Saweetie Is The Latest Celeb To Join The List Of Bald Baddies

New year, new hair.

Saweetie

Saweetie is going into the New Year with a freshly shaven head and she’s letting the world get a full view. The 28-year-old rapper debuted her new look on Instagram while vacationing somewhere in the tropics. The first photo showed her tilting her head back in all its glory while she soaks up the sun.


The rest of the photos continue to capture the essence of her baldness while she poses poolside and in the clear blue ocean waters. Saweetie used emojis as her caption to encapsulate her mood.

While she never disclosed her reason behind chopping off her tresses, this isn’t the first time she cut her hair. In November 2020, the “Best Friend” rhymer posted a photo of herself rocking a rainbow-colored low cut, which she also wore in her video for her hit song “Back to the Streets.”

But Saweetie isn’t the only baddie who dared to cut off her hair. Here are some other celebrities who made the big chop over the years.

Toni Braxton

“Living legend” Toni Braxton had the internet buzzing when she unveiled her platinum blonde cut to her Instagram followers last year.

China McClain

Although China McClain's cropped hair made its first appearance on Instagram in July 2020, the Black Lightning star revealed that she actually cut her hair “close to a year ago.”

Yvonne Orji

Not exactly bald, but close enough. Insecure star Yvonne Orji debuted her chopped-off tresses on Instagram in the summer of 2020.

Sanaa Lathan

Sanaa Lathan did the big chop back in 2018 for her role in the Netflix film Nappily Ever After. Since then, the actress has been documenting her astonishing hair growth.

Michaela Coel first shaved her head back in 2017 and hasn’t looked back since. In an interview with BET, the I May Destroy You star said that she wants it “to be very normal that some women don’t have hair.”

Tamar Braxton

Toni may have been inspired by her little sister Tamar Braxton for her decision to rock a bald look. The youngest of the Braxton sisters actually made the “big cut” back in May 2020.

Tiffany Haddish

Tiffany Haddish made the big chop back in 2020 in a video she shared on Instagram. The comedian said that “I wanna see my scalp. I know every single part of my body. I know where every single mole is. Anybody that’s ever done my hair has heard me say it.”

Keke Palmer

Keke Palmer shaved off her hair back in May 2017 and later dyed it purple for a more edgy style. The actress shared that she was motivated to cut her hair due to heat damage.

Jada Pinkett Smith

Jada Pinkett Smith has been wearing her hair short most of her career, but in the months leading up to her 50th birthday, she decided to cut it all off. The Red Table Talk host has also opened up about her battle with alopecia and most recently posted an Instagram video about her hair loss journey.

Danai Gurira

Black Panther star Danai Gurira shaved her head for her role in the Marvel film and it quickly became an iconic look for the star. Since then, she has been experimenting with many different natural hairstyles.

Amber Rose

Amber Rose is the OG of the bald head baddie gang. Since she hit the scene with Kanye West back in 2008, the model has been an inspiration for many women on how to confidently and effortlessly rock a shaved head.

'P-Valley' & 10 Other Shows That Feature Empowered Black Characters

I vividly recall my mother implying that TV couldn’t teach me much of anything, but in reality, we know that representation teaches us a lot! It empowers us and highlights diverse ways of Black life (more so in recent television history) that vary from traditional to not so traditional – though this makes the impact no less real. Television shows like P-Valley highlight the importance of human decency over respectability politics, while other shows allow us to see the value in falling through life with our awkwardness.

Here's Why You Should Ditch Fourth Of July And Have A Family Reunion Instead

“Who made the potato salad?” As summertime kicks off, this is the universal question that, without fail, will be asked at every barbeque and backyard kickback over the coming months. With the Fourth of July also nearing, summertime celebrations and cookouts will be in full force. However, as the tide begins to turn in this new day and age, more Black Americans are celebrating Juneteenth, instead of the Fourth of July, because, after all, there were still over 250,000 Black Americans enslaved in Galveston, Texas during this so-called Independence Day.
