Irene’s Haircut

A shaved head represents a fearless done-hiding movement.

Join long-time member Irene Weatherbee as she shaves her head in a Music Ministry fundraiser!

Come and cheer her on in the Social Hall after the morning services on May 27. According to popular culture, a shaved head represents a fearless done-hiding movement that embraces the idea of being comfortable in your own skin. A community of women with buzz cuts and shaved heads is growing under social media hashtags that promote the look, uniting people in dismissing societal standards and celebrating those who do what they want. With the beauty myth and images of lustrous locks imposed on modern women, this blatant refusal to exist for anyone but themselves is groundbreaking. The look isn’t new—women have worn their hair shorn since ancient Egypt, but with the current climate of women rejecting antiquated norms in favor of self-determination, now more than ever is the time for women to own their look.
