In my newsletter last week I talked about hair heroes. I define a hair hero is a person that sacrifices their hair to bring awareness or understanding to a great cause. We all tend to have an attachment to our hair. Letting it go makes us vulnerable, jeopardizes our definition of beauty, and removes a veil that we don't even realize we hide behind.

Some people cut their hair off for charity. My friend Emily, is shaving hers. That's right. She's shaving her head.

Read about Emily here and find out why she's taking it all off tomorrow. Be sure to check back with features from Emily's big shave as soon as it goes down.

Good luck tomorrow, Emily!
