Audiences are still on a high from Black Panther and everything that the Marvel movie stood for. As we are amazed at the whole cast and a job well done, we cannot help to swoon over the ladies of the film. Strong, beautiful black women were depicted in ways we haven’t seen in a long time. Melanin-rich skin and natural hair were portrayed in the movie effortlessly. As Angela Bassett, Letitia Wright, and Lupita Nyong’o wore locs, braids, and a small afro, Danai Gurira will be remembered for how she slayed a bald head, especially in the scene where she used her wig as a weapon!

Ladies, if you’re looking for inspiration and the confidence to rock a bald head, check out five women who have done it with grace and enforced India Arie’s “I Am Not My Hair” movement.
