I shaved my head for Ashley!

My BFF's cousin, Ashley has Hodgkins Lymphoma so a bunch of us got together last night and shaved our heads with her. It was a GREAT time. I wasn't sure I was going to end up doing it, but I did and I'm so glad! I love my new look! Here are some pics!

This is my "before" picture:

And here is Ashley shaving my head:

I was a little scared as you can tell by the look on my face in these pictures. I was worried it would turn out ugly or that I had a misshapen head underneath all my hair, but I think it turned out really well!

Here is the finished product:


I think it looks great, and I can't stop touching it. I had a shower when I got home and it was seriously the fastest shower I've ever had! Although I don't really like that the shampoo doesn't foam up anymore. It's strange, I don't really feel like I've got my head clean without foamy soap. Also my head was really cold both in the shower and when I got out. That kinda sucks. I need to find myself a cute toque for winter. (I think you Americans call it a sock hat?)


  1. I think it's awesome that you all showed Ashley you support in this way -- especially as women, our hair is so important and being willing to rid yourself of it for a friend says more than just donating money or something like that.

    You look adorable, by the way. :)

  2. Way to go Devon!! I am so proud of you!! She is so lucky to have the support of you guys! PS. You look mahhhhvelous! I mean it!

  3. You are the kind of person people need in their lives. You seem like such an honest, loyal and supportive friend. What you did is truly an inspiration and just shows how much good a person has in their hearts. You are very brave and you look beautiful! You're one of those people with a nicely shaped head too :) *hugs*
