Introduction

Get ready to embrace your baldness and feel free on Be Bald and Be Free Day on October 14! This day was created in 2002 by a man who wanted to raise awareness about alopecia, an autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss. He wanted people with alopecia and all kinds of hair loss to celebrate their baldness without feeling embarrassed or ashamed. So grab your razors, baseball caps, wigs or whatever you use for head coverings; it's time to show off our beautiful bald heads!
