I caught a segment on the Today Show this morning while drinking my first cup of coffee. They asked several women with curly hair to wear their hair straight and those who had already straightened their curly hair to let it go naturally curly. The object of the experiment to see if curly or straight hair impacted the way people saw them and treated them.
For bald women the choice is hot itchy wigs and other head coverings to hide themselves, or face the world as a Boldly Bald Woman. I would love to see the same experiment done with bald women. The object of that experiment would be to highlight the emotional and social impacts women to be openly bald have on our hair obsessed society.
The Today Show invited tweets with pictures…so I sent my tweet:
#curlpower Curly…straight…bald! Not by choice, but living large. Boldly Bald Women – no more hot itchy wigs.
