We’ve all been in a salon chair, ridden with nerves about getting a fresh new ‘do. No matter if we were cutting off an inch or foot, someone almost always attempted to ease our minds with one well-intentioned reminder: “It’s just hair.” But that’s definitely not true. Even if our transformations weren’t nearly as drastic as those you’d see on America’s Next Top Model, there’s still a lot of power behind a big haircut or color change. And Selena Gomez might be the best example of that.
Whether it’s a bob, bleached blond hair, or curtain bangs, the singer has done it all. In fact, Gomez has tried every last one of those looks in a matter of four months — the latter of which she revealed less than a week after reportedly completing treatment for anxiety and depression. Which has left us wondering: Is there a deeper meaning behind all of her epic hair changes?
Now, does that mean Gomez’s new wispy layers indicate anything more than a bang trim? Maybe not. But is there something to be said about a haircut being a form of self-care? Absolutely.
