#62: Change my hair

There is something cathartic about the post-heartbreak hair change. With the hue shift, dramatic crop, or straightening, a post-breakup new haircut/do is almost a cliche. After a bad ending, people get the urge to change their look and there's something symbolic and cathartic about it: out with the old (dead ends, deadweight), in with the new flirty, ballsy freedom. After becoming single one can revamp their image and attitude with a new look for a fresh start and new identity. It's a powerful way of marking a major change in life. Though it's drastic, it is most definitely not permanent.
