9 Epic Hair Transformations — and the Major Life Moments That Sparked Them
Sure, dyeing your blond hair cotton candy pink isn't as dangerous as, say, flinging yourself out of a plane with only a parachute to save you — but it certainly takes guts. (Have you seen how wrong an at-home dye job can go?) It's precisely that element of risk involved in committing to a dramatic hair change that makes a big chop or daring color experiment pair so nicely with a major life event. Both require the courage to let go of an old, familiar version of yourself and a willingness to make room for a new, bold reflection. (No parachute necessary.)
We documented nine such daring and beautiful transformations below, and they're each about so much more than "just" hair. Read on and be seriously inspired by how these women used dyes and shears to embrace their sexuality, adjust to life in a pandemic, reclaim their personal definition of beauty, and so much more.
