Bald and Free Day is celebrated on October 14th. Millions of people in the world suffer from baldness for medical or natural reasons. This day is entirely dedicated to beautiful bald people.
Shaving the beard and head dates back to the Stone Age. Heads were shaved with pointed shells. Shaved heads were commonplace for priests from ancient Rome and Egypt, as well as for ordinary people because of the hot climate. There is an opinion that in Egypt they invented tools for shaving from copper and gold.
The trend for shaved heads began in the 1950s. If a man is bald, it was believed that he was courageous, confident, disciplined and tough. Many famous personalities had shaved heads. The 1990s saw the peak of shaved head popularity, from Bruce Willis to Michael Jordan. People who fight cancer lose their hair due to chemotherapy and radiation.
