Hair loss. Not an easy topic to talk about or to experience for that matter. But what if you could actually make hair loss classy? Adapt to it with style? No, this isn’t cheap talk. It’s actually quite possible.
Many have done this before you and many will do it in the future. So it might be time for you to hop on the boat! Let’s take a look at some notable examples of men sporting the bald look throughout the years. And then we’ll dive into how you can make it work for yourself.
Actors who chose the bald look
Perhaps one of the most renowned examples of actors sporting the no-hair look is Vin Diesel. Known for his many roles in action movies and his hair choice. You know who he is the moment he pops on screen. And has it ever bothered you that he is bald? Chances are it hasn’t. It even makes him look fiercer.
Another example is Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Known for his roles in Jumanji, Baywatch and Fast and Furious. Ex-wrestler and now actor, he has been rocking no hair for years now.
Yes, both of them shave their heads completely. But there are a lot of famous actors who don’t and show their balding heads nonetheless. Take Jack Nicholson for instance. He chooses not to shave his head and instead show off his crown of hair. Same goes for J.K. Simmons and Sean Connory. And let’s be honest, if 007 can cope with balding, so can you.
How can you own your bald look?
First it starts with your mindset. Don’t not let your head droop because you are losing your hair. Face what is happening and make your peace with it. It will make your life a lot easier and it will make the choices you’re going to have to make that much simpler. Once you have accepted the fact you’re going bald there are some options for you.
- Shave your head completely
This can feel like a relief. No more worrying about another hairless patch starting to show because you don’t have any hair anymore. The earlier you do this, the easier it will be. Once you start to notice you are balding shave off your remaining hair. No one will even notice you are going bald and will see it as a fashion choice.
- Grow a beard
There is nothing more stylish than having a shaved head combined with a nice beard. So finally start growing that facial hair you have always dreamed of. Even if you don’t have a full beard, leave enough stubble to balance out your head.
- Try out some hair growth products
Decided to keep what’s left of your hair? Invest in some good products to help you maintain and maybe even regrow some of that hair. There are countless options out there, like Freshman, that will help you achieve your goal.
- Take care of your head
Some hair of no hair, don’t ever forget to pamper that head of yours. There is a lot of skin showing now so put on sunscreen on those naked spots when going out. Burning your head isn’t fun nor healthy. And add in some moisturizer into your daily skin care routine. Your skin will thank you.
The Don’ts of Styling Your Bald(ing) Head
Of course there are a couple of things you should definitely avoid when you’re starting to go bald. Everyone knows the dreadful comb-over hairstyle. It’s where you grow out your remaining hair and then comb it over the bald spots. It’s neither fashionable or inconspicuous. Avoid it at all costs.
The other thing you should avoid is going to a hair stylist who has no experience with balding. You will leave the salon looking the worse for it. Stay away from coloring your remaining hair and try to pick a style that fits you.
As you have learned now, it is absolutely possible to adapt to hair loss with style. There are many actors sporting the bald or almost bald look and are still very successful. You have many options to pick out, from shaving your head completely to growing a beard. And you know what to avoid. This way going bald does not have to be the end of your world.
