« Breakup cuts » are so common, almost every hairstylist has helped execute one. « A haircut after a breakup is powerful, » Chase Kusero, hairstylist and co-founder of IGK, says. « People [often] keep their hair a certain way because of what a partner likes, or because it’s how they’ve always worn it. When you cut it and wear it how you want it, it’s empowering. » That being said, it’s important to make sure you’re doing it for the right reasons. « When you do a cut out of anger or revenge and that anger fades, you want to make sure you still like the cut! » Franck, hairstylist and fellow co-founder of IGK, adds.
