I had my hair cut today, pretty drastically. I tend to not wear it down, ever. Mainly because of a long history of bullying and snide comments over my hair. I like the new cut BUT it was meant to be able to be tied up, and it's too short Now I'm panicking Ridiculous I know
I don't think you're being stupid but I do think you are still affected by the bullying. If you've always worn your hair a certain way it can take a while to be comfortable with a new hairstyle. You know your new hair looks good, keep telling yourself that and ready yourself for all the compliments.
Worst comes to worst you just need to wait a few weeks till it grows a bit.
Why? Because of the colour and the curls. Mainly the colour. I've coloured it into oblivion but it's back to natural colour at the moment It was so bad when I was younger I wouldn't even sleep with it down
That's such a shame you were bullied for your hair. These things can leave a lasting legacy but I hope these comments are helping you. Those bullies were stupid and jealous. Your hair is a real asset to you!
Its when people stare or look that I struggle. Guess I'm thinking they are wanting to take the piss. Part of me knows they are probably just looking straight through me and not noticing but it's such a hard thing to shake off
