My hair used to be almost past my butt. Once my ex boyfriend started sending my phone shit, I cut my hair. Well I was forced to by my mom because she wants it to symbolize to forget the past. Now it’s just above my boobs.
Cutting off hair in ancient Asia (Japan, China, Korea & possibly some other Asian cultures) symbolizes being banished or rejected from their home.
In the more modern age that is now, cutting long hair into a short cut means to forget the past, leaving the old and starting anew.
SO THAT’S WHY MULAN CUT HER HAIR OFF IN SUCH A DRAMATIC SCENE
now mulan makes sense to me now
i thought it was because dudes didn’t have long hair in the military
