Balding at the Crown – What to Consider

For about 50% of men, balding at the crown will never happen to them. However, for the other 50%, you’re going to experience some form of baldness by the age of 50. There’s no need to worry; this article is meant for you.

It is packed with key information that will help you reverse and rejuvenate your hair growth. But first things first. What do you do when you notice that your thick hair is thinning at the crown? This is the first question that comes to mind when men notice they are losing hair. And it`s for a good reason, since no one likes to look old. Well, to answer this, it’s important to understand that there are two methods of handling balding at the crown. The first involves home based care that aims to reverse your losses and preserve the remaining hair while the second method involves a trip to your family doctor. The following is a quick walk through of what to do and what not to do when you are balding at the crown.

It’s almost important to note that here at baldinglife.com, we’re massive advocates of accepting going bald and not stressing about it too much. I’ve been completely bald for many years, and during that initial first few years, going bald can be quite daunting. But now, I just shave it all off. However after a while, you’ll get used to it and accept your new, shiny headed self. However, for those not ready to yet accept their baldness (no judgements here), this article is for you.

Consult your doctor

This should be your first step when you notice that you are balding at the crown. Is it important? Yes, it is very important. The reason being that you may have a condition called Male Pattern Baldness (MPB). This is a by far the most common cause of balding at the crown in men. It occurs when Dihydrotestosterone attaches to your hair follicles weakening them and causing them to fall out. Incase your doctor diagnoses you with MPB you will be put on medication that will help you reverse the hair loss.

Don’t make it worse

will-smith-balding

Once you notice that you are balding at the crown, then you can choose to try to reduce the pace at which you are losing your hair. This will include losing all your tight caps and hats that are too tight. This is because they restrict blood circulation in the scalp and also reduce air circulation between the hair follicles. Some studies say that this increases hair loss drastically (I’m not too sure myself, but either way it’s not the end of the world to stop wearing hats, right?). And for those who smoke, then you will have to choose between smoking and retaining your hair. This is because smoking has been found to cause hair loss too.

The blow dryer is your best friend

Forget about the towels, blow dryer is your best friend when you are losing hair. This is because towels generally cause more strain on your hair, which is the last thing you want if you’re trying to cling on to those last few strands. A blow dryer will not strain your hair in the same way, and actually drys it well while separating the hair strands, making it appear thicker than it actually is. This is what you want when your hair is thinning out – thicker appearing hair!

Pay a visit to your barber

If you’ve tried everything but no matter what you do and you can’t seem to make the bald spot less conspicuous, good cut from your barber may go a long way in helping you achieve this goal. A precise and well positioned cut will create an illusion of your hair being evenly distributed. This will create time for you to regrow your own hair. In the end they will never notice the difference.

Wash your hair

Well, this may seem basic, but trust me, it goes a long way in helping your hair to stay healthy and rid it of fungal infection. Fungal infection doesn`t improve balding in any way. In fact, it makes it worse. As such, always clean your hair with shampoo and apply the ketaconazole cream from time to time. This ensures your hair is oil free and healthy. Needless to say, healthy hair is less prone to thinning out and hence serves to fight against balding at the crown.

Who are the Sexiest Bald Men for Baldspiration?

I get it. We all have those days where we wish we had long, flowing locks of hair. Some days, I crawl out of bed and just wish I could grow my hair out like Samson. But, we all know that the source of our power isn’t truly in our hair; in fact, there are many studies that show going bald is indeed a sign of power and virility.

Yet, there are days when I get a bit down about not having the option to have a mohawk. So, what do I do on those days to reaffirm myself of my masculinity? You guessed it. I have a look at the sexiest bald men I can find that show us there’s no shame in going bald. These guys are some of the best forms of baldspiration around today. You’ll find the usual suspects, but also some others you might not have heard of.

Jason Statham

 

jason-statham

 

We start the list off with Hollywood hunk Jason Statham. The likelihood is you’ve heard about this balding beauty from featuring in a variety of good (think Snatch) and extremely bad (think Revolver) movies over the past few decades.

Coupled with his strong jawline and great physique, Jason is a great role model for anyone looking for some baldspiration. One of the first things to do when you realise you’re going bald is to consider hopping on the gym train. Defining that jawline can make you infinitely more confident about your appearance. Saying this, Jason gets bonus points for letting his remaining hair grow out and not shaving it totally bald. Not because it looks better, I personally prefer a completely shaven head. It’s just he clearly doesn’t give a f**k what anyone thinks; and it works.

