WHY SHAVE YOUR HEAD? I’ve always wanted to do it. But when it was time, a feeling of anxiety suddenly came. Since I was a kid, getting my hair cut has been semi-traumatic. So it took me a couple of days to get it all off.

WHAT WAS IT LIKE? I loved it! There is a bad stage where it feels like stubble. I call it sharkskin. The next phase I call teddy bear nose. I dig that. It’s soft like velvet. At times I’d slide my fingers through my hair and realized I don’t have any!
