It’s amazing how hairstyle psychology plays a part in our everyday lives. Women, for example, so often choose to cut their hair as an obvious physical indicator to the world that they are reasserting their independence. Their hair cut reflects the severing (cutting) of the relationship. There is hairstyle psychology at play!
I met a really good friend for lunch and she looked wonderful even though she is going through a divorce, is trying to buy a house, hates her job, would like to throttle her boss, and is thoroughly depressed!
Janice was tired and feeling that life was a struggle but still managed to look really good in a cream soft-cotton top and light fawn suede trousers. The coral lipstick added a welcome touch of colour to what would have been an extremely pale face but the icing on the cake was a new softer hairstyle.
Janice is a typical Natural Spring blonde; she looks fabulous in cut-off denim shorts, skimpy T-shirt, trainers, no socks, brown legs, just a slick of lipstick or lipgloss, and with free-flowing hair. So, when Janice had her hair cut into a curt bob a couple of months previously, it was totally at odds with her innate personality – yet it obviously reflected how she felt about her life at that time!
So it was so good to see the bob hairstyle growing out and into freedom again – this is the Janice I know and love.

Just watch those people who live their lives in the public eye, celebrities et al. It’s quite amazing how women so often choose to cut their hair as an obvious physical indicator to the world that they are reasserting their independence. Their hair cut reflects the severing (cutting) of the relationship.
They’re saying, “I’m gonna chop that man right outta my life!”