There’s no doubt that Jason is a good looking fella, and he’s definitely had his fair share of the ladies. He’s settled down now with model Rosie Huntingdon-Whiteley; not too bad for a balding fella, eh?

 

Zinedine Zidane

zinedine-zidane

Zinedine Zidane, or Zizou, is one of the greatest soccer (or football) players of all time. After playing for some of the biggest clubs in the world like Juventus, he then advanced into his managerial career at Real Madrid, where he was also a player.

He started balding in his early twenties and would shamelessly rep the bald look without shaving. It didn’t matter to him as long as he was playing soccer and scoring goals. His charismatic nature and French nonchalance added to his attractiveness, as we all know confidence is sexy.

Zidane is a prime example of a man who has matured with grace. In fact, I would argue with you that Zinedine actually looks better now than back in his playing days. He clearly uses a head shaver every few days, and his current look totally works.

 

Milan Vukmirovic

Milan-Vukmirovic

I don’t blame you for not having heard of Milan Vukmirovic. He’s not mentioned in the media every single day, and isn’t a hollywood superstar like some of the other mentions in our list. But for me, he’s the most important feature, and here’s why.

Milan is an award winning fashion designer who has worked with many brands like Gucci and Trussardi. Though you might not have heard of him, he’s been a major influence in the fashion industry over previous decades. You can Google his name to get tons of fashion inspiration as he’s probably the best dressed bald man in the entire world.

Milan is a massive advocate of maintaining a good physique. By good, this doesn’t necessarily mean super muscly. You don’t have to be super muscular to pull off the bald look. Like Milan, you can just aim for a nice lean physique that helps accentuate your features.

 

Bruce Willis

bruce-willisbruce-willis

You knew he’d be on here. No list of the sexiest bald men would be complete without Bruce, who helped pioneer the baldy movement back in the 80s with the ultimate action movie Die Hard.

Bruce’s stages of balding have been clear to see for the public throughout his acting career. This didn’t stop him from becoming one of the biggest movie stars in the world. In fact, it probably helped him.

As balding is synonymous with power, Bruce’s balding look made him perfect for roles as an action hero.

 

Stanley Tucci

stanley-tucci

Stanley Tucci is pretty well known for as a film director, writer and producer. He really became apparent to the younger generation for his role in The Hunger Games and The Lovely Bones, for which he was nominated for an Academy Award.

Unlike his character in The Lovely Bones who sports a horrific combover, in real life Tucci has opted for the complete shave. It no doubt suits him a lot more than the other alternative.

Stanley jokes in this video that being bald ‘won’t ever be in’.

We think you’re wrong, Stanley.

Pep Guardiola

Pep-Guardiola

Okay, I know it’s another soccer player but I’m trying to feature a few of the sexiest bald men that you don’t see plastered over every internet site *cough* The Rock *cough*.

As well as being a fantastic footballer, Pep has gone on to have a successful managerial carer in the Spanish, German and English League.

It’s no secret that Pep is an attractive man. His hispanic roots give give a darker skin tone which really suits his suave bald look. Although you can’t change your ethnicity, you can get yourself a nice tan if you’re a caucasian male. This will undoubtedly gain you a few points on the sexy scale.

 

Michael Jordan

michael-jordan

It’s common knowledge that going bald is not that bigger deal for black guys. Why? It could be the lack of stark contrast and inability to see the horseshoe around the back of the head. It could be that the majority of black guys seem to cut their hair pretty short anyway. Or, it could be that bald black guys just look way cooler than everyone else.

Anyway, the title of the ‘quintessential bald black guy’ is debatable; honourable mentions go out to Tyrese Gibson and Damon Wayans for also pulling this look off with ease. But Michael Jordan pipped these two fellas to the post; he’s definitely one of the sexiest bald men of all time.

His athletic physique and dominance in sport propelled MJ to global superstar. We’re sure it was a lot easier to focus when he didn’t have to worry about going to the barbers anymore.

 

The Rock

the-rock

Most of the features on our list weren’t massive muscular guys.  This was kind of proving a point that you don’t have to be ripped to look good and be confident as a bald man. Saying this, The Rock definitely suits the big, bulky bald look.

