The Inspiring Bald And Bad Challenge Is Turning Heads

The #BaldAndBadChallenge is celebrating women who have shaved their heads, whether by choice or not.

The year of 2016 has had its fair share of ups and downs. From this model who flaunts her birthmark instead of trying to hide it to the artist who gave our favorite Disney Princesses some smokin' curves, the past 365 days have taken steps in a positive direction for changing the cookie cutter mold of society's beauty standards. Next up in the redefining of beautiful? Introducing the #baldandbadchallenge.

Bald (or just really short-haired!) women all over the social media world are participating in the challenge to celebrate the differences we all have, including how (or if!) we choose (or have the choice made for us) to wear our hair, and that we don't need to look like anyone else to be considered beautiful. Cancer survivors are even participating in this safe space, and every single bald photo is incredible.

The freedom that not being attached to your hair nor the world's standards of beauty is obviously the beauty secret we all need because everyone looks absolutely fantastic. See for yourself, and prepare to be inspired!
