Every time I walk into a hair salon, I hitch a ride on a very strange train of thought: I am convinced that if I get the haircut I have in mind—say,Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s side-parted lob, which I have brought to every salon visit for the past year—my quality of life will improve significantly. I will be healthier. My house will miraculously clean itself. People will think I am cooler, smarter, and more fun to be around than before. I will go to the gym at least three times a week. I will stop feeling like I need to have a dessert immediately following any and all meals.
This is all in my imagination, but a really great haircut can indeed be transformative. It can’t make you exercise more, but it can make you exit the salon feeling like a million bucks, which is exactly how much you probably paid for it. A good haircut makes you feel good, and that doesn’t mean your hair looksbadright now or anything. It just means that, hey, losing a few inches to a blunt cut or getting a fresh set of bangs might shock your system just enough to push your SAD into recovery mode or take out a new lease on life.
