Britney’s new ‘do: Is your hair a barometer for your mental state?

Fame pictures via CelebitchyFame pictures via CelebitchySome people wear their hearts on their sleeves, but pop star Britney Spears presents her emotions, well, on her head. Spears has had a very rocky few years, and her hair always seems to mimic her behavior. When hiding out from paparazzi during tabloid scandals, she rocked a pink wig. When she quickly married ex-husband Kevin Federline, she dyed her hair an unexpected shade of dark brown. After a tumultous breakdown that resulted in her going to rehab, Spears grabbed a buzzer and shaved her head.

When we see Britney with a pretty head of hair, we know all is well. Which is why we were so happy to stumble across this photo today. Apparently she had her hair done at the Nine Zero One salon in West Hollywood this weekend, and we think they did a great job! The non-forced smile Brit gave the paparazzi convinced us that Spears' upswing is continuing onward.

This got us thinking: Is your hair a barometer for your mental state? When there is chaos around you, do you toss your hair back in a messy ponytail and let your highlights go? Have you ever made a drastic hair decision based on your mood? [Celebitchy]
