Customising Your Body: Hair

Hey guys, I’m finally finishing my trilogy! Today I’m gonna write about customising your body with changing your hair.

I remember in school there was a strict policy, about how you were not allowed to dye your hair but if you did, it had to be natural colours. Now me, creative as heck, hated this rule.

Why did the colour of your hair affect your education? Oh wait, it didn’t!

I remember one time I decided to dye my hair bright red, and (as I’m naturally brunette) my teachers tutted under their breaths and looked down on me.

But I ask again. WHY?

Because society automatically believes that your weird, or “emo”, or rebelling against the social structure. Why do they think that? Because it’s against the normal. It’s considered different and people still, even today, are afraid of that.

Around this time last year, I bleached my hair. I took a tumble in my life and I did something I normally would have never done.

(Me with blonde/beached hair, perfect for a HQ cosplay I suppose, but eventually I dyed it pastel purple, which then turned a green/blue colour, as seen below, haha!)

I remember my friends and people around me judging me on whether or not they liked my new look, but personally, I didn’t care what they thought. I liked it and that’s all that mattered. Like I said, I did end up changing it, but do I regret it? No. I really don’t.

I think it was important for me to undergo that change. Like a character building decision, in a way. It made me grow as a person.

Moving on, that does add to why I believe dying or shaving your hair, or styling it any way you want is important as it shows your personality! It helps you express yourself, and that is more than acceptable in my books.

What do you think? Do you think it’s okay to change up your hair? Or do you prefer a traditional look? Let me know!

This is me, signing off!!
