12 Women Who Proved Just How Liberating Shaving Your Head Can Be

Dealing with fashion standards is not an easy thing to do, and going against them is a challenging task, especially if you’re a woman. While it’s hard to believe, in the 21st century we as women are still subject to trends imposed by others, whether they be the beauty industry or our own family members. So something like shaving your head, which was frowned upon many years ago, has become popular today. It’s a powerful symbol of freedom to choose what you want to look like. And not only that, but women with shaved heads actually look great! The 12 beautiful women whose pictures we show you below prove this.
