Either use an electric razor to go really low with it, or go for a real razor and just shave it all off. Both looks are fine, but the sooner you accept that baldness is part of your future, the sooner you start shaving your head, and the more people accept and get used to you as a handsome bald gentleman.

The same products you can use on your face, you can use on the top of your head to stave off flakes and to protect you from sun damage. Guys, you should be rocking at least SPF 15 every day, and if you’re heading out for a day in the sun please protect your head as well as the rest of you.

Being bald is natural, it’s attractive, and it’s increasingly common. If you’re a bald man, walk tall and know you’re not alone. As my buddy Frank says, “being bald is being.” It’s your natural state, and the feeling of not covering up, not using fiber sprays to mask your spot, or gel to create a cover-up has to be a liberating kind of feeling.
