Tell us a bit about your decision to cut your hair or why you are bald?
I've been wearing my hair in a Caesar cut for the past 18 years, I decided to go completely bald as of early April of last year. I love being myself and dancing to my own music. I've always been the person to live outside the box than follow trends.

Black Gold Of The Sun
Me and my boyfriend are both bald. I have been bald for close to four years now and he has been bald for just over a year. When we met I had a small mohawk and knew that I would eventually be shaving all my hair off because that is when I feel happiest. So I sat him down one night and let him know that I felt most like myself when I am bald. Usually in the past when I would tell someone I was dating that I was going to shave my head or I enjoyed being bald it was followed by a thousand questions or reasonings for me not to shave my head. My boyfriend just looked at me though and said "I love you for who you are hair or no hair. I find it attractive and it really shows that you're not afraid to express yourself. It's one of the things I love most about you."
It was such a relief to finally have someone that would love me for me. It made me 10 times more confident and happy with myself. But what I didn't know at the time is that my baldie pride would come back around in our relationship. At the time when I first shaved my head in our relationship, my boyfriend still had hair, though it was definitely thinning on top. I suggested to him many times to try shaving it off, that he might really like it, but he was pretty apprehensive. He's still a young guy and was dealing with a little anxiety over losing his hair. It took about six months, but one day I opened a picture of him holding a razor with the caption "it's time." The next picture I received was my boyfriend sporting a freshly shaven head. It looked amazingly cute on him. He told me seeing me bald and happy made him realize his hair didn't make him who he was. Together we have been a baldie couple and I hope it always stays that way
