Braina Laviena was the first ever model for The Beauty Manifesto back when we started shooting for this project with no plan or direction. Braina was patient, kind and a cat person which made everything perfect.
I love a shaved head, especially on a female. As someone who has shaved their head in the past, I can say it’s very freeing and feels amazing (literally you won’t stop touching it) and it really does look so badass. If you can tolerate the eventual growing out process, I say do it if you’ve got the itch!
