The next morning came and Isabella and the rest of the girls shaved their heads smooth again before put on hats and going to the beauty supply store to go wig shopping. Upon entering Kasey noticed Valerie and said to the rest of the group, ” Hi I’m Kasey. I’ve been expecting you.” The group then said, ” What you mean?” Kasey replied, ” Well my cousin Courtney did tell me you all might stop by, Plus after seeing your sister in here yesterday I knew you’d come in. How may I help you? It’s hot out. What’s with the hats?” Valerie and her sisters smiled and removed their hats to reveal their completed shaved heads and said, ” We need five wigs, please.” Kasey then said, ” I thought you said you weren’t shaving your head.” Valerie then replied, ” You are right, but believe it or not what you said inspired me to convince me and my sister’s to shave our heads.” Isabella then asked, ” How would Courtney know we might show up? Kasey replied, ” She knew once one sister shaved her head you all probably would.” Kasey then said, ” By the way. You all are absolutely gorgeous bald. I remember the first time I shaved my head bald, it was the most thrilling and Exhilarating thing I have ever done.” The group then said, ” What do you mean?” Kasey then removed her wig to reveal her completely shaved head. The girls then replied, ” Wow! You also look gorgeous. Do you ever not wear a wig out in public?” Kasey then replied, ” Yes, actually I do every once in a while and some people give me weird looks, but a lot compliment me and say it shows I have lots of guts and confidence.” Katie then asked, “ How long have you been shaving your head? Is there any particular reason you shave your head?” Kasey then replied, ” Well the first time I did was when I was 12, I heard about raising money and shaving your head for cancer research. So I did, after doing it the feeling was so great I wanted to stay bald forever, but my parents convinced me to grow it back out because they thought I’d be teased. ” So once a year I was allowed to shave my head for a cancer fundraiser during the summer. When I was 16 I got my drivers license and decided it was my responsibility now seeing I could drive myself to get haircuts. So I went to the salon every couple of months to get my hair cut and found a really nice stylist who was about 19. After my third visit to her she asked, ” Have you ever donated your hair to charity. I said, ” Yes. In fact I’ve shaved my head when I was 12 for charity, after doing it the feeling was so great I wanted to stay bald forever, but my parents convinced me to grow it back out because they thought I’d be teased. Me and my parents made a deal though, I would be allowed to shave my head once a summer for charity. Now that I’m 16 and have my drivers license I decided it was my responsibility now seeing I could drive myself to get haircuts. I then asked her if she had ever donated her hair or shaved her head”. She replied, ” Yes. I too did everything you said, But when I turned 16 and got my drivers license I too decided it was my responsibility now seeing I could drive myself to get haircuts. My decision was to shave my head again.” She then removed her wig to reveal her completely shaved head. She then said to me, ” I shaved my head and have never gone back, I’ll wear wigs so some people don’t know. If you were to ask me what I would do if I were you I would say, being bald is something I love and I may never grow my hair back again.” So I did ask her what I should do. She replied, ” Just shave your head and never go back like me.” So that’s exactly what I did. The girls then asked, ” If you were us would keep our heads shaved like this? Especially seeing our parents don’t know what we did. How did your parents react to your shaving your head and never going back?” Kasey replied, ” It’s up to you, I’d continue to shave my head, but seeing your parents don’t know you all shaved your heads, I’d wear wigs and grow my hair back and ask them later if you can shave your heads. As for your oldest sister she’s old enough to make her own decisions.” To answer their other question, Kasey replied, ” My parents told me you drive yourself, you have a job, your paying for your hair to be cut or shaved. If you want to continue to be bald it’s up to you. If you choose to wear a wig sometimes at school that’s fine, just for graduation photos and actual ceremony we’d like for you to be wearing a wig.” I accepted their requests and did what I did. So I went back to the salon and had the stylist shave my head. I then asked her how I would do it myself if I wanted to.” The stylist replied, ” Just take clippers with no guard and shave your head. If you want it smooth take shaving cream and a razor and shave your head smooth.” Rachel then asked, ” Should we tell our parents what we did and take what ever punishments we receive? Have you ever thought of cutting hair like Courtney?” Kasey replying to Rachel’s question said, ” It may be in your best interest to let them know to lessen the impact of their anger. Yes, I have thought of being a Hair stylist, in fact I’m in beauty school now and when I’m done me and Courtney plan on working together maybe even opening our own salon.” Katie and Valerie then had a thought come into both their heads at the same time, maybe they should become Hairdressers and maybe join Kasey and Courtney with both of their guidance. They then told the group their idea of being hairdressers. The group then told them that sounds like a cool idea. Katie and Valerie then asked Kasey, ” When you graduate Beauty school would you and Courtney teach us how to be hairdressers and should we go into the Cosmetology department at school?” Kasey replied, ” I think you two should absolutely go into the Cosmetology