This is Caroline. She is from Brazil and decided to shave her head to donate her hair to Abrace, an association of help for children with cancer. I met her one night in London and documented this empowering experience that shows that hair doesn’t define women in any way. It’s only society that tells us hair makes us look or feel better or that shaving our head means that we must be depressed or confused about our sexual orientation. For the longest time, women have allowed their hair to define them but our beauty is already there, and hair doesn’t add or take away from that.
