Once again, "The woman with a million questions" has returned for another, well...question.
This time around the question pertains to women with shaved heads for which I happen to have myself.
It's a long story, but let's just say, I got fed up with dealing with hair a few years ago and decided it was best to just shave it off. It's down to about 1/16 of an inch, so it's not as though I am Yul Brenner, but I am pretty close.
What I have been wondering is if anyone has any advice for women such as myself travelling to Japan?
Generally, my head is covered 24 hours 7 days a week with beanies (usually always black in color) which has been what I planned on doing when in Japan.
Culturally, I am not sure if this presents any potential problems. However, wigs or growing my hair back in time for my trip just won't work.
So, I guess it is reassurance I am seeking that it will be alright for beanies to be my heads' constant companion even in a restaurant?
Any insights and tips would be greatly appreciated.
Hello questfordolma3207 san, Really short hair lady is rare in Japan. However, I think it’s ok you put on a beanies at restaurants or any public places. Nevertheless, you could be asked to take off that at temples or shrines. Yuki 由紀 JapanesePod101.com
