Sources close to Skrillex have leaked that the superstar DJ and producer has shaved his head for charity. Skrillex has sported the same hair style since the early days of his emo punkband “From First to Last”. Skrillex said “Definitely never thought of losing the hair unless it was for a good cause”. Some say that it might hurt his signature branding, while others say it will will help his P.R. Branding is important to any business and especially helps. “The American Marketing Association (AMA) defines a brand as a “name, term, sign, symbol or design, or acombination of them intended to identify the goods and services of one seller or group of sellers and to differentiate them from those of other sellers.” Skrillex has had a huge followingwith his hair, that includes a tumblr dedicated to him called: Girls that Look like Skrillex. We recently interviewed a fan on how his new haircut might affect his future
“ Skrillex does not have anything to worry about for shaving his head, as long as he continues making amazing dubstep and adding those signature drop. We love that he is so involved in the techno community and hope is always giving back to the community like he is here”
Many other artists included on Skrillex’s own Owsla label might soon be following suit. Kill the Noise frontman Jake Stanczak noted that “it would look good on him while still contributing to society” while Dillon Francis said that his hair was too precious to him to cut for anybody.
