The "Coming Out" Chop
Name: Olivia Angeli
"I had just come out as bisexual and felt a little lost when I went for a pixie cut. I thought if I looked 'gayer' I would fit into the queer community better. I'd looked through tons of photos on Pinterest to see how short hair would fit my face shape, but no one person or picture served as the final inspo.
I used to hide behind my hair, but chopping it off during a really transformative time in my life allowed me to focus on other things. Even though I grew my hair back out to a longer length after about a year, the cut helped me become comfortable with my sexuality and who I am inside, instead of focusing on the stereotypes of what I 'should' look like on the outside."
