In 2014 I really wanted to do a big head shaving party as soon as it started to fall out. I had held out with some hopes that it wouldn't fall out, although, with Carbo/Taxol your hair falls out. It is almost a guarantee. I knew the day that it started to fall out I wanted to shave it. Well, the day that it started to fall out I was sitting in the hospital. I was horrified. I remember that my friend Cindy, of Cindy Johnson Boudoir Photography, offered to come into the hospital and do a photoshoot there and help find someone to come and shave it. I was sick and just not up for it so we never did. I ultimately organized a head shaving party a week or so later in my hometown where my previous neighbor did the cutting so that we could donate my hair, a high school friend came and took photographs, and I had family and friends come out. Wylee got to do a few cuts and it was an amazing experience.
Vinnys Barbershop & Shaving Parlor in Beechgrove did an amazing job! Vinny set us up to come in after hours and basically take over the shop. We came in with twenty-three people total, including myself, for the head shaving party. We told Vinny that we wanted to let Wylee make a few cuts. He went above and beyond anything we ever expected! He set Wylee up on a stool, got him in a jacket, and had him shave my entire head! When Wylee was finished Vinny set me up with a great close head shave and then it was Wylee's turn to get his hair cut and even have a great design! This won't be our last trip to Vinnys!
A bonus to having two amazing friends, who happen to be photographers, is that you end up with some pretty fabulous pictures! There are such amazing pictures from the evening and I wanted to share this experience with you. I am so grateful to have an amazing group of friends I can call family here in Indianapolis. They made this night amazing!
