How did I become a BALDIE?
About 2 years ago, my hair began to fall out in small patches, with the loss becoming rapid within the last 6 months. I was diagnosed with alopecia areata, which left me frustrated, angry and depressed after many failed treatments and no answers as to why this was happening to me. I knew where things were headed, so I decided to shave my head a few months ago. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
What makes you feel beautiful?
My personal growth, which is constantly evolving makes me feel beautiful. My bravery, self-acceptance, resilience and ability to share my baldness with no shame makes me feel beautiful. I have come a long way in a short amount of time, and for that I am proud. I have a newfound passion for shattering the stigma associated with hair loss, and I hope that I can somehow make a difference.
My most memorable moment as a BALDIE?
I’m such a fresh new baldie, but my most memorable moment was being shocked at how much support I was shown when I came out about my story and revealed my bald head. Family, friends, and strangers offered words of encouragement and compliments that I didn’t expect.
What one word describes your baldness and why?
One phrase: “unexpected blessing”. I am forever grateful that alopecia has offered me a new and rewarding perspective on life, beauty and confidence.
Words of encouragement to share with someone who’s trying to find courage to embrace their baldness publicly?
People are going to stare. They will look at you. But most likely, they are admiring your bravery and your ability to confidently rock a bald head. We are conditioned as a society to expect people to have a head of gorgeous hair. But beauty is a diverse ideology. Hair is fun, but it is not necessary. Be confident, be edgy, be you, and learn to love yourself unconditionally along to way.
We'd like to take the time to wish Quandrea Jones a Happy Birthday and thank you for sharing your story with us. Today, you are the #BaldieOfTheDay. As much as we have inspired you, it's time for you to shine and inspire someone else with your story.
How DID YOU BECOME A BALDIE?
I became a BALDIE over 35 years ago. I have Alopecia and I always lacked confidence, self-esteem and never knew my worth because I didn't have hair! A year ago, I decided that I would embrace, who I was, realizing that hair didn't define me!! I made a decision to put the wigs aside and wear my bald head. Three days later, I joined The Baldie Movement and thought "there are so many beautiful BALDIES in the world."
WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL BEAUTIFUL?
The confidence to hold my head up high at the bold stares! I hold my head up and think sometimes, "yes look at me."
WHAT WAS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT AS A BALDIE?
When I took off my scarf and revealed my bald head to my 11th grade English students and they loved it. They were very supportive and dared anyone to say anything negative about me! They wanted to take pictures to show their parents, because they thought I was so pretty!
WHAT ONE WORD BEST DESCRIBES YOUR BALDNESS AND WHY?
I describe my baldness as BOLD. A woman that feels free to walk around with a bald head, holding her head high walking as if she has a head full of hair. I boldly go everywhere with my head uncovered.
What words of encouragement would you share with someone who’s trying to find that courage to embrace their baldness publicly?
Uncover in your time. I don't think I would've been as comfortable 5 years ago. So, when I got ready, I uncovered and I'm so comfortable, because it was when I got ready. Yes, people will look, but know that they only see your beauty!
How How did you two meet?
We were friends on Facebook and talked a lot over messenger. She invited me to her church's Halloween party because she noticed I wasn't doing very well. When I showed up I was extremely nervous. We had never officially met in person. She had mentioned she had never had sushi before so I brought some for her. I guess it turned into our first date and I knew that night I had met my future wife.
Was she bald when you two met? If not, what was it like watching her transition from hair to no hair?
She was bald but I didn't know it at first glance due to her wig. It wasn't until the next day when she asked me to the park. We were sitting on a park bench when she slowly took it off and avoided eye contact. I just pulled her closer and told her she was absolutely beautiful without it. She has an autoimmune disorder known as Alopecia but her hair goes through phases of it falling out and growing back in. I have watched her fall into extremme pits of depression again and again. Yet she surprises me because she pulls herself out all on her own. She has bloomed into the most confident and stunning woman.
How does it feel being with a woman with no hair?
Well I don't choke on hair in the middle of the night LOL! But honestly... I think it makes her more beautiful because it's her. She doesn't have long hair covering her face or that she hides behind.
What words of encouragement would you share with someone who feels she cannot attract a mate due to her baldness?
Don't think even for one minute you're not beautiful. If someone judges you for not having hair than they are worthless. They aren't worth your time.
