Another white writer, Honor Moore, celebrates her long, smooth hair, which she’s allowed to go gray. Toward the end of her essay, she recalls, with irritation, a conversation with a young black filmmaker, a “near celebrity,” who suggests she shave a patch of hair above her ear. Moore is so appalled by this suggestion, which she deems an insinuation that a hairstyle change is needed to make her as cool because the filmmaker, that she seems unembarrassed by her hostile response, asking defensively why she would want to try this. When the filmmaker responds that it could be a fun change, that it would always grow back, Moore insists repeatedly that she doesn’t want something new, and that she knows it’s going to grow back but she just doesn’t need to.
