Long were the days when women were expected to be a dedicated housewife and men were expected to be the breadwinner of the family. What we know of gender roles before does not always hold true today in this fast-paced, competitive, and liberated world.
Today, the society is changing and getting more educated on gender identities because of the progress that the LGBTQIA+ community has made for equal human rights and freedom of expression.
People, nowadays, express their personality loudly through their hairstyles as a show of liberty. Women do not always have to sport long hair and men do not always have to sport a typical barber cut. Take Halsey’s pixie cut and Timothée Chalamet’s wavy curls as a gender contrast for example!
