Does singer Stevie Wonder have a bald head? Did he decide to shave off the rest of his hair?
That is the way it looks in a recent picture of the legendary singer at a fundraiser with two of his sons.
The picture, which was taken at the 3rd Annual Hoop Life FriendRaiser, features Stevie standing alongside Kailand and Mandla Morris on the red carpet at the event.

The angle from which the photograph was captured makes it seem as if he is completely bald. Once the picture started circulating online, it did not take very long to go viral due to the response and reactions on social media from fans, followers and critics.

Looking a little closer at the photograph, however, reveals the truth behind the picture: Stevie Wonder is not completely bald.
There were quite a few other pictures taken of the award-winning singer with his two sons on the red carpet. The photos taken of Stevie from the side quickly squash any assumptions or false claims.
Even though Stevie Wonder appears bald from certain angles, he still has his locks in a ponytail towards the back of his head.

I am crying. Stevie Wonder’s hairline done receded so much that he looks bald from the front. — IK Enemkpali (@KENNotBeStopped) September 4, 2015
Charlamagne Tha God, a co-host on the hit morning radio show The Breakfast Club, did not take long to criticize Stevie’s hair yet again in a tweet of his own.

This is not the first time that Stevie Wonder’s hair has been the target of Charlamagne’s publicized criticism.
Back in September 2013, Charlamagne gave the morning show’s “Donkey of the Day” recognition to Stevie Wonder’s close friends and family members for not doing anything about his hair.
“Stevie Wonder’s hairline looks like Tyrese when he’s facing you and 2 Chainz when he’s walking away. Come on Stevie Wonder’s family and friends. If you love that man get him to shave that struggle off his dome. If Stevie Wonder could see he wouldn’t wear his hair like that. Poor Stevie don’t know what’s going on.”
In December 2012, Complex magazine ranked Stevie Wonder’s receding braids No. 28 on its list of the 50 worst celebrity hairstyles.
