The Perfect Fit for YouPop culture loves to identify a person’s identity by their clothes, the foods they eat, even the cars they drive. These things have a way of displaying or revealing one’s identity, or even one’s socioeconomic status. We have evolved into a society that believes that the modification of one’s outer appearance is a public display of one’s ideas, values, and beliefs. Ever heard of popular terms like “preppy” or “urban,” or even “goth”? There are clothes, makeup, and hairstyles that fit these labels. It may be possible that your appearance is a type of self-expression that can reveal your traits. Traits such as hair is an overlooked element which includes, length, color, texture. Ever decided to get a haircut because you wanted a fresh start? Or, have you ever purposely styled bangs to cover half of your face? Your hairstyle could reveal your personality and could say a lot about you. There are many factors such as the length, color, and the curl patterns that can show your personality. We know that there are over a hundred hairstyles we can choose from and the quantity of choices is a reason why hair can define your personality. Ever looked a photo of yourself from five years ago and thought “Oh my gosh, I cannot believe my hair looked like that!.” Yup, that’s because at the time your interests and identity were a certain way. Today, you are an evolving person, and you probably changed your look slightly or very much. Maybe you have the same look but turned it up a notch. In the end, hairstyles can undoubtedly reveal your individuality and persona.
Your Hair Is A Part of YouHair becomes a part of a person’s identity. When you think of someone, you think about their facial features and their hair. It’s a part of them. When a person drastically changed their hairstyle, you notice it, and you cannot help but to think about that change, or perhaps comment about it. As a woman, I am continually changing my hairstyles, and my co-workers can’t help but say things like “wow, I love your hair” or “you changed your hair?” We tend to comment on this more likely than when we change our clothes daily. Phrases such as “dumb blondes” or “long hair don’t care” establish stereotypes to personality traits that pop culture has placed on people, especially women. This shows that hair is visible and people make suggestions on people’s character based on their physical appearance.
