You wouldn’t believe how difficult it is to locate any reliable information on balding men’s hairstyles on the internet these days.
For example, if you’ve ever tried to search on Google for “balding men hairstyles,” “balding males’ hairstyles,” “balding hairstyles,” or any other number of variants on the theme, you’ll know exactly what I mean.
This is unexpected in light of the large number of balding guys who, like everyone else, deserve a respectable hairdo…
So, in response to this injustice, I’ve put together a guide on balding men’s haircuts…
Male pattern baldness affects 95 percent of all males who are bald or balding. Starting at the front of the head, male pattern baldness is often followed by thinning at the top.
This thinning progresses to a complete bald patch, which eventually covers the entire head except for the sides and the back.
What matters is that no matter how short my hair gets, I’m going to demand a fashionable haircut. As far as balding hairstyles are concerned, what’s out there?
The comb over is the worst haircut for guys with thinning hair. This is a classic hairstyle for men of a particular age, in which the hair on one side of the head is grown longer and ‘combed over’ to the opposite side of the bald spot.
Even the tiniest breeze can mean doom for this tactic, and it should be avoided at all costs.
If you already know this, then what are the other hairstyle rules for balding men?
The most typical blunder is to pull one’s hair back with a straightening comb. As long as you don’t mind your forehead and hairline being exposed, this will work.
In order to compensate for a loss of hair on top, you can grow your hair out in the back. This throws the head’s equilibrium off, emphasising the baldness on the top.
The usage of gel by younger men with thinning hair is not suggested. When you use gel, it causes your hair to stick together, exposing your scalp.
Similarly, trying to hide a problem by wearing your hair long actually exposes more of your scalp.
Do you know the rules?
Use mousses and conditioners to give your hair a more natural look.
To combat the receding hairline, grow out your remaining hair a few inches, get it layered, and brush it forward.
Keeping your hair long in the front and combing it straight back will help hide a bald spot if your hairline isn’t receding too much but the top of your head is.
Your bald area will eventually grow, though.
To achieve the perfect haircut for men who have a shiny bald head, you can either shave it all off or have a close trim.
The shaved look is a perfectly acceptable balding haircut these days, and you’ll be surprised by the reactions and praises you’ll receive.
Start by using electric clippers like those used in barbershops. Shave gel should be used after you’ve clipped the tough material. This provides a closer, more comfortable shave than shaving cream.
It’s recommended that you use a mirror to see what you’re doing as you shave, starting at top and working your way down with the grain.
It only takes a few minutes to shave your head, and you don’t have to do it daily (two to three times a week is fine).
In the same way that you care for your face, taking care of your shaved head is similar. Instead of using a harsh deodorant soap that might dry out your scalp, use a moisturising soap on a regular basis.
After each wash, apply a high-quality moisturiser to keep your skin from drying out.
Use a sunscreen with a sun protection factor of at least 15 to avoid sunburn on your head in the summer. In the winter, you’ll want to wear a warm hat to keep your head warm.
A hairpiece can be an option as a last resort if shaving doesn’t appeal to you, but I would not suggest it:-)
