Are women shaving their heads out of Boredom, Cabin Fever, easy to manage, personal experimentation or self-empowerment? while living in Quarantine.
In the dystopian year of 2020, alot of unexpected things happen, Brad and Jen reunion, Meghxit, The Impechment and Pandemic to name a few. Women shaving their long hair is not a breaking news; However if you observe closely on social media that more and more women are shaving their hair off everyday. Hashtags like #nohairdon'tcare #baldandbeautiful are trending everyday on social media platforms.
It is widely accepted that long hair on women depicts feminity. In 2020, this is not the case anymore, this decade kicks off changing the way we preceive feminity.
I believe its a little bit of everything that making women chopping off the hair while in quaratine.
Easy to Manage
Just imagine how hard it is to manage long hair when all the salons and beauty supply stores are closed. You are running out of the products to tame the manes at home, highlights are fading. Moreover, it gets annoyingly hard to manage long hair when you have kids and husband at home 24/7. While others are enjoying the stay at home orders, women have gazzillions things to do and managing hair is the least important thing.
One Instagram user posted a picture of herself with freshly buzzed head. “I shaved my head because I thought if I didn’t I would go insane lol. I was just super bored of being at home and didn’t want bangs, so I shaved my head,” she said. “Also, I love it so much.” Women are not the only ones to shave their hair out of boredom. This quaratine thingy is making people do unexpected things just for fun.
Alot of women shaving their hair because of long confinement. I mean news channels are constantly talking about the virus and the new cases and death toll. You can't ignore the bad news because if you turn off the news, then everybody is talking about the pandemic on social media. Living a life in fear 24/7 is taking its toll on some people. Shaving long hair to bald head take your mind off of this craziness for sometime.
Just think about how many times you postponed that haircut, hair color you always wanted because of your friends wedding, vacation with your fiance, or new job, I can tell alot of times. People are experimenting with their looks because they are staying at home for 2 or 3 months. If the haircut doesn't look good on them, there is time to grow back to the old look.
Some women may think short hair gives them confidence, every style had it’s revolutionary moment; and I think buzz cut women are having theirs. Sometime, women shave their head to make a statement. They are tired of gender roles and wanted to show that women can still be sexy without hair. Sometime women think having long hair is a symbol of oppression because they are not supposed to have short hair; and now they are breaking chains by cutting it.
Whatever the reason is, short hair on women depicts power and independence. I encourage the readers to experiement with their hair because it always grows back.
