Everyone knows that the way you wear your hair has everything to do with your personal style and fashion. In recent years, both guys and gals, have been using their hair, or lack of it, to make the boldest of fashion statements for a good cause.
Amber Rose, Willow Smith, and Cassie have been known for their edginess with their shaved tresses. Following their suit, “Flavor of Love 3″ contestant Cristal Steverson shaved her head in honor of her 30th birthday, but for a reason more noble than the others. On June 12th, she shaved her head and donated her brunette locks to Locks of Love, “a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis.”
On her blog she wrote:
Happy Birthday Baldy!
On Tuesday, June 12, 2012, I am shaving my head completely -Mr. Clean- bald.
I’ve been blessed to have a lot of hair. I’ve had it all of my life & I realize that I take it for granted. There are people with hair that they adore that lose it to cancer treatments, skin conditions & various diseases… & with it goes their self-cofidence & often their self-esteem as well.
And then there is me… head full of long, thick hair that I hardly comb & always complain about. I realized that I have taken for granted what God has given me. I figured if I am not going to appreciate it then I should give it to someone that will. On my 30th birthday, June 12, 2012, I will shave my head. BALD. Like with a razor. I’m donating it to Locks of Love.
I’m sure I’m going to look like a freshly boiled albino egg.
Steverson seems to have completely embraced her new look, and wears it proudly. So what does she wear with her new do?
Here, in a picture tweeted by her, she wears a light cropped denim jacket and a skin tight white skirt. Minimal jewelry and a sultry smokey eye complete the look for a night on the town. Her simple look compliments her drastic new hair, which is the best way to highlight a drastic hairstyle in a subtly chic way.
Steverson’s decision to donate her hair is inspiring and noble. Do you think the look fits her?Tags: Cristal Steverson, flavor of love, shaved head
