I’ve spent the better part of my adulthood switching hairstyles like I switch my shoes. I go from long to short to super short to blonde highlights to jet black and back to super short. I tell myself it’s only hair. Usually I end up with something I really like. I’m not scared of a little color or a bit of neck showing.
This last time though…whoops. I definitely had some switchers remorse. I thought let’s take this shorter. You see my hairstylist a couple weeks previously lightly shaved a hidden strip of hair over my ear. It was cute, subtle but still shocking if I styled it the right way.
As it grew in I wanted more shock so instead of going back to her I took it upon myself to shave off MORE. When the clippers made that first pass my eyes got wide and I said “oh well, no turning back now”. I ended up with an almost bald patch. I liked the idea but definitively not the lack of length.
Here I am a couple weeks later and I’m happy with it. I actually love it. I get compliments all the time especially from people I don’t expect to like it, like my boss or the old maintenance man.
It’s just hair but for a good solid 2 weeks I definitely had #SwitchersRemorse. Will I keep this cut and style going, YES. Will I be going that short again, NO.
As a member of a very cool team of influencers for Verizon Wireless I received compensation to share this moment of my life when I had #SwitchersRemorse. The story is true though.
Do you have a story to share about when you were drawn away by the shiny things only to find yourself back to where it started? Have you had your own “SwitchersRemorse?
