I've always made it a habit to do one sole thing after every single break up that I've gotten: Get a hair cut. At all of those points in my life, I've always felt like a hair cut is a fresh change, a chance to start over, and the PERFECT way to make that ex of mine jealous.
And now there's an Elite Daily study that just proves that getting a hair cut is a healthy way to deal with a break up. They've listed four facts that have been proven true:
1. It's a visual marker of change
2. It's a literal symbol of shedding the past.
3. A new dew "makes you feel better, both inside and out"
4. The result is immediate.
BOY, are these things true or what?! I've had about a million different cuts over the years just solely because of ending relationships. They've always reminded me of the confident and strong woman that I am. That I will prevail over any hardships and bad things that happen whenever I'm dating anyone.
Let's just hope I don't get another one anytime soon, as I'm happily married :)
