Badass Women Are Owning Their Cropped Hair Thanks To The #BaldAndBad Challenge

"I never embrace my short hair so I figured I would for once."

The mannequin challenge has been fun and all, but it's time to make way for a new trend on the social media scene —  the #BaldAndBadChallenge.  

The Bald and Bad Challenge is going viral thanks to its message about body positivity and self-love. It encourages women with bald, shaved, or short hairstyles to embrace their cropped locks by sharing photos of themselves on Twitter and other social media networks.


While short hair and shaved heads are becoming more widely appreciated, long hair is still often the beauty ideal for many. The Bald and Bad Challenge is helping to change this restrictive definition to show that everyone is beautiful, whether they have long hair, short hair, or no hair at all.

 Of course, the message is also resonating with cancer survivors who may not have a choice in hairstyle, but would like the world to know that being bald can be totally badass. 

Take a look at other tweets from the #BaldandBadChallenge:
