Boyd’s Bible Dictionary:

(ball-like). Priests forbidden to make themselves bald (Lev. 21:5; Deut. 14:1; Ezek. 44:20). “Bald-head” a cry of contempt (2 Kings 2:23); as indicating leprosy (Lev. 13:40-43). Voluntary baldness a sign of misery (Isa. 3:24; Ezek. 7:18); or else the conclusion of the Nazarite vow (Num. 6:9).

Concise Bible Dictionary:

The Israelites were forbidden to cut themselves or to make themselves bald for the dead, as the heathen did; for they were a holy people unto the Lord (Lev. 21:5; Deut. 14:1; Jer. 16:6). Baldness is one of the judgments of the Lord: perhaps they would make themselves bald in their distress (Isa. 3:24; Isa. 15:2; Isa. 22:12; Ezek. 7:18; Amos 8:10; Mic. 1:16). See NAZARITE.
