Diary of a Shaved-Headed Woman Part II

It's been 5 months since I shaved my head.

What's changed? I have a new job, new place and am newly single. All because of my hair.
Just kidding.

Shaving my head was an awesome decision that I haven't regretted, even during my awkward phases and bad hair days. There are days, yes, when I miss feeling uber feminine and miss the extra male attention I used to get. But those days are so few compared to the ones where I feel fantastic, liberated and just feel normal, like myself.

Going back to the male attention part...that's the part that's changed the most, really. I feel like I'm the subject of my own social experiment. I'll break it down for you.

Pre-shaved head
90% of guys who approached me were Asian professionals.

Post-shaved head
90% of guys who approach me are white hipsters/burners/creatives. Since I shaved my head, ZERO Asian professionals have approached me. Yeah, you Asian pro pros, I'm too edgy for you now. Hahaha (yeah, I'm totally having fun with it).

Anyway, here are some photos of my hair transformation all within in the past 5 months:

The day I shaved it. 
Major awkward phase. Couldn't do anything with it. I felt like an awkward hedgehog going through puberty.

Current length

P.S. My mom didn't freak. She says I have a great head shape. I guess that's a good thing.

P.P.S. Folks have been asking me if I'm going to keep it short. Nah, my intention was to experience and have fun with every phase as it grows back to long, luscious hair that I oh-so love.

P.P.P.S. I'm really looking forward to this length! LOVE this style. I think I'll be there in about another month or two:
