Men - Wearing it Bald

Tyson Beckford (no hair)

Baldness sometimes happens naturally, whereby men lose their hair. However, Sometimes men intentionally shave all their hair. In this Hub, I am writing about Men who choose to go Bald.

The choice of shaving all the hair off in most cases gives a very nice look. Classic example, look at the photos of Tyson Beckford, one with hair and one bald. The bald one looks better, doesn't it?

I have also noticed a lot of African/American men cut their hair so the grey doesn’t show. Its shaved regularly and takes years of them.

 

Vin Diesel

Good points

  • It makes you look younger than your age.
  • Its easy to manage – infact what’s there to manage?
  • No one sees your grey hair if you have any.

Not so good

  • It shows and sometimes magnifies the shape of your head.
  • It's easy to catch a cold in the winter if you don't wear a hat.

Another Bald man, who chooses to shave it

Maybe you could give it a try to see if it suits you and if you don’t like it, you can always grow your hair back. See below some pictures of people who suit Shaved hairstyles. I'll let you guess who they are.

Being bald is a personal decision. If I lose my hair it won't bother me. Another problem with it is that we lose a lot of warmth through our heads in cold weather. Hats would be necessary.

I must admit it is much better than the long hair craze of years ago.

Baldness make someone look good when many spend lots of money preventing hair loss. Tyson Beckford looking great without hair.One thing is true the being bald regularly and trying to prevent hair loss are very expensive.

Hi Pete, I don't think you'll ever lose your hair - going by your pic. Lol. Thanks for your comments. I edited the Hub and added the possibility of catching a cold in the Winter. I'm glad you stopped by. Thanks. :)

Both my son and son-in-law shave their heads bald. Each has a beautiful head of hair so I have to wonder why. Either way, they are still handsome…

baldness suits heads with nice shapes. hubby sports it. and it is really very easy to manage. not all men can have it though. must be the shape of the face and the head.

Ever since Michael Jordon started shaving his head, bald has become an accepted style. I'm glad that happened because it took away a former self-esteem issue for men.

Shaving of hair in men usually unveil some hidden facial features. But it depends on the shape of the head. Great pics, Nice hub!

* Hello Nancy, from reading all your comments to the variety of my Hubs, you look at the inside of people. Kind hearted lady :)

* You are right Bingskee, not all men can wear it, due to the shape of their heads. :)

* Helloooooooo DameScribe. Yes he does look nice. He looked even nicer when he wore a leather Skirt(Kilt) for the MTV awards, some time ago. Ding Dong! Lol.

* Hi James, glad you liked it. As you are from Africa, I'm wondering how you wear your hair. Simple afro, cornrows, baldy, braids or Rasta? I know you'll change your Avatar one day and I'll find out, :)

* Thanks for sharing Philipo - I should link it in my page, but HP might have already done that.

The Bald look does suit some people and it suits you too. :)

Black men seem to have the best skin color and head shape for the total shaved head look.

The lighter the skin color of white males the harsher the look. It looks so harsh on some of them, that it is liking staring into the Sun. This only my perception and not a criticism.

Hi Lady_E,

To me bald men espcially who shave their head are such turn off, because in Hinduism guys only shave their head when their father dies,

Hi Metal head

It's nice you can still wear your hair in a stylish way. I like Vin Diesel - He looks really cool, which means your shaved head must suit you too.
