily came to a conclusion that changing styles is related to emotions, ranging from depression to euphoria; hair is like a basin of a woman’s emotions. A desire for change is a sign of a need for independence, of forgetting about an event that caused suffering, or concluding a chapter in our life thus far. We start fulfilling these wishes by changing our style, length or colour. This part has a specific language and meaning in different cultures, religions and epochs. A woman with long hair is considered beautiful and attractive.

Long, silky and shiny hair touch the deepest parts of human psyche: healthy hair is attractive, because it represents health, youth and fertility. Although it’s true that this perception varies depending on the culture. The Maasai people consider a woman with a shaved head or extremely short to be beautiful. The Native American tribe of Navajo believed that hair is the part of the body that is closest to thoughts. So to them, long one was a representation of memory.

For both men and women in Japan, hair is an important element in one’s overall look. In history, it is considered as a mean of telling one’s status and rank in society. For women, it is their crowning glory and means of indicating one’s wealth. Hair says a lot about a person. There is a strong and often quite apparent link between character, mood and hair.

“A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life.”

Coco Chanel wisely uttered this quote, as she knew the power of a good cut. That power she referred to is the confidence and sharpness of a new look and feel. It has become synonymous with breakups, new beginnings and the transformative power of change. It actually symbolises our identity, it’s linked to Eros, to a growing desire that needs some direction. That is why it is so pleasant when somebody strokes it. The most fashionable styles are the lazily elegant ones, slightly messy curls, a somewhat carelessly tied updo or completely sleek hair.


The emphasis is on simplicity. Every second woman regards hair as a weapon of seduction, cares for it manically and by playing with it shows an obvious interest in the opposite sex. And which are the most alluring styles? The major journals of psychology published results of a research that show that men like long hair, because it is sexy, a sign of health, well-being and youth.

Researchers from a lot of University point to studies which supports the view that hair which covers the neck shows a larger capacity for empathy and encourages the alpha male to a longer-lasting relationship. In general, men dislike complicated styles. They prefer simplicity, messy curls, sleek hair, which is a classic, and styles that reveal facial features.

Here is a breakdown of few basics you need to know to understand the magic power behind a new hacut.

Going for a short cut

Chopping all of your hair off to go for a cropped look is a radical, very significant move! This choice is often made at key stages in life, in response to happy or sad milestones such as a break-up or promotion. Going for the chop signals starting afresh or embarking on a new chapter of your life, conveying a desire to be a strong independent woman who takes the bull by the horns. Your short is a sign of maturity and a confident attitude, as by adopting an androgynous look you show that you are not afraid to fully embrace who you are and are comfortable in your own skin.

Focusing on length

Conversely, leaving it to grow out or cheating by way of extensions to showcase XXL locks reveals a desire to be attractive and a wish for contentment and romanticism. Your locks are in fact, a nod to the locks you once had, as the day-dreaming sentimental child you once were. It is also the very essence of femininity. In any case, love is in the “hair”!

Getting a fringe cut in

Putting a twist on your cut with a straight fringe concealing your forehead also represents a need to protect yourself from the outside world by keeping a mini barrier between yourself and other people. You aren’t feeling shy and withdrawn at the moment by any chance are you?
