We make of woman’s hair a great many illusions about what she is and what it means, under the pretense of aesthetic beauty. Beauty pageants should begin with the shaving of heads. If she’s beautiful without our deepest yet most superficial cultural script for women, then maybe she’s actually beautiful.
