Become bald (Mic 1:16-1:16)

Make yourselves bald!

Cut off your hair

For your pampered children!

Make yourselves

As bald

As the eagle!

They have gone

From you

Into exile.”

Being bald was a sign of mourning.  Yahweh, via Micah wanted the Israelites to become bald, by cutting off their hair.  They should be as bald as a bald eagle, because they were going to go into exile.
