Making the move

Making the move is a post written by Chantal.

After writing my post, on willing to make the move and cut my hair, I had a lot of feedback, some were supportive, some were against, but this didn’t stop me from cutting my hair in support to cancer patients.

On Friday May 7th, there was a brainstorming #tweetup to come up with ideas to help fighting against cancer, and Rita informed everyone that I will be cutting my hair the second day.

Saturday noon, I met Rita and went together to the hairdresser. Mireille was supposed to come with us, but couldn’t make it due to personal reasons.

So we went to my hairdresser who’s really creative and already knows what suits me best:

Pierre Salloum
Jdeideh – Facing Mont Vert
03- 722 309

While waiting for my turn, I was choosing the haircut and taking Rita’s opinion. Rita was also informing Pierre about the cause and interacting with other clients who were really supportive

He had to braid my hair and cut it! I remember the last sentence I told him “Nothing too funky, please!”


It’s not like the first time I cut my hair short, but not that…short!!


It feels so light now nothing heavy to carry on your shoulders!

And everyone seems to love them

Hope all the girls who have long hair and don’t mind cutting them at least 10 – 15 cm, will consider doing the same!

I want to thank all the people who supported me all the way… specially Rita who was always checking if that’s really what I want to do, and if I’m really comfortable!!

Have a nice week everyone!!
