Diary Snapshot: Shaving


Read the full Diary.

Shaving is the removal of hair, by using a razor or any other kind of bladed implement, to slice it down – to the level of the skin or otherwise. Shaving is most commonly practiced by men to remove their facial hair and by women to remove their leg and underarm hair… Historically, head shaving has been used to humiliate, punish and show submission to an authority. And in more recent history also as part of fund-raising efforts, particularly for cancer research organisations and charitable organisations that serve cancer patients.
