IT’S NOT JUST a haircut. It’s a lifestyle.

1. The difference in the weight of your head is EXTREME

You’re so light! Free! Easy, breezy, beautiful!

2. But it all comes crashing down when you try to get it off your face

You’re either going to get a little pipsqueak of a ponytail (that starts falling down after five mins):

Or this kind of situation:

3. You’ve had at least one haircut that has made you cry

You resemble a granny. Or they went too short. Or they gave you too many layers in an effort to make it ‘funky’ and you look like you just stepped out of the mid-2000s.

They’re weirdly concerned. No need.
