No. Not all orthodox Jewish women shave their heads bald.

However some Jewish women do keep a shaved head. They usually wear a wig or headscarf in public after they shave their head bald.

Of course some secular Jewish women, as well as other women, shave their heads not for religious or spiritual reasons but for fashion reasons, as some women actresses, fashion models, singers, etc. are doing these days. It is a chic sleek fashionable style. A woman needs to be beautiful and feminine, wear makeup and earrings and dress feminine, etc., for it to look good on her.
