Alexa Chung Knows That Haircuts Are Usually A Bad Post-Breakup Decision

By: Rachel Krause / July 14, 2013

Hair is so linked to how we feel and everyone goes for something radical after a break-up, but my advice if you’ve just suffered heartbreak or you’ve broken up with someone, is to not touch your hair. It’s the first thing women do, but you’re not in a fit state to make decisions that are long-term — you’ll have to spend the next four years growing it out. Don’t have a fringe cut. Don’t bleach it. Don’t do anything, because you will regret it. Buy a lipstick instead. Go and kiss loads of other people, but don’t f***ing touch your hair, as you’ll still feel sad — and you’ll have weird hair.

The relationship between breakups (or breakdowns, for that matter) and bad, often self-inflicted haircuts is indisputable. Negative feelings seem to beget the compulsion to reach for a pair of scissors like nothing else in the world. So listen to Alexa Chung when she says just don’t fucking do it, if for no other reason than that she has excellent hair and that she’s also 100 percent accurate when she says that you won’t feel any different but your hair will definitely look shittier. I know it’s tempting. Abstain. [Stylist.co.uk]
