“It’s just a little rivalry competition,” said Garcon. “Hopefully fans can help me raise some money and let me keep my hair.”
It’s not like Garcon and Herzlich both have a head of luscious locks to lose in the competition, but Garcon says pride definitely plays a factor.
“I barely have any hair,” he laughed. “But, as a black guy, when he shaves his head there’s a distinct difference. I like to keep my hair nice. If I have to shave it, it’s all going to be embarrassing. It doesn’t matter who does it. His is easy. Mine is going to be a little hard. I’m actually going to have a barber on call if I lose so I can have the barber fix it afterwards.”
As of this post, Garcon has a super tight $20 lead over Herzlich, and with a month to go it’s anyone’s race. The links below will take you to the fundraising pages. Garcon has also provided a video, explaining that Tara Sankner is his inspiration. More about Tara here.
