Turning Heads

To show bald can be beautiful, cancer survivor Jackson Hunsicker assembled photos—and thoughts—of women who lost their hair to chemo.

DIKLA BENZEEVI (left, top): "Before we took this photograph, I'd never been out bald before in public. It felt good not to have a wig.... We were at Venice Beach and there are so many wierdos that I wasn't self-conscious."

MELISSA ETHERIDGE: "My stylist found me that jacket. It had a nice high collar and it made my head look grand! So I thought, Okay, I'll go to the Grammys bald! I was so cool under the hot lights. It felt great. And the energy you feel when you don't have anything on your head!"
