20 Characters Who Changed Their Lives With a Haircut


Who among us hasn’t privately assumed our next haircut will propel us into a radical new way of being? Like Schrödinger’s cat, poised on the precipice between banal, unfulfilled existence and nonstop awesome, we sit in the salon chair and take a deep breath. In sanctimonious recognition of her power, the stylist checks in with us one more time before that delicate yet Earth-shattering snip.

If you treat haircuts like a casual chore, and not like your blooming sense of inner conviction made manifest, consider why nobody is making a movie about your life. Watch and learn as these characters realize they were one haircut away from their true selves all along.
