    I always deal with difficult situations or changes in my life by changing my hairstyle. I’ve chopped off my hair twice in the past few years hoping it would make all my problems disappear. And, even though I regretted it each time, chopping off my locks did provide some immediate relief.
    Speaking of dealing with change, my birthday has been constantly on my mind these past few months. You can say that I’ve been going through a quarter-life crisis of sorts this past year. It certainly isn’t because I’m afraid of aging. Most of my anxiety comes from feeling that turning 25 means that I need to start being more responsible and conscious about my future. At the same time, I keep thinking that life is too short and feel this overwhelming pressure to be more adventurous, and just put myself out there.

    I’ve been wanting to change my hair color for a very long time, but I tend to over-think things and was too afraid that I would end up hating it. I finally turned 25 this weekend, and of course I decided that the best way to embrace change was by having my hairstylist Aiyana at Tintura Salon put in some caramel ombre/balayage highlights in my naturally dark brown hair. It’s not anything too drastic, but it is certainly different enough for me.Luckily, I’m in love with my hair and don’t see myself regretting this change any time soon. It could just be a sign that I’m making better decisions. With all my anxiety gone, I was able to focus on having a fun and exciting weekend. It’s funny how something so simple can make you feel like you can overcome any obstacles that life throws your way.
