Julianna Evans, who works in the performing arts, told New York Magazine that she wept for days after Trump’s win. “It was catastrophic, and like your boyfriend dumped you in a really shocking way with no explanation.”
Despite being dis-tressed over Trump’s triumph, Evans did not lose her will. Instead, she drug herself to the corner beauty counter and dropped down her credit card in a brave act of rebellion.
The magazine published a story Monday about numerous ladies in Washington D.C. who are dealing with President-elect Donald Trump’s triumph by cutting or dying their hair. This new phenomenon is being dubbed The Post-Trump Cut.
UCLA psychology professor Marion Jacobs, believes that individuals will utilize a wide range of methods for dealing with stress, and trimming their hair and changing their look is one approach to show or feel that they are accomplishing something over which they have control.”
Says Evans today, “Now, I feel like my hair says you can’t bring me down. This misogyny will not persevere. The bumper sticker for me is, ‘I am woman, hear me roar.’”
Indeed, salon hairdressers are noticing a palpable shift in the mood of their clients post-Nov. 8th.
“When you see that much blonde hair on the floor, you know something is going on,” Nicole Butler, who dyes hair at a D.C. salon, told NY magazine.
While many women across America are celebrating the return of the alpha male Trump represents and, with it, their own sense of heightened femininity, others feel as if a dearth has set in and have found, in some form, a way to embody that.
