*Bald Women Are Beautiful, In More Ways Than One

>>><<<

I have a friend who is classically beautiful.

Until recently she had a mane of long dark hair.

She has had to come to terms with losing her hair and has courageously shaved her head around where her wound is and decided to face her loss with style. Amazingly, she is now even more beautiful. Her inner beauty shines forth and her face has a radiant beauty. She is a truly extraordinary young woman.

I decided to have a look around for other beauties who don’t rely on their hair.

Example 1 from ‘Kryptonian Warrior :

Question: Is A Woman With A Shaved Head Hot?

 

quote: “The answer to the post title above would be “yes”, if her name is Amber Rose…
Why did I (Krypton Warrior) ask the question? Well I’m a huge fan of women, as you’ll know if you read this blog regularly, and when a woman who stands out from the crowd comes along I like to point her out. Megan Fox has been pointed out on here more than most, and she stands out more than most simply because she’s stunning (some would argue of course), but with Kanye West’s girlfriend it’s a different matter. She’s not your average stunner who conforms to the norm. She’s as bald as I am, voluntarily, and is still super hot… It’s not that women who shave their Waaren’t hot, it’s just not something you see every day and are used to (unless you like Demi Moore in G.I. Jane).”

Example 2 from ‘Buzznet’:

Half Shaved Head- Who wore it and Who's wearing it Now photo 1

Rhiannon

Alice Dellal

British model Alice Dellal has been storming catwalks with this distinctive look. It goes rather well with her off the runway personal style. Dellal pairs her undercut with black leather jackets, combat boots and heavy, black eye liner creating a wild and rebellious image that’s inspiring young IT girls. 

Buzznet.com correspondent and fashion enthusiast, Hanna Beth jumped on the trend stating in her blog that she loved Dellal’s look. Hanna writes, quote: “I have never been as happy with my hair as  am now.. I love it..” She and her best friend both took to the razor’s edge an adopted the edgy style. Even though the undercut can look rather punk rock, Hanna does an impeccable job of keeping this look very clean and feminine combining it with lacy blouses and leopard print outer wear.”

Example 3 from ‘Switchboard’:

On Memorial Day, West Virginia women shaved their heads on the steps of the state capitol in a call to end mountaintop removal mining. Today, a crowd cheered as more women (and several men) joined the call and sheared off their hair on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC.  

As Appalachia Rising explains, “In Appalachia, a woman’s hair is her adornment, and in the native American community, women would sometimes shave their heads as a sign of mourning.” The cultural significance of women’s hair makes head-shaving a meaningful sacrifice. It was one that the participants were glad to make in exchange for some national attention to the ongoing destruction of mountains, streams, and communities through mountaintop removal. As one of the shorn activists said today,”My hair’s gonna grow back, but the mountains won’t.”

Well, it is one thing to choose to lose your hair, and quite another to have to face losing your hair through illness and fighting for your life. I have so much admiration for all those women – and men – who have found their courage and beauty through losing their hair – so all love and three cheers to a beautiful friend.

God Bless and here’s to strength, courage, style and beauty through adversity, but most of all to Life!

  1. I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I run across a web page that’s both educative and exciting, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is splendid ; the issue is something that not enough people are talking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this.

  2. You decidedly put a new spin on a subject that’s been written about for years. Wonderful stuff, just great! I enjoy reading a post that will make people think, thanks and we want more! Added to FeedBurner too.

  3. The look on women is definitely not a mainstream style but for those who can pull it off it is quite liberating. Most of us stop with a scalp buzz as those above have. Some of the more brave or adventurous have actually had our head lathered and shaved with a razor. Speaking as a bald by choice woman, I really like your idea and hope it catches on!

  4. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be
    running off the screen in Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post
    to let you know. The layout look great though!
    Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Kudos
