My Soul Has a Hair Style … As Does Michelle’s, Cindy’s and Hillary’s! by Janice Taylor, Life Coach, Cert. Hypnotist, Author, Columnist, 50-pound Big-Time-Loser
I’m having a ‘nervous breakdown.’ Somewhat dramatic – but nonetheless, in the midst of a rather busy week, I’ve managed to make time to visit my hair salon, not once, but twice! The hair-raising problem is that while the stylist did a ‘lovely’ job, it’s just not me. And I am simply NOT going to be ‘okay’ until I am ME.
Which brings me to ME. Or the existential question … “Who Am I?”
I’ve read enough Eckart Tolle to know that I am more than my physical being. As Wayne Dyer says, “Begin to see yourself as a soul with a body rather than a body with a soul.” Wayne, you omitted hairstyle. My hairstyle completes me.
They say that 93% of what is communicated is non-verbal. With that in mind, what does our hair say about us?
Michelle Obama’s ‘straightened’ hair conveys a clear message; “Yes, I am Black, I have my hair straightened, and please note: I am not Angela Davis. I am measured, sane, safe, and it’s okay to trust me.”
Cindy McCain’s hair is first and foremost tight, blonde and straight. Vogue may have attempted to revamp her, but the fact remains that she is buttoned up, severe, and keeping up appearances. It makes me wonder, “Who is the real Cindy?”
Hillary Clinton’s hair is also straight, neat, and blonde. Hillary’s hair exemplifies control, and ‘highlights’ her straight-forward character. Her hair speaks to her ability to step up, ignite and blaze on (as do her pant suits).
And as for me … my hair, curly, bouncy and (when) boldly highlighted, says, “I do not play it safe, I have a unique point of view, and I bounce (back n’ forth)! I permanently removed over 50 pounds of excess fat 7 years ago, and Hello, World, I’m ready!”
How do you communicate in non-verbal fashion? What does your hair say about you (or not say about you)?
