Tell us a bit about your decision to cut your hair or why you went bald?
I cut my hair because I was tired of constantly worrying about it. I felt weighed down with societies expectations (as well as my own) of what my hair should look like. Hair maintnace took up lots of time during my morning and I was over it. I wanted to be free! So my husband took me to the barbershop one afternoon and we asked for it to be shaved off!
Do you feel you've changed for the better since you went bald?
I am much happier with my appearance. I have become more confident. I am less worried about what others think and I hold my head high knowing I have a unique beauty that no one can take away from me. I can no longer hide behind hair. I am unapologetically beautiful!
What words of encouragement would you share with someone who isn't confident with themselves as you are?
Women tell me ALL the time they wish could cut their hair but they wouldn't look as good or that their husbands wouldn't let them. I always tell them "Do what YOU feel is best! Only you know what YOU want. Do what makes YOU happy!" Don't worry about the perceptions of others. That will leave you stuck in one place forever. It's just HAIR! It'll grow back..and if it doesn't...oh well. Just be yourself!
Finish this sentence: (My) Bald is
my beauty and MY business!
