I originally wrote this piece about 7 years ago for a creative writing class, and it has been a ‘living’ work since, as I’ve periodically returned to it. My hair has always been a defining feature for me, and in retrospect, it has reflected my journey as I’ve grown to recognize and represent myself authentically. This piece describes the process of exploring, reimaging, and redefining the self, embodied through a means of self-expression.
