So I shaved my head.

Actually I got Happy to do it because he's a bit of an expert, and it's only a Number 5 because it's winter, but the bottom line is most of my hair is gone and in the last two days I've been compared with both Imperator Furiosa (yay!) and Sinead O'Connor (not miserable enough, sorry!). Not posting a photo cos I'm not used to it yet, but there's just enough left so it's still purple.

The feedback has been interesting. Women like it, men don't. Except older men for some reason. I guess aesthetics are not gender-neutral or objective.

I probably won't keep it like this but I do like the way it keeps my hood up instead of being all slippery, and touching it is very pleasant.

Kind of like velvet. And the feel of fingers on my scalp is really nice too.

Basically I can't stop rubbing my head. :)

Would like to see the pix.

I've twice completely shaved my head (both times during deployments). Not just close-cropped, but shaved. Frankly, the results are hideous.

It's not very warm in Wellington.

I must confess I was wondering "why now, as it's winter there?" :-)

Because now is when I got pissed off enough with it to want to just start again.

When my head was shaved, I was known to stick felt shapes to the side of my head.
