When Shirley Raines first began working with the homeless, it was through a charity that provided Los Angeles’ Skid Row with food. She then began to notice the women were more interested in her colorful hair and makeup than anything else.
In an interview with Insider, Shirley said: ‘As we passed out food, the women were more interested in my hair color and my makeup. And they used to compliment me, going “oh my god, we love your makeup” or “we love your hair color” or “you smell so good.”
‘After a couple months, it hit me, that “wow, women are still interested in these things”, and I realized that at their core, they’re still women.’
