I was born with thick curly hair and most of the time I try to wear my hair naturally curly. As many of you know I recently cut my hair short and it’s purely because I get bored if I keep the same hairstyle for a long time. I have done it all – coloured my hair burgundy, got some blond bits, got it fried and burnt, grew it upto my waist length, straightened it to death and also enjoyed leaving my hair naturally curly– Yes, my hair has seen it all.
When I got pregnant, I decided to grow my hair long so that I can tie it in a bun when ever I didn’t have time to style my hair (Honestly, it was quite helpful). So I had long hair for almost 2 years and I got so bored that I decided to cut it short. It happened almost 6 weeks ago and I am quite happy with the change. I got 100% positive response for my haircut, everyone loved it and told me that my hair looks gorgeous. Obviously I was happy!
While people were telling me how good my hair looks, my office manager told me that my hair looks very professional now (I was wearing my hair naturally curly before the hair cut)- I didn’t think much about it and took it as a compliment. Later some of my neighbours told me that my hair cut looks very professional as it’s very sleek and straight.
After a while I changed my job and while chatting away with my new colleagues, I mentioned that my hair is naturally curly. Some of them where surprised and said that they could never imagine me with curly hair as my current straight hair gives a ‘I mean business’ vibe.
All these comments made me think- Why is a person with curly hair not deemed a professional?
Why is curly hair always associated with having fun or being crazy?
I have watched some Hindi films where the lead actress has curly hair and the ‘hero’ doesn’t show much interest on her. Then she goes through a transformation where her hair turns sleek and straight and suddenly she starts getting all the attention. I find this so weird!
I am glad that Kangana Ranaut is the only actress who embraces her curls on the big screen and changing the trend.
Personally, I like curly hair as well as straight hair. I will be bored if I stick to one type but what intrigues me is how the people get stereotyped based on the hair type/style/cut they have.
What are your thoughts on it? Let me know!
