Back in 2008 -as I sat in a dark movie theater watching the Coco Before Chanel movie- I was struck by the scene when she cut her hair and uttered the above cited quote.
Maybe that quote stuck with me then because I was a young woman on the brink of change...I had just moved from Chicago to Madrid. But isn't it a little true? A drastic physical change CAN really reflect a great transition.
When it comes to hair, women can get pretty funny. Sure, there are the few courageous chicas out there who are unfazed by a major chop, but I think it's safe to say that many of us are pretty attached to our locks. Heck, I know more than a handful who even grow anxious over routine hair trims.
Here's my beautiful friend Norma from the blog, Papier de Norma. Norma has a lovely mane. For years, I've tried to convince her to change her do. Her reply has always been a resounding, "NO." In September, Norma moved to Paris. And guess what she just decided to do...CUT her hair!
Here are some of her hair cutting (and Parisian) snapshots.

I don't know guys, I think her experience might be the catalyst to my own hair transformation. But then again, I should ask, will that hair cut change my life?!?
