  • Cutting our hair is both a symbol of taking back what we have given to someone else, usually a man, and of being able to change the direction of our lives. And, it's something that we can do right at that moment.

  • You had a huge break down or a huge break up? First you speak of yourself and then you speak of your friends. Perhaps you and your friends have mental instabilities.

  • Impulsive act in an attempt to take control over something! Thankfully, I am not at all impulsive....

  • Not sure why women do that sort of thing. I havent ever done that nor have I known anyone to do such a thing. I do understand that if u were doing something for someone b/c they liked it then once u break up w/ them changing that thing. I know I was w/ someone once who didnt like make up so I stopped wearing it but once we were over I began doing the make up immediately after.

  • I cut my hair short right before my ex and I separated. I ended up actually liking my hair short, but wanting short hair had nothing to do with it. I also painted my living room purple. lol

  • I don't know women who do that. I find that to be a self-mutilating behavior. Do you usually do things to yourself that borders on mutilation? Why would you give anyone so much control over your life that you would mutilate yourself when it is over? This is disturbing.

  • Cutting hair is a far cry from self-mutilation (I'm talking about a new hair style, not someone taking scissors to her head and randomly hacking away). It causes no pain and is an excellent venue for a harmless way to make a dramatic change. Sometimes women need to make a statement to themselves that they are entering a new chapter in their lives, and a new hair-cut can be exactly what works for them.

    Besides, it's just hair. It'll grow back.

  • I have cut my hair in the past after a huge break up, but it was to symbolize a new chapter in my life. It can have a significant impact on how you feel about yourself.

  • last summer me and dh had a HUGE fight and later that day i went and had 7 inches of my hair cut off. it was such a liberating experience and i came home and he was floored that i had short hair.

    we got into another huge argument about a week ago and ever since he has been on the couch and i REALLY want to get my hair cut off again.
