This was so awesome! I shaved my head this year for the World’s Greatest Shave on 17/03/13. I have wanted to do this goal for over 6 years but didn’t because of my ex boyfriend. Broke free from him and couldn’t be happier with my new style! Felt great to raise money for charity and donate my hair to a wig maker for cancer patients. My hair was down to my bellybutton when I went for the shave :) I went into the place alone, knowing nobody and raised over $200 in less than 5 minutes all from the generosity of strangers united together for a great cause! 4 months ago

How I did it: It was probably the third/fourth time ever, so there was no "What will ... say/think/whatever." - not that there was much the other times. This time though, there was NO "Yeah, but....", "What if....", "Maybe [if] I....", etc. There was considerable procrastination, but that is still way too much business as usual for me, (another good reason to really start using delay-Busters like 43 Things, 750Words, Health Month, etc.
How I did it: Ive been pondering on shaving my head for a couple of months now. Primary reason being I am way too attached to the way I look. It has been a source of my depression and inability to enjoy the things I do have in life. I did this with the intent of working towards fixing my debilitating social anxiety, a component being hyper self-consciousness for fear of people always staring and judging me. So this was very symbolic, one of accepting me for me.I finally took the plunge today, and I experienced anxiety / doubt about it, which is to be expected since those things have plagued me for so long and have affected pretty much every decision Ive made.The iranian barber asked me 3 times if I really wanted it lol, I said yes each time and he just started buzzing really fast, it took longer than I expected.Afterwards I felt this calmness as I stepped out of there. There were still some anxiety as I got a few weird looks on the street but for the most part I felt liberated! for the first time in a long while I didnt worry about the way I looked, was not attached to it and everything else seemed a little more vibrant. Theres nothing I can do about it now and I know my head is shaped real weird but I honestly do feel great almost like a different person. The term 'self-acceptance' is finally making sense to me now.

How I did it: 1. I wanted to shave for a cause, so I searched for a head-shaving event for the St. Baldrick's Foundation. I couldn't find one that fit my needs, so I started my own! This is called a "Virtual Event" and works even if you're doing it by yourself.
Edit: I forgot to mention! I've raised over two hundred dollars! Huzzah! My fundraising page remains live at www.stbaldricks.org/participants/ranger1138. Read how I did it… 4 months ago
I just realized that its been close to 5 years since I last posted on this goal that I just moved from the I give up to my long term section of my life list. I need to be seeing this one more often as I know it is getting closer to the time that I should probably be doing this as my hair is becoming thinner and is reaching or has already reached the point where shaved bald would be better than partial. I just do not fully feel ready in some ways as I know it is a step that once I take there will be no going back or at least going back to the stage that I am now because for the past few years my only hair cuts have been trims in the back and sides so it is a safe assumption that once the center is shaved that it is not growing back. 5 months ago
I’m going to do it! Please consider donating to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation! http://www.stbaldricks.org/participants/mypage/653957/2013
Hope I’ll look as cool as Lieutenant Ilia did in “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” 5 months ago
How I did it: I didn't shave it bald. I cut it into a itty bitty fro, which is pretty drastic for a woman. I did it because my curls have been chemically relaxed for as long as I can remember and it was time for a change. I went to my regular stylist and she cut off all the relaxed hair leaving me with about an inch of beautiful curly hair. I absolutely love it. It's low maintenance and pretty darn cute.

I have had dreads since I was 19. Just turned. I am about to turn 24 and I cut them off last Monday. I got my hair done at a proper salon and had half my head shaved. It was awesome seeing my hair gone and also good to know I can do it! 7 months ago
