The “Intentional” Haircut: A Spiritual Experience

A few weeks ago I was thinking about getting a haircut and wanting to do something different with my hair for the summer time and my upcoming trip. The very next day I received a DM on Instagram from an account that I had been following for a year…

The account is called “vibewithlove” and is run by a beautiful girl named Julia. Julia does hair, makeup, eyebrows, microblading, and more. I started following Julia’s account last summer when I was looking for a makeup artist for my cousin’s wedding. I stumbled across Julia’s account and although she was already booked up for the wedding I decided to follow her anyways…

I followed her because I loved her Instagram stories about the law of attraction, manifesting, and spirituality. Her page is great and I definitely recommend checking her out!

So the day after I was thinking of getting a haircut I woke up to her message about offering me an “intentional” haircut. I had never heard of an “intentional” haircut before but I asked her for more information…

So what is an “intentional” haircut? (according to @vibewithlove)

Well, It’s just like having a regular haircut, except you add a little spirituality to it. So first, you should understand that intentions are the thoughts you create about something, and also the commitment you have in carrying out an action in the future.

An “intentional” haircut re-wires your energetic field and the emotional vibration you send out (the energy you give off). Refreshing your ends (energetic antennas), releasing old and stagnant energy that doesn’t serve you anymore, and refreshing the energy you mindfully choose to attract and send out.

My experience getting an “intentional” haircut:

While Julia was cutting & colouring my hair she was asking me questions to think about such as what do I want to attract in my life, what are my biggest goals right now, what do I want to let go of, and so on. I felt like I was meditating while I was getting my hair cut! And as someone who meditates every morning, this experience was truly surreal to me…

Typically when I get an “ordinary” haircut, I don’t give it much thought. I treat it as a normal errand that has to be done. My experience getting an “intentional” haircut was very different. During the whole process of cutting my hair, I was thinking… not of what I’m going to eat for dinner… but thinking about my life.

I was thinking about what was causing me to feel anxious lately, how my body felt, what I wanted to attract in my life, and what memories I wanted to let go of.

Instead of checking an errand off of my to-do list I instead had a spiritual experience, all while getting my haircut! When Julia cut my hair I felt a weight being lifted off of my shoulders and I felt refreshed when I looked in the mirror after.

I loved that such a normal errand could be turned into such a magical experience so I thank Julia for introducing me to “intentional” haircuts! Going forward, I will try to put intention into everything I do.


If you live in the GTA then I definitely recommend checking out Julia’s website for her many beauty services. She has an amazing, authentic, and genuine vibe and I can’t wait to continue to book with her in the future!
