It’s rare that men experience total hair loss, instead you normally see their hairline stops receding at some point and they’re left with a ring of hair. 85% of men will experience some level of hair loss by the time they’re 50, so you’re in the majority, not the minority. The question now is…what do you do with what’s left?
It’s totally up to you, but our recommendation is that you own it. Keeping what’s left super short, or shaving it all off, shows confidence in your new hairline. The good news is that you can manage these cuts on your own at home, so no more visits to the barber are needed, unless you want to get a premium shave experience.
BEST OPTION: The full shave – this option can seem a bit scary, but in reality, it’s an awesome option that shows you’re owning your hairline. If you think of the celebrities that rock this look, you’re joining the ranks of Patrick Stewart, Jason Statham, Samuel L. Jackson and Bruce Willis. The leading men of Star Trek, The Transporter, The Marvel Universe and Die Hard is not a bad group to be part of. The other great benefit is that the full shave tends to make you look much younger than the power donut. For the best results you should look into a daily, or every second day shaving routine. To keep some interest and frame your face, consider growing a beard.
ADDITIONAL OPTION: The power donut- although a less modern approach, the power donut has been a staple of baby boomer bald hairstyles. It tends to be a more “mature” look and will add some years to your overall appearance. If you’re going for this option PLEASE KEEP IT SHORT AND WELL GROOMED! Letting your hair grow at unruly angles shows a lack of self-care and self-confidence.
