Brace yourselves – as Rachel Zoe would say, this is major.
The last time Jenny Hoang had a proper haircut was at the start of 2009. Since then, the event management and marketing student (and Glow reader) has been diligently growing it out, with only a few fringe cuts and some minor layering here and there.
“I grew so attached to my hair since it grew really slow that I couldn’t bear to get it cut again – I wouldn’t even allow my hairdresser to trim it whenever I went to get my hair dyed!” Jenny says. We all know that feeling.
However, with her 20th birthday approaching, Jenny decided it was time to part with her long hair – and we were stoked when she decided to share her massive chop here on The Glow.
Massive is no understatement, either. In total, Jenny bid adieu to at least 24 inches of hair.
Twenty. Four. Inches.
What made you decide to make a big change?
“I’ve had so many people over the years telling me I should cut my hair to have a fresh look, but I could never bring myself to part with my long hair. However, the longer it got, the more effort I had to put into maintaining it – and at times, I would even sit on it by accident! I usually dye my hair differently around my birthday every year and I thought turning 20 would be the perfect opportunity to finally do what I’ve been putting off for almost 6 years!”
