Happy Bald And Free Day! Baldness used to be seen as a sign of age and something to be embarrassed about. Not anymore. This holiday celebrates just how gorgeous and awesome a bald or buzzed cut can be. Whether for a movie role or just to change up their look, these female celebrities prove that chopping it off is totally sexy.
Amber Rose is known for her signature bald look. When she was 19 years old, she took a razor to her scalp and took it all off. “After I shaved it, I cried for a few days," she said. "Until I realized it looked dope." Her buzz cut has given her a unique look that caught the eye of Kanye West and then the world.
It takes one hot, bald woman to inspire another. Amber Rose points to singer Sinead O’Connor as influencing her to go bald. “Sinead O’Connor was a bald-headed bad-ass, and I loved her," she said. No arguments here.
What was a spontaneous decision has made Solange a hair icon; In 2009, she cut off her hair and everyone took notice but that was never her intention. "I honestly was just tired of the energy surrounding my hair," she said. "So when I cut it, I didn't think about what anyone else would think."
The couple that goes bald together, looks hot together. In 1997, Demi Moore shaved it all for her role in G.I. Jane. The dramatic look complemented her then-husband Bruce Willis and the two were the A-list bald power couple.
Actress Natalie Portman always commits to her film roles. In 2005, she traded her brown tresses for a buzz cut for her role in V For Vendetta.
Cynthia Nixon was always known as the redhead on Sex and the City. In 2012, the accomplished theatrical actress went bald for a Broadway production of Wit, in which she played a character facing terminal cancer.
