A lot of women are attached to their hair; our “crown and pride” and all that gist. So, I daresay it takes a certain level of confidence to fully embrace your feminity – baldie look or not. Speaking of confidence, one truth we don’t hear often enough is: ALL HAIRS MATTER – long, short, kinky, wavy, straight, or shaved – and that’s on period.
It’s important to note that some women had little choice but to go bald due to illness – Alopecia or Cancer. For some professions like acting, opting for the baldie look might be a big move towards acing a role.
Every woman is unique, hence reasons for going down the bald path will differ. Although, for many people, it goes beyond the ‘look’ or a moment of recklessness. Choosing to go bald can be a way of making a bold statement; a reactionary move against laid down societal standards of beauty. It can be an empowering way of breaking free from the norm and standing out because frankly, who made these rules, right? There’s no one way to looking good.
If you’re accustomed to grooming a full head of hair all your life and are considering going bald, know this: it’ll occasionally feel like you’re naked up there.
On a lighter note, people might suddenly get curious and want to touch your head when you go out.
The good thing about going for a skin shave is that you’ll no longer be extensively obsessed about your hair or what products to use. It gives room for you to actually take time to appreciate and highlight other parts of your body. If you want to spice things up a bit, grab a cute wig and go your way. No stress! Plus, maintaining a bald head is relatively cost-effective than say natural hair, which means more money for other important things (clothes, anyone?)
