> For some reason cutting the hair is not an uncommon urge when you want to punish yourself or hurt yourself somehow.

I used to have my hair coloured on a regular basis. I have brown hair and would put a bit of a red tint in it. When I was trying to stop cutting and was in a bit of a bad place, I was due for a colour and picked out the loudest red possible. The hairdresser kind of kept trying to get me to tone it down a little, but I was pretty insistent.

Inside I knew I was punishing myself and if I couldn't cut, then this was the next best thing.

However, the hairdresser basically kind of refused to do that to my hair and ended up giving me a much more complimentary shade. Which I then hated because it wasn't harsh enough or punishing enough.
