Our Favorite Bold Brown Bald Beauties

Black women love hair, which is why when you see one of us walking around without it, it makes a statement far more bold than a woman of another race stepping out with a buzz cut. For years, long hair and light skin were the key to being seen as an attractive African American woman but, thankfully, times have changed and the women listed here have flipped that antiquated beauty statement completely on its head, displaying their brown bald heads with pride and radiating beauty and confidence.

Images matter and we’re thankful for the messages these brown beauties are sending when they show off their heads and let us know without a shadow of a doubt they are not their hair. Click through to see our favorite brown bald beauties.

What an honor to collaborate with such amazing woman and shares our relationship with our hair and how it affects us throughout our daily lives. As @holisticitilyfe stated, "A woman of color or any race, we understand that everyone has a different perception of what their hair means to them. My hair is a representation of who I am, but as India Arie stated "I am not my #Hair.' We are surrounded by #beauty standards and comparisons that can at times make us question our #selfimage, causing us to constantly alter ourselves to fit in. The perception of hair has become an obstacle for some Black woman." Yesterday in #brooklyn, I had the absolute pleasure of partnering with the #dopesquad @afroista @ancestralstrands @cubiclesandcurls @healthyhairtotoe @imabaldie @tsymonemakeu Thanks for helping me bring my vision to life. You all shared your stories with such honesty and #love. Our attendees left knowing that as women we should love ourselves from the inside and out. Because once you love and accept yourself others will as well. #gratefulheart #holisticitilyfe #events #goodvibes #selflove #selfacceptance #june2017 #paneldiscussion #hair #beauty #naturalhair #weaves #kinkychicks #teamnatural #naturalhairstyles #brooklynmade #brooklynlove #holisticitilyfe #naturalistia #teamnaturalhair #naturalhaircommunity #thebaldiemovement #blackgirlmagic #togetherwecan #makeadifference
