Is it time for a new do? How long have you rocked the same haircut? THAT long?! Is it time for a change? How much time do you spend on your hair? How much money do you spend on hair products? You know you could save time AND money on your hair by just getting a really good haircut? No. Really. It’s true! If we got a cut that’s easy to manage for our hair type–yes, THAT’S the key–instead of working against what God has blessed us with–we would save all that time TRYING (but never quite succeeding) to make our hair do something that we like on someone else–who has a different type of hair than us to begin with! We wouldn’t need a ton of hair product to make straight, fine hair phoouffy. Straight hair curly. Curly hair straight. Thick hair thin. Thin hair voluminous. Embrace what is uniquely you, instead of working against it! God already knew what would look best on you, so why fight against it?! Go with it. I’m not talking about coloring gray hair here. That topic is a debate all it’s own! But DO be supportive/respectful of someone’s decision to color theirs. AND they should be the same of your decision not to! We don’t judge others here on this blog. We love ‘em–even if they have a purple Mohawk with yellow polka dots! WE LOVE THEM! We are all friends! Period. Nuff preachin’. When you write the blog, you get to make the rules! Everyone should feel welcome and enjoy the warm fuzzy love here at Outfit31!
An older church lady (70′s+ 10 years ago) always looked so put together and beautiful every time I saw her, so I complimented her. She shared with me advice the Chancellor at Bob Jones University (many years before) gave the collage girls. “If your barn (meaning your face and hair) needs painting, PAINT it!” He was stressing the importance of looking your best to “go forth and make disciples.” She said she took to heart that instruction. She was blessed with a very long, happy, successful marriage; where she had applied this principle. Her husband was smitten with her! She said it was this advice that had also opened doors for her to share her faith with others many, many times. This makes me think of how often we talk about clothes, shoes, hair, makeup with others? Each being an opportunity to share our faith!
Hair is not going to make you ugly or beautiful. We can enhance our appearance, but true beauty comes from within. Share it!
