“Too often we are led to make style choices, especially hair choices, out of fear. Fear that we won’t look attractive enough, professional enough, young or old enough, feminine enough. Feat that it will look like we ‘re putting in too much effort or not enough.” Starts The Breakup Hair Handbook after telling you to GO FOR IT if you want to change up your look after a breakup. The book pushes the fact that YOU belong to YOU. So do what you want and try not to worry about what anyone else thinks. Once that is out of the way, it’s all about choosing what cut you want and what color you want! In addition to great illustrations of hair styles there’s also all sorts of tips and tricks throughout the book – quizzes for if you should get back together with your ex, mixtapes, and ways to heal from your grief. I’ve never had a breakup (you kind of need to find someone willing to date you first, and that’s where I seem to be stuck) but a lot of it is relevant to just regular day to day life too. You can get to know yourself better even without a breakup as a catalyst.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
