Rosalía decides to make a change: why do we need to transform ourselves after a breakup?

Rosalía has not been the first woman nor the last to become a change of look after ending a relationship -andWe have seen it in the past with Aitana, Jennifer Lawrence or Anne Hathaway—.

This measure as a tool to overcome grief or close a stage has been democratized, but what is the reason behind it? At magasIN, we address this question.

As if it were a tradition, it seems that doing something to your hair has become the number one step to getting over any relationship. In the midst of denial, anger, depression, fear and acceptance, we have to place the change of appearance somewhere.

Rosalía has done the same thing and has decided to show it at her concert in Switzerland, just when Rumors of her breakup with the Puerto Rican singer were beginning to surface.

The Catalan has opted for a transition to blonde tips at the bottom of the hair and bangsan image with which he would end his ‘Motomami’ era and also his commitment to Rauw.

However, our motomami has not been the only one to show us that a change in appearance serves to close stages. One of the trends most viral of the moment on TikTok speaks precisely about that.

After explaining that “hair holds memories“, many of the users of the platform have uploaded their before and after, in which they show their change of image. In many of the videos, the transition is drasticas in the case of Dixie D’Amelio, who already accumulates more than a million likes.

What is behind the phenomenon?

Although this “trend” has resurfaced with Rosalía, the truth is that it is increasingly common to go for a makeover to close a cycle. Many experts endorse it as a method to move forwardwhich helps increase our self-esteem and make an internal change.

It is no coincidence that as soon as the year ends or when a new stage in our life begins —a move, a new job, or the end of a relationship— We decide to dye our hair or cut our bangs. This new image symbolizes a break with the previous stage and can encourage us to learn and get to know ourselves.

Maria Jose Llata, director of Peluquería Llata ​​Carrera, in Santa Cruz de Bezana (Cantabria) confirms the origin of this phenomenon.

“Looking and feeling good is essential to be able to face a difficult moment in life, as it is a breakup. A change of look “It helps us to clearly visualize this new stage that we are beginning and to enter it with more strength and confidence,” comments the expert.

“It is a gesture loaded with symbolism, because we cut our hair but also that which we no longer want. Furthermore, giving ourselves some time to care for ourselves, in the hairdressing salon, will undoubtedly bring us well-being and comfort us,” concludes the Hairdressing Director.
