While searching the web, I came across a comment made by a Caucasian girl who stated and I quote, “How do black women pull off having a shaved head, while a poor white girl like me cannot.” Considering this, I recall the several times I took a stroll in our very own Nairobi CBD, and witnessed countless numbers of women, both young and old embrace the shaved look. It brings out an element of simplicity yet boldness in women that not only compliments blacks, but stretches throughout all races.
Does shape of the head matter?
A woman with a shaved head can be just as beautiful, or even more so than one with lovely locks. The confidence it protrudes in itself, is enough to guarantee one a few stares (the good kind). However, with an array of different skin tones and head shapes, is there a particular face type required for shaved hair? Some may argue that there is.
I for one shaved my hair, and dyed it. I should mention that I have a round head shape, the worst possible type to attempt an all rounded shaved head (according to the internet). Yet no one was relatively revolted with my hair choice, and I did receive a few compliments.
After all, why not shaved hair? It comes with a whole bunch of benefits, from spending less on hair products, being unconcerned with how the rain will damage your hair, to getting showered with comments and compliments alike. Without sufficient hair to cover your face, you have time to care and pay attention to your skin, eyebrows, lips, etc. You can pull off bolder makeup looks, not saying that you should drown your face in cosmetics. If you’ve been meaning to go short, there is a high probability that you wouldn’t look too shabby.
