From superstars like Jason Statham, Vin Diesel to YouTube favorite Anthony Fantano, bald men are attractive and confident. If you’re a man who has been relieved of the burden called hair, an excellent fashion sense will make you irresistible.
In this article, you will find some tips to help you feel and look your best.
Shave with patience and the right techniques
Shaving your head is not an easy task. Especially if you have never done it by yourself before.
Head shaving requires the right techniques, patience, and equipment. First, if you have some longer hair left, which is usually the case, trimming them first is necessary for a smooth shaving experience.
Once you’re done with that, you can use a razor and shave it as you do for your beard or other parts of your body. Using high-quality razors is recommended. Those disposable razor blades would only be doing you a disfavor.
Also, according to dermatologists, some razors should be used after you’re done taking a shower because that is when the scalp is the softest. But as someone who has personally shaved off his hair before, I prefer to do it before taking a shower because I like to wash off the hair that gets stuck to my face and body. You should definitely experiment to find out which way works best for you.
Finish the process by using a good-quality aftershave. You should also apply moisturizer and sunscreen on your head — we’ll talk more about this below.
Thrive for excellent physique
If you want to stand out and not be the average bald Joe, bodybuilding is a great choice. A bald head looks very cool with a good physique. For example, look at Hollywood star and former WWE champion The Rock Dwayne Jonson, his physique is something every man desires to have. But you need to pick a more realistic goal because movie stars work out a lot for their appearance, which might not fit into our daily schedule that is packed with fun things like work and running errands.
A proper diet and a 30-minute workout four times a week may be the perfect approach. You can also join a gym for more intensive exercises and faster results. You will be rewarded for your effort as you will feel more confident and also look much more attractive sans-hair.
Bold rhymes with bald and truths rhyme
A bald head is bold, and the fashion that you need to approach should be bold. Let’s talk about Jason Statham in most of his movies. You probably already know that a lot of skilled people work behind the creation of a film. Many of the said experts and experts from the fashion field. That is why we should take fashion inspiration (steal) from those movies when the actor or actress has the same kind of body as the cast of a film. In caveman’s terms, steal bald men looks from movies.
In The Transporter, Jason Statham’s formal look and other more casual looks are something that you can draw inspiration from. For example, you can implement his combination of jackets and turtleneck shirts for a casual event that truly deserves your attention. For more formal looks inspiration, check out this lookbook.
Lastly, wearing sunglasses can be sexy for men who are no longer burdened by their hair. It makes the appearance of a man bolder and attracts attention.
Every month is Movember
Ok. Not exactly. Some trimming is required but keep reading.
A beard can be great for bald men to appear sexier. It doesn’t matter if you are keeping it short or going for a bolder look. It will always look good. Firstly, you need to understand that a beard is not necessary, but keeping it may be a good idea. Men who have a slim physique can try long beard while more muscular bodies can practice the opposite.
There are a lot of different styles of keeping a beard that can be useful for bald men. Since there has been a popular trend of bald men keeping a beard in recent years (or maybe like hundreds of years, sorry, we are not History channel), you can probably get it done at a nearby saloon by showing the barber a photo of what you’re looking for.
Anyway, growing a beard is a great way to transcend a bald man’s look.
Take good care of your scalp
Whether you’re going bald by choice or not, you should always remember to take care of your scalp.
Why? Firstly, your hair is a layer of protection that you have lost, and that’s why you have to take action, so your scalp does not face damage. What kind of damage? Well, damage from the elements like the harmful UV rays from the Sun.
The first thing you need to do is make sure that you are using moisturizers and sunscreen to protect your scalp.
Use moisturizers even in summer if you have a dry scalp. The best way to find out suitable moisturizers is to use one and see how your body reacts to it. There are pre-shave oil and many other products that can help people who are having issues with dryness. If you are not careful, you might end up with bald dandruff — don’t think it can’t happen. In colder, dryer months, however, moisturizer is simply a necessity.
Our Sun is a giant nuclear reactor, its light both invigorates and hurts us. Of the sunlight’s spectrum, its ultraviolet component (i.e. the UV rays) damages our skin cells and is the main cause of skin cancer. Our hair protects the scalp from being harmed. Now that you’re no longer burdened by having hair, you’ll need to look into a good sunblock that will fill in that role. I’d love to talk more about this topic some other time, but for now, check out this article on GQ for more information.
What’s your secret in looking great bald?
Besides these tips, you should always practice common sense like not walking under the hot sun for too long without wearing a hat, or standing somewhere where too much lighting makes your head looks like a disco ball thanks to the reflection. Lastly, remember to accept your new and better bald look — nothing feels better than being at ease with yourself. Check out other grooming tips articles.
