A Tribute To 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.
