Please subscribe to our Youtube channel:

Shaving head is something that is a usual activity to some people and absolutely unacceptable and shocking to others. Many men shave their heads even when they don’t have problems with losing their hair.

Men who are losing their hair often opt for shaving their head completely to avoid the unpleasantness of having a thinning hair or having bald spots on their head. Unlike men, women often find the action of shaving head unacceptable and shocking.

There are women who shave their head but that is often some kind of personal statement and it happens very rare.

Because people tend to look at shaving head differently and with a different level of acceptance, when dreams about shaving head happen, these dreams have a different meaning depending on the attitude the dreamer has about this action.

Of course, this dream could in some cases be significant for people who shave their heads often and it all depends on the details of the dream. In dreams, hair symbolizes confidence, power, and strength. It could also be considered as a sign of abundance and knowledge.

Dreams about shaving it off our heads could be an important message for the person who had this dream.

Some of the most common meanings of shaving head in dreams:

Humility and humble nature

Dreams about shaving head could be a sign of the person’s humble nature and humility.

Maybe the person dreaming about shaving their head doesn’t have a high opinion about themselves and their values.

They could be used to undermine their success and abilities. If that is the case, the dream about shaving head could be a sign from their subconscious to love and appreciate themselves more.

These dreams are often dreamed by people who have a tendency to put others and their needs before themselves.

Major life decisions and changes

Shaving head in a dream is often a sign of some major life decision the person needs to make or has already made and that decision has a great changing impact on their life.

It is possible that this decision has changed their life completely and that might have been a shock at first.

Sometimes this dream could signify regret because of some decision you made and now you feel ashamed and possibly angry for something you have done and cannot change.

If that is happening, the dream is a sign that you need to forgive yourself for the mistake you made and move on with your life without tormenting yourself anymore.

Leave this situation in the past and accept it as a part of your reality.

Clearing stuff from the past

Dreams about shaving the hair off the head could often indicate a kind of clearing the path for new things and experiences. They are a sign of getting rid of accumulated negativity and clearing the soil for healthy new plants to grow.

Such dreams are very often a sign of new things that are coming after we made space for them.

This doesn’t have to refer to just negativity, but also getting rid of old beliefs, ways of thinking, ideas, etc. They will be replaced with new ones once the old ones are gone.

Getting rid of the past quickly

In most cases, a dream about shaving head reveals the person’s desire to finish with the past and move on to the future.

Shaving the head and not cutting of the hair is a clear sign that the person is fed up with their current life circumstances and wants to get out of it as quickly and easy possible.

It is a fast process of removing the past from one’s life and not a gradual one.

The person wants it finished and the adaptation to the new circumstances also needs to be fast although it is very shocking at first.

Moving into a new phase of life

Often a dream about shaving head indicates the person’s desire to move into a new phase of life or it indicates that the person has already moved into a new phase and describes the state of shock because of the changes they need to go through before adapting to the new circumstances.

Overcoming obstacles and solving problems

In some interpretations hair is a sign of problems and obstacles, so a dream about shaving it off could be a sign of the person energetically solving them and overcoming the difficulties they have caused in their lives.


Shaving head is a bald move and not many people are prepared to do it.

Hair makes everyone more beautiful and getting rid of it is a serious risk we might not be as attractive as we used to be.

That is why a dream about shaving head could be a sign of the dreamer’s confidence.
