Simona Kogan for Second City Style Magazine
Recently, I decided to go for a major lifestyle change after a spontaneous visit to a friend. But I didn't lose a ton of weight, shave off all my body hair, or suddenly begin spewing my favorite Shakespeare poetry out loud. I didn't even throw out every piece in my overly abundant wardrobe. This lifestyle change didn't hurt, was very necessary, and it turned out better than expected.
I chopped off all my hair. Now if you know me, you know that I have a rapturous thick, wavy unruly mane that only gets longer and thicker as I live in warmer climates. But it was my hair, my security blanket, and I loved it. It made me feel pretty and girly and femme.
Who knew chopping off my luscious locks could do the same? My stylist suggested if I'm going to do a major change (which I desperately needed as I was going through a turning point in my life) I go for a new look that's both modern and femme – long in front and short in the back. He was right! Not only is the cut perfect for summer, but everyone is commenting on how well it fits my face!
