  1. I admire you for your decision, and applaud any decision a person makes to help them feel empowered. The pictures of you are beautiful!
    I have to admit that my hair is the one thing about me that I still love — I may have a muffin top, I may have flabby arms, I may have a turkey neck, but my hair still looks great, lol!

  2. Brenda,
    I am glad you like it. Personally, for me NO! It reminds me of : 1. My Jewish relative barely surviving her time in a concentration camp 2. After Chemo; for cancer 3 . A Felon! All negative connotations…

  3. You are so fortunate to have a nicely shaped head and nice ears Brenda!! Being a person who prefers to blend in, and not having a nice shaped head etc, does not give me that option…however I am working on some hats…at least that!!

  4. I’ve gone the other way. I’m letting my grow longer and am enjoying it. To each her own. Yours looks fine.

  5. I’m glad u feel free with no hair Brenda, but I’m like my Nana bc she always had long hair. Although I don’t braid my hair and put it in a bun. When it gets hot out or I’m cooking or baking I always put my hair up then.

    When the twins were young I use to sit for hrs and they would comb and braid my hair. They would stay on opposite sides of me, but I wouldn’t sit still if they tried to put knots in my hair or smack my head with a comb bc of tangles! Lol

    I use to go to the store many times with different colors of nail polish on. I forgot about it til the cashier looked at me puzzled til I explained why my nails were painted like a 3 yr old did it bc they did! Lol

  6. It’s nice. ,,,, I really like shaved heads.
    My sister began doing the same in 2020.
    Normally she would go have a clean-up every 3 weeks. That’s all in the past.
    It takes no time at all for sis to her thing! Easy & comfortable.

  7. It looks great and I know it fells even better. Mine is getting shorter as I get older and I am not covering the gray. My grandfather was 93 and had 20 gray hairs at his temple. My grandmother was totally white in her late 30s.

    1. Having been “blessed” with the curly red hair and freckles of my Celtic ancestors,I had a love/hate relationship with my hair for most of my life and never was one to fuss with it.
      At 67,I keep mine buzzed and spiked,not sure I have the courage to shave it, although it would save me 40 bucks a month!
      It suits you well and I’m sure it’s a great time saver!

  8. Wow! I thought you were trimming it very short. I didn’t realize you are shaving it bald regularly.

    I went to a pixie cut for the first time the year before the pandemic. It’s so freeing not to spend so much time fussing & styling anymore.

    I always thought I couldn’t go short because my hair is fine & straight. But I was wrong! I like to wear hats, too. Anything to just relax & enjoy life more!

    And I wish I had done it much sooner 🙂

  9. I love that you have shaved your head and continue to do so. Certainly frees one up to feel liberated. When I had breast cancer three years ago I asked the Dr if I would lose my hair! We are so often tied to it we don’t realize.

    I finished Anatomy of a Scandal last night. Was hoping for a second season but guess that won’t happen.

    1. I watched that last week. I read that viewers were clamoring for more. But it was only meant to be a short series.

  10. I love that you’ve embraced shaving your head. I bet it is very empowering!
    I went in the opposite direction – I have not had my hair cut since February 2020 and it’s at my waist. It was easier for me to let it grow and put it up in a ponytail. I’ve continued to let it grow so I can donate it. My second oldest grandson did the same thing. He’s already cut his and is ready to donate. I will be having mine cut very, very soon.

    1. Mine would have driven me crazy had I done that. I have very thick coarse wavy hair. When I was a teenager and let it grow out, it was so thick it was hard to get a brush through it. What a pain that was.

  11. I admire you Brenda for doing your own thing! I wish I had the courage to shave my head!

    1. I really didn’t give it much thought, or time to chicken out. I just thought I’ll do it, and I did that very day.
