Curse your hair loss if you want, but with a few steps, you can sport a look that truly shines.
Step 1: Go for it
Have confidence in your appearance — you’ve lost your hair, not your mojo. Forget the comb-over, roll up the rug, and come to terms with your changing hairline.
Step 2: Make it smooth
Once you’ve embraced your baldness, go for broke. Either buzz your hair down with an electric trimmer or take it all off with a shaving razor.
If you use a razor, use shaving cream to avoid unsightly razor burn.
Step 3: Shine on
Put some effort into your appearance and keep that pate moisturized. Use a product designed to give you a slick sheen, or spread a little body lotion or baby oil on your head daily.
Step 4: Protect it
Wear sunscreen or a hat when you’re outdoors to protect your skin from the sun’s UV rays, which, in addition to other health risks, can roughen up your head’s smooth surface.
If you wear a hat, give it some style; you need to rock your cap as much as your bald head.
Step 5: Get into it
Make the most of opportunities to use that smooth surface; on Halloween, go as a well-known bald celebrity, historical figure, athlete, or mascot.
Step 6: Keep it up
Keep up with your grooming and head care — the secret to rocking any look is owning it and being proud of who you are.
