Does becoming bald or baldness in general carry a negative meaning in Sikhism? I am not a Sikh, but the religion is very interesting to me, especially it's views on hair.

No it doesn't carry any negative meaning.. it's natural may be with age or sometimes result of some disease. Sikhs are prohibited to cut their hairs as they are natural form given to the humans by God. In same manner baldness can be perceived as natural, a Sikh is required to cover their head. Like my grandfather became bald in his early 80s but he use to wear turban. Well, the religion can also be interesting to you if you look at it from a spiritual perspective. The essential message of Sikhism is Oneness with the creator God , all humans must try to achieve this in present life only.
