The first time my head was shaved it was part of a costume for a Halloween party.

The very next night I went to a red carpet Symphony gala – long dresses, black tie, the whole nine yards….

It was at that Gala that I met somebody who became a deal and valued friend to me.

It was somebody who I’d heard about, hadn’t met her yet. In fact, she waltzed up to me at that event and we kicked off a great friendship.

She’s gone now but I’m reminded with this freshly shaved head, that Sylvia – that wonderful woman – was a connection that might not have happened had I not shaved my head.

I’m really comfortable with this – this isn’t for everybody!

I also know when people are curious about something that’s where conversations starts. And conversation starts are connectivity starts.

That’s why it’s so meaningful to me.

I’m not afraid of looking different because I know it’s gonna connect with different people in different ways.

So while a shaved head isn’t for everybody, keep in mind that – if you have an unusual haircut and people comment on it – welcome the conversation. Because it’s a connection somebody wants to make.
