My Soul Has A Hair Style

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)?
Spread the word, NOT the icing!

    There’s not much we can control about our looks. We’re stuck with our height, skin color, bone structure, but we can change our weight (sometimes) our make up and most easily and dramatically and instantly…our hair. Yup, our hairstyles complete us. They speak volumes. I’m really happy that I’m not a politician or a politicians wife. Then I couldn’t reinvent myself every time I felt like it, change the color, the cut, pin it up, shave it off, whatever. A bad haircut is one that isn’t “you.”
    Glad that the second time at the hairdressers you rediscovered “you.”

    A hairdresser once told me, “Your hair is the most important part of your appearance. You can wear a cheap dress, but if your hair looks good, everything looks good. But if your hair looks bad then no matter how expensive your clothes are, you still look like you are not pulled together.” I hope you got your “look” back, and that you feel better about it. I love the curly, bouncy look you have in your pictures. I just went with blonde highlights and weaves after 64 years as a brunette gone gray. I feel so much lighter and better about my appearance. Being blonde is my dream come true, and it’s worth every penny I spend on it.

    Michelle’s straightened hair says to me: i never did like my black hair i don’t want black hair i want the “easy” ie: straight white hair. michelle embrace your hair and let us see your curls.

    I think there is so much we can change about ourselves and its much easier for females, start at the top down. Hair, make-up, clothing, shoes (height).
    I have just put together a quick guide for people who are larger to select clothing that gives the illusion of an hour glass figure, if you are interested please allow me to share!
