Bald is Beautiful

Who says women need hair to be attractive? Who says that long, silky hair is feminine? Who says that bald can’t be beautiful? Whether these amazingly beautiful women are rocking the dome because they feel like it, it’s a fashion statement, they like the way they look, it’s the result of a battle with cancer and chemotherapy, they’ve got alopecia, or maybe they just lost a bet, these women are proof that you don’t need long locks of hair to be a head turner.

Their faces, their eyes, and their souls become so much more prominent when the layers of hair, hair that served no purpose save to the hide the person underneath, are stripped away. So many people, especially women use their hair as their security blanket. Chopping it, or even shaving it (if you dare) all off can be one of the most cathartic, liberating, and freeing thing someone can do for themselves.
If I had a job conducive to it, I’d shave my head in a heartbeat.

    I love these posts. I find it both moving and awe-inspiring to see how diverse beauty is. And as you say, there is something almost transgressive in someone who dares to be without a protective shield.

    my best friend and i have talked before about shaving our heads. i don't have the balls just yet, but i think it's because i've spent the last almost-five years growing my hair. it is now almost long enough to touch my tramp stamp! it has become my shield. when i feel ugly i can say to myself that i have long, envious locks, which might be total bullshit, but it makes me feel better. lol.

    i am having it all chopped off this week. :) i just wish i had a big pair of nuts so i could shave it off.

    I have given myself a buzz-cut multiple times since I found out I had cancer. I love how my head feels when my hair is that short.

    Being male doesn't make it any easier, but after the first time, it's a whole lot easier to do it again. It really is a step into the unknown!

    I had been planning on shaving my hair, but from multiple sides people told me that my head does not work for that, since it's quite long. I'm still not sure myself, since it is quite a big thing to do… I am sure I am going to get a shorter haircut again, after having it had long for a few years, but some unexpected bill has postponed that into the new year :(

    The women are beautiful here as they were in the freckles post.

    I know that I am very attached to my hair personally, and I could not imagine shaving it down.

    Some of my female friends have been bald from time to time. They all looked gorgeous. Bald girls are hot! I also think short hair or completely bald head gives people character. They also look more naked in a way, and that's obviously a good thing:) I wish I had shaved my head back when I had short hair, just to see what it felt like. I'm sure it's a liberating re-freshening feeling. Now my hair is too long. It would take ages to grow it back, and I don't like having short hair as the moment one has short hair one also has a specific hair do, and I can't be bothered with the extra effort of having to style my hair once it grows out again:P

    For men OR women, bald is sexy. If my hair thins and/or recedes much more, I'll be breaking out the razor.

    I was hoping for a pic of Sinead O'Connor, for me she's the original hot, bald woman!

    I've thought about shaving my head many times. I just don't know if I would look good that way. Who knows, maybe one of these days I'll get a wild hair up my ass and do it.

    Yes! Bald women (and men) are beautiful! And being bald is SOOOOO much fun! I wish I had more pictures from when I was bald. I think I looked really good that way. And it is marvelously liberating. (not to mention that it helped me stay sane when I was camping in 100-110 degree weather for a couple months the summer that I did it)

    Of course, I loved having long hair down to my hips too. Now that I've had short hair for a while, I'm growing it out again. But sometimes I still miss being bald, or just having an inch of hair.

    Bald is gorgeous. My friends who have lost their hair due to cancer have all found power and beauty in their baldness. And, I've loved it!

    I love this post. I shaved mine about 6 weeks ago. The one question I get ALL the time is "what did your husband say?!" Hell, he is the one that shaved it for me! He loves it.
