What is happiness? Fulfilling all your desires? Achieving all your life goals? Getting your dream job? Or finding the love of your life? Far too many people carry with themselves, the idea that happiness has to be a destination, and in their pursuit of the so called ultimate happiness they forget to stop and enjoy the little joys that life offers them daily. They think that if they wait long enough, for something to happen, only then, life will reward them with lots of happiness, and they’ll have a fairy tale life; living happily ever after. They never realize, that rather than waiting for happiness they can create it for themselves. Fairy tales exist, but you’ve gotta get up and write your own tale. Happiness is an ephemeral feeling.

“A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life”- Coco Chanel
A new hair cut not only changes the way you look, it transforms the way you feel about yourself. It makes you feel confident, radiant and rejuvenated. Hair experts believe that something as small as a haircut can be the spark that ignites creativity and courage. It can also be used to mark the closing of one life chapter, and the beginning of a fresh new page. So what are you waiting for? Add a little colour to your hair by getting highlights, go all the way and try shades like burgundy or blue. Get some bangs or get a complete make over with a pixie cut. Do not care about what others will think, do it for yourself.
