The Top 10 Reasons Women Change Their Hair

When you look back at all the different reasons why you've changed your hair over the years, what would they be? A recent study explored that burning question. Commissioned by Andrew Collinge, a two-time winner of the prestigious British Hairdresser of the Year, the study also found that the average woman changes her hairstyle a whopping 104 times in a lifetime. However, Collinge noted that these changes typically weren't all that dramatic. To find out the top 10 reasons why women switch up their coiffures, just read more.

  1. Just for a change.
  2. Out of boredom.
  3. As a confidence booster.
  4. As a result of a breakup.
  5. To reinvent oneself.
  6. To keep up with fashions and trends.
  7. They were going gray.
  8. In conjunction with a milestone birthday.
  9. Either before or after having a child.
  10. Due to their wedding.

The last drastic change I made to my hair (chopped it all off, whee!) was for two reasons. The first was that I wanted to stop coloring and get some nice, fresh virgin hair. The second was that I was celebrating my divorce and giving a little razz to my ex-husband, who loved long hair and would mope for weeks whenever I cut mine. I like short hair and had been wanting to cut mine for a while, and finally doing it felt so good!Now it's somewhat long again. I'm wearing my first ponytail in almost a year.

I agree with all of the above, mainly sometimes I just need a change, but I am always too afraid to go too drastic!

roma, I also have wavy hair and straighten it often. I'm surprised "wanting what you don't have" isn't on this list. All my naturally straight-haired friends use a curling iron nearly every day and all of my naturally curly-haired friends straighten theirs nearly every day.
