I recently read an article about Model Ruth Bell and why she decided to shave her head on TeenVogue. It's not always easy in the modeling world especially if you have to give up on your own style preference and to accommodate to the runway.
Ruth Bell landed on a McQueen campaign and the one condition she has to follow to actually get the job is to buzz her head. Without thinking twice she shaved her long hair. Surprisingly, she really likes the cut and felt more free. One statement from the interview that has caught my attention was this.

Society thinks long hair equates WITH ‘pretty,’ but I never really had an attachment to mine — I’ve always considered hair more of a nuisance than something that I liked to have and, you know, do things with.

It's true society has shape our mind to thinking long hair is beautiful and attractive while short hair is not as pretty. In another sense, I think long hair is like a security blanket. It's something you've been with for a long time and it's hard to let go.
So, the one thing I learned from this interview is don't let society define what is pretty!

Awwwwwwwww. @tiffany1922 @jazziejazz @Carajo99 @TammyPoore @Animaniafreak @HairConfetti. You guys have no idea how your comments have helped me right now. My hair used to be long but it got damaged during an incident and I had to cut it really short. I started feeling incomplete and I was just dying for my hair to grow back. You guys made me realize I need to accept myself. And now, looking in the mirror, I think it actually fits me :-) :-) :-) ...
