When Ryan Shaver was shaving his head, he got it all wrong
When Ryan Sharpe was in high school, he took a year off from high school to shave his head.
He said it was for the winter break, but it was a time of year where everyone was getting shaved.
Ryan Shavers parents wanted him to do it in style.
So they asked him to shave in the woods near their home.
The next year, he did it on a snow-covered field in New Jersey.
Ryan said he wasn’t nervous at all.
He had a lot of confidence in himself and the idea that he was going to do the best thing he could for himself.
He knew the environment that was around him.
And he knew he could do it.
Ryan was the kind of person who would do anything for a cause, especially for a friend.
When he shaved his head on Dec. 1, 1979, it wasn’t the first time he shaved.
When Ryan was 17, he shaved a bald head at a barber shop in Brooklyn and had a brush shave at a friend’s house in Pennsylvania.
Ryan had a vision of a future where everyone had hair, no matter how old, bald or full.
In Ryan Shaving, Ryan Smith explores the story behind the men and women who have shaved their heads in honor of Memorial Day.
