Hypothesis: bald hairdressers have a healthier relationship with separating their self-worth from hairdressing. Maybe such detachment is healthier, mentally. Reminds me of this essay: http://www.paulgraham.com/identity.html.

Hey hey Mr. Nathan :)

So of corse after seeing it's your birthday first off: viel Glück und viel Segen auf all deinen Wegen, Gesundheit und Freude seien auch mit dabei :D

For a suprise here's a fun fact about me that fits the bald barber story :) according to people i know and the designer/sewing school i went to for a little while i am quite good in designing and combining outfits and costumes even though personally i often walk around in comfy baggy clothes that can make me look oblivious to fashion or style. It's something I've always enjoyed and had a nack for but don't put to much emphasis on in my daily life for myself

Hope you have a great day and wish you all the best :D

That's a beautiful sentiment. Or maybe some ppl care too much for others and don't take the time to care for themselves. Just a thought. Either way, a very Happy Birthday to you ♉️💖
