As Cory's insecurity about his curly hair grows, Topanga tries to show how meaningless appearance is by cutting her own tresses, a deed she instantly regrets. Cory feels insecure about his looks, so Topanga hacks off six inches of her hair in an attempt to prove to him that inner beauty is more important than physical appearance. Her plan backfires when she gets a glimpse of her new 'do' and heads straight to the hair salon to rectify the situation. When Topanga emerges with her new look, she gets caught up in the attention she receives, and she quickly loses sight of the point she was trying to make with Cory. Will her friends be able to bring her back down to Earth?
