This Islamabadi Girl Shaved Her Head And WOW, She's Officially Hair Goals

By Rameeza Ahmad | 23 Jun, 2018

If there’s one thing that Pakistanis consider a “gehna” for their women, it’s their hair. Often considered their “crowning glory,” long tresses are a point of attraction in many Pakistani women. However, all that’s changing, slowly but surely. And it’s all thanks to certain women breaking the norm of socially accepted “hair goals.”

Undoubtedly, this is an incredibly brave move on Areej’s part. Ever since Areej has shaved off her long locks, she says her life has changed for the better.

She first announced the move on Twitter

Moreover, Areej listed all the benefits that come with having a buzz cut.

It’s a total time saver!

And not to mention super pocket-friendly.

On being asked about her parent’s reaction, Areej revealed it was her mother who gave her the idea for a buzz cut and her father who did the honor of shaving her head!

While Areej and her family are super stoked about her new hairdo, a lot of the reactions she’s gotten aren’t the…best.

But she takes it all in her stride because she knows she looks GREAT!

And feels hella empowered in her buzz cut!

And honestly, we can’t disagree. What a beauty.
