It was with great pleasure to speak with this Bald Kenyan Beauty Roshie Anne about her journey and how she became a Baldie. She shared with me that It took a while to get as confident as she is now but she's all about owning it. If she can inspire someone out there. Her work is done. I invite you to #BeInspired by her story and to see the world through her eyes, as a bald woman.
I became a baldie the summer of 2014.
I had been rocking box braids and I was tired of them. I always used to switch up my hairstyles then get bored after two weeks. Having had short hair in high school, I figured I wouldn't look too bad if I went bald. I found a barbershop, walked in and told the barber I wanted to shave all my hair off. The look on his face was priceless. I felt like a brand new woman walking out the barbershop.
Being featured on here is going to be a memorable experience.
Thank you so much for bringing us together Nell. Another wonderful experience I had was with my five year old niece who fondly calls me Auntie Baldie. She wanted to understand why I choose to go bald rather than let my hair grow long like hers. It must have been an hour long conversation answering her repeated why's but she thinks it's pretty and that's all that matters.
My baldness is a choice and I want to be permanent.
I haven't thought of growing my hair since the big chop and I don't think I ever will. I found a look that suits me so well.
Do not compare yourself with anyone.
You are beautiful. You are gorgeous. Let the world see you as you are. Love yourself unconditionally. To be able to love yourself as you are in a world that constantly places us in little boxes is the most amazing thing in the world. The self confidence will ooze out from you once you truly love and accept yourself. The world is yours darling, rock on!
