The hairless look is becoming a hot trend in male fashion. Famous actors such as Bruce Willis, Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson, Justin Timberlake and many others have shed their locks in favor of a buzzed or bald look. If you are thinking about joining the hairless community, you will want to consider a few things before you visit a professional barber:
Why Do You Want to Cut Your Hair?
Men shave their heads for a wide variety of reasons. The most common reason that men go for the bald look is balding. Some males develop receding hairlines after the age of 28, and they feel that shaving their hair off is the least expensive and least troublesome solution. Some men shave their heads because baldness seems to be “in.” A small portion of men shaves to please other people. You must ask yourself why you want to cut your hair. If the change is going to cause you to have more self-esteem and confidence, then by all means, you should do it. You should reconsider cutting your hair because of peer pressure or “significant other” pressure.
Will a Bald Cut Suit You?
The second point you will want to consider is whether the bald cut will suit you. Not everyone has the head or the face to pull off the bald look, unfortunately. First, your head must have an even and rounded shape. It must also be on the smaller side rather than the larger side. Additionally, your face should have symmetrical features and an oval shape. You can still cut your hair even if it does not suit you, but the aforementioned structures will yield the best results.
Will Anyone Oppose Your New Lockless Look?
Finally, you will want to consider your vulnerability and the way you react to criticism. Do you know someone who may oppose your new hairstyle? If you have a difficult time with the comments of co-workers, family members, significant others and friends, then you will want to think about your new cut for quite some time before you do it. A bald cut is a drastic change. Fortunately, you can grow your hair back if the procedure goes awry. You can always try the cut and see how people react to it. If you receive multiple negative reactions, then you can always wear a baseball cap until your hair returns.
