Shorn for a Good Cause

David hadn’t had his hair cut since November 2003. I really liked his 70s hippy/Italian soccer star look, but he recently decided to donate thirteen inches of his hair to a charity that makes wigs for children undergoing chemotherapy.
The photo on the left is a self-portrait David took of himself the morning before his haircut. I took the one on the right last night. Salon magazine – a publication Pam writes for – did a photo shoot on David’s transformation, and he’s going to be featured in their upcoming men’s issue.
Right after the haircut, David looked like a preppy New Englander. It was a shock. Then he washed his hair and turned into a member of A Flock of Seagulls, circa 1982. (Who would have guessed that lead vocalist Mike Score started out as a hair stylist?)
David took to wearing a hat for a few days to tame the surge, but now his hair has settled down some and he’s starting to look like himself again.