department. I think me and Courtney could definitely mentor both of you and help as much as possible.” They then thanked Kasey. So Kasey helped the five girls to find the perfect wigs for each if they chose to remain bald or if they just weren’t ready to show their parents. The five sisters paid for their wigs and went back home. Once they were back at home Valerie asked, ” So what do you all think? Should we all stay bald or should everyone but Isabella grow their hair back?” Katie responded first saying, ” As much as I love and want to stay bald I think Rachel, Valerie, Gabby and myself should grow our hair back and I really think Isabella should remain bald, because she pulls it off so well. It will lessen the impact of seeing Isabella bald. Besides we can Shave our heads again sooner than you think.” The rest of her sisters looked puzzled until Katie continued, but first Rachel asked, ” What do you mean we can shave our heads sooner than we think”? Katie than answered, ” Well the way I see it, after seeing Isabella bald, Mom and Dad may more easily let the rest of us Shave our heads. Problem solved We could be bald as long as we want.” Isabella, Rachel, Valerie and Gabby all agreed. So after Isabella agreed to the idea of her being the only one remaining bald. As short a period as that might turn out to be. After thinking it over some more Isabella decided to call Kasey and get her advice again as what to do. Should she remain bald or grow her hair back? Once Isabella arrived at Kasey’s house Isabella told Kasey what was going on. Isabella said, “ Kasey, I have a dilemma. I really want to stay bald and know my sisters do too, but once we arrived home after leaving the supply store my sisters decided that I’m the only one staying bald.” “My sister Katie said, “As much as I love and want to stay bald I think Rachel, Valerie, Gabby and myself should grow our hair back and I really think Isabella should remain bald, because she pulls it off so well. It will lessen the impact of seeing Isabella bald.” Besides we can Shave our heads again sooner than you think. I don’t want to have to be the only one bald. What would you do or think?” Kasey told her, It’s up to you. If you want to stay bald or grow your hair back. Personally I love being bald, but you already know that. So after thinking for a few minutes Isabella decided to just let her hair grow back. Meanwhile back at home the rest of the girls were talking about their future plans for careers. After hearing Valerie and Katie’s possible hairdressing idea Rachel came to the conclusion she might be a good realtor. Perhaps joining their mom in the family business. After Isabella got back home Rachel told her sisters her possible career plans. Just then Katie realized, wait we own a hair salon we are renting out. Why don’t we discuss with Courtney and Kasey perhaps letting them start their salon there and just pay us rent. Plus we could let mom and dad know that we have some fantastic future renters for the salon. When me and Valerie get our cosmetology licenses we could join them in the salon and own it. The girls agreed. Isabella told her sisters she’d just visited Kasey about the dilemma she felt. She then told them she had decided to grow her hair back. A week later Rachel, Valerie, Katie and Gabby notice Isabella didn’t look happy, so they asked her, ” Isabella what’s wrong ?” Isabella answered saying, ” Nothing.” and walked out the door to go to work. So Valerie told Rachel, Katie and Gabby she thought they should give Kasey call. So they did and she told them the same she did to Isabella. After talking to Kasey, Katie told her sisters that she thought they should shave their heads again. All of her sisters agreed exept Isabella who had no idea about this. Then Valerie had a brilliant idea. Why don’t we tell Isabella we’re doing a makeover night tonight and besides doing makeup we surprise her. Then we can shave our heads again. All agreed with this idea. So once Isabella arrived back home from work they made dinner. After they finished dinner Katie said, ” I have an idea. Why don’t we have a makeover night tonight?” Pretending that she had just thought of it. Rachel, Valerie, Gabby and even Isabella agreed. Katie then said, ”How about we do it in the master bathroom.” all agreed as usual. Isabella started getting a little suspicious about them doing it in the master bathroom. Isabella soon figured out what they were about to do and loved the idea. So when it came to who wanted to go first Isabella was the first to volunteer. Soon Isabella was shaved smooth again followed by Rachel, Katie, Valerie and last Gabby. Once all were smooth again Isabella thanked her sisters for this idea. A few days later their parents got home and were surprised by their appearances at first, but after about five minutes were complementing their appearances. In fact their mom surprised them with a story about the first time she did. She said, I was about 14 yrs. old when I shaved my head the first time. I pleaded with my mom to let me, She finally give in and we did it in her hair salon. That’s why we own a salon as a rental property it was hers. Just then Valerie remembered about Kasey and Courtney and told their parents about their being interested in working at the salon. She also told them that her and Katie wanted to be Cosmetologist and might someday own the salon with them. Their parents gave the okay and were ecstatic about Katie and Valerie’s plans. So Valerie called Kasey and Courtney to tell them the good news. The five sisters did end up growing their hair back for a while and never forgot that summer they had the bonding head shaves. So when everything was right everyone did exactly what their plans were for careers and everyone lived happily.
