After the buzz, Baker took a selfie with his wife and shook the hand of his barber.

“To do it for a lot of people who didn’t have a choice about whether they lost their hair or not, it really feels good,” Lauren Baker told WBZ NewsRadio 1030. “And he looks good! I think he looks younger. I think he looks cute.”
