About Lurie Daniel Favors, Esq.


  1. It occurred to me that as a man, I don’t even sport a “natural” hair style myself. I shave my head bald. I don’t care for my natural state of a receding hair line, expanding bald spot, and salt and pepper color. Perhaps if I lived in a culture where natural signs of aging were respected for what they are, signs of maturity, I might allow my hair to grow out my head, naturally and enjoy the new found respect my advancing years would offer

    Alas we live in a America where young is prized and a eurocentric standard of beauty persists.