After he started receding in his thirties, he took to shaving it right down to the skin. Whilst going bald can be quite a distressing time for most men, it wasn’t that bigger deal for Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Maybe it’s because he knew people were more interested in his charismatic personality that if he had hair on his head or not.

Whilst you don’t have to be muscly to pull off the bald look, it can definitely help. Even if it’s only for self confidence, going to the gym and improving your body can also help improve your mindset. If there’s anything women, and men, find attractive, it’s confidence.


Thanks for reading about the sexiest bald men! Be sure to check out some of our other great posts and to check which head shaver is best for you!

Why the Toupee went out of Fashion

Whilst you might still see the occasional toupee on an older gentleman, the majority of people have disregarded the need for a toupee. The toupee, once an essential for the disheartened balding man, has declined rapidly in recent years. And we couldn’t be happier about it.

You’ll struggle to find a man who openly talks about his toupee. In fact, you’ll rarely find a man even wearing a toupee nowadays, and if you do, you likely wouldn’t know it. Toupees have advanced dramatically in their appearance. With improvements in technology, it’s hard to distinguish between a toupee and real hair. However, this is only the case if you can afford an expensive option, as cheaper options tend to be of a lower quality.

The costs definitely add up

Much like Minoxidil and other baldness preventing practices, toupees aren’t cheap. In fact nowadays they’re cheaper than ever, but that still hasn’t helped their popularity.

After all things are considered, the average monthly price of a toupee can range anywhere between $50-300+ dollars a month. Now ask yourself this; would you pay $36,000 for 10 years of wearing a toupee? No, we wouldn’t either. It’s far easier to just accept balding and embrace it.

If you’re wondering why the costs are so high, it’s because modern toupees need a lot of maintenance. In fact, many toupee deals have a monthly maintenance scheme that you need to sign up for. Another issue with wearing a toupee is that you can’t just have one; having 2 or 3 toupees is a necessity. By having three toupees, you have one to wear, one being cleaned and another to be a spare.

Have toupees ever been in fashion?

Despite popular belief, toupees were never actually as popular as they’re perceived to have been. They’ve been used for comic relief since the early 1930’s, and were famously ridiculed in a Monty Python sketch in the 1960’s;

Whilst there are they did genuinely reach a small amount of popularity in the 60’s and 70’s, there’s no doubt that they have never truly been fashionable. They have always been considered as a ‘last resort’. One of the reasons that toupees became so popular is that in the mainstream film industry, actors were required to be handsome. Now, evidently nowadays we can realise that you don’t need a full head of hair to be handsome – a al Bruce Willis – but back in those days, it was a necessity.

Whilst toupees might have been popular amongst celebrities and those in the media, they weren’t for everyday folk. This is likely due to their high price and their often mocked status by many comedians.

The first real breakthrough actors to show us that a toupee wasn’t a necessity were Telly Savalas and Yul Brynner – the latter of whom shaved his head for his role in The King and I.

yul-brynner

So… What really caused their (limited) popularity to decrease?

There are a few reasons that toupees have become less popular over recent years. Whilst it’s certainly a combination of things, it’s pretty clear what the primary reason for this is. The answer? Technology.

 

Yes, the expense of toupees is a factor. Yes, the fact toupees have been mocked openly in the media also matters. But nothing has had a greater negative impact on the toupee industry than technology. For those who really aren’t happy with their balding state, there are now better and more sustainable options than using a toupee.

Although hair transplants have been present for more than 70 years, the quality of them improved dramatically in the late eighties. This technology improves year upon year, making them a genuine option for people who wish to revive their former self. Although this method is expensive, it has genuine results.

Of course, another method of combatting hair loss is using minoxidil. When was minoxidil discovered? Again, in the late eighties Rogaine launched their minoxidil brand, which became instantly popular with men worldwide. Proven by scientists to help reduce the speed of hair loss, this too contributed to the dramatic decrease in toupee sales.

Conclusion

It isn’t for me to say whether I think a toupee, minoxidil or a hair transplant is the correct option for someone to choose. Whilst I would never advertise these methods, this is truly down to the individual to decide whether this will help satisfy them and improve their quality of life.

I can, however say that I am a happily bald man. I’ve never thought about trying any of these methods to help with hair loss, because in my eyes, it’s not something that needs ‘help’. It is a natural occurrence in over 50% of men around the globe. I’ve accepted it, and hopefully you will too.
