Sometimes, one reaches a point in life where a change is desirable.
It might be a major change, wherein one considers a change in vocation or lifestyle, and one must weigh a number of important factors. More often, we face minor changes that, though important to us in a very immediate sense, will not alter the world in any great or meaningful way. One of the latter changes might be a change in hairstyle. Long and wavy, short and spiky, coloured in some interesting fashion, there are numerous ways we can alter this very basic part of our appearance. One such choice is the almost zen-like state of hairlessness one achieves by shaving one's head.
Small as this type of change may be (in the universal scheme of things), it's still a personal and (for some) involved decision which affects people in a direct way. In order to assist those considering such a choice, this document looks at many questions that you may be asking.
Sometimes people are under the impression that shaving their head will fundamentally change something in their life. This is unlikely. A hairstyle rarely makes any real difference to the world. Whatever your reason for wanting to shave your head, please remember that it's really just a haircut.
A lot of people who want to shave their heads hesitate and delay because they are concerned that they will get a negative reaction from people they know. They imagine that they might look ridiculous, and that people might laugh at them or insult them.
I've received hundreds of emails from people who have shaved their heads, and virtually all of them have gotten nothing but positive responses about their new bald looks. It's unlikely that they all looked fabulous, but it's understandable that they all got positive comments. Consider:
That doesn't mean that most people will like your shaved head, or think it looks better than when you had hair. But really, you can't expect to please everyone. If you're happy with your appearance, that's all that really counts.
There's no way to tell ahead of time how you'll look with a clearcut scalp, but I do have a suggestion. Instead of going all the way at one go, try going in stages.
Hopefully, this little Q&A will help you in deciding if you really want to shave your head. If you still have questions, and you want my opinion (for all that's worth), feel free to contact me.
Ultimately, though, it's your decision, and you're the only person who can make it. Shave if you want, or don't shave, it's really only important to you in the end. Take power from that.
