If you’re bald or balding, then this is definitely going to relate to you. You’ve undoubtedly heard or read people saying that “some people just suit a bald head” or that some guys just look good bald. They then proceed to give you a list of people who look good bald – usually The Rock, Jason Statham, Vin Diesel.. you know, all guys with perfect bodies and great facial aesthetics. But what about if you’re not these guys; what about if you’re bald with big ears?
Well, the number one thing that you can do if you’re going bald and you have large ears is to accept it. There’s not much that you can do about going bald, and whilst there are things that you can do to slow down the process, it’s an inevitability in the long run.
Here are a few of the options that you have if you’re going bald, but you’re slightly worried because you have big ears.
My main pieces of advice would be to literally accept that you have big ears, and own it. You are you – and this is the way that you were created.
I understand when people talk about wanting to lose weight, or wanting to get whiter teeth and stuff like that. These are things that you easily have the power to change, and are a circumstance of your lifestyle. For guys, your body is just the way that you was born – and it’s best to accept yourself as you are. This goes for your big ears, or your nose, or your penis or whatever. Without surgery, those things aren’t going to change, so it’s probably best for you to accept yourself as you are. The same way that some women are obsessed about their breasts or their butt.. does it really matter that much in the grand scheme of things?
The likelihood is that you’re worried about your big ears affecting your attractiveness. Well, although a bald head with big ears is quite striking at first, there’s a ton of other things people will rate more important than your big ears. Appearance is only skin deep,
Improve other areas of your physical appearance
Whilst you shouldn’t be concerned too much about what you was born with, you can alter other areas of your appearance. Your physical appearance does give an indication of who you are – and whilst you can’t change your ears without surgery, you can change other areas of your appearance.
Get in shape
One of the main things that you’ll want to do if you’re going bald (big ears, small ears, no ears – any baldy should take this advice!) is to get into better shape. This doesn’t necessarily mean you need to hit the gym three times a day and take a ton of juice – no, getting into better shape can just be shifting those extra Christmas lbs.
If you’re a bit podgy, losing weight will change your facial aesthetics completely. A double chin is never, ever going to be attractive! Getting rid of those extra pounds is undoubtedly your first step on the way to looking, and more importantly feeling, better.
Take more care of your other features
Like I’ve said, you don’t have much control over some of your physical features. But there are certain physical features that you do have control over.
For example, your teeth. Having clean teeth is almost a must for any bald guy, as a woman is going to be instantly drawn to your face. Your teeth are one of the first things that your potential partner will look at anyway, so making sure their clean and white is a great way to attract others.
It goes without saying that you should take good care of other areas on your face. Keeping your nose hairs plucked and your eyebrows on point – no unibrows, please!
Anyway, the point is that you should take more control of the things that you can, and accept the things that you cannot.
For most bald guys, you’ll have the option to grow yourself some facial hair. This can help contrast between your shiny head and the rest of your body, so considering a beard is a great option for a baldy.
If you’re bald with big ears, then you could consider growing yourself out a thicker beard. Doing this can draw attention away from your ears, and make them look more in proportion with the rest of your body. The best example of this is undoubtedly Will Smith as Deadshot in the film Suicide Squad;
Will Smith, a guy famed for having massive ears throughout his entire career, manages to pull the bald head look off with ease. How? Well, the well groomed beard helps attract attention away from the ears and towards his handsome face. Using a beard in the same way is a good option for those big ears like the Fresh Prince.
Ear Correction Surgery
For all that I babble on about accepting yourself as you are, I won’t get through to everybody. And there’s nothing wrong with that.
If you really can’t accept your ears and it’s causing you extreme psychological distress, then you can consider getting ear surgery.
This can be done in two ways. One option is that they can actually take cartilage out of your ears to make them smaller. This is a pretty extreme length to go to, so you need to be sure that this is genuinely something that you want. Any type of surgery like this occurs risks, so you should do some thorough research before partaking in this kind of surgery.
Another option is to get your ears pinned back. This is actually a pretty common thing for children and younger people to have done, and it is done using the same method as a full surgery. You can have a more in depth look at the method used here, but essentially it involves making a small incision into the ear and reshaping it.
This can be a good way to deal with large ears, whether you’re balding or not.
