Hair

*A story of identity and transformation as told through HAIR.*
The moment we are born we share an intimate connection to our hair. When a young woman sets out to shave her head to rid herself of the weight that was controlling her life, she discovered the birth of a new mind. She goes from a rib-eating, beer-drinking woman to one that chooses tea over cocktails and swaps meat for spinach. The new person that was born was suddenly mindful of life, thankful for the present and hopeful for the future. The veil wasn’t lifted it was completely cut off. As a result of her transformation, she decides to throw a fundraising event in LA to empower women through shaving off their own locks. What she finds is that hair has a much deeper meaning than that of looks, and it affects men and women. It is part of our identity. What role do other people play in the perception of our hair, how far can our identity grow? To what lengths are we willing to go to either break the mold or to succumb to society's pre-determined perception of ones inner beauty? What happens if we shave our hair off? If we lose it from cancer? How does a new hair look change your outlook? Is your hair an extension of you, or are you an extension of your hair?
