Ok guys, I’ll admit it, I did it.
It was the poshest, spoiled-girl kind of experience I’ve ever had, we can name it socialite stuff. I really felt like an it girl. I’ve had my hair cut by George Northwood, stylist to the stars, Alexa Chung, Gwyneth Paltrow and super hottie Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s hairdresser. If you want to mock me in the comments, go on, I deserve it! But before that, allow me a defence: I only have my hair cut once a year, and my beloved hairdresser in Bologna has recently passed out, he, the only one who knew the way my hair behaves and that has left me crying over cutting the hair too short sometimes. If a girl loses her hairdresser we all know she goes into some kind of a trauma, don’t you agree? So, I thought I deserved an anticipated birthday present (coming right up at the beginning of November) and decided to invest my money in a fabulous haircut. Long story short, I’ve walked out of the Atelier feeling like a new person (and maybe like Alexa as well!).

The haircut has completely changed the way I fell, making me forget that I gained a little weight I feel so conscious about (emotional eating I hate you!) and that influences the way I dress, making me feel constantly inadequate. When I look at myself in the mirror I’m very happy with what I see, and I couldn’t help but wonder how much external elements can give you an insight of yourself.
What is your experience? Can a manicure, a massage, a blow-dry, a perfectly fitting dress influence your behaviour? Do little treats make us feel better with ourselves? Am I the only shallow person or do you agree with me on the subject?
