  1. I had what can best be described as a plus sized cousin it for hair, I made my Big Chop in installments. Congratulations!! Also, it’s totally normal to feel like trimming instead of styling on a bad hair day now.

  2. Oh I so get it.

    It’s like breaking up with your hair, your comfort blanket and your long-hair regimen routine all at once.

    It’s almost as bad as breaking up with a long time lover. Seriously. I recommend spending the weekend in your PJs with gallons of dark chocolate ice cream and a hug pillow.

  3. I cut mine short gradually. Years after I now go to the barber every month. Undercut with a side-part pomp. To change it up a bit I just do the shaved sides shorter than normal. The only thing I don’t do (yet?) is a skin fade on the sides.

    bonus: I’m now addicted to hair pomades, hair clays, and hair pastes.
