You know what, I actually like the way you look with no hair :)

Islagringo said...

I bet your kids are getting a kick out of this! But the big question, what does hubby think?

Anabelle said...

wow! good for you for doing something your passionate about.

Neanner said...

WOW! Good for you! You look great with your head shaved actually! :) I did the locks of love thing for kids that have gone through chemo. Chopped most of my hair off. I am sorry to hear about your mom. A good friend of mine's daughter just died a couple days ago from Lymphoma. Again, way to go on taking the plunge for a wonderful cause! We need more people like you in the world. :)

You are beautiful - in so many ways.

I've been reading this blog for about six months and I've gotten such inspiration from your creativity. I've sent several of my friends here to get inspired, too. But I've never been as inspired as I am today. Not inspired enough to shave my head (maybe if I lived in Australia...) but enough to sponsor you. Good luck in reaching your goal!

Hot, sexy, and 110% worthwhile! CONGRATS!!!

Just fyi, found this today and thought of you: http://www.shopgoodwill.com/auctions/Large-Lot-Crochet-Hooks--Knitting-Needles-4569685.html You'll probably have to copy and paste, and I have no idea what the shipping to your parts would be, but still...:)

you have a nicely shaped head! you look great!

whereas moi, if I shaved my head, I would look like a baked potato dropped too hard on the counter... flat, flat flat on the back

LOL!!!!you know what the verification word for me is????

LICES!!!!!!!
LOL!!!!!!!!!

Isnt it amazing how we get caught up in people's hair when were thinking about individual looks??

Last week we went to the salon to get our 5 year old daughter's hair cut for the first time ever. She went from knee length red hair to a fiery pixie cut in no time flat. Next week her primary teacher and I are going to work on donating her braid to a wigs for kids organization. Itll be done through the school (and local newspaper) to teach the kids (and parents) about how important it is to be aware.

The (lack of) hair looks great. What a statement :) now to find a fuzzy hat :D You can have any colour or texture "hair" you want ;)

Leon Basin said...

I like! :) How are you by the way?

Anonymous said...

My goodness..
It is all done!
WOW.. well done Purple.
Now, I want to see some really cool hats come from this...
Sorry to miss nearly 5 - I know how sad she was but I recall the day she did her own hair style with the use of some snippers....
Good on the boys - how fun that would be.
For once - your hair is now shorter then mine!

Three cheers for you.

I think you look great. Sorry about your Mum, but I think that this is a great way to honor her memory while trying to raise awareness. Btw, the boys look great too!

Anonymous said...

Looks great! Plus, it will be easier for everyone to admire your earrings (I just bought a bunch from etsy, without realizing my hair always covers my ears).

Karen said...

I'm sorry about your Mom,lost my Mom to breast cancer nearly 12 years ago. Currently growing my hair out for my second donation.

Love your shaved head, and the boys' too! You all look great!

Jennifer said...

Wow, that looks great! Not a lot of women can pull off that look--but the ones who can look really cool. (My best friend shaved her head during her first pregnancy--bad idea.)

misha - thank you :)

islagringo - he was a bit surprised that I actually went through with it... he thought I would bail at the last minute... so he's actually very proud of me right now...

anabelle - thanks

neanner - thanks for you thoughtful comments... and hugs for your loss, too

dee - oh... you absolute treasure!!! thanks so much for the sponsorship... it is greatly appreciated :) :) :)

jessica - thanks... and all those wonderful hooks and needles... yum!

ct - LICES!!!! about a year ago we got 'the lices' in our household... not pretty... believe me... I was ready to shave my head then!!!

queenie - thanks

lisa - what a wonderful thing your daughter is doing to help others! how precious!! I agree... one does tend to focus on hair far too much... I can't believe how free and unencumbered I feel without it

leon - aren't you a sweetheart? I'm feeling better than I have in a long time :)

sharon - YES! my hair is now shorter than yours!!! way shorter... as for little miss four... all I need to do is tell her that if she EVER cuts her own hair (or anyone else's) then I will clip it all over... that should do the trick nicely

littlemary - thank you so much

supernanny - HELLOOOOOO!!! thanks for stopping by to offer your support... much appreciated... hugs xx

kelly - it's interesting actually... quite a number of people have commented on how much I look like mum, now that they see me without hair, and can just focus on the facial features

anonymous - the earring thing is really weird actually... they feel so overpowering now that the hair is gone!

karen - hugs for your loss... mums are so precious that it just doesn't feel right to lose them :( love the donation idea though... what a wonderful gift you are making

jennifer - ooohhhh... hormones and a badly shave head are not a good combination, are they??? although, with the way your hair can misbehave during pregnancy, I can totally relate to the idea of wanting to chop it all off

donna said...

good on you for doing such a brave thing, you look amazing

karen said...

Exquisite: the whole adventure. Bravo!

Sam said...

You look wonderful and it's a wonderful idea.
Well done :-)

LisaB said...

Wow, your boys are adorable and so are you! You are so doing the right thing.
