Yes, brave people like this exist. They have done the big chop or shaved numerous times, proving to themselves that life is beautiful no matter how you look. Some claim to do it in order to feel free, or simply to start their journey over again. Hey, some do it just for the style and heck of it.

Let us meet some popular natural hair gurus that have shaved their heads, and let’s have a discussion about the infamous question, would you ever shave your head?

  • Yes yes and yes again! I can completely understand the ladies who will never do this, it’s not for the faint of heart and it’s a preference. Your hair is a large part of your personality- we touch and play and fiddle with it all the time. To go from that to, well, nothing is a hell of an adjustment shall we say! I’ve shaved my head on two separate occasions and if I’m honest I’ve never felt more feminine. I realised I have a great shaped head, beautiful eyes and even beautiful ears (!!) and I respected the growth process and how insane my curls were. Plus, the sensation of clippers on my head for the first time was one I will never forget. Whatever you do, just be comfortably YOU! 🙂
