More and more women are rocking that beautiful bald head look with no concern with critics or the normal criticism that may come with that choice.
Maybe it’s to do with the women wanting to go natural without having to transition so they choose to do an early ‘big chop’ and never have to deal with two hair textures.
However for some the level of negativity that comes with making such a bold move doesn’t make the decision easy and will require a little confidence when it comes to actually performing the act of shaving.
If you want to take the shaved head plunge here are a few tips that can be useful when rocking that style while waiting for your hair to grow out.
1. Keep the makeup light – It might be tempting to really add some layers to the face when rocking your bald ‘do’. But the truth is the lighter the makeup the more pronounced your natural features will be.
A bald head doesn’t have to necessarily equate to more make up; it might just mean, smile more!
2. Get girly – For a long time, a bald head was often associated with guys and sometimes that stigma still comes up every now and again. So if you want to rock it bald, then play up your other feminine assets.
Wear dresses, flirty skirts, accessories and don’t be afraid to show a little skin especially in the summer time. Got hips? Don’t hide them show that thing! No matter how you decide to do it, just make sure you are 100% comfortable with whatever you decide to wear.
3. Have confidence- Did you watch that famous episode of America’s Top Model with Tyra Banks and she had all the girls do a bald photo shoot. One of the most glamorous lessons from that shoot was the importance of confidence even when you do not have your crown, your hair.
The girls were absolutely stunning regardless of race, height, little head, big head they looked good and they knew it. There are so many things about you that are beautiful other than your hair and this is the time when you can look in the mirror and discover them all.
Your deep brown eyes, your cute nose, that thing your chin does, that one dimple on the left cheek. This is your time to showoff everything else!
4. Connect with your sisters and brothers that don’t have a choice – Sometimes going bald for some women is not all for fun, a lot of women going through chemotherapy, really don’t have a choice, they lose their hair all in the name of getting healthy again.
Because losing hair is often so sudden it may take a little time for the average patient to wrap their mind around not having their hair anymore.
As you rock your baldness and you look in the mirror think about the women that have the confidence to do it because they have to! And if nothing else motivates you to smile every time you see your shaved head then that certainly will.
Have you ever thought about just shaving your head, and if so how do you think you could pull off that style?
