There’s something very freeing and empowering about chopping off all of your hair. We may do it when something significant happens in our lives, whether it’s a bad breakup or we just landed our dream job. Sometimes we do it to cool us down during the warmer seasons. And sometimes, we simply take to the scissors just because we feel like it.
